    The reservations agent was very accommodating in updating our reservation the night before as our number increased by one. The staff was welcoming and I appreciated the special birthday gift. Food was excellent including the salads and appetizers. We look forward to returning again next year.

    Chad and team did a fabulous job as always! Carl (our server for dinner) and Cassidy (our server for breakfast) were outstanding. Kudos to the kitchen team for being flexible and creative to accommodate our allergies. We had the Cote de Boeuf for dinner. Tender, melt in your mouth meal.

    The view from the dining room is beautiful and the waiters were attentive. The food was delicious and the wait staff kept everything replenished so there was always fresh food. I have never seen so many fantastic and delicious desserts. This is definitely the best value and by far the best food that I have ever had in Banff. I would 100 % recommend this to anyone going to Banff.

    Fantastic option for celebrating a special occasion. Great food (we ordered the Rib eye experience for two to share amongst 3 and it was an even bigger portion than we had expected- it could have fed 4 instead of 2 people!!!), great service and ambiance! Would totally recommend it.

    The service was excellent, from the complimentary valet to the hostess to our server. I had the seafood bisque, and while it had good flavour it was overly salty. The bread that came with the soup was very good. My spouse had the appetizer salad with berries, fruit, nuts and corn and he enjoyed it. We both ordered the braised bison short rib for our main. The meat was quite thick and tough and didn’t pull apart easily which made it difficult to eat. It could have been cooked slower & longer so it was more tender, and It was also overly salty. The potato and greens were good as were the carrots. I give it a 3 star for a good but mid-level meal, and didn’t feel it earned the $200 price tag , especially since we didn’t have any alcohol or dessert. I prefer the braised short rib at Starbelly in Calgary (Seton) .

    The service and food are what you would expect from a 5 star resort restaurant. Our server, Steve, was a fantastic professional. Very knowledgeable and attentive at the right times. The food was served to perfection. We both had the halibut and it was cooked to perfection. A must if you are looking for a great meal with impeccable service in Banff.

    The food was outstanding but the service was lacking. We had the very first sitting at 6 pm. Our order was taken at 6:15. We were finally served our meal at 7:45. When we received our check, it took our waiter 3 times to get is correct. We finally left the restaurant at 8:15. Inspite of the service issues, the food and drinks were outstanding!

    Amazing experience but fell a bit short as our server seemed too busy and we were waiting for quite a while without being checked on. It was my husbands 30th birthday and he went his whole meal waiting for a beer so he was quite disappointed. The food was amazing, though.

    When the food arrived at the table it was cold. The food took a while to arrive. It would nice if bread was served while we were waiting for the food. The waiters were friendly. But the portion sizes and overall impression of the restaurant was not worth the price.

    The prawn appetizer was great, the mozzarella app was quite bland. The short rib main was delicious. The papardelle was very lackluster. The bacon was burned and left an acrid taste. The brown sauce lacked any real flavour. The entire dish lacked seasoning. The lemon tart was fabulous. We had two issues with our drink orders, the wrong bottle of wine was brought out and opened, we felt bad and simply said we'd drink it and not to worry. And then at dessert, ordered a 30 year port, had the server repeat the order, and we were still brought the 10 year. We told them and the correct one was delivered to the table. But a fair number of misses.

    Lovely food, served in a beautiful room with a beautiful view of mountains. Our server, Prabhash, was excellent, able to explain the nuances of the dishes and to give a personal recommendation (which was outstanding , by the way). Roasted asparagus with truffle butter and prawns with chorizo were out starters - a delicious way to begin. The Halibut with smoked parsnip purée and a lobster bisque, and the Bison short rib were also delicious, as was the mascarpone and roasted strawberry cheesecake. The wine menu was perfectly satisfactory, and provided good choices to accompany the food. This is a good restaurant serving really good food. A great place to have a final dinner before returning to the UK.

    We were very much looking forward to eating here based on reviews but we were extremely disappointed. Our server was rude and not attentive at all. The halibut dish was good although the soup was lukewarm. Never asked if we would care for another drink. Very disappointed
