Lake Chalet opened in January 2009 and is located in the historic Oakland Boathouse. Since then, we have been proud to provide quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food.
Lake Chalet's interior, designed by the award-winning CCS Architecture, reflects the hip sensibilities of the surrounding area while also paying tribute to Oakland's storied past. The multi-level restaurant offers dining directly over the water out on the Dock, stunning views of Lake Merritt in our Lake Dining Room, a 80 foot marble bar complete with floor to ceiling windows and more.
