                                          Awful. The menu changed to a format where all the dishes are supposed to be shared. Absolutely hate it. My guests thought I must be a nut to bring them to this type of place. Furthermore I think it is just another way of increasing prices. Last time we ever go to this place.

                                          Very nice ambience, great renovations for the old restaurant. Couple of issues. Using the middle eastern name for the "mezze" platter tricked us into thinking it would be a pork free item. When I asked for confirmation from our server she let us know that it is actually their version of a charcuterie platter and it did indeed have pork. House made sour dough bread came out slightly burnt. Cowboy chop lacked seasoning.

                                          A grand and newly renovated bar… but a really bizarre, small and poorly organized menu - and very poor execution by the kitchen coupled with lacklustre service… Fairmont should do much much better. Only rescued a little by the renovated area.

                                          History abounds with this location but it is so difficult to create ambiance in this dark and lofty room. Menu is somewhat limited but it was good food and good service .

                                          This was the PERFECT choice for a long overdue catch-up. The high beautiful ceilings created a feel of open space and the tables were all placed well for privacy and distance. Our servers were fantastic and attentive. The food was amazing, I had the eggs benny knowing they would be done well here. We stayed for over 5 hours! Clearly we will be back!

                                          Was surprised to order a steak and receive it served on a side plate with some French fries and ketchup. Steak itself was not bad.

                                          I expected way more than a restaurant in Fairmont hotel.Our servant was so rude and disrespectful. The food was ok but again for that price and ambiance I expected at least a bit better food quality. Not satisfied at all and won’t ho again.

                                          Today’s experience was much better than yesterday. Shoutout to Carolyn for accommodating me to really enjoy immensely to their music night events both yesterday and today! Also shoutout to my server, Teresa; she went above and beyond as she offered me with cheese and crackers with my complimentary drink. I really had an amazing after dinner for both nights this weekend. Thank you so much!

                                          The service was excellent and the food was good. The cocktails were ok but too many small ice cubes were used in several cocktails and they very quickly got watered down muted as a result ruining what otherwise would have been a good drink. Large cubes should be used or at least the ice should have been 1/3 of what was put in at a minimum.

                                          Our dinner was to celebrate our 57th wedding anniversary. Our server Jessica was very respectful of our privacy but really helped to make our evening special. Ending our dinner with a complimentary chocolate mousse with a sparkler! She also took some lovely photos of us.

                                          Had a birthday dinner with my husband here in March. It was amazing - 5 star service from when we walked in to when we left. The food was amazing and such BIG servings and great value for the price. Our waitress was amazing, very accommodating and pleasant and knowledgeable. After dinner we asked to move to a location close to the fireplace so we could enjoy the ambiance in nice comfortable couches - where we enjoyed coffee and dessert. It was SO romantic! Would definitely go back and have no hesitation recommending to others.

                                          Ambience was great! Entertainment was also really enjoyable. Service not not so much. Waitress was abrupt and at the end when she brought the terminal she literally dropped it on the table and just said “there you go” As far as recommending to a friend, only options are yes & no. I think it would depend on what they are looking for.

                                          The food was incredible. You must try the braised lamb pasta! We celebrated our wedding anniversary there and it was really worth the money! Good portion sizes and the special chocolate mousse dessert was so delicious. Live music from 8pm on Saturday so it did get a bit louder.

                                          It was so nice here! The vibe and quietness! The food was alright but the service was amazing!

                                          Overall the experience was just ok… there’s something missing between the look and the function of the room. The sofas sit too low or the table and chairs a crossed from them are too high for the lounge environment of the front bar 🤷🏼‍♀️

                                          I love everything about this place - but the DJ on friday night was just way too loud for people having dinner. Also song choices were wrong for the venue.

                                          3 of us went for breakfast. We waited well over 1 hour for our food, therefore, when it finally arrived we had to rush and eat to leave for a commitment. The bill (with gratuity and no alcohol) $113.00. No one believes me at work. Still the room is lovely. Julie our waitress lovely also and did apologize for delay from kitchen.

                                          The steak was yummy. The carrots, mushroom and Brussels sprouts sides were phenomenal. The mezze plate was questionable. But the ambiance, Sallie Mae - entertainer fabulous!!!

                                          We booked an afternoon tea through open table. Clearly got the reservation confirmed for 17 Feb (Wednesday) only to get to know at the restaurant that they do not serve afternoon teas other than the weekends. My disappointment is more towards the open table as why they would list afternoon tea and have me reserved for it on a special occasion when they don’t even provide it during the weekdays! Update: I would like to extend my greetings & big shout out to #Amanda at Fairmont Palliser! Who called back and discussed the issue we had yesterday! And I appreciate her gesture and looking forward to another dining experience next week or so. Thank you!

                                          You MUST try the roasted half chicken, and the brussel sprouts. They are to die for!! Service was good but didn't stand out. I felt our server was a bit rushed even though it wasn't busy, and it didn't feel very personable. Pacing and timing was great :)
