    We had a great experience with a very funny and light hearted server. The bison pasta dish was outstanding. I thought the salad could have been a lot fresher and I wasn’t wowed by the in house made ice cream for dessert. Overall, it was a very beautiful setting and a good experience.

    Menu selections excellent, include selections of game. Wish the other game options on the previous menu--elk, boar--had been available. But menu as is was very good. Service was excellent. The setting is unique--just above Lake Louise, with views of Mt Fairview from the dining room. The building fits the mountain environment.

    Great place away from Lake Louise crowds. One of the best meals my family has had at a restaurant. Needs a little sprucing up, but so did we after a day of hiking! Had the chicken, ribeye, and bison bolognese. All of our plates were clean! And desserts were impeccable!

    We visited here as a contrast to the nearby Fairmont Chateau, where we were staying. It's a really convenient 6 min or less walk. The vibe is calm, old wood beam style with great views. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful - definitely order the Bison Bolognese if on. A really enjoyable experience away from the crush. Highly recommended.

    We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Fairview dining Room. We both ordered the Heirloom tomato salad as a starter; really fresh high quality tomatoes with fresh mozzarella and drizzled with a vinaigrette. What made it especially delicious was a big scoop of relish in the middle; super tasty and we both are every bite. My husband ordered the Ribeye steal which he said was tender and flavorful. I ordered the flatbread with out any meat and it was piled high with vegetables and mozzarella and shaved Parmesan. For desert we shared the molten cake which comes with a cherry compote and whipped cream and ice cream. What was most special was our lovely server and the very personable restaurant manager who came by several times to inquire about how we were enjoying our meal.

    The Mt. Fairview Dining Room is part of the Deer Lodge. It was a short walk down the driveway at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Enjoyed dinner on May 17/22. The seared pork chop was cooked to perfection; the grilled CRMR bison striplion was prepared perfectly, and neither dish disappointed. However, the warm gingerbread was a not up to par as it dry and overbaked. Our dining room attendant Joanne (recently arrived from Australia) took great care of us during our dinner.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Deer Lodge. The charcutierie plate was so good, with surprising selections including the wild boar pate and pickled cantalou pe. The main course, the bison striploin, was exquisite. Our compliments to the chef, and our excellent waiter for a wonderful experience at Lake Louise.

    Was our Anniversary. Complimentary Prosecco was a lovely touch - Thankyou! We both had the Bison Steak and agree it was to die for. Can’t beat bison! Well, elk can and boar could try and would get close, but menu was changed and they don’t have those anymore. (Had to say it guys lol) Just love the CRMR cuisine!

    We have always enjoyed dining experiences with CRMR so on a recent get away weekend in Lake Louise we decided to have dinner at Deer Lodge. What a great choice. We each had the daily soup special Spicy Miso Mushroom. It was rich, delicious and spicy. In fact the soup was so good we purchased two orders to go at the end of our meal. For mains I had the T Bone Lamb Chop while my wife had the Beet salad as a main with a Molten Cake for dessert. The service provided by our waiter Luke was first rate. We will definitely return.

    The restaurant is tucked away in a rustic lodge, but the dining room is cozy with nice ambiance. Sadly the food is really hit and miss. Every dish I ordered first go round had an issue: -Potato Gnocchi: very gummy and gross -Bison Striplon: overly salty where I could not taste the meat and very chewy -Gingerbread dessert and ice cream: this was brown playdough and freezer burnt ice cream The staff was courteous, but obviously avoided me like the plague once it was "three strikes" on the food. I am not overly picky as the replacements were much better. -Musroom Ravioli: tasted amazing, sauce was incredible -Beef Tenderloin: very tender and just right -I skipped dessert replacement as I was super disappointed. My husband had the hazelnut tart and white chocolate ice cream both of which were average. After all the inconvenience they did not even offer to comp a dish. I had to wait for my replacement steak and watch my husband eat his meal, so I thought they would make more of an effort on their end. So even though they can make some good dishes, beware, it seems to be a 50/50 chance of getting something good!

    A birthday dinner to remember. The duck confit was sublime- very tender; Veal Ravioli with Sherry Cream sauce very tasty; the Bison was nicely done with great smokey sauce; Paired with nice wine. the desserts were out of this world scrumptious. The server was very accommodating, just the right amount of interaction.

We had trios mouse with smoked baba ghanoush, chipotle squash soup, Atlantic cod with sausage sauce, seared pork chop with pomegranate sauce and mashed potatoes with pancetta. All prepared to exactness. Sevice was friendly and cheerful. Price point excellent considering quality.

    Service was excellent, staff very cordial. I felt that there should have been larger portions of food in the entrees for the price. There were 8 of us and everyone was still hungry and hence ordered from the dessert menu. The desserts were spectacular! This restaurant would make a great stopping place for dessert and coffee, but for full dinner not enough food for the cost.
