My partner and I are foodies and decided to give this restaurant a shot. The food was absolutely amazing but must admit that we have had better service in the past. Not saying the service was bad it just wasn’t memorable.

Took a friend here for a birthday lunch. Pleasant atmosphere because of lovely locaton, good service, but meal was not exceptional. Standard fish and chips, chips appeared to be from a package.

Food was okay. Portions were small and, price was insane. 3 scallops and 2 popcorn shrimp over $40. Two small pork tenderloin medallions and a tiny pork belly over $40. Go up the street to Wellingtons and get a beef Wellington for the same price...as either of these. Insane they are asking these prices for so little and simple food, even with inflation this place is out to lunch (literally) on the menu prices.More

The atmosphere in the restaurant with views of lake Bona Vista were incredible. The appetizers and mains were outstanding and the wine recommended by our server to pair with our meal was perfect. Our server Darcy was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would absolutely recommend for...date nights or occasions.More

We visited The Lake House for our first wedding anniversary last month and were so impressed. It is gorgeous in there when it’s dark, the fire going and the pretty lights. The food was great, I had the lamb and my husband had the bison....We received complimentary champagne for our anniversary. The service was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back one day.More

With more people vaccinated and restaurants finally open in the summer after the lockdown, we decided to eat here. We could only get a table on a weekday, weekends were all booked until the end of summer. This was our first time here, we arrived...for dinner at around 7 pm and could not get a window table. If you want to get a window table, try to be there as early as you can specially if you are a group of more than four. The restaurant was quite busy and a little noisy. Tables were well spaced. We started by sharing a charcuterie board which was not elaborate but had great choices of salami, ham and pickles accompanied by bite-sized rye bread. For my entree I ordered the Peri peri marinated Haloumi cheese and it was absolutely delicious. The quinoa was so flavourful. My friends ordered the Duo of Alberta Lamb which tasted great as well. My friends also ordered the Pinot Noir as recommended by our server Darcy that went well with the lamb. Darcy was nothing short of a rockstar. He was so warm, friendly and very attentive. Overall the service was exceptional. We were full after the appetizer and entrée so for the dessert all of us shared a Sticky Toffee Pudding, which tasted very well. Some of us ordered coffee, I wish the coffee was a little more warm. Yes it is a bit pricey, but quality of food and service are top-notch. If I had one complaint - it would be that I could not get a table by the window and enjoy the gorgeous lake view.More

Pleasant setting. Beautiful view of the lake. Fancy table cutlery and napkins, extended wine selection. Food portions very generous, friendly service. Good coffee selection. Elegant crowd of customers at lunch. Quiet, distanced and safe environment.

Such a beautiful setting in amongst the fall colours surrounding the lake. Staff are extremely knowledgeable on the food and lengthy wine list. We had an appetizer, main and dessert and was quite full afterwards. What a flavour explosion in every mouthful from start to...finish. We started with the crab and salt cod samosas and Heirloom tomatoes and prosciutto. Followed by cured bison striploin and beef ribeye. The vegetables that went with both were so well prepared and paired nicely with the meat. Didn’t think we would have room but we then managed the peach creme brûlée and peanut butter swirl cheesecake….absolute heaven. We will be back.More

6:30 pm dinner reservations did not disappoint. There is plenty of free parking in front and then proceeded to the second floor main dining room. There is patio seating as well, and they were full. The appetizers we chose were brilliant, We started with the...salads, and then enjoyed oysters as we were perched right by the window. The shades were drawn down as the sun reflecting of the lake was intense. The main course chicken entree was cooked perfectly and so tasty. By 8pm we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset as the shades were just raised to open a spectacular view of the entire Lake Bonavista. Over the course of the meal, it was exciting to see many water activities being done by the residents living nearby. Special thank you to Aislinn for being a fantastic waitress ensuring we were looked after every step of the way. We're coming back the next time we are in Calgary for sure. You should go.More

We were surprised by the entrance to the restaurant as it has professional offices downstairs. Our waitress was pleasant and we were directed to a lovely table with a view of the lake. We enjoyed our meals which were cooked to perfection - scallops and...hazelnut crusted cod and were delicious. Our waiter was attentive, but not intrusive. We loved the view! The tables were socially distanced and we felt safe while dining.More
