So I have always wanted to try the coq au vin and I am so sorry I even thought about it. The chicken had a weird taste to it the sauce was not that good either it was just an awful dish. so the waitress offered us another meal and we got salmon the roasted salmon it was really dry but a step up from the coq au vin. I say take that off the menu it is awful I’m talking about the coq au vin. The salad was good and the desert

Happy to see a new “high end” restaurant in the KK area of Osage Beach. Wonderful views, great service, but the $$ of the meals was out of line with the quality presented on our plate. Perhaps it was because we were at th3 last seatin* of the year. Looking forward to trying this again next Spring.

Every meal our group had was delicious. Especially the steak and fretes. The girl serving us was super sweet and attentive and the view (other than the folks in the pool next door) was really pretty. Even though it was Saturday of Labor Day weekend they managed the crowd and we sat outside which was more comfortable with Covid still being an issue.

We arrived a few minutes early to our reservation and were shown to a table for 4; our reservation was for 5. After adding another chair and being seated, we were provided one menu. Someone poured water for us and brought us another place sitting for the extra chair. Then we sat... and sat... and sat. For over 20 minutes, other tables around us were seated, drink orders placed, food orders placed, while we sat. We made eye contact with several servers, but it did no good. After 20 minutes, we left. Amazingly, the hostess didn't seem to care. Bummer that this was the way we spent my wife and daughter's birthday. We went up the road and were treated to a spectacular dinner.

Waited an hour for the meal and not up to par with real fine dining. Food quality was more hotel than restaurant.
Good service but too slow, and $48.00 for a steak is highway robbery.
Hard to find and no parking due to Shootout crowd. Won’t go back.

Thank you all very much for making my mom’s birthday a night to remember. Our waitress, Kelly, was extremely attentive and such a sweetheart. She even brought us roses! On top of her excellent service my mom raved about the filet. It was a lovely evening and we plan to stop by again on another visit. :)

The only negative was that a party of 13 was seated near us and the noise level became very loud at times. We choose Windrose Marker 26 to have a quiet dining experience.

Wonderful waitress. Only issue was my salmon was raw in the middle. Steak, potatoes, wedge salad and wine was wonderful. Nice touch is the rose.

The meal was best that we had for our whole trip and the best that I have had in a long time. The duck could have been cooked a little longer. But overall it was a very pleasant experience. The rose given to my wife was a classy touch.

Decided to try this highly recommended restaurant at our resort. The service & food lived up to the recommendations. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly, the fish was very fresh & moist, & surrounded by lots of interesting veggies. Only suggestion is to reduce the sweetness of the pea purée. The others all got the ribeye, each was cooked as specified. Waitress was attentive & personable. We sat outside & were nicely serenaded by the live music from the tiki bar!

We had a table reservation for 5 initially and needed to add an additional person. They were very accommodating. Our waitress Kim was very professional and she took very good care of us. Two of the guests had already ordered a couple of appetizers. The duck confit was RIDICULOUS! Highly recommend this app. I ordered the Halibut and was very impressed with it flavors and the presentation. A couple had the Salmon, they were raving about how good it was.
I can't wait for next year's conference.

Gone is the elegance of the old Windrose Room. Decor is bland, unimaginative, and filled with guys in wife beater shirts and backwards ball caps. It's family dining, which includes unrestrained toddlers running around the tables. A different era!

We had a very enjoyable dinner with a good view. Our server did a wonderful job. It is very convenient for any staying at the resort because you don’t have to get in your car. On balance, it was nice and we’d definitely return.

1st time to dine here & we will be back. It was our anniversary & we had a table by the window w/wonderful pool/lake view. My husband was able to have a ribeye while I had the cauliflower steak. I’m so glad to find a fine dining restaurant that offers vegetarian main course options!!!
Soup to nuts was perfection!!! Our waitress was awesome too!!!!! Will def return again!!!

The food was amazing! Service was outstanding! We dined here for a bachelorette dinner, and couldn’t ask for a better night. The restaurant honored our requests for a surprise cake and champagne for the bride to be. We would definitely dine here again.

We have been dining at WindRose for many years and have always had an incredible experience. I hesitated to write this because I didn’t want to let the secret out, but decided it was better to share and help out the restaurant and staff. They had to close last year during Covid because they are a smaller establishment and couldn’t afford to keep it open with all the restrictions. They are back and better than ever this year! We dined on some of their new dishes and some of their classics, and it was all delicious!! The mushroom ravioli appetizer and the mushroom salad with the warm bacon dressing are a must try! For entrees I had the half rack of lamb with a tomato couscous salad that was superb! My husband had the scallops, which were cooked perfectly. And for dessert, we had the classic creme brûlée and the banana foster cheesecake. Both were very good, but the cheesecake is another must try! Our server, Kelly, was friendly, very attentive, and helpful with questions we had about the menu items. We can not wait to go back!

Our experience was excellent. Our server was super attentive and efficient. The food was excellent with a lovely view of the lake. The piped in piano music could have only been better if it was a live performer. I would strongly recommend Windrose Marker 26.
