The food is alright but slightly expensive. No vegetarian options. There is a cafe attached which sells cheaper food like sandwiches on the side. We overlooked it otherwise would have dined there. Lake view is the only thing good there.

After a long day at gorgeous emerald lake I wanted something hot for dinner so we stopped by here. What a mistake. DO NOT EAT HERE UNLESS YOU LIKE GETTING RIPPED OFF AND COLD FOOD!! Ordered the pork ribs thinking yum! Before my food was served I could hear the next table as they paid their bill saying the food... More

Great service with a spectacular patio view. The food is pricey but good. The selection allows most people to find something tempting.

Nothing good to say about this place except for its location. And TripAdvisor wants me to say more! I got nothing. Really.

Really pretty setting for a relaxing drink after a busy day. It has lovely views looking over the lake. The only downside is we arrived late afternoon and they had stopped serving food and there wasn't anything nearby to get a snack.

The food is fine, the terrace overlooks the lake and there is really no other choice at Emerald Lake. It's a place for a good quality snack meal rather than a fine dine.

It's all about sitting outdoors watching canoes go by on the Emerald green lake. Food and service is good. Bring a jacket as the breeze off the mountain lake does get chilly

Had lunch outside at Cilantro on a beautiful sunny day. Gorgeous setting w/torquise blue waters right next to you. Good food, good drinks....memorable lunch! Highly recommend.

.... even if the staff is a bit burned out, stressed or whatever, ignoring potential guests to be seated, while blissfully and leisurely carrying on with whatever, is just not in the cards. Even more so when the the indoor section is completely empty and there is plenty of empty seating on the patio. Top that with a snarky "you... More
