The location is great. Nice view of the lake and mountain.
We liked the Korean lettuce tacos. The salmon entree was poor - overcooked and swamped with a sauce. The served was friendly and efficient.

The food, service and ambience were as expected given the cost. The only let down of the evening was when the bus gal was spray8ng down the table next to us and was a bit careless and spray me and what was left of my dinner with the cleaner... which meant I was done dinner.

Good meal, the service was nice, and being lakeside was a bonus. However, it was a bit loud for my liking. Overall though i'd return.

Food was excellent, tasty and creative. Drinks got a bit slow when they were slammed with full tables but they took it off the bill. Highly recommend.

Our experience was excellent. The menu had so many vegetarian options that I was sure to mention it to our server Matt. My husband and I will most definitely dine at this restaurant again next time we are in Waterton.

The service was great! The food on the other hand not so great. Ordered the Brie appetizer and came with thick chunks of cold garlic bread, should be served with small toasted crostini’s in my opinion and the Brie was burnt and cold. The salmon was ok the sauce wasn’t the greatest and the mash potatoes reminded me of the ones you get out of the box. My son ordered the filet mignon and it was ok. Kudos to the server and manager for rectifying the meal.

I had emailed and requested requested a semi private table, instead we got a table on the patio right in the middle of everything. Aside from that the service was good, food was delicious albeit expensive. Would consider dining there again as an option.

My husband and I had a reservation at 8 PM, but when we arrived we were told that the restaurant was very busy and that we would be added to the waitlist. We were asked to take a seat in the lounge to let them catch up. We had no problem sitting and having a cocktail but we weren’t brought to our table for 30 minutes. Nothing was said to us to acknowledge this and we would’ve appreciated a small gesture such as a complementary drink or dessert. The prawn appetizer was absolutely delicious but our main courses (steaks) we’re not that great. The vegetables were under done and the steak tasted like charred meat. Our server was great - Very friendly and attentive. We were just disappointed and the lack of acknowledgment regarding our reservation.

Amazing food (which should be expected for the price point). The restaurant was beautiful, and the service was great. The only thing that made the experience not as enjoyable was the lack of A/C or fans, and the open doors with lack of screens meant you were constantly swatting flies away from your food.

Too many diners trying to be seated, served and moved on ASAP.

Our food arrived within 5 minutes of ordering and we were then pressured to make up our minds for dessert!!
Obviously everything was pre-cooked.

Not the same experience I remember and have dined there many times.

I really liked eating in the patio and being able to see the lake and the mountains. It was a very good experience. Unfortunately, when I got my food, the pasta with ribs, I didn’t enjoy the bread that came with it. It tasted not fresh. But other than that, it was delicious!

I ordered a medium rare steak. It came medium well and the meat was stringy. Not top quality beef for the price I paid. It is a nice restaurant though and the staff and service was excellent.
