As one of the ritziest restaurants in town (and the only one with a well-enforced dress code), Le Beaujolais offers the very best in fine dining. With delectable rarities such as grilled Alaskan halibut, brazed British Columbia salmon fillets and Albertan caribou steaks, the potential for gastronomic indulgence is unlimited. The famous "surprise dinner", which includes six pre-selected courses as well as several "chef's surprises" will cost Can$72, while three course meals will run to Can$50 to $60. There are over 600 wines available, starting at $30 per bottle. The subdued and relaxed atmosphere, complete with spotless linen tablecloths, is refined without being ostentatious.
We have taken a long time to get to this restaurant and it used to be the place to eat in Banff. Obviously no more - the cuisine was very dated (1980s) and the food was simply terrible. Overdone stringy elk, unrecognizable gnocchi and a wine list that has not moved with the times. This has to be the worse value for money I have experienced in many years. Poor food and vastly overpriced. It looks as if it is on its last legs - ambience is bare bones and the flowers on the table were all wilted. The service was very friendly and helpful - the sole blessing.
I agree with the reviewer who stated the food was tasteless and terrible, because there are just no other words to describe it.
Service was worse. Every few moments we were approached by the waitstaff with suggestions for yet another wine, (we already had two bottles on the table). My husband finally agreed to a glass and we found a hefty charge for it on our bill.
At the end of the evening we had an enormous dent in our wallet and were left wondering about all the rave reviews we had read. Asking around town uncovered the answer. Management has been hiring staff straight from cooking school.
Don't waste time or money here. There are far better establisments in the area.
My wife and I went there for the first night of our honeymoon. I wouldn't say we are uncultured by any stretch, but the food was just awful. We did not know what we were eating, and what we did eat didn't taste good. Exceptional service, but the terrible menu overshadows it by far.
From the time you enter Le Beaujolais to you leave you have excellent service and the food is excellent. They have changed the menu and we missed some of the items on the old menu but you can not go wrong dining in the little restuarant overlooking the city. It is pricy but worth the experience.
