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.

Enjoy lunch on the patio with the warm sun and gentle breeze while savoring dishes prepared to perfection. While my husband enjoyed the Tuscan pasta, I had the Bison Reuben. Both were delicious. For dessert we sipped dessert coffees while enjoying the view of Lake Louise.

We are fortunate to live a couple of hours from Lake Louise. We try to visit several times a year and always plan to have lunch at the Lakeview Lounge in Chateau Lake Louise.
The lounge has been recently renovated. However, the old world charm has remained with the beautiful light fixture gracing the centre of the main lounge area. The magnificent view, through the beautiful oval window, is a delight. The space extends perpendicular from the main area across another row of windows facing the magnificent lake and glacier view.
The lunch menu provides an interesting choice for all appetites. Our favourite is the Lobster and Shrimp Croissant. It is simply delicious, served with a side salad or fries. Try the yam fries, they are among the best ever. The wine list is not extensive and pricy. On this trip we chose the Valpolicella. It was adequate for lunch. Our server was very attentive and professional. You will not be disappointed if you lunch here. Prices are moderate.

Worth stopping in for a drink or lunch, Can't beat the view. Food and service were both good. A little pricey - but where else can you find a view like this?

The lounge sits facing the lake and Victoria glacier. Good light meals menu for lunch / brunch. Excellent cocktail menu priced as expected for an iconic Fairmont hotel.

We had excellant service and secured a great table next to the enormous picture window next to the bar. Total bill for 2 cocktails and a salmon based share plate was $50.00 including tip.

We met the mascot Marcus the resident Labrador whilst waiting to validate our parking ticket, which was waived as a friendly and generous gesture by the concierge. Bravo.
