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

Great policies. As a hotel guest you can move around as you wish. Budget day travelers are required to order meals. That enables hotels guests to get seating even only for that afternoon tea.

We frequented the lounge a number of times as it had light fare and great views and of course beverages. We had hummus, a cheese plate and a number of appetizer like combos which were just enough without being overwhelming. The food was good but the highlight was sitting out on the patio soaking in the sunset and alpenglow with... More

The view was spectacular! Looking across a beautiful emerald lake surrounded by white caped mountains. We had Tapas that was very good. Great place to just sit with a glass of wine and look out the window.

Staff was so busy pleasing the wedding party that had stayed over, everyone else was basically ignored. I finally got up and got my own coffee
