This charming shop is a combination cafeteria and gourmet foods shop. The menu includes a variety of creative soups, salads and sandwiches such as Salmon Quesadilla and the Vegetarian Cubano. Their pizzas are truly special and offer tasty and unique toppings such as buffalo mozzarella, sage pesto, parma ham, delicata squash and roasted pear. One wall has shelves filled with gourmet sauces, condiments and spices, and cheeses are available for purchase from a tiny cooler. There is little seating inside, but the patio is a fine place for an al fresco lunch.
Having only eaten at Crazy weed before for lunch, I somehow expected their dinner menu to be as varied as lunch. However,we found the menu to be somewhat limited in comparison.
The food was good but not great as I remember it from a couple of yrs ago at their old location.
Service was also not that great,our server was charming but run off her feet,we were left with dirty appetizer plates for at least 15minutes,,she also forgot our wine.
Despite this , we will return and try them again,there's something about Crazy weed that draws you in.
As noted by the titled, I loved the Friday Night special Chicken Mole - the mole sauce has so many different flavors that combined to create an overall dining sensation. This main entree came with a large bowl of rice, beans and tortilla strips so even the hungriest skier would be satisfied! The only minor setback was the wine a Malbec from Argentina had a peculiar taste when first opened and had a large amount of sediment at the bottom of the bottle - not what you would expect in a $60 wine. On the whole, the ambiance, service were good. We spent an evening here and it was a dining experience. I used a good portion of my children's educational fund to dine here but the food was fantastic...
The old Crazyweed location offered great food in a small setting. A little pricey, but very much worth it, and I ate there a lot.
Last year they moved to a new location that is remarkably similar to something you'd find in LA or any other major west-coast city--lots of wood panels, white space, trendy sinks and little rocks. Unfortunately, the owners must have put more thought into the design of the space than their new menu.
The new menu is about twice as expensive as the old menu, but unfortunately the food is not as good. Price is what you pay, value is what you get, Crazyweed is no longer the good value it was. And the portions are micro, not suitable for post-skiing or anytime you real quantities of food. Maybe things will get better with time, but I'd like to see more emphasis on the food and less on interior design.
We were fortunate enough to eat at the Crazyweed restaurant last week. Even though it was a thursday night, the restaurant was packed. In fact we had to eat out on the patio which although a bit cool, was kept comfortable by patio heaters. For some reason I thought they didn't accept reservations, but that isn't the case. Anyways, about the food. The special of the evening was halibut, which I had. The fish was very moist with a creamy kind of sauce. Very tasty! It was accompanied by small yukon gold potatoes with butter and herbs, as well as chantrell mushrooms and a green salad of curly leafed lettuce. I enjoyed everything. My husband had the beef tenderloin which he said was some of the best meat he's ever tasted. He also had the small potates and roasted beets. The waitress was extremely accomodating, helping us pick out nice wines that suited our meals. The bill with tip came to about 90.00, which considering the good food and service we received, was more than fair.
This Canmore eatery is all about the food. Many of the dishes have a Mediterranean or Thai influence. The sandwiches are welcome break from the regular ham or turkey varieties and feature fresh greens with lemongrass dressing as an accompaniment. Great variety of imported beers and unique wines as well.
The ambience is more cafeteria style and the staff isn�t exactly overly attentive, but the food more than makes up for the service shortcomings.
The lamb sandwich and flatbreads are definitely worth the trip.
There's One Reason to Head to the Rockies: the Crazyweed Kitchen

Flavours, textures, quality, care... Abound.The chef is extraordinarily talented..the wines chosen carefully, you can't go wrong with the menu but the daily specials are a must. Nothing less than 100% pure hard work and committment have made this place what it is. The love and devotion to serving good food and cooking with a plethora of ingredients using different styles and techniques comes through in every morsel. This is simply as good as it gets, grounded and surreal at the same time.
The food here is fabulous - one of the best places I've eaten. The food is creative, fresh, beautifully presented. It's not your run-of-the-mill restaurants. A little on the pricey side, but worth every penny.
