Stunning View and Good Food

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Narrows restaurant. As it was off season there were limited diners and we were able to enjoy a table next to the windows overlooking the lake. The staff were attentive, and the food was very good.

My spouse had a veal Porterhouse steak with trout chowder as a starter. She reports both were excellent, the chowder exceptional. I had broiled scallops with a mushroom/white bean cream sauce and I've not had better. This entrée was preceded by a lovely fresh mixed-green salad with a delicious house dressing. My wife had peach sorbet for dessert and I... More

This menu is fun for anyone who is a foodie. An interesting array of food is offered in an unusual number of arrangements. For example, we enjoyed smoked elk carpaccio and also venison sausage. One bit of additional advice….I would definitely recommend ordering the "special of the day," as it is the place where this creative's chef talent definitely shines.

Sitting by the window offers spectacular views. The food was good, not great. The help was efficient. The setting makes this place worth returning to.

Everything on the menu is very expensive, it was so noisy as to be annoying, the air conditioning was so cold we left!

Whenever, we are in McCall, we try to make a point to dine here. Ambience: elegant, w/great views (especially at a window table) of the lake & mountains --- great in any season. Food: chef has won a number of awards, deservedly so. For the entrée, we shared the rib-eye steak w/the brandy peppercorn sauce, which was excellent. This was... More

I had my 70th birthday dinner with my extended family that numbered 14. We had our own room overlooking the lake. The service was superb, the food was exceptional with a good selection. My sister in law ordered a carrot cake for my birthday cake and it was wonderful. The prices are high but for a special occasion, it is... More

We eat here when we come out to McCall. It is expensive but well worth it. The scallop appitizer was so good, and my steak was perfect. Everyone with us enjoyed the meal. Our service was very good,. And, it is so nice looking out the windows at the lake. Perfect evening.
