High Tea

Not really a big tea drinker but I did enjoy their fruit tea especially seeing that we had lunch after a wonderful sleigh ride around Lake Louise. Sandwiches were interesting but the pastries were the best. Service was very good.

This is a fine restaurant with a skilled chef. Unfortunately, chef is a strong believer in garlic mash, and clings to the idea that everything on a plate should be stacked in a tower. So, you get wonderful rack of lamb or salmon that gets slathered in garlic (!!) mashed potatoes before it hits your mouth. So instead of a... More

Decor here is classic and elegant. We went for the prix fixe menu (Table D'hôte) and it was amazing. Excellent food and service. Worth the money.

High end dining. All of my family members found something to their liking. I loved the lake trout - done to perfection. Only thing to improve upon is to ensure that the food servers know where to deliver the food, and who has what plate. This should be standard practice for the prices charged. Otherwise, perfect.

The view is amazing while sitting in the warm beautifully decorated hotel. Definitely an amazing experience of not stop high end quality and style, but in no way pretentious.
