A word from Lago
Located on the edge of a beautiful Farrington lake in the heart of central jersey with ability to dine on our outdoor patio, there is nothing that compares.

Concentrating in American cuisine with fantastic water views and relaxing atmosphere makes it one of the most scenic and romantic facilities in the state.

Our private rooms can accommodate as little as 20 and up to 150 guests to satisfy a variety of parties and events. We manage your entire party experience, from supplying decorations to DJ to cake.

Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to this restaurant several times since it has changed owners. While I will admit the first 2 times the service was shaky that has changed. Everytime the food has been great. This past experience was great from beginning to end. They have made many positive changes to the menu. I can't wait to go back."

  • "Good place - been there before when it was under another name - trying to make it big - seems on it's way. Would go back"

  • "Great for a catered event not for an evening for two. This is primarily a banquet hall not a restaurant for fine dining. The staff was very friendly and the food was good."

  • "Food was mediocre, noise level was very loud since they had two catered parties taking place with disc jockey music. Service tried to make up for the disturbance. Also, parking lot was full so that parking was delayed until guests exited the parties. If you are going to eat here make sure they do not have any catered parties the night you dine there."

  • "We enjoyed our dining experience here. My husband was looking for a good prime rib and found it here at My scallops were huge and delicious. The caesar salad was a bit dry - it could have used some more dressing. The atmosphere was calm and elegant. We would comes back."

  • "We had the scallops. 3 for $30. If they were sensational than maybe, but, they weren't."

  • "The bright spot at Lago is the food. Once we finally ordered, we enjoyed our meal. Getting to the food is what detracted from experience. The misspellings and lack of description on the menu led to a lot of questions for the waitress. This would not have been a problem but the waitress did not speak English very well and did not understand our questions not the answers she received from the kitchen and other servers when she tried to get them answered. Additionally, we were there with a 4 year old child and the Menu is not child friendly. The Children's Menu is too "adult" and there were no selections our daughter was willing to eat. We will definitely try it again but probably not soon."

  • "The new owners of this restaurant have done a great job. I liked it before but it is even better now. They have remodeled the bar area and it's really nice. You can either sit at the bar or relax in club chairs. The food is always good, as is the service & ambiance. Love sitting outside overlooking the lake, when weather permits!"

  • "Server, Ryan, was very nice and personable, however his inexperience showed. The bus boy was also not on the ball. Water was not refilled, drink ordered came very late - after the meal, and food sent to be wrapped to take home never came back. Food was pretty good, mushroom flatbread was excellent, but not worth the price if I did not have a groupon."

  • "It was a Birthday dinner for just the two of us, Barry was our waiter very helpful and even gave my girlfriend a suggestion for a drink she loved it!! I for one was over whelmed for I don't go out much. The party in the next room we heard the music as we were trying to eat. The sound level did go up while we were there. At first nice little quite place but then the music started and the people in the dining room got louder before you know it was a lot of what sorry didn't hear you and we were at a table for two. Good was very good Barry the waiter great and I would and am going back when the weather gets warmer so I can sit outside and look at the water."

  • "We enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. The food was good and the staff is friendly. They are newer and have a few small things to work out but overall it was good."

  • "Food was good as usual with the buffet having a wide selection of items. We did feel the waitress either was new or overloaded with tables because she was slow at times. When I made the reservation I noted that we would have a handicapped person with our group so asked for a table up front. However, others in my group arrived before me and they were seated at the far end of the dining room."

  • "the updates outside and in are very nice. The service was bad from the start. The waitress didn't offer any of the specials, did not tell us there was dressing on the house salad and that the ceaser salad comes with italian dressing on it, not cesear dressing. The stuffed flounder was very over cooked, and portions very small. (3 fingerling potatoes and 3 pieces of broccolini. The chipolte scallops was good, but again, small portions. (3 scallops, 3 fingerling potatoes, 3 brocolini.). the menu is small. will not be going back any time soon."

  • "The food was plain and simple and to that end it was good, albeit expensive for what it is. The desserts were very non-descript and I would not order the pie, cheese cake, or bread pudding (if that's what it was) again. The buffet dessert table actually ran out of several of the advertised options."

  • "Everything seems to be the same as it was when it was Sir Johns except for the name. The manager who was not very nice to us three months ago is still there. Glad we did not have any encounter with her. if the new owners read this, you need to get rid of her!"

  • "You can decide, here's what happened. My wife and I ordered 2 scallop dinners. 1 hour and 10 minutes later I tracked down the waiter, who seemed confused, and was surprised that my wife and I was not served dinner yet. Finally they brought our food, but they got my wifes order wrong. Two different people told us, I did not ask, that they would send over the manager/owner to speak wit us. (No one from management ever bothered to come over). (F.Y.I. very small portions - 4 scallops per dinner). On the way out I told the host of my experience and he asked for my name number and email addrss and said 'he would see to it that we would be takencare of and send us an email for a free dinner. - It never happened."
