Excellent lunchtime experience

My husband and I had a very nice meal overlooking Lake Louise. Firstly the staff were attentive and helpful. Mariska changed our tables when we said we preferred a different view. Our waiter Eric, couldn't have been more attentive,even finding a cushion for my husbands painful back. The food was... read more

I find the food very good but not exceptional. I can have the same great tasting food for a lesser price in Lake Louise or Banff. I do think I am paying for the experience of eating inside the equally pricey chateau (since I am not staying in the hotel) and of course, the magnificent view of the lake. I... More

Lovely view and good food. However, I would have preferred the Dining Room, but had not made reservations ahead. Advice: always book dinner reservations for these popular restaurants, long before you ever leave home.

The location was perfect. The decor, perfect. The barkeep, perfect. That said, there were a couple of things that didn't sit well by me. As this is a high-end establishment, I therefore feel the need to rate this experience average. First was the limited availability for seating for non-guests of the hotel. So we were offered seating in the hot... More

although the hotel is absolutely wonderful, our dining experience was truly bizarre. the staff are very friendly, and working very hard, and are genuinely busy, but it seems like they aren't well trained for basic things like, having cutlery before the food arrives, providing small plates for bread, refilling water, removing used plates when the next dish arrives... just small...

We ate here twice while staying at the Chateau. We had very good ravioli and spinach and goat cheese salad. You look out on Lake Louise and the mountains and glaciers. It was spectacular. Our waitress the 2nd time was distracted and not very good. However, our first waiter was extremely good, informed, and helpful. Like everything at the Chateau... More

Very good food, excellent service once you are actually seated. The annoying part was the hostess acts like a bouncer at a club, only letting some in as they see fit. Since we were hotel guests, after awhile this got on our nerves. As we looked into the lounge and saw numerous open tables, it bothered us to be asked... More

A busy hotspot probably due to non staying visitors. The Burgers and Sandwiches were tasty. Parmesan truffle fries yummy. The service was very good.

We enjoyed a 9pm dinner at the bar As the restaurant was quite busy and there were no tables available. The female bartender was very friendly and chatted with us quite a bit which we enjoyed. Beautiful view. The burger and Mac 'n Cheese were great comfort food choices at the end of a long active day!
