About the restaurant
Aalto’s inspiration runs deep. From Pyramid Lake’s shimmering waters to the sky-scraping peaks that tower above, we’ve translated our neighbouring natural wonders onto our menu. The result is what we call “lake-food” — a homegrown interpretation of seafood that spotlights Jasper’s finest regional flavours.

Stunning views of the lake, framed by majestic mountains in the background. The service was exceptional, and the food was outstanding. They were very accommodating with gluten-free options, which were clearly marked, making it a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Nice dinner with good friends for a shared anniversary. Overall decent dining experience, value for price was average. Baked brie, charcuterie plate, short rib and mussels all good. Kitchen claimed steak had to be refired as it was over so late to the table and it ended up being just average. Choose another option.

We were there to celebrate our son's high school graduation. The manager, Flavius, always takes the time to stop by and say hello. The service and food was great and we had a fantastic time.
