We had a fantastic meal here. The food tasted great and the service was great. We have never had authentic German food before and it was fantastic.

Food was good, but service was slow, and spoiled the experience. We saw many people stand at the entrance for several minutes before being seated, and it was not busy. We'll try the other two places in Radium next time. Note they don't open for lunch. Dinner only, from 5pm onwards.

Maybe I'm a snob or maybe wasn't a good evening for the chef but all in our party were disappointed in the food. We had the special with breaded salmon, rice, veggies and a dinner salad. The salad was crisp with a beautiful dressing! The broccoli in the entree was crisp and the salmon was a dry, the rice was... More

We chose the Black Forest Steak and Schnitzel Haus as a relaxing après ski while visiting Panorama Mountain Resort near Invermere. We were attracted by the authentic German menu and regional beers and wines. The experience was well worth the drive. Great value and great fare!

We ate here with our family. There is no kids menu. Our kids enjoyed the food but it is not geared towards young children. The food was very good and the atmosphere is unique but very warm and inviting. We enjoyed the schnitzel dishes. The dinner special is a 3 course meal which I really enjoyed. The red velvet cake...

Have enjoyed a number of meals here over the years and it's always terrific. The interior is pretty eclectic but that's part of its charm. The food is top notch.

We have dined at the Black Forest several times in the past few years. As other reviewers have stated, the menu and decor is Bavarian. The theme is carried into the wait staff's uniforms (costumes) which, to me, are over the top corny. The food was quite good, not excellent, but solid. The schnitzel was nicely cooked without being heavy... More

My husband & I and our son & his wife dined here for a birthday supper while we visited the valley during a June vacation. It was pricey but very very good food. The restaurant serves Bavarian food done nicely by a good chef. The selection of beers was also impressive. Interesting and unique decor - we were told much... More
