This is the new version of the restaurant that we enjoyed so much many years ago. Now they literally squeezed it in a walkway / hallway. The food and service were good to very good but the location and ambiance just suck. Like the hotel...they MAKE it LOOK nice until you sit down then you realize you’ve been had. People literally walk by you constantly like in a busy hallway from place to place Loud and unbecoming… in this setting they attempt to serve you a tasting menu with wine parings for mega $$ Note to the owners: BAD LOCATION MOVE THE RESTAURANT I feel so cheatedMore

We went there for the breakfast buffet. The selection was pretty standard, but each item was delicious! The service was also outstanding. We were really pleased with this meal

Extremely slow service, 4 hours for 4 course meal, we were 7 adults, all main plates were served lukewarm and a few cold fish plates, food of poor quality, management is non responsive when you let them know, definitely not worth it.

Service was great. I ordered the halibut which was big enough. My husband ordered the duck “breast” which unfortunately came with 3 tiny pieces of duck, a smear of potatoes and a few vegetables. Although tasty, it was not enough for a main for the...price he paid. The desserts (we ordered 2) were terrific. I am pregnant and most of the menu I couldn’t eat. I would go back for the dessert but the portions were disappointing. My husband debated about ordering more food at the neighbouring restaurant.More

Perhaps because it is the holiday season, but the restaurant was understaffed. Long waits between courses such that my entree was lukewarm on arrival. A pity since the tastes were quite good. Some issues in the kitchen- tuna tataki very salty and salade very bland.....I was expecting Wow but only got Meh.. Wines however are exceptional.as were desserts.More

We reserved a table while staying at the resort. Staff is very polite and well informed of their menu. The waitress recommended to my wife the gnocchi plate and she loved it! I had the delicious fish dish. They offer free fresh bread which is...homemade and delicious! I definitely recommend this restaurant!More

Started at 8 finished at 12:13am.We were a group of 5 women and took a 5 course so we knew it would be long but we expect to be served our course at the same time not have to get up and hunt down our...waiter or any staff member for our food because they forgot.Each course was a battle to get our food right and at the same time.As soon as we talk to the manger it was corrected he seem generally sorry.Service impoved but that was at coffee time.Food was very good except the main i had the scallops but my friends had the other. We all sampled eachothers and everything was very very good except the scallop which were very hard.Didnt exchange them couldn’t find wait staff.The foie gras and tuna entree was spot on.Would I go back that is a hard no.More

Cannot go wrong when you combine a stunning view over the lake with great service and food...plus I get to practice my not so good Français at the same time.
