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.
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.
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.
