Had the Moroccan Lamb Shank. Was cooked to perfection. Others had the short ribs and salmon and enjoyed thoroughly. We were seated in the private dining room. Ambience was fantastic and it was very quiet. It’s where I always want to sit from now on. Hard to hear yourself think in the main level dining room.

Our friends decided last minute to bring their one year old - staff were more than accommodating with seating and nibblies for their baby. Food was excellent quality, lots of selection. Steak was cooked perfectly, Caesar salad, excellent too. There’s raved about the short ribs and risotto. We have been going there for years and will continue to do so

Too much background noise all of the time, and dishes sometimes came too quickly together. However, food quality quite good, although falafel appetizer too dry and overcooked. Also why serve chick peas and Hummus with falafel that is already made of chick peas ? Better perhaps to serve it with more vegetables and a salsa sauce .

Sam our server was amazing and Barb the manager is the best. She sent us a delicious cheesecake to the table for our anniversary. We will be back :)
Thank you so much 😊

Love the Lake House. Our server Leah was fantastic, the main course was definitely disappointing. We ordered the chicken marsala, the chicken was mechanically deboned chicken, something I'd expect from bar food,not a higher-end restaurant. The rest of the meal was great. Disappointed but we will be back to give it another try.
Regards, Teresa Upham

Enjoyed a very special birthday lunch for my mum on Saturday- the service was attentive, friendly, and they got everything right (little things like the runner knowing who’s plate is who’s makes a difference). The food was fantastic - we had calamari, fish tacos, shrimp “mac” & cheese, burger - everything was delicious. It’s impossible to complain about food arriving “too hot”, right? My 78yo dad is tough to please but he loved the fries and his meal. The coffee/lattes were perfect with the complimentary birthday cheesecake that had a caramel salt that made us want to lick the plate. Looking forward to coming back soon!

Was good unfortunately the menu was reduced, the personalized birthday service was ignored on the reservation the acoustics were horrible with regards to actually having a conversation with our guests.

All in all it is still a great service and the food is very consistent.

Thank you for another great memory. Well done.

Each time we head to Niagara, we’d see the packed parking lot and wonder what we were missing. We finally enjoyed a late lunch there and can’t wait to return! Our server, Isiah, was outstanding, the food, excellent! The baked Brie was out of this world, Caesar salad SO good, and no surprise that their burger was voted “Niagara’s Best”! Their cheesecake was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. Pizza’s looked mouthwatering good, and we’re looking forward to enjoying their prix fixe dinner soon! The lake view is gorgeous, and the atmosphere glorious. Could not have asked for a better dining experience!

Great atmosphere and lovely views of Lake Ontario. Menu is a bit limited with must items having either truffles or wild mushrooms but other than that a great place to eat.

The service was very good, wine very expensive. Not much variety on the menu, very limited selection not sure why? Took the grandsons, and found the experience ok but thought it would be better.

Have to be honest but I wasn’t very happy with our experience at this restaurant. The music was odd and didn’t fit the ambiance. . The menu was not the same as the one advertised on open table. The food flavours were overpowering and my salmon was over cooked and very salty. We spent way too much money for a subpar meal. The staff was wonderful but the food was a disappointment. I wouldn’t recommend.

Had a lovely meal at The Lake House, to celebrate a birthday. Steak and salmon dishes were great. Short ribs and lamb were extremely sweet!
All in all a nice evening out.

The pecan-crusted salmon was one of the best meals I have had. My husband liked his penne pollo. My friends were not happy with the chicken dish; that it was tough. The thanksgiving meal was fine. We ate inside, and there were empty tables to comply with social distancing. Parking lot is full, and its a huge place. Nice dinner on the road between Niagara and Hamilton.

Nothing to complain about but our experience would have been better if we would have been seated at the patio or the area with the windows. We were in the bar area with absolutely zero view.

The waitress did not meet the expectations of the level of service. She never updated us on why our meal was taking so long to prepare. The manager stepped up and discounted the menu. I will not return for a weekend visit.

This was the first time we have been that I wasn’t overly impressed with the good. It was very busy, very noisy and the food was just so so. Because every other experience was awesome I will put it down to being exceptionally busy over the holiday weekend. Would still recommend as I believe all restaurants are going through a bit of a transition period right now.

The dinner experience was terrific. When we arrived, the host was so kind, and then they gave us a cheerful welcome. The waiter was respectful and also gave us a unique and profound food recommendation. The food was delightful and adequate. And, they offered us a complimentary birthday cake that was so delicious, to finish we tasted a fantastic coffee. I highly recommend this cozy restaurant. We enjoyed our birthday celebratión.
