We were so happy to have such amazing food available at the hotel. Kudos to the Chef and Staff for their amazing service and menu over Thanksgiving Weekend.
We were looking forward to thanksgiving dinner and we were thrilled with the food and the experience. The turkey was moist, the combination of veggies and yam complemented beautifully. Friendly, engaging staff.
Drove past this place many time and finally decided to make a reservation for dinner and were were not disappointed. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere was amazing and cozy, we were lucky enough to have a table right in front of the fireplace. We have the steak and duck, both were amazing. Definitely will be returning for dinner again. Definitely worth the drive to get here. Probably booking rooms for a few nights to try the rest of the menu! Please go here, places like this are fading away and are a treasure to have and to visit!
Great food and fine choices. The server was personable, pleasant and very helpful. In this crisis, all protocols were carefully observed and we were confident of the attention to safety.
Wonderful dining experience with very friendly staff. Food was delicious! We ate three different meals and all were fantastic! We loved the ambiance and all the helpful hiking suggestions!
I would give this place more stars if I could. We literally stumbled upon this place at the last minute. Stayed at the lodge and booked dinner. It was outstanding. The salad was fresh and perfectly dressed. We had the steak and the beef ribs. Both were cooked perfectly. The vegetables on the side were also perfectly cooked. It was followed by two small but delicious desserts - chocolate mousse and panna cotta. We would go out of our way to come back here, hike and eat. We’ve had very expensive dinners all over the world and this would challenge any of them for quality.
The prices were very high for the food.
The food looks amazing in regards to how they plate it. The taste is just o.k, nothing special. Prices are way to high for what you get. 30 dollars for a very small piece of lasagne, 51 dollars for a very small piece of steak. Not worth it at all.
A quiet and relaxing spot to unwind after a day in the mountains. Great service was offered by Maria. The 3 course meal is the way to go with the best value. The soup was to die for, the beef rib was good, portion small though. The chocolate mousse to end the meal was superb.
Food was fantastic. Service was great. Compliments to the chef and Vicky was so wonderful
The service, food, ambience and especially the staff were just great.
the meal was delicious and excellent value .Our server Vicki was friendly efficient and helpful. Wonderful night
For dinner the steak is worth it, and the salmon was delicious also. The portion of sides could be more, but it was all tasty. The rest of the menu looked equally appealing at nearby tables.
Breakfast was great too, but the service was not as good as the evening.
Great friendly staff. Food was very good. Casual dining.
Amazing food and selection, would definitely return if in the Area again
Food was just about flavor without lots seasoning and gave the food original taste. Service was great.
We had the braised short rib and duck offered on the Chef’s 3-course menu selection. Dinners were superb - very tasty, a good variety of seasonal vegetables, well presented, and excellent service. Highly recommend The Kitchen at Sunwapta Falls.
Amazing food & Excellent service! Everything was presented beautifully
Service was great, very friendly staff. Food was good, just very expensive for having still left hungry.
Your choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner are all wonderful. Staff and scenery made dining delightful.
Fantastic food atmosphere and service. Highly recommend this restaurant
The food was spectacular. I had Duck which was truly mouthwatering . Our daughter had the charred salmon which she said was the best she had ever had. My husband had the special that he throughly enjoyed. The service was quick and friendly. We had booked for a later spot, we asked if we could eat earlier and they were happy to sit us. Yes it may be classed as expensive, however, this is not your usual menu, it was cooked superbly, beautifully presented and something a little different.Would so like to eat there again
A delicious meal with wonderful scenery! We came to enjoy an off the beaten path stay at Sunwapta Lodge. Our meal was flavourful and filling. Looking forward to trying their breakfast and lunch menu during our stay.
Servers were pleasant and efficient. Very helpful in spite of the covid-19 pandemic. Food was very satisfying.
The food and service were outstanding. Will always make sure to plan on having dinner at Sunwapta whenever we are able to be there.
Thank you for a great experience.
The service here was great! I would definitely come again. They were very accommodating for my allergies as well. The prices were comparable to Jasper or any other restaurant that I have been to. It was not overly pricey. And the servings were perfect!
We had a wonderful dinner. The food was excellent (had salmon and steak) and the service was the best. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Very good food and menu selection. Nice wine list. The restaurant handled the COVID19 issue very well, helping us feel safe well still allowing us to enjoy the evening.
Overall the experience was good. We were at the resort for our anniversary. Right away we were brought champagne on the house to celebrate. The food was good. Prices were pretty high for anything you got their. We didn’t realize that the restaurant was the only way to get food other than driving back to jasper for an hour. Nothing was included in the room and when I looked for things like breakfast the prices were insane. Ex. 5$ for a mini box of cereal or 10$ for oatmeal!
Delicious food. Great Service. Warm welcoming environment. Ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both were delicious.
Really enjoyed it. Staff were excellent
Would eat there again
Well presented, unique options, perfect portions, nice ambience. Our compliments to the chef and staff.
The food is very expensive for the amount you get. There is a limited selection on the menu as well.
Great dinner presentation! Very tasty. A little on the pricey side but it's expected in such a remote area of the parks. Staff were very friendly, quick and helpful.
Always love to eat at Sunwapta! The rustic atmosphere in a secluded location combined with fine dining quality of food and impeccable service make this experience wonderful. The staff accomplished all this while maintaining the new norm of distancing. A visit to the falls tops off a great evening. My thanks to everybody who can make this happen at such a challenging time!
Wonderful food, service, ambiance
Martin was a great server
Totally exceeded my expectations! The services were friendly and personal. The food was wonderful!! Had the onion soup and beef tenderloin and they were fantastic! Definitely a must-visit while traveling along the icefield parkway.
The food was nice enough but over priced due to the location. Eat there or go without!
Wonderful hospitality. Personal attention from the owner, great food and service.
Super food in an iconic location. Friendly staff who spoke many languages.
Patrons from around the world so this is great.
Relaxing end of the day
Friendly & helpful service with a good choice of food, including vegetarian. Everything was tasty & well- presented. Nice rustic feel to the restaurant with great views.
