    We’ve been here roughly 6 times over the past 3 weeks. Amazing views and great ambiance (music iOS weak, same same same same playlist every time we come). I would recommend for a patio drink as the views are the best in the city (sorry Iron Goat). The food, different story. We keep trying and keeping getting disappointed. Points for effort but zero love in the food.

    We went for a Mother’s Day brunch. The English muffin or whatever they put the eggs Benny on was HARD, like I couldn’t cut it with a knife without using an excessive amount of force. The eggs were cooked properly and the sauce was ok. They sat us inside, at a table and chairs as we requested. most people were outside. Seeds from the trees were blowing into everyone’s food outside. We were very glad we sat inside due to that.

    We came for Mother's Day brunch and sat outside on the deck so we could enjoy the mountain views and sunshine. It was so terrific being able to order a la carte because we always overeat at buffets plus we can never justify eating $69 per person worth of food. My husband and I had the cheeseburger with soup (amazing cheese cauliflower soup); the burger was so filling we couldn't finish our soup. Our daughter had a breakfast bowl and loved it. We also had specialty coffees and mimosas. Great service, ambience and food. Would highly recommend!

    We had reservations for 18 people and an additional 10 showed up with us. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating with our group. They managed all of our requests and even managed to sit us all together. Can’t say enough about their kindness and flexibility with our reunion group. Thank you!

    Reserved a booth for two and was seated prior a large group with young children arrived. Table for them was also reserved. Would have been nice to be seated away from the large group as the restaurant was not busy. My wife and I were looking for a quiet place to have dinner and enjoy our conversation without having to talk over others.

    We have returned to the wood for the 4 time because we have always enjoyed their food. Unfortunately, we dined here on spring break and it feels like the restaurant was not at all prepared for such a busy dinner crowd. With multiple large groups there was only one waitress serving us all. At the end of the day we waited long period of time to order our food and drinks and even longer to receive them. Our appetizers and drinks came out extremely staggered and we needed to hunt down the waitress to even get another drink. When the main courses did arrive the kids meals were incorrect and the adult entrees were definitely not up to their previous standard. Expressing our concerns about the two poorly made entrees she did immediately remove them from the bill. Overall very disappointing, and we will definitely have to consider other venues when we are looking for good service and food.

    We booked this reservation for a milestone birthday. It was very obviously a special occasion and we were disappointed with our service. The service we received was subpar, and indifferent. The food was fine, the drinks were fine. Restaurant was nearly empty, we weren’t asked how our food was or if we wanted more drinks. No one of staff even wished the birthday girl a happy birthday. Upon reviewing the receipt this morning we realized we were charged for things we never received. No one in our large group will return after our experience. We do not recommend to others

    This was the last day of my best friend's 50th birthday weekend and our last night in Canmore and the group all decided on The Wood based on past experience from one of our party. 3 out of the 4 of us have particular dietary limitations (one diabetic, and two who need to limit starch, acidic foods and sugar). There are several delicious items on the menu that we were all able to adapt to suit our needs The service was attentive without being pushy and The food was outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful experience

Our server was so welcoming and friendly, she really made our night special. Next time we’re in Canmore we’ll stop in to try the regular menu.

    Our first time at The Wood was just as we'd hoped. The atmosphere spoke northern mountain escape. The food was so good! I personally had the open face grilled chicken and yam fries and it was the perfect portion and was delicious. The kids menu had pretty standard choices, my kids ate everything for once. My husband had a hamburger, which you can never really go wrong with. We will definitely go again next time we're in Canmore!
