Amazing food! Server was attentive and friendly! All Covid protocols were followed, felt safe and happy enjoying our last meal out on their outside patio in a little bit of rain. Space was Covered and the heaters really helped! Will go again for the bison ragu and gnocchi and the tartare!! The bison trio they are famous far was not on menu but I asked and they created it for us!! Amazing cocktails also!
Very good service and the bison trio was excellent. Would recommend.
Probably the best restaurant I’ve ever been in my entire life (and I’ve try a lot).
Amazing food and service! Would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a delicious meal, worth the expense. Friendly staff who are very knowledgeable and helpful.
The food was great and we enjoyed the ambiance of the patio. Servers were very friendly and attentive. But the price is a bit expensive given the portion size.
Amazing food and wine. Great service. Be better when the law allows inside dining, but nothing The Bison can help. Was a great dinner.
Great food and service, doing all they can under the restrictions, but still had to eat outside in the cold and snow so that took a little shine off the experience. The bison and dumplings were outstanding.
Excellent food on a very patio
We had a fabulous experience, great service, amazing food, made all necessary accommodations for seating during the pandemic! Would 100% recommend!
A delicious and well served meal.
Food was very tasty, service was courteous and timely and helpful in suggesting dining options.
The food and service were very good. We would definitely go back.
Brunch was incredible. We had the bison benny and peameal benny and both were delicious. Even the potatoes were fried perfectly. However, the French press coffee was awful. We are small batch coffee drinkers, so we are used to French press coffee. I’m not sure if our server used too many beans or what, it was just undrinkable. But we will definitely be back for the food!
Delicious food - we were there for Easter Sunday brunch
Delicious food and cocktails, nice atmosphere and staff. overall a great experience!
Food and service was amazing. I will be back for sure
Great food and great service
Definitely give the bison rib eye a try! Great service by our waiter!
Amazing food, great service and cool cocktails. It was our first restaurant in Banff and it set the bar pretty high. No other restaurant has compared yet. Thank you!!
I always wondered why such high reviews. Today, we finally had a chance to reserve a table. Amazing staff, great menu and fantastic taste! Jenny helped us and made our evening extra special. She suggested the trio which was perfectly enough for two. About the taste, we wanted to try it all and we did. It came with bison sausages, short rib and steak with some roasted squash. So good! Next visit to Banff will include the same order for sure.
Amazing!!! This is an fantastic restaurant with a beautiful vibe. The Staff was kind and very knowledgeable! The food is delicious and cooked to perfection! I can’t wait to return😀
It was great!
We came in for a quick brunch on a tight timeline on Sunday, March 28th. The hostess at the door was extremely friendly and welcoming. Carla our server was awesome! I had to order for the whole table since everyone else was running late and she was extremely patient and accommodating. The food was amazing as always! We met our timeline effortlessly thanks to the staff! Highly recommend Bison brunch!
Thanks so much! Bison Platter was awesome!! Nik (sp?) and Chris (sp)? we’re excellent . Couldn’t be friendlier. Excellent suggestions on local attractions. Recommend to all!
Amazing service and food!!
Second time coming back to Bison. The first experience was great and this time was no different. Tried a different dish this time and still so delicious. Highly recommend to anyone.
This was our first reservation at Bison restaurant. We will definitely be back. Our service was excellent and the food even better. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
Second time at The Bison and again it did not disappoint. Hands down one of the best restaurants in Banff. Classy setting, very quality food with creative combinations, for an overall satisfying night out. Will be back again!
Fantastic. Will definitely be back next time I’m in banff
Excellent! Great service. Food was delicious! Highly recommend.
Amazing meat, incredible service! I definitely recommend this restaurant!
We had a great night at the Bison Restaurant. We ordered the special and tried 3 different types of cooked bison with polenta and vegetables. It was delicious. The bison meat melted in our mouth. It was really good. We would definitely go back.
The service was excellent, the food was amazing, and we loved the decor and ambiance. Thank you for the birthday candle
Absolutely loved our dinner at The Bison! Our server, I believe her name was Jenny, was lovely and knowledgeable! The food was absolutely delicious and loved the music that was being played as well!
excellent service and food are farm to table. Such an amazing experience
Awesome. Very nice evening
We went to The Bison to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and were not disappointed!! The staff was extraordinary and the food was exceptional. Probably one of the top meals in my life. Highly recommend.
