3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was looking forward to a good steak but this restaurant did not meet my expectations. Both my husband and I ordered our steaks med-rare, but they were served almost well done and weren't very warm. They tasted ok, but not great. I was glad I ordered mine without sauce, as my husband's steak was drowning in sauce. The sides we... More

Our hotel receptionist recommended this place. We opted to dine upstairs in the restaurant rather than in the more informal bar area on the ground floor. The food (we both had steak) was excellent but it was also the most expensive meal we had during the whole trip. I guess what I'm saying is that I felt it was overpriced.

This place is busy and they could not find us a table upstairs for 30 minutes so we had a drink downstairs which turned out to be a really nice bar with good service and vibe. We could have ordered our food at the bar but we were ushered upstairs to a lovely dining room, again the service was very... More

We were looking for a great restaurant to go to for our anniversary while on vacation in Banff and relied on our AAA guid in choosing this restaurant. We were seated promptly and all the personnel were very friendly and courteous. We ordered steaks - mine a sirloin and my wife's a filet, a caesar salad and scalloped potatoes. My... More

Staff were friendly and the food came out quickly. The burgers were moist and tasty, fries were crispy. Serving sizes were good and it was reasonably priced. Would happily eat there again to try other menu items on future trios.

All of the food served at our table was memorable, the wine list was excellent, and the service was impeccable. We sat outside, enjoyed the fresh air and had attentive, but not overbearing service. Based on other restaurants in the area, the prices are very reasonable for the "top shelf" food and service. The salads with Salmon and Hanger steak... More

Lovely restaurant, great service! Our family went for dinner and had a pleasurable time. Our waiter was wonderful and knowledgeable checking on our meal and was able to remember all our names. He was careful to advise us not to over order and most of the sides were sharing size. The decor very nice and the location easy to get... More

Excellent staff, atmosphere, superb food. Music was a little loud but you can't please everyone. Our server, Leroy was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The scalloped potatoes are to die for. Would definitely recommend and go there again when in the area.
