We chose the baker house because unlike most Lake Geneva restaurants it was not ridiculously overpriced. It is a tapas style restaurant which neither my husband or I had ever experienced. Tapas is appetizer portions meant to be shared. It sounded fun and different so we booked a reservation.
The restaurant is an old summer home built in the late 1800s. It is pretty much a mansion converted into a restaurant. It was very cool! We ate in the library but there are lots of rooms and also dining outside with a view of Geneva Lake. The waitresses and waiters are all dressed in 1800s fashion and encourage the patrons to barrow and wear a hat for the evening which we did.
Our server was Lola and she was really sweet and nice. She was very helpful about explaining the eating style of the restaurant and our meals was not rushed one bit. We were there for 2 hours! Which for a romantic restaurant I do not want to be rushed.
We started our meal with the cheese fondue which came with apples and bread and also the seafood parfait. If you love seafood OMG you have to order it! It is a blend of shrimp, crab and lobster with "green goddess" which I believe is cream cheese and chives and other spices. Was amazing!!! And very pretty. The cheese fondue was swiss which is not a favorite of mine but my husband enjoyed it.
For our "dinner" we ordered the beef kabobs and beef tenderloin sliders. The sliders were SO good the beef was tender and flavorful and had grilled onions. The beef kabobs had grilled squash on them and were also tasty. We also ordered the pretzel bites with 3 mustards, yummy also!
Dessert was chocolate fondue with pretzels, pineapple, strawberries, graham crackers and marshmallows. We mad 'smores! We got the dark and milk chocolates and it was divine!
The atmosphere of this place is so lovely and romantic it was unlike any restaurant we'd ever dined in! You must go here for anniversary celebrations or just for sweet quiet night together!
