While the control of doneness of steak is proper, the meat flavour is insufficient (the one I took was the Alberta Wagyu ) and overshadowed by too much salt. The plating is too simple and does not create an appetite effect.

Ambience was very intimate and comfortable. It's a smaller restaurant, which was really nice. 5 star experience!!

We could hardly decide on choices. Starting with a Champagne carte is always fun! As to the food, I even considered just ordering starters to have more tastes! The Arancini amuse buche with pea purée made my mouth smile! I ended up with the Alberta petit filet and my husband the Icelandic Cod. Both preparation were just what we each were looking for. The Icelandic Cod had delicious accompaniment. And, “enhance my filet with Fois Gras. Both dinners were so very satisfying. We even ordered dessert to share since our expectations were so raised. The cheesecake did not disappoint. Yummy!

My venison loin was cooked precisely to medium rare and was exceptional. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, the gentleman who served us made us feel welcome and valued. Comfortable environment in general while it’s a bit noisy in the main dining area. A little bit pricey but I think it’s reasonable for the food and service provided at a prestigious hotel. My friends and I were satisfied with the experience and we had already recommended to our relatives and friends who plan to visit Banff later this year.

We eloped, so it was just the two of us, and we were staying at the hotel (Fairmont Banff Springs). The front-of-house treated us to a private dining room, for our special occasion. We were looked after superbly throughout the whole evening by head waiter Nicholas (he truly is a master of his trade). The service and ambiance were just brilliant. The food was fantastic, and I simply could not fault it. I went for the Japanese Wagyu and it was without doubt the best steak I have ever had in my life. N.B. I live in Japan for 18 months, and sample some of their finest cuts during this time, but the Chop House rates as my No.1 pick. It was a such a memorable night, that both of us will never forget. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Banff.

The food - 10/10 divine. We started with a sample, compliments of the chef. I can’t remember what it was but it as delicious and a pleasant surprise. Then we ordered appetizers- fresh homemade bread with just enough crunch on the outside and light and sweet and perfect on the inside. The house-made butter choices were a beautiful & delicious compliment. The 1888 salad had the most perfect buttery leaves with no bitterness, dressed to perfection . The main courses - Wagyu tenderloin - oh my God is all I can say. Worth every penny . Gingered carrots wirh house made ricotta , confit baby potatoes - every morsel absolutely delectable. My husband had the bison tenderloin. I enjoyed a taste and it was the most amazing combination of flavours. For dessert we had the strawberry choux with specialty coffee. A perfect finish. Our server was everything you’d want a server to be: professional, attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and well -mannered, with the perfect balance of interaction vs. privacy . 10/10. The atmosphere was beautiful. Not too loud, perfect temperature and lighting. This is the dining experience I am looking for when I choose to go out. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary dinner experience that we will always remember!

It was so good you wanted to forget the Peppercorn Sauce. Only unusual part was they do not serve French Fries/Chips/Triple Cooked Chips - only Purple Potatoes But still a great meal.

I would not recommend if you have a decent steakhouse in your area/town.

Food was very good and the restaurant provides ample room for a quaint and intimate dining experience. Alberta beef didn’t disappoint - absolutely order the blue cheese “enchantment” with the steak. Only disappointment was $36 a carafe of flat and sparkling water. Egregious and not necessary. Remainder of pricing was acceptable.
