Sit and soak in the lake view while you taste fresh Florida seafood dishes, classics with a twist and a side of something you’ve never tried before. It’s Celebration’s best dining, surrounded in Florida’s natural wildlife.

Begin with a glass or bottle of our own Kessler blend. Taste a little something new. Enjoy the artful ambiance and storied setting. And we strongly recommend you don’t skip our signature dessert.

We went for the Magical Month of Dining as a party of 4. They added 18% gratuity without saying so upfront. As a matter of fact they didn't say so at all! The service was nowhere near 18% as she had to be reminded several times to refill our water, bring bread (that we had to pay for separately) and bring silverware. We addressed this with the manager and the response. was simply "the servers are supposed to tell you upfront". It is unacceptable to include gratuity on a small party! The food was not as great as I wanted it to be but the setting outside was very nice

First, no one seated up for the reservation. I asked a member of the waitstaff and they said just sit wherever. Very odd when you have a reservation, but we obliged. Then the wait begins. Almost 20 minutes pass before any waitstaff even acknowledged that we were even there. We order a wine and I had a bottle of beer requested. 15 minutes pass. Nothing. I ask another waitstaff member about it and we receive them. We then at the receipt of the drinks order dinner. 45 minutes pass and we can’t even find a waitstaff member. Finally we catch ours and ask. He states that they are swamped by the heavy rush of customers. I gaze around and see approximately 20 maybe 25 people in the restaurant! What rush? He walks of and them a few short minutes later our dinner arrives. Nothing to complain about of its quality nor compliment either. Reluctantly we order key lime pie a la mode and I ask if this is going to take long as well. Waitstaff reply’s that dessert doesn’t take long at all. 30 minutes pass! I go inside to the waitstaff desk and cancel the dessert. No manager was present to make a grievance. Horrible experience. The only comp received from this horrid experience was not being charged for dessert. Hotel was not reflective at all of the Bohemian culture or experience. It was a very, very disappointing experience.

Although I would recommend it, please choose when you go. On a Saturday evening they have a trumpet and trombone player which in such a small space is extremely loud. If you are looking to spend a romantic evening then this is not the place for you.

I booked a table as it was my husbands birthday and they did not have the table as I requested, so they were going to sit us right next to the trumpet and trombone player which we refused. So we had to wait for a party if people to leave before we could sit down.

Our order was taken, not by our server, and my husband's meal did not arrive as he ordered, so we didn't eat our food together. Our server was great but overall our experience was not. We have dined here several times before and would hesitate to do so again for a special occasion.

Magical dining on a Monday night, food good except for bone-in pork chop was sooo overdone. Did not request a fix since I ordered without specifying or asking about doneness. It wasn't awful, but you shouldn't serve a bone in chop that isn't at least a little pink near the bone. And even though the service was very good, and the ambiance fine...the name should be Lobbyside instead of Lakeside. Trying out new places is what I love about Magical Dining and I'm glad I gave Lakeside a try. The Classic Cosmo at $6 during Celebration Hour was so good, tart and refreshing, I wished I had ordered another.

Went for Magical Dining. This is the first participating restaurant that tacked an automatic 20% gratuity on Magical Dining.

The food was tssty and the portion sizes were appropriate

The musical entertainment on the patio was WAY TOO LOUD. I would not expect to have to shout to have dinner conversation at a two-top.

Food was good once I got it. They brought my dinner companions meal a failed to bring mine. Being the gentleman that he was he refused to eat until mine came, which was 15 minutes later, and his meal was now cold. Waitress also brought him the wrong drink on two occasions. Clearly she was not listening to the answer when she asked a question. I fully understand that mistakes happen, but the restaurant made no Goodwill gesture compensate for their mistakes.

Food wasn’t bad but it certainly wasn’t good. All the meats we ordered were over cooked and lamb wasn’t supposed to come with squash but came with sweet potato, which i don’t eat. the server never came back to check on us so we ended up eating it anyway. The lamb chops were the smallest chops I’ve ever been served in a restaurant for that price point. Service was very slow for the restaurant being quite empty. So much so that after ordering a birthday dessert that the server insisted we have because it was “on him”, I had to go inside and ask the hostess for our check because the server disappeared for over 20 minutes. Wouldn’t return. Unfortunate, because the restaurant and view are quite lovely.

I rarely think of eating at hotels but why not? We wanted al fresco (in July!) and they were able to accommodate in a lovely area overlooking the lake with shade umbrellas. We only had soup and a sandwich, and I had a cocktail, so it was very reasonable. My Moscow Mule was well made and my husbamd raved about his BLT. The only downside was service was a little slow. Overall though a very pleasant experience and you can’t beat the view. Although perhaps an 8 pm reservation to beat the heat would be best right now.

This restaurant has an absolutely fantastic menu. But the real treasure is the service. Michelle and the entire staff takes care of every single detail. Andrew at the front desk, Ernst in the kitchen. Such personal service.
My stay at the hotel was excellent and I dined here 2 times.
The hotel decor and art gallery is a bonus! Very cool atmosphere.

Highly recommend staying in this wonderful town at the bohemian. So much to offer. Lakeside bar and grill will be your favorite spot to just chill and enjoy dinner and drinks.

I was very disappointed in Brunch. All the meat in carving station was cold and hard. Was really not brunch as little breakfast options. Everything was self service yet a 20 percent gratuity was added to check. Extremely overpriced. I would have paid less in Disney and received more. Very disappointed. Ate here Christmas Eve and had a wonderful meal

Got married here 5 years ago and it is still amazing! The location is gorgeous and the food is heavenly. I had the Lamb Chops while my Husband had the Mediterranean Salmon. The Manager Ernie knew who we were and made us feel super special to celebrate our anniversary. The entire staff came by and congratulated us on 5 years and it was super special to us. They truly blew my mind with everything they did for us. They had a Jazz music night on Saturday April 13th and that is why it was a little loud more than the norm. But we sat inside and still got to enjoy each other and the live jazz band. I cant wait to come back again and dine here! Thank you Bohemian for letting us relive our wedding night! You all blew our minds with your kindness & hospitality.

We are two women who’ve been friends for a long long time but live in different areas and rarely see each other. Even though neither of us had been there, we chose Celebration because it was about midway between our locations. I chose Bohemian because it offered outdoor seating lakeside. I was very pleased with the serene setting. We only had lunch salads but they were good. We would meet there again next time.

If you have a party larger than 4, prepare for disappointment. We had a party of 13. They told us things would come out staggered, so fair enough. But two meals came out wrong. Another was sent back and then forgot about for 40 minutes. We ordered a second round of drinks and waited 20 minutes. The place was not crowded. Then we had to tackle someone to get a check. The manager was more interested in defending his point of view than in making things right. Food was good, though, if you are willing to put up with staff who don't really know how to run a restaurant.
