“Lucky find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

If we hadn't found this restaurant on Tripadvisor we would never have known it was there as it is tucked away at the back of the Banff Park hotel. Excellent fine dining experience with good wine list. Not cheap, but worth the extra. Popular, so best to book a table.

“Slow service good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We dined here with our two grown sons on Christmas Eve. Food was great but our server was clearly unable to manage her load of patrons and we sat for long stretches waiting as well as having to always ask for what we needed.

“Fantastic Find!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We had an absolutely outstanding meal with 8 family members on Christmas Eve this year! The menu has something to satisfy every taste from young (5 years) to the birthday boy (71) . We were particularly impressed with the extensive gluten free menu that was required for 2 in our party. We began with cocktails in the lounge and enjoyed handcrafted drinks featuring fresh juices that are a rarity in most places these days. For appetizers we shared the venison carpaccio (delicious!), escargot en croute, and the scallops in buckwheat crepes. The bread baskets with fresh olive, goat cheese and lime butter was to die for (they also had a separate basket of gluten free bread - unheard of!). Entrees ordered were the elk, lamb, pumpkin ravioli, tenderloin, the sauces were excellent and everyone was a winner. The wine list is extensive, the staff knowledgable and helpful but not overbearing. We were too full for dessert but will definitely return to try. The decor was tastefully done in a holiday theme which added to our overall experience.
This is a place that we will be returning to again and again!

“Looked Nice But Had to Leave”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

About 5 minutes after we were seated at a nice table and started looking at the menu a large group (20 people) were seated right behind us. They were so loud I couldn't hear myself think let alone carry on a conversation with my wife.

The wait staff couldn't/wouldn't change our seats as other seats were "specifically" reserved for other people.
