Diner Reviews
  • "Three of our group had the prime rib Monday night special. The fourth had a filet mignon. All were accompanied by salad and a generous sized baked potato. The prime ribs were good, not excellent, but well priced. The six ounce filet was excellent. Our waiter, Chris, was attentive and very helpful with our wine choices. We selected from the wine list instead of taking the complimentary glass of wine, which came with the prime rib. There was no credit for the house wine we did not take, but the bottles we selected complimented our meal nicely."

  • "LAKESIDE is a great restaurant connected to LaTorretta Resort. It has been a fun quick get-a-way for our family and just us as a couple. The restaurant is great, great view at sunset., the wine list is complicated, The premium wines are all French and very expensive as in $1,400.00 and highest was $4,500.00. We enjoyed a Birthday dinner with friends with a less than delicious California every day Cab. Such a let down. We were prepared to splurge on a Luxury wine! The sommelier was too busy to come to our table, so the hostess came and we learned nothing about French wines nor did we experiment buying an expensive wine without any guidance."

  • "The waiter was not an English speaker and it took away from the experience. I ordered a Dewar's on the Rocks, easy ice and it came with lots of ice. Then when we asked what the house Chardonnay was, he told us it was Pinot Noir Chardonnay, but it rang up as something else and was as expensive as a few of the individually priced and listed wines on the wine list. I would not have asked for the "house" wine if I was paying as much for it as a featured wine. On occasion I had to ask the bartender to get the waiter. Although he was polite, he lack of command of English was a negative to our experience. I think with proper training he would be fine. Lakeside is a nice respite in this area."

  • "This was our third trip to Lakeside. I guess the third time is not always a charm. I had a filet and a friend of mine had a ribeye. Both were very good. My husband had the peppercorn strip steak which had grisle throughout and was on the tough side. We also ordered the mushrooms and they just were not what we expected. Texture was rubbery and a little too sweet. Our server was kind enough to remove from our bill. We will return again because as a rule the food haa been delicious."

  • "We ate their while staying at La Toretta on a family mini vacation. The food was really good overall. The wine list was ok, not great but good enough. It's was kid friendly which was great for us, others looking for a more romantic dinner may not appreciate that as much. The setting is nice but could be much better with a little bit of effort by management. The windows look out over a nice lake sunset. Unfortunately on the patio between the restaurant and the sunset was an empty table with an electrical panel sitting on it, one chair, and a chair cushion on the ground. Minor detail but just a sign that no one is paying attention to the details. The service was very friendly but not as attentive as I would expect at this price point."

  • "The best food - & the best bargain on food, simultaneously - at La Toretta. We had the filet mignon and 4 of the 5 desserts. All wonderful. They do chicken strips/fries for young children - and they were great w/our kids - but don't want to say "kid friendly" b/c w/any upscale restaurant one bad kid can ruin it all. We'd come from the resort in shorts/collar shirts/tennis shoes ... that seemed to be okay. Outdoor seating will be great in the fall."

  • "This was our 2nd trip to Lakeside. We enjoyed each visit. The food has been delicious and the presentation is great. Prices are a little high, but worth it when you do plan that special occasion. The restaurant was spotless and service was great. They had a big group the night we were there, but was not intrusive. Parking is a problem. Very limited!!! Needs inprovement there."

  • "Arranged Wedding Anniversary dinner for four and it was great! They were expecting us, and served the gratuitious champagne upon seating. The waiter was efficient, the food was very good, and the prices are very good. We watched the sun set and never felt rushed. We have found a new place to eat out and it's close to home."

  • "We found the hostess to be rude, the server was slow and inattentive and the good was only mediocre. They burnt my fish and it had to be remade (read: SLOW....) and then the second attempt was STILL overcooked and dry. I would never go back."

  • "Great prices for a great restaurant. Location would require a kids menu. Had no children in our party, just my wife and I for our anniversary. Free champagne was a plea sent surprise. Would certainly go back tomorrow."

  • "Our dining experience at Lakeside Restaurant was more than we expected in all ways. The food, prime rib, was cooked to perfection and flavorful, the salad crisp with fresh dressing and the baked potato cleverly presented. The server were attentive and knowledgeable, a great value for a superb meal. We will be regulars and bring our friends too!"

  • "Lakeside was an elegant restaurant with a supporting view. Our wait staff were kind and helpful. We were disappointed in the small menu but we were taken aback by the wonderful steaks yet the pricey and less tasty sides. More of a family atmosphere than romantic."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The setting is very attractive. Having a glass of wine on the outdoor veranda was really special. The food was excellent. The service was helpful but not efficient. We had a reservation. There were 2 tables by the window empty when we arrived . But we were told that they were not available. These tables never filled up. It may have been a question of help. The restaurant is very small and all the tables should be used ."

  • "There were 8 in our party. The staff was very accommodating. The service was good but the food was mediocre. My entree actually came out cold instead of hot. They also advertised Wednesday night as seafood night. That was not the case- just the standard menu."

  • "Great evening, Maître d, Lydia met us at the door and directed us to our Lake view seat. My wife enjoyed the Flounder with a shrimp and crab overlay. I had a huge delicious double pork chop, topped with a great sauce. The meals were excellent and the atmosphere was great for a Saturday evening. The Waite was excellent, however, somewhat rushed later in the evening when fully occupied. We look forward to returning very soon. The best restaurant in the area, and I would highly recommend this establish to anyone."

  • "Due to the price range of this restaurant, I felt patrons need a fare assessment, good and bad. First of all, tone of the evening is set from the first smile you receive upon arrival. We expect that smile to come from the greeter or hostess. My wife and I were greeted by neither. It was at least three minutes before any restaurant staff appeared. When they did, they seemed rushed and in the weeds but the restaurant less than half occupied at the time. Once seated, our hostess scurried away without saying a word. Not a thanks for coming in, your waitress will be, or is this table ok with you, notta... Here's the rest. Ribeye tough, tenderloin great, mushrooms fab, bread pudding incredible. As I said, so close but lacks management."

  • "I set this reservation 2 days prior because of the great recommendations on the internet. Me and my wife arrived on time for our romantic dinner for two. They seated us quickly. Only 3 tables in the entire restaurant had people at them when we walked in. It took 20 minutes to make a drink order. Another 10 minutes to be allowed to order appetizers. Finally our actual waitress Kelly showed up and took the dinner order. Finally the appetizer showed up. Artichoke dip , nothing special. The waitress still not being attentive or caring if we needed anything. Main courses Steak and a porkchop. The pork chop was good the encrusted steak was over seasoned. The worst experience of my life in dining. Will NEVER go back . "

  • "We went on a Monday night and it was very quiet. Had their prime rib dinner special and it was very good. There were suppose to be two waitress, but one of them had to leave. It didn't bother us as my wife and I talked and watched the sun go down and enjoyed our meal. I don't think any other guest cared either. We enjoyed our evening at the Lakeside Restaurant and will be back"

  • "We were not happy about the experience. We thought we could eat outside and they said no because of bugs. It was a pretty sunset and we could not enjoy that. The service was not good. I believe there was confusion in the kitchen and our waiter seemed to be alone with all tables. My prime rib was not juicy. "
