Fairview Bar is the main dining room at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It probably has the most magnificent view of any dining room in Canada and one of the best in the world. We had the afternoon tea which is a really nice experience,...with a selection of tasty bites in the tea tradition. Breakfast here is also very good with traditional breakfast choices. We enjoyed a delicious dinner here with a perfectly cooked rib steak and their version of French onion soup which is much lighter than the traditional recipe. Excellent drinks list, which can be enjoyed while taking in the majestic view. Staff is very friendly and obliging. Service was faster than usual for hotel dining rooms. This hotel is very busy so better reserve so you don’t miss out.More

Every restaurant in the Fairmont offers an amazing view of the Lake and the mountains, and the Fairview Bar is probably the one offering the most delicious food, as well as some amazing cocktails and an extensive wine list, where you can find what you...are looking for. I would recommend for starters either the scallops or the onion soup, for the main course, I would recommend their rib-eye but please ask their chef daily feature which can also be an amazing option and definitely, if you are a cocktail lover, they do a mean old fashioned or negroni if you love those. If I had to pick only one restaurant in the Fairmont, it would be that one. And the service was amazing, as our waiter clearly loved his job and made us feel welcomed and at home the entire time.More

We only had a drink and shared a desert here but the service was top notch (Tess) and the cheesecake we shared was to die for. Would highly recommend the bar here for sure.

We returned tired form our long hike and was looking for a quick meal. When we approached the Maitre'd (Emily) she was very accommodating and made promises that was not kept and very forgetful to our wish not to sit outside in the patio. She...indicated that the wait for a table will be no longer than 45 mins but most likely 30 mins. When we received the text that our table was ready, we arrived within 2 mins, She appeared to be very fluster and asked if we would like a table outside. She left us with another Maitre'd and than attended to another couple that was on the waiting list after us.. We were not very happy that we were bumped and her demeanor had changed. However, David our server was exceptional and made our dining experience much better.More

Ate breakfast here twice, and although it may look expensive they offer very good portions and include fruit, which is usually extra. If you can grab a window seat it is worth the price.

45 min+ wait for essentially a fast food order. Fries lukewarm. Burgerpatty and bun combination roughly 12 cm. thick and couldn’t be compressed to bite. Ate the bottom of the bun and slightly warm patty with knife and fork. Top of bun basically useless, too...thick and firm. But 3x the price of any fast food joint.More

The finest dining place closest to the Lake Louise. Service is seamless, selection of cocktails and beers is great (we didn’t try wines this time). Plates are carefully combined and nicely presented. Kids were happy with burgers. Really loved the place!

Yes, you should. We could not get a table unless we were registered at the hotel. We ate at the bar and it was great; good service, good view of the lake, good food. Steak, seafood, pasta. High prices.
