The views here are breath taking. Service was attentive but not overbearing. It a perfect way to warm up after walking around the lake.

The food, drinks & service were impeccable. On both of the nights we stayed at the hotel, we really enjoyed having a drink and a small bite to eat here before going to dinner.

Staying at the hotel but looking for a 'regular' meal. The menu is the same for lunch and dinner. The servers were moderately attentive and willing to answer any questions we had. Supper was disappointing with a bowl of pre-cut frozen fries ($14) and a (half size) beef short rib sandwich not worth the $24. Lunch helped the restaurant redeem... More

Ate here while staying at the hotel. The restaurant has a wonderful view of Lake Louise. The food was of high quality & good sized meals. I enjoyed my lobster croissant. Service was to a high standard. Restaurent was busy you can't make a booking but we rang 30mins early to organise a table for 6 which they were happy... More

We were staying at the hotel and arrived too late to venture out. It was a Monday evening in the off season, but the hotel was quite full with a large convention of church folks. A couple of the restaurants were not available as a result. This seemed like the best option for what we were looking for. Visually it... More

We had a relatively light and early dinner. The quality of a simple meal impressed as did the attentive staff. Although dark by the time we settled down to eat we know the view from the window to be amazing.

We dined here for a special birthday high tea. Had window seats. It was awesome. Server was a delight. It doesn't look like a lot of food but both me and my husband were almost hurting after. Take your time, try more than 1 tea, and soak it up!!

We were guests at the Chateau Lake Louise and had priority seating by the windows. What a magnificent via of the lake. The review got a 4 instead of the 5 because neither of us cared for out flatbread pizza. We each ordered the soup, which was delicious and shared the Canadian flatbread. Neither of us cared for it.

We had a late lunch here after a long walk around the lake. Perfect way to finish this walk. We had the two different flat bread appetizers and they were both very delicious. Highly recommended. Not cheap but worth it.
