This is our favourite Brunch spot! Good, atmosphere and service are all outstanding!!
The food was spectacular and service was second to none. We highly recommend when you’re in Banff.
Delicious food and great atmosphere. Will definitely eat here again!
The staff was super accommodating, and the food was outstanding! Great drinks as well. We couldn’t pick a favourite dish because everything was delicious! We will definitely be back!!!
Wonderful experience - food, service, ambiance, and company could not be beat!
Amazing restaurant! The starters and mains were simply out of this world. The craft cocktails were stupendous, especially the seasonal Squash Smash. The servers were nice and on point and the ambience of the place was relaxing and comfy. One of the best dining experiences in recent memory!
Delicious Elk Tartare and the best duck breast ever
Great food and nice ambience. Wonderful for a romantic dinner.
Amazing service - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food never disappoints but this was our best visit yet!
Amazing food. We had the sharing platter for two and every item was fantastic.
We had a fabulous time at the Bison. We were there for the taste of adventure. The food and service was outstanding. Antoine was our server and he was very attentive and extremely friendly. We can’t wait to visit again. The only negative feedback is that I wish the Bison and had a functional espresso machine so we could have enjoyed a nice coffee at the end of our meal.
Out of this world food, great atmosphere and exceptional cocktails! We are a group of 12 in for a long weekend and this spot was our favourite. Highly recommend.
We had the special, it was amazing! Best Bison we have had. The Elk tartar was just as good. Our server was great. Overall 5 out of 5, we would defintely go back.
Amazing food and service! everything was perfect. I highly recommend
The Bison special and pasta with shaved truffles were amazing. Everything was cooked perfectly and service was friendly.
I would come back
Food is great and the chocolate cake is very good. Highly recommended
A wonderful brunch experience - awesome food, friendly, unobtrusive service, lovely live music accompaniment, and good ambiance. Would highly recommend and I look forward to eating here again in future.
Food and service were excellent, as always!!!
Everything we had was absolutely outstanding, the environment was perfect, and the service was great. Definitely recommend!
A pricey menu but we shared an appetizer and main and then it is a little less expensive . Sun rock cab a delicious wine. We shared the bison ribeye and sweet potato salad. The room is beautiful and service attentive. Would recommend!
Loved the live music on Thursday eve. Very pretty place!
Absolutely unbelievable. Best meal I’ve had in years. This is a special place. The bison is unreal.
Had the Taste of Adventure meal, was very delicious.
We ordered the $45 feature of Entree, Main and dessert.
The size of the beet salad entree was reasonable, the main included 1 bison short rib with 1 tablespoon of sweet potato purée, and an tiny pumpkin tart for dessert. Left the restaurant feeling hungry.
Awesome experience, great relaxing venue, and friendly personable staff! <3
Everything we ate was amazing. Cocktails are on point and the wine list is vast.
We went for the tasting menu but ordered off of the seasonal as well. The food was outstanding and the service was out of the park. Absolutely an incredible night that my tastebuds will not soon forget.
Beautiful experience in every way! We celebrated a birthday and they really took care of us from beginning to end.
Highly recommend. Food is tasty and unique. Specialty drinks and wine can be pricey so be prepared. Service was excellent. Food served hot. Blackberry sorbet could have used a little more presentation with a few raw berries and mint leaf.
My Bison Ribeye was cooked perfectly !
As were the striploins.
My wife had Salmon also very good.
Great service from Antoine !
We've been coming to The Bison for almost 15 years, and it's always wonderful. Now if they'd just bring back the escargot on a marrow bone...
Highly recommend! From appetizer to mains to dessert, 5 stars. Staff was impeccable. Mushroom appetizer was delightful. Bison trio platter and Halibut was divine! Both deserts- banana one and chocolate were amazing finishes! We will return!
Yummy, Bison platter was delicious. Service was as expected.
Awesome place will be back
Food and service are amazing. They had a live band which added a nice touch to the evening.
The elk tartar and hominy grits were amazing! Original flavors and very good service! :) 100% coming back when returning to Banff!
Beautiful space, great ambiance, excellent service. Will not disappoint!
