Mediocre food. The salad and the soup we had were just OK, the filet mignon was certainly not prime and not well trimmed -- it had some connective tissue still attached. The venison tasted livery rather than gamey. What they call Tarte Tatin is a 2 inch circle of pastry in a pool of caramel sauce on which there is a bunch of cooked unpeeled (!) chunks of Granny Smith apples. I realize that single serving Tarte Tatin are not simple to make, but then just call it apple tart & be done. And please peel & slice the apples! This upside-down Tarte Tatin (= a regular tart) came with a vanilla ice cream (or so they said). It had almost no taste: Costco ice cream is superior.

The wine by the glass choices are $9 to $18 but the quality is low since roughly the price per glass is the 750 ml bottle retail price. If you like $10/bottle wines, not particularly well chosen, this is the place. (Wine Spectator endorsements are not to be trusted and fact that Six Peaks got one in 2012 (?) proves the point) Otherwise you are much better off bringing your own bottle and paying the reasonable $20 corkage or staying with beers and cocktails.

There are better choices in the village, and much better choices in Truckee and Tahoe.

Dear NewCareme,

As Executive Chef, I am constantly seeking opportunities to improve on our culinary offerings and therefore value your opinion and openly thank you for your feedback. We are constantly evolving our seasonal recipes and seeking out local ingredients from the farming and ranch areas that surround the Lake Tahoe region. We make everything fresh in our own kitchens – including our ice cream - which I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy. Our interpretation of the Tarte Tatin is meant to feel a little more rustic than the traditional dish, and therefore more in keeping with our mountain landscape. I am sorry to hear that our menu did not meet your expectations and hope that you enjoyed the rest of your experience with us.

Thank you again for your feedback,
Jason Friendy, Executive Chef

The food and customer service were great! I ordered the tortellini..., yum! The only drawback were the size of the plates. Being from Texas we're used to everything being big or plentiful. For the price we figured we were going to be served a little more than we did. So if you're looking for quality over quantity then this is your place!

Good selection, good service, very relaxing environment and pretty decent prices, considering you're at Tahoe. Food was promptly served, but courses were not on top of each other. I like their menu.

In a resort in a ski valley you are at the mercy of the owners by and large, so this restaurant might not have to try so hard, and whilst it does charge it also delivers exceptionally good food beautifully presented.
We had duck, venison and filet mignon entrees, all were excellent, but the desserts too were great, try the orange creme cake or the tarte tatin.

Thank JohnR888

I never expected this restaurant to be so good since it is a hotel restaurant that is in a remote area. Frankly I think the quality to cost ratio is better than the restaurant at e Ritz in Tahoe.
