Our food was bland and certainly not worth the price. My wife couldn’t even eat her spaghetti because it was so unappealing. The server ignored us at best, and was uninterested as it appeared he had other guests with deeper wallets. We reserved a table a few days in advance but were wedged into a cold corner with barely any space to get in and out. Overall this was a complete waste of money and we would never recommend it.

It wasn’t only a main we are surprised at, one of the best meal we have ever had and wine as well. It’s a bit corny but the roast poteto I came with seafood platters was the best in my life.

We made reservations for Valentine’s Day and the place wasn’t too busy. Service was good and pretty fast; the food was excellent. I highly recommend the bison tenderloin if you are having a steak. I would definetly go back.

Aside from having a great meal and our waitress being very nice, way too much else went wrong. To start with, my husband ordered a beer which they ran out of so he ordered a different beer which when he tasted it he could tell it was not what he ordered. Since he's not one to complain, he decided not to say anything until later, and when he did mention it the waitress said, you're right that's the tap next to what you ordered, the bartender must have poured from the wrong one... it was a very distinct taste so that's how he knew it was wrong. Then when it came to ordering dinner they ran out of what my husband ordered. Normally when we go out to dinner, and we go out a lot, the server tells you up front if there is anything that isn't available on the menu. So, strike 2 on things that should never happen. Strike 3 was that it took over an hour to get our meal. When we finally asked, the waitress apologized and said they had a party of 30 that they were getting meals out for. The restaurant obviously knew this in advance and should have planned accordingly by staffing up, or at least the waitress should have warned us of the delay. Lastly, while we were having dinner we got an email stating that our OpenTable reservation had been cancelled. Apparently the folks at a nearby table did not stay for dinner, and Maple Leaf cancelled our booking instead of theirs. When we mentioned the email to them, they promised to reinstate the reservation so we could get OpenTable points and do a review, but they did not. So, we had to contact OpenTable to fix the problem. Bottom line is they could have made this right or at least softened the blow by offering to buy us a drink or dessert, but other than being apologetic there was nothing to compensate for all the mishaps of the evening.

Consistently ecXcellent! We visit Banff twice a year and Maple Leaf is always on the top of our dining list. Ling COD and Alberta fillet were prepared to perfection. French onion soup was a bit unusual - topped with shredded onion rings versus cheese. - it may or may not be to your preference, not so much for us., but not a deal breaker. Excellent wine list and cozy bar. We will be back in the fall.

Great food with a Canadian focus. The duck confit was best ever, with both a leg and thigh, and a boneless breast. Very extensive wine list with many Canadian choices, as well as international alternatives. Friendly staff. Center of Banff downtown. We walked from the BSH, and took a cab back.

Environmental and staff were very good. Food was ok, the issues that we had were gnocchi lacked flavor and was dry. My fish and shrimp dish had only 2 shrimp for $45 you think you would get at least 4 or give prawns. Other issue I had was the charge of $13.50 for a normal Ceasar. Only time I have ever paid that much for one was when it included shrimp, beef jerky, beans and was a double. Just today I got the same Ceasar that they had at Boston Pizza for $7.80. Might give it another try next time I'm in Banff but not really worth spending $150 for my wife and me for the food that we got.

 (Denver)·Dined on January 3, 2018

We ate at the Maple Leaf twice while in Banff. I would have given it five stars across the board, based on our dinner there. The bison tenderloin was the best meal I’ve had in a long time. My wife also enjoyed the West Coast Salmon. The ambience is modern, upscale and very Canadian. The service was wonderful — quick and attentive. We returned two days later for brunch. I was greatly anticipating the Eggs Benedict, based on the quality of the food at our dinner and pictures I had seen on Yelp. However, the Eggs Benedict was a complete letdown. The eggs were solid and cold. The muffin was hard and the potatoes were so salty as to be nearly inedible. I have to assume this was an off morning for the kitchen or perhaps it was due to the fact that we came in at the end of brunch time. Needless to say, if we had gone for brunch first, we would not have gone back. However, based on the wonderful dinner experience on our first visit, we will likely give the Maple Leaf another try on a future trip to Banff.

We went to Maple leaf for drinks to see what it looked like. Had a great time at the bar and bar tender was very nice. Came back a few days later for dinner. Was seated in the little dining room off the bar with the fireplace which was great since during our visit it was very cold, minus zero everyday. The service was good and the food was very good. We will be back.

We were disappointed when we arrived approximately 30 minutes ahead of the reservation time thinking we could have a drink before dinner and found the doors to be locked (on a very cold day besides!!). I am thinking it would have been nice to have the fact that this would occur HIGHLIGHTED when one books a reservation at 5:00pm. We had to go elsewhere for 30 minutes in freezing cold temps and once we did get back to the restaurant there was a bit of a rush for seating. The restaurant was quite cold as well - kept our coats on for quite a while. The service moving forward was friendly but not super efficient and we found the prices to be quite high. The food itself was quite good ... will likely NOT return
