    My daughter and I were very disappointed with the service!!! He was very inexperienced. We had the rib eye steak that had a sauce. The sauce was very tasty but too salty. I usually recommend your restaurant but now I am not sure I will continue to do so.

    The food was lovely. The service was terrible, waited over 20 mins to get water, server was clueless about the menu (needed us to show him margarita pizza on the menu), when the food came we had no cutlery, had to get up and find the waiter to get the bill and the bill took over 15mins to reach our table. Although the food was great and perfectly timely.

    Caprese salad was below average because of unripe and hard tomatoes. Flat iron steak was very average for the price. Service was good and attentive but does not make up for the somewhat disappointing food. Would not ultimately recommend The Market Bistro.

    After sipping pre-dinner drinks on the patio, we ordered starters and mains. The food was very good, and was served with attention paid to plating appearance. I particularly enjoyed the eggplant starter, and my wife her ribeye steak that was a special feature for the evening. The steak was perfectly done, and was served with a delicious peppercorn sauce. In addition, the service was attentive and non-intrusive, so we had no complaints. Overall, the restuarant exceeded our expecations, and we would certainly go back again.We would also recommend it to friends.

    Our group of 4 came in on Sunday night for an amazing meal at The Market Bistro. The staff were welcoming and attentive right from the beginning. The Salmon and Prawn dish was perfection - salmon could not have been better cooked and the prawns were tasty. Hands down the best dish I have had in a long time. Everyone was happy with the atmosphere. Will be returning in the future.

    Food was ok to say the least. I had a way overcooked flatiron steak. The salmon had no flavour. Even the drinks were not good. This place had good reviews before, now I see new management apparently… I would not recommend this, needs a lot of work.

    Dined outdoor on the large patio which was beautiful. Initially we were told we would have to sit on the adjacent side as we were only 2. They finally said they would make an “exception” for us. Every table there was open except 2, and even at the end the patio wasn’t full. The caprese salad was way overpriced at $19. The pasta was good, penne pollo. Overall though I. don’t think we will be back.

    Food was mediocre at best. Not awful but not memorable. Just meh. Not enough umbrellas for when some rain started. Staff pleasant enough but a little confused and disorganized. Reading recent reviews that restaurant under new management - wish I had paid more attention to those reviews. Maybe some growing pains for new management. Don’t see coming back.

    Absolutely top notch food, I had the lamb shank from the specials board which was perfectly cooked and very delicious and my husband had the veal which he also said was fantastic. Great selection of gluten free options. Really nice cocktails. we live locally and have seen the bistro evolve and it is at it's best at the moment. We will definitely go back.

    The food was tremendous. Unfortunately from my seat I was looking straight at the dishwasher washing dishes the entire time. There were a couple of other tables that were also terrible. Ambience was nonexistent. But again we thought the food was very very good. Ask for a table close to the door.

    Our meal was excellent. We especially loved the steaks! The staff was friendly and the food arrived super quickly! I did think that the kids menu could use some improvement though. We ordered pasta for my daughter and it was just a big bowl of penne with creamy sauce; it looked plain and not very appetizing which was somewhat disappointing. My daughter ended up eating the food off my plate and mostly filled up on the baguette dipped in olive oil/vinegar. Overall she ate well but her pasta was left untouched. We’d definitely go back but probably won’t be ordering from the kids menu unless new items are added to it :)

    We had an excellent meal at the Market Bistro and would definitely go back. We ordered the meatballs as a starter and there were very tasty with a lovely sauce. That could be whole meal!! My husband ordered the Pollo Penne and said it was the best he's ever had and I had the Gorgonzola Gnocchi and it was very tasty. Service was good and they were really busy but still pleasant. I've seen reviews saying that the amount of food for the price was not good but that was definitely not our experience. We couldn't finish everything and ended up taking home half of everything we ordered. Love this place and will be back the next time we are in Canmore.
