“Good Authentic Canadian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We decided to eat and drink everything Canadian at this restaurant because it oozed the smell of maple syrup from the sidewalk. We started off with a specialty martini made with maple liquor and syrup and had the goat cheese and truffles, which was very good. For our main meals, we had the bison tenderloin wrapped in bacon and bison stroganoff. The portions are really rich and big, and I ended up having lots of leftovers the next day.

“If you are used to average food this place is great...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The food isn't good for the price you pay, we expected a better overall experience and wouldn't choose to eat there again as the food was a little greasy (we both had a pasta which was covered in to much sauce)

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We went in for the locals special and it was fantastic. For only $30 per person we had an amazing three course selection. The smoked tomato soup was a hit and the salmon was beautiful. Of course when you finish with a molten chocolate souffle nothing can go wrong after.
Jessica our server was wonderful, friendly and funny. Thanks Maple Leaf. Great as usual.

“Decent bar & grill in Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

From the outside it looks like a typical N American grill restaurant, and inside it's full of large tables & seems to cater for big parties, but the surprise was that the food is actually quite interesting. I had the vegetarian option which you wouldn't usually expect to amount to much in what is predominantly a steakhouse. But the veggie option was imaginative with an unusual mix of flavours, and while not cheap exactly, was good value for money.
