Fabulous scallops and duck, very efficient service. Ambience not great - how about some candles, or tablecloths, or anything to soften the atmosphere? But 10/10 for the food.

Excellent service and vegan accommodating chef! Wine pairing was well done and worth it. Book after 7:30 to avoid the early crowd for a more intimate, slower pace.

Typically Fairmont Hotels are pretty much unbeatable in terms of the professionalism of servers and other personnel. When we recently attended, the host graciously honored our request for a window table and was extremely courteous and helpful; however our server on this occasion was obviously overextended or perhaps needs a change or holiday. The sommelier was late and not particularly... More

This restaurant is always the highlight of our many years of dining experiences at the Chateau. It is very elegant and good for a special night out. It is nice to dress up a little for a leisurely dinner. This is not for an eat and run evening. The views are terrific, even in the evening when the grounds are... More

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
