Take the gondola or open lift to access this beautiful spot. You can eat inside but why when you have a large deck overlooking ski hill with Lake Louise in distance. We both had braised bison and it was tender and delicious. We had two...More

We have ordered Compressed Watermelon Salad, Halibut, Tempura Zucchini Blossoms and Shrimp Ravioli. The salad and tempura were interesting. Fish was a bit over cooked but quinoa tasted good. Ravioli was huge and tasted fine. Unfortunately on day of visit due to snow and fog.

Great place to have a meal with amazing views. Brad our server was very attentive and friendly. My husband and I chose the Fondue to share which was amazing. Well worth a visit.

We did a phone reservation but the host had no record of my name when we arrived. However we are still given a seat right away. Great view but didn’t enjoy my food as much as it was a little over cooked.

We were staying at the Chateau Lake Louise, and wanted to get off the property and go around and see some of the surrounding sites. We took the gondola up as part of a package deal, and had a 1pm reservation at the Whitehorn Bistro....More

Response from Lake Louise S | Property representative |
Hi there, Unfortunately dogs are not permitted on the gondola/lifts, so would not be able to access Whitehorn Bistro. They can be on the decks at the base area-provided there is no food being served on those decks.
