The food and service was fantastic! The staff were friendly and they made an extra effort as we were there for my wife's Birthday
Splurging to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary we indulged ourselves with afternoon tea at the Banff Springs Hotel. The $74 pp (although a tad pricey) was worth it for this special occasion. Service was great, food was delicious and the view was spectacular.
Excellent tea service. Very enjoyable. Highly recommend.
Greatly enjoyed the afternoon tea experience. The food was excellent, though wish there were a couple more options or additions.
Service was great.
The noise level was a little high; piano music coming through speaker system was very loud.
I would definitely return, though perhaps choose to sit in a different location.
Truly a beautiful experience from beginning to end .
The food & service was outstanding and the views were majestic .
One of our favourite points was how amazing the piano player was during our meal .
My boyfriend and I did the Afternoon Tea experience at Rundle Bar and it's definitely something everyone should try at least once! We were seated at a couch with a table in front of it - wish we could have had an actual table, but this was the best view available at the time (which was appreciated). Also quite pricey, but obviously the location makes it worth it. We especially enjoyed the Tofino Tuna sandwich and the scones!
Tea was very disappointing this year because we were seated downstairs in the lounge instead of upstairs where tea is usually served. The food was still fantastic but the view and ambiance was very disappointing!!
Service was amazing. Ambiance was perfect. Would definitely return.
Tea at the Banff Springs has been on my Bucket List for years. I could picture it. My picture and the realty did not coincide. The sandwiches were good but not overly fresh, the deserts were a disappointment,. The peach tart filling tasted like baby food with a thick graham wafer crust, the Paris Brest was not appetizing to look at nor could you taste the strawberry flavour. The macaroons were also a disappointment. The Nanaimo Opera Cake was delicious as were the plain scones.
I hold the Fairmont hotels to a high standard and this time, they came up short.
Fantastic experience. 10/10.
Had afternoon tea and it was a great experience. Definitely recommend it to everyone.
The afternoon tea experience at The Fairmont is one of a kind. Highly recommend!
They had a table all set up for me in the corner with good views. It was very comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. The service was good and the room was beautiful.
Server and the food were both great. Dumplings and Poke Bowl were very tasty and flavorful
Very lovely and relaxing experience. The only thing holding me back from a full-on 5/5 rating is the stiff competition from the afternoon tea at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald in Edmonton.
The experience at the Rundle Bar - Fairmont Banff Springs was amazing! The food was delicious and the environment was very soothing. The whole experience was wonderful.
Food was mediocre for the price paid. $64.00 each person was excessive. Even have one for $74.00!! for 1 more tiny sandwich. The tea was very good, server very nice, and atmosphere and view were great. Both of us left hungry, cannot recommend the tea luncheon. Just go for a walk around the property instead and views are free.
Beautiful presentation and very comfortable seating!
Room was too hot and the food was horrible. Worst afternoon tea...
This was one of the best afternoon teas I’ve done. I did one recently at another Fairmont and it wasn’t the best. I was very pleased with the food and quality of the teas. I wish the presentation was a bit nicer e.g. nicer cups, tea pot and stand for sandwiches and sweets.
Sandy was a lovely server and took great care of us. Our table was awesome with beautiful view of the mountains. Thank you!
Very nice view and atmosphere! Ankit is a very great waiter, brought us complimentary Prosecco for our bachelorette.
Outstanding food, service, and view.Nice selections of teas.We couldn't eat all the food
but they provided a box,and made a nice snack.
The only off putting thing was all the people coming through the high tea area to get
to the patio.It wasn't a big deal just seemed like alot of people coming and going.
Would go again.
Wonderful service and they offer halal meat and chicken for the afternoon tea which was wonderful!
If you are looking for an exceptional afternoon tea experience..... you won't get it here
Good food. A little loud music. Amazing and fast service.
Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive.
Absolutely delicious!!! Loved the sandwiches and desserts!
Our tea choices were excellent. Most of the sandwiches were quite flavourful - but you could tell one had been made too far in advance and the bread was quite dry. The pastries were fresh and delicious.
A real treat.
Afternoon tea at Banff Springs is an essential part of a trip to Banff.
Afternoon tea was very overpriced for what you get. Service was subpar at best.
The staff was friendly and the food was great. The high tea was a great experience and I highly recommend it.
Afternoon tea was exceptional. Great selection of sweet and savoury. Beautifully presented.
The pastries were not as good as previous times. The servers were very accommodating. Unfortunately the music in the background was not conducive to an afternoon tea experience.
Absolutely wonderful as always. Beautiful being in the mountains, the view is spectacular. The staff are always great. You can’t beat high tea (or any other meal) at the Banff Springs.
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our Afternoon Tea at the Banff Springs! The staff were extremely accommodating of my dietary restrictions and for that I am very grateful. We really enjoyed the food, the views and the service, and hope to be back soon!
We took Grandma out to Banff for High Tea in the Rundle Lounge and the whole experience was wonderful from the view, to the delicious treats with tea. We even had asked for a special request for our young Princesses and the Fairmont went above and beyond to put a little extra sparkle in their day. Thank you to Sandy and the rest of the team we could not see behind the scenes that made our trip out with Grandma and the girls so much more than we were expecting. I highly recommend taking a little extra drive to Banff to visit the Fairmont for tea.
Great afternoon high tea! My fiance and I loved it! We asked for a seat with a view and they delivered!
The wife and I went for High Tea
Air conditioning would have been nice because it was hot.
We had a wonderful experience having tea at Rundle Bar! Lauren was lovely and we really enjoyed the Canadian tea. There was also a live pianist. Beautiful views of the mountains!
