    Reserved Mother’s Day brunch and immediately received test messages confirming and then further reminders with confirmation request. We arrived 1 hour early as we happen to be already close by and decided to check in, maybe a table would be available! The hostess received us kindly and said sure let me check and found us a beautiful front room table near the window with a breath taking view of the lake and beautiful snow topped mountains. It was just perfect! Service was excellent and the Eggs Benedict was just perfect. No sense of being rushed but I did keep an I on the reception area to give up our table if needed. Overall a very pleasant dining experience and will return to try their dinner menu. Highly recommend this restaurant 😀
