I have to say, I was not that happy today. Started with the Classic Caesar salad. The dressing was oddly eggy and sweet. Not savoury or garlicky enough. My main, based on a recommendation was the Canadian burger. It was just okay and certainly did not deliver on it's $20 price tag. To be clear, I've paid way more for a burger and been ecstatic so it's not that I'm just cheap. First off, a little closer to medium doneness would have helped it immensely. (at least as an option) Most offensively, the Maple chipotle aioli is so sweet it reads as pancake syrup on a burger (not in a good way). Should use WAY less maple and amp up the chipotle because there was no spice at all. Fries were dry. I think they were coated in corn starch. I would lose that and fry them a little less. It would read more fine dining and less fast food. After requesting a table with a view at time of reservation, we were seated in a corner with no sightlines at all and no explanation why despite there being other more suitable tables available (my guest was already seated when I arrived). On a positive note, the decor refresh makes the place thankfully and necessarily much brighter and also, our server was quite pleasant. My overall lunch experience, however, left a lot to be desired, and for the first time after several visits, I find myself in no hurry to return to the Lake House. Can I also say that schlepping through a muddy parking lot on a rainy day does not seem right for this caliber of establishment. It appears to me that the place is successful enough that you could afford to pave the parking lot.
The restaurant was beautiful great staff but the food wasn’t anything great average $100 for dinner
Fantastic food, and overall experience.
My wife and I haven't been here for a few years. The renovations were very well done. The food is very well prepared and service is excellent. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about there menu and their specials of the day. We arrived 40 minutes ahead of our reservation with the request of special seating. We were prepared to sit at the bar until our table was ready and to our surprise we only had to wait 5 minutes and our request was granted. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and I was pleasantly surprised that the bill was much less then I thought it would be, even with the wine we ordered. I would completely recommend this restaurant to anyone. We plan on returning soon and often.
Second time at this restaurant. Food was great first time. This time i was so disappointed , couldnt finish my meal. My chicken was hard and chewy, potatoes were cole. Good restaurants are consistent with the quality and prep of their food. Definately wont be going back.
A lovely meal - prix fixe menu. Visiting my son at Brock University with his grandmother. Very nice setting and a tasty meal. Shelley, our server was very pleasant.
Lovely setting, great service.We definitely will be back!
Have been here many times. Great renovations!!! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to eat. 👍
Great food and atmosphere . Best Ceaser ever! Enjoyed our calamari to start. After receiving our appetizer we experienced a long wait till receiving our mains. other than that everything was great.
Way to open and noisey, tables are way to close together.... no romance when my elbows almost touch the person next to me, trying not to hear my neighbours conversations but was so loud. Then wait staff having to squeeze through ( not their fault) and bumping our table ... our waitress was very nice and attentive and I will say my steak was cooked perfectly, loved my meal. My husband wasent as fond of his, said his was very bland flavour. Won't be back for any romantic dates we have
The renovation has made a positive impact on the overall vibe and dining experience.
It was Monday night, but still a lot of people there.
This was a let down, we came here for an early Valentine’s Day dinner and have never been. I was really hoping for some great Mediterranean food and instead only saw 2 or three things that were actually “Mediterranean”. I ordered the risotto and it was soupy and way over salted. The chicken was dry and bland. The atmosphere was good but I felt like the youngest couple there! (early 40’s)
New atmosphere is fantastic! Love the new look. Our server Katie was the best, she was fun and helpful! She knew just when to come to the table each and every time without hovering. Great team at The Lakehouse!
Absolutely superb restaurant beautifully decorated with beautiful view of lake. Our meals were excellent.
Fabulous as always
Start of a vacation
Love this restaurant although my entree wasn't as good as it usually is.
Lakehouse was absolutely amazing. Evening on a snowy cloud day, the view of the lake was beautiful, the service was impeccable, and the food was great! Can't wait to make the drive out here again from Scarborough!
Wonderful as always. They never disappoint. We ordered off the prix fix and the regular menu. Everything was perfect.
