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.
Been 50 yr since we got married there. Not disappointed in either?!!!
Great food, great service. Great with food allergies. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Great service & food!! Wonderful wine recommendations.
Thanks for making our birthday celebration a memorable event.
Everything was done to perfection.
The Lakehouse is a favourite! We love the view, the staff has always been friendly, efficient & knowledgable about the menu. Highly recommend!!
Initially went off of colleague recommendations as we are new to Calgary, the food was not a disappointment one of the best ribeyes I have ever had while my wife loved the boar and the fish board was something spectacular. If I could give any feedback it would be that I was trying to book this location for an anniversary and had tried several times to book a window seat but this was something that isn't an option which in all honesty I would have paid extra as the setting next to the windows is romantic if you are trying to plan something. Also when I made the reservations I mentioned it was for an anniversary as I saw the extra touch that the restaurant made to write something on a piece of cake which our server wasn't made aware of until the end. Overall will definitely go back as the food and setting is something spectacular.
Thank you Alen for your review. We are pleased you got a window table for your anniversary. We have far more requests than window tables and that is why we never guarantee a window table. We suggest that guests book either early or later in the evening so their chances of a window table are higher. We look forward to your next reservations and thank you again for the great review.
Dinner for two. Had Steelhead Trout & Beef Ribeye both were cooked to perfection. Small portions for price. For dessert had Sticky Toffee Pudding.
I liked the Sticky Toffee Pudding better last year with cooked apples and more sauce.
Overall, would highly recommend. Service was very good.
We were seated on time. The lady that was serving us was very pleasant and friendly. I really enjoy the atmosphere.
The food and service is great, highly recommended!
I booked a reservation and contacted the manager ahead of time to ensure I got a good spot. It was my girlfriend's birthday and I was also proposing that night. They were great about everything. Excellent food and service. They even went above and beyond by bringing us champagne and candles to have out on the balcony.
A friend and I shared the fish plank lunch and it was very good. We also ordered 3 oysters each and enjoyed the light sauce provided. There were a couple of items on the menu that would be suited for cooler days so we plan on going back.
Very friendly staff, delicious seafood, serene ambiance.
Staff very attentive. Table had a nice view of the lake. Perfect evening. Food was beautiful And delicious. Had a wonderful evening.

Great experience. It is always a delightful time when visiting the Lakehouse. Service was exceptional on this particular evening.

We went for our 36th Anniversary and had a spectacular evening. From the atmosphere, service, food and overall experience, everything was amazing.
Happy Anniversary! Thank you for the lovely review!
It was a great experience and the staff made it extra special
Thank you! I will let the team know!
Once others came in, it was hard to hear each other over the noise level in the restaurant. Too bad because otherwise a favorite spot. Can you fix that issue?
Thank you Linda for your review. We are sorry to hear that you had a hard time with the noise levels, and they do get higher later in the evening due to the volume of our guests. I am not sure we can fix this issue but we are willing to seat you in the side room next time where it may be a bit quieter.
The Lakehouse is always amazing - outstanding food, wine, atmosphere and service! Highly recommend!
Thank you for the great review! Appreciate it!
Very tasty dinners and starter. One portion was a little small but flavour was excellent and adjustments were made Beautiful setting and nice to see the room busy. Topped off by a great dessert (tough to choose)!
Thank you RHB48!
Wait staff awesome
Disappointed with patio - way too small and sat in hot sun
Why not open windows facing lake ( even if screens are necessary)
Our summers too short not to enjoy the outdoors
Thank you Denise for your review and feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food and service and hope to see you again in the near future. We are more than willing to open the windows for guests that request it however, we have air conditioning and most guests prefer them closed on those hot days. Next visit if you are at the window and would like it opened please let us know. Warm regards, The Lake House Team
We have been many times for lunch and the service is always great and the food good. The patio is so amazing.
Thank you Tracy!
Always love this place. But this time, there was sand in the mussels. Need to eat with care. Everything else was good as usual.
Thank you for the feedback Janet, I will make the team aware.
