“Good Food and Generous Portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We came as a party of eight and they gave us a nice quiet room in the back, which was pretty much ours for 2 hours. The food was quite good, and the service not bad. They have some unique dishes that are tastefully served and very generous portions. Not inexpensive, but not super pricey either. The dinners $25-37 include a nice salad. I do not drink a lot, but our friends raved about the wine selection and the draught beer was only $3 - bargain of the evening. I am a stickler on cleanliness, and all of the dishes and glasses were sparkling clean. The only negative was that they hit us for 22% group tip. This I thought a bit high.

“Excellent food atmosphere and presentation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Our 3rd night in Tahoe and finally a good restaurant. Started with a cajun shrimp bisque that was delicious. Chilean Sea Bass cooked to perfection, my husband had a marinated shrimp n pasta dish which was also excellent. Excellent portions including sides of fresh veggies and mini potatoes. Service was superb. Atmoshere warm and cozy. All in all we will be back again before heading home. Don't miss this restaurant.

“Intimate and original, convenient to Heavenly slopes & casinos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Wonderful spot within walking distance of rentals near Heavenly ski resort. Individually owned, with an eclectic menu that includes several wild game options in addition to traditional fare. Old fashioned attentive service by wait staff.

Unique menu, well prepared. Staff was very friendly and even suggested other places to eat throughout the week. Must have the seafood cheesecake appetizer. Incredible!
