Expensive 100% however the food was great, I had the best burger in 50 years here. The rest of the gang also enjoyed their meal.

This restaurant is located at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It’s laid back and casual. My husband’s Alberta steak was delicious, and my chicken was also a thumbs up. Service was excellent, and prices were reasonable. The restaurant will be closed while going through major renovations. We were guests of the hotel, and were also very pleased with our stay.

We dined twice at the bar restaurant of this grand hotel, and on both occasions expected to fare better. Since the place gives preference to hotel guests (makes sense) on first night we have waited for about 45 minutes before being alerted by the electronic device that there was a table for the four us. By that time the ribs... More

The hosted, bit of an attitude, but our waiter was good and efficient. The food was nothing out of the ordinary but okay. We had one drink each an appetizer a main course and one single dessert, cost 171.00. And the salon was full with customers and noisy.

Be prepared to wait for a table so I would get your name on the list first, then tour the hotel. Food was good- had the prime rib, big enough to share between 2 people.

We had a week's stay at the Fairmont and our favorite dinner spot was the Glacier Saloon! Prices are reasonable and we thought the food was great! Service was also really good and friendly.

We ate here for the last night of our stay as our children fancied the food on the menu. It was extremely dark inside and we could have been eating anywhere as there was no view from where we sat. The food was average, but we were served reasonably quickly and the service was very good and friendly. I think... More
