    A nice change for this place. Now called Il Laghetto, it has a bigger, better menu. Food was very tasty and satisfying. Kids had good options and enjoyed their food too. Still has the popcorn, which is a good thing. Will definitely be back.

    Scott, our server, was as attentive to my party's needs as all of my prior 3 visits! The new menu looks great. The Wasabi salmon was awesome, but not too spicy for my taste. The other main dishes were very appetizing as were the side dishes. Even though the new menu doesn't include a vegetarian dish, the chef prepared a hearty vegetarian dish for one of my guests that left her quite full. We hope they will add a vegetarian dish as they had in their prior menus. Even though the name has changed to "Il Boghetto" (The Pond, a very appropriate name considering it is located right on Lake Mahopac) the staff remained the same and as attentive and very friendly. We had a wonderful dinning experience and weren't rushed at all. I still recommend it.

    My friend and I dined at The Terrace Club on a Tuesday evening. We began our dinner sampling oysters, which were all very fresh and delicious, although we favored the sweeter West Coast varieties. My NY Strip Steak was cooked to medium-rare perfection; the accompanying broccoli rabes were simply delicious as were the mashed potatoes. I couldn't finish the steak and had it the following morning for breakfast; it was still delicious! My friend ate fish (I think it was a special that night) and she enjoyed it immensely. The atmosphere was delightful ---quiet and on the water as was the service.

    It was a great night to dine al fresco and we enjoyed it. A little pricey but food was very good and more than enough. Asked for some parmesan cheese but it never did arrive -- other than that it was a great experience. I would go again and did the very next day for lunch!

    Accommodating service and the food was good, but not great. They still serve yummy popcorn with truffle oil in lieu of a bread basket. We dined on a Sat night and by 9:00 we were practically the last table still there. Somewhat older crowd which means early diners. This no longer has the vibrant bar scene that it used to be known for but still a good place with beautiful lake views. If weather is nice, request an outside table.

    Right on boat dock of Lake Mahopac, great music in the back round, relaxing and elegant. Seafood appetizers fresh and delicious, Pork chop special was excellent, broccoli rabe was the best I've had. Lobster ravioli in vodka sauce was perfect. Fast professional service. Our new favorite place to spend date night on a beautiful summer evening. Feels like You are on vacation.

    We arrived at 8:00...just in time to see sunset over Lake Mahopac. We had a reservation for four inside...but luckily someone never arrived for their outdoor booth! We had a delicious fish dinner (scallops and tuna) and scrumptious ice exam sundae and lemon tart for dessert. The oysters appetizer were on small side for $$...

    My last time here (Fathers' Day, 2014) the Niman steak wasn't on the menu it was in March, 2014, my 1st time there. I had another steak, not from Niman, but came close. Victor, the manager, was very apologetic and offered to try and obtain that steak from Niman Ranch the next time I wanted to dine here. I just had to give a week's notice. This happened on July 24th. That morning I received a confirmation call from Victor's partner, Tony. I was warmly received upon my arrival. Scott, my favorite waiter, was as attentive as ever, the shrimp cocktail as big and delicious as ever. Steak was good w/out any fat & cooked just right, as always. Sunset was marvelous seen from the outdoor seating, very relaxing w/ a nice Merlot. Will try other entrée

    Dined on 7/24/2014
    Thought it was a beautiful night for dinner at the lake. The food was fair my filet mignonette was to be medium rare and it was VERY rare. The popcorn was a nice touch, but waiting for service, we could have had 1 or 2 more. Once our order was taken, we had a very long wait. Asked for bread to tide us over. Had good company, but the food did not warrant the prices they charge. The menu is very limited too. Definitely not a place to bring a family for a nice dinner. Mahopac has other restaurants that warrant the prices and the food is exceptional there.

Our drinks arrived promptly, which were absolutely divine! that mason jar one was delish! next-the food...ugh. literally every bite was melting in my mouth. to begin we had the tempura calamari and the PEI mussels & for dinner i had the amish chicken and my hubby had the pork chop. hands down the whole meal was to die for! can not wait too come back! congrats on the new owners!

    The food was out of this world...we went on an early Sunday evening and it wasn't too crowded. However, the service and food delivery was very slow. I wasn't planning to spend over two hours on an early dinner. There was just way too much time in-between the popcorn, salads and dinner.

    Service was ok just confused. There was a private party and the kitchen could not handle both the party and the restaurants other guests. When we sat down they told us it would be 20 minutes before they would be able to put our order in. We could have drinks and only appetizers from the raw bar or salad while we wait. Just never heard of a restaurant that can't handle a private party and their guests.

    First time there and will definitely give it a second try since the food was excellent. The bus boy was on his game but definitely not the waitress. Multiple requests for items before finally getting them after waiting a very long time. Maybe she was having a bad day but it was early evening and not busy so this was the only disappointment.

    Dine outside and you can practically dip your hand in lovely Lake Mahopac! But the new owners must get some sun control as it's no fun to have the blazing setting sun interrupt an otherwise sublime setting. The menu has something for everyone, from raw bar staples and fresh salads to mouth watering beef tenderloin with scrumptious lobster mashed potatoes. The tuna (seared rare of course) and the scallops on polenta are also winners. There's also attractive inside seating but the one negative is the smell of popcorn that permeates the air. In a word, Yuck. The one complaint is that service needs to step it up. It took way too long for drinks or to be told that the second bottle of wine was not available.

    The service was awful. We waited for an outside table and when we were seated my back was to the water and the view. What I saw was the wait staff station and people coming and going. It then took an absurdly long time for anyone to offer us a drink, let alone tell us specials or take our order. I finally asked someone if they could take our order and it seemed like no one was really assigned to our table. We received our appetizer after a reasonable amount of time but our main courses took another absurdly amount of time. When the food finally arrived, it was cold. So clearly it had been sitting around for awhile. We decided not to get coffee or dessert as our experience by then was so disappointing, we did not wish to continue it.

    The food and service was excellent. The waiter gave us plenty of time to enjoy the company we were with. He was helpful and accommodated two special requests. The only this that was somewhat of a bother was the setting sun as we had dinner outside on the patio. Maybe a diffuser curtian could be put up to reduce the glare.
