convenient but a bit over priced

I got food from the restaurant to take up to my room for a quiet night in…I found the serving size average and the cost a bit on the high end of average. I ordered chicken parmesan, the chicken was delicious but the pasta that came with it tasted kind of strange to what I am used to. Food may... read more

Group of 60 in the banquet room which was too small for the group. Pizza buffet was expensive and was terrible. Service was extremely slow for drinks as drinks did not arrive until most were finished eating. Built in 18% gratuity was excessive for level of service plus surcharge of $8 per person for the room was too much

A somewhat Interesting restaurant. Food was good but portions of lasagna was very small! The spaghetti dish with meatballs was very good! The server was not very good or didn't seem interested in her tables! We kept having to close the door near the restaurant to stay warm! Wine was just ok.

It's a decent placer to eat if you don't want to leave the hotel. Same menu as the dining room, but eating in a more casual setting.

Ordered takeout for dinner and the food was very good. Had the risotto balls, chicken parmigiana and spicy penne. Would definitely return.

Our family of four had a lovely meal here on our last night in Banff. We shared bruschetta and their signature meatball starter. Both were very tasty. For our main course, two of us had lasagne and two had pizza. Again, they were delicious and filling. Our server, Sarah, was also very friendly and chatty. Excellent value for money -... More

My husband and I were looking for a casual locale for casual fare after our first day out skiing. The Meatball is located within a hotel (Ptarmigan Inn) near our own (Aspen Lodge) so we decided to give it a try. The bar/wait staff were quite friendly and welcoming, as were the best seats right by the fireplace. We ordered... More
