A delicious and well served meal.
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!

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.
