Excellent service. Good variety for breakfast. We were there on a Sunday and after 11 AM, the brunch buffet started and more selections. So much food.

My wife and I recently dined in the BVG and were impressed. The view is spectacular. The food was prepared and served perfectly (pasta for my wife and Alberta beef for me). The furnishings inside the restaurant are beautiful. The staff were friendly and attentive but not oppressive. We had a great time.

Frankly, this was the highlight of anything offered by the Fairmont. Every single item was delicious, and was executed the way you would expect from a hotel of this caliber. My favorite was the warmed berry compote which I ate over the light pancakes and the very good banana bread french toast. The omlets were well made, and all the... More

Lots of selections to choose from and fantastic service. Every selection on the buffet was very appealing to the eye and pallet.
