One of the best meals we’ve had while in Banff. We were very impressed by the presentation and we were blown away by the taste of the food.

Our waitress made a big difference, Jamie. She got us a table outside in a perfect evening. She was great and the food was better then the reviews. We go back if we were here longer

We arrived to a fairly empty restaurant indicating that we had a dinner reservation. The attendant abruptly asked "At this restaurant?". The reservation was found and we were seated. Drink that should have been served in a short glass was in a water glass loaded with ice and soda water. Server knocked glass of water on one person in our party. She apologized, used our napkins to clean up, but never returned with new napkins or water. We left.

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.

We went for New Year’s Eve supper. It was a buffet with no menu options. The buffet food was mostly cold for $80 a person. Would not recommend the buffet the food was not that good for that price.

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.

I booked this restaurant for our Christmas dinner. It was extremely expensive and the food was horrible!!!!! The food was cold and dried out. This might be a good place to eat on a non-holiday event but just don’t book it at Christmas!

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.

This was a last minute dinner with my kids, so we weren't looking for anything special. However, this was not good really - the food was average, at best. The ambiance was very dated, and the service was not impressive. Overall, this is not a place we will visit again.

My husband and myself had a wonderful meal and pleasant evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the Beet and Goat Cheese salad...one of the better ones I have had. My husband had the steak and said it was cooked perfect and very tasty. Our server, Phu, was very friendly and efficient. I would definitely go back for another lovely evening.
