There's no view of Lake Louise but the mountain views are gorgeous. Antipasti buffet reminded us of a traditional trattoria. Don't miss either the osso buco or the braised beef short ribs

This was the pick of the restaurants at the Fairmont Lake Louise for us. Excellent Italian food, in a lovely environment and with staff who were friendly and helpful. The cracked pepper grinders are a site to behold, being larger than the people serving, but made for part of the fun of this place.

We had heard good reviews and in previous travel to the area we were unable to secure reservations. I made reservations 6 days in advance, requesting 7:30 for 4 people. Only 8:00 was available which we accepted. The restaurant was less than half full when we arrived. Our server was prompt to take our order. We had an appetizer of... More

We do recommend making reservations in as far advance as possible, sometimes up to 3 weeks prior to arrival so you have a better chance at the dining time you want during peak periods. We are glad that the service was up to standard and your order... More

I was really excited for an Italian night, and this was good, but not great (especially for the money). We enjoyed the atmosphere and service and the pizza was excellent. The wine was also a nice surprise (good Chianti for a good price).

I was out for dinner with friends after a beautiful hike up to lake Agnes tea house ( amazing hike, do it, get the tea biscuits ). After waiting significant amount of time for our waitress to acknowledge our table, it then took another 5-10 minutes to get water and order. Our food once we order came quickly , but... More

Very large expansive restaurant. Nice view of the mountain and since it stays light so late it was really nice to look out the window. The margarita pizza was very doughy and the Cesar salad was soggy. That was sort of the theme of the food. It's okay. Not better or worse. However, the waitress was friendly and adorable.

We had dinner one night at Lago at the hotel which is an Italian restaurant. We found the appetizers and entrees to be high priced for the quality we got.

We stayed at the Chateau Lake Louise during our tour of the Rockies and after a tiring day of hiking and exploring we were happy to take the concierge's advice and eat in.
