It’s our third time there n we bring friends to celebrate special occasions in the evenings. We love it. The view is beautiful in the summer when daylight is longer.
The cooks are good since the food is fantastic.

Fast service. Was sat by a loud party and asked to move. Which was no problem. After the move we could talk no problem and hear each other. Food was great but we are plan people so we ordered all sauces on the side. They are very friendly and will accommodate you anyway they can.

Did not enjoy anything. My veal was over cooked and the spaghetti was way too garlicky. The waitress was not very friendly. Definitely not worth the money. I enjoy The Stonehouse much more.

Had a reservation but waited a bit before being seated. Recent renovations are nice which brightened up the dining area. Food and service was amazing. Very good wine list but found it a bit pricey. Would definitely come back and recommend to friends.

I received a gift card from a colleague and decided to go on my birthday for lunch, with my family. It was a Saturday at 1:30. The restaurant was busy, but not overly crowded. The seating was terrible as I faced a wall with the bar tv poking out above it. The tables facing the bar should be turned into u-shaped tables facing the lake and the rest of the restaurant. The server was very good. The food, however, had me racing for the washroom afterward and I was ill for the entirety of the weekend and part of Monday (the house salad with warm mushrooms, etc.) My husband said his burger was good, but not great. He was not taken ill, so that was good.

Overall we had a good experience. However we found some items overpriced. Specifically, paying more than $10 for 3 after dinner coffee's seemed a bit much and we found the wine prices to be high as well. That said, food was very good, portions were generous and service was good.

The Lake House restaurant is a beautiful scenic spot on Lake Ontario with excellent service. The cauliflour cheese soup was excellent and the menu offers food choices to suit a variety of diners healthy choices. I have been there many times now and always enjoy the experience.

Waitress has chosen the wrong profession She was not attentive, very cold and non-interested in taking care of us. French fries did not seem fresh and moderately warm. Although the renovation is lovely, I miss the quaintness of the old décor. Menu appears to have smaller choices than previously and prices high for what you get. Our past experiences have been much better; this was not up to what we have experienced in the past and don't expect to return again.

We went there on a recommendation from someone who has been there. So our expectations were high. Unfortunately, the main course we found very salty (seafood dish for 2) and not as tasty that we had hoped for.
The service was fine and it appeared to be a nice setting. I'm sure there are beautiful sunsets to view at different times of year.
As far as recommending this to other people; I would just say we weren't totally satisfied for out "entertainment bucks" and I would tell people that and let them make up their own decision as to go or not. I wouldn't try to discourage anyone from going; just give them our opinion.

This was the first time that I have been here that it was not a 5 🌟 experience. The wine list is awesome, the service was awesome and the menu is excellent.

Execution was the problem this time. Twice we had to send the potatoes and vegetables back because they came out cold. However, the staff and management handled it very professionally.

Even an established restaurant with a track record of excellence needs a lukewarm review once in awhile to stay on their game.

friendly welcome, but then brought to a table that vibrated (over the furnace??) , then my plate was unbalanced so it 'wobbled' when i cut into the food. soup had far too much black pepper in it. cold breeze periodically across our table. waiter forgot drink for our son, then forgot the sauces, waited too long between courses. dessert (cheesecake) was very tasty but was served in a shot glass! my veal was average. my husband really enjoyed the lamb shank. our friend thought the salmon was excellent. wouldn't recommend it but wouldn't deter anyone who wanted to try it out. perhaps just need to try again, but will likely not do so.

We came to celebrate both an anniversary and a birthday and we were very pleased with the service we received. The food was brought to us in a very timely fashion and was delectable. My husband and I ordered the Seafood Paella For Two - it was outstanding! Our friends ordered meals that included an appetizer, an entree and dessert. They said the Brie appetizer was really good and their meals were also delicious.

Everything was great. The only complaint I have is that some of the tables are too close together so it can be difficult to have a private conversion or not be distracted by the table beside you.
