The menu isn't huge but is varied enough to have a good dinner and we loved the food. Living room style seating is nicely arranged, providing a relaxing and intimate ambience and fun dining experience for us.

Great service and some nice views. Lots of comfy seating for small or larger groups. The food menu is small but a great place for drinks or coffee. The fresh made moscow mule is a must try!

We went to the Rundle to wait for our table in the 1800 restaurant, also in the Fairmont Banff Springs. honestly, I would have stayed there. Drinks are well mixed, good appetizers and enough for a light meal. great decor and atmosphere, so unique.
