    Probably our favourite experience in Banff, from the service to the food I don’t think there’s any better. Must do when there for a fantastic dinner. Tartar, steak, crudo, desert - everything fantastic. Will be back

    We enjoyed a fabulous meal this evening with an attentive waiter named Kevin. My husband enjoyed the best short ribs he had ever eaten! I delighted in a warm beet salad and a mushroom stroganoff that was absolutely amazing. A rush of flavors and a mixed spread of mushrooms. Excellent service and really outstanding food! You would not be disappointed!

    In addition to the bison tomahawk steak, we were lucky to try the spring feature menu. Food was amazing!

    Absolutely incredible! Food was outstanding, especially the bison short rib and bison Caesar salad. We came to celebrate our honeymoon and a birthday and our waiter Chris made our experience extra special, he was super friendly and attentive!

    Overall, this is a very good restaurant. The spring menu was amazing for the price, but the first course could have been better. The open kitchen isn’t much to look at - cleanliness and organization, and the bar is in an odd spot.

    Great menu - the dilemna was choosing - there was a very well priced spring menu as well but we went with the brocollini to start which was delicious with a tonata sauce - Kimberly had the bison short rib which was outstanding and I had the duck with green curry sauce which sounded quirky but was excellent Liz. A great wine and drinks list as well - we had a bottle of the La Stella Fortissimo which paired perfectly. Great service as well.
