We only visited the restaurant for breakfast and had the buffet a couple of times and A La Carte another couple of times.
Food is really nice and the omelette station is excellent.
One small gripe is that eggs are extra (poached, boiled or fried) and in New Zealand where we come from, that is never the case. Other hotels in Canada we stayed in did not charge for eggs of any style. The orange juice was a bit watered down too, juice isn't that expensive so would expect it to be at full strength.

We had the 2016 Christmas Day buffet at the Crave and it was definitely a 5 star experience!

We booked in for the Christmas Dinner buffet for our visit from Scotland. We had a great server and the service was good. Food was plentiful, well presented and tasty. Highlights were the whole roasted sirloin which was cooked to medium rare perfection. Smoked fish and charcuterie were also very good. The chocolate raspberry mousse was a nice way to end the meal. Great atmosphere and we’ll come here to eat again for sure next time we are in Banff.

I hope it was just an off night. The banff park lodge used to be a premier stop for visiting in banff. The Crave restaurant was booked for our group of 16 plus. Overall dinner was quite underwhelming considering the restaurant was nearly empty on Friday night. Not sure what was up here but mediocre service and food for all of us.

Spectacular deal for breakfast...French toast, caramel, bananas, strawberries, maple syrup for fifteen bucks can't beat that.

Went there for breakfast. Wasn't busy, 3-4 tables. Food was average at best, yet quite pricey. Service started out good but then dropped off. I wasn't offered a refill on my coffee, despite sliding the empty mug to the edge of the table. After eating we had to wait about 10 mins to get the bill, and had already put on our coats to give them the hint we were ready to leave. There are many fine restaurants in Banff, go somewhere else.
