Royal Coach Dining Room - Chateau Louis Hotel & Conference Centre
We believe that meals should be enjoyed and not rushed. Good food takes time to properly prepare and we will endeavour to make every meal memorable.

The Royal Coach Dining Room's buffets (the gluten free prime rib buffet this past Saturday and the French buffet a week ago Friday) are sterling examples of what a restaurant can do when it commits to great food for everybody, regardless of dietary restrictions. The gluten-free dessert selection, all made in house, is amazing, and you'd never know that they are gluten free. They are fabulous and delicious. As is everything else on the buffet. Thanks to Chef Lorne and his staff for taking gluten-free dining to a new level.
Service was terrible. We were seated for at least 10 minutes before we had to request service. We were then informed that there was a buffet offered and then we were told it was 23.99 but when those who had the buffet went to pay it was suddenly 26.99. It was far from worth 26.99. We were not offered menus and had to ask for them. This had been our original plan and were prepared in advance as to what we wished to order given we were on a lunch hour. For those who had the buffet, there were no refills for coffee or soft drinks.
The food, service and ambience was great. We really enjoyed everything.
Gluten free dinner buffet on Saturday evenings. It’s great to not have to worry about what my son (9) chooses!
Food was good. Service on the other hand was less than stellar. May have been a fluke. Will probably try it again another time.
Good food, quiet atmosphere, good service, friendly staff, gluten free Saturday buffet
I have been twice now to the Saturday gluten free buffet and both times was very impressed by the service but very disappointed with the food. Both times the soup was watery, the lettuce was obviously ‘bagged’ lettuce as it had a plastic taste, the cheese tray was non-existent (literally zero on the tray and was not refreshed), the pickled beans etc. were questionable looking, there were very few sides (this time it was only mashed potato, mixed vegetables or green salad (if you could call it that - there were no cucumbers, onion or tomatoes available to even put into salad), the snapper tasted very fishy and the chicken rice dish was dried out and chewy. On the plus side the prime rib was very good and the gluten free carrot cake was excellent. Despite the excellent service, overall this was not a good value for the money - for four of us to eat it was over $200 (which included just three alcoholic beverages). In comparison, for $50 per person I can go to The Keg or Continental Treat and have a delicious meal with wine and dessert with full service and without the buffet cafeteria ‘experience’. As a celiac I am really disappointed to have one less option for dining out.
If you want to go for a Gluten Free buffet and not worry about anything at all, then go here. Even the multiple desserts!
Severe Celiac friends have also eaten here with no issues.
Kudos to Tracy our waitress. She was very pleasant as well as well versed on the buffet. It was a very nice outing with our out of town friends.
The roast beef was incredible. It's finally nice to find a chef that can carve the roast the way you want. Plus the ceaser dressing was awesome. Desserts could be better.
We were celebrating my wife's birthday. They had everything ready. Food was amazing. Presentation and taste was 10 out of 10. The Chef came and personally greeted us. They were very accommodating of the two kids we had. Server was super helpful and friendly. We ll come back for sure. The atmosphere is very classy and classic. Live music matched the theme of the food being featured. Thank you so much.
The food was good with lots of options at the buffet. Good seafood selection. The kids loved the waffles. You can tell it is an older restaurant from the decor, but it was great for a larger group (there was 10 of us). The value was good as well, it was $32 for an adult and 8 for kids under 12.
This is an awesome place for anyone who has Celiac as their Sat night Buffet is all Gluten Free and the food is excellent. Very friendly staff as well they are very attentive.
Went for mothers day brunch. Food was decent and varied. Good mix of hot and cold items, both breakfast and lunch options. I do find they over do the meals with the lunch options, therefore bring able to charge a premium for the meal. Which leads to the price, very overpriced. A better option, focus on breakfast and an evening buffet, and charge accordingly.
We brought our granddaughters, and they thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday Brunch.
I was disappointed with the little choices in salads, seafood was not existant and they started to remove the buffet at around 9 pm when it is suppose to be open until 10 pm.
The food was very tasty and was kept very warm.
The service was very good and attentive.
Gluten free buffet was awesome! Our son loves this place.
Our first visit and we shall return. Nothing in Sherwood Park is comparable. The staff were efficient and courteous and were very engaging in conversation, information and service. I will recommend the facility to friends and relatives.
Very good Italian food. Old French dining room.
However, they have dinner buffet in the same room, it’s a bit of disappointed
The lack of knowledge and the uncaring attitude of the wait staff make this place a definite "never again".
The atmosphere also reeks of a bad 1980's "medieval times" wannabe without any of the actual entertainment value.
Always a pleasure to visit their Saturday evening buffet. The food has always been amazing. The service is top notch. Love this place! Is a family favorite.
Appreciated the fact that there was a lot of seafood selection on the brunch menu as well as a variety of tasty lunch style dishes. The omelette and waffle station was also a hit. Seems a bit pricey for kids who don't eat much like my son who is seven as he ate less than a half of a waffle for $14. Overall, the food was good but for over $100 for two adults, one senior and a child it prevents us as a family from going out as much as we would want to. However, very happy that the staff sang happy birthday to my mother-in-law along with giving her a small dessert she could take home. It made her day!
Had a great early lunch. Was quiet restaurant. Good service and food was quite alright. Did not NEED a reservation at this hour..
Very awesome all gluten free meal we had! Just next time we are NOT bringing kids! Our 3 yr old was awful. :( I do want to come back though - as a date!
Wonderful food I love the gluten free buffets!!! Chef does an amazing job on the food and desserts that are gluten free. Please keep the gluten free buffets!!
We had a party of 20 for a christmas occasion. It was great food and amazing service! Thanks so much!
Great place to celebrate family special days. The Sunday brunch has a variety of food specialties. I always have the freshly cooked omelette .
Running a gluten free kitchen can be tiring so our son suggested dinner out at Chateau Louis's Saturday gf prime rib buffet. His enjoyment in being able to choose his food without worry would have been worth the cost no matter what the quality but every dish was expertly prepared. The beef, fish and chicken were moist and tender and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. The selections were not inventive but all were tasty; imagine the best home cooking you have had. As for the previous comments regarding the dated ambiance, when the food is this good no one is thinking about decor. My only suggestion would be to turn down the music but overall I would be happy to go back - especially as my highly sensitive celiac son had no reactions.
Amazing gluten free prime rib buffet on saturdays. As a celiac, it's wonderful to eat out and not have to worry.
We were here for family dinner for the Gluten-Free Saturday night buffet. The food was plentiful, freshly prepared and well presented. It was such a treat to be able to eat any dessert on the table without having to worry about the ingredients. I've found it difficult to find good tasting desserts that are gluten-free in Edmonton, but this buffet would be the place to go- all made from scratch! The 3 other in my party did not have gluten allergies but they enjoyed their meals just the same as the flavours were outstanding, and the prime rib made to perfection. The chef had also prepared a poultry and seafood selection too. Kudos to the servers and staff, who were attentive and always ensured our waters and coffee was replenished. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and look forward to returning soon!
I was recommended this resturant for the Saturday evening gluten free Buffet. I have celiac disease, my husband does not. We both found the food amazing. I was so appreciative to have a meal without worrying about what I was eating. The prime rib ,the shrimp risotto and the almond torte were the favourites.
The place is dated and the resturant isn't fancy to look at but since we were there for gluten free Buffet, it didn't matter.
Went for the gluten-free prime rib buffet. Last Saturday of every month. Food was very good. The prime rib was very good. The deserts were awesome and all gluten free. It was great to go to a buffet and not have to be concerned and ask a lot of questions to ensure something was gluten free. It was ALL gluten free. Thanks Chef Lorne! We'll be back.
We have had brunch before at the Chateau Louis and it has always been excellent. The food is well prepared and always freshly made. However, things were not great on Father's Day. It seems that they were not ready for the number of people that came for brunch that day. There were huge lineups, and items were not always replenished as quickly as they were eaten, which made the long lineups even more frustrating.
The worst part was that we had to wait a very long time to get and pay our bill, while at the same time we were being rushed out because another party was waiting for the table. Over all, a frustrating experience.
We went to the Father's Day Brunch. There was some confusion about the reservations and what time the brunch opened but the management cleared it up a few days ahead of our reservation. The brunch was good. The food was fresh and the buffet itself was clean and well organized. We found the dining tables too close together but considering it was a special day we understood. The staff were attentive and polite. The only suggestion for improvement would be the location and performance of the waffle and omelette station. It ran out of waffles in the first 15 minutes so people had to wait. This meant a long line that wound past all the tables close to this station. It was very difficult to get around this line to go to the buffet. People were nice and did their best to make room but with two of our group being 86 and 91 it was challenging. Overall we had a good time and will go again.
Way overpriced. Food was tasty.
Overall very good.
This was my second time here for brunch, because the brunch buffet is incredible. Everything is simply delicious, and the ambiance is lovely (quiet and classy).
Went for Mother's Day brunch. The food was good, fresh. The dining room was a bit out dated.
This is the one Saturday evening buffet in all of the Edmonton area where myself, my husband & our granddaughter (all 3 of us have wheat allergies), can be certain it is safe to dine & not get cross-contamination of items containing wheat. It is so refreshing to be able to select anything on the gluten free buffet. Our granddaughter is 12 & she loves the fact that she can try every dessert, instead of being limited to only 1 or 2. Other places we still pay full price for a buffet, but can only choose a few items and even then need to worry that some other patron used the wrong spoon and then we will get sick. The buffet menu is always awesome with a variety of selections.
We also love the Sunday brunch. While brunch is not gluten free, there is always a decent selection of items we can choose from and the staff is always very accommodating in bringing us items from the kitchen to ensure it has not been cross-contaminated.
We went for the Easter Dinner Buffet, and we were not disappointed with the food, it was very good. Service was timed perfectly for drinks and plate clearing.
Although I booked a reservation, we were seated in the piano bar at a booth and the ambiance was lost for this dinner with the TVs and rowdy bar crowd. It was not the experience I wanted for my parents.
I would return again, just request the buffet room for seating.
