We were in Lake Louise for the Ice Magic Festival and had heard very good things about this restaurant, so decided to try it out in celebration of my husband's birthday. We were expecting to be wowed.
This review covers the meal only - the atmosphere was great and our waiter was fabulous.
We ordered the appetizer specials - mine was "cream of assorted mushroom soup" my husband's a pate. Large serving and very tasty. For our main course we ordered the Chateaubriand for two. The beef was cooked to perfection and the truffle sauce was good. The bernaise sauce was a disappointment - thick and congealed like it had been sitting out for an extensive period of time. The assorted vegetables that accompanied the beef were grossly overcooked (bordering on mush) and essentially tasteless.
For dessert we ordered the sampler (5 different desserts - taster portions) which were good, but again none of them wowed us.
The wine list was extensive, and expensive - nothing on the list for less than $100 per bottle (and those were hard to find)
For the $300 it was a disppointment. We have enjoyed better meals elsewhere for half the price.
