At Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise the Food was good, the kitchen food runner was great.. Server lacked training & the server next to us as well... Yep! & other slang words ( I wouldn't even use in a small town diner) the people beside us wouldn't understand, they had minimal English. They had a 3yr old who constantly walked around... More

Our party of four dined at the Poppy Brasserie during our stay at the Fairmont. Given the iconic nature of the hotel and the description from the check in staff and the concierge of a true French Canadian dining experience, our expectations were high. The layout and the decor of the restaurant was fine. The staff were friendly but seemed... More

You cannot see the lake when you dine here, making it much less crowded. Nevertheless, you will enjoy the casual atmosphere and food. French onion soup was delicious as was the hot roast beef sandwich.

We ate here twice while staying at the Fairmont. Well actually some of us ate twice, since one of our party was ill from suspected food poisoning from eating shellfish (mussels and prawns) the night before. Dinner was good, steak excellent, staff service very good - a table found for our party of five at fairly short notice. Breakfast was... More

We were staying close by the Fairmont and after walking around the Lake we reviewed several of the dining options at the hotel and decided that Poppy's had the menu that would suit our palates.

3 star for the dinner where there was not much atmosphere, was expensive and the food was not great. We were disappointed. 5 star for the breakfast - fantastic choice - all delicious and set you up for the day. Loved the made-to-order omelettes.

We ate dinner once here and breakfast once too. The menu is good for both meals and it's less formal than the Fairview Restaurant. However the downside is that there are more children here. If you're lucky you can get a table that overlooks the lake.

If you get there at 6:30 am when they open, you can get fresh food from the buffet. Thirty minutes later, the scrambled eggs have no moisture left. Food wasn't bad, but service was very slow. Couldn't get a refill on coffee 2 of 3 days.
