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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!!

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!

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.
