Happiness at Lakeview Lounge

On June 23, 2015, my sister-in-law joined my wife and I for lunch at the Lakeview Lounge in the Chateau Lake Louise. We were quickly seated at an interior table, but still with a great view of the lake and glacier through a large window. We shared two entrees and two desserts between the three of... read more

You cannot reserve tables as they are on a first come, first served basis, but priority is given to hotel guests. We ate here twice as the food was so good on the first night, but did have an issue with cold food and an attitude problem from our waiter on the second

Great lounge, minor geographical discrepancy on their Islay Malts but I enjoyed it. You can enjoy a drink before dinner or after dinner.

We had a late dinner here one evening when we were not too hungry. The view over the lake is amazing, as are the furnishings of the lounge. We had a tasty if not amazing meal and left very happy.

A great place to unwind and stare at the beauty of the lake. Enjoyed a bottle of wine on the patio with my daughters. Our waiter - Chris - was a lot of fun!

Lakeview lounge has perfect location on Lake Louise. We ordered Indian food on their menu. It was a mistake. Nan was nothing but toasted Pita bread. Curries were quite below average. I suggest Fairmont Lake Lounge should stop serving Indian food if they can't have the quality. Our soup arrived 15 minutes after the main course was served. Server was... More

Too early for dinner, too late for lunch, yet very much in need of a pause in the day's activities. The suggestion was made to stop at the Lakeview Lounge for drinks and shareable tapas. The drinks, the cheese board, the spinach dip, all were truly outstanding as was the service. A bit pricey but well worth it, an exceptional... More

Beef korma was good considering this was not an Indian restaurant. Naan was terrible...looks like it was toasted. Service was ok. They had comfortable seats
