The Lakeview Lounge is a beautiful spot in the hotel. Many tables by the window to allow for gazing out at the mountains, and also open to the main hallway through the hotel. The seating is a mix of chairs and stylish couches, and is all very comfortable. We ate about 3 dinners here during our recent visit, and the... More

We had a great window view table for two. We shared an order of nachos, and thought we would order more if needed. It was not. The nachos were very filling. The staff were really friendly. And the price, for that service and that view, was just fine.

We ate here 3 times over our one week stay at Lake Louise. Everything was good - burgers, club sandwich, spinach and artichoke dip, salmon with warm potato salad, etc.

Having lunch at this restaurant is like having lunch in paradise on earth. Food was delicious, great service, and a million-dollar view. It took a long time to eat because we just enjoyed the view and sunshine. You have to be there to experience it yourself. Words can't describe enough of this place. It's unreal!

I found the staff at the Lakeview Lounge to be very welcoming to me and my family, even though we were not guests at the hotel. Sasha was professional, polite and prompt in her service as she advised that guests have a priority; however, my family were seated within minutes. It was an excellent pleasure dining at this lounge overlooking... More

Extremely disappointing experience yesterday. Drove to Lake Louise Fairmont Hotel to take in some skating and an enjoyable afternoon. Tried to sit down for a nice lunch and was turned away because we were not a guest of the Hotel. My hubbie and I are President level members of Fairmont Hotels.
