                        My second time to The Lake House. I brought a friend for her birthday lunch. We loved the food, interesting "scrub" drinks and the lovely ambiance. The service was great and it was pretty quite compared to the first visit. Spring Break.

                        Our server was not as attentive throughout the meal as we are used to in the wonderful city of Bellevue. It is not the norm experience for us to wave/flag down the server for coffee / ice tea refills and condiments. As a clue to the server of our disappointment, we left only a 10% tip, which is unusual for a 20% + tipper!!! The food was superb and that is why we would definitely recommend Lakehouse as a must dining experience!!! Thank you for including us in your survey. Much Aloha, Hawaii Visitors

                        This was my first time at the Lake House and I loved it. We were early to meet friends so sat at the bar for a drink-both drinks were amazing and unique. The bar tender was very knowledgeable and passionate about mixology. They infuse their own alcohol and create great seasonal drinks. The atmosphere was comfortable clean and bright. We sat at one of the tables in the middle, I was a bit jealous of the cozier looking chairs next to the wall tables but other than that it was fine seating and easy to hear each other. The food was really good, we order the shareable filet meal and it was cooked perfectly, I make kale almost daily at home and the side of kale was delicious and a really big portion so I was very happy. I had bites of everyone else's meals as well and they were equally as delicious. The black cod melts in your mouth and the flavors they chose to put with the black cod complimented it wonderfully. I only gave value a 3 because it is Bellevue....you pay Bellevue/Lincoln Tower prices no matter where you go. But it was worth every penny.

                        The menu seems to be very energetic and different so we were excited. The best thing we had was the cauliflower. We had the octopus, it was ok, nothing new. One of the guest had the salmon she seemed to like it. My scallops started off good, but there was a hair in it 😳. My husbands steak and the other gentleman’s steak were over cooked. Now these issues were solved pretty rapidly. We ended up buying another bottle of wine, and adding dessert. We also ordered the grits to go with the meal, but was forgotten until the end and was boxed up for us. The grits and scallop meal was comped. For the amount we spent just disappointed that it wasn’t all that great of a meal.

                        It was our first time and we did not know what to expect. The service was excellent and the server explained the menu thoroughly and was very passionate about the food and the chef. We ordered the roasted Cauliflower appetizer which was amazing. Followed by a ragetoni and seafood pasta dish that was Extremely flavorful an satisfying. We shared the scallops and it was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. Everything was so tasty that we did not half to add any salt. The only problem I have is that every dish is very pricey and for those prices you would think you are in a fancy, high-end restaurant which lake house does not look or feel like. So, it’s amazing food and diner style seating and it’s priced like an expensive restaurant.

                        It is not a first time we dined at Lakehouse and every time I would give a five star rating. The menu is ever changing with few staples and I am always glad to try new dishes. It is always superb. And fast enough, as we were heading to a movie afterwards. Highly recommended. Pudding is still my favorite desert. :)

                        We thought the food was marginal at best and so way over priced for what we got. The salmon and the chicken were flavorless, the risotto was ok, but not great. The drinks were good, but I don't think we would go back or recommend.

                        Loud, bright, and looks like a Restoration Hardware store inside; but I guess that's what you should expect when you dine inside a mall. Appetizers were good, entree was large and very good, but wow was it expensive ($46 for a pork chop). I guess if you have to bring clients there it's a good choice.

                        Food was tasty and creative - however we could not eat everything (generous)! Bit noisy when we were there (Friday 7 pm) and we were quite cosy for our party of 7 on a banquette. Would have liked the plates to be timed in sequence, instead of all at once, but we did not specifically ask for that. Definitely recommend but take some pals with good appetites to be able to try a number of dishes.

                        Decor and layout are nice. Service was good and the food was well done but on the pricey side for what you get. Lettuce wraps were a bit sad - flecks of crab, pineapple slices and a watered down sauce. Worth trying again though.

                        Food had small portions for the price. The cauliflower was the highlight and we ordered many items to share. The hostess asked us to pay the bill because she had another reservation.

                        Service wasn’t great. Our waiter forgot about our order and didn’t submit it which kept us a long time without food and resulted in being late for our next meetings. Was disappointing as this restaurant was rated so highly and I was excited to try it.

                        Hard to find, but what a surprise! The brunch options were unique and flavorful. We will return to The Lakehouse the next time we visit Seattle.

                        I’ve been here for Brunch with the spouse and Dinner with my dear friend. Both times we have had wonderful service by knowledgeable and friendly folks. For this review, I’ll focus on the dinner which was all vegetarian and superb! The flavors and variety was amazing. Hands down our favourite was the curried cauliflower but as this is my comfort dish, their beet deviled eggs were magical and so creamy. Our guide for the meal also made wonderful suggestions for the right bottle of Riesling to accompany our dinner. It’s pricy but for the quality, service, and portions, I find it worth it. They do have meat courses too, but we were just catching up and gorged on apps and reisling.

The presentation is unique and creative, and the taste is delicious! I love having another local farm-to-table option for dinning out in Bellevue. Highly recommend - you will not be disappointed.

                        We had a business lunch with 4 persons. Lunch was good. Portions were bigger than we expected. The menu seemed to be trying to be exotic and ended up being a little confusing. All four of enjoyed the food.

                        Went there for the first time for a date night with the boyfriend. Our server his name is Oscar he's very friendly helped me to choose a cocktail drink for me it was Blood orange margarita was good. We start with some appetizers deviled local ranch eggs and grilled octopus. And for our entrees, Manhattan cut prime new york and I got the seafood pasta. My boyfriend liked the steak and he said it was really good, the pasta I got it was tasty too. The restaurant decoration I really like it, it's a relaxing kinda restaurant.

My only critique of the restaurant based on our experience was the host staff. The host staff was not friendly and did not seem like they were happy to be working that day. Other than that, the experience was good.

Service is very casual and very friendly , ready to help you anytime and almost for everything with their advice and suggestion . I miss the Bread Rolls of the last few times , even if the Brioche Rolls were good but still they are not a real bread . Hopefully i will find them next time :) ...Thanks.
