                                                  We had an outstanding meal at Emerald Lake Lodge. We highly recommend the Walnut Pate and Scallops for your appetizers. I was skeptical when my wife ordered the Walnut Pate but it was so good that I want to have it everyday for the rest of my life! I had the lamb and my wife had the elk tenderloin for our main courses. Each was excellent...the potato and leek tower that comes with the elk is fantastic. Great service and a great meal.

                                                  We enjoyed delicious food in a beautiful setting overlooking the lake, service was very friendly and efficient and I would highly recommend the restaurant. Only criticism I would make which may sound strange is of the cutlery in particular the knives where the handles are an unusual square shape and difficult to hold.

                                                  We had reservations at the restaurant, when we arrived the restaurant was 25 % full, however we were still led to the worst table in the place. When we asked if we could get a better table we were told they were for people with reservations, when we reminded them that we had a reservation we were given the excuse that the prime tables were for people celebrating something, We had our 3 course meal and left, all the while the coveted tables remained empty, even though the food was excellent, I will not return because of how we were treated by the assistance manager.

                                                  Excellent service and great food. Dinner for 1 including appetizer, 1 drink, main and dessert was over 100 with tip so definitely on the pricey side but worth every penny.

                                                  Perfect tenderloin; beautiful presentation and gorgeous views. Suggestion: sit families with young kids in one area. Offer Easter 3 course meal preset meals. Surprised no special meals for the long weekend! Or a high tea! I would suggest a nice screen to separate diners from the check in lobby traffic..thx!

                                                  I give 4 out of 5, because when I ordered the steak I asked for medium rear, but came out well done. Still a very good meal overall.

                                                  My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two days at Emerald Lake Lodge. In particular, the Dining room had a fabulous view with our table by the window and the food was outstanding. A nice getaway from Calgary. The interiors of the cabins certainly could be upgraded, yet I’m sure this would be quite the expense for the property. Housekeeping could be improved in terms of cleanliness of the floors in particular. Meghan at reception was a delight to deal with regarding a housekeeping issue in our cabin. Thank you Meghan.!

                                                  A. accommodation was fine as was the service and breakfast. Our room could use some renovations, caulking is separating on the corner of the tub surround, tub stained, shower difficult to get working. However our dinner was very disappointing. My elk steak was tough and I did not like the sauce. The chicken my wife had was also a disappointment, and meager serving.

                                                  During our two night stay, we ate four in the Burgess Dining Room, and each dining experience was lovely, and very enjoyable. Service was exemplary, and welcoming and servers were VERY accommodating. The food was excellent over the four meals (two dinners and two breakfasts) and cooked to perfection. We would highly recommend the Burgess Dining Room at Emerald Lake Lodge.

                                                  Oh my GOD, this place was phenomenal. We had dinner here while on a mini vacation. We started with the scallops, which had an insane amount of flavour in every bite. For dinner, I ordered the wild rice soufflé roll, which was phenomenal, the squash purée it came with was mouth watering. My friend ordered the chicken breast which was so juicy, and had an amazing sauce, they actually ended up ordering a single dinner roll so they could dip it in the sauce and not waste it. For dessert, we split a brownie and the pannacotta. The pannacotta was… literally perfect. The texture, the flavor, everything. The brownie was good, but I would order the pannacotta over that. The waitress was sweet and attentive. Already planning our next trip to the Lodge and will definitely be back for a meal here!

                                                  Food was quite good...problem was the quantity and the price. Ordered scallops ($22) and soup ($17)...got 2 medium size scallops and half a cup of soup. Wine is stupid expensive...market up price is around 5x the actual cost. Nice setting though and staff are very friendly.

                                                  The lamb was spectacular. Very tender. The tenderloin was also exceptional. Lovely setting in an old wood lodge. Service was friendly and prompt but not hovering. Considering any other option would be difficult for guests involving a shuttle to a frozen car we were very happy that the restaurant was so good. Recommend the Maverick red wine too. Had Salmon the second night which was good except for the eggplant which was a bit chewy.

                                                  We are at the Mount Burgess dining room both nights we were there and it was nothing short of amazing. The food was incredible, the serving staff were awesome and Richard was very cheeky and funny! Felicia was such an all around server and really cared about everything. We’ll definitely be back, thanks again!

                                                  We ordered cheesecake for dessert that took 45 minutes. It was so hot in the restaurant we left with other guests.

                                                  Our server, Felicia was amazing! She made us feel welcome right away, engaged in fun conversation, made exceptional recommendations (scallops, and the chicken entree) Scallops taste like candy and the chicken has been on the menu for over 25years! Both are a must try. Drinks were delicious too, dessert of course was unbeatable.

                                                  My GF would have liked the pasta that is on the lunch menu, for dinner, but we were told the request couldn't be accomodated because, "if they did it for us, they's have to do it for everyone." It was a Wednesday and there were 5 other tables.

                                                  The owners need to fix the heating issues of the lodge. For the prices you pay the heat should not be an issue. Other than that the food was very good.

                                                  Everything was perfect except two things. One, there where floor heaters around and no fireplace going? There is a huge fireplace in the room. The other thing was the Kitchen staff was eating across the table from us. I didn't mind at 1st (Whatever)he was still wearing his white apron. However he looked like he was board and then off and on he kept fidgeting with his boots tapping on the floor! I'm paying for a $200 dinner here and this guy is sitting here probably eating his free staff meal. It really ruined the mood of the place.

                                                  We had a very delicious meal at Mount Burgess Dining Room. I had the tenderloin with port reduction that was so delicious! And the Scallops were so tasty and tender. Everything was outstanding and the service and ambience first class! Would definitely return.
