Friendly service is a plus, food is OK, not bad. Expensive but you pay for the location. We are tired from the daytime touring, had lamb and beef; their were OK, nothing special.

I wish I'd been able to try the antipasto buffet, which looked wonderful. My own choice, the chef's special (shredded chicken in a creamy wine sauce with a soft egg) was amazing! Also, I think they have the best bartender at the Chateau, which is saying something!!

We ate here TWICE while staying at the Lake Louse Chateau Fairmont. We had the same waitress both nights who made each event rememberable. Personally, I loved the pepper grinder which was about four feet long! While I was not 'blown away' with the entrees, there was NO wait with a reservation, the staff were present for any issues, the... More

We at Lago while staying at the Chateau. Since we always go in the winter and Lago is only open in the summer, this was our first visit despite many stays at the hotel. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The food was edible but consistently lacking in flavour. Prices were also extremely high (although this is true of all the... More

Good Caesar salad, and service was excellent. Main course was truly awful--broccoli in risotto? The shrimp in the risotto were literally pea-sized.

Think about the largest selection of breakfast buffet and they add a couple more things that you never thought of. And even if you suggested something, I'm sure they would whip it up for you. It's not cheap, but the selection is pretty much second to none. It wasn't even just breakfast items, there was something for everyone. Breads/pastries/buns, salad... More

At the recommendation from the hotel, we booked dinner for our family of 5 our first night in Alberta. What a mistake. Our server was terrible. She made an error in placing our order, which is understandable, but then proceeded to serve other tables and apologize to us when our food didn't arrive. She was sweet and would apologize and...
