If you’re looking for hearty comfort food, you’ve found it. Its artisan, locally grown, alpine-inspired food and it tastes even better at 5,200 feet. Claim your seat at the bar or gather your crew and dig in to dishes that will satisfy your mountain-size appetite. Keep in mind; calories don’t count in the Rockies.

    We were greeted by very friendly staff who were kind enough to seat us 30 minutes earlier than our reserved time as we’d finished our other activities sooner than expected. The customer service remained at a high level through the entire experience. All that we tried off of the menu was delicious and perfectly prepared - we would highly recommend the fried chicken and nachos as starters!

    This place is trying very hard to have a hipster kind of vibe and the menu had much potential. Unfortunately, the food was simply not good. The flatbread was smaller than a cheap mini frozen pizza and wasn’t crisp at all. It was wet and floppy. My husband’s meal also left much to be desired. We dined at other restaurants at this hotel during our stay and they were much better. Try those instead.

    The food tasted terrible- ordered ceviche - had to send back - worst I have ever had. Other did not taste good and tiny portions. Had tacos, ribs, soup. Service was poor. Waiter disappeared for long periods of time. Someone else eventually came with our check. Awful expect. Waste of time and money on our vacation.

    Lake Louise in August is a zoo. Parking lots are full, meaning that you may have to park miles away, take shuttles into town and then walk distances to sights. I say this because it explains why the gatekeeper to the Chateau Lake Louise facilities grilled me about our lunch reservation and (eventually) grudgingly allowed us to pass to the parking facility. Once past that, everything went well. The service was gracious (esp. concierge and restaurant staff), the hotel lovely (if the ideal of an urban high-rise plopped directly in front of a glacial fed lake appeals to), and the setting incomparable. The food at Alpine Social was rustic and very good, the service terrific, prices reasonable by local standards. Well worth a visit. Careful with the boutique shops, though, because one could easily end up with a second or third mortgage to cover one's purchases.

    Alpine SocialResponded on August 16, 2019

    Perfect light lunch before hiking around Lake Louise. Made a last minute reservation before our planned hike so we could see the hotel and be able to park close to the trail. Sat on the heated patio overlooking the lake and had a very friendly Aussie server, nice glass of wine, and small plates. My shrimp could have been a bit better, but then again we live in Boston and are used to ultra fresh seafood. It was a great start to our day on Lake Louise!

    Service was glacially slow. Understand it was the beginning of the season, so *very* inexperienced staff all the way around. It was not packed & drinks sat on the bar ready to go for 10+ minutes, water wasn’t refilled, waitress was a ghost. The host was pretentious. However, the duck confit & pork belly were both delicious!!! Overall, a disappointment compared to other Fairmont properties.

    Ok. Not worth the price though. The menu tries to be a sort of tapas place i.e. It's divided into small medium and large plates, but the items aren't exactly conducive to that. The waffle fries are bland sad and hopeless, a lot like the other things on the menu. Mediocre at best. They do have an extensive alcohol drink selection

    Alpine Social is a refreshing addition to Château Lake Louise. The evening begins with a casual setting and becomes more animated as the night carries on - around 11pm, there is a DJ by the bar area bringing a new energy to the room. The menu is brillant as you can share smaller or larger dishes or, even better, a variety of premium steaks (highly recomended!!). The wine list is not too extensive, which makes it perfect for the style of restaurant. On the other hand, their cocktail list is very diversified with an incredible amount of choices. Overall, the food is fantastic, the atmosphere fun and the staff is very attentive. I would recommend Alpine Social to anyone that is visiting Lake Louise! Cheers!

    Nice tavern atmosphere in the Fairmont. We couldn't get an Open Table reservation for 7 PM and rushed in for 6:30. Place was empty - they weren't even interested in getting our name for the reservation. Food was good, portions reasonable, service indifferent. Each course delivered by a different person was fine, but no one took responsibility for filling water glasses, timely delivery of check or asking if we needed anything. It was a pleasant meal, we would go back... Just expect basic service.
