Beautiful setting. Hade a Vesper Martini and everything got better from there on. They had a bottle of William Le Fever Chablis which is very hard to find...made my wife’s day. We shared a Caesar salad and had their Filet. Not the greatest but hard to beat the View and are waitress was very very friendly and did a great job. Really enjoyed the evening.

Lovely meal on the patio after a round; spectacular views up the course. Food was very good. French Dip sandwich was the "best" hubby's ever tasted. Son's fish and chips were good, but were a tad heavy on the fat; curry coleslaw a unique addition. Niçoise was excellent, but should be listed under the "Small Plates" portion of the menu. Also, I prefer to have the potatoes warm. Still, great service and very good food. Would have liked to try dinner as the dining room looked like a lovely spot.

I visited Rustica a few years ago and would put it down as one of the best meals I've had in Canada. I'd read somewhere that they had updated the menu and look & feel of the restaurant to make it more casual so thought I would give it a go when I was in Banff again with my family.
Whilst the set menu does provide decent value the service and the ambience of the restaurant was really poor.
The staff were friendly enough but did not seem to have been trained on basic serving etiquette. My Dad was still eating his starter when they brought out mine and my Mum's main course which is really rude but we couldn't believe it when they then proceeded to bring out my Dad's main course despite there being no room on the table... Just felt really unprofessional.
Also, when we first arrived we noticed that they were playing the radio over the music system and hoped it was just because we were some of the first people in and they would change it. However when this didn't happen I asked them to change it, as hearing Ads for Subway didn't quite create the nice dining experience we expected (and lets be honest we payed for...) I was informed by the waitress that they only had radio stations to play over the system and so the only other option was to turn it off. As we had been joined by other diners in the restaurant by that point we decided to just leave it but then had to listen to Brian from Saskatoon answer questions for a chance to win some kind of trip whilst our meal was served...
The food was tasty and the steaks cooked perfectly but I would definitely not recommend Rustica as the experience is just not worth the trip out to the golf course nor the prices anymore.

I’ve been to your date night event in the past. That is what I booked on line but discovered that you substituted it with wine pairing menu. We decided to try it but totally disappointed in the value. The shrimp cocktail was 5 thawed out shrimp with no flavor served on panko crumbs saturated with oil and sprigs on grassy non flavorful laying on top. The rabbit was the best part of the meal. Over cooked but tasty. The chocolate mousse was disgusting. It tasted like powered jello with whip cream on top. Sorry but I won’t return to the Rustica. The waitress was uninformed and untrained and thankfully we were the only guests dining that night, that should have given us a clew!

I’ve heard great things about their dining room experience, however I can only comment on the Mother’s Day brunch we had. Waited 20 minutes for the server to come to our table even after trying to get her attention. It was not busy, maybe 8 tables on the patio at the time. The buffet style food was gross and there were no signs to tell you what anything was. For example the mystery meat potato dish that was covered in oil and hollandaise sauce. At $35 per person, we did not feel like we got the value for our money. Another server came to clear our plates and didn’t ask how our food was - it was like he knew how bad it was. We didn’t even go for dessert, we just wanted out of there.
Given that the golf course wasn’t open yet, I cut our server some slack but I can honestly say I won’t be back.

I have been many times and loved everything about it.
This trip was not good, they ran out of a few things on the menu, the portions of the food for price was very small, my party wanted to order a pizza after. It took over an hour for us to get our food. We found the server very fake.
Overall bad experience.

We were told by a few people that there was a new Chef at Rustica and it was recommended to check it out. To say our experience was amazing is an understatement. We had the boneless short rib dinner and we are still talking about how flavourful, tender, perfectly cooked it was. Our waitress Jenny-Lee was outstanding, attentive, knowledgeable and made our experience so enjoyable. The mountain views and ambience was the cherry on top! We have told many of our friends and we will for sure be coming back! Well done Rustica! Hats off to your new Chef!

Having dinner at the Rustica was a wonderful experience. The food was superb and the waiter always there taking care. He was prompt and helpful with our dinner selection.
It was my boyfriends birthday so upon making the reservation thru Open table I requested something special to mark the occasion. The dessert came out on the large plate with Happy Birthday written in chocolate on it.
Great place. Will definitely go back when in Canmore.

We planned a birthday dinner at Rustica and it was fantastic. We were seated by the window which overlooked the 18th hole of Silvertip, very nice scenery. The service here was top notch. The food was equally good. We had wings to start, they were good, just a tad bit pricey. Wife had the Chicken roulade which she liked and I had the Rib Eye. The steak was cooked perfectly, though I found it a tad bit salty. We shared root vegatable and brussel sprouts, both were very good. This was our first time eating at the restaurant and we are looking forward to a possible golf and dinner trip this summer.

I love that we could go and have a nice dinner without loud music. It was nice to be able to have a conversation and this is coming from a under 30 couple. The food was delicious and decent price for some but some things (60 dollar steaks) were more. 18 for wings but they were big and so good we highly recommend blue cheese hot. Then other prices were amazing. Like the best burger we have ever had at 15. The only disappointment was that my lava cake was not runny. The chocolate centre was still solid but the sauce and I scream with it was delicious.

Food was delicious. It was a little frustrating because the normal menu was unavailable, and we had to choose for the three course menu, so the selections were limited and it was a bit pricey ($60). However, the food made up for any frustration with lack of selection. The facility is beautiful. We would most definitely return.

Our experience was amazing! Isabelle went above and beyond to accommodate all of our food allergies and preferences.
Even though one of the boilers was broken and it was cold inside, we were placed beside the fireplace so we were warm!

The food was some of the best I’ve had at a steakhouse.

I would 110% recommend Rustica for an amazing experience! We were very happy and will be back again!

We had an over all good experience
I had heard such rave reviews but we were a bit disappointed the service was on the slow side and there were only 4 tables on there.

It took almost 30 minutes to get our drink order
When our main course came after a long wait the steak was cold. Everything else was hot.


The ambience in the restaurant is awesome. The wait staff were good but just needed to step up the pace!

We will go back whenever we are in Canmore again

Five of us went for Sunday brunch.
The service was very slow
The cold items were not replenished and the hot orders took over 45 min.

The egg sandwich was missing the egg.
The English muffins were cold and crunchy.

We were very disappointed. We spent over $100.

This was not typical for Rustica. I’m not sure what has happened.
