Stunning setting!

We called in for some wine and nibbles and were made completely welcome. The setting is superb and if the weather had been better we'd have sat outside with the tables with centre fire pieces. Everything we tried was delicious, would recommend.

Every year I stop by Tahoe and always have dinner here. The menue has lots of variaty so not easy to choose from. I had duck and the flesh fell right of the bone: 100%. The only drawback is the cost of the wine. 8-12 USD for a glas, that is in my opinion too much, as the argentine red... More

This meal was outstanding from start to finish. We had excellent champagne cocktails, shared the hamachi tartare and oysters to start, and then had the soup of the day (with duck), the gnocchi with duck confit, the lamb and the black cod. We shared the sticky toffee cake for dessert. Great food, great views and excellent service (Hazen). One of... More

This place is fabulous. Expensive but worth every penny. Relaxed atmosphere, can get a little loud but. comfortable and fun. Highly recommend this if you are looking for a very special meal and don't mind paying for it.

The food was good, the service was excellent, and sitting outside on the deck was very pleasant. The only negative is it is a little expensive, however, not more expensive than other similar restaurants in the area.

We enjoyed the oysters and tuna tartare appetizers. The Duck duet main course is fantastic. Loved the greens and polenta that came with it. The service from our waiter was fantastic. He was attentive in just the perfect way. The next time I'm in Tahoe City I will definitely eat here again. The restaurant is right on the lake with... More

Friends were visiting on our Tahoe vacation and we wanted to watch the sunset on the mountains. It was January so the sun dipped over the mountains about 5 PM - just the time happy hour begins at Christy Hill's. We had a glass of champagne and watched the mountains dim, soon to be replaced by the light of the... More

Every dining experience here is consistently amazing. Menu is seasonal and highlights the best meat, seafood, and vegetables available. Service is top notch too. And you can't beat the view and comfortable ambiance. Go here, you won't be disappointed!
