The seafood platter for two
The seafood platter for two was delicious and an excellent value at $60. Stephanie was a pleasant and helpful server and mentioned that the platter is only featured one month a year. If you enjoy lobster, prawns, mussels & calamari, tri it if you see it on the menu.
Only thing to note was noise. The piped-in music was fine but we clearly heard guests over 10 meters away. Among them were a popular HGTV host (as later pointed out by our server) and a singer (we overheard this fact several times during our meal). Perhaps these folks are accustomed to projecting their voices; maybe the acoustics are better suited to a concert hall. While the noise did not spoil our evening, it did make us aware to tone down our private conversation.

I booked a spot at Maple Leaf Grill based on the numerous recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and polite. The food was fabulous. I ordered the bison prime rib, it was melt in your mouth tender, my husband had the apple crusted pork tenderloin, extremely good. For dessert we both had the soufflé which is made when you order it. It come to the table hot, with a scoop of ice cream in a seperate bowl. Amazing! We highly recommend
Maple Leaf and will be going back!!

Good as Always
This is where we had our wedding reception and it's our stop when we are in Banff without our son. One of our favourites is the beef tenderloin and another is the apple crusted pork tenderloin. It's funny, this trip we were with 3 other couples and 2 of the couples were sharing a cab together. When the cabbie heard we would be going to Maple Leaf Grill he said ther ls 2 best dishes were those ones. The wine list is extensive which is good. The food is reasonable for the caliber of restaurant but the alcohol is priced high.

Great Banff Experience!
Great food, great service, great environment! The options on the menu, including the "game pizza" really made me feel like I was in Banff. Highly recommended!

Elegant evening in Banff
Even tho we were late our request for a window table was met. Our service was very warm & professional. The bison tenderloin was excellent w/ great presentation.

Tough choices to make on the menu. They all sound really good.

Best meal in Canadian Rockies
We had a very enjoyable dinner at the Maple Leaf. It was our best meal in the Banff area including dinners at chateau Lake Louise and Banff Springs hotels. We started with a delisious sangria. All of our food was wonderful and service was very good. We especially loved the quinoa salad and the maple salmon. Would definitely recommend and return.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Three visits on an annual basis and three very good meals and service.dont miss out on visit to Banff.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Possibly the best in Banff
We had a great meal here, with a main course of delicious King Crab. This restaurant is at the upper end of the Banff price range but is definitely at the upper end of food quality and service.

Second time back, just as good!
Ever since I went to Maple Leaf Grill nearly a year ago, I meant to bring my teenage kids back for a special eating experience. They were not disappointed with the incredible flavors and beautiful presentation! My son and I had the unique 18 oz Cowboy Steak (served on a block of wood!) and my daughter had the AAA Beef Tenderloin steak. It was all delicious and my kids and I will never forget it!

Had an enjoyable quick dinner. The service staff was obliging and helpful. Food was excellent.

The restaurant does a fantastic job at supporting local farms and the chef pairs the food beautifully with their sides. We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant and their servers. We would recommend this spot to anyone except Veggie heads.

My wife and I had dinner here
My wife and I had dinner here for our first wedding anniversary.
We recommend the elk meatballs, bison prime rib, and beef tenderloin.
Nice place to celebrate a special occasion (good service & nice ambiance).

Good food, great service -but NOiSY
Have dined at Maple Leaf Grill twice before, always in the downstairs section by the wine racks. Enjoyed it thoroughly, which is why we wanted to return. Alas, this time we were seated upatairs, where the noise level is boisterous, to say the least. Unfortunately for us, while the food was very good - bison stroganoff was to die for - and the service was outstanding, the noise spoiled the evening. So,while we have had good experiences here, we have agreed that this was likely our last visit to the MLG. If you don't mind the noise, though, MLG is a really good restaurant.

A fantastic anniversary dinner. Always go here for a special occasion. From someone who is in the food and beverage industry, this was a great experience top to bottom. Attentive service (Thanks Bruce!) and great food. We will definitely go back!

A New Banff Tradition for Us
We enjoyed the quality of the surroundings, the decor, and the traditional woodwork, yet with a surprisingly comfortable, casual approach to the service. It seemed like it would be stuffy and out-dated service, but it was current and a good fit for us. The appetizers were generous, beautifully presented; worthy of a photo. In particular we enjoyed the seared scallops. Both our pork tenderloin and wild salmon were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Lemon tart for dessert was the best ever ... even when compared to recent items from Europe. Never been previously, but will be certain to return.

My boyfriend and I went to the Maple Leaf grill for our anniversary. It was absolutely wonderful. Our reserved table is exactly what I wanted (something a little more private away from the noise), and we were seated quickly. Our waiter was the best! He brought us drinks promptly and told us the specials. We ordered the calamari to start, and it was literally the best calamari I have ever had. One of my favourite things was the time in between the courses, instead of it all being brought out instantly, we had time to sit and enjoy. Our waiter was also really good in the sense that he wasn't checking on us every 10 minutes. He gave us space, but wasn't aloof. There is literally nothing that I can complain about!

Last night in Banff
Meant to be last meal in Canada. Outstanding service. Very good food and enjoyed by whole family. The Elk Temderloin was excellent, as was the 18oz steak and Salmon.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in town for a romantic weekend and this place was reccomended by friends. They weren't wrong the food was good the service was good. We both had a great time. Just careful on the floor and stairs it is very slippery.

Group of Eight
Nice big table for our group of 8. Bison, Elk and steaks are tender, juicy and awesome. We had a great meal. It is a large restaurant where small groups and couples can enjoy a meal, as well as groups without interfering with each other's ambiance.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We normally visit Banff twice a year and always dine at the Mapleleaf. This time, we took four business friends with us. NONE of us were disappointed. Salads were wonderful and all entre selections (fish, meat and vegetarian) were superior. Great setting (we prefer to sit in the bar), great service, Dave the bartender on Monday's is a gem! The price is fair for what you get.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely atmosphere,friendly helpful service and great food. Husband had the bison steak and I had bison strogonof - both superb. Sirbets and icecream alsoi very tasty. Recommended to us by a friend and we will certainly recommend to others.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Check out the chef's specials
I had the smoked bacon-wrapped elk tenderloin and it was Amazing! Once again Open Table pointed me in the right direction. I've been recommending this place to all my friends.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Me and my future wife have eaten here twice before. Both times we have come away thinking that if this is food, what have we been eating our whole lives. The food here is incredible, I highly recommend it.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
A big thank you to the staff for making our night one to remember.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic as Always
We have been here a number of times and have always had a consistently superb meal and exceptional service. I often order the scallops or quinoa salad, but for a change I tried the elk meatballs and they were great as well. The Game Platter (starter) is also a great sharing dish before mains. As for the main, I always order the wild B.C. salmon. The ambience is romantic, warm and cozy, but we've also always felt comfortable bringing our kids here. The wine list is very impressive.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to the Maple Leaf for "Bon Appetit". Food was excellent as always. I highly recommend for lunch or dinner.
Maple Leaf has the best Beef Burger in town
