The Lakehouse - Mandeville
Great place for an excellent brunch. There is a good variety of dishes. The tables were a little too close for comfort but otherwise the service staff is friendly and very helpful. There was one busboy who was paying much attention and wound up overfilling water glasses, causing a spill and splash.
Been to Lakehouse 10 times. Food not as good as usual. Food is usually great! Seems like champagne was different !
Great food and service. They had an amazing guitarist and singer which made us want to stay for more drinks and dessert. It is a little loud though because they have no acoustical treatment.
It was awesome. Great service, food and ambiance. And Bella Glos Pinot Noir for $58 a bottle. Life is good.
Amazing brunch! We will def be back
Brunch here is always phenomenal! The food, drinks, service are all incredible! I would like to come here every week!
They accommodate all requests even put out balloons for me for special occasions!
Great restaurant. The band was way too loud to have a casual conversation.
Had a very good meal and the price was reasonable. Service was excellent and the view was gorgeous. I'll definitely go back and would recommend this restaurant.
Great food! Delicious! Great atmosphere and ambiance with the smooth jazz duo.
Incredible food, atmosphere, location, and staff. Love this place. Great wine specials on Thurs too!
Sunday Brunch was terrific!! Mimosas included which I wasn’t in the mood for but the food was very good! Perfect for a beautiful Sunday afternoon
Amazing! Service was phenomenal- food is so good!
This is set up as a buffet. Some items are great, some I don't care for. But that is not necessarily a knock on The Lakehouse. I don't care of fried chicken so there is really nothing the chef can do to make it palatable in my mind. I am more of a grilled fish person.
I strongly suggest the grilled catfish with some type of orange glaze. Outstanding!! Be sure to end your meal with the bread pudding. The absolute best...bar none. There is also a unique Eggs Benedict-type dish that you should try. It is a very interesting variation on Eggs Benedict. The staff is very attentive. As soon as they see your mimosa glass empty, they rush to refill it. Dirty dishes are removed almost as soon as you empty them.
After you finish dining, take a walk along the Lake Pontchartrain sea wall to walk off some of the calories in the great food you have just consumed.
Great brunch on a beautiful Sunday morning. Lots of choices of delicious items and Mimosa's too!
The food is top notch and a really good value for the money. I think the service could have been a little more attentive, but our server was very nice.
My dining companion had a restricted diet. Vegan and low sodium. A special dish was made that was salty and very heavy on the garlic. Everything off the regular menu was abslutely delicious. Music could be too loud for some people.
As always the lake house was great. Great food and atmosphere. One we always recommend to friends, especially for the sunset dinner/drinks. Can’t beat that.
Our dinner was phenomenal ! We had the ribeye and the triple tail fish. Both were excellent ! The service was first class and the ambiance was wonderful!
Great food and atmosphere for girls dinner out!
Fabulous! We have dinner here often!
Wonderful Valentines Day Dinner from the food to the ambience.
The only comment I had was the lamb - it was served for New Year's Eve but the portion must larger. But, there was no potatoes and greens. The method it was served on New Year's Eve much better and the taste
Everything is wonderful - Greg extremely kind and accommodating. And Helen our serve, is the best. Nothing is to much to ask - she has a wonderful attitude. Greg's selection of music was great as well.
Fantastic food. Great service. Wonderful ambiance.
We went to The Lakehouse for Valentine's Day and it was decorated with balloons and red roses for the special occasion. Our service was exceptional and the food was very large portions compared to other nice restaurants. It had been a couple of years since we had been there but we plan to go back in the near future.
It was a beautiful day at the lakefront. Great seating outside. Food was excellent! Service was excellent!
My spouse and I love to have dinner here for date night. The food is always amazing and the staff very friendly and accommodating. We brought my parents the other night for dinner, it was their first time there, they loved all of it except at one point the live music really took away from the fine dining experience due to the noise level being a bit too loud to enjoy conversation.
Wonderful experience! We told them it was my sisters birthday. They had our table for 8 ready on time with balloons for the birthday girl. Very friendly staff and manager checked on us as well. The food was delicious! I’ll be back soon.
Family brunch. Had a great time
We went for brunch there were four of us 11-year-old 15-year-old my daughter and myself. We were pleasantly surprised that the atmosphere was very upbeat and positive and the food was scrumptious. The Mamosa's were strong and delicious. We had a blast and the cost was about half of what we thought it was going to be so huge value and a great time !!
Sunday brunch was delicious, but a bit pricey. Would appreciate an alcohol free option for non-drinkers instead of one adults only $33 a person brunch, even if it was only $3 cheaper.
On a cold day, with the patio closed, the restaurant filled up very quickly and was pretty crowded around the buffet. I don't know if that made it difficult for the staff to keep up, but the cleanliness and organization of the buffet was suffering (food all over the dessert handles for example) with many items running out or near out.
Overall, a delicious bring but well below expectations based on cost and previous visits.
Great service and meal!
Sunday buffet was very good. The food was great and hot
New Years Eve dinner
The wine was not worth the additional cost. Outside of that, the dining experience was outstanding!
Awesome New Year's Eve dinner. Food was outstanding. Large portions and great price! Have never been disappointed anytime we have gone!
We love brunch here and come as often as we can! It gets better every time we go!
We went there to celebrate our birthdays and were treated to great food with great service! Can't wait to go back.
Had a good experience over all. We enjoyed the evening. This was Christmas Eve dinner buffet. The food was really good. It was our first time there. However, we were seated next to the door and tables were too close together so we had to deal with people passing and bumping our table constantly as well as draft from the door. Our waiter made up for the experience by paying for my drink.
Went for Christmas Eve dinner. Buffet style, food was good, service was good.
The food was outstanding. The noise level was high for a fine dining establishment. The service was not great and it would have been nice of the server cared at all that we were celebrating an anniversary.
