The place is beautiful and the view is really nice, but when it comes to the food I must say I found it just average with a price that does not go accordingly. Overall the experience was nice and the service was excellent, but for 50 CAD per person I was looking for a remarkable dish and not for an... More

Great dinner, the tenderloin was so tender you almost didn't need a knife. Great recommendation from the waitress on the a la carte choices.

Warmly greeted, got a fantastic table with an amazing view of the lake. The food was delicious, would highly recommend the pan seared scallops. All the dishes we had were creatively prepared and presented. Service was readily available and yet not intrusive. The staff are well trained and execute flawlessly, that is not common. The place was empty on a... More

DDs 5&7 and I ate there after a day of skiing and we just wandered into the restaurant by accident not realizing that it was a five diamond. We were definitely under dressed for the occasion but the wonderful lady seated us anyways. The food was excellent and decently priced for the portions that you get. Our server, Jordan, was... More

We enjoyed dinner here 2 nights during our stay, the first night we ordered from the menu and had such a wonderful experience we asked about a chefs tasting the next night for a special birthday dinner. Chef John Lance and his team produced an incredible 7 course meal, all locally sourced. The sommelier Seamus paired each course perfectly and... More

There are lower cost options but if you travel all the way to LL, stay at the magnificent Fairmont - you just have to have a meal at the Dining Room - we chose afternoon tea (and didn't then need dinner) and it was just superb - sensational sandwiches, luscious cakes and unique tea - with great service (and yet...

- The waiting staff couldn't explain what was in the dishes. They just put the food down and walked away. - The amuse-bouche was a cold soup in a small glass. One of us only got a half glass, while mine was filled to the brim. Shouldn't the waitress notice the "fill-level" was different? - Seared foie gras was completely... More

Even though we were staying at the Post Hotel, we couldn't resist having the prix fixe dinner at the Fairview Dining Room of the Fairmont so we could enjoy another late afternoon-early evening view of Lake Louise. The food at the Fairview was quite good, especially the Quebec Foie Gras Duo appetizer. The venison was not as good as I... More
