One of the best meatballs I’ve had in years!! Clams casino was great too!
We had made a reservation in advance. When we got there we were told to sit anywhere we wanted on our own. No table was reserved for us. No service given Not good.
We felt very safe eating outdoors at the Lakeview. Tables were spaced at least 6 feet apart. The cod sandwich was super fresh and delicious. Service was good and food came quickly. The view of the lake is so lovely.
Great food and service in a beautiful setting
Good, scenic outdoor dining option during the pandemic.
Lakeview has a ‘Seat Yourself’ policy so I’m not sure why they are allowing customers to make reservations! No one asked if we had a reservation!
We always love going to Lakeview Restaurant. The view is beautiful sitting on the huge patio near the lake and the food is delicious. The service is excellent and the social distanced tables and masked servers make us feel safe . Many nights there is live entertainment which makes for an enjoyable evening .
We always enjoy coming here in the summer months. The view is beautiful. This year especially, it is appreciated with dining outdoors. Good service and delicious food.
Food was amazing. Service was great! Love the outdoor patio.
Lovely view of a clean lake. Good distance between tables. Good wait staff.
Restaurant is a bit pricey. Food was good, sat on patio.
Delicious food in a pretty location. Close to UCONN campus. We would eat here again, and recommend if in the area to check it out.
Somewhat pricey, Quality of food and portions excellent. seemed to be some confusion as to who was going to be our waitress. We had a delightful young lady named Olivia. Very pleasant and personable.. Enjoyed our meals and the show, lovely location. Kudos to the Owner, He bussed tables, delivered food and help the staff clean up throughout the evening..Very impressed...Will return soon.
Nicely done even with all the COVID19 regulations!
Excellent food and great outdoor dining with a view.
The food was very good but the prices are quite expensive for the choices.
My date and I had a great dinner at the Lakeview Restaurant. The view was beautiful, the restaurant was clean, and the service was excellent! We will definitely be back!
Good view, service, food was excellent. They are very Covid aware and take good precautions for their customers.
Felt very comfortable going there. A nice ride to get there. Would go back, and recommend to friends.
Ordered lazy lobster. For $50 got a few chunks of lobster meat, 3 scallops and 4 large shrimp. Way over priced for amount of seafood in dish. Lobster ravioli was good. Waitress was mediocre. Might be a better place for apps and drinks on the deck.
The only issue was that the server was young and in-experienced, no knowledge of the menu, didn’t ask if we wanted coffee, dessert or another drink, brought the check and we didn’t ask for it.
Always a good time. Right on the lake and plenty of socially distant outdoor seating.
Lovely wide terrace overlooking a small lake. Perfect for al fresco. Very Italian menu with a broad selection. My acid test for any restaurant is how well they prepare their crab cakes. These were sublime, light and airy, perfectly composed. Then they served our Aranchini! I won't tell you how wonderful it was, you have to experience it yourself!
Service was deft and quick. Wine list is a little limited, but the selections were appropriate for the cuisine.
This is a BIG place and likely to be crowded and noisy inside. Not so on the terrace, so find a beautiful day for lunch.
Good spot to watch the water, boaters, and ducks. Or food was good, although the rosemary chicken was very tasty, it was thighs and a leg, I would have preferred breasts especially for $28.00. Service was great.
Food good but pricey, drinks small and expensive, great ambiance with the lake and sunset
The antipasto board and calamari were excellent! The service was outstanding!
Unfortunately the food did not rate high for me, it really feel under average food. I have pasta and vegtables done in olive oil - it was very bland despite my request to add seasoning. I also asked to have the peppers replaced (as I can't eat peppers with sauteed onions. The onions were not sauteed, just cut up and thrown in. It is really too bad as I love the environment and being able to sit outside to view the lake.
Portions small, no salad, no offer of more bread. Slow getting our food but it was a beautiful night next to the lake and there was live music. Over all a good experience and will go again.
You pay for the view at Lakeside- food was definitely overpriced, reasonable but not stellar. Service was outstanding. My husband and I enjoy eating out once a week- and we both agreed we paid $110 for a meal that should have been $65.
Great view. Wish there were more tables in the shade.
We had a great time seated on the patio. The only mistake that we did was to sit under the tent. It was 6pm and the sun was beating down and the umbrella on our table was no help 😩 Otherwise, it was a great time
Would go back for fish and chips. Fries and drinks were good...some other items would not order again. Outside by the lake was nice.
There’s nothing not to love about The Lakeview! The owners, Leo & Marianna, the view, & food are fantastic! As “someone “ stated to me “it’s a little pricey but so worth it”. Couldn’t agree more.
Awesome place. Bet its a blast when there is no covid
Great wait staff and food very good.
Excellent patio dining experience. The seafood platter was both enormous and delicious! Would definitely recommend to a friend.
We love the Lakeview Restaurant. Not only is the atmosphere great with the lake and boaters, but the food was delicious and the service was top notch. Can't wait to go back again.
Great services and food
It was fantastic experience and the food was delicious!!
The atmosphere of outdoor dining by Coventry Lake is a big reason why my husband and I chose to dine here. The service was good. Our appetizer and entrees came out quickly. The view was beautiful by the water. There was live music playing. The only thing I will mention (to echo what other reviews said) was that the food prices seem high for what you get. Having said that, the seafood entree that I ordered was very good. Just be aware of the increased prices (they seem much higher than when we used to come here), but I would go here again for a nice night out.
Good on the higher side of OK. But you go for the view. Live Music was a nice surprise!
