The Lakehouse

  Located at 3100 North Service Rd. Vineland, ON, this beautiful restored home is considered a Niagara Landmark.

  It's location creates and atmosphere to enjoy, with lake side views and decor to match. The patio which sit just metres from the lake offers breath taking views.

  Not knowing much about this restaurant I did some research before beginning my service-test, and what I have found was nothing but compliments. The Lakehouse underwent serious renovations several years ago on a little show called, Restaurant Makeover. Knowing the economy was faltering the owners decided to revamp the place, creating an at home feeling for their clientele.

  Last week I decided it was time to give the Lakehouse an opportunity to see what all the raves were about. When you first walk in you notice the beauty of the place right away, with its at home charm and spectaculars views you gasp for a minute in the beauty.

 Upon seating us our hostess let my date and I know of the daily features, and introduced our server to us.The service was incredible, to say the least. We were suggested items off the menu which included their baked brie appetizer, and the gnocchi pasta. These items are must haves. Lucky enough for the evening we were seated in a prime location right by the windows of the restaurant and could see the skyline of Toronto.

  When we were finished eating our main dishes the manager on duty came over to ensure our evening was going well. In the industry most manager only come table side when there is an issue, the Lakehouse instead asks about your meal instead of waiting for a complaint from a valued guest. I had nothing but praise for the service received and the quality of the food produced.

The Lakehouse is a place where I intend to visit as often as possible. The Lakehouse will receive a:
