The Lake House
Very quiet as not busy
Great service and lovely view
Wednesday a great night to go
It was weird, we were the only table at first. They wouldnt leave the water bottle on the table even when we asked. Midway through the meal our waitress totally disappeared and someone else took over. She checked in after we ordered dessert from another waiter but we never saw her after. Food was good but it was really expensive. $190 4 people no beverages not including tip.
Checkout my review on Google maps it's much more extensive. But this place is wonderful. The menu is interesting and unique , taste is marvelous. Our server was probably the best I've ever had wine glasses were filled by the time we set them down. 100% recommend this place. We'll be going back for special occassion.
The service was incredible. Excellent experience would recommend anyone to try out this outstanding place fir amazing food and service. A special thank you to our server.
Love coming back to this neighbourhood gem.
Always amazing service, food, wine and ambiance.
We have been to the Lake House several times. Last time more than a year ago. And now a few days ago. The decor is a stunning lodge type with “Persian” rugs and a roaring fireplace. The view of the lake beautiful, people skating. Chatty social environment, but not too loud. The house wines are excellent. We chose tempranillo. Personal attention constant by waiting staff, without being overbearing. I would say the service is excellent, that could be its strongest point. And yet the food all local produce well presented, interesting, and moreish. I would say fine dining without being stiff color. Excellent business or dinner date. Not really family & children type experience.
Special birthday and
Food was good. High price but to be expected. Getting charged for “still” water was a bit ridiculous when your paying $300 for dinner and $60 per bottle of wine. I would think they could throw in the water.
Parents went for brunch here. Shared scones as appetizer and enjoyed them very much. Dad had quiche, which was excellent. Mom had farmer's breakfast which was not very good- rosti not crisp, bacon WAY overdone, sausage spiced in a manner that was unappealing. Service pleasant and attentive, table comfortable and with a beautiful view. Overall, they enjoyed themselves, but the farmer's breakfast- which is composed of breakfast staples- should be improved.
First time dinning here, the service was very good waitress was amazing, very friendly. Excellent wine list. Food was delicious, lots of flavour, portions were bang for your buck. Will definitely be going back again real soon.
The food was delicious and the restaurant was warm and full of happy people. The service was excellent.
Was VERY cold by the window and the service was kind of slow for the amount of people that were dining at the time
The server was very attentive. The food was delicious.
The Lake House was excellent. The food outstanding and the service wonderful. The view makes you feel like you are out of town.
I always forget how much I love this place. Brought my daughter and her best friend here for my daughters birthday bruch. We had a corner window table where we laughed, talked, cried, and reminisced. Food, ambiance, service outstanding and no one ever made us feel rushed.
Would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a superior bruch experience
Excellent food! Fantastic server who went above and beyond!
Food and service is always good at the Lake House, it’s one of my favourite places to go for a good meal.
Yes - but with the caveat its V expensive for what you get. However, if you want to impress someone in business or in personal matters, then it's a good choice. I was there for a business lunch so it was ok - my mushroom soup for $11 was *hugely* disappointing. My business guest had the chicken pot pie and she said it was "good" - not great.
It was a wonderful birthday celebration. However, it was very hard to talk to anyone when trying to book a reservation. Left a number of messages and it took almost 6 hours to get a call back.
After a not so great last visit, The lLake house sure redeemed themselves in my book excellent service by Erica and the food was amazing
Thank you, it was appreciated!
This was our first fancy dinner as a couple and it was a fantastic experience at the Lake House. We felt special and well attended to. The food was great, and we had a nice romantic dinner by the fire. Would definitely come here again!
Nice brunch. Portions small for brunch. Never good to leave hungry, that’s all my guests will remember.
We were pampered. Service was very good and the food was excellent. We had an very nice evening and will be back again.
Impeccable service. Food was tasty. Decor was lovely.
First time, and really enjoyed ourselves! Will be returning as often as possible!
Valentine’s dinner with my wife. First time at the Lake House. Service was great. Food was excellent. Will definitely be returning soon.
One of the finest settings in Calgary for an enjoyable lunch. Beautiful view of the lake with large windows. Food is definitely above average and the service was outstanding. I would recommend - especially for special family occasions.
Always great experience at the Lake House! Staff are amazing!
I went to the Lake House for Valentine’s Day dinner with my husband and parents. Our server was lovely and we liked that we weren’t rushed but overall the experience wasn’t up to our expectations of the Lake House. It was a set menu with only a choice for the main course. The food was fine, but it wasn’t of $85 value per person. I know going out for a nice dinner on a special occasion comes with certain compromises but the food left so much to be desired we were left disappointed by the experience
We came for Valentine’s Day lunch and it was amazing. Honestly, if only for ambiance it’s a ten but the food and service most certainly match it! I couldn’t say enough great things. We had the chicken pot pie and the strip loin and both were outstanding It was a 10. GREAT JOB!!! We will be back.
Valentines Day lunch. It was great and extra special. Thank you.
Amazing restaurant! One of my favorite places, we got a table next to the fireplace, and my date was soo happy, especially on a cold cozy night in Calgary.
While the ambiance is lovely, the food is not as well done as I was expecting for the price. I ordered wild boar, and I do understand that it is a fatty dish, it was mostly comprised of a big portion of fat that hadn’t been trimmed or crisped so that it would be palatable. The accompanying beans were very salty as well. I notified the server and they handled all this beautifully, they comped the dish and thanked me for the feedback. The drinks and appetizers were good. The service was great overall, the server overheard my husband say it was my birthday and brought a special addition to our dessert order.
I’d try the restaurant again, maybe in the summer when we can see the lake at night, and hopefully to redeem the food quality.
Food was fantastic, one of the best steaks I've ever ate. Server was nice polite and knowledgeable. Nice seat by the fireplace and lake side window.
The food was excellent and the service top notch. We will definitely be back. Thanks to Desiree for her wine recommendation and to Christine for looking after us so well. Compliments to the chef for the delicious duck, cod and boar.
Celebrating my husband’s birthday and I was trying to lose weight. The server and kitchen went above and beyond to make my meal enjoyable by substituting more vegetables for the starch, however they missed the mark a bit by giving me starchy veggies rather than the green ones I anticipated. I should have been more specific. But the fish was cooked to absolute perfection!
One strange thing, and I guess it relates to the sections assigned to servers, but why not seat dinner guests in the comfortable, upholstered chairs first? The other plain wood “schoolhouse” chairs really should go. Not nice seating for a slow, relaxing dinner date.
We had a wonderful meal with great service. Thank you very much and our hats off to The Lake House!
For the past two years my husband and I have gone to the Lake House for our anniversary dinner as that is where we got married. We always look forward to our celebration but this year was exceptional! We had Darcy as our server and he was fantastic! He provided outstanding service to match the great food. If you are headed to the Lake House ask for Darcy I’m sure he won’t disappoint.
We really enjoyed our evening here. I had the scallop main which was full of flavour and beautiful presentation. My husband had the ribeye which he really liked. We had desserts of pumpkin cheesecake and grasshopper pie which were very beautiful to look at and tasted really good. The service was smooth with confident wait staff. We were seated by the window which felt private and was conducive to good conversation. We really liked the ambience. Hopefully we can go back again and try more dishes!
