I don’t know if the reviews we read prior to going hyped the place up too much for us or not but we weren’t impressed.

There was 7 of us, we all ordered cocktails to start, 4 of us ordered appies and everyone ordered mains. We weren’t even 1/3 through our appies and our mains showed up. Three of us ordered second drinks when the mains showed up. Then our server didn’t come back to see how everything was going or if we needed another drink until 5/7 of us finished our mains. I ended up ordering another drink then. Everyone else had to wait for me to finish drinking it so we could leave.

The experience was sub par and I wouldn’t come again nor would I recommend it to anyone else. Felt very impersonal and as though we were being rushed in and out. Our whole dining experience was 1 hour and 35 minutes. Great if you want speedy food, not so great if you wanted to sit around and hang out, the vibe just wasn’t there. I’ll admit their liquor is awesome and I bought two big bottles to take home but again, I wouldn’t come here to eat.

We brought our two young kids and had a great dinner. Fun drinks for the kids and quick service and colouring to keep them occupied. Tasty food for everyone. Did I mention quick service with the young ones.

Was seated far too close to other table, less than 2 feet away. Girl sitting on bench scooted right up to my friend to let her guest out, we’re literally touching shoulders.

Had a smoked drink initially which smelled and tasted vile, although staff took it back for an exchange.

Shrimp tacos and veggie bowl were delicious. Pecan tart too.

Service was a little slow, am not sure if they were too busy or if staff kept forgetting about us. We would see them look at us after waiting awhile, eyes would go wide like they forgot, and would run back to the kitchen returning with our orders right after.

Being seated so close to others was very uncomfortable, ruined the experience from the start in spite of good food and fairly good service. We were at the half bench seating near the front.

We had a wonderful evening at Park. We dined upstairs and the ambience was perfect. The Sawback cocktail was the best cocktail I have had yet in Banff. Our dinner was wonderful and Brad was super fun and knowledgeable.

Loved the place. The food was really good and super fast service (I would have liked to receive my food a bit warmer, but then again, it was super fast service and the food was delicious). Everyone was super kind and I was able to get a table a bit before my reservation time. Overall, love this place and will certainly eat here the next time I`m in Banff.

Excellent food and service, overall a great night out. The band were musically very good, just a little lack lustre, although this may be because of the no dancing requirement. We will definitely revisit !

The appetizer was tepid - not hot
The tuna ceviche was tiny-two small triangles
Disappointing for the price.
Unfortunately facing the kitchen I got a view of the assembly line.
The server was really friendly.

The restaurant was overcrowded and our table for two was within an arm's length of and between two other tables.
The waitress took our order and did not come back to our table again until about half way through our meal.
She did not return to take a drink order as initially requested.
I would recommend this restaurant only to do takeout.

Our waiter didn’t come to our table after us sitting there for 10 min . So I asked a wonder waitress to get our waiter for us . After another 10 min she came back and said I’m so sorry I guess I can help you . I donno maybe he was to busy but she got a nice tip 😉

The hostess didn't even smile. It was -30C outside and they crowded everyone in the front by the door even though there were tables upstairs and away from the door. Freezing cold. Beer taps weren't working. We ate quickly and didn't stick around.

Christmas- we didn’t know it was going to be a buffet but understandable. However, the food was very disappointing. Like a bland hotel buffet. Nothing special, not great. The service and drinks were great, though.

Their tables for two were very tiny. We ordered a salad and hot wings as appetizers. Five minutes after we got the appetizers the Alberta Prime Rib and Benchmark Striploin came to our table. I had asked to have the dinner delivered after we ate the appetizers. Consequently, the dinners were cold by the time we got to them. To make things worst, the Prime Rib and Striploin were toughest steaks I’ve had anywhere. Just the worst Christmas dinner I’ve had in my life.

We love coming here. The food is delicious and ambience is awesome for all. Just disappointed as our daughters kids mac and cheese was cold, the noodles were a bit chewy and the gluten free buns with our burgers were dry. If you have ever tasted a gluten free bun you know that it requires some heat and a bit of tasting to taste great. Small issues as everything else was still delicious and we will definitely go back.

Dinner was decent. If your a person of colour I’d avoid this place. All you get is stares. Best thing on the menu are the chicken wings, everything else was severely under whelming. Had a table for 6, one seat didn’t have a backrest and was open to another table. Very awkward seating.

A group of seven adults and children dined here and only 2/7 enjoyed their meal. The house salad was overdressed and did not enjoy the dressing. It claimed to have fruit but only had raisins. The salmon was super greasy and tasteless. The kids’ Mac and Cheese was runny and overall tasteless as well and the Prime Rib was chewy like rubber. Even the tomato soup had a weird flavour. Overall very disappointed and would not recommend.
