The Rundle Lounge is casual dining at its best with a great menu and very affordable. Service was really good with friendly staff. Would highly recommend.

the chairs are high and comfortable but you might not be seen. we had to go to the bar for our own drinks. the server was very attentive after he and she found out.. They were very apologetic but just tell someone you are there when you walk in... its crowded so its understandable how you can be missed.

We ate lunch here 4 times in July and August. While the food quality was average, the environment was wonderful ,and the price was quite reasonable for a high end resort property. In the past, we also had drinks and dinner here as well. I would say it's a good fall back for guests in the hotel who just want... More

We always try to find at least one fine restaurant to dine in during each trip so we were happy to eat here as a hotel guest. Of course the food was great but the service matched the food step for step. Tables are well spaced and we were treated to a great outside view watching a snowstorm in September.

A lovely experience but Canadian afternoon tea cannot be compared to a good British afternoon tea. Would highly recommend for the setting and service.

My husband and I had a reservation for afternoon tea. As there is no signage indicating where the Rundle Lounge is located, it took us a while, even after asking two staff members, to locate it. We were seated fairly quickly, but then were made to wait 20 minutes before anyone came by to offer us menus and drinks. Although... More

The Rundle lounge over looks the mountains and the river and the windows are huge giving light to the area. We were talked through all the different teas by Emma, who knew her teas and was very helpful. We upgraded with a glass of prossecco it was a large glass! We had very berry tea which was fruity without being... More

We visited the Fairmont Banff Springs during the end of August, 2014. During much of our 2-week stay in Alberta, the weather was relatively cold (high 50s to low 60s with frequent clouds), so we were ecstatic with cooperative weather during our lunch at the Lookout Patio, which is part of the Rundle Lounge. Our party of 6 consisted of... More

Reasonable prices and excellent service! For lunch, we ordered steak and frites, house lamb burger, seafood chowder and the surf and turf roll. Including our drinks, everything was wonderfully tasty! No complaints!
