La Terraza is our favourite for a special dinner out! Love the brightness, space between tables, quiet atmosphere (which you hardly ever find anywhere now) food is always excellent as are the dinner specials. Staff at the Banff Park Lodge in all the venues are terrific! Yes, have recommended many times and everyone has been extremely pleased with their experiences.

Excellent first experience, waiter was awesome, attentive and informative, good communication. Food was very good, food was well made and flavourful. Drinks were good but a little overpriced. $16 for 9 oz is pricy. All in we enjoyed the atmosphere and meal. I would recommend and return.

I was very excited to try out this restaurant from reading the positive reviews but I was left feeling a little underwhelmed.. I’ll start by saying the staff was absolutely outstanding! They were some of the nicest servers I’ve ever met. They had such warm smiles and were super welcoming and accommodating to everyone’s needs. But on the flip side we didn’t enjoy our food that much. It was very expensive and it had me wishing it tasted better. It was okay but nothing special at all. I wouldn’t go back because of that reason. The value for food isn’t what I expect for such a high price.

We loved La Terrazza! My husband had a unique take on lasagna, & I had Lobster fettuccine that was so good, totally amazing. The restaurant is small, & elegant, with large windows that look out to the beauty of Banff, Canada. Lot's of beautiful plants. The service was great, & food delicious! We'd eat here in a heartbeat if we're ever in Banff again.

Celebrated our 40th anniversary here! Scallop and calamari appetizer were delicious! ScAllops were cooked perfectly and were very flavorful.Calamari were lightly breaded and lightly fried with a delicious pick de Gallo salsa.

For dinner, I had one of the evenings specials, risotto with duck breast.Risotto and the duck breast were both cooked perfectly. The portion was generous and the flavors melded together perfectly!

We shared a Jamaican rum creme brûlée for dessert which was excellent! Had a lovely evening and we’re very pleased with the meal and the service!

In terms of the food, the Caprese salad was wonderful. The fresh bread was delicious but the breadsticks seem to cheapen the experience. The $48 - 10 oz. steak meal was underwhelming in quality and taste. Also, its side pairing for the cost of the entree was very disappointing.
The intimate ambience was marred by the attached lounge playing sports with loud spectators. The layout of the dining room is not well utilized. The space is lacking character, diversity in seating options, richness with the finish selections and artwork, that would ultimately elevate the diner's experience.
Wait staff numbers were limited which provided slower response time to guests. As well as wait staff didn't have any support staff to clean off tables, replenish linens and refill clientele water cups.

What a disaster! I ordered halibut wapped in prosciutto. What I received was dry overbaked halibut engulfed in even more dry prosciutto and smothered in « nona’s » marinara sauce on a bed of pasty polenta. I could not believe the marinara bit! What an awful combination. I reordered the dish (hold the marinara) but version 2 was just as dry! Someone needs to tell the staff that halibut should be moist and flakey. The other 2 dishes we received were overcooked squid ink shrimp pasta and roasted eggplant also smothered in marinara. The only redeeming hint of quality was the service. No complaints here! From the hostess to our 2 waiters the service was impeccable and the ambiance was warm and relaxing. However I’m not sure that this is enough to salvage the experience. Diners beware!!!

Excellent quality food, service, and atmosphere. We were seated quickly and in the back corner with a view. Our waiter, Alexander, was phenomenal- super friendly, checked in with us often, made great recommendations. He even over heard us talking that it was our anniversary and comped our dessert for us! The food was excellent- my husband had the veal and I had linguine vongole. They make their pasta fresh and it was delicious. I would definitely come back here next time I'm in Banff!

Our first time at La Terrazza was a pleasant experience. The food was excellent and the service was great. Our two servers were both very pleasant and friendly. We both had the Local Special which is a great value providing 4 courses for $39. I had the salmon (an extra $8) which was cooked perfectly and my husband had the chicken parmigiana which was very tasty. They served homemade bread with a red wine/sea salt crusted butter - both fantastic. The lobster bisque was delicious, although my husband thought it could be thicker. The food presentation was artful and pleasing to the eye. The Tiramisu was so nicely presented you didn't want to destroy it - but it was worth the effort as it was the best I've ever had. I would eat here again.
(We had the calamari in the lounge earlier which was cooked perfectly - so tender with a light and crispy batter.)

Very classy with the linen table cloths. The chairs are so comfortable. You can have a conversation without raising your voice.

Not sure why but the waiter kept saying ladies and gentlemen when he approached our table (of 2).
Overpriced.

We had a wonderful dinner. Really nice atmosphere. Lounge chairs creates a very relaxed atmosphere, with very nice food. We had calamari, Rossellini, and a black seafood spaghetti (dyed black with cuttlefish ink) in a saffron white wine cream sauce, and chocolate pate for dessert. All of it was very nice. I will say it was creamy and buttery. Service was fantastic
