“Great Food, Great View, but not Cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I can't say enough good things about the view, the service or the food at the Fairview Dining Room. While everything is expensive in Lake Louise, the prices here are a bit over-the-top. Worth it for a splurge now and then, but you don't want to be eating here every day!

“Our anniversary dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We brought our champagne the hotel had gifted us with, and they were amenable to opening it for us in the dining room. The food was wonderful, and the waitress went out of her way to bring us wild salmon, which wasn't on the menu. It was a lovely evening because of such caring service.

“Amazing views, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The views from the Fairview Dining room are truly exceptional and happily the food matches the view. Although the prices make this a special occasion venue, it's well worth the splurge. Our server, Jordan, proved himself to be not only a great waiter, but a very good sport as well, as our group of 3 were definitely enjoying ourselves.

“Lovely view and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The view of the lake and snow capped mountains from the window seat was worth the price of the meal. I was expecting a more expensive bill for this upmarket/tourist hotel, but was pleasantly surprised at about $130CAD for 2 starter drinks, 2 mains, 1 shared dessert and 2 glasses of wine. My butter chicken with roti was delicious although this is not an Asian style restaurant.
We went for lunch. My suggestion is to arrive early to get a window seat. The service and quality of food could not be faulted. This is a great place to have a tasty long lunch and just relax soaking in the view.

“Fairview Dining Room has great view, Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had a very nice dinner here - I had the filet tenderloin and she had duck. We also had three appetizers - Good value for a nice dining experience. Service was friendly, view of the lake was supreme.
