Lakeview Restaurant is on the lake in Coventry Conn. They offer Italian, Seafood, Steak, Pizza, Sandwiches & Burgers. They have an outdoor deck overlooking the lake. They have a large bar, and big screen TV.
When we first arrived we were happy to be reunited with our favorite waiter, Joey from Coventry Pizza, who we had not seen in 3 years. We sat in a booth overlooking the lake.
I got the Rib Eye Steak Sandwich topped with a delicious combination of sauteed onions, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese. The Steak Fries were the way I like them; hot and crispy golden brown.
Liz got the Chicken Broccoli Alfredo served over Linguini. I sampled some, both the chicken and white sauce were very tasty. The portion was very generous, we took half of it home.
Joey, our server, was very attentive & friendly. Leo, the manager, thanked us as we were leaving and was very friendly with us. Next time we try an appetizer; Chicken Wings, Fried Calamari, Stuffed Mushrooms, Sweet Potato Fries, Shrimp, Smelts in a Basket. Then split an Antipasto Salad, or Baked Lasagna.
LakeView Restaurant, review #2 We went back again to dine at the
LakeView. They had a "Fresh Whole Belly Clams" sign out in front. Of
course that's what I ordered and I am happy to report that LakeView's
clams are among the best I've ever tasted, and I've been eating clams for 50+ years.
Leo, the manager, remembered us from the last time we were there. He stopped by my table to chit-chat but it was clear he was very busy with customers. The gigantic bar area was filled with a big private party (30+ people) having lots of fun along with their dinners.
NICE PLACE TO GO WITH YOUR FAMILY – This place has changed 100%. There food is great i had baked sea scallops THE BEST and my husband got veal parmigiana the veal was so tender and the sauce so good.We did seat inside because was raining and inside was as beautiful as outside on the deck.
Never experienced such rudeness – The only thing the Lakeview has going for it is it's location on a lake. Otherwise.... We had a veal dinner that was tough. My friend ate it because we were starving, but decided he would be nice and let the owner know that maybe there was more tough veal in the kitchen. We were not looking for any money back since we did eat it. Just trying to be nice. The owner's very arrogant responses, among other things, were 1) "Well, we've never had any complaints about the veal before", and, believe it or not, he said, 2) "Just order something else next time". Right then and there we decided there wasn't going to be a next time. So a few weeks later we go there, not to have dinner, but to listen to a band and have a couple drinks. Apparently the owner must have recognized us and decided he didn't need our business. He took our drink order and basically threw my change at me. Then we sat there ignored while trying to order another drink. My friend waved over one of the bartenders, who proceeded to scowl at us and said very, very rudely, "I have no idea what you had!". Um, ask?? So we tried to order from one last bartender, who very politely took our order and proceeded to magically forget to bring us our drinks (we believe she was instructed to "forget"). It was time to go, and never go back. I've never in my life experienced such rudeness. This owner clearly does not know the meaning of customer service and we will be telling everyone we know who goes there to not go back. Oh, and by the way, the food is very mediocre.
