We took advantage of a lovely summer evening to eat outside on the deck overlooking Lawrence Lake. It is a great setting complete with water birds. Our waiter was friendly, very professional and knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The bread offering is either a baguette or rosemary olive rolls. The rolls were delicious. Our appetizers of little... More

I eat out in NYC a lot ... the Lakehouse is as good as some of the best restaurants in NYC...if you like Danny Meyer's type cuisine you will love the LakeHouse. I particularly love the chicken but everything is great. And the view over the lake is lovely too.

In the past two weeks my husband and I have been to The Lake House twice to enjoy the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing, and both occasions were two of the best dinners I have ever enjoyed. The regular menu is great as well, however if there is any special occasion you are celebrating or just feel like a... More

I have been to this restaurant MANY times over the past few years and could not be more pleased with EVERYTHING about it. The location is beautiful, the service is excellent, and the food is delicious. The restaurant is always accommodating to allergies, which is a big plus as well. Try the winter vegetable salad, the duck and one of... More

This is a wonderful restaurant on LI, that can compete with any either on the Island or in NYC....best Mushroom Risotto I have ever had anywhere, and the same can be said of the Chicken entree. The restaurant is situated with a water view , and there is an outdoor fire pit and chairs for either pre or post dining.... More

A friend and I came in Saturday for an early evening dinner. We were seated right away by one of the tables facing the lake. The view was nice. We ordered the Braised Crispy Berkshire Pork Belly as an appetizer, it was great, not over cooked, not under cooked. Super tasty. As an entree, I ordered the Herb-Marinated Angus Skirt... More

We both enjoyed a very wonderful meal with great service at this local watering hole. Weather was not terrific, so I'm glad we decided (1) to go the night before V-day, (2) to go earlier than later and (3) to stay in the neighborhood. After all, we did have our post wedding party here almost 3 1/2 years ago. Still... More

The hostess seated us right away. The wait staff was on top of their game. The pairing on the dinner menu just wasn't appealing. You couldn't do your own mix and match with sides. Fish was undercooked. Desert was good. All in all just an average meal.
