Attended as part of tour group. Greeted and escorted to table on arrival. Requested coffee and orange juice and served immediately. Breakfast was served buffet style and was an extensive selection. Excellent quality and start to the day. Friendly impeccable service. Highly recommended.

Italian themed and at the front of the hotel, so no lake view. The service was excellent from booking by phone to table. Pricey though.

Excellent service at this Chateau Lake Louise restaurant but the food is just average considering the price you are paying.

After arriving at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise we were told the hotel was full and advised to book a meal. The o ly time we could get was 5.45 or after 9. So with a hungry 15 year old we opted for the earlier table. The food was lovely although not sure it matched the price tag - very... More

We were given the royal treatment and even the Hotel sommelier happened to be in our restaurant and helped us with a fantastic wine. Our waitress was great and the food was very nice .

Was a good night and the menu was quite good. Nice setting in the hotel with plenty of room. I had steak for dinner this night and it wasn't cooked properly. I asked for medium rare and received something that was very rare in the centre. I could have squeezed the blood out of it. I ate around the middle... More

Looked forward to a nice dinner but was disappointed. The specialty was veal stuffed with crab and pasta on the side. It was inedible, far too salty. I know good chefs use lots of seasoning and that's ok with me but this was so salty you could hardly taste the veal. The crab stuffing was just ok and the overcooked... More

My husband enjoyed his meal. My so called veal saltimboca was wrapped in prosciutto on all sides, over cooked and topped with a dark brown gravy, not a light pan jus. There was little or no sage and the was entirely to much prociutto. My sons spaghetti was simply overcooked. I know fresh pasta, i i know al'dente pasta and... More

We had dinner at this restaurant. The fish and meat items were overcooked. Every possible food item was draped in bacon. The veal was overcooked and pasta (out of the box) was under-cooked.
