    It was okay. We were there for the New Year’s Day brunch buffet. Most of the food was empty for the better part of our visit. The waffles and French toast were super dry. The big seafood addition for the higher cost was a plate of shrimp and some sad looking mussels. Definitely not worth $36 per person in my opinion. Will try somewhere else next time.

    There were no salads at all. The normal fare (scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausages, etc.) was cold. Even the eggs benedict were cold.

    We had been to the Thanksgiving or Easter brunches as Banff Park Lodge in the past, and while it is not the Banff Springs spread, it is not bad and cheaper. The one disappointing issue with this weekend was the lack of clarity on when the brunch was to end, and abruptly. This was different from our past experiences, and had we known, we likely would have booked a bit earlier as we felt we were being shoveled out and the food (though still plentiful) was being taken away promptly at 2 PM while accepting a booking for 1:30 PM leaving only 30 minutes to scramble. Since we has seniors at our table, it took away from the relaxed vibe in the past, and forced everyone to rush to get food (since we did pay for it). Hopefully, the staff and management might consider ensuring bookings have about 1 hour to amble for food - allowing time to digest and then have desert, etc. Something that the Fairmont knows how to deal with. So not recommended until they work out the booking bugs, and perhaps this is partly a problem with the OpenTable app as well. Will try another venue for Christmas and/or Easter upcoming as cannot rush seniors. It spoils the mood.

    Crave Mountain GrillResponded on October 18, 2022Good afternoon, Thank you for taking your time to give us a feedback. We are disappointed that you had a bad experience with the lack of clarity on when the brunch was to end. We take every feedback very seriously and will make sure this is improved in the future. We greatly hope you will give us another try next time as we would love the opportunity to make it up to you and turn your opinion around. Kind regards, Nathalie Senkyrova Outlets Manager

    Thanksgiving brunch was disappointing for the price. There was a long brown hair on one of the cold plates of pickles which turned me off. The chocolate fondu chocolate tasted off and not good. Some items seemed stale and redone in the baking/desserts. Overall wouldn’t come back.

    Crave Mountain GrillResponded on October 18, 2022Good afternoon Lisa, Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at our Thanksgiving brunch. Our kitchen team is doing their best to quality check the buffet through the whole brunch to make sure everything is always fresh and the buffet is clean. We hope you would give us one more chance in the future so we can turn your opinion around. Kind Regards, Nathalie Senkyrova Outlets Manager

    This is not the Sunday brunch they used to have before Covid. There were very limited options compared to what they once had. This was just a regular hotel breakfast.

    Crave Mountain GrillResponded on October 18, 2022Good afternoon, Thank you for taking your time to give us a feedback. I am sorry to hear about your disappointment. Unfortunately, we don't offer Sunday brunch anymore as we did pre-covid, except for special occasions such as Mother's Day, Father's day, Thanksgiving, etc. I am sorry to hear about this misunderstanding and I hope you will give us another try in the future, as we would love the chance to turn your opinion around.

    Appalling Booking confirmed and reconfirmed on the day. 2 hours before the reservation we found out by accident that the restaurant was closed. No information had been received and the booking was still live. We checked with restaurant and they confirmed they were closed and offered no reason why. You can imagine how easy (not) it was to find an alternative at short notice on a bank holiday Saturday evening. Whilst restaurants have operational issues there is no excuse for not contacting confirmed diners, especially when you have access to an internet booking system. This clearly shows the lack of commitment to the paying public - very poor show.

    The buffet brunch on Sunday use to be amazing! Now the selection is extremely limited, the table we were sat at was dirty, and the dishes and silverware were poorly washed. The eggs were even cold. It actually was sad because it use it be so great!

    This is a glorified hotel lobby restaurant. We were going to try the Prime Rib which was the weekend special, but we’re told after we ordered that they were out and couldn’t fulfill our order. The wine list was lackluster. The waiter came to our table with no greeting and asked if we had decided. Rated the food low because we never tried it since we paid for our drinks and left,

The Yorkshire pudding was amazing and the portions were generous Would definitely recommend this place

    We celebrated Fathers Day at Crave Mountain Grill. It exceeded all expectations! There was an incredible variety of stations with everything imaginable. There were salads, breakfast foods, cheese and charcuterie, barbecue, prime rib, garlic prawns to name a few. There was also a nacho bar. The dessert options were tantalizing. A chocolate fountain with fruits and other items , an ice cream sundae bar, and a huge selection of items such as tiramisu, macarons, cheesecake, chocolate mousse, petit fours and many others. Everything was fresh and delicious. They had homemade sauces and dressings. We were so happy with every. The service was excellent. They also had live music by an excellent guitarist.

    This is a beautiful restaurant and the food was very good. Service was good as well and food was quickly brought to our table soon after we ordered. We had the Prime Rib dinner. Prime Rib was cooked as per requested, one medium and the other medium rare, both with excellent flavor. Mashed potatoes were also very well done and again tasted excellent. Yorkshire pudding was some of the best that I have had. Deserts were also very good. Only issues that I had follow. Would have been nice to of had some good appetizers and We ordered a garden salad and requested Thousand Island dressing which they didn't have.

    They forgot our sons meal but never acknowledged it - just said it'd be out soon. Our food was cold by the time his made the table. The potatoes were bland and the prime rib was overcooked. The fish and chips were so greasy they were inedible. They never came to check on our table and the blinds were left open for over half the meal which made the table hot, and hard for the two of us in the sun to see.

    Food was excellent. Steak sandwich, prime rib, ragu, then brownie and banana split for dessert. Victoria was a great server, very helpful and friendly, even if I couldn’t negotiate for a Yorkshire pudding ;-) We’ll be back. P.S. the old fashioned was tasty too.

    The buffet was alright but was very expensive for what was actually at the buffet. I could have easily had a better meal for half the price at an expensive steakhouse. I also didn't like the fact that gratuity was automatically added for a buffet - all the servers do is ask you what you would like to drink and then take your plates away.... Seriously... They could have at least talked up the buffet, or informed us that the non-alcoholic beverages are included in the price and asked us if we would have liked refills...

    Our family spent Christmas Day in Canmore and Banff and decided to try the buffet at Crave for our Christmas dinner. We all enjoyed our meals and were very satisfied with the selection of traditional Christmas dinner items as well as some tasty specialty selections. The restaurant was fairly quiet and was not crowded so that was a plus for us. The service was very good and our server was friendly and attentive.
