Absolutely beautiful food and impeccable service, in delightful waterside location.
Fantastic venue! Beautiful views on a clear evening looking across the water. Great service (Sarah) and stunning food. My only recommendation would be to dampen the floor as you enter the main dining area left of the entrance way feature wall. There were resonating 'thuds' as people walked across it. This wasn't a major issue, just something that would prevent the ambiance from being disturbed.
Service was impeccable and the staff knew their dishes and could explain the unusual ingredients. Setting over the lake was perfect. The food was different in the perfect quantity and very tasty. Not all the courses were for us but we were delighted to try them. For fine dining with an open fire and relaxing setting it is a must. Even the back ground music was varied and interesting.
This was the first time my husband and I ate at the Boat House and we were very impressed with the service, how each dish was described in detail, great selection of wines, the staff made it an enjoyable experience and the views of the lake at night were wonderful.
Fantastic service, food and atmosphere and views. highly recommend.
A lovely evening.
Excellent experience Attentive enthusiastic and knowledgable staff Happy to match wine by the glass with 4 course menu My new favourite
The staff were excellent.
We'd been to the Bosthouse a couple of weeks ago for a set dinner with 25 people and the food and service were both excellent. Tonight the two of us enjoyed the same high standards of food and service. There are only a few restaurants in Canberra that manage to combine first class food, service and atmosphere and this is one of them.
As I don't eat too much, I tried to go for the 4 dishes menu and my partner for the degustation with matching wine, but that was not possible as the 2 of us must select the same. It's the only thing that I would improve
excellent venue, food, wine and service. Staff were very professional and friendly, providing excellent insights into the composition of each dish.
Perfect in all ways
Service was fantastic, the food was devine. thoroughly enjoyed our special birthday celebration. A wonderful surprise dessert was brought out for my husband too.
Excellent service, too much food! Interesting flavours, we really enjoyed it.
A wonderful experience! The food and service was fantastic!
Even though staff was quite young, I was very impressed with their competence, confidence and knowledge. Special mention to the young blonde lady serving us most of the night, an absolute gem! 1 entree arrived late (kitchen issue) handled gracefully by the staff. All meals were thoroughly enjoyed. As Canberrans born and bred, first time visitors, we will certInly be back very soon, didn't realise what we were missing! Thanks Ingrid and family
Very good meal, service and views for our special occasion

Outstanding service and food. Whole experience was extremely professional, staff were wonderful.
Food was delicious and staff were very attentive. The only issue we had was the air con was a bit too cold, but this was rectified by the staff when they were made aware.
Lovely location for a quiet dinner
Great location, very well presented multiple courses, topped off with attentive and friendly service
we celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a better place .The views of the lake are incredible the food and the atmosphere was great ,I really recommend this place , specially if you have a special occasion . Very good
Staff were absolutely amazing – I even received my special request (high five upon arrival).
Flawless, great view , great food and great service!
Excellent experience, thank you!
My friends and I booked here for a joint birthday dinner and The Boathouse did not disappoint. It was the loveliest, tastiest dinner I have had in months. We had a four course menu and felt stuffed and very satisfied at the end. The 3 of us had different mains and entree' but all of us agreed our food were just so delish. The staff were very friendly and the view was also great. I highly recommend this restaurant to all couples out there celebrating a special occasion or simply just wanted a taste of fine dining (funny was that in the room, only our table was not occupied by couples). It was a great night.
Very classy establishment in excellent condition. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Excellent food and views. Definitely one of Canberra's best.
Wasn't too happy being placed on the corner table and also right next to a couple discussing their Wedding plans all evening. It was just annoying this time that they were so loud. If they want to discuss their marriage there with the management ,they preferably should not do it in the dining hall next to other people.
Great night out
Fantastic views and a delicious four course meal.
Food, service, ambience at its perfection. I would rate the experience 11/10 if I could. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
