About the restaurant
The Raven Bistro, located in the heart of Jasper, Alberta, offers Mediterranean fusion fare with local flair backed by a view of the mountains. We are so proud of our OpenTable Top 100 in Canada ranking! Our professional team all love being in Jasper and thrive on blending fresh ingredients to create memorable, quality dishes served in an intimate environment. The menu offers many vegan options and is malleable to those with dietary concerns. Paired with cocktails mixed with Alberta distilled spirits, Canadian Craft Beer and Canadian wines by the glass and bottle, this is the spot for a special evening out in Jasper.

We offer Happy Hour daily from 3-5:30 with all wines 1/2 price, all scotches 1/2 price and $5 beers.

About the restaurant
Ernest's Dining Room at NAIT has been aptly described as the "jewel in the crown" of Hokanson Centre for Culinary Arts in the School of Skilled Trades. Ernest's decor is described as "understated elegance". Tasteful compliments of cherry wood and brass highlights, a beautiful rock feature wall, muted lighting and attention to detail provide the room with a distinct corporate ambience. Critically acclaimed and numerous accolades identify the "haute cuisine" prepared by second year Culinary Arts diploma students as "outstanding". OpenTable diners voted Ernest's top 100 in Canada for two consecutive years. Seasoned chef instructors emphasize the importance of using high quality local regional products. Mastery of traditional cookery combined with contemporary artistry has resulted in a truly electric cuisine. Elegant service is provided by eager Culinary and Hospitality students. An emphasis on etiquette and authenticity is encouraged through the guidance of professional mentors.

We visited Ernest's for dinner after many months. The restaurant wasn't full, but the dining room had the same simple, but inviting vibe. Our server was friendly and professional in explaining the dinner and drink options. The mocktail and the old fashioned tasted the way they should, and our appetizers (salmon tartare and smashed cucumber smeared with skyr and fresh vegetables) delectable. The mains arrived shortly after our palette cleansing sorbetto. We both had the flank steak with steamed broccoli and other veggies, and a peppercorn sauce which was fantastic. We finished our meal with a dark chocolate gateaux that was not too sweet and fresh. All in all another fantastically satisfying meal at Ernest's, a place that we are going to miss when we leave Edmonton next month.

A fun restaurant!! We enjoyed the snacks and shared plates for a birthday dinner. The shared family style plating worked well for our group. Our server was personable, knowledgeable, and was focused on making our evening special. We enjoyed all the dishes and all walked away with new favourites.
