We stayed at the hotel so we stopped in here for a drink. The drinks were great but the service was horrible. It took forever to a waiter to get to us.

The food at this restaurant was very good and the service was excellent. The view of the lake is fantastic. The overall hotel is very busy with tourists walking through, but the restaurant gave priority to hotel guests.

We ordered one of the burgers with the parmesan truffle fries, and the dal with naan dish. Both were delicious! Because we were kept waiting some time for our meals, we were offered a free dessert. We happily accepted, and ordered the chocolate cake - also very good. Our server was very friendly and attentive :)

We had a cocktail while sitting outside at this lounge, magnificent views of Lake Louise and good service. We would have gone back again to try the food but the lake was too jam packed with tourists.

75% empty and not taking not residents at 8pm. Given the prices I am not surprised it was 75% empty but given the location they can charge what they want.

Because of the mediocre food we had in the fine dining restaurants, we decided to just eat in the lounge for our last night. It was just fine, and certainly more reasonable.

I'll give the Fairmont credit as a brand...they know how to do real estate. But food? Forget it. This was just plain bad. Actually it was embarrassing. I ordered the ravioli and was hungry so I asked to "add chicken". The chicken that came out was the same "chicken" on my wife's chicken ciabatta sandwich. It actually wasn't real chicken,... More
