There was nothing exceptional about the menu—this is your basic nice restaurant in NJ with good selections of seafood, meat, and some standard vegetarian options. The pre-dinner rolls were meh. The food and service were fine. No complaints but no real creativity or risks. There was nothing memorable, just a standard nice meal. Safe bet for a family. Good view of the lake when the weather’s nice.
Nice place to meet up with friends or for a party. Good food, good service, good happy hour specials, beautiful lake view and outdoor seating. They have a band later in the evening on weekends.
Excellent!!!!! No complaints. Good service and food.
Outdoor dining was very nice. I suggest those big propane heaters for cooler nights. Waitstaff seemed confused but very nice. Loud inside with band but I like that, everyone was dancing. Outside much quieter nice table overlooking water. Food was ok had the Chinese ribs and lo mein. Flatbread was more like a personal size pizza. Expected a rectangular flatbread. Drinks were weak but that was fine with us as we were driving 😉. Will probably get wine next time... we will go back and try something else.
We finally found a restaurant that we can go to on a Friday night and be able to hear each other in conversation. Have not eaten there is 10 years, and the food was far better than I remember.
A little pricey, but we will try to share meals so we can come regularly (with drinks, $150 for two)
Service was a little lacking. More attention being paid to party going on in the next room. Had to wait 15 minutes for Host to even acknowledge we were there. Food was good. Really enjoyed the music. Danced a little too. I would return but not for the food. This seemed like a lively place for an evening.
Our server Valerie was very attentive. Food was very good and quicker than expected. There was a band playing as others have noted, but if that's not something you'd enjoy call ahead to see about timing or type of band, as the hostess and host were also very pleasant.
Had a great time! Igor was our waiter and he is a gem! Can get noisy when there is a live band but most of the time wonderful for good food, drinks and conversation. A local favorite.
The food was great. We ate for Valentine's day and there was a live band. Great ambience!
Food was delicious. Nice menu with good selection. Service excellent. Entertainment was good but a little loud for my taste. Overall we had a very nice time and enjoyed the experience. Want to come back when weather is warmer and dine outside overlooking Farrington lake. This was for Valentines Day and my wife enjoyed it very much.
This was our first time at the restaurant. The restaurant is nice however, the bar and the staging area for live music is also in the main dining area so this makes for a loud diner. Wait staff was great. Our waiters name was Igor. Appetizers were good. The meal however was not. Including myself, there were four of us. Two orders of short ribs, a steak and a stuffed flounder all came to the table cold. When I say cold, I mean cold to the touch. There was no warmth coming from the food, not even the plate was hot. When we spoke with the manager, all plates were removed and we were all provided with new diners. The food was so cold that even when the plate was removed, the table top was cold. Usually the area just under the plate is at least warm. The staff was very apologetic and offered soup or salad as we waited. Once the food came out, it was delicious. After our meal, we did not have desert but we did have coffee. Two regular and two espressos. None of which was piping hot. Some call me strange but I myself like my espresso hot. After all was said and done, the management made good on everything including the bill and because the the actions of the manager and waiter we will give Lago a second chance
Excellent grilled octopus. Great quick service. Lovely warm woodsy ambiance. Would return.
Nit very busy so we were able to chose a table with a lake view. Nothing compares to eating outdoors here in warm weather but New Jersey in the winter....arg! We started with a special of Chinese spring rolls. There were 6 generous pieces with 3 different sauces. Dinners were Chinese spare ribs over lo mein and a special of cavatelli with roasted butternut squash and leek. Food was very good and portions were large.
Great waiter ( Igor) he was on point with everything all night long.
We had a wonderful meal. We were a party of 7. Short rib, mushroom and host cheese flat bread, bourbon pork chop, etc... Everyone loved their meals... The service was great. There was a band, so it was a little loud, but it was a lot of fun.
We dined at Lago for my moms 82nd birthday on weds evening, which I thought it would be quiet. However although we were the only customers by table areas, the whole restaurant was quite noisy because there were some drunkards by bar.
Otherwise the food and service were excellent!
Outdoor dining on the lake when you know the warm nights are soon over....perfect and so close to home! We shared an apple and pecan salad, which was split in the kitchen... an important box for us to check! Dinners were crab cakes and a special of salmon with an almond pesto. Both dinners came with wild rice pilaf and vegetables. Serving sizeswere more then adequate. Tasty meals fir both of us.
Our first time here.... arrived for an early dinner on Saturday -- the restaurant was not (yet?) crowded, and we opted to dine outdoors: it was a beautiful evening, it overlooked a lake, and, most importantly, it was quiet. (By the time we left, the restaurant still remained empty, although the outdoor dining area had several patrons.) The menu was varied with creative cuisine options at different price points. The food was "good-to-very-good". Service was decent up until our dinner plates were cleared. Bread basket/butter was left on the table, even when offered coffee (and remained throughout). Coffee, espresso, and cappuccino (<-- undrinkable) after dinner was a huge disappointment. Cannot comment on dessert, as it was never offered. Still, I will give it another try since the food and ambience was above average. Will just skip the coffee after.
Great outdoor seating space, good ambience, the food was very well done and the cocktails were nice too
Clean and nice place. We had good time, delicious food and good service.
Very pleasant and calm water front restaurant.
I will decently recommended this place to my friends. Thanks
This could be a beautiful restaurant. The restaurant is on a beautiful lake. The indoors isime a VFW hall- large, cheap and rather ugly. The outdoors is pretty, but the dining table are uncomfortable and cheap. If you put carpeting in the indoor restaurant and osed off the bar area adding floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake the would be a classy place. Such a waste of location.Food was good and service was good.
We really enjoyed sitting on the patio overlooking the lake. We lingered over a late lunch with family and enjoyed our meals. Thank you Lagos!
We had a large group and they only had one server. The food was amazing but service was beyond slow. After waiting for over 30 minutes for Waitress, we asked the manager to come out and take our orders.
Incredible Flatbreads, luscious Salads, great cocktails. Sit on the Patio with gorgeous view. Igor is the best server
We sat on the patio and the view was great. My son and a few other kids made friends while waiting for dinner and played without disturbing the other diners. The atmosphere was very casual. The food was okay. The wings for appetizers were great. We ordered crab cakes, pasta and cheeseburger for our
son. It was a huge burger and he was only able to eat half.
Disappointing. Food was average at best. Nothing stood out. Not good value.
pork chops and chicken were overcooked and tough. party in room next door too loud to really talk. Band setting up in the room where we were dining took away from the ambience. If you happen to go on a nice day and can sit by the lake for drinks it would be nice. Won't be returning.
Perfect night to eat outside! Food was very good.. shrimp and grits and a classic cheese burger. Lake view makes it great!
Took my mom here for Mother's Day Brunch! It was delicious and it was set up lovely. I just expected the outside (where the lake area/outdoor eating is) to be more cleaned up/aesthetically pleasing. Redoing the back patio and front walkway could add a lot of value to the place by having it feel more inviting/romantic.
Mother's Day dinner
Food, drinks, service and decor were not good, especially for the cost. However, once dinner was over, the party started. I don't know if this is the case every weekend, but a 50's band was playing, and the dance floor was soon packed. My wife and I had a fun time dancing.
Overall good experience at this restaurant. We sat outside on a day where they were not very crowded, so it was unusually quiet. Service was attentive and the food was ok, but there was nothing about our experience here that really stood out. Good restaurant for a date night where you are rushed to find plans.
Good food, large portions, reasonable prices and a nice view of the lake. Very few patrons on a cold Thursday!
Igor was our server. Very enthusiastic and kind. Bread was excellent, light and fluffy in addition to being quite warm. We got the crab an artichoke dip for an app, it was delicious. The fried pita chips were great along with the dip. Next were our entrees. I got the Chinese spare ribs with spicy garlic vegetable lo-mein. The pasta tasted like it was made from scratch and the vegetables were crisp and juicy. Sauce on the noodles was excellent as well as the BBQ ribs. My fiancée got the gnocchi dish. She prefers the gnocchi to be light and pillowy and that's just how the pasta was (I had to sample some). Sauce was good, I can't really gauge how good it was because I am not one for cheese sauces but she really liked it. We boxed most of our meal because we wanted to have desert. The menu was recently consolidated so there were six options and we chose the pecan tart. Really great presentation. Caramel drizzle across the plate, plenty of nuts on the tart and extra sticky on the inside. It was to die for. We ordered coffee after and asked for decaf, even that was amazing. I'd love to know what kind of coffee they use. Overall experience I give them 5 stars out of 5. Only one thing could have been improved upon. Igor, you did a really awesome job and you were without a doubt the best waiter I have ever had, but offer coffee along with desert! Otherwise A+!
Quiet evening. We both had the crab cakes. Cane with rice pilaf and vegetables. Very good service by Igor.
LOVELY LOCATION, NICE SEATING, GOOD FOOD! THE ALCOHOLIC DRINKS WERE NOT AT ALL TASTY, MIXED POORLY. WHILE I ENJOYED THE BAND, IT WAS A TAD LOUD AND TOO CLOSE TO THOSE EATING. I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE THE SPACE FOR THE BAND LOCATED BY THE BAR BUT PERHAPS THE SPEAKERS/SOUND COULD BE ADJUSTED TO AVOID ANNOYANCE.
I GIVE A 3 OUTTA 5, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
We had a wonderful time. It was a very quite night and we had our waiter (Igor) to ourselves. He was a lot of fun. Food was excellent and plentiful. Love dining here.
The music was poor and too loud! Could not hear my date talking!
Service was slow for a restaurant that was not busy. Sat out on the patio for a good 20 mins before seeing the waiter. Drinks came out after appetizers. Party going on it the main dining room very loud with kids out of control.
My brother and I went on a Sunday night to celebrate my birthday. The only other patrons, about 4 of them, were at the bar. Once they left, we were the only diners in the restaurant. It was definitely a unique experience. The food was delicious and the waiter was awesome. I'll definitely return.
We are outside. There was a party going on in their private room so the noise level was higher than preferred. Food was just average. More like your local everyday family restaurant. For a dinner out while away from home this was not the place to go. Not a date night location
Waitress never checked on us. Was worried they were going to start the lawn mower during the dinner hour.
