    Absolutely stunning location. Menu is limited, but the food is good. We had a boat tour scheduled afterwards which was perfect.

    The decked terrace is divided in halves for 'restaraunt' and 'self-serve cafe' diners. We were glad to have booked the restaurant which offered more space, shade and relaxation than the Cafe side. Food was lovely if a little slow arriving (actually that just gave us more time to soak in the stunning location). LOVE that this terrace does not have loud music to destroy the natural and laid back atmosphere. We were not hurried away from our table and sipped our drinks long after lunch was cleared away - rare to find in Canada.

    The only thing I would advise to people is that it's a lot farther then you think away- so keep that in mind. We apologetically arrived late as we did not realize how far away it was. The service was great and the staff very good. The food was absolutely PHENOMENAL. Kuddos to the chef. Absolutely amazing food.

    The view stood by its name as it boasted a stunning view of Maligne Lake. The staff were so accommodating too and were quick to assist us. We needed to rush the meals because we had a scheduled ride so they sped everything up and packed the meals we couldn’t eat in a takeout box too. The whole experience in the lake wouldn’t be complete without dining here!

    Our second time at the view. Food was outstanding as it was the first time. We sat inside because it was cooler but many people chose to sit on the patio and enjoy the view. We are both gluten intolerant and the staff were very knowledgeable on what we could and could not have.

    It was alright but the food was only so so. A lot of the food was either under or overcooked. Our server was very friendly but the service overall was slow. It seemed like a really nice spot but the menu options and the quality of the food for the price wouldn't have us going back. Beautiful views of the lake and the seating was nice but not enough to make you want to go back.

    This was our second visit to "The View" and we came away as happy as our first visit. The food was delicious and they continue to use high-quality, local ingredients. Our waitress, Josie was very friendly and gave us top notch service with a smile. The cocktails were well made and the dessert was fabulous. And, the "View" is breathtaking... after all you are in Maligne Lake, which is the most beautiful lake in the Rockies. We can't wait to come back for our next visit.

    Jack took excellent care of us. Super friendly service, and top rated kids meals (rated by the kids!) Child-approriate and tasty :) not sure why some restaurants think kids meals should be "gourmet" when most kids are somewhat fussy eaters - The View gets this perfectly. Perfectly cooked chicken, Mac and Cheese, and the best fries we've had in ages. Thank you!

    The View is true to it's name, excellent! The food is excellent as well but it is pricey. Moderate sized portions. Our server was friendly and helpful but the manager was visibly stressed and short with diners. Patience required due to Covid-19.

    Unfortunately the weather wasn't that great when we ate here, which was not the fault of the restaurant. We started outside and then to moved inside. We had made a reservation for 5:30. The waitress was polite to us, but actually quite rude to two other couples that were there at the same time. She kept stating that the kitchen closed at 6 and if they didn't hurry up and order they wouldn't get any food (kind of ridiculous when we had a reservation for 5:30). Her attitude was overall not considerate of the guests which was disappointing and added a real negative to our experience. She also did not explain any of the drinks or food items, so the cocktails we ordered, for example, were a surprise, not what we expected, and we actually didn't enjoy either of them. We felt like that was a real waste of $30. We did the $44/person option for a 3 course meal. The food was actually delicious. The butternut squash bisque was amazing. The mains were done really well. The dessert was pretty meh. I'm pretty sure it was a teensy bite of the assorted cheesecake from costco and one of the assorted mini maccarons from costco as well. Overall, I was hoping for a romantic and memorable experience with my husband for our anniversary and felt pretty disappointed afterward. The food was a check mark, but the experience and service was a big no thank you to return in the future.

    I think the menu is too limited and the prices are high for what is offered. I also think that there should be more options for sides. I had a hamburger with about 2 little pieces of veggie and about 5 loonie size pieces of roasted potatoes and that was $28. My husband had a piece of trout that was paper thin and about 3" long for $27. It is way too much for the proportions we received. The service and atmospere were amazing but I would forgo eating there again
