There is no doubt that the scenery and the service is beyond reproach. However, the restaurant needs serious menu update to meet Fairmont's customers' expectation. It is average for the very high price.More

We visited the Vermillion Room for breakfast every morning of our trip to the Banff Fairmont. The food is amazing! Everything is fresh and homemade, with no detail overlooked. Even the butter is delicious and made in house. The staff at Vermillion is phenomenal. They...go out of their way to attend to every need and anticipate your wishes. My husband and I particularly loved getting to know Zoran a bit. He was professionally and personally a joy and we appreciate his recommendations for local areas to visit. The Banff Fairmont is just as spectacular as the photos show!More

Four adults and two children. Long wait from ordering drinks to getting food. No bread? Slow refill on water. Turned out that the wine we ordered was not what the waiter thought it was and he apologized. All servers wore masks - but no diners...wore masks! I had salmon which was cooked nicely but was a very small piece with a couple teaspoons of rice. No veggies? I was still hungry. The men had the steak which was a large portion, excellent, but here again, no veggies? Kids' meals good, fast and the dessert was a thrill for them - loads of ice cream. Very expensive for very little food. Wouldn't go back.More

A great dining experience. Shout out to the friendly staff, including the hostess and manager with a special thanks to our waiter Terry, so friendly and attentive! Thanks Terry. Oysters were amazing as was the Striploin. Truffle fries are a must!!

While staying in the hotel, we dined in the Vermillion Room 3 times. Dinner of cocktails, French Onion soup, beet salad, and filet mignon with chanterelle mushrooms was delicious. When my friend left dinner early because she wasn't feeling well, the waiter packed up our...leftovers for me and provided a complementary hot tea. We enjoyed their breakfast buffet twice, as there were many items that you normally don't get on a typical buffet, such as French style yogurt, plums, and cherries.More

My parents are locals and usually there is no way to get in here without a reservation. Due to the pandemic, we walked right in. Beautiful place. Staff exemplary. We didn’t have the buffet, as I get too full. Oatmeal was delicious, as was the...avacado toast. The pancakes were delicious and wow, what a pile of bacon we all shared! Huge portion. Very expensive, but I always enjoy it here.More

Food was superb and the service was fantastic. There was a good amount of time between courses. I would say is the portion sizes are fairly big (which we like) so maybe worth asking to have an extended break between courses.
