The food is exceptional, one of the best dinners I've had in a very long time. The prices are quite high, but excellent service.

This is an expensive restaurant and the meal portions are small for what you pay for. We had a very grumpy waiter as well.

Was expecting a very good standard of food as hotel concierge had recommended this restaurant. Being so popular it was advisable to book, which we did. On arrival at 18:30 it was busy. We ordered French onion soup which unfortunately was more onion soup than French. Our waiter recommended the bison tenderloin which we duly ordered. The tenderloin was masked... More

We got a very good review of this from fellow who checked us into our hotel. We weren't so impressed. It was more expensive than we wanted. We ended up ordering a couple of appetizers which worked out well. We had to wait for a table, but not long.

We came in for an early dinner and chose to sit at the bar for our meal. The bartender was preoccupied with a wedding dinner that was just starting and no one even said hello for quite a while, although we overheard the bartender asking about us, then still never came over right away. We then were able to get... More

Beautiful restaurant with nice wood yet casual. Good thing we ordered bread and Caprese Salad to start because dinner took over 1/2 hour to arrive. Very slow. Rack of lamb had only 4 chops and a few potatoes. My stuffed chicken with potatoes was good. Perhaps a bit high priced for the volume of food but tasty. All food is... More

Choosing a restaurant in Banff for a special occasion is hard because of the amount of good eateries in a small area...We chose and booked in advance the Maple Leaf and it turned out to be a very good choice. For starters we had the Crab cake & Goat's cheese which were very good but the main two meals were... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal here. The restaurant has a very pleasant, tranquil atmosphere. A little on the expensive side but worth it - the food was delicious. Tables are not too close together and the service efficient. Booking advisable.

Thank Yvonne B
