Fantastic dining experience

We celebrated our daughter's graduation at Lake Park Bistro. The server was great, very helpful. Drinks and wine were wonderful. The escargot and the ribeye steak were outstanding! Loved our evening at Bartolotta's! Can't wait to go back! Yumm!

Delicious food, a nice mix of French and American cuisine. You won't leave hungry either, and that's always a plus.

I've dined at Lake Park Bistro literally dozens of times. You could read that one statement and stop reading this review and simply decide to go. Who would repeat like that if it wasn't great? There are certain restaurants that are not just a meal, but rather and experience. I've found them in places like Miami (Casa Tua) and San... More

My wife and I went there on a busy Friday evening and were seated at our reservation time. Our servers, Stephen and Omar were solicitous without being over bearing. What was so special was I was able to order something that was NOT on that night's menu. I asked if they'd be able to fix calves liver even though it's... More

We enjoyed a brunch here, but weren't as wowed as we hoped to be, given it was a special occasion. Food was good, but menu was kind of odd. Not as many breakfast type choices as I would have expected. Service was very good but became intrusive. Could barely finish a thought before another server came to ask us if... More

Dined there Saturday evening with wife, daughter and SIL to be to celebrate the ladies birthdays. We made reservations and asked for a table to view the lake - unfortunately it was very foggy and you could barely see the tree line. Regarding ambiance, to me it felt as I would imagine eating at a fine restaurant in the french... More

LPB is situated in a beautiful location, but make sure you get there early in order to obtain a parking spot. They are located in a park, so there is no valet service because the parking lot is shared, or you can choose to parallel park along the road and walk to the restaurant. The dining room has a cozy...

The food was absolutely amazing. It is a bit pricy but it's well worth it. The setting on the lake and the atmosphere inside is unmatched. Service was top notch as well. The only complaint I had was that it was little louder than I would have liked. We needed to raise our voice at times to hear each other.

Reserve on "the porch" and enjoy the lake view over brunch. Choose from champagne, mimosa, or orange juice, first, second, and dessert courses for a fixed price -plus croissants and excellent service! Lake Park Bistro is always my first pick for brunch with girlfriends and toasting good news. I've also hosted two wedding shower brunches and attended a large post-wedding... More

The chef is a James Beard award winner , so you know your in for a gastronomic treat. It is in what looks like an old country club with beautifully grounds and sprawling steps you would see in an old hollywood film. The food uses local ingredients including the locally made butter for your rolls. The menu changes but my... More
