Great breakfast buffet!

We had the Sunday Brunch there. Lots of choice and excellent food. Outstanding service. Little bit pricey (about 100$ for 2 adults) but our waiter offered us many times coffee, orange juice, hot chocolate, etc. Highly recommend!

We ate here (within the Fairmont) a few times. We were never disappointed with the service or the quality of the food. A great place to eat for sure

What a delicious breakfast! Get a table by the window and enjoy good food, good service and beautiful mountains. If you are on a budget, head in to town for a meal!

A delightful dinner. Exceptional, accommodating waitstaff. We both had the Alberta beef tenderloin which was perfectly prepared and mouthwatering. Ask for a table with a mountain view. Nirvana!

One of the best steaks I've ever tasted! We were 7 who just showed up and asked if they had room and they were very accommodating. A few of us ordered the steak, one burger and one shrimp curry dish and everything was absolutely delicious! We sat by the window looking out at Banff and it was just beautiful! Would... More

Truly enjoyed the wonderful service and VIEW from this wonderful breakfast buffet. The food was fantastic and they even had poached eggs ready at the buffet. This may not sound like much but whenever I ask for poached eggs at a buffet, I am usually eating 30 minutes later. Great fruit and breads

We made a reservation 10 minutes before we left our room. We waited a few extra minutes when we got there, but that's because they were catering to a large travel group. The kitchen accommodated my veg diet and even gave me extra veggies!

We went for sunday brunch with a large group, our first time in 5 years. There was a great selection of hot and cold items, something for everyone. Dessert section was particularly good! The only downside is that the price has gone up quite a bit.

Very attentive and friendly service, we ordered one tenderloin and one prime rib as main course, both medium-rare. Tenderloin came well done. We complained, they admitted their mistake and we got served a then-perfect steak. Manager visited us and apologized - nice gesture. All in all, despite that hiccup, a great dining experience - that comes at a price.
