We ate breakfast at this restaurant during our stay. You can order breakfast off the menu (which we did) or eat from a buffet that includes coffee and juice. The food was very good. We ate in the lounge for lunch and dinner and enjoyed those meals as well.

It is a nice small restaurant in Emerald Lake Lodge. The food is very good. But they are usually booked. We stayed in the lodge twice, the 1st time we didn't make reservation before arrival, we couldn't get a seat that night, so we did the 2nd time.

The French onion soup was bland, the pork belly wasn't crisp and was instead tough, and the ribeye slice was thin. The side veggies were oily and sparse. Dessert was excellent! Amazing sugar pie and cheesecake. Service was also very good.

We ate in the lounge attached to the dining room, which is a bit more casual but has the same menu, and we actually preferred this. Great wine list, fantastic service. Bring a sweater as it's cold by the windows (although they have blankets). The duck confit and pork belly were to die for. We dined here several times and... More

We paid a high amount to stay over at Emerald Lake Lodge over New Years and our food and hot drinks came out cold. The sauces for the food were all dried to the plate with a dried film on top. So disappointed.

Emerald Lake Lodge is first class, from the beautiful mountain setting to the rustic lodge. The dining room is lovely and the food is wonderful. We highly recommend this destination.

We visited the Emerald Lake for lunch during a group day tour by coach from Banff. Our lunch was pre-ordered from an understandably limited choice, during the journey. On arrival it was provided in the Mount Burgess Dining Room, which is located in nice surroundings. The food was served quite quickly, and the size of the meals was good but... More

We eloped at this venue and took our dinner here. We had lakeside view and the menu options were lovely. The meat were succulent and tender. The staff were attentive.
