    How much better can it get than to eat in a beautiful turn of the century dining room facing Lake Erie? The food was delicious and reasonably priced.

    We enjoyed our luncheon together (as a birthday-lunch event) for the two of us (we are also seasonal employees of Lakeside-Chautuaqua), and we were able to "book" our table on-line for the 11:15 a.m. morning lunch-period and also to get a table near the northern-side (near the window overlooking the lake). We considered having our luncheon together because this date was a "special event" (i.e., a birthday celebration for a 30-year-old who has been a guest and/or a seasonal employee at Lakeside-Chautauqua for almost all of his 30 years). We consider utilizing the Hotel Lakeside dining room as a "special occasion" location due to its more formal environment.

    Ate at a table by the window facing the lake. Very relaxing Great service-attentive without hovering I had the beet salad and Mediterranean flatbread-it was so much I left half the flatbread. It was very good but too much for me

    Most of the food was pretty good. The coffee was terrible, bland artichoke dip and pecan chicken. The bread and spread board was scrumptious. The kids meals, ice cream sundaes and cheesecake were all delicious. Food presentation and service was nice.

    It's challenging for the restaurant to build a really great experience because they are seasonal. But the experience really could be better. The hotel and dining room remain very dated. Some nostalgia is appreciated but there is really nothing new here. The dining room had an immediate fish smell. There was considerable dust on screen doors entering(someone even drew a smiley face in the dust on the door which should be a strong hint to management). Our waitress was very sweet and hardworking. The food was not great. The Steak Frites had the same fries used for everything else and not as advertised or what you'd normally expect of Steak Frites which is kind of a big part of that dish. Other meals lacked flavor. We did need to wait for Ketchup for about five minutes after the meal was served. And there was no existence of malt vinegar which was shocking considering that is a pretty big staple for Fish and Chips. The Diet Coke however was amazing. The review is written in the hopes management can take note of needed improvements because it's such a beautiful location in a very historic space and I know residents and vacationers would respond very well.

    We wanted to visit the hotel and thought eating there would be fun. We enjoyed the porch while waiting. Despite reservations, we had to wait about 10 minutes not due to popularity. I enjoyed the lobster bisque and crab cakes were good but needed more browning. The scallops were meal needs some work. We didn't care for the blueberry jam and corn underneath. Scallops were cooked well but expected larger sea scallops for price. Peach drink was wonderful and enjoyed the view.

    We waited a long time for our appetizers (which was not a huge problem. We chatted). Very soon after they arrived, our main course was brought. Salads were missed. The staff didn’t see a problem in placing our meal with barely touched appetizers, and pushed back a little when we said we had not received our salads. We asked that the main course be taken away so we could eat our appetizers and salad. Sadly, the main course was just stuck in a warmer or something and got dried out Water was not refilled unless we requested it. My guess is the staff is not experienced. This is an ongoing issue (pre Covid) at Hotel Lakeside. It’s too bad.

    The asparagus was tough and they didn’t even cut off the ends. Half our food was cold such as the risotto but the scallops were over cooked. The chicken fingers were tough and dry. Dessert was great as was the waitress, just poor food.

    The hostess seated us beside a window. The view of the lake was lovely, as was the music playing throughout the dining room. The whole time that we were in the dining room, we were the only customers. Our foodserver greeted us and brought us our drinks. She was pleasant and answered our questions. I ordered the osso buco and my daughter ordered a steak. Both of them came with salads. My husband ordered the beet salad and asked that it come to the table the same time as our salads. She brought our salads and then disappeared. During a lengthy time, two of us ran out of drinks and my husband did not receive his salad. We sat for some time until my husband’s food, including the beet salad, came all at once. My food, as well as my daughter’s food were delivered to the table, along with drink refills. The osso buco was superb, as was the steak. The crab cakes were a little rubbery. After our meal, the manager asked about the food. Our foodserver was kind, but I would recommend some training on customer service. ( Checking on food and drink refills) We would be happy to try the Hotel Lakeside Dining Room again.

    Challenge to run and staff a better restaurant from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Food was very average. All things considered in my restaurant experiences, all I desire is better than average flavors, not even creative or inventive. I was not fulfilled in the flavors department.

    Food is excellent, every time we go it seems to get better, with a view of Lake Erie in a historic location! We have been there for dinner, Sunday Brunch, and LOVE the Afternoon Tea. Service has mostly been very good. Variety on the menus has something for everyone, and the Afternoon has a wide selection of food pairings along with the tea.

    The food was so so. I took my husband there for Father’s Day and was hoping for an outstanding brunch. It was okay but nothing special. The prime rib was very good but I like horseradish with prime rib and all they had was au jus.

    Server was lovely Salad dressing was much too sweet without something like blue cheese or nuts to counter the sweetness Butternut squash was over cooked but the asparagus was perfect, maybe some fresh sage to wake up the dish Pretzel crusted chicken dish was good Bruschetta pasta was pretty good but way too much linguine to sauce

    Sadly the food quality, quantity, and variety was very poor. We were staying at the hotel and went for convenience and in hopes that it would be better than daily breakfast. Sadly it was not and the price (even tho we did get a discount) was way over priced. I’d be happier with a yummy patio doughnut. We will definitely try the patio or search out other breakfasts. I’m glad we didn’t dine here for other meals. Love staying at hotel but breakfast is awful. We were first ones in to dine and food was cold. Pastries were soggy so obviously not fresh but thawed from frozen. Fruit was not ripe. Only biscuits no toast. The juice was watered down too. Food was bland. Basically added chicken, green beans, bland pieces of salmon on rice, and some sliced beef to free breakfast selection. We enjoyed food last year better when we got a coupon to go to the other hotel. Not sure if they still have the same food as last year. Just offer the free breakfast…which was exactly what it was worth. The free breakfast was really bad too. Most items ran out quickly, took a long time to refill and some never replaced. Stop watering down the juice. Sorry…it was really bad! Skip it!
