    This is a glorified hotel lobby restaurant. We were going to try the Prime Rib which was the weekend special, but we’re told after we ordered that they were out and couldn’t fulfill our order. The wine list was lackluster. The waiter came to our table with no greeting and asked if we had decided. Rated the food low because we never tried it since we paid for our drinks and left,

    We were a bit apprehensive at first as it didn’t seem very busy for a Friday but learned quite quickly we were happy we made reservations early My husband ordered the prime rib dinner and said that it was quite possibly the best he has ever had !! The Yorkshire pudding was amazing and the portions were generous Would definitely recommend this place

    We celebrated Fathers Day at Crave Mountain Grill. It exceeded all expectations! There was an incredible variety of stations with everything imaginable. There were salads, breakfast foods, cheese and charcuterie, barbecue, prime rib, garlic prawns to name a few. There was also a nacho bar. The dessert options were tantalizing. A chocolate fountain with fruits and other items , an ice cream sundae bar, and a huge selection of items such as tiramisu, macarons, cheesecake, chocolate mousse, petit fours and many others. Everything was fresh and delicious. They had homemade sauces and dressings. We were so happy with every. The service was excellent. They also had live music by an excellent guitarist.

    This is a beautiful restaurant and the food was very good. Service was good as well and food was quickly brought to our table soon after we ordered. We had the Prime Rib dinner. Prime Rib was cooked as per requested, one medium and the other medium rare, both with excellent flavor. Mashed potatoes were also very well done and again tasted excellent. Yorkshire pudding was some of the best that I have had. Deserts were also very good. Only issues that I had follow. Would have been nice to of had some good appetizers and We ordered a garden salad and requested Thousand Island dressing which they didn't have.

    They forgot our sons meal but never acknowledged it - just said it'd be out soon. Our food was cold by the time his made the table. The potatoes were bland and the prime rib was overcooked. The fish and chips were so greasy they were inedible. They never came to check on our table and the blinds were left open for over half the meal which made the table hot, and hard for the two of us in the sun to see.

    Food was excellent. Steak sandwich, prime rib, ragu, then brownie and banana split for dessert. Victoria was a great server, very helpful and friendly, even if I couldn’t negotiate for a Yorkshire pudding ;-) We’ll be back. P.S. the old fashioned was tasty too.

    The buffet was alright but was very expensive for what was actually at the buffet. I could have easily had a better meal for half the price at an expensive steakhouse. I also didn't like the fact that gratuity was automatically added for a buffet - all the servers do is ask you what you would like to drink and then take your plates away.... Seriously... They could have at least talked up the buffet, or informed us that the non-alcoholic beverages are included in the price and asked us if we would have liked refills...

    Our family spent Christmas Day in Canmore and Banff and decided to try the buffet at Crave for our Christmas dinner. We all enjoyed our meals and were very satisfied with the selection of traditional Christmas dinner items as well as some tasty specialty selections. The restaurant was fairly quiet and was not crowded so that was a plus for us. The service was very good and our server was friendly and attentive.

    We had a great meal! Food came out quick and it was a great amount of food for the price! The only thing is that we didn’t realize that it would be in an open part of the hotel, so the ambiance wasn’t as nice for date night but overall we had a wonderful experience!

    Delicious food, beautiful presentation. Lovely views. House burger was outstanding, prime rib was very good. A bit noisy from other diners, and service was somewhat slow. Overall, I’m surprised this place isn’t busier. The price was fair for Banff and for how good the food is!

    Quiet place for breakfast. We had the Omelet and Belgian waffles which were both very good and well within reason of Banff pricing. we were staying in the Banff Park Lodge so we only had a few hundred feet to walk which was part of the decision to eat there. We were pleasantly surprised by all aspects of Crave for breakfast.
