    I’ve been here several time over the years and have had exceptional service every time. The food is always spectacular; this time we ordered the 35oz ribeye. It had a perfectly cooked and seasoned crust, and the tenderloin cuts were so tender it could’ve been cut with just the side of your fork. The ambiance is very quiet and classy, yet resort causal attire is allowed.

    We ate in the bar area. Ambience was quiet, not pretty. I recommend eating in main dining area. That being said, the bartender was super efficient, interesting & a great server. Our food was one of the best meals we've ever had. Bison was cooked to perfection. My daughter had surf & turf. Cooked to perfectly. Fantastic restaurant w excellent service

    When we arrived there was no one at the check in desk or bar so we had to wander into the restaurant to find someone. We were then seated at a table with each of us facing a window at night with a limited view because of the darkness. The positioning felt awkward and we would have preferred to sit with a view into the restaurant. Lighting was a bIt harsh over the table so the ambiance was not really there. Unfortunately nobody took our coats so we had to clumsily drape them over our chairs until we noticed some coat hooks on the wall. These are some of the small details that really set restaurants apart. Our server was professional and attentive but unfortunately we found the food overpriced for what we received. We enjoy fine dining and don’t mind paying for excellent meals and wine. Our appetizer was tasty (mushroom tart). I had the Gnudi which was essentially $50 for a small serving of pasta/dumplings with an interesting sauce. Unfortunately the goat cheese in this dish was overpowering and I could not finish it. My husband liked his Wagyu steak but did not find it outstanding. Dessert was simple but good. On the plus side wine list was excellent and prices were fair for a fine dining restaurant. We are not planning on returning.

    I didn't catch the name of our hostess, but she was great. We felt a little uncomfortable at the first table we were seated at, and she quickly and graciously found a spot that we were really happy with. Our server Luke took great care of us. He really took the time to listen to our wine preferences and picked out a bottle that was exactly to our taste. I personally think the cocktail list at Chop is the best of the entire hotel! The service was the perfect balance of being very attentive without being overbearing. Definitely the best service and experience we've had in the entire hotel. The food was incredible, and the service above and beyond 11/10 we will make sure to dine here every time we come to Banff.

    We were coming to the Springs for a conference and decided on a romantic dinner alone the first night. 1888 came highly recommended by a dear friend and it was spectacular! Our waiter Cory was incredible!! He was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The quality of the food was top notch! We are both foodies so we do have a certain expectation with fine dining and this did not disappoint! If you’re looking for a special evening out at the Springs, this would be my first choice!!

    Great food...most of the servers were great. However our primary server was flippant and dismissive of our issue. Specifically...rare steak when I asked for medium..."nobody's perfect". If I'm eating at Denny's...OK...paying $400 to $500 for a meal...not cool.

    Excellent anniversary dinner as always at 1888. Cory was attentive and had excellent recommendations about the menu and wine list - we ordered his Cabernet suggestion and it did not disappoint! and paired excellent with the bone in Ribeye (big enough to share to be sure).

    We had the best dinner here at 1888 Chop House. It was our last day in Banff and we treated ourselves. The restaurant is very cozy and modern inside. All decor was beautiful! Our server greeted us with a choice to start with champagne and introduced us to the menu. Our server, Nicholas was so helpful and excited to show us everything they had to offer. We ended up ordering the bread and butter which of course was amazing, then we shared the pork and scallops appetizer. Lastly for our main we got the 14oz NY Strip which we split and added the Quebec blue cheese on top which I highly would recommend. We had the ice cream sundae and some amazing esprit martinis to end and it was just an amazing experience!! They even gave us a gift at the end because of our engagement earlier in the trip - can’t wait to come back!

    It was a little too noisy to hear our waitress. Otherwise stellar experience.
