Description: Il Laghetto is set against beautiful Lake Mahopac, a hidden gem that Mahopacian's hold close to their hearts. The lake is for many the reason why they are here and why they stay. The location is a definite attraction that most flock to in warmer months. Il Laghetto's name is Italian for "little lake". Set on the water, il Laghetto's location makes it ideal for a Seafood focused menu. A Raw Bar with Oyster offerings, Clams, Lobster, Crab and more is open year round. The menu itself is highly focused on fish but don't deny the 16oz Steak Au Poivre. "Specials" are offered weekends and will focus on other meat options as well. Il Laghetto is open all year and we encourage people to see the lake for it's beauty through all seasons

The Terrace Club not only offers a great delicious menu but the views and atmosphere is great as well!
The inside is trendy and outdoors is water club feel. The bartender ( which was a women) inside was great and extremely attentive!

The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and took very good care of us! Would recommend an go back anytime!

its one of ONLY 2 commercial eateries directly on Lake Maohpac.
the view is divine, as well as the truffle oil popcorn they serve as opposed to bread.
the menu is varied and creative.
pricey, but location is worth every penny.
service a little slow, but, also worth it for the location.

one of my favorite spots to unwind...
the sunset over lake mahopac is glorious.

It seems Amy remodeled The Terrace Club just to put it on the market. The new owners, Victor and Julian, both own Italian restaurants, one in Orange County (Limoncello) and the other a trattoria in Westchester. They plan to introduce new dishes, Italian and Continental, and keep some of the menu favorites. The current menu is fairly limited. Some of the old wait staff is still with them, maintaining continuity. We'll see what they do!

We have been there on several occasions in the past 2 years, including mothers day, and have never had a bad experience, so we went there to celebrate mothers day with family, had dinner reservations for 6 pm for table of 4 got there at 6 pm and still had to wait 15 minutes for a table to be prepared even though there were other tables available, and it just got worse from there. The music was so loud you felt that you were in a club and not a restaurant, I couldn't even here the waiter tell us what the specials were he had to repeat himself several times. The waiter told us what was available and not on the limited menu which seemed smaller than in the past. We started with calamari as we had had this in the past and was always great, well the order was about half the size as before, very disappointing. My kids both ordered burgers and fries, both ordered medium, when the order came there were no fries, but home made mashed potatoes, we asked they said they were out of fries,, confusing since they had home made mashed potatoes, i don't know maybe the could of said something before bringing the plates out. I don't know how a place runs out of french fries when they have potatoes on hand, my sons burger was rare not medium, it was sent back and what came back wasn't edible so all he ate was the mashed potatoes which he said were very good. I ordered a steak medium rare,at about $30.00 what i got was a strip steak well done, and they didn't even give me a steak knife and it was tuff and no flavor, not worth the price. Over all it was a very dissatisfying experience and not worth the price or the time. I understand on days like mothers day can be hectic but they should be prepared for that, it just seems that the place has had a turn for the worse it used to be a hidden gem. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for, but here unfortunately you are not getting what you pay for. My advice is to go else where for dinner as this place has gone down the tubes.
