This restaurant-on the shores of Lake George-is fantastic, especially for a special occasion. We went there on Sunday, August 11th to celebrate my wife's birthday. A great choice. The weather was perfect, so we ate outside. The food was excellent-the menu is quite manageable with 5 or 6 entries and the same number of appetizers plus 4 or 5 salad choices. They use a team system for waitstaff, but our main server, Nick Macino really made for an enjoyable meal. We would strongly recommend this restaurant!

We booked this restaurant for my daughter's 16th birthday as a big treat for her. The restaurant itself is lovely, the porch overlooking the lake was stunning. It was a bit cold or we would have chosen to eat outside. We were seated right away although many people were waiting due to the reservation made in advance which I appreciated. Our order was taken promptly and all was going swimmingly through the appetizer. Then a delay in the kitchen caused our meal to be delayed by an hour. As we had a late reservation at 7:45 to begin with, we ended up eating very late. The noise level was loud to begin with due to the size of the dining room and the wonderful pianist. Then the wedding music started one floor below and it was very hard to hear. The maitre d did come to apologize and they did offer us dessert and coffee on the house which largely made up for it. The food was very good. My children had chicken parmesan and we had surf and turf. Everything was delicious. However, I wish my daughter had not had to wait until almost nine pm to eat dinner on her birthday...The staff were wonderful, they made a big fuss over her, wrote happy birthday in chocolate on her plate and had the pianist play for her. She was very happy and overall, it was a lovely evening.

We had dinner here on July 4th and dined at an outside table so that we could see the fireworks. Although we had made our reservations 5 weeks in advance, we had to wait about 1 hour for our table. We would have been annoyed, but the host explained that they had a power failure that day and 2 of their restaurants were not able to open, so they had to try and accommodate the overflow. Once seated, we did get a perfect table outside with a fantastic view of the fireworks. The food was excellent and the service staff was very attentive and good. It was worth the wait. The view of Lake George is lovely, but you must get an outside table as inside you can't see too much. Great spot. If you are in this area, have dinner here.
