“So Delicious”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Friendly and attentive staff, beautiful atmosphere and certainly reasonable prices for the quality of food and level of service you receive. The best scallops I've had in my whole life, and an all round beautiful meal.

“Excellent food that has unique items”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We eat here fairly regularly and love the wine list, the quality of the food and the atmosphere. No complaints on our numerous trips here over the years....Love the place!

“Christmas dinner at The Leaf”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner at the Maple Leaf on two occasions in March 2012. Everything was so good that we booked dinner for 12/25 and 12/28 with our two children (22 and 20). On both visits, the food ( bison, pork loin, scallops, elk meatballs) were
excellent (except the Wine salad which was flat and just OK). The decor is perfect for Banff and the staff was very busy (as expected at holiday time) but pleasant. Next time I am in the Banff area will definitely return.

“Disappointing and the service was even more disappointing.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We were the only table in our section that wasn't told the special. I felt that because we had kids we were frowned upon even thou there is a kids menus. Food was slow to come and our dishes were never cleared from our table even when we were paying the bill. I don't mind paying money for good food but $13 for 5 pieces on calamari about the size if a toonie wasn't something we could share as an appetizer. I once a server in my younger days would have been embarrassed to serve this dish. I had the pork tenderloin that was over cooked and very dry but there was no chance to make a comment as there was no good check until we were pretty much finished supper. This was our one dinner to spend our money on a nice outing and somewhere new and I would have got better service at McDonald's.

“Nice tourist trap”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Poor management has turned this place into a poorly run tourist trap. Unprofessional service and bad food.
