I am a vegetarian and my husband is not. We have eaten at many Fairmont restaurants around Canada and the US and this is the best restaurant within the Fairmont hotels and a fabulous restaurant in general. I had acorn squash fritters that were served over a watercress salad with nuts, some kind of berry, and a nice dressing. I... More

This was one of our best dining experiences during our travels through Canada. They know about fine dining and how to deliver it! The food and wine menu is extensive... we were particularly impressed with the Italian Brunello's offered by the glass. The scallops for starters were divine and cooked perfectly - not easy to master. The lobster and lamb... More

We ate here on Christmas Day and the meal was very good. It is the most formal of the Chateau's several restaurants but not overpoweringly so. It was a good excuse to dress up a bit more though more casual dress would have been fine. Certainly not a cheap option but reasonable value for the quality of the meal

We liked this restaurant but actually preferred the Lakeview lounge. There was nothing wrong with the food but it did not sparkle. The staff glided around most efficiently. Very good wine list.

We went to the Fairview Dining Room as we wanted a fine dining experience on our last evening at the Chateau. The venue is lovely and the staff were fine. However we felt the menu was a bit lacking.
