party of 4. I had the Seafood Paella. I would consider it excellent. This is the second time having it, coming back to the Lake house specifically for it. This time the lobster claw was over cooked and dry. I will still come back for the paella just hoping the lobster claw won't be overcooked next time. They could also use more crackers for the lobster. Brought my own just in case.

Worth the drive! The snow along with the view of the lake made for a picture perfect Sunday brunch. Our server was attentive without hovering too much. The food was imaginative and delicious. I will definitely be recommending and hopefully returning soon!

First time we were out in about 2 years as a family (due to COVID). Food was outstanding and our server was excellent. Never felt rushed and didn’t have to wait for anything. Overall the night was great and we can’t wait to get back.

Great food & excellent service. I have to admit I really like the table spacing. Just enough room so you don’t hit someone else’s chair when you need to get up.

I had run short of ideas for dining in the Niagara area given a lot of places are on reduced hours. And I have recently been quite disappointed with the food quality at a few higher end places in southern Ontario. Also I was only in the area for a few days so I didn't want to do a bunch of searching. Then I saw The Lake House, situated on the shore of Lake Ontario, and decided some comparative analysis with the other The Lake House, situated on the shore of Lake Bonavista. The latter is one of our family favorites. Good choice! Excellent and timely service in a quiet dining area overlooking the lake. I started with the baked brie appetiser, which was well prepared but more warm than baked. Then I moved on to their baked cod on a bed of crustini-mashed potato (I think the Lake House description is more elegant) and asparagus. The cod was very moist and well adorned with delicate spices that complimented the subtle flavours. I topped it off with a small dessert of creme brulee, which was rich and a perfect way to finish off a great dinner. It all worked out well - I am a bit more fond of the western version of The Lake House but encourage you to try them both.

This is the best restaurant in the Niagara area hands down. We have been coming to the Niagara area for over twenty years and always drove right past the lake house. It was always busy looking but for some reason we never dined there until yesterday. Wow, we were impressed. The service was top notch. The food exceptional. One of us had the salmon and the other shrimp pasta. The atmosphere is beautiful. Our only regret is that we didn’t stop here sooner. Congratulations to the management and owners who are doing such a wonderful job. I thought the prices were very fair for what we ordered.

We really appreciated how the restaurant accommodated my 90 year old mother, who cannot eat garlic, and the two dishes she ordered were made without any garlic including the toast!

The food was good but pricey for what we had. The wine was VERY expensive. Considering I could buy a bottle of Riesling for $13 at the LCBO, $18 for a 9 oz glass was a bit of stretch. Two of the people in our party shared a 1/2 litre of a white wine and it was $29 which I thought was a lot considering the wine we ordered was nothing special. I've been a patron of The Lake House for a very long time and continue to eat there because of the view....not the food.

It is one of our favourite places. However, it has been a number of years since there has been anything new on the menu and for the last couple of years, maybe due to COVID, there has been no specials. Something different would be appreciated.

Great food, great service, but used to being in a quieter section. This was the first time we were at the back of the restaurant farthest from the door. The room was very loud and chaotic. I feel it would benefit from having 1-2 less tables as this was the first time back there and was not as enjoyable. We are used to being near the fireplace or by the water. Both areas seem much less busy and loud. Still a lovely night though.

It was our 24th wedding anniversary! The Brie appetizer was fantastic. The waitress was very attentive our main courses were excellent and they even brought us a free dessert for our anniversary. While we were there we were discussing coming back with our kids and there significant others.
