    Beautiful restaurant and setting, music was incredible. Chicken francese and duck fettuccine was sub par for $35-38 , they would not allow any substitutions and to share a plate is an extra $18 charge. Lobster bisque was good. Overall nice place but pricey for quality. Service wasn’t great either. Would come back for cocktails. Unfortunately restaurant did not live up to the hype.

    Stunning setting overlooking Lake George. Combination of votive candles and twinkling lights made it especially attractive as the dark of evening descended. Those things combined with music with French lyrics, excellent food and service made for an especially nice evening.

    AMAZING experience! I tried the seafood tower for the first time and I LOVED it. For dinner, I got the chefs cut which was the NY strip and it was the BEST steak I ever had! Can’t wait to be back July 2nd :)

    Just dined at The Chateau on the Lake…as usual it never disappoints. Our waiter Adam was very personable as well as very knowledgeable about the menu. We started with the seafood tower which was very fresh, had a lot of variety and was amazing. We each ordered the beet salad which was very creative and tasty. My wife ordered the Red Snapper. I tried a bite, it was mouth watering. I had the châteaubriand, it was cooked perfectly medium rare just as I ordered it and was so tender and delicious. The Domain Faively wine selection was very impressive. We weren’t planning on desert, but Adam told us we had to try the chocolate flourless…it was outrageous. Great food, ambiance and service, will be back soon.

    How fun!! Walked in and was greeted by Nicole who took great care of us. We went to the bar to eat bc we didn't have reservations. We took multiple cocktails to the fire pits for about an hour. Mark and Jordan make AMAZING cocktails and are great to talk with. When we came back in to eat at the bar (bc we didn't have reservations) Nicole had found us a quiet table to enjoy. Our server Christine was GREAT, She knew alot about the menu and place. And the food OUTSTANDING, we waited a little (which we knew we would be we were walking in) and the wait was WORTH EVERY MINUTE. We had the Chateau Brion and Chicken!! Both juicy and cooked perfect. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this is going to be the summer Spot! Make your reservations early!!

    As owner of numerous successful restaurants in Manhattan, I can say I know a fair thing about customer service and the restaurant industry. The fact that I am leaving this review in the first place, is saying something. This was my third time at this establishment, and it has gotten worse every time. Opening weekend, we had a party of 4 and waited an hour and 30 minutes for our main courses. Extremely small portions and extremely high prices. Which I wouldn’t mind if the food had actually been good- it was sub par at best. Soggy chicken fraincaise, canned beetroot and cold grilled chicken on salad (which was a $18 charge just to add chicken). Inexperienced wait staff, no fault of their own but very obvious terrible management. The one thing they do have is a lovely view of the lake, apart from that you will leave hungry, unhappy and out of pocket.

    We had a great first experience here at The Chateau. Dined outdoors under the tent and would have been just as happy on the patio, deck, or even inside if the weather wasn't gorgeous. Our server was attentive, the bartender made a mocktail and a few great cocktails, and the food was really good too. Would love to dine here again.

Definitely recommend coming for a date night, no kids and enjoy a relaxing long multi course meal. We took our waitresses advice and we did not regret anything!! She was very knowledgeable could tell she had been there awhile even though she was young. She made our night from start to finish. We are definitely coming back!! And telling all of our friends!
