Hostess was somewhat standoffish. Waitress was helpful and attentive. Food was very slow coming out with long gaps between courses. Lobster risotto was okay - large pieces of lobster and something that resembled risotto. Overall with so many fine restaurants in Banff I would not...return.More

We went for dinner on a Tuesday night, Rick our server was outstanding, he came to see us often and made sure we had everything we need. We felt welcomed at your restaurant with his great service.

We booked the private room for a small wedding reception. The manager, Natalie, went above and beyond for what we asked for and booked. The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was fantastic. I definitely recommend this as a venue for a wedding if...you have a smaller group. We had about 20 people, but their mom I'm sure hosts upwards of 100 or more. Oh, not to mention, leading-up to the wedding, Natalie was very friendly and responsive for the tons of questions we had! Thank you to the Nathalie and the La Terrazza team for making our special day absolutely fantastic!!!More

Came to La Terrazza for my 30th birthday and loved every minute. Ambiance was amazing, romantic, quiet, beautiful setting. Rik was our waiter and was so friendly and accommodating from the start he made the evening that much more enjoyable. The food and wine was...so amazing, this was one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time!! Definitely worth a visitMore

This was an anniversary celebration and so we did not want to be disappointed in any way. Our expectations were exceeded in the meals (we both had the lobster risotto) and the service. Unfortunately we don't remember the female server's name (Carla or Carmen) but...she was knowledgeable and provided the right amount of attention. Can definitely recommend this restaurant.More

Everything was perfect including the atmosphere, food (salmon dish) quality and quantity. The waitress (sorry I do not remember her name) was outstanding, super nice and went above and beyond to accommodate my dietary restrictions. Thanks so much

A great experience! Rik was very attentive without being intrusive. His knowledge about the dishes on the menu was outstanding. All the serving staff kept on eye on the table, filled water glasses and helped serve food quickly and efficiently. All the dishes for our...party of four arrived hot and beautifully presented. One appetizer was ordered. The appetizer was not rushed by the arrival of the main courses. The timing of all the courses was perfect. The salmon was cooked to medium (chef recomended) and was moist and flakey, The Lamb Rack was requested to be cooked between medium rare and medium and arrived cooked to to perfection. The chicken in the Chicken Parmesan was very moist and tender accompanied by homemade pasta cooked to al dente. The vegan gnocchi was homemade and very tasty. The only two suggestion to a perfect dining experience would be to reduce the amount of gnocchi in this dish and increase the amount of vegetables, and include another vegetarian/vegan dish for more choice. The berry Sorbetto included fresh raspberries, was amazing and the perfect portion after an outstanding meal. All in all I highly recommend this dining experience!More

I recently celebrated my birthday at La Terrazza and it did not disappoint. My friends and I had a nice table outside on their new patio. It was a beautiful night and so great to be able to sit outside. We shared some amazing appetizers,...the Bruschetta Tart is definitely a recommend. For my main I had the Shrimp Alfredo, new to the menu, it was to die for. I can't not mention the service as it was, as always, fantastic. La Terrazza is a hidden gem.More
