“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2014 NEW

The staff were friendly and great with suggestions for us as we wanted to share meals. The food is excellent quality and not bad price either But of course the view is just brilliant, regardless of the weather...

“The view makes it all worthwhile!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014

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 was decent. We had a great time having lunch and admiring the scenery of the Lake. Totally romantic. My husband set up the time lapse on his phone to take the scenery outside, at the end of the lunch, we had a wonderful video of the lake changing it's view. Totally awesome!

“Wintery view and horse sleigh s”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014

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 Fairmont hotel to the 6 Glacier plains to get your appetite up. Snow shoes make it easy but try it tough with just hiking boots. Short cut with horse sleigh ride but walking wwith friends and family was closer.

“Nice... but pricey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2014

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 Atmosphere is Fabulous ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2014

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 times. Wish they would have kept the lifestyle menu but I still am able to find something to nibble on while relaxing.
