    Awesome view, good service and afternoon tea. The price is a bit over considering what was served; however it’s acceptable if adding the generous view.

    Beautiful view of the Lake depending on where you are seated.The area where afternoon tea is served is not as nice as the first dining area. Food was good with a nice variety, left feeling full. Service was great, gave us hiking suggestions and came around often to check on us and refill the hot water for tea.

    Great view. Poor check in service, didn't get seated until 45 minutes after reservation time. Was told by Amber that it would be 5-10 minutes until our table was ready twice then waited in crowded hallway at restaurant check in. Asked about status 45 minutes after reservation time and was told by Olivia that our table had been ready. There were a lot of empty tables in the restaurant and we didn't sit next to a lakeside window so the delay was unreasonable. Food was good though.

    The food and ambience were pretty nice. It’s a great place to stay and chat for a rainy day at Lake Louis. However our negative experience came from the server. Our requests haven’t been taken good care by our server, and he kept us waiting for a long time before paying the bill. We wish he can be more considerate to the customers as most people will only been here once.

    Had lunch on June 12, 2022. Location was of course amazing with the view of Lake Louise. It’s hard to get a window table but you’re still able to enjoy the sight from other tables. Food was also pretty good and price very reasonable. I ordered the salmon which came out slightly dry but had a lot of flavor. My friend had the Asian salad which she seem to thoroughly enjoy. Then we shared a dessert (prairie berry opera cake) which was wonderful and refreshing. Would definitely recommend this place but make sure to make reservations

    The location is unbeatable but as is often the case when the views are superb, the restaurant falls short in other respects. The servers and restaurant managers were professional but there were flaws in the kitchen. I had a piece of seafood that was overcooked so it was dry. It had a lot of cilantro although I had said that I do not like it. It is difficult for me to understand the frequent use of cilantro when a good portion of the people do not like it. There must be something wrong with the chefs.

    I believe it was a one off experience we had with poor service. Our server must have been having a terrible day or it could very well have been her first day. Water was spilled on our table, our server didn't explain the tea steeping times (we overheard another table later on), we had children with us so our server indicated she would remove extraneous tableware, however never did... Someone else came out with food and asked us to make space for her on the table. There was no space to get started and that was the only check in point on how we were doing with food. Waited over 30 minutes to get the bill sorted. Celebrating daughter's birthday and that aspect was disappointing. Would give it another go as the food was absolutely heavenly.

    We enjoyed the Afternoon Tea in the Chateau Lake Louise very much. The food was delicious, it was great, to sit inside with a beautiful view onto the frozen Lake Louise and enjoy the seasonal menu of savory tea sandwiches, fresh scones with fruit preserves and cream, a selection of seasonal sweets and a choice of premium teas.

    It is a nice experience but the amount of actual food was less than last time we went so value for dollar was not optimal. A few too many scones and not enough desserts choice. Staff was lovely, friendly and efficient and the beauty of the location goes without saying.

    The 4 of us had afternoon tea to celebrate our retirements and our friends 70th birthday. We couldn’t have wished for a more enjoyable time. The food was delicious and was made extra special by a complimentary glass of sparkling wine for us all. Our waiter Kevin was very friendly and attentive. We were visiting from the UK so will definitely recommend it to all our friends should they be over in Lake Louise on holiday.
