Their specialty is smoked trout appetizer. They have an extensive wine list and excellent service.
I had the Thai seafood entree with shrimp, scallops, cod,pickled cucumber, red rice in a yummy light curry sauce. My husband had duck in cherry sauce. Almost everything has an Asian influence except for the burger. Atmosphere is pleasant and some tables face the lake. Prices are high. Happy hour is at the bar only with reduced prices on appetizers and drinks. Some appetizers are edamame, pork pot sticker, smoked trout, pickled beets,chicken lettuce leaf, etc.

Last Saturday night was the end of a very busy day for us. We wandered into Wolfdale's without a reservation where we were immediately pleased with the comfortable atmosphere and friendly welcome we received. The service was attentive, but not intrussive My Alaskan crab was cooked perfectly(MOIST AND TENDER). From the hostess, who greeted us, to our servers who attended us, we had a most extra-ordinary meal. Thank you Wolfdales for the great team work that made our evening so enjoyable.

Sorry, I hate doing this to anyone!
But the menu rarely changes.
VERY expensive, small portions type of place.
O yes you get the presentation.
You'll find the wine list extensive as any in the bay area,
but you'll be disappointed as i have everytime i've been in there

We have eaten here often and have always enjoyed our meal and the congenial service. The only suggestion we would make is to stick to the Asian influenced items (there are many). They are really the Chef's passion. Other items seem to be bland. Tuna Poki Cones are great, and the fish stew is terrific. Once again, we have to comment that the wine list is really, really expensive...can't understand why they insist on having such a lofty list?

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and Chef Douglas Dale on Saturday night after our dinner, and we quite impressed. He is very personable and is the "smile" to the restaurant!

The food was amazing, specifically the Alaskan Hailbut with Asian Glaze, Wasbi Creme, and Bamboo Rice, Excellent! Also, the Durham Ranch Filet Mignon was fantastic, the meat was prepared quite well, it was so juicy, tender and savory.

For Dessert, we had the Chocolate Souffle Cake with Salted Carmel Ice Cream and it was also fantastic.

Great restaurant for dinner for Business, or with Friends or Date Night, will definitely be back soon!
