The food was delicious but..... We had a reservation and still waited 20+ minutes to be seated. We were left waterless and waiting for someone to take our order for another 10 minutes. When I ordered an app I had also ordered a caesar, which I had to ask for again long after my app was devoured. Lastly, I found... More

Friends in Pickering have been raving about the Lake Grill for years and last night I finally got to experience what they're talking about when our group of 10 got together for the occasion of my birthday. The menu has so many delicious choices that it was very difficult to choose what to order but I finally settled on the... More

This visit was my 4th or 5th to the restaurant and there will be other visits in my future. The food is incredible. When we visited for my husband's birthday, he said the vegetables were the best he had eaten anywhere. I had the Veal Piccata on my last visit. It almost melted in my mouth, so tender and delicious.... More

A great spot for lunch or dinner or weekend brunch in South Whitby. Fresh food and courteous service at all times. Intimate setting with about 40 seats, so reservations are recommended. A great spot to drop in before or after a walk along the waterfront. The food is especially good when Jose, the owner/chef is working.

Norma is so nice. We went there with my family for my husband's b-day. My granddaughter was getting a bit fussy but Norma brought her snacks before our meals arrive. Thankfully we arrived early, 10 min before they opened but they let us in & were very accommodating.
