We had a great time. Will surely be back !!
Warm staff, great food and excellent service. Everything you could possibly want for that perfect dining experience.
Hannah and THE TEAM are the best in - QUALITY of food, service, ambience and just a GREAT PLACE for whatever occasion.
We have been there many times and we brought 2 guests and they loved them restaurant as well
We felt very welcomed from the moment we walked through the doors. We were celebrating a birthday and multiple staff members throughout the night wished my wife a happy birthday. Fantastic food, amazing views... nothing but a good time!
My wife and I come to this restaurant once a year for her birthday. We are never disappointed, service is excellent and the food is absolutely amazing! We recommend this restaurant to everyone we talk with!
Requested a quiet table by the window and was lucky to get one! The place was packed. Service was great, food was great - I had the veal parmigiana and my husband had the 10 oz steak - both were great. Our friends had the lamb shank and veal parmigiana - they enjoyed theirs as well. Two of us had the specials and we each chose Caesar salad was very tasty, then it came with a shot glass dessert. Wine list was very good - lots to choose from. All in all a really great evening.
I was very happy with the vegetarian options - I ended up getting the Namaste Salad (from the lunch menu), and it was absolutely perfect. I will get that again when I go back! I also loved their mini-desserts, which let you indulge without having to get a full-sized dessert. We sat in the room that had a view of the lake, which was very nice. I also liked the fact that I could make a reservation online. All around a good experience!
My husband and I chose to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary at the Lakehouse and were thrilled we did!
The waterfront view at sunset set the romantic mood. With the room full, the noise level was low enough to have a conversation, which we appreciated.
The food was exquisite, perfectly cooked, and boasted a variety of flavour. It was difficult to choose from the expansive menu options! The timing of dishes was spot on from appetizers to dessert.
The service was impeccable. Our server was friendly, knowlegable, and upbeat.
Seating ranged from couples like ourselves to groups of 12+, never feeling cramped.
We were thrilled with our experiesnce, and cannot wait to return. It was definitely worth the 40 minute drive.
We had a wonderful time at the Lake House. Ashley was a great server and made sure we were well taken care of. The food was second-to-none. Absolutely fabulous. Can't wait to return.
I really enjoyed our recent dinner at the Lakehouse restaurant. I took my Dad there for his birthday and we were NOT disappointed! The food was great, the staff were friendly and the decor was really nice. Of course, we had a window seat so we looked out to the Lake.
Food is a bit overpriced, so I put 3 stars on value. However, it is easy to justify as the food and service is fantastic. We love the restaurant for special occasions, it will likely not become our favorite place to hang out.
Excellent atmosphere, excellent food. Will go again. Thanks to Matthew. Great waiter!!
Our experience at the Lakehouse was outstanding. From the minute we walked in we were treated fabulously. It was our anniversary and our table was beautifully sprinkled with heart shape confetti and our staff were so kind and polite. The food was outstanding, everything was perfect and served in a timely manner. There was no room for improvements, it was a perfect experience. Easily an 11/10 chance that we will return.
Signed up for a Sunday afternoon reservation about 20 minutes before arriving, watched three tables with no reservations get seated before me, after checking in again with front desk was finally seated. Great ambiance wonderful views of Lake Ontario. Menu very similar to Burlington Stone House sister restaurant. Ordered 'Niagara Best' burger, pemeal bacon was barely cooked (still gelatinous and cold). Server did well to have a new burger ordered and it was removed from final cheque. I'd chock it up to a minor error, but with so many excellent niagara area restaurants, doubt I'll be back soon for a redemption meal / service.
It's my new, favourite restaurant. I've driven by the restaurant for years, always wanting to dine there, just never did. I will definitely be going back.
Fantastic food is an under statement!!! Service and ambience was exceptional. And the food was absolutely amazing!!!
Fabulous food and service! Highly recommended. Try this place.
This was a wonderful experience for a Friday afternoon lunch. The service was excellent. When requesting a different table with a view of the water, we were quickly accommodated and that table was quickly cleaned and set for us. But the best was the food! I had a veal wrap with sweet potato fries and a green salad. Too much food for me, the leftover wrap was almost as good the next day. My partner had the burger and a salad substituted for the fries (accommodated easily).
We will be back!
Wonderful food, wonderful service. Will definitely go again...and again!
the food was outstanding! , other aspects were very good such as water view and some cozy corners by the fireplace but the food itself was the best
server was good but a little distracted with other tables
lOUD. LOUD. lOUD the restaurant is lOUD we’re there on a Saturday night the food is good the ambiance is nice but can’t get past how loud it is
What a fabulous meal. The interior is gorgeous, the service provided by Emma is exceptional, knowledgeable and professional. The food was spot on. "Mac and Cheese" was name only - the menu item itself, was so elevated that it need find its own name. Steak was Medium as requsted, everything perfectly seasoned, and the dessert with the smaller tray of options was just brilliant. There is a lot of thought that goes into these dishes, and exceptional skills. Plating is lovely. Emma was even able to explain why the gluten free options are not made in house like all other ingredients. It is specifically to prevent any opportunity for cross contamination, as those who have celiac have zero tolerance. So great to catch up with friends. Definitely coming back! Vegan and Gluten free options. There is a lot of noise, however, that doesn't bother us. Like many restaurants in Toronto, there is the general din of noise. Everything else far outweighed that.
Good food, good service as usual, A little noisy. Can't go wrong coming here with friends.
Never disappointed, amazing meal!
This was our first time at the LakeHouse. I wanted a special place to celebrate my 65th birthday and I could not have chosen a better place. The food, the service, the ambience were outstanding and it will be an evening I will never forget. Thank you for making my special day even more special. Looking forward to returning very soon!
Had our 2 year anniversary there and they were very accommodating, made it feel special for us for sure. Food was delicious and service was fantastic :) great for a special occasion.
Enjoyed our meal very much. Excellent food and service
My boyfriend and I found the lake house amazing. The food was good and the drinks as well. We loved how cozy and quiet it was. The portions of the food was just perfect.
Seafood was amazing! Perfectly cooked and the white sauce on the escargot was delicious. Great evening at our window seat! A belated Valentines!
Great service as usual, and the renovations are amazing.
An overall great experience, our table of four enjoyed our meals. Only recommendation I would have is to fill the plate with more veggies. We had the catch of the day, which was a great portion; however, I found the quantity of veggies lacking on the plate. The flavours were great. Our friends enjoyed the Paella for two, I tried some as well and the flavours were spot on delicious. We were lucky enough to have a table near the lakefront view, which was a nice added bonus. Reserve early for a waterfront view of the Lake! We will definitely go back for a special occasion.
My wife and I went there for our 26th anniversary. We are both originally from the St. Catharines area, but moved away about 25 years. We have talked about going to the Lake House for years (my younger brother worked in the kitchen probably 30 years ago), but it never seemed to fit our schedule. We finally planned going there for this special occasion. It was awesome! Totally worth the wait, but we certainly also wish we had gone much earlier and more often. Both of our meals were great (my wife had the Lake House Salad and I had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich). We went for lunch because the lunch menu had a few more items that appealed to me. Our server, Amy, was really sweet and helpful - she mentioned our anniversary a few times and actually sprinkled a bunch of small heart shapes on our table when we arrived (perhaps left over from Valentine's Day decorations). All of her suggestions were spot on. Just a great experience overall. Highly recommended.
Amazing food and great views of the lake!
Both my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the lakehouse. The service was nice, friendly, and not overwhelming. Our waitress did not hover over us, but came back to check on our meals in a timely manner. The food was absolutely delicious. The mini deserts were a perfect way to finish off the night, and were portioned well so you did not feel over stuffed. Overall, we loved our time there and will definitely be back.
Server Amy very friendly. View was excellent. Love the history and age of the restaurant.
I have to say, I was not that happy today. Started with the Classic Caesar salad. The dressing was oddly eggy and sweet. Not savoury or garlicky enough. My main, based on a recommendation was the Canadian burger. It was just okay and certainly did not deliver on it's $20 price tag. To be clear, I've paid way more for a burger and been ecstatic so it's not that I'm just cheap. First off, a little closer to medium doneness would have helped it immensely. (at least as an option) Most offensively, the Maple chipotle aioli is so sweet it reads as pancake syrup on a burger (not in a good way). Should use WAY less maple and amp up the chipotle because there was no spice at all. Fries were dry. I think they were coated in corn starch. I would lose that and fry them a little less. It would read more fine dining and less fast food. After requesting a table with a view at time of reservation, we were seated in a corner with no sightlines at all and no explanation why despite there being other more suitable tables available (my guest was already seated when I arrived). On a positive note, the decor refresh makes the place thankfully and necessarily much brighter and also, our server was quite pleasant. My overall lunch experience, however, left a lot to be desired, and for the first time after several visits, I find myself in no hurry to return to the Lake House. Can I also say that schlepping through a muddy parking lot on a rainy day does not seem right for this caliber of establishment. It appears to me that the place is successful enough that you could afford to pave the parking lot.
The restaurant was beautiful great staff but the food wasn’t anything great average $100 for dinner
Fantastic food, and overall experience.
My wife and I haven't been here for a few years. The renovations were very well done. The food is very well prepared and service is excellent. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about there menu and their specials of the day. We arrived 40 minutes ahead of our reservation with the request of special seating. We were prepared to sit at the bar until our table was ready and to our surprise we only had to wait 5 minutes and our request was granted. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and I was pleasantly surprised that the bill was much less then I thought it would be, even with the wine we ordered. I would completely recommend this restaurant to anyone. We plan on returning soon and often.
For our family is the 3th. time we been at the Lake House Restaurant and we enjoyed so much the relax feeling and the tasteful foods and the atmosphere, but overall we enjoyed the lake view during our enjoyable dinner. But this time we took sum friends with us and also they enjoyed so much, we all will be back soon and seat at tables close to the window to enjoy the beautiful view. Thanks
