This restaurant, tucked away on the south side of 401 off Brock St. in Whitby was very inviting, with great service, mellow ambiance and perfectly prepared meals. Each came with a beautiful presentation and satisfying portions. I cannot comment on wine list or dessert as we were there mainly for the main courses. We were pleasantly surprised & would definitely... More

I've been several times for dinner but his was my first lunch experience. The smoked salmon wrap with a mixed salad and balsamic vinaigrette was delicious! Another at my table had the cream of broccoli soup and the California wrap and she raved about it too. At noon the restaurant was empty but by 12:30 it was packed! I'm glad... More

I had heard good things about this restaurant from friends. So I was expecting something good, but when I went there on a rainy Saturday morning my expectations were exceeded. The breakfast was incredible.I had the eggs Benedict with a really delicious Chorizo sausage and homemade salsa. This is my new favorite place for breakfast. It is worth the extra... More

We just had a wonderful lunch at The Lake Grill in Whitby to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant isn't overly large so reservations are recommended for sure. It can fill up quickly. Our appetizers of crab cakes came with a lovely salad and salsa which was excellent. The calamari was the best I've ever had. The rings were small, tender... More

I had the privilege and the pleasure to once again experience the Lake Grill. With a group of friends we were able to enjoy food cooked to perfection. Each plate was a work of art. I started with the grilled scallops and pancetta. A pleasure for the eyes and perfectly cooked. I then was able to enjoy the veal chop.... More

This quaint little restaurant is located on the main floor of an old house. It has an open kitchen, wonderful atmosphere, and the food is amazing! My wife and I have eaten at the Lake Grill on several occasions, and we have yet to find any part of our meals that we didn't thoroughly enjoy! This is a must for... More

We returned to the Lake grill after a few years absence (not living in the area) and were generally pleased with our dining experience but it could have been so much better. Overall the food was very good. The four people in our party all chose different appetizers and mains. The appetizers were excellent, nicely presented and very generous portions.... More

We frequent Chef Jose, and it's always like going home. It's more than just the food...it's the service, and the staff. This is one little restaurant that won't disappoint.

We have eaten at The Lake Grill for several years now. It is one of our favourite restaurants. The staff, including Chef José and Norma are always friendly and come to the table personally to make sure we are pleased with our meal and service. This is a busy restaurant, so I recommend that you make a reservation, especially if... More
