This restaurant is on the higher end in a town full of midrange restaurants. The atmosphere is cool and sophisticated, the staff polite and attentive and the food well presented and delicious. The wine menu is extensive and pretty pricey by comparison to its neighbours: for half a bottle of midrange wine, I paid $35. I recommend this restaurant for... More

Another very highly rated restaurant that was OK but certainly not great. The four of had the house specialty, maple glazed salmon. It was too well done and the portion size was really small. I would go to other places in Banff.

The Maple Leaf was so busy upon our arrival that we decided to sit at the bar rather than wait for a table. I had the cheesesteak sandwich and soup and they were both excellent. My husband's Portobello sandwich was out of this world. Our server was delightful and gave us good advice on other tourist type things. Not the... More

We stayed in Banff for a few days and walked around the town trying to find somewhere too eat. My wife chose The Maple Leaf as she really liked the look of the menu which I think a lot of people had done the same as it was a Friday night and thus a bit of queue. They said we... More

We went in for dinner and the staff were helpful and attentive without being over the top. My wife chose a pasta which she found far too spicy and the spaghetti under done. To be fair the menu did indicate some spice But not to the degree she found. I'd recommend the restaurant warns customers. I had steel head fillets... More

We were in Banff for the day and stopped here for lunch. The food was great. I had the turkey barley soup and crispy chicken sandwich. We had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive. I would definitely visit here again if in the area.

Thank Laura D
