It is a wonderful top notch restaurant in SE Calgary. A real treasure.
Nice meal. Quiet great for conversation.
Our server was amazing! The food was incredible! They switched up my reservation to a much larger one with ease and had everything ready for us when we all arrived. Would definitely recommend!
Disappointing quantity and quality for appy’s got 3 small Ravioli and were pretty rubbery, definitely not fresh. Would have guessed it was microwaved, but was also Luke warm, almost cold. Not much flavour either. For $19 expected a bit more.
The other was the mussels, only got about 10 and was supposed to be a cream sauce that really seemed more like warm milk with zero flavour, $17 for that.
I don’t mind paying more if it tastes good and is fresh. Appys were neither.
Main meals were tasty, but very small portions.
Glad we asked for bread (you have to ask or you don’t get bread). Wine selection was good and service was outstanding.
The views were great, but I doubt we will return anytime soon.
Cozy and warm with a jovial buzz about. The quality of the ingredients shine through in the top notch preparation of the dishes. Staff were friendly and on the ball, no waiting for attention nor receiving too much.
The ambience was relaxing, the lake is beautiful to look out to. Service was outstanding not too rushed and timing was perfect on each course.
We will definitely be going back to try more of the amazing menu.
Feature entrée Elk Tenderloin just melted in your mouth.
Over all one of the top restaurants in Calgary.
Excellent food and service
Scenic view best meal out we have had in Calgary! Darcy our server did an excellent job! Would definitely go back!
Only suggestion need more comfortable chairs
Such a lovely restaurant in an expected place. Great service and great food! We will surely go back for more!

For at least the past six years we have celebrated a friend's birthday every late September at the Lake House. We wouldn't go anywhere else. The views are magnificent with the trees turning colour. The food is always first class. This year was more crowded - good to see - and our waitress was exceptional. No one could be disappointed having any type of occasion there.
The Icelandic Cod was wonderful! Rib-eye steak was decent. Lemon dessert (ice cream with berries) was delicious! Great wine. Lovely setting on the lake, wooden floors and big fireplace.
The LakeHouse is our go to restaurant for date nights. The staff are always friendly and the food is amazing! We highly recommend this venue for a night out or for hosting a special event like a wedding or corporate function!
A perfect evening and oasis! Fantastic service and good!
Beautiful setting, service was good. Gluten free options very limited, No dedicated fryer, no gluten free buns/bread for sandwiches - many gf bakeries in Calgary - no excuse
Very good food
Delicious food. Great service. Beautiful view. What more could you want?
Good food. Wonderful atmosphere.
I’ve only recently discovered The Lake House, a wonderful gem tucked away in a natural environment. It has quickly become my go-to restaurant which provides the perfect ambience to meet with friends and family. High praise!
Very pleasant evening - good food - good service (though a few too many visits to the table by wait staff) - too loud for reasonable conversation levels. Popular place, therefore crowded.
This was the first time my wife and I went out for dinner to The Lake Restaurant and it was a great meal. The appetiser, dinner and deserts were excellent. Our server, Darcy, did a great job, he was very friendly and accommodating and our water glass was kept full. It was a great evening out and we will be back!
We decided to celebrate our anniversary at the Lakehouse. We were treated to a glass of Prosecco after we were seated by the window overlooking the lake. A very nice touch.
We started with an order of oysters. Disappointed at the size for the price but they were fresh and tasty. Then we had a small fish plank before our meal. It was a generous portion of delicious smoked fish and nicely presented.
My wife ordered the Parisienne Gnocchi to try something different and I ordered the grilled wild boar chop. We were both impressed with our entrees.
For dessert we shared a warm rhubarb kuchen with home made ice cream. A delicious end to a fabulous meal. Work on the size of those oysters if you want 5 stars though!
Love the ambiance! Tends to get a little loud in there but it didn’t spoil our evening.
Our "catch up lunch" with friends ended up being 5 hours! The staff were so amazing and attentive the whole time. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable about the whole menu and specials. I had a question about the soup and she went to the kitchen to double check that what she told me was correct. The food was very tasty and priced well. The view and ambience was perfect....it was cool and overcast outside and we had a window table by the fireplace.
As our conversation became somewhat emotional, the server brought a package of Kleenex and then gave us complete privacy.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and I look forward to going back!
Awesome experience, really loved the place, ambient, food. Everything was just perfect and delicious.
Lamb was slightly under done. The rice under my husbands bidon was very under seasoned and blah. Everything else was fine
Our server was awesome & the food was great as always.
The best view in Calgary, and probably the most delicious eggs benny ever. A very nice way to start Sunday.
Overall, a pleasant experience, reasonable and timely service.
But why charge $1 per glass of tap water?
Wasn’t very busy yet service was poor, staff seemed frazzled
The Lake House was stunning. My boyfriend and I sat by the fire, admiring the lake view and enjoying the fancy cabin ambiance. The servers were kind and effective! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a classy, warm cabin adventure feel during their week or weekend.
Five stars , we really enjoy our night there
Every thing was beautiful
Fantastic as always, dining on the deck is a treat. Darcy was an outstanding server
Had an excellent anniversary dinner here! The food was great, our waiter and his wine recommendations equally as great! We will definitely be back.
I cannot tell you how great this place and how much we enjoyed ourselves. The food, friendly service, scenery were all outstanding. We can’t wait to go back for dinner. Thank you for making my birthday and my parents anniversary so special.
we went for my friends birthday brunch. I had chicken and waffles and she had eggs benny. DELICIOUS!
Went to The Lake House for the first time, to celebrate my birthday over brunch with my girlfriends! The drinks were brought in good time, and very good. The chicken and waffles was so delicious, though could use a little extra syrup on the side. Our server was fantastic and very attentive.
My only complaint would be getting charged for water, which wasn't bottled but 'filtered'. It's only $1 per person, but seems silly to me.
Service was very good ; atmosphere was pleasant ! Food selection and quality was good !
I don't like having to book through a 3rd party website though or all the both after the booking !
Please remove my email address from "Open Table" website !
Was overall disappointing. Our server had an attitude and my ribeye hadn’t been trimmed and had a huge amount of fat on the side, more than 1/4 of the cut. For the $$ I expected a better experience. They even charged for tap water.
First anniversary the food and staff were amazing
Great food, view and service, a very special place in the south of Calgary.
Have eaten there twice lately. The food is very good which is the most important. The first time it was way too cold in the room- had to get a sweater from my vehicle. Second time there was a large noisy group and with each new group arriving they had to shout over the first group. We could hardly have a conversation but fortunately the largest noisiest group left and the noise level was acceptable. The decor is all rustic wood so nothing to absorb sound. Food and service were very good- the handmade chocolates that came with the bill were a nice ending.
