    Service was great, food was terrible. I have never been to a restaurant of any class where the chefs put a $65 steak back on the grill in pieces if undercooked. This specific to Cilantro on the Lake in which our reservation was transferred. Surprised Emerald Lake management didn’t do more to compensate for the closure of the main lodge by providing a better guest experience for the restaurant that did remain open. Much anticipated trip to this location - Very disappointed and will not be back.

    Food was absolutely amazing. Kitchen did an amazing job and service was impeccable from the hostess to server meals were very creative. Only thing that wasn’t perfect is due to the baseboard heating it was very hot in the section or seat we were in but that was a minor bump in a fantastic evening

    A nice place and atmosphere. Not too noisy. Great service and tasty food A little expensive at $200 for the 2 of us without drinks Needs a few more international wines. Very Okanagan orientated which is great but a few Italian or other options should be available and more by the glass. And a dry sparkling white like Prosecco in this day and age

    Etienne our waiter put our visit over the top. Every single thing we ordered was done and tasted to perfection. Tequila, wine, soup, scallops and 1 of THE BEST pork chop I’ve ever eaten. So flavorful and moist! We can’t wait to visit Emerald Lake Lodge again!

    The ambience of the restaurant is lovely. The service was good. The appetizers and dessert were both excellent, but both our main courses were much too salty. I know that restaurant food is saltier than what I would cook, but I don't usually find it too salty, and certainly not to the degree that it overwhelms the other flavours. If not for the salt our mains would have be excellent, but because of being too salty they were somewhat disappointing. There was enough selections for me (gluten free) and there was one selection in each of the sections that was GF and vegan (although it is not marked as such on the menu).

    We've ate here many times in the past and have always raved about it. Last night was a major disappointment, from the food quality to the overall service. The duck was ordered medium rare and came raw on one side and well done on the other side to the point red duck juice was all over the bottom of the dish. The chicken was very tender but rather bland. When we brought our issues to the server, we were informed that's the way things were supposed to be cooked and they wouldn't do anything. Next morning we had breakfast at the restaurant and they now only have a buffet and all the hot dishes were cold and we were told it was due to heating issues in the building and they couldn't keep the food warm. The quality level at the overall lodge has gone down drastically so we won't be back as the food was the only thing that kept us coming back.

    Our Server was Lisa, a lovely young lady who made the evening very special by being prompt, amiable and caring of my gluten free specific needs. The Alberta Beef was delicious, the vegetables good except the carrot, that did not see the boiling water long enough. Although the view was nil, the ambience was pleasant and we are returning this evening.
