We had the multicourse Christmas dinner at The Banffshire Club and were profoundly underwhelmed. It was a fine meal, to be sure, but absolutely nothing to write home about - nothing creative or particularly delicious. Just reasonably prepared, very safe, standard fare.
We had been on the waiting list all week, and were very much hoping to eat here, since we were staying at the Fairmont Banff Springs. We were very pleased when we got a last-minute reservation, only to be quite disappointed. For a $600 meal for two, one certainly expects quite a bit more.
I'm sure our experience the night before at Eden, at the Rimrock Resort, influenced this reaction. The multicourse meal at Eden was nothing short of spectacular, and essentially what we expect for this type of dining experience and price.
