My friends and I had a really lovely experience. Service was timely and professional. Atmosphere was charming and the food was delicious. I recommend the red snapper over lobster risotto. And I’m a bourbon kinda girl so the Smoke on the Water was not only the best presented drink, but the best tasting. Would highly recommend.
Dined there yesterday during the thunderstorm, so we couldn’t dine outside and the storm knocked out their computers but they made it work. Kevin was our server and took great care of us. The oysters were fresh and amazing so was the chicken dish.
We will be back on our next visit upstate.
Dined here last night! What a beautiful restaurant and Kevin was wonderful. We ordered the chateaubriand and the pork and both were delicious. Highly highly recommend!
What a wonderful experience. This is our second year coming to this location, and I’m so happy we returned. The rain made outdoor seating unavailable, but the inside of the restaurant is just as beautiful. It feels as if I was having dinner over at a friends house. Food was excellent, and staff friendly and attentive.
It was a great overall experience. We recommend it.
A great experience. Deserves all the accolades. Sat outside and the service with Alex was exceptional. The atmosphere in the evening was as advertised, romantic. After dinner drink sitting by the wood fire was perfect. A must if you are in the Bolton area.
Great atmosphere! Best food in lake george!!!!! Will definitely go back!
Service was slow at all points from beginning to end which was unfortunate. We noticed at one point a different table asking the host where their waiter was after being seated and not seeing anyone for over 5 minutes. For the price, things need to be on point and it just wasn't a good experience. My wife and I got two different steak types and they mixed up the cooking types. We didn't want to wait even longer to correct. Drink orders took a while, and dessert + drinks after meal did not come timely. Finally, the check took 10 minutes to come back after giving our card.
Nice, quiet location, excellent cocktails, the lunch menu was limited but we’ll-executed. Would definitely go there again.
Perfect on every level.
The food was absolutely AMAZING! The service was great, everyone was so nice! It’s such a great environment to be in, I’m definitely coming back! :)
Outstanding food and cant beat the ambiance. Only negative is parking is limited to a 30 spaces in lot. Would not suggest wearing high heels as walk to restaurant is gravel & stone on incline.
Today is my wife’s birthday so I decided to experience The Chateau.
I did my research and I found my research to be on point.
My wife had the chicken francese with the sides. She said it was perhaps the best she’s ever had. I had the chateaubriand with sides. I have to say that our epicurean tastes are spoiled from now on. The staff are very attentive and on point. No one can compare or compete with this chef and the ambiance.
Atmosphere was excellent, choices were varied a little pricey but worth it.
One item on dessert menu was unavailable. Would highly recommend for guests looking for a chic, high end delicious dinner!
Beautiful restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere and service . The food is average.
Sat us outside on a dirty patio. Caterpillar and red ant crawled on me. Dirty broom and broken tables and other ugly things all around. Women with cane fell coming down stairs and broke a candle , wzit staff tripped twice on uneven patio. Do not sit outside. Music kept getting interrupted by commercials = tacky. Bread was stale. Wrong wine brought to me. Small portions . Hostesses dressed in jeans and tank tops . For the price, expected some more class
Date and birthday night. We had a beautiful table overlooking the water on the porch. Great cocktails, great service and great food made for a fantastic evening!
This is a great venue. It’s an ideal setting for a romantic evening on Lake George; excellent food, staff (Morgan & Johnny) and live but subtle live entertainment.
Great spot, always like going there Buddy and Jen are fantastic. As well as the whole staff!
Amazing from the moment we walked in. The food was on point. Love the music they play and the ambiance. The waitress was amazing and so sweet. We will be back in August for sure. We walked out of here so stuffed and satisfied.
Lovely night, it was very quite night. All our food was exceptional. The calamari was superb. Laina took great care of us, can’t wait to come back. It was our anniversary she made us feel very special.
Lovely setting. A very nice special occasion restaurant.
Thank you for the 5 stars they are much appreciated.
Truly a fine dining experience. Everything was perfect.
Thank you for the 5 stars they are much appreciated.
Host was little arrogant. Sat outside in back corner in uncomfortable chairs
Sorry to see the two stars, And I apologize if I came off as arrogant to you on your visit. We do hope you will give us another chance to make it up to you.
This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The service was fantastic, the view were amazing and the food was out of this world!! Highly recommend and have already booked another reservation!
Christine, Thank you for the 5 stars they are much appreciated. So glad you enjoyed your service and food! We look forward to your next visit.
Thank you for the 5 stars they are much appreciated.
I very much enjoyed dinner the other night. The food was delicious. The tuna tartar was well prepared. The avocado could have been more seasoned. Otherwise a good start. I ordered the chateaubriand. It was tender and perfectly seasoned. For dessert I had the chocolate torte and a glass of port. My only complaint would be the temperature of the room. It was a cold night to begin with. The ceiling fans only made it colder. Luckily I had kept my jacket. The parking lot was also very dark. It could use more light.
Food was poorly cooked. Clams $18?undercooked and halibut $48 over cooked. Lemon cake hard.
Service slow. Salad served before appetizers. $9 for small portion of unflavored spinach. Way overpriced.
It was an anniversary dinner and quite disappointing.
Sadly our experience didn’t meet our expectations. It’s a beautiful space with very good service. Unfortunately the food was so highly salted it was inedible. It was the first weekend of the season and perhaps they will iron out any “kinks” but for the high price point I can not recommend.
Sorry to see the two stars but glad that you enjoyed your service. We are working very hard on training our new staff to keep up to Chateau standards and hope you’ll give us another chance and we can make it a five-star experience.
Johnny our waiter was fantastic, knowledgeable and provided great recommendations. It truly is a dining experience and was the perfect date night to celebrate my birthday!
Jennifer thank you so much for the wonderful review, we are so glad Johnny took great care of you on your birthday. We hope to see you again soon.
One of the most delicious meals we’ve ever had. The red snapper was amazing, and the sides and appetizers we ordered were all fabulous. The key lime pie was to die for. Our favorite romantic date night spot!
Emily, thank you for the wonderful review so glad you enjoyed everything. We agree Chef Tye’s key lime pie is out of this world
Recommendations were superb and service was outstanding similar to other visits with different waiters!!
Sadie and Mark are truly phenomenal. The lake is beautiful and the aesthetic of the place was great. Very well decorated and made me feel at home. The chef did great, I would recommend the snapper! 😊😊
My night was very relaxing and enjoyable. Don't forget to show up early and have a cocktail down by the water. And end your evening down at the fire pits. I haven't been out in a very long time and the Chateau really made it special. It's going to be a very busy summer. Take care of your servers they deserve it!!
An outstanding experience as always, we love the chateau and have been to both locations but nothing beats the beauty of the original on Lake George. The food and service were amazing can’t wait to come back.
Chateau is one of my favorite places to eat. The ambience was perfect for a romantic date night out with my husband.
The food is impeccable! My husband raves about their steak with their South African rub. It is absolutely delicious like no other steak you will have anywhere else.
The staff are fantastic as always. All are friendly and courteous. Not a long wait for the food either.
If we are staying in Lake George area, we always make sure to come here for dinner or one of the nights that we stay.
Had a very nice time! Would recommend. Excellent service and ambiance. Everything felt comfortable from a Covid standpoint. I thought the food was slightly under seasoned, though that could just be my palette. For reference, I never add additional salt to any restaurant dish. Everything was fresh and cooked appropriately. Somehow, the best two things we had were the seafood bisque soup special, and the side of mashed potatoes. Make sure to get those! Had 2 fish dishes, fish cooked to perfection. Sauces just under-seasoned. Lamb lollipops were delicious, soba noodles that came on the plate could have been left off. Get dessert!
Lovely atmosphere and the food was delicious. Especially the home made eclair
Everything about dining (and staying) at the Chateau on the Lake was magnificent. The ambiance was peaceful and lovely. The cocktails available before and with dinner were inventive. The wine list was abundant with wonderful choices. We had the carpaccio for an appetizer and the meat was sliced so thin and served with fresh tomatoes and toasted capers. My husband had the steak special and it was flavored to perfection. My fish special was likewise wonderful. We also had the luxury of staying overnight at the Chateau and ordered the charcuterie plate to be delivered to the room upon our arrival. It went beyond any charcuterie plate I have ever had both in abundance, display and creativity. The Chateau on the Lake is a true class act. Can't wait to visit again.
We had a great time.
