After seeing other plates..It looks... More

Our experience left us a little disappointed. The food is superb and the service was good. Prices a little on the steep side. For some reason the kitchen is not separated from the dining area. The fans were on continuously and detracted from what would otherwise have been a lovely dining experience. Although we went early, reservations would have been... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner on Saturday 28th June. First impressions from the outside were not good, The sign could be upgraded as it does not reflect the food or the service that is shown inside. We had reservations for 5:30 and arrived 20 minutes early and were seated right away. The waitress was very good, we were... More

Went to the Lake Grill for my boss's retirement supper. It was great!! I had the shrimp tempura for a starter and it was huge. 6 large battered shrimp with some deep fried chips that totally tasted perfect. For a main course I had the 12 ounce grilled rib eye steak and it was also a real treat. You need... More

Tremendously enjoyable evening. Great food and terrific, very pleasant service. We've been three different times and had different items from the menu. Not been disappointed ever. Our suggestion: make sure it is on your list of great dining places.

First visit to the great hidden gem in Whitby. Celebrated our anniversary with friends. All entrées were fantastic. The seafood was the best. The decor, staff, presentation of food all perfect. Chef Jose did a wonderful job. Will definitely go back.

We visited after walking the Waterfront Trail. They are only open on Sat. and Sun. for a brunch type of breakfast. They open at 9:00a.m. and by 10:00, they are filled to capacity. All the meals come with coffee or tea and a small fruit bowl. They have the basics, such as western omelets, french toast, bacon and eggs, but... More

The food and service is good but the restaurant is very cramped when crowded. I was there with a party of about 12 and the restaurant was quite busy so the space was very limited. Generally speaking, I would recommend this restaurant. Tasty food and reasonable prices.

It was my birthday and we were off to lunch which is our habit. Two people suggested The Lake Grill so we were sure we were going to have a good experience. The Grill is in a location that you would not expect down by the Lake and it is a small property so I am told you need reservations,... More

The Original Combinations of fresh ingredients, seasonings, tastes, and textures confirm award-winning Chef Hose is a true Culinary Artist! It is the care, detail and pride he puts in every dish that makes it outstanding. The warm, welcoming atmosphere coupled with the excellent service make this a perfect Dining Experience!
