Went for Valentine's Day. My filet was awesome, my wife's my strip just ok. Waiter was just average expected more from this establishment.
I would still recommend and I will definitely repeat for a 3rd time.

Booked reservations through this site and received a confirmation. While pulling into restaurant parking lot via $20.00 Uber ride, received a call stating there were no tables available and that we were welcome to enjoy a meal at the bar. Not exactly how we were looking to spend our Anniversary dinner. How do we get a reservation and confirmation if they don't have tables? We used this site in the past to book a reservation with friends and had a wonderful experience so felt confident that this would work well again. Lesson learned.

Gorgeous ambiance, impeccable service, delicious food and drinks. The location allows you to see the lake while sitting in an Adirondack chair around a firepit, sipping on a cocktail. Very impressive place that's worth the drive.

My wife and I just celebrated our Anniversary at Chateau on the Lake and I can't say enough great things about this place. We arrived for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our waitress, Katrina, was helpful in helping us make are choices that evening and her recommendations were great. We started of with a couple specialty cocktails that were tasty! We had the grilled little neck clams as an appetizer. So many great flavors in this dish from the crispy pancetta, grilled corn, and cream based broth. My wife had the wild mushroom ravioli and I had the pan seared bronzino with lobster risotto. Both dishes were full of great flavors and done perfectly. The portions are just right and priced accordingly. I truly believe you get what you pay for and in this instance it was worth every penny. The views of Lake George are great. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the greatest as we were looking forward to enjoying some after dinner drinks beside the two wood fires burning outside. If I had to list a negative it would be that we're about 6 hours away.

Nice setting. Nice ambience, service - no complaints. Food tasteless and exorbitantly over priced. Calamari appetizer - short glass full of bitter greens with 5 calamari rings. Mushroom ravioli and Bronzino both roughly $45 were virtually tasteless. Chef's cut, New York strip salty with bland truffled mash potatoes.

We had a group of 10 and everything was spectacular. The food was prepared perfectly and everyone enjoyed their meal. From the pickled peach salad to the strip steak and halibut, everything was excellent. The service was incredibly attentive and ambiance was just right. We had the most memorable experience. We are looking forward to our next visit.

How do you rate a restaurant among Top 100 scenic restaurant in United States that has tattered chairs, very poor decor, and unpaved pebble parking lot. Sure the restaurant is located on Lake George, with a not so dramatic view even of the lake. The food was decent but prices were outrageous. Service was excellent though.

We went on an early Sunday evening for a special celebration dinner and were not disappointed. The staff was young, energetic and eager to please. The ambience was perfect for a warm summer evening on Lake George and the meal was a pleasant surprise. The mussels appetizer hit all the right notes and the main course was perfectly prepared and presented.
The staff gave us enough space to enjoy our meal and bask in the glow of our celebration. After dinner we walked down to the dock and enjoyed the sunset and breeze on the lake.
We will be back.

Extremely overpriced. The waitress was pushy and kept trying to up-sell us. I got Ravioli which was good but nothing special for $33 - this was even the cheapest entree. I live in Manhattan and could get the same dish or better in tons of nice restaurants for $25 or less. The calamari is very small and I don’t appreciate that they stuff the bottom with lettuce to take up space. If you share an entree they charge you. The one positive I have to say is that the ambiance is very good, and the man assisting us with getting a table was very kind and helpful. Overall a waste of money.

The Restaurant was so pretty inside . Done in elegant Romantic feel. Our server was Johnny and he was the nicest guy. He didn’t make us feel rushed at all. We like to have a drink before ordering our meals. His wife works behind the bar and she made us delicious cosmos. The food was amazing . It was our best meal of our vacation. I think it was the best filet and lobster tail we have ever had . Cooked perfect and the cut of meat amazing. It cut so easy . The lobster tail was also Perfect. Sometimes Lobster can be chewy well not this one. The entire experience was a beautiful night out. We sat at the bar after for a glass of wine. Great conversation with Johnny and his wife. Very welcoming relaxed atmosphere. We will be back .

Awesome dinner and time spent with friends. The Bonzino and Osso Bucca were fabulous. The music provide by Riley was amazing and added a nice background for dinner. Our server, Jackie was attentive and a pleasure to have as are the other servers (Johnny, Jess and Freddy). Jackie always makes the night special for her guests. Page at the bar is friendly and always willing to make your drink special. Buddy and Jen have a jewel on the lake and worth a visit. I would be remiss if I did not add that Nicole makes the evening run smooth and will always go beyond to make your time special at the Chateau.

Definitely worth the trip and the dinner.

Celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary in a beautiful setting that is romantic and made special by a wonderful staff and location. Our server Jackie was excellent and very attentive to us. We capped the night by staying in one of their beautiful beautiful rooms overlooking the lake. We have stayed in many locations and this is at the top of the list. Definitely recommend a night and dinner at the chateau.
