Another dinner experience

Was a good night and the menu was quite good. Nice setting in the hotel with plenty of room. I had steak for dinner this night and it wasn't cooked properly. I asked for medium rare and received something that was very rare in the centre. I could have squeezed the blood out of it. I ate around... read more

Looked forward to a nice dinner but was disappointed. The specialty was veal stuffed with crab and pasta on the side. It was inedible, far too salty. I know good chefs use lots of seasoning and that's ok with me but this was so salty you could hardly taste the veal. The crab stuffing was just ok and the overcooked... More

My husband enjoyed his meal. My so called veal saltimboca was wrapped in prosciutto on all sides, over cooked and topped with a dark brown gravy, not a light pan jus. There was little or no sage and the was entirely to much prociutto. My sons spaghetti was simply overcooked. I know fresh pasta, i i know al'dente pasta and... More

We had dinner at this restaurant. The fish and meat items were overcooked. Every possible food item was draped in bacon. The veal was overcooked and pasta (out of the box) was under-cooked.

Although the menu is short on pasta and heavy on pizza, this restaurant offers some great classic dishes. The pollo aroso, black cod and osso bucco are outstanding. The wine list was adequate and the waitress was attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable.

Came here on a Bus tour. Superb service. There was an afternoon buffet set up for the tour groups (may not be available for non tour customers). Salad, pork, chicken, fish dishes, great desserts, fresh fruit, various rolls, hot side dishes (continous refills). Guide said that the buffet was around $65 Canadian per person. The food may not match the... More

We ate dinner at Lago one evening while staying at the Chateau. The service and menu are outstanding. For an Italian restaurant, the selection of Italian wines is quite disappointing. However we found a nice Brunello di Montalcino which was quite tasty. The food came and it was well prepared however lacking flavor. Given the amazing surroundings and price of... More

Wonderful Food and Wine yes but these were surpassed by the service of happy and helpful staff/ The restaurant had an Italian inspired menu so we experienced a taste of Italy in the Canadian Rockies. We had difficulty selecting a red and white wine for the meal and the bar manager was excellent in providing advice and allowing us to... More

If you like your pasta over cooked and sticking together, this is your place. How about flat beer? Both brands of tap beer were as flat as an aircraft carrier landing deck. The food was nicely spiced, but poorly prepared. One saving element was the fantastic server, Madeline, who did a great job. Unless things change for the better, I... More

The food was fantastic and the service was even better. Everything from pasta to wood fired pizza. I had the ravioli which was homemade with short ribs. The best I've ever had.
