We walked in to Vermillion on the first night of our stay in Banff.
A polite welcome to a slightly chilly venue (admittedly it had just stopped snowing outside)
Prompt drink service and our orders were taken in a timely manner.
Delightful pate for entree that was followed by our mains. Mine was a half roast chicken, and the serving proved just too large - maybe I should have read the menu more closely.
A shared pavlova and coffee concluded our meal.
All in all, enjoyable and what might be expected from a five star establishment.

Thank Philonne

We had lunch here while exploring the really gorgeousFairmont Springs Hotel, and it proved to be a tremendous choice. We were given the corner window table, so we had the best view, and the service was very attentive and pleasant. We each had a version of a hamburger, and they were elevated wonderfully. The burgers, listed in French, but one a cheeseburger, the other a hamburger with bacon, both tasted wonderful. (Received so much bacon, I shared)
On top of it, and I doubt this will happen to you, but as the family sitting next to us left, they struck up a short conversation about us getting the best table...we all laughed and I said we were lucky. Later, the waitress said they had paid our check in advance. Not sure why. That would be the one downside here...unless someone decides to pay for you, the cost is about $25(Can)/burger. So, with tip, lunch would have been about $70 (Can)
Super nice people!
Restrooms for the room next to the famous stair case where the bride fell to her death, and they still see her ghost on the stairs sometimes.

I had planned a going away breakfast for myself and about 15 others at the end of August. Called the night before to make a reservationWhen we arrived they had a private room set up for all of us which was a great surprise. The buffet selection was outstanding and everything was so fresh, and always being replenished. The bar was very impressive, all of our cocktails were 10/10 for presentation and creativity, and the tasted amazing. For anyone who remembers the Bow Valley Grill, you would not recognize the Vermillion room today; the renovations they did are very impressive. All the wait staff were very friendly and attentive, it made the whole experience worth writing about. Can't wait to return back to Banff and visit the Vermillion Room again and bring my family.

Stayed at the Banff Springs for a week and dined in the Vermillion Room several times. It has a great daily breakfast buffet which is extended on the weekends. Highly recommended.
