Food was awful, we felt so bad that we still took it home but quickly threw it away. Wasn’t for us
We are on our 10 year wedding anniversary trip and like to enjoy fine dining. It was excellent!
It was an amazing night and atmosphere to set the tone and mood for a newly engaged couple to start talking about their future wedding plans; the service (Michael) was sensational and extremely personable. The food was incredibly delicious, and the ambiance truly made it a special night to remember! Thank you Sleeping Buffalo!
Lovely cosy decor. Food was very good and beautifully presented. We would order everything again: scallops, duck confit, charcuterie board and gluten free flatbread. Excellent accommodation for gluten and dairy allergies. I would have rated this restaurant higher, however the restaurant was very quiet, 3 other tables yet the service was very slow. It took over 35 min from the time we sat down to get our first plate; and at least 20 min to get our first round of drinks.
A quaint New Year's evening, with impeccable service and a 5 star meal.
Excellent food and wine Loved the cozy ambiance by fireplace It’s fine dining by fireplace!
Great food and professional yet friendly servers! One of our favourite restaurants in Banff!!
We love the Sleeping Buffalo - the food is amazing, the staff outstanding and the atmosphere is so cozy!
The service and food were excellent!
We thoroughly enjoyed the innovative Canadian cuisine and ambiance. As we enjoyed our delicious appetizers, gorgeous deer grazed outside the window under the Christmas lit lawn! We had mentioned that it was a special occasion in our reservation and regrettably no extra attention was given but the food and service were so good we will definitely return anyways 😊
We had an excellent experience for my wife’s 50th birthday in November. It was quite and offered us the privacy for good conversation. The food was excellent as was the service. I would recommend Sleeping Buffalo to anyone.
It was our anniversary. They had flowers at our table .. complimentary glass of Prosecco. Amazing service . Once again we shut the restaurant down . Made our special day complete... thanks and see you next year
Server was friendly and engaging, and was the only server on duty, consequently dinner took two hours, and we did not have dessert or after dinner beverages.
Food was mediocre, gnocchi was dense, heavy and needed better seasoning. I adore staying at the lodge, but will never eat there again.
This is definitely a hidden gem. We were having a mini honeymoon in Banff and we loved this restaurant. The reservation was easy to get, we were greeted like old friends, the food and wine were explained to us and the experience was exceptional. Thanks very much for a most enjoyable evening.
Food was yummy and the Rocky Mountain cuisine was unique. Our server, Courtney, was fantastic- funny, helpful and attentive without being too much. The cookies were excellent as was the Heirloom tomato salad.
We had a pleasant dining experience at Sleeping Buffalo. The atmosphere is quiet, you can have a conversation without any interferrance. Quite romantic if that’s what your looking for. If they had a fireplace in the dining area, it would have been perfect.
I had expected more ambiance and also food with more flavour. my wife had fisk, and we have tasted better, but it wasn't bad at all. but the total bill was (much) higher than what i felt i got for my money
What a great experience. Our server Luke was awesome. Very knowledgeable and provided great service throughout our evening. We have the mushroom ravioli as a starter and it was perfect. Could have that as a meal!!! Chicken dinner was fantastic. We will come back as it was a great evening out.
Wonderful dinner of game meats, with attentive service.
Revisited the location on our anniversary. Great location. Would visit again.
This restaurant was a huge surprise and delight. We had driven for 5 hours form Kelowna and wanted a good meal but really didn’t want to drive anymore. We were staying at Tunnel Mountain Resort & it was right across the street. Fab food, great ambiance & great service. We totally lucked out!
The chicken dish was random chunks of white and brown meet swimming in a bowl of cream I thought I was ordering a juicy chicken breast and leg. The salad was stingy with dressing, cashews and four thin slices of nectarine. The service and ambience was impeccable.
Everything was wonderful...waiter, cocktails, food! I had the free range chicken in a cream broth with mushrooms. So tastey!! The potato/sweet potato gratin was also really outstanding. If I lived anywhere near Banff I would truly enjoy trying the whole menu. It was a wonderful end to a week in the Canadian Rockies.
Quiet, small dining room in Banff. We originally were interested in this restaurant for their game meats (we saw elk, bison, etc. on their posted menu). The actual menu seemed to be missing a few of the items we were interested in like the elk carpaccio and boar, which was disappointing. We got the charcuterie board which was lovely, their daily mushroom soup (tad too salty), the bison duo (delicious), and the gnocchi (underwhelming). Service was also slow - seemed to only be one server for the whole dining room while he was also running around the back doing things. Took a while for us to get more water. Felt a bit overpriced for what we got (our whole meal was about $140 excl. any drinks), but this is a nice option if you want to get away from the crowds and noise of the main village eateries.
A delicious dinner with great service. Loved the after dinner hot apple cinnamon tea cocktail!
Food was cold and over cooked, server was alone in the dining room with a least 10 tables, no manager came to help him, bartenders first day didn’t know basic drinks, we will not return
Nice restaurant although no views. Atmosphere is very nice. Service was excellent. Good wine list but bit pricey. Food was good but had better salmon and portions but small especially for the bison steak. Bit pricey for portion size
Food and service was good but the menu was not as good as when I have dined here in the Winter
We were the only family in the restaurant, for a late lunch at 1:30pm. Yet, the waitress didn’t fill our water glasses, realize a drink had been spilled, or check on the quality of the food. The food was cold when it arrived. The “fresh baked bread” was still cold on the inside, like it had been reheated from frozen. Plenty of great options in Banff, this didn’t make the cut.
We met at Buffalo Mountsin Lodge, and had oor first date at the Sleeping Buffalo, 23-years ago. Here celebrating our 20th Anniversary. Service was fantastic! Thank you for the menories.
We've been to the Sleeping Buffalo many times and the atmosphere and food are always great. On this occasion we were joined by friends from Europe. It was good but the main course took almost an hour to come to the table after our starters. A bit long. Other than that great. Very knowledgeable and friendly waiter, great food.
It was totally awesome. Great food. Great atmosphere and great location!
We ate here while on vacation. It was delicious. We started with a half charcuterie board. My husband had the bison duo and I had the boar tenderloin. We finished with the Apple strawberry crumple. My only regret was not being able to try more dishes!!!
It was our 45th anniversary. We started with the charcuterie board for 2, and it was really good. For a main course. I had the salmon and my husband had the bison duo.....both excellent. The dining room is beautiful so the ambience is there.
Das Essen war hervorragend !!! Wir hatten das Bisonfleisch . Auch die Beilagen sehr lecker !!
The charcuterie board for $30 was advertised as “serves two” was hardly enough for one person! Was shockingly small. One small piece of cheese on it. Were the two people supposed to share the one piece?
We ate here prior to a concert at the Banff Centre. Quiet place away from bustle of downtown. Our entrees - steak/bison were very good and our server accommodated our timeline
The food was good. The ambiance was nice. It was a lot more expensive than I thought for the meals. Overall a good experience but a little hard on the wallet.
Place was awesome. Food was fantastic. The server very knowable and also super friendly.
