Great service; can order meals there

I liked that service started at 5PM, and the music was relaxing and happy; the server offered me a dinner menu at 6PM.

Nice place to sit and chat in the Springs. We had a light dinner and it was great. Wine selection by the glass a little pricey at $16 a glass but that's what you pay for a premium hotel. Service was exceptional I gotta say.

Very neat atmosphere with the fireplace, the big chairs and the bison heads on the wall. Reminded me of a smoking room that the men would retire to after dinner to talk about hunting and making money etc. ie-"man type things"

Dear Valued Guest from Winnipeg, It’s wonderful to hear you enjoyed the atmosphere of the Ramsay Lounge and the Stanley Thompson Foyer below. With its leather chairs, wood paneling and fireplaces below the Ramsay Lounge is the ideal place to surround yourself with friends and unwind in style. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience. Warm... More

We had two meals, one was excellent and the other (scallop starter and Halibet main) was ordinary. Service was excellent though. My Wife's onion soup and schnitzel was superb

Lovely setting but the accoustics were awful; a guitar singer and stone walls and ceilings= impossible place to have a conversation and an after dinner drink. Also, smallest pour for after dinner drink ever!

This bar is a bit out of the way in the hotel and as a result is one of the few places you can sit and get a bit of peace and quiet. Service was prompt and friendly and the setting is relaxing. It was a nice place to wind down before bed.

Within the Fairmont hotel, this is an amazing place to have drink or bite to eat. If it's warm enough, sit outside on the terrace and take in the outstanding view!

We ate there twice. Great place to have excellent food without the expense and time of a regular restarant. Only ciriticism is that a times it is tough to get a good table that you can easily eat at.

Ate here three times during my stay. The service was great and the food tasty. Only issue is that there is not much to choose from for vegetarians. The kiwi sapphire tonic is my new drink for the summer!
