An outstanding meal, the ragu and ceaser salad were excellent and the sirloin was prepared to perfection. We wished we could have sat upstairs

Smallish neighborhood high end restaurant. Tables are nicely spaced. Food is above average. It’s a little on the expensive side, but especially during these times it is totally understandable.

Few restaurants in the Cities live up to their high priced menus, in terms of the actual food, in my humble-but-foodie opinion. The Lake Room is one of them. It's all about the food quality--but then, It's not. From the hostesses, to the servers, to the chefs, it's nothing less than outstanding. I haven't felt that way about a restaurant in at least a decade. Go, if you haven't. It's worth it. Make a reservation and go very early, if you're trying to socially distance. (They've done a pretty good job with that, as well!)

Menu here is very good and the food is also very good. Excellent little place that was sorely needed in the village of Navarrre. My only complaint about the food is that the chimichurri has far too much vinegar which made all the other flavors disappear. Mussels appetizer was really good. Steak was perfection and little to no salt which is a sign of a real pro chef. Salmon was great with a wonderful dipping sauce with citrus notes.

We both enjoyed our dinners (seabass and salmon) and definitely would order them again. I loved the mozzarella risotto cake and the champagne beurre blanc made me want to lick the plate clean! And the key lime pie was a delicious way to end our meal!

The food was fabulous as always - our group enjoyed the unparalleled Lake Room burger, sumptuous mussels and a delicious short rib and garlic mashed potatoes. The staff was professional, a visit from the talented chef most welcome, and it was the perfect place to enjoy an evening of fine food and friendship.

Our Server Tom was wonderful!
My Daughter had the Wedge Salad which he enjoyed very much!
I didn’t care for the Tuna Tar-Tar; but had never had it before. It wasn’t on your side, it just wasn’t for my palate.
Great Everthing about the Lake Room; keep doing what you all do!

Biggest concern was that they seemed to be at full capacity with what looked like their normal # of tables and patrons, not any additional spacing in between as at other restaurants. Tables were chock full and bar was full - shoulder to shoulder (didn't look as if all from same party).

There was a large group celebrating a birthday with lots of hugging and what appeared to be a potential covid petri dish.

Re food: some (sea bass) was good, some (short rib and mashed potatoes) bland. The highly recommended onion dip app was inedible. No reason to sweeten that (no mention of honey or whatever on menu) - and when told, waiter agreed but didn't remove from bill.

Such a wonderful little gem. The menu is a delightful sampling of creative and tasty culinary offerings. They have good whiskey and spirits despite their size. The wine list could be a little better but the small, lake room ambience in the bar is what this place is all about.
