After a long da traveling from the east coast (getting up a the insane hour of 4:00, which I think shoukd be illegal, we arrived at our condo at the Rdge Tahoe, got settled in a bit and decided we did not want to go all over searching for a place to eat. We did not read any reviews, we were just hungry.
My gosh, who would have expected this very elegant restaurant in a ski resort! The menu looked great (it is not cheap) but you can certainly see how they can get these prices. Each table has fresh roses and there is wonderful, live, piano music!
My husband was talked into the lobster bisque "special" soup; I got the roasted beers and feta cheese salad and we both got the grilled trout, served over yam with a wonderful butter (lemon?) sauce.
The service was impeccable. David quickly took our drink orders and made recommendations and then told us that the trout, which we had already decided on, was the chef's specialty.
My salad was scrumptious and I can say without equivocation that my trout was the best I had ever had.
We will be here for a week so I think it is quite likely we will return. It is a bit expensive. With what I mentioned above, one beer and one diet coke, the bill was $78 plus then the tip, bringing total to almost $100. But it was worth it so we had no complaints. I highly recommend if you are in this area.
