Description: One of the most iconic lobby lounges in the Canadian Rockies, the Lakeview Lounge offers a charming and elegant setting to sip on a sophisticated cocktail or an illustrious wine. Sit back, relax and admire the spectacular, world-class views of Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier. The combination of architectural and natural beauty makes for an unforgettable lobby lounge experience in the heart of Banff National Park. Be sure to sample our signature cocktail; the Lakeview Cosmopolitan, that has been a local’s favourite for years. In addition to an extensive cocktail and wine selection, seasonally inspired lunch and dinner menus are available. During the summer months, soak up the fresh mountain air and surrounding beauty from one of the most scenic patios in the Canadian Rockies.

“Good Food, Great View”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Lunch on the outdoor terrace at the Lakeview lounge was a treat. With Lake Louise and the Victoria Glacier as the backdrop, the views are stunning. The food was good (try the sliders) and the service acceptable given the crowd on Sunday afternoon. A little pricey, but you are paying the view.

“Worth it for the breathtaking views”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Four of us had lunch on the patio, and although it was a bit cool, we had the most breathtaking views around of Lake Louise. The cocktails, food and service were all excellent, but they do come at a high price. But if the sun is out on the lake, I think it's worth the splurge.

“Overpriced food but fantastic view”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Specifically came here to eat lunch, several options available but chose this one based on menu options. Really was quite disappointed in food quality and expected much more. Had the "vegetable" soup, it turned out to be a pureed vegetable but extremely thin more like a broth just ok. Manager asked if everything was ok and told her about soup and just said sorry. Bread selection however was very good and tasted wonderful. Husband had rueben and said it was good. However dessert made up for soup, lemon tart was wonderful. Knew lunch would be pricey afterall going to the Fairmont but $130 for 4 for lunch, 2 soups, 1 salad, 1 sandwich, 3 glasses wine and 2 desserts, really expensive. Service wasn't over the top just ok. The views were fantastic.

“Great place for a comfy bite with a breathtaking view !”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The place for a laid-back bite and drink with your partner or with family in front of a fantastic view. Superb quick, efficient service from bartender and waiters. Can get noisy due it being located right off the main lobby and adjacent to shopping area within the hotel.
