It was a great experience to celebrate our anniversary!
It was our 20th wedding anniversary , we were given a table by window which was well appreciated as it was busy.
Food was outstanding, View
Over lake was stunning.
We had a fantastic evening.
Fantastic meal, wine and service. Even with a packed restaurant they managed to nail every detail. Will be back for sure!
Loved it! The lake view and setting is beautiful
Greatly enjoyed the ‘Crab and Salt Cod Samosas’ followed by ‘Halibut’ which was a delight of layered flavour. Well done!
Food was excellent for us that is the most important feature. Love the view from our lakeside table. Our server was efficient and knowledgeable. She bought one of our party a sample choice of wines, which was over and above what you usually expect.
Well done we will return.
As always the food was good and the atmosphere is what you would expect. The meals and service are always very reliable and steady, I have been here several times and have never been disappointed but i have also never been wow'd. A solid choice for the everyday diner, but not so great for a foodie or if you are expecting anything out of the ordinary.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us and give us your rating. I'm sorry that your experience wasn't what you were expecting--but we try our best to be exceptional, and we never want to settle for mediocre or average. We have just launched a new lunch and dinner menu so I hope you give us another try.
Lovely evening but some of the dishes were a bit bland and the menu was fairly limited. The service was excellent as always. Overall we had an enjoyable evening and we will definitely return again.
Excellent as usual. may be time to change the menu a bit. Hasn't been done in a while it seems.
Excellent experience. Particularly recommend the lamb and the sticky toffee pudding.
Professional and down to earth!
Stress free dining, educates server on all the menu’s
Gluten free no issues!
Had dinner at the lake house for our anniversary & had amazing service & the food was great
Great service, beautiful view delicious food
Highly recommend this restaurant to celebrate your special events. The food was exceptional. My husband declared his lamb sirloin, the best he ever had and my ribeye was spectacular.
Birthday dinner, sat on the patio it was all around great.
Very nice restaurant! 🙂
Food was amazing and the service was super too! Highly recommand.
Took my husband here for a romantic date and we loved it. Lovely ambiance, incredible food, and a truly spectacular view both before and after sunset! The food was also very reasonably priced and our server was wonderful. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone seeking a romantic dinner for two!
Great experience. Our server was fantastic and gave great service. five star overall.
Our waiter was great but the quality and quantity of food was quite underwhelming for the price.
I don't think I'd return.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review on The Lake House. We strive to ensure every guest receives excellent service as well as delicious food, and are sorry you feel this was not the case during your visit. We would advise letting your server know as soon as possible and our kitchen would be able to remake the dish for you. We hope that you would consider giving us another chance in the future to redeem our CRMR cuisine and change your opinion of us! Erica Pelletier-Manager
I’m definitely going back! Absolutely amazing, the food was out of this world ! I can’t believe this was my first time going there.
Sat out on the patio overlooking the lake! Wonderful birthday celebration.
Always spectacular and never disappointed. The staff are always so accommodating and friendly and there is not enough to be said about the food! The atmosphere and setting is second to none. Love this place!
Super service by Sierra and other staff! All the food items were well prepared and beautifully presented :)
Great view over the lake. Our food was fantastic and service was prompt and friendly. Definitely a very enjoyable experience.
Great service. Great food (large portions for fine dining) and great view.
Incredible service and food!
Amazing service, view and great food! Scallops would be better without lentils. Just sayin’.
Elegant ambiance, nice view, excellent food and service. Went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our server was the best! She gave us a complimentary glasses of Prosecco and espresso chocolates. Outside ambiance where restaurant is located is very unassuming. Definitely coming back here! Giving it 5 stars for wine and food selection! Wish we had something similar to this in Edmonton.
So amazing. 10/10.
While The Lake House is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants, and we have dined there a few times, we just celebrated our 30th Anniversary there and couldn't be more pleased! Seated outside, we had a full view of the lake and it was lovely outside. Everything about the experience was wonderful; from the pleasant greeting, to the amazing service, to the exceptional meal and the lovely chocolates, it was a delight!
Thank you Lake House for our complimentary champagne, and for helping to make our anniversary so special!
Got charged $34 for a kids meal - our son couldn't have anything from the kids menu (needed to be gluten free) so we decided to order the chicken fingers and fries and substituted the breaded chicken for some fish. However our server failed to mention that there would be a $24 upcharge for the fish! Fortunately the rest of our meals were not as greasy as this move...
We enjoyed our anniversary supper here. Amazing flavors, great service, beautiful view.
Fantastic food and service! Outstanding views! Just an incredible time overall, thank you!
The food , service and ambience were all excellent. We were there for our wedding anniversary dinner and we were made special at this beautiful restaurant. Definitely a must visit in Calgary.
We had an amazing experience for my birthday here last night. I wasn’t thrilled with my meal and the server was amazing. A manager came over and made sure I got another meal and a drink. They really went above and beyond to make sure we had a positive experience. Thank you Lake House for another fantastic meal!
Outstanding food, wine and service. It was VERY loud with large groups, but there was good energy in the room. My only criticism was the large amount of fruit flies fighting for my food!!
Good food nice place go early 5:30 to get a table by the lake. Will come back
Still our go-to place for a consistent fine dinning experience. The views are spectacular.
We look forward to our next night out at the Inn.
