We were very pleased to have a family birthday dinner at the Inn on the Lake. The on line reservation service worked well, no problems. The Encore restaurant has great atmosphere. The service was excellent and professional.

ON this occasion I was ne of a party of 4. We all think the dinig room decor and ambiance is one of the nicest we have visited. service was very good, we are not an easy group, and the waitress was friendly and knew how to "take" us.
the coconut cream pie was a great hit.
Overall a very pleasant experience.

We took some special friends to Encore, Inn on the Lake. It was quiet and friendly and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food and the dining experience. We had requested a "quiet window table". Upon our arrival, we were seated at the best table, by the window, in the restaurant. I was impressed. My friends will go again and so will my wife and I.

Response to question # 2 not too complete, as it is winter, so am not sure what it would be like in summer. Greetings were great. Not too crowded (New Year's Day). On the expensive side (for me), so it will be a "special occasion" time for me to go again.
For the seafood crepe, (several scallops, two shrimp, no "chunks" of lobster, I really had to hunt to find even a little bite). The curry sauce was quite strong, could have been a little milder. Also, there was a lot of crepe, I did not eat it all.

We were a bit disappointed. We had read the reviews and had been advised by friends that this was a good place to dine. We had requested a table with a view and were placed in an isolated booth, even though the restaurant was not busy. The food and service were mediocre. However, the dessert was good. The atmosphere of the booth was ok, however it was difficult for the server to serve.

We (four in the party) truly enjoyed our lunch, this was a special occasion as we were helping our friends celebrate their 50th anniversary. Service was very impressive and we all enjoyed our visit.

Myself and my sisters had a wonderdul Christmas lunch together and it was nice to go to a place where the service is good, the food is not pub style and where you can sit and have a conversation. We were well treated and not rushed.

Upon arriving at Encore - Inn on the Lake we were greeeted promptly and seated at a table by the window. Our server gave us a few minutes with the wine menu and entree menu. We started with a basic bruschetta which didn't include olives (not a fan) and it was delicious and the perfect starter to our meals. My husband decided on the Pasta Marina which he enjoyed very much. He stated it had plenty of seafood. I had the Pork Tenderloin which was served with an apple and raisin chutney, potatoes and asparagus. For desert my husband had their signature coconut cream pie which he said was delicious. I had the Cinnamon crusted ice cream martini which was also delicious.

Food was very good, however it was the second time visiting this restaurant. On my first visit my dinner was so good it would be considered world class. On this visit the same meal was not prepared correctly. Will defiantly return and give this dish another chance!

The evening we had dinner at Inn on the lake, was disappointing. The restaurant was crowded and noisy, the food was mediocre at best and the waitress although very friendly mixed up our orders, one of my guests' steak was very over cooked.

The food was imaginative and well served. Getting good meals in Canada is not easy...particularly in restaurants attached to hotels - this proved the exception. We eat at European times and like to linger over our meal - this wasn't a problem!
