    Quaint restaurant with views of Lake George. Service was exceptional and food was great (we split the chief's cut (steak)). Quiet jazz music in background and very attentive staff. We will definitely be going back.

    I have been to the chateau many times and the last few have been a disappointment. While the service is always quite good the food was mediocre at best. My fish entree was overdone and the red velvet cake was dry. My husbands pork chop entree was done well though. The menu hasn’t changed very much in a few years and I think they are getting complacent which for such an expensive restaurant is too bad.

    We had the nicest staff helping us which made the experience enjoyable, but the food was really disappointing. We’ve come here in the summer and enjoyed it so I’m not sure if the chef is different for the fall season. We got the lamb lollipops for apps and the soba underneath was so over cooked it was inedible. We got the chefs cut which had South African rub. The meat was cooked really well but the rub was way too salty - there must have been additional salt on top of the rub. We also got the duck confit pasta and it was basically just eating a whole clove of raw garlic for dinner. The pasta managed to be both bland and overpoweringly garlicky at the same time, neither of us could have more than a couple bites. It was extremely disappointing bc the house made pasta was again cooked to perfection. We really wanted dessert but we were so disappointed with the meal we had to leave without.

    The food wasn't bad per se but it was so overpriced it was hard to enjoy it. A bowl of fettucine with mushrooms and a few pieces of duck confit- $48! I get it, this is a tourist town but our experience this year with the area restaurants in general was high prices for just ok food. Wine prices 8-10 times the price of the bottle in the liquor store and cocktails $15-25 just take the fun out of it for us. We had a rather poor experience here 2 years ago but decided to give it another chance. It was better but I don't see us going back again any time soon.

    We enjoyed dinning inside with a lake view. Our server, Kevin, was cordial and informative. The Rib Eye was prepared perfectly with truffle mashed potatoes. The layered lemon raspberry cake was light & not overly sweet. The ambiance is charming.

    My snapper was cooked to perfection and my lamb lollies were delicious. My husband had the chef's cut which was out of this world as well as the clams said they were some of the best he's ever had. We followed it with a crème brûlée and flourless chocolate cake highly recommend it!!

    The ambiance is amazing. So quaint and cozy. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated, the waiter was awesome. The food was spectacular. The special was a butternut squash soup. The best I’ve ever had!! Both of our meals were spectacular and the dessert was wonderful. I don’t have anything bad to say. We would make a point to return on our next trip!

    This is our favorite restaurant, no questions asked. We came here after our engagement last year and returned to the same area to celebrate our anniversary and had to make a stop back in. The best steak I’ve ever had and the graham cracker calamari is incredible.

    If you've never been here before definitely make your reservations two weeks in advance and ask for the porch. Reserve a table by the windowsill on the porch. It is the best seat in the house!! But if you run cold the second night we sat inside next to the fireplace and that is a wonderful spot as well.

    Made a reservation the night before. Was quick and easy. The next day I got a follow up phone to confirm our reservation. When we arrived we were greeting by a very friendly hostess. While we were conversing the Manager Mark came over and joined in. Both where so nice and friendly. Got to out table with a perfect view of the water. Our water Kevin was Johnny on the spot and take amazing care of us all evening. The food was outstanding. My wife had beef while I had pork. Both cooked to perfection and amazing tastes!!! This place is a repeater for sure. This is the first time I have been back since before covid and let me tell you it might have gotten even better than before.

    Amazing!! We did not have a reservation we came in at 8:00 and the hostess graciously greeted us and told us to enjoy a drink down by the water and she might be able to get us seated between 8:30 and 9:00 we had nowhere else to be and we were happy to wait. When we went back up to the host stand at 8:30 and she was all set for us, she was so helpful. Their manager Mark was behind the bar who took care of us, he was outstanding and his drinks were phenomenal. It was a perfect fall night and they were hopping!! Great job to the kitchen everything was outstanding lamb lollies, tuna, chateaubriand, snapper, creme brulee and donuts out of this world!! 10/10

    Our server, Adam was extremely busy covering the entire inside but he still hustled to do a wonderful job waiting on us! We had a very romantic setting & the food was phenomenal! My filet chateaubriand was like butter & the calamari was awesome! Moving on to desert but 2 things to keep in mind 1- I am normally not a desert eater and 2 - I also don’t do lemon but we ordered the lemon raspberry with white chocolate shavings , i cannot express how outrageous this desert was, the taste it left on your palate was so pleasing! Lemon was light & desert was extremely refreshing! Nicole the hostess was just wonderful! Anytime we go up I will dine there!
