Andrew is a wonderful chef , innovative and personable when he gets a chance to come out of the kitchen. His gnocchi is wonderful and I've never had steamed clams prepared in such a tasty way. I love all of the staff at Christy Hill, JB is a favorite , always smiling & upbeat and very experienced.

The food at Christy Hill is truly outstanding, is wonderfully fresh and seasonal, and is really interesting. Their location is prime, how could you not love being right on beautiful Lake Tahoe. They have maximized this location with inside seating, outside seating, plus an outside area with a fire pit. We had a large party there this summer and the... More

Took my hubby here for his birthday. What a great little spot. Lovely view at the lake and the food was very good. Service was nice and unobtrusive. The costs were a bit more than what I would expect from Bay Area dining at this quality, but we loved it and had a wonderful evening. I'd recommend reservations.

Would go back. The best meal we had in Tahoe. Great service. Good wine list and good selection of wines by the glass.

The food at this place is outstanding and the service too. If you are me and like different flavors this one is not to be missed. The diver scallop with pomegranate lentils and uni foam appetizer was very unexpected yet delicious. I had the halibut and the addition of raisins was wonderful and unique.

Our party of 6 got a lovely table with a great view of the lake. If the weather was warmer, I would definitely recommend sitting outdoors on their lovely deck. We thought everything from the cocktails to the soup/salads, main courses, specials and dessert met and exceeded our expectations. Service was pleasant without being overbearing. Would recommend and will come... More

CH provides a wonderful view of Lake Tahoe, but our latest meal there was very disappointing. Waiting for our reserved table for 15 minutes was OK but then waiting another 20 minutes for our waiter to appear was not. My wife's halibut managed to be overcooked and cold - a pretty clear indication that it had been sitting around for... More

This is a superb little gem tucked away off the main drag that has all the "wonderfulls" in one place. Wonderful food, wonderful view, wonderful service. It is definitely a special occasion place. We go there whenever we are in the Tahoe area and it NEVER disappoints.

Went to Christy Hill in Tahoe City, CA and ate out on the outdoor deck overlooking Lake Tahoe at sunset. It was a magnificent view, wait staff was knowledgeable and super nice and the food was fantastic! Every single thing we ordered for our table for 4 was delicious from appetizers to dessert. We ate and drank to our hearts... More

Christy Hill in Tahoe City is a great place for dinner with an amazing view of the Lake. It's best to sit outdoors on the deck. The food is very good and the service excellent. It is rather expensive, but most every good restaurant in Tahoe is also. We have been there many times and are never disappointed.
