Silvertip Resort, 2000 Silvertip Trail
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

This upscale Canmore steakhouse at Silvertip Resort serves 100% Canada Prime beef, this country’s highest grade. All steaks are prepared with housemade seasonings and finished under a 1,500°F infrared flame boiler that seals in flavour and juices. Other menu items (including fresh seafood) satisfy a variety of tastes.

Atmosphere & Accolades

Rustica was voted Best Steak in Alberta 2015 by Open Table, and Best Steak in the Bow Valley by Rocky Mountain Outlook newspaper readers. This restaurant has a Top 10 Alberta Steakhouse rating by TripAdvisor and has won consecutive Wine Spectator awards since 2009. Its rustic, elegant atmosphere is enhanced by Douglas fir timber ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling rundlestone fireplace, leather chairs with high backs and formal table settings. Patrons are treated to stunning golf course and Mount Lady Macdonald views, as well as frequent wildlife sightings through immense windows and from the serene cobblestone patio. The private room that seats up to 12 is perfect for family and small group events.
