    Our server Corey was excellent. Very professional. For the cost of the steak I can find better. I also thought the blue cheese add on would be a butter. Instead it was a piece of melted cheese on top of the steak which I removed as it did nothing for the steak.. Salad was good. Roast carrots were tasty. Do not think I will return here for steak.

    I thought going to a high end chop house would would be a great chance to enjoy a masterfully cooked pork chop for a change. What I received was a sous vide chop that although cooked to a perfect medium, it was totally devoid of flavor. The figs on top as well as the fig jam and mole jell did not help the lack of flavor, in fact they took away from what little there was.

    Great tasting dishes, and attentive service. Our waiter James was amazing. Ordered several dishes throughout the night , some of which were his recommendations and all dishes were honestly great. The 60 day aged Alberta steak was one of the best pieces of meat that I have ever eaten! Portions are on the smaller side, restaurant is quiet and dimly lit. I really liked the fact that their menus were backlit, making reading in a dark room a breeze. Would definetly check this place out if you are in Banff.

    My husband and I celebrated a mini moon weekend and his birthday at the Fairmont Banff Springs this weekend. We were greeted at the chophouse with their beautiful a la carte champagne selection in fireside seating. We had already enjoyed a bottle of Veuve to our room in advance of dinner, so selected a single glass and we were very pleased with the house champagne - Mission Hill. We subsequently enjoyed a delicious winter tomato brurata salad, which my only smallest of feedback would be a bit of sea salt would’ve elevated the dish - it was otherwise perfect! This is a preference with brurata of course. Following this, we ordered a half bottle of Brunello as recommended to pair with my tenderloin (Bernaise add on, lobster tail add on) and my husbands A5 Wagu Filet. Our meat was perfectly prepared, medium rare, as requested. The cuts were of the highest quality. We ordered the asparagus which was perfectly cooked, and the whipped potatoes which were also perfect, as accompaniments. The service was impeccable, and our server was very gracious when I nearly knocked over the wine (I am a bit of a hand talker). We finished the meal with dessert, the Carmel sundae, and it was delicious. We wished to try the port flight which looked exciting, but I decided after the wine incident that I had indulged and imbibed enough for the evening. Last weekend we had enjoyed several Michelin star restaurants in NYC for another celebratory weekend getaway. I would say our dining experience last evening would be on par with “one star” experiences in the past. If you are in Banff, and love steak, you must eat here. In total our bill was an exceptionally reasonable $500 before tip, for the level of beef, service and wine list provided. While this is expensive, you can easily rack up a higher bill at other great Calgary steakhouses, especially when ordering A5 wagu and wine! Thank you chophouse for a delicious meal and for gifting us chocolates for Michael’s birthday!

    Falls short as a steakhouse in a grand hotel destination. The shrimp cocktail was terrible- tiny little shrimp, no flavour. Hash brown is way too big, and more tarama required on that appetizer. Wagyu NY strip was indistinguishable from a standard NY strip. Halibut was nice. Managers: please visit Hys in Calgary and see how this is done.

    We enjoyed the Quebec Fois Gras, Pacific Halibut, and the Brant Lake Wagyu Beef Tenderloin. Everything was tasty. Prices were a bit high but we were at the iconic Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. We had the preserved banana dessert… and it was probably the only dish we did not enjoy as much. Ambiance was good but there was a younger group of ladies sitting behind us that had too much of a vibrant conversation that included some profanities that dulled our enjoyment. Wine menu was extensive and the menu was excellent.

    We started off the evening by visiting some of the shops in the Castle and we were treated so nicely by all of the staff working in the shops we visited. We didn't buy anything, but the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable, it put us in great moods! Our dinner experience was top notch - awesome service by Luke and all the staff from the hostess to all the serving staff - very professional. The food was served at exactly the right moment. The food was superb - beautiful flavours and nice presentation. The portion sizes for the sides were generous and easily served two people. The temperature could have been a bit warmer, but this did not detract from the overall experience. We knew going in that it was going to be an expensive evening and we were not wrong...lol! We capped off the evening by walking through the Heritage area just beside the restaurant. A wonderful evening and experience - the highlight of our trip to Banff.

    Very good food and service however the value versus the pricing is not great. I’ve had meals of equal or greater quality for much less than what you will pay at 1888 Chop House. I would recommend you venture out in the area and you’ll find an equivalent meal for much less money than you will pay here.

    One of the best dinners we've ever had. The food was fabulous! Recommend the scallops, halibut, bison tenderloin and ice cream with carmel sauce. The staff was exceptional.

    Overall I was disappointed. For a chop house, there were very few steak options. We opted for the $95 Filet. It arrived so overcooked on the outside that it was difficult to cut and was chewy. Not how a filet should melt in your mouth. The appetizers and sides were very good. The service was fine. I asked if there were other drinks besides wine and he said yes. However it wasn’t until the dessert menu arrived that I saw the cocktail menu. Not sure why he didn’t offer it at the time. When the bill arrived I was dismayed. A $400+ check with $200 worth of disappointing filet from a chop house. For the price, I do not recommend.

    My wife ordered the 12 oz wagyu and it was very disappointing. We have eaten wagyu many times and what she was served was not wagyu. I told the waiter about it but he did not really know what to say. Her steak was good but it was not wagyu. Also the presentation was very poor for the cost. I get you have to order a separate side but they could have done something on her plate. Just a big white plate with a piece of meat on it.
