One of the best meals in the best setting we've ever had. Looking directly over the pristine waters of Lake Louise, a superb restaurant with friendly and attentive staff (happy to be inconvenienced for a few moments while you ooh and aah at the setting), a menu to please the fussiest diner and food that melts in your mouth.

We enjoyed our meals and desserts. Service was good and the lake view is stunning. It is very expensive but I would go back as it was good and it's the only restaurant there I believe with the lake view.

Simply put, it was not worth the money. The lamb as cold and overcooked, and the salmon was like sushi in the middle, when we asked for it to be well done. I liked the salad and that was about it.

The hotel is so beautiful but they need an interior designer to go in and get rid of the fake flowers and drab decor. The food was OK and the service was good. the view was fantastic

It you want to treat yourself to a very special dinner, this is the place. The view of Lake Louise is a beautiful backdrop for excellent food and service and a pretty good wine list.

This restaurant has a fabulous view of the vista at Lake Louise. Unfortunately it is not a Fine Dining calibre as portrayed. The menu is very limited and they did not offer an alternatives or specials. My husband's meal arrived cold , there is no excuse for that. The food was very average and nothing special. We received a half... More

We had a table for two overlooking the lake which was lovely. We splurged and enjoyed the prix fixe and it was really great food, lovely presentation, excellent service. The added touch of a little plate of chocolates with Happy Anniversary written on the plate was appreciated. It is a great place to dine for a special occasion.
