So where to begin!? First off the food was all phenomenal. We weren't to lakeside to celebrate with family before leaving town. The restaurant is also the lobby for the hotel. Weird. Nonetheless it still is very nice. If you're familiar with the grand bohemian- it's a part of that collection of hotels along with a Marriott. Very nice. Well dinner started off being extremely hot, Florida as is in these months is almost inbrearable but the in and out I assume contributed to the heat in this restaurant. We nicely asked the server as we were sweating. Manager Ernie came and was very kind. Shortly after offered to show us their private room which the temperate was a lot cooler. We moved which made our entree experience much better. Apparently just having an off day, they brought champagne and Chandon as a complementary addition. There was a little fly in my sisters cup, but quickly replaced it. The service really was great. Food was a little slow to come i assuming maybe a little short staffed but with drinks and good company it was fine. I commend Earnie for his kindness and help in making the situation right. The food was wonderful. Had shrimp and spaghetti squash was really good. Also had creme brulee cheesecake and key lime pie, all very delish to end the meal. The pork chop my fiancé had and also was tasty - loved his side of mushrooms-onions-bacon! Oh man was that good.

We visited this place as a dinner stop during a long drive on a weekday evening, and were not very impressed. Our food (a salad and sandwich) took very long to arrive although there couldn't have been more than 8 tables to serve. It took far to long just to get our bill and leave as well. For the price and quality, it's just not worth any additional visits.

We were staying here for the first time. Passing through while traveling home. Went down for dinner and so glad we did. Staff was very nice and the food was amazing. Everything tasted wonderful and was the best meal of our trip.

My wife and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary at Celebration. We ate dinner at the Lakeside Bar and grill. Don't let the name throw you. It was some of the best food we have ever eaten. I had the Grilled Skirt Steak and it was amazing. Wonderful flavor. Highly recommend it. My wife had the red snapper that was equally as good. Live jazz music played during our dining experience. The staff was wonderful and gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. Great place to celebrate.

It was great to have such a nice restaurant in the hotel where we were staying. The wait staff was exceptional attentive and pleasant. My husband and I had 2 breakfasts and a dinner here and were not disappointed. Clauceny waited on us for those breakfasts. She was so friendly and attentive! Special requests were communicated to the prep staff and food arrived promptly and properly presented. Orders were accurate. Loved the avocado toast with poached eggs and the eggs benedict. Egg sandwich was huge and tasty. There were 7 people for dinner and again staff were knowledgeable and so pleasant. No request was too much trouble. Orders were correct and very tasty. Even with the other restaurants within walking distance I would recommend having at least breakfast here before heading out for the day.

Have been here many times and it's always a pleasure. The food and service is always above and beyond the prices charged and the lakeside open air tiki type setting is nearly perfect. Cigarette smokers are the only annoyance.

Food was very good so was the service.

While it is priced like a destination buffet, it isn’t. $22.00 for this weekend breakfast buffet is steep for what you get. In fact, if management axed the omelette/crepe station, got rid of the gross salmon bagels and weird “crostini”, used clear/smaller dishes for the fruit salad, smaller cups for the yogurt parfait + actually made a layered parfait rather than globbing a spoonful of yogurt in a cup and sprinkling a teaspoon of granola and a couple of blueberries on top, keep the pastry and hot items, and drop the price to $15-$16, the whole thing would be exactly right for the right price. OR, improve the quality of the food and the service so that people will happily hand over $22.

Excellent place to have breakfast. Decent wait staff. Quality food. Quiet and tranquil atmosphere to enjoy a meal without tourists ruining it for you. Prices are what would be expected from a top notch organization.

This was my first time there. Everything was exquisite! The service was perfect. The scenery was amazing. I am definitely coming back again. If you haven't been you must go at least once.

A fun place with good food and music that doesn't drown out conversation. Wait staff is attentive and get's it right. Ernie the manager makes you feel welcomed and valued. Thanks for a great dinner.

Beautiful setting. We enjoyed the outdoor dining. My fiance and I are keto and they were very accommodating. Our meal was delicious.

Servers were friendly and attentive but time to fire the orders was absolutely glacial. Small portions of dead greens that make me wish I had gone to the local Applebee's. Entrees were of good quality.

Eric Lemon

Excellent restaurant! Beautiful decor and solid staff. Nice locationn in Celebration right on the water. We sat outside in the nice weather.

Jon Thomas

Highly anticipated and surely disappointed! A dinner reservation for 7pm and we were seated at 8pm; however we were told an outside table was available at 7pm in the lovely 50 degree evening air. A few interesting drinks at the bar helped pass the time until we were sat at there indoor “restaurant tables”; the room also doubles for their hotel reception, lobby and bar which the 30 walk-in folks took full advantage of a hotel lobby / bar atmosphere.

After 2days in Disney we wanted to relax, so we booked a table at Bohemian. The service and the food is nice, the scenery is beautiful. Its worth to take a walk after meal by the lake.

This place is out-of-the-world! The food is wonderful, the service is superb, and the ambience will soothe your soul.Dinner in the lobby is luscious, but the ultimate treat is breakfast out by the lake. If you want to satisfy you physical hunger, as well as your spiritual and emotional hunger, this IS the place to be!You do NOT want to miss this superb dining experience!

The service level is excellent but the food quality needs improvement. After trying most of the other restaurants in town there are better choices within walking distance. The main dining area indoors is right in the main entrance area which can be disturbing while dining having hotel guests walking through. The main reception desk also shares the same area as the restaurant. The outdoor patio is a little more private but shares the entrance to the pool deck.

Excellent Sunday morning buffet, omelet chef, Starbucks coffee, fresh-squeezed orange juice— don’t miss it! Seating is in the middle of hotel lobby, which feels a little weird at first, but people-watching can be fun and the buffet itself is delicious.

LeBonq; We are glad you enjoyed the experience! Come back soon, we are continuing to make improvements to the buffet that I think you will really enjoy.

A little too much noise, service and food is great.

Our waiter Dillon was great and the food was delicious!

The place has nice ambiance, but the food was very average at best and it was definitely overpriced. I order the pork chop medium and it was over cooked, I am a Keto dieter and asked for no carb and ask for vegetable replacement instead of the risotto and got the asparagus, the asparagus was very underwhelming. The meal was also very much overprice. One pork chop was $30 with a glass of wine $13 add tax and gratuity and it came out to be 60 dollars, ridiculous for the quality and flavor of the meal. I can only give it 1 star

Dont understand the hype about it.. may be the hotel is better than the restaurant.. wine selection is mediocre and food was ok.

Aidan

Decent food, a good selection of drinks, pleasant staff, quiet in the early evening, interesting people a little later, hotel hands out food vouchers in exchange for not having room serviced every day. What's not to like?

We ordered Jade Jarden and October Festival Apple Harvest for drinks, both are really good. For food we got Calamari, Seafood Chowder, Pork Chop with Risotto, all of the dishes are delicious except for the sauce on the calamari. It's just not suited for my palate, might be good for someone else.

Hal Beattie

We went there on the Orlando magical dining program. I could not have been more impressed with the food and the service. I had the calamari appetizer, a delicious Mediterranean salmon and an apple gallate for desert. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Our server's name was Austin, and he was top notch.

Dave Peters

Hotel restaurants are not usually this good, but the Lakeside offers great food and a fair choice of beer and wine. The service was excellent and the burgers are AWESOME!

Tried this restaurant for the first time as part of the Orlando Magical Dining promotion. Sadly we won't be returning. We sat outside on a hot, humid day to escape the noise level inside. It wasn't overly busy, but the live music was far too loud for the room. A shame, because the gentleman playing was very good. Service was inattentive and brusque. The food was average with the highlight being the desserts. When the check came I found that an automatic 20% gratuity was added. While I generally tip 20% as a minimum it was irritating that there was no advance notice of this policy. And frankly the service was worth 15% at most.

Great dinner. Had pork chop amazing, family had Halibut amazing. Good restaurant. Excelent service from Brian.

Danny and Lauren are exceptional bartenders. They have both been at this property for a while. They remember you after your first visit and often start your drink before you sit down! Great food at the bar too!

Customized service at its best every time! This was my fourth time visiting Lakeside bar & grill and it did not disappoint. I had a client that I needed to bring out to lunch and she had very specific dietary needs. After my first experience there, I knew it was the place to go. I asked to speak to the Chef and Chef Bryan came out to the table. She explained that she had both a nut and tree nut allergy. Without hesitation, he said "no problem, I'll take care of you" and did he ever! He inquired what she likes to eat and left for the kitchen and came back with an amazing salmon dish! My client was amazed! And it looked so good that I might actually request the dish the next time I'm in. Thanks Chef Bryan!

Neat location and ambiance for this place, outside seating with a nature view is available as well an indoor bar with lobby style dinning area. Food was good, made with high quality ingredients. The wait staff were really engaging and helpful. There is also live music (Saturday night) playing jazz and 70's classics. Had an unexpected great time, which is always the best.

Excellent restaurant had both breakfast (omelet) and dinner here! Burger was awesome! I really wanted to give this place 5 stars, however I think there should be a bit more attention to maintaining clean tables & chairs after patrons are finished eating. Each table I sat at (both indoors & out) had to be cleaned up after I was seated. Crumbs & food still on the tables and chairs after I was seated for my meal. Each time I bought it to the staffs attention, it was quickly handled in a kind manner. Other than that, I loved the restaurant and ate there at least 4 times during my stay. Wonderful service with extremely kind people serving your meals. Keep up the great work!

Lakeside Bar and Grill is a name that does not fit the ambience and elegance that this place delivers. This is fine dining in a very eclectic, and modern setting. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The service was also very good. I enjoyed the red snapper. It was prepared very well and it was abundant with flavor. When I think of a bar and grill I think of a place to get hamburgers and french fries. This is five star fine dining. If you are staying at the Bohemian Hotel, you must do one night of dining here.

Thanks for the great conversation! Xo
