    It was our 16th wedding anniversary, and we wanted a nice restaurant close to the house. Started out fine…the complimentary wine was very good and the shrimp cocktail was tasty. After that it pretty much went downhill. My wife found a BIG BLACK hair in her chicken, a few bites in….and my steak was cooked on one side and RARE on the other. I like a nicely cooked rare steak but this was chewy and very tough! I only ate half of it, and it was a 26 dollars steak. Back to my wife’s chicken…The young waitress picked it up and said she was sorry, only to bring it back nearly 20 minutes later. At this point my wife wanted it to go. Never was there a mention of adjustment of the bill. We will surely remember this 16th!

    Based on the food and ambiance, this could be a wonderful place for a romantic or special occasion dinner on the lake. Unfortunately, the service left a lot to be desired. Considering the restaurant was almost empty, we waited entirely too long for just about everything. Having said that, the meal itself - both land and sea options - delicious. Our compliments to the chef. Definite potential here, if service improves.

    We went there for a quiet get away for just my husband and I for his birthday. The staff was great in handling all of my surprises during the evening,(a special gift delivered at dinner and the Edible Arrangements I had them put on the bed for when we returned from dinner). We went to their steakhouse, and the food was just wonderful. We didn't get to enjoy the water park, but we look forward to coming back with the kids. Over all the experience was outstanding. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet retreat or for the whole family.

    The appetizer crab cakes were very good. The shrimp entree was satisfactory, but not exceptional. The side of asparagus was good as well. As for the view, a view over the lake would have been lovely, especially at sunset. However, we got there at dark and, since it's not lit up outside, you can't see anything.

    Awesome views and quiet. The challenge was the wait staff. The waiter that we received spoke very little English so when it was time to order he did not ask how we wanted our steaks cooked or what type of salad dressing we would prefer. We helped him out throughout the process and everything turned out fine. They need to be able to communicate....

    They dining room was a dingy, very outdated and worn. The food was acceptable (mushrooms, asparagus, pork chop and redfish) though, but the dishes were also quite outdated. I wouldn't even have minded that so much but the price was outrageous for the quality and cost added to the sub-par ambiance. We didn't have terrible service, but it was also very mediocre and the staff didn't seem to care and were very "humdrum". I definitely will not be returning.

    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.
