“Overcooked fish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We tried the maple leaf as it was recommended .we were very disappointed particularly as it is supposed to be specialising in fish dishes. The fish was very overcooked and dry and given the cost we found this to be unforgivable. The atmosphere was also very muted.

“Fabulous bison steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Great service, wine list. Bison steak was fabulous. Ask for table upstairs near front of restaurant. Back tables have patrons and waiters constantly walking by.

“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Great meal. Started with the Game Platter to share - awesome, if a little large. Would have been better suited to 3-4 people not just the two of us. My husband had a steak which was cooked to perfection. I had the ribs which were tasty but I would've preferred a little more sauce. The staff were great and really knowledgable about the dishes.

“Excellent server and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Came to banff for a weekend with family from England, had a fantastic share platter and pulled pork BBQ sandwhich. The waiter, whom we found out upon chatting to, was from Australia was excellent, attentive, friendly, and gave spot on recommendations. The only negative part of our visit, or more point of criticism, which really didn't impact upon us at all as we were in the care of our waiter, was the sultry looking lady stood by the door 'greeting' people...who I found out was the manager when I asked her. She rolled her eyes when people came in, gave half a smile, and was borderline rude when hinting that if we didn't want any other drinks we should have the bill. I don't know her personal circumstances but as a maître d' I would certainly not put someone so abrupt and grumpy at the door, being the first impression of the establishment. Overall fantastic place, fantastic food and fantastic staff, bar the said one. Well worth a visit!!!!
