What a buzzy place, we sat at the bar enjoying happy hour. A couple of G and T's and the best food. It had a great atmosphere and the staff were excellent.

I and wife went here on our trip to lake tahoe. Nice view of the lake , staff very friendly and the food was excellent. Had the short rib which fell off the bone and my wife had the land and sea. Definitely worth the money.

After being turned away at an empty restaurant around the corner, because we didn't have a reservation, we really lucked out when the kind hostess at Wolfdale's gave us a table for two, no problem. The lovely décor and impeccable service by Charles were matched perfectly by the fine selection of dishes. My petrale sole special was delectable, as were... More

We first stopped by for happy hour drinks and appetizers and the view of the lake. Liked it so much we returned for dinner. The Surf 'n Turf was excellent, and the chef gave us a summary of the meal when the waiter presented the dish. Very friendly atmosphere.

My wife had wine and i had a specialty drink which were both pretty decent. We both had tomato soup which was good. She had halibut... More

We visited on a Saturday night of a holiday weekend, fashionably late, but the were able to accommodate us after a short wait. We both ordered the seafood stew over purple rice. It was amazing! Desserts ordered were Afogato and Peach Kuchen which were fine, but not extraordinary. Service was excellent. Only drawback was our table was near the bar... More

This is our go-to restaurant when we visit Lake Tahoe. This time we had the ahi and hamachi sashimi, which was fresh and delicious. We had bay scallops, which were delicious, though on the small side. As a main we had the Thai seafood stew, which was outstanding. It was loaded with perfectly-cooked seafood (mainly shrimp and scallops), a rare... More

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
