Five of us went and had a beautiful lunch looking out at the frozen lake. We loved the ambiance. Thank you we will be back.
Always a great experience. We had the cheese board and charcuterie to share with some wine and it's so delicious. Recommend it for the service and views too.
We had a lovely lunch and will definitely be returning!
Great location, good food, excellent service.
Amazing environment the moment you walk in. Gorgeous view overlooking the lake. We had unreal service from Darcy he made the whole experience very memorable for us, he recommended everything we ate and all of the dishes were incredible! He also perfectly paired an unusual wine with our steak , we appreciated that he went above and beyond and also a great sense of humor! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We will certainly be back!!
A great place to spend an evening!! Very enjoyable!
Our server was excellent!
We had an excellent evening & possibly the best meal we have eaten in Calgary restaurant since moving here in 1987. The staff worked together in a professional manner of people who enjoyed their work and were proud to show it.
More than We had expected. As it would seem to be nice and comfortable. I didn't expect it to be a memory. Something to remember. Food was awesome great price and portions. I can't wait to get a party together just to sit at the bar. It's a relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for everything.
Thank you so much for those kind words AmericaK and the 5 star review!! We truly appreciate it! We look forward to your next visit with us. The Lake House Team
A great place for relax conversation and food. The hospitality is outstanding. Entree and dessert are exquisite. Pics will share it all.
This was the perfect place!!!!! cannot wait to return. staff went above and beyond to make our anniversary date perfect
Thank you for DakotaC for the 5 star review!! We truly appreciate it and are so happy to hear you enjoyed your anniversary! We look forward to your next visit with us. The Lake House Team
We had great service however the food somehow this time was not as good. We had visited a few weeks prior for brunch and the hash brown potatoes were crispier, the hollandaise fresher and this Sunday the short rib hash was more like corned beef. I don’t know why but was less impressed this time.
The window view at this restaurant is fantastic as you overlook the lake . Our waiter YVES provided excellent service and guidance with the menu. Our food was tasty and served at the right intervals. Granted their business was slow that night however we were welcomed by all the staff and it suited us well for a 49 anniversary dinner.
This is a lovely restaurant and most people thought their food was delicious. Unfortunately my friend and I had the fish and chips. The fish was very greasy and overcooked. That evening w felt a little queasy. Apart from that the waitress as attentive, polite and efficient and everyone enjoyed the get together.

Great experience! Our server was lovely and really down to earth. The food was delicious, however the kitchen was out of chicken so it limited some options. Cocktails were fantastic though!
The food was amazing, the service and the atmosphere both were fantastic. I could have not asked for anything more. A lot of places in Calgary are over rated but this is not one of them, If I could give this place 10 stars, I would give them 11
Great place, with AMAZING food & service, that’s complete with a beautiful view. Must try!
Everything we ordered was delicious. Good portions and beautiful view looking forward to visiting during the summer when the lake ist frozen. Staff were friendly and helpful very prompt service without hovering it was fantastic highly reccomend
It was nice to return to this venue after many years absence. The views over Lake Bonavista are really nice. The food and service were excellent. Our only problem was back ground noise - it was hard to hear my wife speak at times.
The food was okay but not much value for your buck in the current times we live in.
Wonderful service, attentive waiter. Perfect blend of seasoning and the meat and fish were cooked to perfection. Desert was lovely can’t go wrong with apple pastry and sticky toffee pudding.
Definitely did not walk away hungry.
The view was amazing and nice and cozy by the fire place.
Great food service and view can't wait to see it in the summer.
Very good food good service. Very nice restaurant definitely will go back
Amazing Chilean sea bass special! Should offer this all the time! Excellent sticky toffee pudding as well
The Lake House never disappoints, the food, service and atmosphere are priceless.
Had the Ribeye and it didn't really taste like much. No seasoning or the bone marrow jue that they spoke about. I've had way better steaks for the same or less. My wife had the salmon which she said was very good and would like to go back.Diner with wine was $500 and I'm ok with that I just think a little more seasoning would go a long way
Great Valentine’s Day service. The menu and wine pairing were a hit. I will definitely be returning to try out the regular menu
We went for valentines and everything was delicious
We arrived a bit early with the intention of sitting at the bar for a cocktail. The host was very kind and accommodating, showing us a few tables to see if we liked the locations before proceeding to seat us early, which was lovely. They brought our drinks, we were enjoying being together alone, talking. We were there to enjoy a lovely romantic valentines dinner together, having never been to the Lakehouse before, we were quite excited. Then our server arrived and it quickly went down hill. He was overbearing from the start, approaching our table and interrupted our conversation and dinner every 3-4 minutes. He rushed us through each course, no time to enjoy anything. Disappointing. Finally we asked him if he was able to calm down, that he was too pushy.. his response was “I have 6 tables!” And he walked away. Rude, overbearing, inconsiderate. This is your job, I am your guest... 6 tables of 2 in a sea of 50 tables should be easy with a set menu. His only goal was to flip the tables as fast as he could. There was no consideration. First and last time we will dine at the Lakehouse, which is truly unfortunate. Our bill was well over $200 for their valentines set menu so leaving $0 tip was a no brainer. Very unfortunate for the host, bar and kitchen staff as they were all very lovely. I wonder if we were the only ones who thought that. Not so Happy Valentines.😕
Mrs. Gauthier, we strive to ensure all guests receive excellent service as well as delicious food. Your server (Darcy) has had nothing but raving reviews on OpenTable and Google and we are sorry he wasn't up to your expectations. The Lake House
Darcy was our waiter for Valentine’s Day and the meal was absolutely amazing! Stellar service by Darcy! Would 100% recommend and go back time and time again for service like that.
We decided to try the Lake House for the first time on Valentine’s Day. Big mistake! It was a prix fixe menu and was extremely disappointing. The prosciutto asparagus was so overcooked that it should not have even been served. The chicken was so underwhelming my date barely touched it. Overall, we were thinking we were eating a meal at a cheap wedding buffet. On the bright side, the wine pairing was spectacular! Overall experience was awful and shame on the Lake House for such an experience.

I booked the valentines dinner 1 month out. On feb 12 the restaurant called and said the menu changed and they are doing a set 5 course menu. First course - Oysters. Not my taste second course - lobster lasagna not my taste and desert was also fixed and had significant sugars which does not work for a diabetic. So I had a small salad and chicken. We went for the experience but stopped on the way home to eat. Updating people two days before valentines leaves no options to rebook a restaurant. The restaurant should have planned better letting the people know the set menu. The cost was about $230 with diet cokes and tip. Not including the meal I ate on the way home.
Thank you Gary for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were not made aware of the 4 course menu until 2 days prior to your reservation. We post our menu for Valentines at least 6 weeks out on social media and our website. I wish you would have informed management that night that you were disappointed to allow us make your experience better. Please email me at .......... if you would like to discuss this further.
Darcy was a fantastic server. Made the meal even better.
Great dinner in a great location with excellent service!
