                                                We had the wedge salad which had a buttermilk tangy dressing that was refreshing and delicious for mains we had Gnocchi and Pheasant which were both beautifully presented and delicious. For dessert we had the S’mores and it was so good.

                                                Went out for a much needed date night with the Mrs. and this did not disappoint at all. The smoked ol' fashioned was the highlight of the night for me, but the meals were amazing. Highly recommend if you have the cash to spend.

                                                Loved the food, it wasn’t what we were expecting, but it brought opus out of our comfort zone and the food was delicious. Right portions, fair price. The view out over the lake was the perfect setting.

                                                I went as a family of 4 adults, expecting to mainly enjoy the view having seen mixed reviews regarding the food/service/venue. We ordered 2 appetizers (scallops, bison tartar) which were both delicious and yes small servings, but the 4 of us felt it was a perfectly satisfying amount as an appetizer. For the main, two of us ordered the pork (don't be fooled by the name that starts with "bear", that's just the name of the farm they come from), bison, and trout. Servings may look quite small, as is with most fancier/gourmet foods, but if you take your time enjoying the food and the views and your choice of drink and chat with your family/friends, it will be satisfying. Not enough to get you FULL but just full enough (which is the healthy amount to aim for in general). If you do feel you have a larger appetite, getting some appetizers will definitely be helpful. Perhaps because we went with expectations of possibly being let down, all of us had a great experience. The view of the lake was beautiful, staff were all friendly and we were treated respectfully, it was a fancier setting but also more casual given the resort setting, and food felt high quality as well. Would highly recommend, just adjust your portion expectations accordingly. It definitely wasn't smaller portions compared to other fine dining I've tried. Also doesn't hurt to have some snacks waiting in the car/hotel for after if you do still have some room left after haha.

                                                I would have liked to been able to score our dinner experience at Outstanding, however, due to the fact that we were not in the main dining room for our dining this brought the rating down. Isaac our waiter was the best - we really enjoyed Isaac as he was very knowledgeable with any questions asked about the menu. We feel that we may have missed out on some ambience and lake views by not being in the main dining room (dining room was not being used due to an event the next day).

                                                The Good: We ordered the bison, which was very tender and the sauce was delicious. The view was beautiful. The Bad: It took 30 minutes from when we were seated to get our drinks. Luckily we ordered our meal at the same time. Although the sauce was good there was hardly any of it on the plate and the waitress didn’t check on us until the end of the meal. We also had butter knives to cut the bison. And the potatoes and broccoli had no flavour. For $40/plate, I left hungry. Also, when we made the reservation we noted it was our honeymoon and they didn’t acknowledge it at all. In summary, the food is over priced and the service was sub-par. I won’t be returning.

                                                We went to The Pines for our 30th Anniversary. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings and it was a truly memorable experience. The food and the pairs wines were all amazing. The experience was amazing. The elk grazing out front were an added bonus.

                                                Small portions of the bison. Tasted very good but not much meat for $40.00. Service was extremely slow. No mention of our special event (anniversary) yet asked this question when booking.

                                                This was our 4th visit and we were so disappointed. The staff didn't seem to be totally with it. Our order was picked up by another server and delivered to one of their tables. Our server brought the bill told there was no rush, barely finished our coffee and see was hovering with the machine for us to pay

                                                The restaurant is located in front of Pyramid lake, with amazing views of the lake and reflections of the trees and mountains in the water. We arrived at dusk, and the ambiance was great. We have some food restrictions and the server helped us sort out the menu items and made changes to accommodate our needs. The food was very good and we immensely loved it. The portion sizes of the dishes was not large but we left the place full and very happy.

                                                Staff was very helpful with choices and wine paring although we had asked for wine to be brought with our main and we had to remind that we had ordered wine. The scallop starter was very tasty but.. 3 bay scallops? I figured for the price it would be sea scallops. Main was Bison Tenderloin and I would recommend this choice. I did have issue with the dessert and was a bit disappointed with that but I think just maybe I will send them easy fix for that. Had the breakfast there the next morning and had the eggs Bennie. Delish. Enjoyed my start to the day and coffee was so nice and hot and fresh.

                                                They did not advise us that they were hosting a wedding. We were seated in an overflow section that resembled a meeting room. We got up and left. We had driven half an hour to get to the restaurant.

                                                Absolute waste of money .. having paid for top notch cuisine ... we got utter tasteless non existant portion waste. Not recommended at all. Portions are hard to find on the plate and better food at a take away.

                                                We had the wine pairing dinner which was a huge disappointment in terms of value for price. Although all was delicious, for $125 per person I would have expected more substantial portions. Our entire meal from appetizer to dessert could literally have fit in a coffee mug. For that price you shouldn’t have to go home hungry. Also, the wine pairings were minimal portions of BC wines that are readily available - nothing special. I would have rated it lower however our server (Isaac) was outstanding and the overall ambiance is lovely. We felt ripped off when we left.

                                                We had the experience dinner. Portions overall way to small. Wine hearing was just ok. Not worth 125pp. I would have loved full portions of at least main course and dessert. They have a great regular menu that I wish we tried instead.

                                                I enjoyed the overall experience, and I realize that the restaurant wants to differentiate itself from others in the area. But It would have been fantastic to offer a great tasting steak as one of the choices.

                                                We usually go tho the Pines when in Jasper and our meal last night was a reminder why. The decor and view enhance the experience. I had the Alberta on the plate special (only offered for 1 week in august) and all 3 courses were delicious my spouse had the trout starter and the pork. He was equally happy with his choices. Service was excellent.

                                                Our server was quite personable and we enjoyed her interaction. Because there was a wedding in the main dining area, we were just off to the side and the view of the lake was not as open as I had hoped. But the experience was enough to entice me back!

                                                We did the 5 Course with wine pairings and it was fantastic. Sat outside on the patio overlooking the lake, which meant the music was a bit quieter and we could enjoy all the people/dogs on the shore. The food was fabulous. Like lick your plate fabulous and the wine pairings were honestly unreal. Loved the fact that the wines were mostly from BC and from wineries that aren't completely mainstream (aka can't find in Costco). Huge shout outs to Isaac & Mark, our server and bartender, who were so damn knowledgeable and lovely. The restaurant and Lodge itself are rustic and beautiful, no pretensions because they know they serve excellent food and drinks. The price for the meal & drinks was more than fair, particularly given the quality.

                                                Prices on the menu hint that The Pines would be a first class high end restaurant......but it isn't. This place desperately needs a makeover. Dowdy comes to mind. True, windows offer a spectacular view of the lake but inside is no better than a cafeteria. Tables could use white table cloths, flowers and starched napkins. The menu is not extensive and the limited wine available is expensive. The best deal perhaps is the tasting menu with wine pairings at $125 a person. Service was excellent. Note: Breakfast is also served starting at 8AM. After eating go for a walk on the pier and watch the sunset. I recommend this restaurant because it will get you out of Jasper which, as a resort town doesn't hold a candle to Banff. (in my opinion). Cheers

                                                Loved the food at this restaurant overlooking Pyramid lake. Isaac took great care of us and was a great host. The food was fantastic. Not large plates, but tasty and well presented. Great flavours!. Overall, will visit again and The Pines made our trip to Jasper!

                                                We went to this restaurant because we stayed at the resort. The menu was very small and we barely knew what the items on the menu were. I am a picky eater and asked for the kids menu, but was denied. The bill was very expensive, but the portions were extremely small. Despite paying over $100 for two of us, we still had to order pizza afterwards. We do not recommend this restaurant.
