                                          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.

                                          We partook of the Friday evening prime rib dinner. The prime rib was tasty and fork tender, excellent veggies and mashed potatoes too.

                                          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.

                                          We had a great meal! Food came out quick and it was a great amount of food for the price! The only thing is that we didn’t realize that it would be in an open part of the hotel, so the ambiance wasn’t as nice for date night but overall we had a wonderful experience!

                                          Very few diners and very quiet on the Saturday evening that we visited which was during a very gorgeous summer weekend but a time of COVID. Food was good. Service was very good.

                                          The food was highly disappointing, unfortunately everything was pretty tasteless for the price as well.. service was great , there is a feel of a cafeteria. Not what someone would look for in Banff.

                                          Delicious food, beautiful presentation. Lovely views. House burger was outstanding, prime rib was very good. A bit noisy from other diners, and service was somewhat slow. Overall, I’m surprised this place isn’t busier. The price was fair for Banff and for how good the food is!

                                          Thumbs up to the staff who absolutely make the best of it, but from previous comments we came expecting brunch and I guess because Covid it’s not being served.

                                          The food was average and nothing out of the ordinary. I expected a little more. Flavors were bland.

                                          Quiet place for breakfast. We had the Omelet and Belgian waffles which were both very good and well within reason of Banff pricing. we were staying in the Banff Park Lodge so we only had a few hundred feet to walk which was part of the decision to eat there. We were pleasantly surprised by all aspects of Crave for breakfast.

                                          It would have been great if meal was served hot instead of Luke warm and the service could have been better. We had to ask twice for water refills. No check in on how food was or anything.

                                          Very limited menu with very little chicken dishes and no seafood dishes. There were 5 small, cold greasy-tasting shrimps in my main course salad that was saturated with too much dressing. The waitress had a strong accent and was hard to understand under her mask. The prime rib was good.
