In 2013, our wine list received a gold medal at the Vancouver International Wine Festival.

Stayed at Emerald Lake Lodge and, quite frankly, you are a captive audience. There really isn't too much else around even if you leave the property, so make the best of it. We had breakfast in the Mount Burgess Dining Room twice during our stay, and had dinner in the Kicking Horse Lounge just across the lobby one night (same dinner menu in lounge, just no reservations needed). The food was good, but pricey, and the service was sporadic It seems like they hire a lot of young people from around the world to staff the busy summer season, and food service & waiting tables may be a new experience for them.

We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners in the Dining room and the food was top notch. No complaints and the selection and technique used to prepare the food was perfect.

This had great food with a variety of choices including for vegetarians. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, I especially liked the Orange and Olive cake I had for desert.

The wine was all very good but I would say it is all quite expensive.
