I had always wanted to have a meal at the Lake House Restaurant. I saw the sign "Best Mediterranean Restaurant" and thought we would give it a try for my husband's birthday yesterday. I made reservations. We wanted to sit outside so we could have a view of Lake Ontario while we dined but they told us there was a... More

Thank you for your recent review and your feedback. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy the Veal Parmesan! If you had mentioned to the manager when they checked to see how your meal was that it was a bit dry, they would have done their best to correct it immediately. I am sorry that it wasn't as good...

I have been to the Lake House a few times over the past couple years, and found that it is always hit or miss. Since we hadn't been in awhile we decided to give it another try this past weekend. We had requested a table on the patio when we reserved and the girl on the phone told us they... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that your experience at Lake House was not what it should have been.

Nice place for lunch and conversation. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was interesting and well presented. My group had salads which they enjoyed very much. I had a hamburger which was tasty.. Was turned off by the coffee which was very strong. We all agreed that the coffee took away from what had been really nice food. Not... More

This was by far the best meal I had on my entire vacation, even after visiting the falls. Be sure to ask for the specials, that's what I ordered and it was incredible! The location, view and atmosphere were amazing - whether you choose to stay inside or out! Prices were very reasonable. I would totally recommend lunch or dinner... More

Met friends for a very pleasant lunch looking out onto Lake Ontario and the Toronto Skyline. The food was extremely good from the fish tacos (Perch filets), Prime Rib sandwich to the pizza special (1/2 thin crust pizza with salad). Service was fast and efficient, food hot and delicious and the view of the lake refreshing. We spent a leisurely... More

I admit the food is good not great but good and presented very well, in fact too elegantly for what this little place is. It is always pleasantly staffed but it seems they are trying to make this place a high end eatery which it is not, but perhaps for this area it fools most. When you are there on... More
