We ate in the lounge attached to the dining room, which is a bit more casual but has the same menu, and we actually preferred this. Great wine list, fantastic service. Bring a sweater as it's cold by the windows (although they have blankets). The duck confit and pork belly were to die for. We dined here several times and... More

We paid a high amount to stay over at Emerald Lake Lodge over New Years and our food and hot drinks came out cold. The sauces for the food were all dried to the plate with a dried film on top. So disappointed.

Emerald Lake Lodge is first class, from the beautiful mountain setting to the rustic lodge. The dining room is lovely and the food is wonderful. We highly recommend this destination.

We visited the Emerald Lake for lunch during a group day tour by coach from Banff. Our lunch was pre-ordered from an understandably limited choice, during the journey. On arrival it was provided in the Mount Burgess Dining Room, which is located in nice surroundings. The food was served quite quickly, and the size of the meals was good but... More

We eloped at this venue and took our dinner here. We had lakeside view and the menu options were lovely. The meat were succulent and tender. The staff were attentive.

This restaurant excels in preparation of wild game cuisine. Top notch. Other dishes were good as well. The service was a bit slow and at times, the restaurant was packed with diners.

Don't get me wrong, this is a fabulous and magical place, but when you order a Wild Mushroom Frittata, you would expect there to be mushrooms in it. The frittata was still very good, with asparagus, but it was nothing like the menu write up. All other meals we had here were spectacular!

First of all, the lodge that this restaurant is situated in is so cozy and lovely. The waiter was fantastic, not afraid to give us suggestions about menu items. All of the dishes we had were so delicious. The caribou was some of the best red meat I have ever had, same goes for the gnocchi with the chicken entrée.... More

The food is lovely but perhaps a little on the high side. The wine, and there is a very extensive wine list, is even more on the high side. The Eggs Benny Hollandaise is among the best I have tried. The Salmon with Lemon risotto is fantastic.
