“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Really excellent salmon and great pavlova. And wonderfully friendly efficient staff. Good atmosphere and fun to watch the cooks at work through the window. Best meal in Tahoe Vista by a long way

“A great find that delivered perfectly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This small but neat place is affiliated with the Cedar Glen Lodge on N. Lake Blvd. It is found easily, but there is only street parking. The ambience is great - six tables only, quiet and bright. The service is excellent, and the food (we had chicken and salmon) wonderful. The deserts our neighboring table ordered were not that impressive, so we did not order and could not comment based on experience. The price is very reasonable. We loved this place and recommend it fully. Do make reservation early if you can, for space is very limited.

“Great Food-Get the Truffle Fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The food was excellent. Service was also excellent. The truffle fries were delicious, as was the flank steak and Arugula salad. Wonderful restaurant and from the looks of it, family friend also.

“Rustic Reward”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

While staying at the wonderful lodge, we had the opportunity to eat dinner at the Rustic Lodge. It was so good the first time that rather than looking for an alternative we simply decided to try some of the other things we'd been looking at the night before. Each meal was fantastic, with excellent service and a reasonable price to boot. I highly recommend this as a dining option whether you're staying at the CGL or not.
