    Great experience. I do wish for more non alcoholic options besides “we can make any cocktail without the booze”. Only option for a creative non alcoholic option was the blackberry fizz. It was great but would love to see a cocktail list/non alcohol beer options for those who prefer not to imbibe. That would have rounded out the meal.

    We had a wonderful evening! The decor is beautiful, the service was lovely and the food was absolutely delicious. The truffle risotto came recommended and did not disappoint and the lamb shank was the largest serving of lamb shank I’ve ever seen, and it was cooked to your desired temperature which was ideal. Would definitely come back!

    Food was great, it's a pretty restaurant and the service was good. Our only complaint is we were the only people in there and they placed us in the corner next to the kitchen. It was super awkward feeling and noisy. If the restaurant was full it would have felt fine but as we were the only people there it was not enjoyable.

    The food was excellent! The atmosphere was just right. The tables are well spaced and the noise level allowed for conversation. The only minus was the length of time it took to get our food.. two and a half hours for three courses! Yikes! We thought our server had forgotten us… I will be back for the food! Yum!

    Very disappointing experience. It took an hour to receive our amuse bouche and in this time we had been offered one drink and finished it. Service was inattentive. We had to ask for another drink. Starter was good, generous portions. Steak was cooked to my preference but luke warm. The cheesecake and lava cake dessert was also delicious. However I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to others

    Honestly the food was amazing!!!!! Couldn’t be happier. My one critique was the service. The server was all over the place and blamed him not coming to say hi for 15 minutes because the host didn’t tell him we were there… he walked past about 5 times!! Drinks took quite a long time to come and he didn’t know the cocktail menu at all and said the whole menu & drinks list was new… it’s his job to know what’s on the menu! I always love the food at Nita and the ambiance and decorations but I’ve always found the service super slow and a bit disorganized. Still had a great time and I’ll for sure be back again.

    We returned this year to enjoy a night away. We booked at the Den, thinking a quiet evening 'in' would be great. We sat for close to 20 minutes at a table with no service. No 'hello' from the waiter or anyone. It would have been nice to have been started with a beverage. The second waiter who helped us was very nice, but it was obvious he had picked up our table to help out. We ordered the lamb and the risotto to share. The waiter did not ask our preference for rare, medium, well done, etc. Our lamb was beyond rare and fatty. For $55, I could have done a better job at home. Our risotto was so salty we had to send it back. Thankfully we did not pay for the risotto and the chef apologized. For the price, the experience was sub optimal and we won't dine there again.

    Dined here mid-week in off season (Nov). Do not recommend visiting at this time. Noise: Ask to be seated away from kitchen. We were originally seated next to the kitchen. Sounded more like a bustling bistro than a romantic restaurant. There was blaring music, clanging pots, orders printing, banter between chefs, etc. We asked to move and they obliged. It was quiet and pleasant in the front of the room. Service: Cordial, but inattentive. We waited 20-40 minutes between courses. On two occasions, while serving the table next to us, our waiter said "your food will be ready in a couple minutes." He was way off and never came back to check on us. We wanted more wine. We wanted to order coffee with our dessert. But there was nobody around to ask. Food: Standard family hotel fare. Nothing to delight or offend. Amuse-bouche was a basic pickled beet and goat cheese on a crostini. Pork belly was was cooked well, but sat in an oddly deep pool of broth. Steak was cooked well, but could have used more seasoning. Vegetables had been on the plate too long. The puree was dried out and the charred carrots were soggy. Pretty sure I've had the exact same toffee pudding at a dozen other restaurants. You know the one that sits next to lava cake on the menu that they defrost and serve on request. Vibe: Coziest part of the hotel. Lighting was nice. Music at the front of the room was lively, but not overpowering. The decor was not my style, but it was cozy and warm. The resto was only half full, so it wasn't an energetic atmosphere. Value: Quantity over quality Only option was a $39 3-course set menu. We both ordered the steak for +$16. Portion sizes were med-large. Both left very full. However, the experience was not worth the $200+ price tag (after wine, tax and tip). We couldn't wait to leave. I'm not the target audience and won't be back. But if you want to check this place out I suggest waiting until busy season.

    For the three course meal at Nita Lake, our server was exceptional, prompt, polite, attentive, and personable. The amuse bouche, appetizer and dessert were very good, but the vegetarian main courses were bland. Music was too loud, but the atmosphere was cozy.

    We were attracted to the fall 3 course menu offering several vegan options as well as fish and meat. The poached salmon appetizer was perfectly done and the vegetable accompaniments were paired well. The eggplant steaks were a novel idea,well cooked…possibly a little less olive oil in the cooking of them for my taste,but delicious no the less. The cheese sampler dessert was enormous…take home for many snacks worth, The staff were wonderful,attentive,sincere with good timing in the courses and adequate post dinner relaxation. You will not be disappointed!
