Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff!

We just had our wedding at Buffalo Mountian Lodge, and I was blown away by the food. We went for a tasting a few months ago, and were stunned by the Rack of Lamb and Salmon, so that is what we decided to order for the Entree choices.

The meals on Saturday were unreal....its one thing to serve a table of 4 a perfectly cooked rack of lamb, but to pull it off for a simultaneous serving of 60 Racks of Lamb and 30 Salmons is a different story. Both were cooked perfectly, the service was very good...(ie, there was never an empty wine glass the whole night, which might account for the 60 bottles of wine consumed over the night).

The appetizers served during cocktail hour were also out of this world....a quail breast wrapped in Smoked bison with berry relish was unreal.

I highly recommend BML for large events up to 90 people.

  1. I haven't been to Buffalo Mountain Lodge (one of these days we'll get there for a weekend) I've liked everything I've tried from CRMR so far. Your wedding dinner sounds fantastic. Thanks for the report & congratulations! :)

      Let me say I echo maplesugar's observation and add a "congrats" to boot....

      I would have liked to have been there to add to the 60 bottle total....rack of lamb and/or salmon....nice indeed.

      The one time I have wandered up to that part of Banff I fully enjoyed my meal...are they not associated with Divino, Cilantro and The Ranche?

      If so I am not surprised as Divino is "my home away from home" when down in C-town on business.

        You're correct Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts (CRMR) owns The Ranche, Velvet, Cilantro & Divino restaurants. CRMR at home as well as Buffalo Mtn Lodge & a handful of other properties. I have yet to have a bad meal at any of their restaurants... haven't tried them all yet but I will eventually :)
