    Food and service was great. Nice gem in residential neighbourhood. Can be noisy with small dining area and open kitchen area. Only negative was the doors were left open during our meal and it was a little cool outside.

    We loved the Market Bistro. French onion soup was excellent and mushroom soup very good. My husband and I both had the lamb shank special which was very good with broccoli and delicious brown butter gnocchi. Lemon pie for dessert is a must!! Service was excellent! Since it was Wine Wednesday, we were offered a glass of Chardonnay or Malbec for $5C each. Both were quite good, not “bottom of the barrel” wines. We would definitely go back!

    I live close, and I have eaten here many times, this time I was disappointed in the food and service. The server frankly was struf=ggling with English and messed up the order. She was trying hard to rush our party to order. The food has gone down. I ordered French onion soup and mussels. The soup was literally boiling when it came to the table next to no cheese on it. The mussels were a very small [portion compared to the last time, and the mussels them selves were small and many not opened, Used to come with fresh focaccia bread to dip, now just four pieces of dried-out bread. Over all a disappointing evening with friends from out of town.

    We dined at the Market Bistro twice during our 7 day stay in Canmore. The first time was so delicious we had to go back for more. The vegetable lasagna was very tasty and enough to share along with the caprese salad and hot out of the oven baguette.

    Tuesday after Labour Day. Right after opening at Noon. We sat inside, as we had just driven though rain on our drive in. We were the only couple inside; there were a couple other small parties outside. Not busy. Approximately 7 or 8 employees, probably outnumbered the clients at the time. The reason I mention this is that there were flies buzzing us and our food the whole time we were there. But my wife and I seemed to be the only people indoors that had any concerns about the flies. I noticed employees using laptops, looking at phones, putting pizza boxes together, and other non-urgent activities; however, no one seemed to have any problem with the aggressive flies. The food was very good. We shared a meatball appetizer, followed by a mushroom risotto and a spagetti puttanesca. Unfortunately, our dining experience was ruined, due to having to constantly shoo flies away from us, our table, and our food. Have to wonder if flies were on our food prior to its arrival at our table.

    The food was incredible, and the location is beautiful. The restaurant is a family run establishment that has a great atmosphere. Our main courses were quite a bit delayed after the appetizer, but the servers were friendly, kind and helpful. Other than the hiccup with the food delay, the experience was incredible. Highly recommended!

    We are returning customers because we love their steaks! :) but I really wish that their kid menu was better. We ordered a cheese pizza from the kid menu and unfortunately it was disappointing. We ended up boxing it up and taking home but we couldn’t eat it the next day because it was dry and tasteless. We’ll keep going back because otherwise the food is excellent, staff is friendly and it’s always a pleasant dining experience. Will probably pass on the kid menu next time though :)

    While vacationing in Banff we asked for an outdoor table for an early dinner. Banff is very crowded in summer, so there were plenty of pedestrians to watch. But the noise did not keep us from enjoying our conversation. Dinner was delicious as were the drinks.

    With inflation and the cost of everything going skyrocketing, our dining out dollars are really important to us. We are eating out less and are demanding really outstanding value for our dollar. You met the high mark! It was an awesome meal and worth each hard earned penny. We will definitely be back. Thank you.... and your service was also top notch!
