We had the best service tonight. I have been to TFH a number of times but the addition of more space was a real treat, first time sitting in the previous cafe space. You can tell that the servers enjoy their job, and are very passionate about it. The highly trained staff have made this experience top notch tonight!

I brought my mom here for a belated Mother’s Day with my 2yr old daughter. We did the afternoon tea and it was amazing. It was a bit on the pricey side but for a special occasion “once in awhile treat” I could justify it. They were very accommodating with my toddler daughter made her feel special and included in the tea and I didn’t feel uncomfortable when she cried out and made a bit of noise like some nicer an establishments do. Looking forward to celebrating another special occasion there again soon!

My daughter and I attended the dinner and movie so we were served in the car museum. It was a lovely meal. But I could not finish and when I asked if I could get a takeaway container I was told there was none and they took away my plate. Later I saw another table got a container for food. At this price point, this is terribly poor service. I lost out on half my main course.

Always a popular place for Calgarians to gather and celebrate, we are the preferred dining choice for birthdays, anniversaries, milestones or just meeting friends and family.

Of course there is a creative selection of steaks, chicken and seafood to satisfy everyone. It would be a great idea if you saved room for one of our delicious desserts...even if you plan on sharing.

We wanted something simple for dinner and chose Crave. We shared a caesar salad to start and I had a burger while my wife had the salmon. The food was good, portions appropriate, and service was outstanding. It was pretty quiet which really surprised us as there aren't many places in Banff where you can get a decent meal at a reasonable price. We would go back for sure.
