We enjoyed the view and the service was great! We both had the Bison duet which was fabulous! Every morsel was eaten up! The kids had chicken fingers but they were very tender and had homemade honey mustard. The bread was a highlight with the goat cheese butter mix and red wine infused sea salt. Kids couldn't get enough of... More

I am very happy to hear you enjoyed everything. I do apologize for the unavailability of the tasting menu. Our chef likes to use the highest quality and freshest cuts of meat and seafood. Unfortunately it is not always possible to get the right number of portions delivered to offer for the following day or two. If ever you are... More

We checked out the reviews and decided to try based on what it said on their web site: "The Terrace's panoramic windows and glass ceiling provide some of the most spectacular views in Banff, from Sulphur Mountain to Mount Norquay." after we were there, we were disappointed right away because while it's true that they have pano windows and glass...

I'm so sorry to hear you feel this way. With our vantage point you can make out Sulphur and Mount Norquay, but there are trees and houses around us. I don't believe it is our intention to deliberately mislead people with our advertising. With regards to your meal, I do apologize, serving a five course meal plus amuse bouche can... More

My parents were in town and due to my previous experience at the Terrace thought it would be a good place to take them. Upon hearing that the chef had changed since my first visit, I was a little concerned as the chef is instrumental in the success of a restaurant. Turns out my concern was unwarranted as the new...

We had a great meal here. We were the only ones there so it was very nice and quiet. Quite peaceful. Our server Sara was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the 6 oz Alberta AAA Beef Tenderloin which was wonderful and very tender.

Once again The Terrace has exceeded expectations!! Fantastic fresh housemade cocktails to start in the lounge (all juices are squeezed by hand) followed by a delicious dinner. Our party of six enjoyed the varied menu from the salmon devoured by the 7 year old to the range of flavourful gluten-free options for the most discerning celiac diner. Particularly outstanding was... More

Ate here for a birthday dinner. Wait staff was informative and efficient and provided very good service. The food was good, although nothing special. The relatively high prices do not really reflect the average quality of the food, so not great value. The dining room itself is actually quite small, so reservations are probably recommended. Bathrooms are a bit of... More

Overall, I would have to classify our dinner on May 29th a resounding success - I had a number of the family guest and my mother compliment the meal they had, the service and the location as well. The choices we offered to everyone and what they ultimately selected were all excellently prepared and very delicious. Personally I had never... More
