Great views. Nice place for a drink and snack. Limited dinner menu. Try the butter chicken, rice and naan for lunch.

Service was excellent and food was very good. Cannot beat that view of the lake and glacier from our window seat.

Lovely setting for a light meal or drinks. Sangria was to die for. We would have loved a table by the window to admire the view but those were taken up by people on their phones or computers!

They serve sandwiches and salads for lunch, but evening is tapas only. We decided that was ok as we had a late lunch. The Bison sliders were excellent, but crab and salmon role was inedible. They did remove it from out bill promptly. Service was average at best, as the waitress had too many tables.

Food was excellent. Bison Rueben. If it is a sunny day the patio can get very warm. Great service. Lines will form but be patient.

The Chateau Lake Louise may be a world class hotel, but the food in the Lounge is not. The Corned Bison Brisket (with gouda) sandwich tasted OK but was salty, overdone on the bottom, and small. The accompanying salad was small and uninspired. All of this for $24. The Lemon Tart ($13), when it finally arrived, was OK but simply... More

The first time we tried to eat here, we had a 20 minute wait. Once seated, we had no service for another 10 minutes and decided to leave and go to the deli. The second try, we had lunch at 11:30 am and just beat the crowd. The views from our table by the bar was fantastic and the food... More

The view of the lake and the glacier from the restaurant were beyond compare, absolutely stunning. but the food and service were not up to Fairmont standards. Obviously, the prices were high.

The bar area is wonderful, the staff is attentive and the food is good. We order a few appetizers and cocktails and had a light dinner in the bar area while watching the sun set. Great place to have a cocktail at night, or a light bite, and watch the lake.

Too noisy, on arriving at a hotel after travelling it is nice to be able to sit and have a quiet coffee with some kind of feeling of luxury when you have paid for it.
