We were visiting Reno for my daughters volleyball tournament and decided to venture to Lake Tahoe for the day. We read some reviews about this restaurant and decided to try it! The absolute best food, service, atmosphere and experience we have ever had. Louise made the best Caesar salad tableside. He had extensive knowledge in wines, and treated us like... More

Ambiance is Victorian with red velvet booths, tables with club chairs, flocked wallpaper and brass chandelier with crystals. Service is excellent and so is food. Luis still makes the best table side Caesar salad. He and Rick are part of very attentive waitstaff.There are many table side and flambeed entrees and desserts to choose from, such as steak Diane,etc. There... More

Wow!!! I will try to put my experience into words. I am by no means wealthy, but was on vacation with enough in my wallet to order stuff without asking how much it cost for one night at least. We wanted to take my in laws out for a nice dinner and stumbled upon this awsome place on accident. My... More

Great meal, had filet mignon, just melted in your mouth. Great service, nice atmosphere. It didn't smell like smoke, which was a huge plus. Great drinks at the bar. Very clean, and you can tell the waiters really enjoy their job and really knew their stuff.

We had an amazing and delicious dinner at the Crystal Bay Steak & Lobster House at Crystal Bay, Nevada. The restaurant is part of the Crystal Bay Casino and the restaurant ambiance was superb. It was a throwback to the 1950s and 1960s when Frank Sinatra and other luminaries worked the casinos in the Lake Tahoe area. The steak melted... More

First problem is walking through the dark and very smokey casino to get to the restaurant from the parking garage. Our party of 4 just had wine, salads and appetizers. The wedge salad had a sizeable portion of lettuce but could have used more of everything else. The fried calamari strips were very disappointing. Small portion and bland. My companion... More

don't mind the casino entrance, the restaurant is very nice, cozy and service great. Lobster was delicious. Great recommendations on wine etc. Worth the price.

This place feels like you've walked back in time and you might find the rat pack at a nearby table - but the food is surprisingly good! If you stick to the traditional steak house options you will not be disappointed. Also, this is one of the few places I've seen that will do table side cooking - ask them... More

This used to be our favorite place in North Lake Tahoe. But the last time we were there the steaks were really bad so we haven't been back since. Nice atmosphere but too many people from the casino wander in in shorts or whatever.

This is a throw back to an elegant dining experience that you would expect in a las vegas gourmet restaurant. There is table side service for excellent Caesar salad , bananas flambee, etc. Food is top notch. Waitstaff is very professional, supervised by Luis, who is on top of everything. Shrimp scampi appetizer, Caesar salad, lamb chops, peppercorn steak and... More
