We hit up this lounge twice suring our stay. Once when we first arrived for a quick drink and again after dinner. The second time, we opted to sit at the bar where the tended named Marty was the perfect amount of engaging and professional. You could tell that he really enjoyed his work and he went above and beyond... More

We had lunch here two days while exploring the area. Lunch was superb both days, and you can't beat the view.

The outside seating is gorgeous, overlooking the lake! The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. They offered gas heating and blankets if you were chilly, but during the day it was glorious! Highly recommended! You must make reservations if you do not want to wait, especially for outdoor seating.

Fantastic view. Food pretty good but not fantastic. Excellent service by Nicole. We had lunch and had to wait a while for a table. If they take reservations, you should make one.

Had dinner one night while staying at the Fairmont. They gave us a window table which was awesome. Best onion soup we have had, Caesar salad was great. Menu had a lot to choose. From sandwiches to steaks and seafood. Service was great!

Large windows with beautiful views of mountains and the lake. Lunch here was tasty and worth the money spent for the views and the warmth.

We had a drink at the Lakeview Lounge while waiting for our room to be ready. The lounge has a great view of the lake and of the glacier. The service was excellent and the wine list was extensive.

We planned to visit the famous and iconic Chateau Fairmont at Lake Louise. A month before our visit, we looked at their website and we decided to have dinner in the Lakeview Lounge.

At the Chateau, there are four restaurants and Lakeview Lounge is one that needs no booking. The waiters are friendly and look after a small number of tables, so you get very good service. Our meals were wonderfully cooked and well presented. The whole evening was topped with great views over the lake towards the mountains.
