    The saddest part of the dinner was the bottle of Caymus Cab wasted on this meal. The pickerel which the waitress recommended was not seasoned- the blueberry sauce which was the highlight of the dish was meh and too little. The “risotto” on the side was a mushed cheesy rice resembling something you squeeze out of an uncle Ben rice packet microwaved for too long…. The best was confused attempt at an Asian fusion pasta dish with tough pieces of meat with zero flavour- it was an insult to Asian and Italian cuisines alike… you’d think we would ask for the check and run out at this point but no… we ordered dessert- blueberry tart smothered in a yellow lemony sauce with something as sharp as a toothpick in it that cut my gum- they said it’ was an unblended piece of rhubarb- chocolate mousse was palatable and cheesecake just ok… Never again.

    We’ve been coming to Rawley Lodge for many years now. The setting is lovely overlooking the lake and across to Christie’s Mill as well. While the owners and atmosphere have changed over the years, it’s still a lovely spot for a getaway or just dinner.

    Unfortunately I can’t speak for the food. We traveled 37km to enjoy the brunch at 11AM at the resort since it is advertised on the website as well as on open table. Only to learn upon arrival that brunch wasn’t being served after 11AM. To our disappointment we had to leave to find breakfast somewhere else. It would’ve been helpful to have that information beforehand stated in the menus.

    Unfortunately, we did not have a good dinner service. The ambience was beautiful and we were looking forward to our reservation -- but service was not attentive (i.e. did not receive bread, cutlery was cleared and had to track someone down to get more to eat mains, water was not refilled and I think we waited ~20mins for bill and that was after we got up to ask our server for please). The meals were also not executed well and we felt it was very expensive. We all love to eat but all four of us at the table did not finish our mains. Our server did not ask if we wanted anything packed up to go either, so maybe it happens there. We were staying over night and the rest of our stay was great. If meal was successful we would return, but for the cost and what our experience was like we will not be back.

    Arrived , ordered appetizer then main course . The main meals arrived and the appetizer somehow forgotten . I ordered the 14 oz ribeye steak (outrageous price ) med rare . It was blue rare . My wife’s Halibut and shrimp was amazing as well as dessert and cappuccino. We live local and have always supported rawley but I’m not sure a bill for two people at 170 dollars for 2 main courses , one cheese cake , one cappuccino and a bottle of fizzy water is feasible for us . We really love the place

    There were 4 of us for lunch, and there was only 1 other couple in the restaurant. Our appetizers took 1/2 hour to arrive and lunch about 1/2 after that. Out of the 4 of us only 1 meal was o.k. Two of the meals were sent back for being undercooked and when they were re-served, they were practically burnt. Except for the view, very disappointed.

    My wife & I went up for the night & were absolutely blown away by everything. The resort is absolutely gorgeous, our cabin was perfect but the best part was the food. We had dinner & breakfast. We started w/ the cheese spinach dip which was amazing & both had steak. Hands down the beat steak I've ever had. For breakfast I had eggs ben & she had the pemeal sandwich both were out of this world. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was incredible, we can't wait to go back.

    I have been to Rawley many many times over the last 15 years. Alway my favourite spot for family birthdays and celebrations. There have been ups and downs over the years. I definitely feel an upswing now with service, meals, ambiance and entertainment. Had an awesome time in every way last evening. My waiter was very polite and professional. The glazed salmon dinner was perfect!! Shawn Mei, the pianist, was so welcoming. His musical skills, I believe have been formerly described as "like the Billy Joel of the North." Great repertoire and lots of fun! Beautiful setting and beautifully decorated. I will continue to visit as it is my favourite resort in this area. It's just getting better! You won't be disappointed.

    Only one waiter to serve and bar tend. Food was cold . Do not mind spending good money on fine dining we had steak it came with tasty vegetables but home fries did not go with a steak dinner. For desert apple pie a la mode and the pie was almost as cold as the ice cream. We moved up here three years ago and thought we would stay local to celebrate Valentine’s Day and we were both very disappointed after spending over 200 dollars. We have been here in the past and it was great but not now. I do not know if it is under new management or not there was only six couples in the place at our booked dinner time so the service should have been a lot better to get a second glass of wine we had to get the person who cleared our dishes to get it for us. The waiter finally came back when it was time to give us the bill.

    Beautiful surroundings, great staff, had to wait quite a while for our meals, likely due to the typucal staff shortages that are everywhere these days. Other than that, the piano player provided an excellent ambience for the evening. Not aware of any other restaurant/resort of this caliber in the local area. Will surely be back !

    Our dinner was a last minute plan so are thankful we got a reservation and made so easy on open table . The restaurant was busy but they told us up front there might be a delay but we are on vacation so in no rush and the view is amazing on the patio. We both had the menu special which was delicious I had the vegetarian pesto linguine and would go back just to have it again. Would love to see it on the regular menu. We have been often and are never disappointed. We will be back and glad to see businesses getting back to normal again

    We live near Rawley and it is fabulous every time we eat here. From the food to service to the location. We had the tuna salad, calamari and pickerel. The food is absolutely amazing. We finished with donuts you dip in sauce. We were completed full and it was so nice to get out the house. We would highly recommend dining here and you won't be disappointed.
