Nice little restaurant with skate/snowboarder decor. Seating is on high stools, which is not so comfortable for short folks. Elk steak was perfect and bison short ribs were very tender but a bit acid for my tastes. Seasonal side dishes were wonderful. Service was very friendly and attentive.

We ordered burgers, mine was fine and my wife's burger was burnt. She told the server and he said sorry, will do another. Then returned and told us the burger was fine, it was normal charring. It clearly was not. Had they not said this we could have overlooked that the burger was burnt but was being replaced. They should... More

This was our second attempt to eat at Downstream, but we were foiled at the 1st attempt due to a large group booking. We returned tonight and so pleased that we did. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive. A couple of Honey ales, washed down a very tasty and tender Elk sirloin. My wife had the wild salmon, which... More

Took the recommendation from the front desk staff at our hotel after we found out the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. Glad we took it. Server was as quick...as he could be, it was packed when we got... More

This has been my favorite restaurant for some time. They have a small menu however everything on it is excellent. I've not tasted anything I haven't like. Food standouts are the sweet potato lasagna and the Muscovy duck breast. They also have a HUGE drink menu. The bartenders make a killer martini (the classic kind) and they have 7 different... More

We had a really good dinner consisting of goat cheese croquettes, bison short ribs, smoked duck breast, and the warm brownie with ice cream. Service was good. There was a pool table. It had cool restaurant in a college town type vibe.

We ate supper here on a Saturday night. This is a basement restaurant, so don't come here for the view (although there were several TVs, so there's no shortage of entertainment). The food was somewhat upscale and very good. The server was appropriately attentive (showed up now and then to ensure everything was fine, but otherwise left us alone to... More

Decided to give this place a try after reading the tripadvisor reviews. I am so glad we did the food was excellent. I had the salmon and my husband the steak and both meals were amazing. It was very busy and had to wait at the bar for a couple of minutes but that was fine as we hadn't booked.... More

The Downstream was recreated in 2008 by local owner Sotirios Korogonas as a concept for a modern restaurant & lounge that retains Jasper's mountain town spirit and casual feel. Chef David Gomez masterfully delivers Jasper's best homemade meals using only the freshest ingredients. His attention to detail and passion for excellence is defined by the superior reputation his menu and our staff have earned amongst our loyal customers. Shawn Routledge and our service team ARE dedicated to ensuring a superior experience by providing our customers with a truly comfortable atmosphere in the most personal public room in Jasper. Together we have created a menu that is the best dollar for dollar value in the park.
