We had booked afternoon tea some 6 months previously from the UK in order to celebrate our son's 18th birthday. We were about half way around our tour of the Rockies, so it seemed ideal to stop at this famous hotel and sample the delights of 'high' tea. We were not disappointed with the quality or the service. The choice... More

We were staying nearby on our honeymoon and wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. Choosing the Fairview restaurant at the Chateau Lake Louise was the worst mistake ever. Things went wrong from start to finish. We booked a table for 8:30pm but when we arrived at this time we were told there would be about a half hour... More

Had a table by the window to celebrate my husbands birthday. We took advantage of the three course meal package and were delighted by all three courses. Starters of scallops and tuna were divine; entrees beef perfectly cooked and duck that was moist and succulent. Top this off with delicious desserts. Service was excellent and pleasant (special mention to Luis... More

Drove up for the day from Calgary and had a lovely lunch. Sat outside with the stunning view and smell of conifer. Menu had excellent options. Service was good. At least I was happy, and all requests granted promptly and correctly. Food was good. My palate isn't particular, but food hit the spot for what I was desiring. Value acceptable... More

Poor quality steaks even after replacements were requested. For the prices we paid we expected prime beef.

The view from the restaurant was great, but thats all, the restuarant was expensive, food was average or below, and service is horrific. they never poured the water, just left the bottle on the table for self service, they did not even clear the table for the Hor D'oeuvre spoon until after desert! could not find a server by waving...

Wait staff were caring and prompt, the view obviously very good. The food was at best average, paying 5-star prices for 1/2-1-star food. Not what one expects from a Fairmont Hotel and certainly not at Lake Louise. The "dining experience" requires a complete overhaul.

Went there for dinner. A surprise was that the hotel discriminates in favor of in-house guests when it comes to making reservations, which is somewhat peculiar (but has not affected the score given). The view from the dining room was stunning. The food, on the other hand, was everything but. Starters were fine, especially the crispy pork belly. Main courses... More
