Had a wonderful time. Fantastic service and great food.
Great wonderful food and service.
The food was exceptional. It totally surpassed our expectations. Also a pleasant surprise that we were greeted with prosecco in celebration of our anniversary. One of those places where you want to order everything on the menu just to see how amazing it is.
We went here for my brother inlaw's birthday and it was amazing. Very nice scenery. Food was excellent, service was remarkable.
Lunch was lovely. Our table had the best of both worlds- near the fireplace but also adjacent to the window. The service was friendly and efficient. We were relaxed and never felt rushed as we lingered over lunch. The menu has a nice variety to suit all tastes. This was a special occasion as we celebrated my guest's birthday, and her dessert was adorned with candle and a chocolate wafer with Happy Birthday written on it. I recommend The Lake House to anyone desiring a casually elegant atmosphere, delicious food and friendly service.
So impressed! I took my husband here for his birthday. What a gem! Great view. Great food.Great staff. We will definitely come back.
The food was impeccable and the atmosphere was perfect for date night. Our server was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and offered us a great sample of a different bottle of wine after some great discussion about the bottle we got. C
Beautiful room with relaxing view over the water / ice depending on the season. Food is always very good and service is friendly... a gem in South Calgary.
Since this establishment is fine dining, I expected the same for lunch. It was very disappointing. The menu has burger & fries, fish and chips, pasta, quiche, etc. The fries were terrible! They were thin cut and crunchy/too hard to use your fork to pick them up. Possibly stale potatoes? The main itself was good and the sauces were homemade. I've been here for dinner which was great! Would not recommend lunch. Service at lunch was not as friendly either.
We've been here a few times and the place, food, and service is second to none. I picked this place to bring my wife for our wedding anniversary lunch. Sulvie really took good care of us and make the lunch experience even better. The winter scene around is special having been here in summer and fall the first few times. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place for special occasions and everyday place to have a quiet, cozy, and relaxing meal...romantic too.
Great Food. Great Service. Excellent ambience. Highly recommended.
We went for Sunday brunch and had a wonderful meal. We ordered the duck confit croquettes, the Mixed Grill, Sticky toffee pudding and pumpkin creme brulee. Overall, very happy will the taste and presentation. Will definitely return and happy to bring friends next time.
Watching a game of pickup hockey on the man-made rink was enjoyable. A little bit of Canadiana from the past.
Food and service from Darcy was amazing. Always loved coming to the Lakehouse but this time, everything was perfect! Definitely recommend to others!! For appetizers, we had the mussels and lobster ravioli- the mussels in sauce was so good that Darcy brought us more bread to soak it up. So so good!
Our son’s had the bison and they said that it was all perfectly cooked, the cheese fondue was to die for. My husband had the wild boar with the pork belly and he said it was the best he ever had. I had the ribeye and can’t stop thinking about how perfectly seasoned and food it was.
Great service, quiet, lovely view of Lake Bonavista, delicious food and good wine list. We will definitely visit again.
It was my wife's birthday and she wanted to spend it here. It was a great night spending it with friends over terrific food ( I had the duck and shared the mussels, both I would recommend), and del8cious drinks. The service was good. I'm not the best to judge that, as I think my wife's services 😎 are better, honestly she is a server too. With the cold weather outside and the snowy views it was especially nice to sit in front the gigantic fireplace.
It was a great night overall. One that I know my wife won't forget.
We love going to the Lake House Restaurant for Sunday brunch. The menu is exquisite and the service is impeccable. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I wish though, that they would add a gluten free, vegetarian dish.
We arrived to a pleasant greeting. The seating we got was good. We were very pleased with the very attentive service. The quality of the food was very good. Wine menu was good but a little expensive.
The ambience and views are incredible. We were going to sample the food prior to booking the private room for a renewal of our vows party. Our waitress knew that and offered no assistance or food suggestions. The presentation of the food was great however the food was very bland. No real flavour. Very disappointed when paying that kind of money.
Overall, the food presentation was beautiful but flavours and service were a huge let down. Wine glasses and water glasses were left empty without anyone asking if we wanted a refill, no one came to check on how the food tasted and when we were finished eating, we sat with empty plates for 20 mins before anyone came over. Unfortunate that this is the quality we received at this upscale restaurant. Will not be returning.
This night was Valentines Pre-set dinner which allowed us to to choose a main course between three great options. Our server was curtious and polite. She never rushed us thru our meal even though there were many folks with reservations.
The lady at the front misbehaved with us. Normally the restaurant give you call if you are getting late. They never called us, the moment we asked for our reservation she started misbehaving with us. Purposely she gave us a really bad seating. We were so cold we asked the server to change the table.
Later on that front lady again came to us without even asking us to move or giving any space she put the plate, it was so close to our face, when she was putting down the plate. It was the wrong order. We were just done with the appetizer and she gave us dessert. Later without apologizing she started saying things like we have changed the table no wonder she made the mistake. Than she went to two other table with the dessert and couldn’t find the right table.
When people go for a nice, fancy dinner and is willing to pay almost $200 a meal they don’t expect or want to go through this heat. If it was a everyday diner we would let go this behavior but not from a place like this, where you don’t just go for the food. You actually go there to celebrate the occasion, to have a nice time. With this kind of behavior it ends up ruining your mood and you end up regretting that why you are there.
They’re responsibility is not only to make sure they are putting the food on the table but also to make sure they are able to provide the right ambience.
Did not know what to expect, first time there. It was a very enjoyable supper, definitely coming back!
This was a second visit for me, this time with my husband and daughter; very spur of the moment - we booked less than half an hour before. We shared the crab & leek croquettes to start, had quiche, burger and fish & chips for entrees - all the basics, but a notch above - delicious; followed by a shared sticky toffee pudding - again basic but delicious. Lovely bottle of Dog Point served at the perfect temperature. This restaurant is moving onto my favourites list. Thanks to all.
Great service, great view...hard to beat.
Everything was perfect. Food and ambience and our server who also pregnant was outstanding! She recommended many delicious items on the menu and really made our first experience there as a group very pleasant.
Attentive staff and uniquely delicious food. We had a truly memorable time!
Beautiful setting with fine food and service, great value for a lovely luncheon and fabulous
It was our anniversary and we had a wonderful experience! Our server Darcy was great!
The Lake House never disappoints. My only issue was that the Mussels & Frites was probably too large a dish for an appetiser, but too good not to finish. for my main I had Sous-Vide Bison Striploin with Aged Cheddar Fondue. Simply delicious.
Awesome service! Food was unreal and the overall experience was a 10.
River Cafe was always my go to, but I may have a new favourite!
Not huge selection on lunch menu but meal was delicious .
Always a pleasure. We have been patronizing this location for almost 30 years and it is even better now that the CRMR group has taken over. The menu is varied and there are options for all palates. The wine list is equally varied for those special occasions when a full bottle is in order. You can't beat the view right on beautiful Lake Bonavista ~ summer, winter and fall is lovely. Definitely a favourite with our family.
Had my wife, daughter, and 95 year old Mother-In-law. She ate her whole plate of French Toast, even though she said it was too much. Cold day and they had fireplace going, very cozy. Great staff, with patience for my Mother-in-law.
Eggs benedict was fantastic, but my wife got the dick confit croquettes, and we all said NEXT TIME THAT'S WHAT I'M ORDERING.
We had such a great night out at the lake house. The server was attentive and knowledgeable and her wine recommendation was delicious.
We look forward to going back there
excellent as always and its always so lovely to look out over the lake, regardless of the season
I dont typically write reviews, but the customer service during my visit was exceptional. So much so that I wanted to mention it.
A very enjoyable evening. The food and service was top notch. Would definitely recommend for a unique dining experience.
