Description: One of the most iconic lobby lounges in the Canadian Rockies, the Lakeview Lounge offers a charming and elegant setting to sip on a sophisticated cocktail or an illustrious wine. Sit back, relax and admire the spectacular, world-class views of Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier. The combination of architectural and natural beauty makes for an unforgettable lobby lounge experience in the heart of Banff National Park. Be sure to sample our signature cocktail; the Lakeview Cosmopolitan, that has been a local’s favourite for years. In addition to an extensive cocktail and wine selection, seasonally inspired lunch and dinner menus are available. During the summer months, soak up the fresh mountain air and surrounding beauty from one of the most scenic patios in the Canadian Rockies.

The view is the best thing about this place. - wow! You never get tired of it.

The service was excellent, the food was also excellent.

My only complaint, it does not open before 12.00 pm and so if you want to go in the morning say 10.30 am for a coffee and maybe a cake or something with a view - there is nowhere in the hotel to go as the Deli has no views....! weird!

This is our second year visiting Lake Louise, and eating at the Lakeview Lounge in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The food was excellent both times, the wait staff were great, and the view is fantastic! I loved sitting on a comfy couch and enjoying lunch. Can't afford to stay in the hotel itself, but the Lakeview Lounge, while a little pricey, was worth it! This year we added a desert to our late lunch - a chocolate lava cake with passion fruit sorbet - and it was so good I almost embarassed myself by licking the plate:) If you visit Lake Louise, take the time to eat in the Lakeview Lounge. It was a highlight of both trips!

Loved the food. I had the lakeview burger and the wife had the Reuben. But while the food was very good, the view of the lake was breathtaking!
