The caribou and bread alone are worth a visit. Homey atmosphere and good service. Will return to try the elk and bison short rib.

We went mid-week and had the Taste for Adventure menu. 3 course meal. Wonderful service. Quiet civilized atmosphere. And the food was superb! We will plan next years trip around the same time!

Staff great, breakfast smorgasbord great, lots of selections and fresh. Lounge menu lacking in appetizers, we were not very hungry but wanted a quick snack and a beer, not much on the menu, keep it simple maybe some ribs or wings, at least an option.

Our server was fantastic and the menu very unique. There was bison, duck, and other game meat on the menu, as well as usual fare, but the atmosphere, staff and chef that created the meals were superb. Yummy!!

This restaurant was recommended by a few locals and we figured that was a great sign! Called about 30 mins ahead of the desired table time, and sure enough they had an open table. We were seated right away and the table service was excellent....More

Food in the restaurant was excellent, cooked fresh with vegetables which were unusual. If you wished to amend something with your dish, it was no problem.

Description
Dining in Banff at Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a delicious departure from the ordinary. Imagine smoked, cured and roasted wild gameasty root vegetables, mushrooms and mixed grains. Fresh indigenous berries and other wild fruits. All artfully assembled and professionally served. Our wine list was awarded Gold at the Vancouver International Wine Awards and we feature an outstanding collection of the world’s finest wines, including Canadian VQA selections. Newly Renovated! The Sleeping Buffalo Dining room now has a more modern look. Taking inspiration from natural elements surrounding the lodge such as wood and stone and incorporating additional natural materials such as granite and leather, the newly renovated dining room reflects upon the components that make up Banff’s natural and stunning landscapes and the mountain lifestyle. Surrounded by high vaulted pine ceilings made from post and beam architecture the dining room has a warm and intimate atmosphere.
