“Still Terrible”

Do not waste the or money here, goto the Jasper Park Lodge if you can. CAVELLS is much better and the service and food is well worth the money. Just the walk around the lake after is worth all the money you would spend on dinner

“Yikes”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Nothing positive to say about this experience. Bartender gets the drinks wrong, waiter was snooty, poor selection of wines by the glass, drink menu not user friendly, no attention to detail E.g cutlery on floor under table, table not cleaned or set properly, and all soap dispensers in the washroom were empty. Menu not friendly for allergies and food quality was poor. Prices are high. Service was impersonal. We recommend all the staff visit the Fiddle River restaurant to see how it's done!

“Fantastic Food, View & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Whenever my husband and I go to Jasper we save our special occasion night for Villa Caruso. This is a wonderful restaurant with truly amazing service. The chef is a genius and creates spectacular dishes that are meant to be savored and lingered over. Do not go if you are in a hurry and have small children with you. KFC is just a stones throw away.

“Fantastic views but children clearly not welcome”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

I visited with my family (wife and three young children) and were seated promptly, although obviously away from the few other diners in the restaurant. I asked if we could move to a different table with a much better view of the mountains and my request was met with obvious displeasure. The waiter (presumed to be the owner) agreed to move us but then mentioned how they usually don't like to seat families with young children too close to the (more important) diners. He then even had the cheek to ask us to keep them quiet. Since we were in a rush and our actual waiter was a very pleasant gentleman we elected to stay (against our better judgment). The food we had was reasonable although heinously over-priced and the menu out dated.
In short we loved the location, were entirely indifferent about the food and found the guy that seated us to be rude, snooty and totally unwelcoming.
I should just add that we entertained our own children, who are well used to eating out, and they barely made a peep the whole time we were there. If the owner had been there when we left I'd have made my feelings clear at the time.

“Me and the Boys love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

A couple of us go to Jasper at least once a year, and this place is one of our points of interest. Great staff, great view, liquor prices are great especially for a tourist town, and the food is awesome. We have had some great times here.
