Went with a couple who have a home in the Tahoe area. They are regulars of the restaurant and I could not be happier. The menu was excellent and the wine list solid. My entree was the truffle butter noodles and they were excellent.

Luckily we were able to get spots at the bar, but you'll probably want to get reservations. Great duck gnocchi, osso bucco, and great selection of wine and beer. Also a wonderful view of the lake.

Christy Hill is a great restaurant in the middle of Tahoe City. I was there on my own so couldn't really give the wine list the attention it deserved (sadly). My food was very good - the hamachi tartare as a starter was particularly notable. Friendly staff. The view in summer over the lake would be good - in December... More

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
