Wonderful food, service and atmosphere! We went on our Wedding Anniversary and really appreciated the little touches ie Prosecco to the table and a Happy Anniversary Chocolate with our dessert! We loved having a table that looked out over the water. It was a fantastic experience for a special occasion

Everything was so lovely. Despite cloudy rainy day the views were AMAZING! We watched birds of prey diving and getting their own dinner!
Waiter recommended a perfect wine for our scrumptious meal.

We went to the Lake House for our anniversary and were pleased to have Darcy as a server. We loved the spaced seating as it made for a personal and quiet dinner. Darcy was very engaging and had fantastic food and dessert recommendations. Would absolutely recommend the Lake House for any special occasion!

My husband and I were treated by our daughter to a Fathers' Day dinner at the Lake House. We were really impressed with everything from adherence to the Covid-19 restrictions to the level of attention of the staff, not to mention the superb food. and excellent location on Lake Bonavista. A very enjoyable experience.

Amazing environment the moment you walk in. Gorgeous view overlooking the lake. We had unreal service from Darcy he made the whole experience very memorable for us, he recommended everything we ate and all of the dishes were incredible! He also perfectly paired an unusual wine with our steak , we appreciated that he went above and beyond and also a great sense of humor! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We will certainly be back!!

More than We had expected. As it would seem to be nice and comfortable. I didn't expect it to be a memory. Something to remember. Food was awesome great price and portions. I can't wait to get a party together just to sit at the bar. It's a relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for everything.

We had great service however the food somehow this time was not as good. We had visited a few weeks prior for brunch and the hash brown potatoes were crispier, the hollandaise fresher and this Sunday the short rib hash was more like corned beef. I don’t know why but was less impressed this time.

The window view at this restaurant is fantastic as you overlook the lake . Our waiter YVES provided excellent service and guidance with the menu. Our food was tasty and served at the right intervals. Granted their business was slow that night however we were welcomed by all the staff and it suited us well for a 49 anniversary dinner.

This is a lovely restaurant and most people thought their food was delicious. Unfortunately my friend and I had the fish and chips. The fish was very greasy and overcooked. That evening w felt a little queasy. Apart from that the waitress as attentive, polite and efficient and everyone enjoyed the get together.

The food was amazing, the service and the atmosphere both were fantastic. I could have not asked for anything more. A lot of places in Calgary are over rated but this is not one of them, If I could give this place 10 stars, I would give them 11

It was nice to return to this venue after many years absence. The views over Lake Bonavista are really nice. The food and service were excellent. Our only problem was back ground noise - it was hard to hear my wife speak at times.
