Nice venue for wedding, food was very good, very loud though because of large group and low ceilings.

We had a very nice diner at Lago. The place was very quiet and we were seated by the window. The view was pretty good. Our server was very friendly & kind. The salad, french fries, slow-cooked ribs and cheesecake were all very delicious. I especially suggest the slow cooked ribs for the main. Overall, highly recommended! More...

I've been here a couple times and the food is always delicious! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The view of Dow's Lake is gorgeous, particularly in the summer and adds to the ambience.

I went on an Ottawa Trip recently from the 12th to the 14th and we had had a dinner and dance hosted by Brightspark and Lago at Lago. The food is also very good. The views are also great. I recommend Lago for any special events you might need to host. More...

We went to Lago for our anniversary. It was great! It was on a Tuesday evening right after work. Super quiet, only a few people there, but the food was fresh and delicious. My wife the Caesar salad to start (we kept joking Elaine would have enjoyed her big salad), and I had the Porchetta, which we enjoyed. She had the lamb and I had the salmon, and after trying a bite from each others meal we both wish we had picked the other's meal... We the a bottle Ravenswood zinfandel that was a decent dry red wine. Overall, a very enjoyable experience. More...

Best venue to host events!The staff and Manager were so helpful and made the evening a night to remember. From the great AV supports, to the servers constantly walking around with yummy appetizers to the skilled bar staff, this venue hit it out of the park! Even when we forgot to bring something, the management was quick to assist and made it run without a hitch. Not to mention the spectacular space and view. Would recommend to anyone hosting an event from 100- 350+ people. More...

Came here for a ball with my school. It was so much fun, though I'm unsure how much the venue contributed to it and how much external services contributed. We had a buffet style dinner with a portabello mushroom ravioli that was to die for. The servers were nice, kept our tables clean and the drinks full. Was a lovely experience that I will remember forever. They had a photobooth set up and we got great photos from it ! More...

I was here for a wedding reception. I can't speak to the quality of the food since i didn't try anything. I will say the venue is very nice. Beautiful and spacious, the views made the evening incredible. If i we're getting married this place would be on my short list. Highly recommended. More...

5 stars for the super yummy food they served as with a smile yesterday during the Ice Dragon Boat festival. It was a crazy day with thousands of people going in and out for two days, making the place a mess but the staff just smiled and made us feel welcome. Thanks to the staff and the management for being so kind. I More...

Excellent location for gatherings and events. The view of the lake, especially if you happen to be there at night, is beautiful. The staff is professional and courteous.It is the price of food and beverages that gives this location four stars. Should price not be a deterrent however, then consider this to be a five star review. More...

I’ve been here for events only multiple times. The venue is big and the staff for food and drinks is generally super nice and friendly. The coat room is kind of small which kind of sucks if you have to check in your coat yourself because there’s always a huge rush. But overall I’ve always had fun here More...

Wedding review for Vista Room:We had our wedding here in June 2018 and were blown away with everything. Gyneya (owner and coordinator for us) was simply awesome. She answered our multiple questions and emails at the drop of a hat and accommodated us with every single one of our needs and desires. She was there the night of our wedding and ensured that everything ran smoothly. Her staff were unbelievably kind and friendly to us and our guests. They set everything up for us and everything was perfectly set up. They really relieved a lot of stress in the planning part. The food was great (we had chicken, salmon, and duck served) and the prices for food and alcohol were all very reasonable, especially compared to other venues. The views were beautiful on Dow's Lake and the location could not get any better. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in Ottawa for a reasonable price in a great building and location. More...

Amazing food quality and the service is impeccable! Got married two weekends ago in the Main Restaurant and the experience was unforgettable. The food is upscale high-end but portions are filling! My favourite is the chicken with cheddar mashed potatoes. Gyneya and her staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Everyone was extremely accommodating, polite and outgoing. My decor company cancelled on me last minute and did not show up. Gyneya and her team quickly improvised and hung up lighting and draping for my ceiling decor. The venue turned out beautiful.

We just held our wedding there for 170 guests.From our initial meeting, the owner, Gyneya, went above our expectations to make our day successful. She was really good at presenting the options, helping us with our budget and providing planning advice.The week before the wedding she made sure that we had everything in place for it to be successful and helped us make a detailed schedule for the night. She also suggested and accomodated little details that made a world of difference.The day of our wedding, due to rain, we asked them to flip the room two hours before the ceremony so it could be held there. Their flexibility was astounding. We had a beautiful ceremony and a great time. Our guests were impressed by the room and the food.We had an awesome wedding and I can honestly say it is in great part thanks to Gyneya and the Lago staff. More...

Firstly, Gyneya is amazing! From day one, she answered every little question we had and in a prompt manner. After discussing our needs with her, she advised us of an estimate which was realistic from the beginning and there were no hidden surprises in the end. During all the visits, her organization made us feel at ease and confident in our choice. Her professionalism took a lot of stress off our shoulders, she knows what she is doing and she does it well! Secondly, her and the staff at Lago went above and beyond the whole entire day. From setting up decorations, to helping me fix my bustle multiple times since it didn't want to stay. They were ready, willing and eager to help in any way that they could. We can't wait to go back on one of our anniversaries! More...

I've used the Groupon here twice and have been happy. I wanted to provide some insight about all the negative comments:1) This restaurant is primarily a private-venue for weddings, etc. Almost all of their weekends are booked up for private events. I had to use mine on weekdays. 2) If you leave a voicemail they will call back in a timely fashion. I do admit that they hardly ever answer the phone, which does seem like poor service. Once you can adjust to the top 2 points, it's a pleasant experience. Each visit the food was delicious and the service was quick and friendly. More...

Went their with my girlfriend on a Tue night to use up a Groupon. Although no one was there to greet us (place was empty at 6:30pm), the host and only waiter at the time Rembrandt got us seated comfortably near the fireplace. It's a big place with nice ambience and awesome views of Dow's Lake, although obviously suited/adapted for large events (weddings, corporate, etc.). I wasn't expecting much in terms of food quality, but I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with every dish, very high end presentation, and delicious!! The Groupon is well worth it, as there is enough choice for appetizers/mains/desserts, and it included an acceptable bottle of wine and specialty coffees as well. And Rembrandt offered truly excellent service and made us feel comfortable the whole evening. Definitely recommended and I will be going back for sure. More...

I just had my wedding at Lago on Saturday July 9th. Gyneya and her team were amazing! A M A Z I N G!!!! All throughout the year Gyneya was very prompt to email back and answered all of my questions. They were very accommodating to our schedules when we needed to meet. The day of the wedding it had rained and we had planned to do the ceremony on the balcony just before the ceremony was to begin it started to rain. The staff worked their magic and pulled everything together inside. It was beautiful. They set everything up for us and made sure it was perfect. The food was amazing! I didn't see one plate with food left on it. Everyone raved about the food and service throughout the night. I was so happy and lucky to have my wedding ceremony and reception here. I'm still in awe! I loved it! More...
