First time here for a birthday celebration and unfortunately we were left disappointed. The prime rib steak had little to no flavour with no seasoning at all, polenta in another dish wasn’t cooked enough, duck confit was too dry. The service however was excellent but...due to the poor food members of the group were still hungry.More

Dinner and expedience in the Dome was fine.. but when I went to pay for the bill, I was shocked to see it was double what I had expected…. Our server then informed me there was a dome fee of $250 for parties under 4....I have a confirmation from the restaurant that states, party of 2. Total $250…. No where on my reservation does it say anything about a dome fee… if I had know this, I could have invited 2 more people. False advertising. I didn’t make a scene because it was my daughter’s birthday. So unsatisfied with this….More

Always a must visit while in Lake Louise. We were very happy to get a table at one of the grand windows overlooking the lake with a breathtaking view. Service is always top notch and accommodating as they created craft beverages that were not on...menu. We had planned to split a charcuterie board between 4 but we’re to full to order anymore this time. Make time to dine here when staying or visiting Lake Louise.More
