Food was delicious! The ambiance was exactly what I expected. I took my mother here for an early Mothers Day celebration and we were more than impressed. From the service to the food to the view, everything was just awesome! All the staff were so pleasant. Will defiantly be coming back again.

Beautiful views. Great service. They could consider revamping the dinner menu to add more variety and premium ingredients, I mean it is the Fairmont after all.

The service was superb, the drinks were unique and refreshing, the food was mouth watering and cooked to perfection. The tables were spaced out well enough that you had privacy for a romantic lunch and the courtyard grounds were well manicured. I love this spot for eats or a drink.

The evening was nice. Both my husband and I agreed that the brisket, ribs, and sausage were average. They were not hot almost like they were pre cooked and rewarmed on the BBQ. Aside from the meats other items were enjoyable.

It was my wife’s birthday and I was looking for an attractive patio dinner venue due to COVID restrictions. It did not take much time to locate Confederation Lounge during my internet search. Staff were very helpful when we arrived at the hotel. It was cold due to the rain (14 degrees) The server switched on the heater and we did not feel cold thereafter. The dinner was excellent. The server was attending to all our needs. We unexpectedly received a piece of strawberry and a peace of cake because it was my wife’s birthday. I would recommend to make a reservation for your special occasion.
