    Nothing bad just lacklustre. My English breakfast was hi-hum. Two eggs, very crispy bacon, one small breakfast sausage which looked very wrinkled and sorry for itself, potatoes that were a little over cooked. A grilled tomato or some mushrooms would have been nice. There was simply no love. The sort of food I’d expect at a cheap cafe. Our table didn’t have a view so it wasn’t worth the drive from the village.

    Great service. The lobster pasta was amazing. The strip loin was also perfect according to my friend. The desserts could use some work —- something simple like apple pie and ice cream is always nice to see in a dessert list. I had the chocolate mousse and it was too sweet and too fancy. A nice fluffy and chilled mousse is far superior in my opinion.

    we booked anniversary dinner on a Tues @6 for inside table, DR empty on arrival yet hostess seated us at a table with a view of the WALL.... asked to move to the adjacent lake view table and she was at a loss what to do. She knew we had a anniversary too. place was mostly empty until 90 min later.... she mumbled something about a big booking but that never arrived. strange. food was OK, but prime rib steak was a disaster - tough and stringy. Confit was good, but overdone to the point of dry. Overall a disappointment as we have been here many times over the years. Waiter was fantastic however, so that made up for a lot of miscues. I used to recommend people to NLL, now not so sure I'd do it again. Red Door Bistro better food (but no AC) and Rimrock too (but no views) Rj

    Food and location are excellent. But the overall service experience was bad and slow. Initial welcome was strange as restaurant has 2 parts, one can be booked with open table and the larger area cannot be booked. Here is first come first serve but you have to wait even if 70% of seats are empty and free. Sparkling mineral water was out so no chance to drink good tasting water with an expensive wine.

    Waitress immediately wanted our drink, appies and entree order. Didn't come back and ask if we wanted another drink. Didn't order wine but wine glasses were not removed from table. Did not receive sharing plates for appies. Had to ask for dessert menu on our own. It was our 5yr anniversary dinner and they were aware but it did not feel special.

    Beautiful location right on Nita Lake. Service was very slow (took at least 10 minutes for a server to come to our table and another 10 minutes to get a couple of drinks). If it wasn't for the extraordinary view of the lake from our table, I would've been very unhappy. Food was surprisingly average in presentation and flavour. Lava cake for dessert was the best part of the whole meal. Overall, I was disappointed considering this is the dining room at a major resort lodge. Would not recommend or go back.

    This was my first dining experience at Nita Lake Lodge in quite some time and I have to say that I was very disappointed with the service. Our table was right beside the server's station and we were constantly walked by without being checked on, asked if we needed anything or even to refill water. I can completely understand if the restaurant was busy but it was not busy at all, neither inside nor outside. None of the staff were attentive or even personable when we would ask for assistance, which I found quite odd. It felt instead like we were a bother when we were asking for water or salt. The brunch was fairly good, nothing to ring home about. The lattes were delicious so I wanted a second one but again, I had to go up to the server station to ask for it since we were not checked on whatsoever. I'm always understanding if a server says "so sorry for the delay, we have 'x' going on so I haven't been able to check on your as much as I would like" or something similar, but there was no explanation of the sort. Hopefully, it was just a bad day and not indicative of the experience all of the time!

    Food was good. Service was terrible. Waitress quit her shift just after we ordered as her boyfriend was there seated nearby and she wanted to have wine and food with him. She said we would be assigned to someone else. Order took forever and new waitress didn’t check on us for a long time. Finally asked and ordered never got out in. Then three of the 5 orders came out wrong. New waitress didn’t seem interested in helping us at all. Last time we eat there.

    Brought son here for his 7th birthday dinner. There is nothing special done by the restaurant with this knowledge, not that I was expecting anything. Both children had chicken strips, fries and 3 onion rings. I had vegan bolognese. The children didn't finish their meals as very heavy, nor did I. Theirs was the usual fried fare. As I cook vegetarian/vegan food every day, I have particular tastes for this culinary style. Therefore, it's understandable this vegetarian/vegan fare wasn't as flavourful as hoped, especially for $28. The portions were large if that's what you're looking for. I had to wait about 25 minutes for a ginger ale as syrup needed changing.

    As a vegetarian, I was interested to try the Eggplant "Steak" . While the roasted vegetables were very tasty, there was far too much finishing oil, far too much pepper in the "tomato fondue" and the chimichurri was very bitter. A disappointing vegatarian option and with no protein included. However, our starters, my husband's rigatoni and our desserts were excellent.

    We went to this beautiful restaurant with lovely lakeview setting for breakfast. I didn't catch when making the booking that the kitchen would close 15 minutes after the time of our reservation, which made ordering fairly rushed. (Reservation was at 10:45, kitchen closed at 11:00 am.) We arrived 2-3 min. late, which really made things move along quickly! Anyway, our waitress was wonderful and very apologetic that we needed to order right away to be able to eat because of this. (I'm so sorry I didn't catch her name. She is from Chile, originally. She needs to be given lots of kudos for the memorable service she provided!) The food was good - not nearly as great as the service though. Once we finished eating, it was time to vacate as the restaurant was closing, but our waitress offered us a nice spot on the deck to have our coffee, turning on the heater above the settee to keep us toasty as we enjoyed the view of the lake. Gotta say, whoever is doing the hiring in Nita Lake Lodge is doing a superb job. Everyone we came across, from the doorman, to the dock attendant to the wait staff were AMAZING, helpful and welcoming. Thank you so much for a memorable time!

    While the food (our main courses only) was excellent, that was the only saving grace of our evening. We were the only patrons for an early dinner for quite a while and service was much slower than I would have expected. We waited a long time for everything. Also for ambiance considering the fine dining price tag the servers were too casual wearing shorts and jeans. I know I sound old and im not but they were dressed for a pub scene. I would not go back considering the other much better fine dining options in creekside. Disappointing as I was excited to try this place.

    It’s a few years since we last dined here & we won’t be going back. The restaurant wasn’t busy but it took half an hour for our drinks to arrive & over an hour before we got food, when we were the only people in the restaurant. The service was appalling, we had to refill our own wine glasses several times. The menu was limited & not clear what exactly in the dish so I ordered something I realized I couldn’t eat when it arrived. This was a birthday dinner so very disappointing.

    The view overlooking the lake is breathtaking. The staff were very sweet and let us have a cocktail on the patio before moving inside for dinner. They even lit the gas firepit for us making for a romantic and serene moment. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. We didn't stay at the lodge. Just had dinner there. I would definitely return!

    Good ambiance, great service but food was subpar- We order the three course dinner: Appetizer- rice balls were nice; mussels were not nice at all; funny texture of muscles; lots of oil in the sauce; sauce not tasty; we are few and did not finish. Mains- we had chicken and salmon; it was ok; chicken bit dry; Dessert - we hr cherry bomb and avocado cheesecake; cheesecake was nice but cherry Bomb was bad - grainy chocolate mousse inside; hard chocolate candy; not very nice textures and flavour wise - we didn’t finish. Would not go again as that’s few too many items that we didn’t eat.
