“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We went here for a late dinner after some meetings and as it was off-season in Banff, it wasn't real busy. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable with the menu and tried to pair the right food and wines with other food etc. We did get a couple of appies which were excellent and the salad was good as well.
All of our steaks were cooked to perfection and all of the family sides were delicious with plenty of food for us all.

All in all a great night out and one of my favorites in Banff.

“Succulent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We went in for a steak on the recommendation of our hotel front desk and absolutely loved the place. They were professional, courteous, and friendly. They hung our jackets with smiles and witty banter, showed us to our table with the same, and provided wonderful table service all with the quick witted charm and humour we see in films yet rarely experience. Wonderful staff. The steaks were succulent as they were cooked to perfection. I had a bone in rib eye that literally shed its bone and JUMPED in my mouth it was so tasty...my girl said I ate it so fast I didn't take time to chew lol. Well it melted in my mouth :) this will be a regular stop for us when we go to Banff. Simply outstanding product and service door to door.

“very busy restaurant with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Saturday night in Banff is very busy with all the visitors looking to eat - and we went out without a reservation. Nevertheless they managed to find us a table and we were looked after very attentively by their waiter who upsold us some wine rather than the Argentina Malbec we were after . The food was great, but the wine was not as good as was suggested - the waiter was mortified and took it upon himself to make sure we had a desert course free of charge . We would happily return there and recommend the restaurant for the food , the atmosphere, and the service
