“anniversary dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Chose this upscale restaurant as our 25th anniversary meal due to it's proximity to our Inn (Lakehouse Inn and winery) and it's view and ambiance. There were only a few diners in the dining room that evening which made for a romantic setting, UNTIL the hostess sat a loud and rambunctious table of 8 right along side of us...mind you, there were at least 20 other empty tables.....3 children were permitted to run amock all over the dining room by there parents AND the manager and staff that evening....Very disruptive not only to us but the other few diners trying to enjoy a high priced meal. Our food was delicious and our server was wonderful, so i am giving a good review for that in itself. The staff and MANAGER, should really be more considerate to their customers who obviously are there for the peacefulness of their beautiful establishment and place a rowdy group such as that, away from other diners! I noticed the manager pitched in and helped the servers, and also made rounds to most of the tables that evening, however, missed stopping by to out table, or i would have kindly told him how disappointed we were in having our romantic meal ruined by the un-necessary commotion right smack up against us. The kids, aged 8 and under continuously in and out of their seats, ramming their chairs into the back of my husband repeatedly! We our not old, grumpy, child haters either, we are easy-going 40+ yr olds who love and have "well mannered" grown kids of our own. Just appreciate a nice, relaxing meal that we've spent $70 on....could not exit quick enough after our meal consumed and hurriedly left for dessert at another location....

“I wish I could rate it higher”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

It has great potential. Good food....beautiful location and view but the service is not even close to what it should be. We were there on a slow night and ot took forever to get drinks and refills and our meal. It wasn't that the waitress wasn't nice.....since it wasn't busy I was wondering where she was......It's a real shame. This place has so much potential. I think some retraining is essential. I will try it again...i hope it will be better.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

My wife and I had a wonderful meal with our friends. The food was good, but the service was even better - from the hostess to the server. All were friendly without being obnoxious. We were seated promptly, the server quickly came and introduced herself, and the food came out nicely timed. The manager Kim even stopped by and was very gracious and attentive - not the usual "how's everything" when they don't care. Kim seemed genuinely interested in what we thought. The room was about half full with several groups seated right before us. We will certainly be back again. Thanks!

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Met a colleague for dinner. The restaurant is beautiful. The house wine and wine glasses are my favorite. The service was great. However, something is missing from the menu. Neither of us could decide on what to order. They are trying to be a ***** but this isn't what their customers want to eat. With the view that is offered, this dining room should be packed but of course it isn't. What about some regular items with baked potatoes and a regular salad. The prices are way too high.
