Diner Reviews
  • "Don't miss the incredible juicy wild game burger! The decor is warm and inviting."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Excellent game platter! The atmosphere was comfortable. Will definitely visit again."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal…fresh grilled mountain trout and roasted duck both with mushroom risotto. Delicious. My only criticism would be that they remove the venetian blinds and clean the windows! With such a beautiful mountain view it's a shame you have to peak through the dusty blinds to glimpse the views! Otherwise, we would highly recommend dining at this establishment."

  • "The Hallibut and Quinoa appetizer were excellent....Leo (our waiter) was charming and very helpful!"

  • "My wife and I ate here for our anniversary. The food is incredible and highlights some the best of Canadian cuisine."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend after only perusing the menu online. We each had salads to start (iceberg and caesar) and followed with the beef tenderloin for me and the duck for my husband. Everything was very tasty. With such generous portion sizes, neither of us had room for dessert."

  • "Charming restaurant with great food and nice service. I truly recommend this place. It was a pleasure to have dinner there after a special day in this beautiful city"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "This was my 2nd time at the Maple Leaf, and they didn't disappoint. Food was outstanding and prepared to perfection. Wait staff was attentive and engaging. We ate in the bar area, but this did not detract from the experience. Will definitely return when in Banff again."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Starting the meal with oysters and salad - both fresh and well presented. The entrees were fantastic - the halibut was cooked properly and the vegetable accompaniment was delicious - broccolini and asparagus along with risotto - a terrific size portion of fish and vegetable! Likewise the wild salmon with yukon gold mashed and an array of green vegetables, perfectly cooked, made for a very fine meal. Only the lemon tart for desert was disappointing. Probably should have opted for the fruit crumble given the keen respect shown fresh vegetables by the chef."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "My husband and I had a babysitter come to the hotel so we could enjoy a much needed date night. The server was outstanding, never let or drinks get low and ver friendly. My husband enjoyed the king crab legs. I had the salmon with Asian noodle slaw. I was ver disappointed in it. And wished I would have had steak or signature salmon dish, as it seemed very tasteless for the price. The baileys new your cheesecake made up for it at the end. It didn't ruin my experience I would gladly go back and try something different."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "This was our third visit to the Maple Leaf Grill. Our first was our wedding dinner 12 years ago. We've been back twice for anniversary dinners. This time, we also celebrated a friend's 40th birthday. The food is AMAZING! Drinks were delicious. Service is really good. We were a little disappointed that there was no special effort made between our anniversary and our friend's 40th birthday (which we made known), but it's not a deal-breaker. We will definitely be back again and again!"

  • "We went with a group of people. The food was pretty good and our waitress was fantastic! "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Having previously eaten at the partner restaurant, Bison, we were expecting similar if not better standards at the Maple Leaf. Suprisingly that was not to be and the food was nowhere near as good. The waiter was fine but the food and ambience left something to be desired. We would not go back."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I was expecting more of this place. The food is average, nothing out of the ordinary. The coffee was terrible! they bring it in clear glasses and judging by the colour it looked really weak; it tasted even worse. The server was not friendly at all, the place was half-empty and she seemed to be in such a hurry we felt we were rushed since the moment we got there. Won't go back, can't recommend it either. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We had a wonderful experience. The food was amazing, everything that was recommended was fantastic. We had a great time with some delicious food. "

  • "I booked a dinner for two for my husbands 50th birthday when we were on holiday in Banff May 2014. I had booked in advance and the staff were very accommodating and gave us champagne on arrival and a good table. The food was delicious and presented very well the waiting staff were so helpful and polite, I would definitely return and recommend."

  • "We really enjoyed our relaxed evening out with a nice bottle of wine, great food, good service."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "When in Banff and seeking the best of the best do not miss out on the incredible selection and preparation of wild game, and seafood. Extensive international wine list. Pull out all the stops and your bill should land in the $250-300 range for two. More than worth the expenditure for an experience not soon forgot. "
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "This was my third trip to the Maple Leaf and yet again it was a home run all the way around! Nothing was average or mediocre it was amazing from the appetizer (game meat platter) to the mains (elk fillet, bison fillet and cowboy stake) and as always the dessert topped off the amazing food and wine! Service was impeccable and staff recommend cocktails and full knowledge of the menu to suggest options and answer any questions. It will absolutely be a place we continue to visit."

  • "Got a reservation here on a recommendation from a friend. Really varied menu, and an excellent wine list. The Lac Brome duck was outstanding, steak was just about perfect. Great find and a nice way to end a pleasant day in Banff. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Very nice wine list covering a number of regions and vintages. The elk tenderloin was excellent."

  • "Went for a girls weekend and had a fantastic stay for dinner. Great wine list and delicious dinner."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The drinks and food could not have been any better. The wait staff were very slow. We stood upstairs for about ten minutes before we were greeted. Once we got to our table we waited about 20 minutes for our server. We ordered drinks that came another 20 minutes after that. Once the drinks arrived we ordered our meal. Our salad's arrived rather fast. We then waited about 20 minutes for our scallop's, they never arrived. Our main course arrived another 20 minutes later. The server apologized many times. Luckily the food stood out over the service."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "My partner and I found the appetizers to be good , but both our fish entres to be very dry and overcooked. We had a cracked water glass, service was too quick/ abrupt and clearing plates when the other people are still eating is poor timing . Overall , we came away hungry ! Would not recommend ."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Enjoyed the food and ambiance. Service was wonderful . I was slightly surprised they didn't take advantage of a birthday - since I mentioned it when booking- in providing a wow moment for their guests. But it was still overall a great evening and if definitely go back, loved the food."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My wife and I had another fantastic dinner here. Every time we visit Banff we dine here. This dinner was as good as all of the others. Our server Jessica was outstanding--excellent knowledge of the entire menu, very efficient, very welcoming. The food was perfectly prepared and was well presented. Being able to enjoy this excellent place time after time is so much fun!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Delicious food, excellent & friendly service, and very accommodating. I will be back!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I've been to the Maple Leaf a few times and it's usually been very good. I took my Mother there for her birthday recently and was disappointed. The service was not attentive. It's best to anticipate your customers needs. Moreover, my steak was med-med well versus medium rare. I did not raise it (that is my mistake) as I did not want my mother and my 4 year old to wait for me to get another steak. Perhaps a refresher with your kitchen staff on rare/med-rare/medium/etc. would help if you've had similar comments from other patrons. Otherwise, perhaps it would just an off-night for that chef. Our server was charming and friendly, don't get me wrong, just not as attentive as I would have expected. She seemed busy/distracted."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Our waitress was awesome, she was very knowledgeable about the menu and how the chef prepared the food. Food was good, not a fan of the calamari, everything else was good!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "As always the food was incredible and the service was outstanding. We try to go every time we are in Banff."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The food portions were generous and the quality of good was top notch. Our server was professional and personable, we would definitely recommend this restaurant to all our friends and family. It's great for all occasions!"

  • "It is the first spot when we come to Banff!!!Our night was perfect ,the food was amazing and we were treated wonderfully!!We will be back:)!!!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The bison burger and fries were amazing and more than enough for one person. My friend had the trout, which tasted great but looked to be about a three oz serving. Very small. We enjoyed the evening the waitstaff was very nice and did a great job."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The food was very good when we went to the Maple Leaf, however, the service was kind of slow. This may have been due to a couple large parties going on in the upstairs area while we were dining in the lounge, but our waitress was nowhere to be found for much of the night and we were there for a long time without getting food. Other than that, I have no complaints. The food was very good all the way around."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I took my mom for dinner for her 60th birthday and we had such a lovely experience. They brought her champagne which was such a nice surprise. Dinner was excellent. Our server recommended the Elk Meatballs for an appetizer, and they were delicious. I have never had elk before and I found it to be tasty, not gamey at all. My mom and I shared the seafood platter for two. It was excellent as well. After all that food there wasn't much room left for dessert. Perhaps next time I go, I will make sure to leave room for dessert."

  • "Our group wanted wild game and this place was recommended by others in our club. Thank you"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Server was very young and inexperienced. Food was mediocre at best. Read about the chef and then told he was gone and it was a new chef. Then update your website! When visiting Banff we wanted a unique and memorable experience. Food and service was better at Earl's. Bison stroganoff was tough and chewy, french onion soup bland. Caesar salad flavourless and veg meal for $26 bucks was a huge disappointment. Never again."

  • "I loved my experience! The food was delicious and the restaurant felt cozy. We will be back for sure! We were only 2 but there were larger groups."
