Diner Reviews
  • "A glorious place to just sit, relax and feel truly pampered. The food was exceptional, and the opportunity to look out over Tunnel Mountain while enjoying great wine is second to none."

  • "We have been staying a block away from the Sleeping Buffalo for years, but this was the first time we tried it. It was amazing. Everything from the lamb to the bison was outstanding. The service was very good, as well."

  • "Everything was excellent, had the caribou and bison duo for mains, the only disappointment is that we were looking forward to have the elk tenderloin carpaccio which is advertised online on the menu as a starter, and on review sites including OT but, it was NOT on the menu"

  • "We took my sister to Buffalo Mountain Lodge for her 40th birthday and dined at the Sleeping Buffalo. BML has been a favourite spot of ours for many years and it did not disappoint. We started with cocktails in front of the roaring fire in the bar and then moved to the restaurant. My mother had the spinach and arugula salad, and my sister had the gem salad to start; I had the crab cakes. Everything was tasty and well-presented. For our main course, we all had the caribou medallions with potatoes, shallots and berry gastrique. It was cooked perfectly and the portions were just right. For dessert we shared a trio of creme brûlées and the staff wrote "Happy Birthday" on the plate to surprise my sister, which was a lovely gesture."

  • "Great Ambience, excellent food and excellent service. A tad on the pricey side but I would go back again for a special occasion."

  • "It was very obvious that great care was taken in the preparation of our food. Our main dishes were perfectly cooked, as were the well thought out and balanced accompaniments. Dessert was maybe even more impressive in terms of flavours and balance. We had the Alberta Beef Rib Eye and and the Caribou Medallions; the Beignets and the Mille-feuille. Service was efficient. We also ate there for lunch the next day which was equally good food. The game burger was not gamey, cooked to order - juicy and delicious. The steak was average but its accompanying truffle fries were great."

  • "We were in Banff on a vacation and booked the Sleeping Buffalo for dinner on New Year's Eve. It was a fun evening. They had a DJ playing great tunes and had gone all out in festive, yet tasteful New Year's Eve decorations...including tiaras for the women and fedoras for the men! The food was good, but nothing remarkable and the menu was limited due to the day. The service was fine, we had a late reservation and never felt rushed. It was a bit expensive for the menu that was offered."

  • "Excellent and romantic evening. Our server Chris was attentive and knowledgeable. A beautiful setting and an enjoyable evening. Menu features regional dishes and wine menu is also diverse and well rounded. One small concern, some families brought their children and allowed them run around and play. We love children but could have done without the screeching and crying. Not the restaurants fault, but it may be an idea to decide if Sleeping Buffalo is a romantic getaway or a family restaurant."

  • "We had our anniversary dinner here, the restaurant was about hald full with one large group, that our waitress was taking care of. We were her other table, the forgotten ones. Bought a very nice bottle of wine ordered appies and drinks, dinner, she brought the drinks and we didn't she her again until our meal was over. Rhe other waiter was nice enough to pour one glass of wine for us . If we return here we will ask not to be seated in Jennifers section."
