This is one special restaurant with incredible ambience and views of Lake Tahoe and great background music - absolutely the best menu in Tahoe!

The food here is upscale and very well prepared. Certainly not snooty, but a cut above the flannel and jeans ambiance of most places in the area. A good choice for a special occasion. Be aware; this is a beer and wine only establishment. I missed my martini.

Our concierge referred us here for our Sat night dinner, menus looked great online as did comments in the reviews. BUT...found it to be a disappointment. I ordered the duck confit, and my husband order the Moroccan Lamb entree. Duck breast was tender but tasteless, the leg was perfect texture but WAY TOO SALTY. A light sauce and lots of... More

We had picked this out ahead of time as a place of choice. Locals suggested other places, but we are very glad we stuck to our research. This place has outstanding chef, service, and view. The terrace has heaters. We had salads, entrees, a cocktail each, and dessert. Each course used locally sourced foods, was innovative with a twist on... More

The service was absolutely outstanding - from the welcome hostess to server to other helpers. The food was good and quite innovative - very similar to San Francisco restaurants where I'm from. Views are fantastic. Best was the attentive service.

After a long day of hiking and exploring the lake for the first time we found ourselves in Tahoe City for dinner. We spent about 30 minutes looking at all of our choices and I saw the balcony of Christy Hill and said that's where I want to eat for the sunset. But it was Saturday at 6:00 on a... More

This was our first time at Lake Tahoe and we randomly found this place. We saw the place from outside and it looked lovely. What a wonderful view of the lake.. So we approached the manager asking (with very small expectations) that we could booked a table for that night. Fortunately Teresa was the manager (honestly, one of the best... More

At 6PM on a Monday, we asked for a table. Although the place was practically empty, except for the bar area, the hostess, with a bit of an unwarranted attitude, said she couldn't squeeze us in until 7:15, but we could eat at the bar. An explanation or apology would have been in order, since we would have been out... More

We had my husband's post 40th birthday dinner here. The staff were amazing with attentive service and the food is excellent. The food is well sourced and is of high quality - my chicken was delicious. My autistic son had a meltdown upon entering the restaurant. Robin (the owner) and the maitre d were very understanding and helpful. I ended... More

This was our third visit here, and this latest dinner was as good as our other visits. We first came here in May 2011 are were very impressed. We then came here in August 2013, when we sat outside on the gorgeous terrace. On this visit, we sat at a table for two in front of the beautiful large windows... More
