A bit pricey. $12. (For three small scoops of sorbet?) Have never been charged for water before....ever.
One of my favorite restaurants in Calgary. Great service, imaginative food and a wonderful ambiance.
Service was great! Food was out of this world. Will definitely return.
It was fantastic! My first time there, will definitely be back
Very good service.
Great food, great view, great service. Seating is in one big room, but with a nice ambiance.
It was the first time we dined at the Lake House. The experience was amazing!
From the first person we met to the last person when we left were all welcoming, warm and friendly. The food was what we expected from a high end dining experience - excellent! I attended with my 19 year old son and he was comfortable and impressed with everything he experienced. Great place to dine!
Food, Service, Ambiance was all Five Star. The daily Quiche special was great for lunch.
Love the Lake House so much... But I’m hesitant to tell you all, because then I won’t have this Little secret for myself ;)
You definitely won’t find this quality of food at a chain restaurant. Service was great, very clean. Table for two is very small, value food wise...the food was good, but didn’t blow my mind.

A perfect location to celebrate milestones, or just enjoy a nice date night with your partner. Friendly staff and good food.
Friendly staff and good food! Darcy is the greatest. He was definitely a big part of our night.
Can't wait to visit again :)
Thank you Claire for the glowing review of us and Darcy! I will be sure to mention your review to him! The Lake House Team
Excellent food & service. The menu had changed after making our reservation which was a little disappointing as we had our hearts set on dishes from the old menu. Look forward to going again.
Due to COVID the menu was limited. Not their fault. I would like to do it again when things get back to normal. Dishes that I was looking for were not available. Found it quite pricey.
Thank you Carol for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not find what you were looking for. Since reopening in June we have only removed one appetizer that changes seasonally like the rest of our menu . We hope that you would consider giving us another chance in the future to redeem our CRMR cuisine and change your opinion on us! Desiree Plume-Manager
We were not seated in the main room so I didn’t enjoy the atmosphere.
Food is over priced for what you get.
Thank you for your feedback AldaS. We saw that you were dining earlier in the evening, we would have happily moved your table to the main space, as it was available at that time. We hope that you would consider giving us another chance in the future to redeem our CRMR cuisine and change your opinion on us! Desiree Plume-Manager
We went for our anniversary and were greeted with bubbly. Darcy, our waiter was amazing and very knowledgeable. I am celiac and the options were great and chef accommodating if needed. Highly recommend this beautiful and ambient restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised finding this restaurant as we have never been! We went for our anniversary and were blown away! Def going back.
Thank you Jennifer, we appreciate the 5 star review! Cheers
Great setting with well prepared and presented food. We will be back!
Excellent review Gary! Thank you!
No fault of the Lakehouse... difficult to hear serving staff through masks above the overall noise level of other diners. Food was good... but the new menu offerings seemed a step-down from the previous menu (maybe through no fault but seasonal availability issues).
Thank you Zanzibar for the feedback. Yes, it is definitely hard to hear service staff with masks on, and AHS guidelines states to keep the music on low. However, it is impossible to control the volume of other diners! We hope that you would consider giving us another chance in the future to redeem our CRMR cuisine and change your opinion on us!

We are always so impressed with the customer service at the Lake House. We were there to celebrate out anniversary and we received complimentary prosecco when we arrived and a lovely chocolate "Happy Anniversary" sign on our dessert. Such a beautiful setting and the food is always amazing.
Fall foliage, phenomenal food, and fun festivities celebrated at The Lake House this week. Highly recommended!
Fantastic as usual.
Service was great, not too loud.
Food is always great!
Celebrating our Anniversary and had a wonderful time. My Wifes halibut was cooked perfectly and my wild boar was excellent. The Waitress was really prompt, pleasant and helpful. A very nice experience. Would recommend you try them out.
Great meal and great service.
Great for special occasions. We went for our anniversary. Service was amazing. Food was excellent. I wish I could afford to come here more often.
Amazing food, romantic setting, overall great night.
Met with a friend for the first time. And it was outstanding!
Thank you for the 5 star review. We look forward to your return!!
I met a friend for lunch and everything was exquisite! The only challenge was I had requested a window seat in my reservation to look out onto the lake and at 1230 there wasnt any available.
Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself at lunch. We unfortunately, do not hold window seats as we have far more requests than windows. My suggestion is to come in closer to when we open the doors at 11:30am and your chances would be a lot greater. Thank you
We had dinner at the Lake House one year to the day we got married at the Lake House. Both events were special, and we will return every year if we are in town. The Lake House is a special place.
Have tried for 2 years to get into this restaurant and was very disappointed with out of town guests. Not a big selection of food and no options.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Please accept my sincere apologies that we were unable to surpass your expectations. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly should you have any further comments.
Great food, great view, great atmosphere, and great service. Guinness was a tad pricey, but, overall, was a great experience.
It was my first time dining at the restaurant and I really enjoyed the experience. I definitely come back!
Wife and I got married here and we absolutely love it! We have always wanted to come back and dine but have never got the chance to go come till now. Every time we have wanted to go they have been booked for events but now with COVID it was easy getting a reservation.
Fish plate was amazing. Excellent assortment of smoked fish. Marinated seafood salad was out of this world!
Thank you Ducati! We look forward to having you visit again!
Always Great, beautiful spot over looking a lake. Food was delicious! Service was outstanding.
Service is always great and they have a great lunch selection.
Food is very good. Important to support our local restaurant!
Great service, nice place.
Food and service were great. Made my wife's birthday do memorable
Great place to go for a special dinner. The food was amazing! We had the Charcuterie plate to start, the rack of lamb and the boar for our mains. It was all very well put together. We dined a little bit earlier (5:30) but was able to get a table by the window so we could enjoy the view of the lake. Service was great!
we were seated by an slightly open door for the patio. i found it a bit cold. we closed it and the whole restaurant warmed up, but others were too hot. so the door was opened again.
Food was excellent and so fast, i was surpised. Tthe service outstanding.
Thank you for leaving us your feedback on your experience. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the service and food and are sorry to hear that you were cold during dinner. We keep the patio doors open for service and not for temperature control as we have air conditioning. Please let us know if you choose to dine again with us and we will seat you far away from any door.
Been 50 yr since we got married there. Not disappointed in either?!!!
