Our children got us a great take out dinner from the Lake Grill for our 50th wedding anniversary since we were in lockdown and could not celebrate together. We had a cesar salad and calamari for appetizers, then Seafood di mare and veal picata for...a main course and a lovely bottle of white wine. It was fabulous. Our son picked it up and delivered it to us and it arrived hot and perfect. A bun with butter completed the meal. It was sensational and exactly what we expected from Chef Jose.More

Small and quaint place that's great for couples and family with a personal touch. Although it's not the fine dining experience it's that small town restaurant feel.

This was our first time eating here. The food here was excellent. We shared the curry mussels which were very yummy. I had the grilled chicken curry linguini and my honey got the lobster ravioli . We were both very pleased with our choices. Our...service was pretty good as it was very busy and it is during the Covid era. I would definitely recommend eating here.More

For a fine dinning restaurant, I was blown away on how ignorant the owner of this restaurant is in regards to Covid-19. Chef Jose walking around greeting people without a mask? Using paper menu's?? ( how are you supposed to wipe them down after people...touching them?) You guys re-use the paper menu's with visible fingerprints from other people who have used & touched them. Either dispose of them or have them plastic covered in order to be able to wipe menu's .down. No sanitation station coming out of the bathroom hallway/area. The patio tables were disgustingly sticky. I was here for a birthday party & will never return. All the owners care about is money & you can clearly tell by the cheaply made patio. Flies & bugs everywhere outside. Scallops & shrimps used to be jumbo.. now, they are tiny & still paying the price for this seafood.More

We started with the bruschetta and had the seafood pasta and seared haddock for dinner. The food was delicious and fresh tasting as usual. We loved the continual checkins from the server and the chef along with the conversation about the food. we appreciated the...time put into creating the patio in the parking lot and letting us have a dinner "out". Thank you!More

Location by the lake is great. Service is good. The food is good but way too pricey. I guess it is due to the location.

Excuse me sir, I'm afraid we're temporarily closed for weeks now because of COVID-19, wondering what day you came by. Otherwise, sorry for the inconvenience.

Have lunch there every few weeks. Everything's freshly prepared. Salmon, stir fry and chicken piccata are faves. Nice they still serve wine by the carafe, which is good for two people. Service is always great and everyone is genuinely friendly.

It was rich creamy but not great for the price we paid. Service was fine. We were almost the only ones in there.
