We enjoyed Mother's Day brunch at the Lake Chalet. Our party enjoyed the waffles, crab cakes benedict, seafood Louie salad, steak & scrambled eggs, and other entrees, coffee, tea, orange juice and drinks. The food was good, but we enjoyed the family gathering in a beautiful setting. Took photos on the dock as a music group was getting prepared to perform and the gondolas rowed up.

The food is okay, but the views are what makes it indulging. My daughter had the lobster sausage which she loved. The look of it could have been more desireable, but she ate it all. My fish and chips, not so much. No seasoning and greasy. The fries were warm, but the drinks were good. Not a bad visit for a Sunday brunch. I’ve had better though.

My wife and I have been to the Lake Chalet 15-20 times for lunch of the last few years. We keep returning because the restaurant has a beautiful location on the shore of the lake, an attractive facility and very good food.

Only 2 small concerns - the restaurant tends to be noisy when full - the angled wood roof tends to reflect sound back at the diners and it can be difficult to hear conversations across the table. A bit of sound deadening would go a long way to improving the overall ambiance. Additionally, service is friendly - but very slow - there were times when our server disappeared for 15 minutes at a time - stretching an hour+ lunch into 90 minutes or more.

Concerns aside - we enjoy the restaurant and will continue to return for the view and well-prepared meals.

The weather was gorgeous and decided to have a drink at the chalet. They have redone the location and you can have a peaceful drink at the end of the deck, great view.
the bar inside has been redone and is excellent as well. Location location location

Four of us had a variety of dishes (seafood, steaks, pasta, burgers, soups, hearty salads), drinks and dessert. Everything was absolutely delicious. The water view was stunning. Parking was easy. Prices were fair for a nice restaurant in the Bay Area. I liked that there was a range of prices for different budgets. The service was definitely better than your average nice restaurant. I will come here again for sure!
