This restaurant is located in the heart of Tahoe City which is a great location overall as there are many dining, shopping bar choices all within a very short walk. Tahoe City is 'North Shore'. This restaurant sits lakeside with awesome views. The food choices were creative and the flavors and presentation were excellent. One of the better dinner experiences... More

We enjoyed our family and friends in New Years. The menu was easy and understanding. Our service was tapered nicely. Wine prices where cost to normal not crazy.

Fantastic location, excellent service and food. One of the best meals in Tahoe if you want higher end dining experience with some truly elegant and exceptional dishes. Great outdoor seating in the right season. Great date night!

We were very happy with our experience there. Food, wine & our waiter were very good. It was night time but if it were day light savings or lunch time the lake view would have been stunning!

After extensive research we chose to have one of our last dinners in Tahoe at Christy Hill. We started our meal with four different locally blended hot teas and they were all delicious. The pace of the meal was perfect from our foie gras, cheese plate and gnocchi small plates, to the entrees and desserts. Portions were not huge, but... More

There are less than a handful of restaurants with gourmet food and a view of Lake Tahoe. This is one of the best. I love the cozy atmosphere, interesting food and friendly staff. Make reservations because it is small. They have a great happy hour, but again, there aren't many seats in the bar area. I try to eat here... More

We went to Christy Hill because it was well reviewed here on TripAdvisor. Wow, it certainly didn't disappoint! The food was fantastic; friendly service. One of the previous reviews stated that only "foodies need apply" - depends, I suppose. If you're looking for a beer and pizza spot, this wouldn't be your venue. But if you LOVE good food (does...

We have tried and failed in past years to get a reservation because we waited to the last minute, but this year we finally got lucky and got a window table for 4 due to a cancellation. I am so glad we kept trying as it was well worth the wait! The restaurant is small but laid out very well.... More

If you like great food and superb service with a fantastic view, then this is the place to go. The wine list is extensive and the menu fabulous. We had the duck duet which appears to be a signature dish and the halibut which was very fresh and perfectly cooked. Both were excellent as well as the wine we selected.... More
