Our family of four returned to this restaurant on our last night of our stay at the Chateau - mostly because our daughter had enjoyed it so much last year. I guess this time our expectations were a bit too high. First off - oyster bisque is not really something kids want to dig into - so while it was "compliments of the chef" they were not interested.

My daughter found her pasta sauce to be very watery and while I know it was off the kids menu, it was not very good. My husband and I ordered the three course meal with wine paring - which was fine, however, I felt we were a bit rushed between our courses, so much so that you had to rush to fnish the wine given before digging into the next course.

Also, my husband ordered the lamb and I had to share some of my tenderloin meal with him as his plate was pretty sparse.

We may reconsider dining here during future visits to the hotel.

Incredibly juicy and tender patty inside the buns with other stuff inside will greet you at the Fairview Dining. Comparing to other hotels, they provide reasonable price to you. My recommendation is right at you. You'll never forget a wonderful memory at the atmosphere near one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.

Everything about this place was absolutely amazing. I proposed to my girlfriend and we came here for dinner that evening, and we were blown away. The service was impeccable. They congratulated us addressed us by name and explained the menu and each dish very well. The food was delectable. It truly was an art for this chef. Everything down to the plating was magnificent. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the lake louise area.
