“Worst place to eat in Jasper”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

While it has a very nice atmosphere, the service is inexcusable. The food and drinks are over priced, and have no concept for allergies and other dietary needs. It should be noted that the emerald lounge is the problem child, the other restaurants in the lodge are fabulous.

“JPL at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I was delighted with the meal we had in this Emerald lounge. We had squash soup and a brie cheese accompanied by a variety of crackers and bread. Everything was delicious and well presented. The espresso coffee was pretty average and expensive. They could check out Da Capo cafe in Edmonton for a great cup of espresso.
As always, the service was great and the view spectacular.

Great service over an extended happy hour with appetizers. Staff made us feel welcomed and appreciated and delivered the fairmont experience. Price + service + quality = fairmont

“Weekend in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We spent the weekend at Jasper Park Lodge this weekend and dined at the Emerald Lounge several times.... the ambiance was outstanding along with an excellent view of the outdoors with snow covered mountains and snow covered lake.... The servers were attentive and the service was outstanding... The food was excellent.. in particular the maple-soy salmon...The food was a little pricey but not all out of line with restaraunts like Earls or the Keg... Overall a great dining experience with a spectacular view.....

“Overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Ordered a 10 oz rib eye steak which was pricey at $36. I've had a $13 steak sandwich that was better quality than this piece. It was tough, chewy and there is no way it was 10 oz. Maybe 6 if you were lucky. Out of all the dining experiences in Jasper this was by far the most disappointing and the most expensive. When we had asked the hotel staff what food they served they seemed to want to give us menus for other places in town and were offering other recommendations. Obviously we should have taken this as a hint even they think their food is disgusting crap. The side was two pathetic little baby carrots and a little pile of nasty mashed potatoes and some very ugly fried mushrooms. The presentation was horrible they put the meat on top of everything else and then the red win jus was a big pool on the bottom of the plate making the sides one big mess almost like a soup.
