A beautiful setting, especially if there is a magnificent lightning show reflected on the lake. The food was basically Italian, and well presented. We were disappointed to find the exceptionally high price of drinks. We usually get wine, and will do so in the future....More

Terrific first-time experience at Montage Italian Grill. The eggplant parmesan was the best I'd ever had and my husband raved about his steak. The meal was well-paced and the view unrivaled. Our server had only been employed by the restaurant for "three hours," as she...More

Food was good, and the portions were large. Service was fine, and view of the lake is awesome. It does look very outdated overall though, by at least 25-30 years. There was also a strange smell when I walked in (reminded me of my grand...More

View was nice and the service was great. Menu was ho hum. I tried the steak and peppers, not bad but bland and overcooked. Like boiled meat.
