Some of us walked over here to have a small bite to eat in the Lakeview Lounge. Prices were in the $15 to $20 range for open face smoked salmon sandwiches, panko crusted crab and tuna rolls, spring rolls, etc. All were quite good. Some of us ordered the pear pudding with sticky toffee sauce - again quite good but... More

We stayed at the Chateau for three days in December and enjoyed the lounge on several occasions. While it is understandable that this is the busy season, it is still unacceptable to have to wait 15 minutes for a server after being seated. Food, drinks and for the most part, service were all really good... too bad we can't say... More

We had waited a long time to be able to fit this into our schedule. We were the 4th in line for a table, got one by the window, great view. We ordered special hot chocolates, they were cold! We asked if the soup had wheat and were told 'no', it came with croutons in it and it had been... More

The food at the Chateau Lake Louise is exquisite. I had the spinach salad with balsamic and mustard vinaigrette. The salad was beautifully complemented together, then I got to the poached pear on the plate. WOW! What an explosion of deliciousness. So so so good.

We visited Lake Louise many times before, but this time we decided to get something for dinner even as non-guests. With previous very pleasured experience from Fairmont restaurants in Banff, we expected same quality of food and service. Food: Unfortunatelly even the selection was great, the food quality was only average (especially in that price range). They have nice seasonal... More

My husband and I stopped by the hotel and was totally captured by the wonderful view of Lake Louise outside. We decided to stop and had lunch at the lounge. The waitress was very nice to put us right by the window seat even though we didn't make a reservation. Our view was spectacular! The drinks was great, the food... More

We had $10 hot chocolates, Bison Sandwiches for $20 and French onion soup for $12. The view from the lounge was seriously wintery white wonderful. Food was good considering we were frozen miles from anywhere. Must try the bison sandwich if you are new to Canada. Don't forget the snow tires. Also try the 12 km return walj from the... More

Good service. Nice to sit and just look outside at the stunning scenery. Drinks were pricey. For 3 drinks and the tip it was $44.

The food always tastes better with the fabulous atmosphere. How can you go wrong with the view of Lake Louise? In the summer there are flowers galore. In the winter there is the ice castle and sleigh rides to view. However, the food is up to the Fairmont's caliber. The wait staff is always attentive even during those completely crazy... More
