The food is lovely but perhaps a little on the high side. The wine, and there is a very extensive wine list, is even more on the high side. The Eggs Benny Hollandaise is among the best I have tried. The Salmon with Lemon risotto is fantastic.

Appetizers are large. Try the La Posta Tinto for a value wine. You must make reservations, but it wasn't too busy when we were there.

We had a good dinner here, and the service was also good. We ate on the indoor "porch" area with a nice view of Emerald Lake. The outside of the lodge is very attractive with beautiful hanging baskets of flowers.

We stopped here for a late lunch. While the server was very friendly and talkative, he actually talked a little bit too much. A small glass of a soft drink was $3.50 or $3.99 which was a bit much. The food was okay. The chicken in my sandwich was very dry, my husband liked the fish and chips, and the kids chicken fingers were mostly batter. I wouldn't eat here again.

We were staying at the Emerald Lake Lodge so found ourselves in their restaurant on the first night. What a mistake

The food was second rate which would have been ok if the service was excellent - but it was abysmal. We were seated in the lounge and we may have well been seated on Mars ... It took over 25 minutes for the pre meal drinks to arrive, 45 minutes for the Entrees to arrive (and we were not ordering anything abnormal). I raised the service with staff and this just made things worse ...

Spent the rest of the holiday eating out
