Had lunch in the bar, it was a great experience. Food was very good and came quickly. We ordered drinks and they were good as well. There is lots of history in the bar, it used to have a carosel that would go round. It has great ambiance and I think I sawa a wood oven for pizza. I would go back. Food price is on par for the neighbourhoood.

The hotel is beautiful and historical. The lunch was fine but not fabulous. The cocktails were crazy overpriced! I guess you are paying for the real estate here. $22 for a martini and $18 for a very large filling lunch. Service was good.

Thank Beverly W

Dear Beverly, thank you for your feedback. We're glad that you come in to dine with us and that you got to try one of our extra-large special martinis. We do serve regular-sized martinis and would've been happy to accommodate you with an off-menu order. Your feedback is much appreciated and we'll use it for the future when we make improvements. Thank you again for taking the time to connect with us. We hope to host you again soon!

Amazing restaurant bar at the Fairmont hotel. Perfect place to relax after a busy day the Convention center.
We tried yesterday night to get a drink but was very busy around 8 pm.
Great ambiance,drinks and cocktails and food.
Very classy decoration.

Hadn't been here in a couple of years and needed a good spot around 430pm for some drinks. This was perfect. Great atmosphere and a wine list with good choices. A bottle of Merry Edwards Pinot Noir hit the spot for the 3 of us. Excellent service.

Recently visited for the birth of a grandchild and although we stayed at the Mandarin, we visited the Long Bar on the recommendation of my son, who works at the Fairmont in Scottsdale AZ and bartends there. We struck up a conversation with Phil, who did such a fantastic job and was so talented and cordial, and each time we were in the area we stopped in just to see if he was working....and tried different cocktails each time! He did a smoke infused whiskey that was off the chart and the bar vibe is great....and it is....a VERY long bar....my son was in heaven! Great job to all....
