We were very disappointed in the PEI Mussels. They were grossly over cooked, so much so that they stuck to the shells and you could couldn’t get them out without breaking open the shells with your fingers. And when they broke open you were splattered with the sauce, which was so spicy it burned your mouth and tongue.

Went for Easter brunch. Food was delicious and variety was amazing. It's quite pricey at $45 per person, but is our family's Easter tradition, so we're willing to pay it. I gave the service 4 stars cause we had to ask for a refill on coffee, but overall service was very good too.

Delicious brunch spread. So many unique and full flavoured selections as well as brunch staples. View from booths is quite nice. Price very reasonable considering the food and location. Service attentive. Chef team obviously knows what they are doing and cares about taste- each bite well worth it!

The service was probably better than ever. The food selection, however, seemed significantly reduced from prior visits. Possibly we arrived in a slow period and the selection was reduced to likewise reduce waste triggered by lower participation. Deserts were still awesome and I think the new chocolate fountain is better -- fewer fingers accidentally getting covered in chocolate that then goes back into the mix...

Good menu options, pleasant if somewhat corporate/hotel dining room ambience.

Service slow and inattentive in spite of a low volume of diners (e.g. didn’t refill water glasses until after a reminder in spite of asking; under filled a wine glass (short of fill line for a 5oz glass).

Food quality good although the elk burgers were hard as hockey pucks.

Our meal was by far the worst dining experience I have had in Banff in the 30+ years I have been visiting the town. To make matters worse, it was our only engagement for New Years. I will never go to Crave again and I will let everyone I know to avoid it at all costs. I felt as though we were put in an abandon conference room to dine while forced to extract food from a buffet that would make McDonald's look like a gourmet establishment.

Our family celebrated New Year's Eve dinner buffet 2018 and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the crab claws, and the Prime Rib roast, but everything was great, the grilled vegetables and the beef with the
arugula was yummy. We are not a desert family but lots of different types of deserts.

My boyfriend and I went here for New Year’s Eve dinner after cancelling our reservation at the Keg for being too early.

Unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment. I can’t believe we paid almost $200 for two people. The buffet food was mostly cold (meat sitting under a heat lamp but still frozen), some burnt items, and very little variety...

I was honestly really dissatisfied and disappointed that our nice new years dinner wasn’t very appetizing and that it costed so much.

Ambience was odd as well, very quiet, no music playing... just a strange environment really.

I would not recommend this place to anyone, there are far better choices in Banff.

Delicious and varied choices for brunch. They have updated their selection and have included a number of interesting and tasty new dishes. Service was excellent as always; we witnessed a staff member wipe a child's juice spill not once, not twice, but three times (and I think the third time, it might not have been juice under his seat...), with a smile.
View from the booths is very nice.

We had a change in travel and decided to ditch our more expensive dinner plans for a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. This is a resort/hotel restaurant but we found the food to be well priced and tasty, along with good service. Not a "foodie" spot but good local offerings.

Traveling through Banff and looking for a nice, quiet, not too expensive meal. I was super impressed with their knowledge of gluten-free options and what might have cross-contamination. For someone with an allergy, this was really helpful and I felt confident in ordering my chosen entree- the Elk Burger. Everything about the meal was incredible! The flavors were great together and I ate every last bite of it. My friend had the ribs and really enjoyed them as well! We happened to be in at opening and had the entire place to ourselves. It was quiet and relaxing! If I ever get back to Banff, I would definitely come back to Crave Mountain Grill!
