Delicious dinner would definitely come back, staff went the extra mile for my wifes birthday dessert. 5 stars
My wife and I celebrated our 38th wedding aniversary this evening the dining was an awesome experience. The food was cooked and presented to perfection. The staff were attentive, and had a pleasant disposition. The two ladies running the show are a credit to their profession. We highly recommend this venue to all who enjoy fine dinning and a great experience. Peter & Aroha
Fabulous meal, excellent view and the staff were top notch
Everything was perfect
Pleasant dining experience. Couldn’t fault the service everyone was very friendly and professional. Good variety of meals offered on the menu and what we ordered was good, the highlight was the chocolate dessert.
Service was way below what I would’ve expected from the Bistro Lago. I hate complaining about customer service as I understand it’s a testing job. But my friends, family and I were extremely disappointed with the lack of service we received. It felt as if the wait staff were actively avoiding us. Firstly, we asked for some water which took forever to get here. Then when one of us tried to speak to the waiter he literally turned his back and pretended he didn’t see. I was embarrassed to have taken my family to a restaurant that had such poorly trained staff. Why work in hospitality if you don’t enjoy customer service? However, greatest compliments to the chef - the food was superb.
An absolute stunning meal and wonderful service from Mason! Thank you we will be back
Great location. Helpful friendly staff. They were happy to adjust the dishes to accommodate my food allergy. Calamari entree was excellent and crispy as it should be. Duck was tender. Nice place. Would return.

Great food! Love the scallop. Really tasty. Kudos to the guy who assisted us to our seats. He placed us in a beautiful spot to have the best view of the lake. However found the service a lilttle bit slow. The last entree took a while
