The Lake House
The service and food are fantastic and keep us coming back for special occasions or just a nice treat in the middle of the week.
Great service and ambiance. The food was good but was lacking seasoning. Our steak and potatoes were not seasoned.
Loved it! Took my Significant Lady for her birthdays s we had a lovely time. Food was excellent
It was to celebrate our anniversary. And it was amazing! Would definitely recommend for a special night.
Our waiter (Darcy) was amazing and recommend a fantastic wine to go with our fantastic meal.
The food was decent, the noise level when it got busier was echoey and made it hard to converse. The instructions in the elevator were very confusing especially for elderly patrons, if this is the only access for disabled people, it is a very small space and an unusual elevator, with no emergency call button or anything. Was very off putting and can easily see how someone who was elderly and alone inside could become panicked.
Thank you for your review. I will email your comments to the property management. I am sorry you feel that it was off putting. Warm regards, The Lake House Management
Beautiful restaurant and views, service was friendly and prompt.
Mussels and frites
Sous vide chicken
Everything was very tasty!
Have been wanting to dine here for a long time and it was exactly what I had hoped for.
Good view. Good place to relax and get rid of stress.
Had our 20th Anniversary dinner on the patio overlooking the lake. Had a nice, quiet shady table overlooking the lake on a warm evening. Complementary champaigne to start. Excellent main course, drinks, desserts. Love this place! Thank you!
The best Halibut I have had in Calgary! I am from the East Coast so I know fish! The service was fantastic, the ambience and the view amazing!
We like to celebrate milestones at this restaurant. Great food, wine and ambiance.
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Was our 31st wedding anniversary and the food and service was great.
We went there for our anniversary, the service was excellent! However, we did not find the food was great. The soup was not very tasty, oysters were OK and the chicken dish was just average.
The Cesar that was served had way too much horseradish in it !
The room is open and very loud When there are groups of people laughing.
The complimentary drinks and chocolates were a nice treat.

Beautiful as always!! Great food, stunning atmosphere, amazing service!
Thanks to Kevin for setting up the rose ;)
Yes - I would recommend - but not for a special occasion. Was my husband's 50th and our window table got scooped by another server as we were walking to it. They gave us another window seat - and it was likely the worst in the restaurant - unless you like to look at building beams and an empty outdoor patio. No view of the lake for him.
When another full window table came open they didn't offer it to us.
It was so disappointing that we didn't even want to stay for dessert.
Hats off to the chefs - food was very good. Too bad the front of the restaurant does not match the experience.
Hi Christine, We have always held the policy that the window tables are non-reservable, upon booking you would have been notified from opentable. When you arrived there was a storm coming through (hence an "empty outdoor patio") and the patio guests are our priority as they have either food on the way or in front of them. If you decide to join us again, please feel free to ask to move to your preferred table once available. My apologies you did not enjoy the view from your window table.
Great place! The atmosphere and location was amazing. The view over the lake and location around the building was very nice. Food was outstanding and I would highly recommend it
We went here for mom’s birthday. We’re a bit early but luckily they let us in. Great food, great service!
We received complimentary glass of champagne and a happy anniversary note to recognize our special day.
The meals were excellent. A little loud though - it would be hard to have conversations with a table of more than 4.
Good morning Owen, Thank you very much for your lovely review, we apologize about the acoustics, last Monday was a very busy night in the restaurant. We look forward to your next visit. Warm regards, The Lake House Team
Taylor our waitress, is always amazing. Everyone there goes above and beyond to make your dining experience phenomenal
Thank you for your review. We agree. Our staff are fantastic! Warm regards, The Lake House Management
This was our first time at The Lakehouse and we had a wonderful time. Great food and service and you can't beat the ambience and view. Would definitely go back!
I found the restaurant to have great ambience. The service was amazing and the food was interesting (a lot to choose from). A nice place to go for a special occasion!
Good afternoon Kathy, Thank you for your wonderful review regarding your experience at The Lake House. We look forward to your next booking. Warm regards, Management
The food, service and location are outstanding. However, with nothing to absorb sound, it is a somewhat noisy restaurant, which was disappointing.
Lovely meal for our anniversary. Always impressed with the food and service. Our favourite restaurant ❤️
Amazing location. Great service. Incredible food. A great place for dinner
Beautiful restaurant on the beautiful Lake Bonavista! I’ve always admired it from the beach, so was happy to try it out for our ten year anniversary!
“Darce”, our server, was incredible and very congenial. Very on top of everything.
Food was pricey, but it’s quality. Totally worth it for going once in a blue moon :)
I could not have found a better place to take a beautiful woman on our first date! From the table we were seated at to the ambience to the impeccable service to the unbelievably delicious food, everything was picture perfect.
Great evening - would like to see a more senior menu as it’s a little foreign to some of the elderly. Loved it ourselves though and will be back.
Great place to eat. Pretty setting and great service!
Worst anniversary dinner in 18 years. So loud my husband and I couldn't hear each other. Our reserved table was next to a family table with little ones and mother's that could not use their inside voices.
Good afternoon Lori, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

You mentioned another table that was intrusive but if you could elaborate further on service and food and if there are any ways we can improve I'd love to hear more details. Please email me at .........
Group table full of kids watching videos and screaming was not good. People should go to McDonalds where other customers aren't paying good dollar to watch you try to parent. Nothing like watching a ten year old dictate to her parents how she will eat $50 a plate food while watching videos on her phone with no headphones.
The experience was very pleasant. I was very grateful to the hostess for still accepting our reservation even after arriving almost twenty minutes late. We were immediately seated and and was soon enjoy a lovely brunch with a great view of the lake and wonderful ambiance. Thanks everyone.
Good afternoon Gerald, Thank you for your lovely review regarding your experience at Brunch at The Lake House. We look forward to your next booking. Warm regards, management
Expectations were higher given the venue and prices. The food and service did not meet those expectations.

Both service and food were outstanding! We will definitely be back.
Great service. Fantastic cocktail menu and wine list. Food was amazing, specifically the smoked wild boar tenderloin. Our choice for celebrating those special occasions in life.
Great views, excellent staff and delicious food...they even made us a vegetarian option that was not on the menu. What else can one ask for!
Everything was very good, probably the best eggs Benedict I’ve ever had 😎
