There are only so many places by the windows (which can be pretty chilly in cool weather). But if you can get one it is worth it. Price is pretty high, food is so/so. Place is elegant... read more

Had an excellent meal here but had been seated by the large windows which as the meal progressed the area around the table was quite cold. Service was excellent, food well presented and delicious. Ambiance was missing.

What a superb meal! I started with a Hendricks martini, and then chose the 3 course dinner special for $75 (which was a bargain). I began with the scallop appetizer, moved on to the AAA Alberta Tenderloin entrée, and finished it with the Peach dessert with Vanilla Ice Cream infused with Ice Wine. I paired the dinner with a red... More

This is a dining room that you pay the price tag for the view. Its window facing the Lake. However, although the food is very good, the view is just so so. There is only very limited tables next to window and during evening time, the sun go directly into window and you really cannot see the lake good if... More

We reserved an early dinner many weeks in advance for my wife’s birthday. Arriving 15 minutes before our reservation, we were asked to wait…but were soon seated at a window table with a fine view out to Lake Louise and the glacier beyond. Our waitress was very attentive and professional, devising a special way to provide a birthday candle for... More

Good range of food, excellently cooked and pleasant staff. Best option for dining near the lake though a bit pricey. Do not park in the $25 hotel car park - the public park next door is free!

The only positive I have to say about afternoon tea at the Fairview Dining Room is that the views are breathtaking and service is friendly. Other than that it's the worst afternoon tea I've ever had. Not a single instant of wow!! There's a huge choice of tea, but you're only allowed one kind. The cocktail I suppose is a... More

We had Afternoon Tea here and I can say it is probably the nicest High Tea I have had, more than either of us could finish. Sitting by the window with the glorious view, feeling very aristrocratic, pretending we were from Downton Abbey, this was a real treat.
