    Absolutely incredible!!! The food was flawless and I was so happy that I was able to find the menu online ahead of time, made it super user friendly to be able to play my dinner well. Couldn’t decide what night to book but I saw that The Lookout was having Billy Wiseman perform! So I just couldn’t miss it. He’s so incredible and his energy was so perfect for the evening. Our server Savannah was so kind and knowledgeable and helpful! We shared the croquettes, risotto, bolognese, trout, and for dessert the rice pudding and tort. This food and ambience and service simply cannot be topped. Absolutely outstanding thank you!!!!

    It was a bit of a mediocre experience. The food was fine. Completely edible but not the usual WOW, I've come to expect from the Lookout. The menu was quite limited, only offered a 3 Course Listing, no bread service and extremely limited choices. My guest and I were not enthused by the choices. The menu was not available online prior to review but I assumed it would be great as my numerous previous times the food had been incredible. Had I known when booking the table I may have thought twice had I known the menu. Also if I had known that there was going to be live music. To be honest, it just didn't match the atmosphere of the restaurant. It was a gentleman from Nfld. Who is a perfectly fine performer just not what I was looking for. Again, wasn't aware there was going to be live music. I would suggest identifying on Open Table that these things are happening when patrons are booking. At least the wine was good.

    Julie our host and server is a star! Due to COVID the restaurant was following the current requirements and Julie was looking after everything for the front of house. Truly service from the heart with a welcoming drink to celebrate our anniversary and an overview of the set menu and suggested wine pairings. The food was well prepared, with various levels of flavor, and pleasing to the eye presentation. The wines were well paired and jointly made this a meal to remember. Julies service ethos is warm and saw her energy to ensure all guests were being well looked after. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

    The Seafood Chowder was absolutely amazing. Lots of seafood and fish. Nearly a meal by itself. The Risotto was very good, however, the Calamari was a disappointment to my wife as it had some weird panko like breading, not the traditional tempura style. Service was superb. I highly recommend the restaurant.

    Considering that the Gray Monk is a world famous winery, their restaurant is subpar. Limited menu and mediocre food, my entree was very salty. Music was a little loud and it felt like we were eating in a cafeteria. Service was good, friendly staff and the food came out rather quick.

    Outstanding meal!! Will definitely come here again. Ambiance isn’t great but we came at night so couldn’t see the view. A little candle or two in the tables would go a long way. Kid friendly so head’s up for those that want a quiet experience. Still, fabulous cuisine and our favourite wines!!

    Service was excellent, unfortunately we didn’t realize it was a set menu for supper. The venue was difficult to find as the driveway from the road is not lit and very dark at night. The restaurant is also hard to find once on site in the dark, go down the stairs to the right outside.

    We had the 3 course dinner with wine pairing. The restaurant is serving a set dinner special for the month of November and December. We deliberately picked different dinner course items so we could try the different dishes. All our dishes and wines were well presented, tasty and paired well. The servers were professional and friendly. We had a lovely evening out. Highly recommend to go for a special occassion; definitely a good value.

    It was overall a wonderful time. Food was delicious. Hard to choose because everything sounded so good but I eventually chose the seafood risotto and I'm glad I did. Free mini glass of Rose Brut at the beginning which was a lovely surprise, and an extensive wine menu. Our server was so kind and very knowledgeable (Carlee?? I hope that's right!).

    Been to Gray Monk restaurant a few times now. This place is virtually unbeatable in the summer, great views, amazing food, great patio, great drinks, amazing service. Would recommend to anyone in the summer. However, I just had an outing here in the colder month of October. The patio was closed in, to extend the restaurant seating. Normally this isn’t a huge deal, but the way it has been done is very poor in relation to how great this restaurant usually is. They had everyone seated in this patio extension, the seating was still outdoor patio furniture which was not comfortable at all (at least add some cushions), the lighting was fluorescent and cold feeling, and the enclosed pergola they had set up felt a lot like being under a pop up canvas tent at an event, what was left of the view could be kind of enjoyed through the plastic windows hemmed into the roll down barrier. In conclusion I will most definitely refrain from visiting again until the patio is re-opened for the warm summer months. They can do better here for the winter set up, it’s a shame they’ve done this because everything else about this place is amazing.

    Hello BC 29 Thanks for taking the time to leave a detailed review of your visit. Due to C19 table restrictions we are still relying on our enclosed heated patio to ensure we have space for everyone, socially distanced. Depending on the weather and number of reservations, we decide daily if the walls are up or down, patio open or closed. Sounds like you visited us a on a cooler day where we prioritized our guest's comfort by enclosing the patio. Sincerely, Michaela Senkiw Restaurant Manager

    We ordered steelhead trout and it was perfectly done and the hollandaise sauce was unique and delicious. I tried to get the recipe from the server..top secret! Our server Kara was excellent! The lighting was a bit bright and no candles and the outdoor seating walls to high and blocked the view of the vineyards and most of lake which did not show on the website only the summer view, I was disappointed with the ambience and background music not audible.

    Hi Linda Thanks for taking the time to leave a detailed review - I'm glad you enjoyed you meal and service from Kara. This time of the year we do have to enclose the patio in order keep everyone warm while still extending our busy season into October. I regret to hear that this was the catalyst to you not leaving a better review. Hopefully you can join us in the summer months when the patio is completely open.

    The view supports the Lookout" name. Table spacing is spacious providing privacy and quiet. Our server was polite although not very outgoing, though the associate server was much more engaging and friendly. The menu selection would suit most palates with vegetarian, seafood and meat offerings. The pricey dishes were presented well and had thought out accompaniments but lacked in flavor, the seafood risotto as an example was bland, and the portions were satisfying. Dessert selection is small and the coffee warm. When departing, no one thanked us for coming, bid us adieu or welcomed us to come again.

    Or experience from start to finish was lovely. Booking was easy on line and when we thought we may be a few minutes late and called it was no problem at all. We were celebrating a birthday and there was a lovely acknowledgment of that and some bubbly which was unexpected and very appreciated. Service was delightful and personable and our table and view were wonderful. And the food and wine were great!
