We had a wonderful meal recently at the Banff Springs Bow Valley Grill despite having had a rough start to our Saturday brunch. We had made a reservation and had confirmed it with some additional information regarding allergies, but when our party arrived, no record of the reservation was there. We were seated in an area of the restaurant that was quite noisy due to a table right behind us with a large number of younger children. We requested a change of table, which was readily accommodated, at a window with a lovely view yet, which was greatly appreciated. Given two different allergy requirements for two in our party, the restaurant was most helpful in providing a "guided tour" of the buffet, pointing out allergy-free alternatives. There were many items that were labelled gluten free, and many choices available for one in our party with a nut allergy. The food was very tasty, with a plentiful variety of choices for different tastes, including both breakfast and lunch entrees, and a sumptuous variety of choices of meat, fish, some seafood and cheese, as well as a variety of nicely prepared vegetables and fresh fruit. They also offered a selection of foods appealing to children. The gluten free desserts, I might add, were absolutely delicious…no sacrifices there! We came away satiated. We had been told when making the reservation that there was a discount for seniors, but discovered when we asked about it, after receiving the bill, that they had discontinued this. However, they gave us a discount for our meal, given the mix-up, which was very kind. We very much enjoyed our meal and appreciated the service provided. We will be back!
