Steakhouse
NEW! Welcome to Bluebird restaurant... A wood-fired steakhouse specializing in prime rib of beef by night and Banff's most scrumptious brunch by day (with a mid-century love for cocktails both day & night). Inspired by charming mid-century chalets, Bluebird is a premier place to unwind after a day in the Banff wilderness. The restaurant explores the rich alpine culture and the primal instinct to seek shelter, fire and socialize before and after a bluebird day. Bluebird delivers steakhouse classics reborn, comfort foods to fit the mood, breakfast to set you on your way, and well-loved classics in a stylish, historic, and iconic Banff building.

    The Sunday roast beef supper was very good value. We enjoyed the evening. We did get seated upstairs which felt a little out of place but we did change our reservation time so that might have been why. Also we got charged for another entree when it was actually an extra side dish we ordered. We didn’t notice until after we paid. They said they will correct it so we will see what happens. However it was an overall nice experience.

    The Sunday Prime Rib was not advertised on the Menu but an excellent meal with mashed potatoes and some roasted veggies/carrots. The cut was lean and I was surprised they did not ask how we liked it cooked but it came perfect for both of us. Thought the beer glasses appeared much less than a pint but our Montreal waiter confirmed with bartender that they were a pint. Easy to park along the river and walk up to that corner OR park in covered Parkade. Nice renovated space for sure. Regular menu is pricey.

    Went to Bluebird to try their new Brunch menu. Do yourself a favour and have their brunch the next time you are in Banff on a Sunday morning! We had the Souffle Pancakes, Croque Madam and Bacon, hash brown and fruit bowl sides and they were all phenomenal. Service was fantastic, design of the restaurant was esthetically pleasing and food was delicious. New brunch place in Banff for sure!

    We were visiting Bannf on our honeymoon and we’re craving a good steak. Came here and we weren’t disappointed with their staff, ambiance and all the choices for food and drinks. Even better we came during their Happiness Hour and a lot of what we wanted to try was on there. Highly recommend coming here for a nice evening out for dinner.

    The service was very poor at the start, but when they changed servers it was first rate. The food was delicious. My only criticism is the price. This restaurant is very, very expensive. We wouldn’t go back because of that. Otherwise it was an excellent dining experience.

    Very pricey but very good. It is one of those places where everything is ordered individually, so a meal can add up. The historic building has been totally renovated and the new decor is rustic chic. The server was very attentive and had several excellent suggestions. Roast prime rib is their signature dish and is done to perfection. The appetizers, sides and desserts are excellent.

    The wait for food and drinks was long. Got there at 7 and didn’t get our drink until 7:30. Dinner came out around 8:30. The food and drinks were really good though. The couple next to us were also there for 2+ hours because of the wait for food.
