US - Asian fusion cuisine, very sophisticated and high-end place. Do reserve during popular dinner times. With that be prepared to have small portions that are really more to inspire your palette and offer a food experience... Many interesting combinations. Small complaint - my scallops came out a bit too cold for my taste. Polished although not super caring staff... More

“Wolfdale's is the best food on Lake Tahoe! My wife and I have had dinner all around the Lake, but we keep coming back to Wolfdale's. The food is out of this world. The presentation is artistic and tasteful. The combination of flavors are creative and sumptuous. The service was outstanding. Attentive, but not in your way. This is some... More

In addition to individual couples dining here, we do a birthday celebration of 6 people every year at Wolfdale's because they never disappoint. Yes, it is pricey, but you get terrific food, nice wines, and excellent service for the money. Do not miss their smoked trout appetizer which is very good and well priced. Whether you eat inside or out,... More

My food was excellent but not everyone at our table was equally impressed. I am not sure if the food quality has slipped a bit since the last time we ate there 20+ years ago or we have just become quite picky due to years of great eats. This is a small and intimate venue with wonderful service. Be sure... More

Wolfdale's is a great place to celebrate in Lake Tahoe. Our meals were delicious, the drinks delightful and the service spot on! The desserts were unremarkable, skip it and order the mudslide instead!!

High prices, small portions - fine dining, but you'd better have many courses, or a small appetite. Good service, attentive staff.

The food and service are top notch. Ask for an outside table in the summer. We went on a Thursday night when locals have a Bocce Ball league that plays down below in the restaurant's court, and that was lots fun to watch. If they have Tempura Soft Shell Crab on the menu make sure to order it! And also... More

We stopped just for martinis before another reservation, which we cancelled because the atmosphere at the bar was so welcoming and the menu looked great - and it was. We prefer eating at the bar - where the company was interesting, food, excellent and beverages right there.

This place is a must go in the North Tahoe Area. Being open since 1978 by the same Chef/Owner and Family is a testament. Always fresh and good consistent food, menu changes, staff is thorough and views aren't bad. Plus deck dining, bocce ball and fire pits in the summer.
