Diner Reviews
  • "I went there with my boyfriend in march. We both had the menu with wine paring. Nice selection of wine. Worth the price, especially for Banff. We will probably go back there next year if we go back to banff."

  • "I was expecting a very nice meal at Terrace and was very disappointed. I had the lamb which was dry and tasteless. The potatoes were very much underdone (inedible) although the root veggies were nice. My husband had the salmon and enjoyed his meal. It is impossible to create a nice dining ambience due to the close proximity of the sports bar. If there is a game on TV and enthusiastic watchers, it creates inevitable noise. Fortunately the night we dined it was noisy to start but then cleared out."

  • "The menu looked amazing. We arrived at 7:30, half an hour later, our orders were taken. Shortly after, our wine arrived, however bread/appis did not arrive until around 8:30. At this point we were quite hungry. The truffle soup was very good. The escargot were rubbery, however. When our dinner finally came around 9:15 it was disheartening. The maple duck was so soaked in maple sauce that the duck flavor was lost, and the poor bird tasted like a maple smoked deli meat from Safeway. The gnocchi was mushy and flavorless. The sous vide lamb was dry (needed to saw at it with the knife) and was so overpowered by the mustard rub that I could not eat it. The vegetables were good though. To be fair, maybe it was a bad night for them?"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner on a very quiet Sunday night. Our meals were very delicious and were obviously made with a lot of care and attention to appearance. Our server was mostly attentive, though I think she got lost or sidetracked when we were done with our meal, as our empty plates sat in front of us for longer than I would have expected. *Here's a TIP* - ask for a table far away from the lounge as it can be noisy otherwise!"

  • "We knew we were in for a real treat when they served the complimentary bread with balsamic lemon butter along with Pinot noir sea salts. The flavors just burst in our mouths. I must say the rest of the meal did not disappoint either. I loved the ambience of the restaurant and the service was bang on if you take out the large business group that had congregated in the lounge beside the restaurant. They were loud and rowdy. In hind sight, they should have seated us further around the corner away from the lounge but I don't remember if the empty tables were cleared off when we arrived. Other than that, it was a wonderful evening. We are regular foodies and seldom give out 5 stars. This restaurant will definitely be added to our Banff favorite!"

  • "Food can out quick and tasted great. Service was really slow to get drinks. That might be because it was Valentines Day and there were some large groups. However, the server was very nice but not as personal. That's my own preference, I like to joke around with the servers."

  • "Chose this restaurant in the Banff Park Lodge based on other reviews. Very quiet on a Tuesday evening. We selected the 5 course meal offered with the wine pairings. Each course of the meal was delicious with fresh and varied offerings. The vegetables were cooked to perfection with full flavors. The protein variety of arctic char, quail and lamb duo were also well prepared. The dessert trio was amazing - the sorbet being my favorite with fresh fruit flavor. Next time we would choose the 5 course meal again but would choose our own wine rather then the pairing. Discovered a great new Okanagan wine in See Ya Later Pinot 3."

  • "First went to Terrace Restaurant during the Big Taste event several years ago and my wife and I have been hooked. We make a point to visit this place at least once every few months as we pass through Banff. The restaurant has a fairly standard fare for Canada, with solid Chicken, Beef, Seafood and Vegetarian choices but their menu is somewhat limited. That said, the dishes they offer are all delicious and very well represented. My wife and I have had all of the main entrees and none have disappointed. What we most enjoy about this spot though is that this restaurant understands ambiance. Quiet background music, not overcrowded, and attentive but un-pressured serviced make for a wonderful, reliable night out."

  • "We booked for the bon appetite special dinner. We were very pleasantly surprised, we didn't even know there was a restaurant in the lodge but it was terrific. There was hardly any other people there (Tuesday evening). The service was excellent as was the food. We will definitely be back."

  • "Food was pretty good, ambiance was good too! The service (especially the host) was top notch - he was very attentive and acknowledged the special request we had for a nice, and more quiet, table."

  • "Quite uneven meal, lamb and elk osso bucco were tasty, vegetables were cold, risotto was uncooked, Polenta was watery, salmon chowder was very tasty, dessert mediocre. Staff trying hard but inexperienced. Not living up to high reviews or prices"

  • "We celebrated our 6th Anniversary on Saturday night. Was surprised that the restaurant was hidden or tucked past the bar/pub of hotel. Bar was fairly quiet except of a couple of rowdy boys coming in and out of pool, outside for a smoke and the bar for a drink. They made a couple rounds while we were there. Whatever. Service was good. Only two wait staff for a busy restaurant at around 7:30-8(was full). I tried the Bon appetite menu that they were featuring. LOVED the salad w candied nits and beet chips!!! My main was delish as well, polenta and bison(I think...maybe elk). Dessert, I cose the vanilla trio. Brûlée was perfect and the beignet was decent and the panna cotta had too much gelatin and not quit enough vanilla flavor(vanilla beans)."

  • "Appetizers were phenomenal, highly recommend the scallops, and the soup/salad. Main courses were not as good as we hoped."

  • "My husband and I went to the Terrace as it was part of our Travelzoo deal. We knew before that it was pricey ($35-40 an entree) so we decided to go for drinks and dessert. I had a glass of wine and my husband had a Banff coffee, both of which were fairly good. We ordered the cheese board as well and were thoroughly disappointed. It did not come with fresh bread as stated on the menu. There were 4 different types of cheese on the board (two small pieces of each), along with a few strawberries, some candied nuts, and tiny apple slices. We only liked 1 of the cheeses and the apples tasted like onion. We also ordered the caramel cheesecake which was good. Overall, we will not go back because of the poor quality compared to the price."

  • "Chef's menu is not real extensive; but, choices are uniquely different, and very creative. Presentation very artistic; but, do not detract from the great taste experience. Service is pleasantly attentive. Elk medallions were a first experience, and excellent. Escargot ravioli another positive. Room is essentially an atrium, with an uninspiring view during daylight. Make your reservations after dark. During our dinner there were two large groups of business men dining. Very loud. Fortunately, they finished early; and quiet, romantic ambience prevailed."
