“Fine Dining With An Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We stayed at the Lodge for 5 days and had dinner here a couple of times. The kitchen is excellent. We can't think of any dish we did not find beautifully presented and prepared. There was a good choice on the menu and an attractive wine list too. It was September and already cool enough for a blazing log fire after sunset in the evenings, which added to the ambiance later in the meals. And the view, oh the view as the sun was setting.

“Didn't feel clean”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

End of the season 2013 . . . guessing everyone was tired and ready to close?
STRONG smell of methane gas was of concern.

Beautiful views, nice location.

“Pleasant but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

Ate here in Sept 13 on a very cold and rainy evenning. Had not booked but were welcomed warmly and quickly seated near a window with a lovely view. Started with nice glass of Pinot Noir ($12 a glass) and ordered the Boar chop with vegetables and Vegetable Risotto - both meals were pleasant but nothing special. At $35 each we had hoped for something better. The service was friendly and efficient but with no change from $95 for a glass of wine and an entree - a bit too pricey for what was delivered.

“beautiful meal in a beautiful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

The service was excellent, and the food was very well prepared and presented. I had the scallops as a starter with the rack of venison as the main course. I thoroughly enjoyed both. This is a restaurant I will return to.

“Best meal we had during six days in Banff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

My wife and I walked into the Moraine Lake Lodge with no reservations and were very fortunate to find an open table. The bread service was accompanied by three types of butter and cheese spreads which were all delicious. For a starter, we got the cream of asparagus soup which was also great. But the main course of halibut with avocado butter atop Bhutanese red rice was to die for! Hands down, the best meal we had during our six day stay in Banff. Highly recommend reservations and request a table along the back window for an excellent view of the lake.
