The Chateau and the Lakeview Lounge are fantastic. We had amazing cocktails, excellent service and a fantastic meal. Not to be missed.

My husband and I had to meals here during our stay to the Fairmont. The views are breathtaking overlooking Lake Louise. We ordered the soups of the day, burgers and crab cakes. Everything was amazing. We didn't have anything we didn't like. The servers are all very nice and attentive. We highly recommend this place. It is first come first... More

This is a nice lounge in a top hotel with a gorgeous view. They offer the restaurant menu here too. The food and drink are as expensive as you'd imagine for the setting. But there is a wide variety, including soup and appetizers. They offer craft beers too. They gave us a plate of small snacks with our drinks. Definitely... More

We enjoyed one dinner here. The menu is pricey, the food we ordered was enjoyable, but by far the best feature is the lake view. There are several restaurants in the hotel, and all are expensive. There are a couple casual small restaurants good for breakfast nearby, otherwise you have to go to Banff.

Our server, Kaitlynn, made our lunch experience fabulous, and fun. We had a group of six, adults and children, and she was friendly and attentive. The food was great (I had the lobster croissant, and my daughter had the club sandwich). The prices are a bit high, but all of the prices, at the Chateau, I feel are padded, simply... More

Wow. What a view, worth an effort to make time from your outdoor activities and break for lunch. Menu is diverse and imaginative. Ingredients are fresh and flavor are intense. Great beers on tap and cocktails are well prepared. Overall, in my opinion this is the best place to eat and drink at the Chateau.

Stunning views of lake & mountains. Expensive, scruffy, outdated. For the hype & glowing write ups this was very disappointing.
