While staying at the Chateau we expected to pay a premium price for a fine dining experience. We made reservations 2 days in advance requesting a window view. When we were seated our table was on an upper level and although we could see the lake it was over the top of other diners and... read more

Head to the Walliser Stube instead. It is also insultingly overpriced, but at least it's a unique and entertaining dining experience. The Fairview Dining Room is just another fussy, overly-formal venue that doesn't go with traveling. After a day of sightseeing and hiking in lake Louse, you just don't feel like putting on a coat and tie and dealing with... More

Great service. Delicious food. Good ambience. The waiters were very friendly and willing to please. The tables were beautifully set and the American cuisine was fairly typical. My steak was soft and well cooked.

Six at the table and most ate well. Wide variety of appetizers, mains... no desserts. Three steaks were ordered. One rare and two medium-rare. The rare arrived much better done than the medium-rare. They wished to replace the rare steak but it would arrive when everyone else would have eaten. They credited the steak but no formal apology. (A manager... More

The Fairview Dining room has lovely views of Lake Louise. We found the meals really tasty, however they forgot one of the side dishes. When we mentioned it, they did bring its out fairly quickly. The waiter didn't know too much about wine and I was pleased I didn't take his recommendation because when I purchased a glass of it,... More

This place is projected as a fine dining restaurant at the Fairmont. It seems to be very popular and a reservation is certainly recommended especially if you want the tables with a lake view. The sea food was absolutely fresh, The scallops were sweet and tender and the sable fish was delicious. I was happy with the food here. Service... More

Despite a recent makeover the decor was cold and unwelcoming. The food was average for the price you pay and very slow service

The restaurant is not as grand as I expected it to be for a hotel of its class. It was touted to be a fine dining place and looked a bit tired and rundown. It is good if you can get a table by the edge of the window but can still get a view of the lake from other... More
