Perched directly above Lake Bonavista with large glass windows overlooking the lake, The Lake House is home to one of Calgary’s finest & most creative restaurants as well as a unique setting for private events & weddings. Exuding rustic elegance, the interior is illuminated with ornate elk antler chandeliers & a grand fireplace. Catching your eye when you enter is a glass encased wine cellar & a refurbished bar from the 1800’s, previously housed in a mercantile shop in Montana. Our wonderful location is complemented by Chef Thomas Neukom's celebrated Alberta Rocky Mountain cuisine. His offerings feature locally raised meats, game & vegetables from farmers & producers who share his vision for sustainable high quality & close to home cuisine. To augment Chef Neukom's Canadian focused cuisine, The Lake House provides a variety of wine from some of the world's top producers. Our passion extends to many regions of the world, as we have sought to find some of the world's best producers.

We went for a date and were pleasantly surprised by the range of choices on the menu.
Wine list had an array of selection and was very affordable.
All dishes were prepared perfectly, must have red seal experienced chefs.
Our waitress - Laura - was polite, so attentive and knowledgeable on all items in menu. Pleasure to be served by her.
Overall a great experience. Already recommended to other couples.

I took my wedding party here for dinner so that they could see the space and get a feel for it. We shared a bunch of different food. Our service was outstanding, thank you Darcy! It was perfect.

Excellent food, service, ambiance and view. Very pleased and highly recommended especially during daylight hours when the view is most appreciated.

Another memorable experience at one of our favorite local places for a nice dinner. The food was exceptional as it usually is. The duck was the star of the evening this visit along with a rare Syrah that the somm suggested and it paired perfectly.
Once again we will be back. Keep up the great work!

Professional & friendly service, eye appealing & wonderful meals, plus our shared dessert. Did not feel rushed, so my friend & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you!

I will add that I was happy for the special of the day as I was a little disappointed with the lunch menu looking too similar to pub fare.

My guest and I went to The Lake House for lunch on a very cold winter weekday. We were greeted warmly, and the unique dining room lighting and gorgeous view of Lake Bonavista drew us into the dining room. Our servers were friendly and helpful, adding to our experience. The food was good, although my guest commented that she thought that the fries with her fish and chips were old. I enjoyed my soup and "quiche of the day" combination however I would have preferred to have had the soup served prior to the quiche, rather than plated together. By the time I got to eating my quiche, it was only lukewarm. We chose not to have dessert as tempting as the dessert menu was, as the entree portions are generous and we were nicely satisfied. Cappuccino was a delicious end to the meal. It was nicely busy at the restaurant, but the atmosphere was calm and sophisticated but not stuffy. The view of the snow and frozen lake, with sunshine beaming into the room enhanced what was a lovely lunch. I look forward to returning.

Always enjoy going to the Lakehouse. The atmosphere is lovely, the food is always tasty and unique. Great place to go with a friend, as it’s not loud inside, making it easier to visit.

Great atmosphere, excellent service, and phenomenal food. Only disappointing thing was that we were seated next to a wedding reception and it was difficult to talk over the celebrations without screaming. Would recommend to friends and family.
