A true five star dining experience in Lake George. Beautiful presentation, great service and a lovely view. Fois gras, scallops and pork belly all wonderful. Lamb, steak and pork chop all delicious. Reservations on Open Table are great. Would highly recommend. Figure about $100 per person before tip with alcohol.

It is a beautiful venue on the Lake in a magnificent castle like setting. The menu is relatively small, but everything we had was prepared perfectly. All four of us loved our meals, the side dishes were just amazing. My son had sea beans with his fish and we all tried them because they were new to us - wow... More

Chef presentation, taste and amount of servings were on point. Taste buds were well satisfied. We ate on the porch overlooking the lake. As the sun went down, it got a chill in the air. Within no time, wood was packed in the fire place and warmth was delivered.

Dining outside high above the most scenic lake in America, this is a special treat, both in ambience and budget - a not to miss. More known for "high end" dining, weddings and events, my recommendation is to pick a gorgeous blue sky early evening mid-week, request outdoor seating and enjoy the most glorious view and delicious, freshly prepared food...

Warm comfortable ambience in elegant dining room. The squash bisque was a revelation. Excellent locally sourced meats and vegetables - except the surprisingly generous potion of wagyu beef main course. There is talent in that kitchen!
