    Lovely setting by the lake. My shrimp tacos were perfect and the mimosa bar was fun and attractive. Waitress was congenial and listened and responded to any requests. (substitute scrambled for poached eggs and dressing on side) Will return.

    The food was very good. Seems the portions were very small though for the price. Also, we did not like the fact that the 20% gratuity was already included especially when we were just a group of 4.

    The fried shrimp and salmon were outstanding. A little disappointed in a $45 NY strip ordered medium that came to the table with no pink and very much so well done. It was a beautiful atmosphere and staff were friendly. We will go back for sure but maybe no steak next time.

    Meal and service was great. Not sure the igloo dining was worth $10 per person. Paying the bill at the end was a little awkward as the waitress stands there while you pay right after telling you the tip was already added to the bill. It was awkward because you don’t get to see a physical receipt and the little computer still asks for a tip even though you were just told the tip was already added.

    We had a fabulous time eating in the igloo at sunset! It was very romantic and felt like our own world. The food was great as usual!l It was super cold outside so maybe the heater had to work harder to keep up, but we would have liked it to be a bit warmer. The heater was on its highest setting. Other than that 5 stars!

    Dinner started off great. After receiving our food, our waitress disappeared. We were dining in the igloo so my husband had to go inside to search for someone else to help us with getting additional drinks and ordering desserts. Fortunately, another waitress came in and saved my birthday dinner. She was wonderful! I wish the automatic gratuity could go straight to her. Please make waiters/waitresses aware that someone should communicate to their tables if their shift is over or they're no longer going to be serving us. That nearly ruined our night.

    Unfortunately, we feel as though the food here was very overpriced for its quality. Each item was majorly lacking in flavor and after waiting for 45 minutes to be served, it was such a disappointment. Also, the elevator music that they play in the restaurant creates a really weird vibe.

    It had been a while since our last time dining here, but we'd received a gift card. Full disclosure - everything we ate (we had the rockfish and the chicken breast) was outstanding, could not have been happier. Also even in winter, the atmosphere is great. Regrettably, we ran into an issue with the service. At the end of our meal, the server asked if we "were ready to pay," at which point my husband handed her the gift card. Note, we weren't asked if we'd like the check or presented with the check at any point. She returned stating that we owed about $13. No problem, we knew the gift card wasn't covering the entire meal, we handed her a $50. She returned with about $13 - our change. After we managed to flag down a different server to locate our original server, we explained that she'd brought us back the exact amount that we'd been told we owed - our change from the $50 should have been about $36. Fine - that's a mistake anyone in a hurry might make. We trued everything up and bounced. Then at 9pm, a manager called me to let me know that they needed me to pay our bill. She indicated that we hadn't been charged for one of the entrees and needed to pay more towards a check that had ever been disclosed.

    We chose to dine in the winter Igloo for our anniversary dinner. It was very romantic and peaceful. Our server, William, was awesome. He was very friendly and attentive. What a nice change from the pretty awful service at just about every place we have dined lately. We started with the Crab and Artichoke dip and for entrees the Filet and a Crab and Asparagus Pizza. As always, the food was yummy, and the Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay was fabulous. The Boathouse at Sunday Park is a favorite of ours, and we will be back.

    It’s a beautiful location but definitely the service is not what you should get for type of dinning, it was very rushed, gratuity was included, which I don’t mind, but it made it seem as there was no need for actual service because the tip is included.

    Service was slow. We got there and were seated right away, but waited 10 minutes for menus. Then when we were moving between appetizers to entree and entree to dessert we had to ask several times for plates and glasses to be cleared. No one wants to eat dessert next to a dirty dinner pate with shrimp tails, etc. Food was great!
