“Best after dark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Located in an atrium off the lobby and bar. View during daytime is uninspiring; but, romantic setting after dark. Menu is not extensive; but, it is varied and excellent with very nice presentations.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We understand that this is Banff's #1 restaurant. The beet & fennel salad with some walnuts, goatcheese en orange is fantastic. A bit more goatcheese would have been nice for a more salty bite. The smoked duck tasted very well. The salmon was delicious, however I would prefer mashed potato instead of wild rice. The vegetables are ok, only the broccoli is cold. The beef tenderloin tasted well and is medium as ordered. The bill was 138 dollars for two entrances, two maincourses and pairing wines (4 glasses in total). Not very cheap, but we enjoyed our dinner

“Interesting menu - definitely worth a visit...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We were dubious about this restaurant due to the location, but our concerns were unfounded.

The menu is interesting, although very limited for vegetarians and geared towards meat eaters (only 2 fish dishes). There were some strange combinations (coffee infused mashed potato for example) but these strange combinations were not overpowering.

The food was not fine dining, but the chef is trying hard and making a good effort... overall, we thought it was pretty good (even though my Arctic Char was overcooked) and we enjoyed the food/evening.

The restaurant is quiet, upscale and has a good wine selection and great cocktails.

If we had any complaints at all, it would be to improve the options for vegetarians.

We would definitely recommend it if you are in town for a few nights - well worth a visit,,, and don't be put off by the fact that the hotel exterior isn't too salubrious!
