We had to wait a bit, even with reservations to get the table of our choice. It was worth the wait to be at the window looking out at lovely Lake Louise. Food was great and service was excellent.

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.
