This is the supposedly premiere dining experience when visiting Lake Louise, and I would struggle to criticize any of it. In my opinion, the Walliser Stube is a slightly better option, but this is, in my estimation, a "can't lose" situation. The bartender knew what he was doing, and that might be of great importance to you if you like... More

This is an upscale restaurant. It has gorgeous views of Lake Louise. This area is known for its beef, so I would suggest getting the tenderloin. Everything was delicious, and the service was extremely attentive. Very artistic presentation of all the dishes.

We were here to explore the frozen lake, but decided to have lunch at the Fairmont before starting our trek. We had a table with a fantastic view of the lake and mountains. Our waiter was so friendly and charming - very polite and fun to talk to. Our meal was wonderful - I had a pasta and crab special... More

Lovely dining room. Had Chef's Menu with paired wine. Pricey but felt like we had an experience not just food.

The dining room itself is beautiful and has great views of Lake Louise. Wait staff were very attentive and friendly. However, the service was exceedingly slow. The menu had fish, beef and chicken options as well as a kids menu. the prices were really quite high for the food we ended up getting. The food was good, but I was... More

On a recent trip to the Banff area, my husband and I decided to splurge on afternoon tea at the Fairmont. We made reservations for a Monday afternoon and arrived in the middle of a huge storm where the temperature dropped dramatically. This didn't put a damper on our experience, however, as the views of Lake Louise from the dining... More

Dear hfritzinger, Thank you for taking the time to review the Fairview and thank you for the wonderful comments on your afternoon tea experience. Our resort dress is resort casual this is why you saw some guests in hiking gear. It is difficult for some to pack nicer clothes when they are here for adventure and the great outdoors or... More

I got mixed reviews for Dinner, but the breakfast buffet was excellent. Great choices and an omelet station. Get here early to get a seat with a view. Everything about Lake Louise is about the view. Also the seats are somewhat too low for the table height, but this is not a big detail.

Dear bsorge, Thank you for your review on the Fairview breakfast buffet. Our buffet it quite extensive, you can have pretty much anything you would have hoped for for breakfast, including fresh omelets made in front of you! Lake Louise is definitely about the views but also about the experience you make it when visiting. Thank you again and we... More
