We came here on a Saturday night at around 6 without reservations. The whole place was fully booked.and we were seated at the bar instead. We would have preferred a table but the food was very good nonetheless. As the place was crowded the noise level was on the high side but not excessive. Also being seated at the bar means you are constantly aware of the waitresses going in and out of the kitchen area and for us at least, there was not much atmosphere to speak of. If you come here for the great food hsving a reservation would be helpful.

We stopped by Crazy Weed after a full day of sightseeing in Banff and were pleasantly surprised to be seated on a busy Friday night. When we walked in we immediately noticed the casual, yet upscale vibe of the place. This is clearly a place where locals and visitors enjoy a meal. You can't miss the gorgeous bar or the semi-open kitchen, exuding amazing aromas, that were both in view. It was busy! Hosts, servers, bar tenders were all moving quickly but efficiently. Rather than feel chaotic, it seemed like all staff were focused on providing great service for their customers. Our waiter through the evening proved this to be true.

If you are a lover of fine wines, this is the place for you! While a bit on the pricey end, the wine list is diverse and extensive. While you can buy a few wines by the glass, it would be great if there were a few more reasonably priced bottles for purchase. Beer and cocktails were also available. Like the wine, the menu was varied with options that included everything from salads, small plates and full meals. Many reflected an Asian influence. We enjoyed the Salt and Pepper Calamari, accompanied by a flavorful cilantro lime sauce. We followed this with Thai Chicken Salad. Both were very good, but not remarkable. BUT the Warm Date Cake with Bourbon Butter Sauce and Orange Cardamom Ice Cream was truly exceptional! Crazy Weed is a mixed review for me. Our food was mostly just better than average with the exception of that cake). Food and drinks are the pricier end of things, especially the wine. I'm not sure the meal was worth the cost. The staff and atmosphere were great. Would I return? Maybe.

This was a great experience from start to finish. Interesting menu, spot-on service and warm, unpretentious vibe. We had the bimbap, forest floor mushroom pizza and a lovely bottle of Okanagan wine that paired well with both. We considered it good value - because the quality of the food is really outstanding.

It has a very nice patio to relax and have a cocktail. The cocktails were good and the apps were tasty. It was a pleasant hour with my spouse. There was not any thing outstanding about the menu or service.

The food was good. A very eclectic menu. The service was also good. But we all thought it was a bit pricey for what we ordered.
