We just needed a light late lunch as we had reservations at the Fairview later that evening. We shared open sandwich of smoked salmon and the hibiscus lemon tart...both light and delicious. We also were close to the window so had a lovely view of the lake. And reasonably priced for a 5 star hotel.

Such a view of the lake. An eclectic lounge. Great food. Menu availability changes at 5:00. Ate there all three nights of our stay.

I had salmon tapas that were good with a salad and dessert. My husband had duck egg rolls and a dessert. I had a glass of wine and he had a beer. The bill was $100.00. The main problem with any restaurant in this hotel was how highly priced it was. If a restaurant is highly priced I expect impeccable... More

It was summer so too hot to sit next to a window but the view was stunning just the same. Good service and food plus a good wine list

Lunch on the outdoor terrace at the Lakeview lounge was a treat. With Lake Louise and the Victoria Glacier as the backdrop, the views are stunning. The food was good (try the sliders) and the service acceptable given the crowd on Sunday afternoon. A little pricey, but you are paying the view.

Four of us had lunch on the patio, and although it was a bit cool, we had the most breathtaking views around of Lake Louise. The cocktails, food and service were all excellent, but they do come at a high price. But if the sun is out on the lake, I think it's worth the splurge.

Specifically came here to eat lunch, several options available but chose this one based on menu options. Really was quite disappointed in food quality and expected much more. Had the "vegetable" soup, it turned out to be a pureed vegetable but extremely thin more like a broth just ok. Manager asked if everything was ok and told her about soup... More

The place for a laid-back bite and drink with your partner or with family in front of a fantastic view. Superb quick, efficient service from bartender and waiters. Can get noisy due it being located right off the main lobby and adjacent to shopping area within the hotel.
