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. My husband really wanted a salad choice for a starter and there was no salad on the a la carte menu.... More

Excellent food, a bit pricy. The view of Lake Louise is fantastic! When the restaurant is busy (which is most of the time) only guests registered at the hotel are permitted to make reservations. But you can eat in the bar (same menu) and still enjoy the view.

Fairview is a top restaurant in an iconic Hotel. The view is amazing but unfortunately the food is just very good without any of those special touches that you hope for but often never find in this sort of establishment. I guess they have to play it safe. The service generally was excellent although the perfunctory stop by from the... More

The main dining room at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise offers superior dining and wonderful views of the Lake. Staff is very attentive and the food superb. Make reservations as this restaurant is very popular.

We made reservations though the concierge. I ordered the tenderloin. It was done nicely as ordered with a very nice sauce. My girl had the salmon topped with mussels. Both were very good. Our service was great. The service in general, is so good, this time of year around Banff I can't imagine it would lack even during high season.

Our service was excellent. Our waiter bent over backwards to help us with dinner choices and make our evening a wonderful event. He was courteous, polite and very interesting as he had a masters in geology. A fine young man.
