The Lake House
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.
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. I'm sorry that your experience wasn't what you were expecting-- we try our best to be exceptional, and never want to settle for mediocre or average. 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.
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 😎
Awesome breakfast on the patio
As always The Lake House was amazing with everything they do!
Food was great. Service was great.
Noise level was atrocious.
Lack of a customer dress code was obvious everywhere.
For the prices you charge the customer experience is highly disappointing.
The table beside us was clearly drunk and noisy.
UP Your Game Lake House! Time to recapture that reputation for "Fine Dining" you once had.

Service was great. Food was average.
Pretty tacky to charge for tap water.
Good afternoon Stephen, Thank you for your recent review in regards to your dining experience. We use a company called Vivrea, an award winning water filtration system. This allows us to reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating the production, transportation, and disposal of pre-packaged bottled water and eliminate the packaging waste of single-use glass and plastic bottles. In the future, if you do not want to take advantage of this service please let us know.
The best thing we could have done. Patio, weather, food and service was impeccable. We'll be back!
Very underwhelmed by the lakehouse. I was looking forward to going there for some time. The food was bland and over priced. I wouldn't go back.
Great selection for breakfast menu. Ambiance and view are beautiful and quiet. Will be going back!
Great food, small menu, but food is well done. We sat on the patio, on a perfect evening, great date night.
Prices are good for upscale, it beats the chains in every aspect.
The rib eye.
Great little chocolates with the bill!
Will be back.
Highly recommend! Delicious food and excellent customer service.
We went for our anniversary. Had a window table which was nice to overlook the lake but.... felt extremely rushed through. Ordered the tomato salad which was recommended by the server to share and it came with 3 slices of a basic tomato with some dressing on it. Looked at the table next to us and they’re salads we’re full plates of beautiful different folded herloom tomatoes They were given bread We never got an offer. I ordered the lamb. $40 +. I got three fatty chops and a couple beans on the plate. Won’t go back. Felt let down.

Great evening, fabulous food, wonderful service!
Service was great! Food was amazing. We will definitely be back
Anniversary dinner- server added little touches and made a point of wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Awesome service, very attentive.
Great view , relaxed setting , imaginative well prepared menu
Deep and interesting wine list
High quality and fair prices — would go back in a heartbeat
Amazing time. Great food, excellent service from Darcy on the patio, and beautiful view. Such a hidden gem.
Beautiful room, wonderful staff, great food. A bit pricy, however the food is delicious. Would highly recommend
Great find. I hadn't been to this restaurant for 20 years. Went for brunch. Food was great, and good value. Service was good. I had a steak breakfast which was great, and a very reasonable price. I can't remember what my wife had, but it was good. My only complaint would be that it faces west, and we sat on the deck so we froze. They don't have heat lamps, and had run out of blankets. The deck likely gets the sun by about 2 PM, so it would be fantastic to come for dinner and watch the sunset, but it's really too cold to sit outside for brunch, even in the summer.
Good morning, Thank you for your review on OpenTable. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food and service but disappointed you did not enjoy our patio. The patio receives full sun around 12:30pm. We are unable to add heat lamps as we are a wood building and have a wood patio but I made sure to purchase more blankets. We hope to see you again on our patio when the temperature rises, it's been a mild summer so far.
Week days are the time to go. Food and service were excellent and we were not rushed.
Great place to dine. I had the rack of lamb that was outstanding . The twist on sticky toffee pudding was equally tasty. The service was friendly and prompt. Highly recommended.
All the food was delicious and the waiter was very attentive and polite. Sat outside and had a beautiful view over the lake.
Several months since I've been to The Lake House so it was great to be reconnected to the OUTSTANDING service and food. We were seated in a prime location with a wonderful view of the lake. The table had a steak-oriented vibe but I opted for the buttery rich arctic char. Baked just right and served on a bed of zesty rice made it tasty and hunger quenching. The dinner ended with an infusion of sticky-yummy dessert sugar bomb gelato caramel heaven...a Lake House speciality.
We had company in from the US so decided to have a nice dinner out and the Lake House didn’t disappoint! The service and food were phenomenal (as usual) and you can’t beat the view - I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing view, great ambience.
Food was good.
Lovely dinner at the Lakehouse. Great food and service, only thing that would’ve made our night better was if we were able to have a table by the window, but unfortunately it was too busy on a Saturday evening.
Excellent choice for our anniversary. The service was a highlight.
Outstanding brunch at The Lake House. The food and service was excellent. We had a table by the window so we had a great view of the lake.
We celebrated our anniversary at The Lake House and were happy with our choice. Our anniversary was acknowledged with complimentary prosecco - a nice, appreciated touch. The heirloom tomato and romaine lettuce salads lived up to expectation. The mains, rack of lamb & ribeye exceeded expectations and convinced us we'll have to return for another meal. The service was timely and sincere - thanks for helping have a very nice evening.
