Whenever we visit Lake Tahoe, we make a reservation to dine at Evan's. Over the years we have probably visited twenty-five times or so, and every experience has been outstanding. I won't necessarily recommend any specific entrees because everything has been excellent. In addition the staff has been friendly and very personable. We look forward to future visits.

Evan's is a small, cozy and friendly restaurant that serves truly delicious food. Their wine list is extensive and the hospitalilty is warm and welcoming. Not to be missed!

This was our first visit. We read the reviews, and the only people who were complaining had anniversaries. We didn't, and had an amazing dinner. We were a group of 6, including a fussy teenager eater. We were welcomed and seated promptly. When our server came to review the specials she brought a white board with them written down, including ingredients and prices. The board was left until after we ordered, so no having to remember what was what. Service was right on the mark, not too fast or slow. I had a shrimp appetizer that was excellent, most everyone else had salads. I had the sea bass entrée, which was a good sized piece of seared fish on top of a breaded risotto cake with arugula on top. Yum. My husband had one of the steaks, I don't know how he finished it. Presentation of the food is also top notch. What ever you do, save room for at least a shared desert. I went with raspberry ice cream with chocolate sauce. Two others had the cheesecake, both plates decorated differently, Chris had a three layer chocolate mousse cake. The prices aren't cheap, but you do get what you pay for, no stinting here. It was worth the drive and we will be back!

Best meal during our Tahoe stay. Would rate this the top restaurant in S Lake Tahoe.Wife and I enjoyed the filet, cooked to perfection. Staff was friendly, knowledgable and engaging. Numerous specials offered in addditon to a varied menu. Outstanding wine selection. Entree selection were very reasonably priced.
Desserts were outstanding, we enjoyed the Tres Chocolate and the Lemon Napoleon raspberry. Most highly recommended!

Elegant but relaxed atmosphere. A very small restaurant with attentive service, outstanding cuisine and a very good wine list that is not overpriced.
