  • "the view of the lake is amazing...especially at sunset. the round booths are set up high and offer a very nice view over the tables at the window. the oysters, the creative cocktails, the fresh fish, the truffle mac n cheese...yummy. very kind, helpful, informed waiters and bus staff."

  • "The view from the 19 Kitchen and Bar is beautiful. The Chilean Sea Bass and Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection. The best dessert was homemade donuts with a dark chocolate dipping sauce. and then the final last minute sweet was homemade cotton candy."

  • "The ambiance was nice with a pretty view of the lake. The staff was friendly, but seemed to be overwhelmed with tables. The food was alright, my steak was slightly over cooked, my husbands was way under seasoned. The sauces were cold, but the mashed potatoes were alright. Decent wine menu. The most fun part of the evening was getting cotton candy at the end with our check. Usually places like these ask if you are Celebrating anything special, they never asked. Tried it once but we will find another nice restaurant next time we are in town."

  • "Reserved a table 40 hours ahead, asking for a window view of the lake and was seated on the side, even though a window view table was open for 60 minutes while we ate. The table we wanted and asked for sat open for one hour, until someone more IMPORTANT came to sit there!!!! We were almost done dining when the important people got the best view!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not fair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will never go back because of that.. RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • "Nice dinner but give plenty if time. Serving staff excellent. Food a little overpriced however the view is worth it as long as your table has such a view. Recommend more the appetizers than the dinner. Chicken was over cooked. Next time would try others. Had called to add one to the reservation and was told they had to move our time by 30 minutes. We showed 15 minutes early as resturaunt was only 30% occupied. Overall slightly above average."

  • "Arrived for dinner before a concert. Managed to order & enjoy a few drinks & starters that were all very good, but then after ordering entres, waited for 45 minutes & were avoided by the waiter from then on. Finally canceled the entres & left.. Had the potential to be great, but sadly fell short."

  • "The food and general service were just as fantastic as before for the most part. Our server is who was lacking .. he was slow and inattentive. Needs a refresher course in "Serving 101." Didn't check back after each course was delivered to see how everything was or if we needed anything. There was a long lag after our entree plates were cleared before he presented himself to ask about dessert. Now onto the "good" ... the hostess, Maitre'd, back server and food runner (Irina) all did a stellar job. All were very personable, professional and a great respresentation of your organization. The food and ambiance never dissappoint!"

  • "We were very happy with our dinners! I had sea bass on a bed of risotto, with lobster bits, my companion had the rack of lamb, both done beautifully. The only complaint was that the soup, a lobster, corn chowder, (also delicious) was served about 5 minutes before our wine arrived, poor pacing, and the only reason for 4, and not 5 stars. But we will not hesitate to return again!"

  • "We have been coming to Kitchen 19 for many years for our special occasions, and it always has met our expectations. The staff is very well trained and does a superb job. The menu is American fare but up to 4 star quality. The wine list is very good, as is the dessert list. The view of Lake Tahoe is outstanding, especially when requesting a window table with lake view!"

  • "Our second visit in a week. Tried a few more dishes and another wine .. all was every bit as delicious as the first night there. Brian was our server again and was once again fantastic! Definitely a MUST do when in the South Lake Tahoe area!"

  • "My son learned what market price means. Steak & lobster was $72. He ordered just the lobster... $101.00 for a lobster tail??? Felt that price was excessive."

  • "Great scenic view high atop Harveys and right near the Lake. Treated like royalty from the time we walked into the venue. Great selection of wines by the glass. Excellent, diverse menu selections. Our server, Brian, was spot on .. just the right amount of professionalism, charisma, charm and knowledge. The food was delicious .. just an all around fantastic meal."

  • "The food at 19 Kitchen & Bar is good but not great and definitely not worth the prices they charge. There is a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe; however, because we had a party of six we could not sit by the window. Window tables only accommodate up to a party of 4. We assumed, incorrectly, that this was an upscale restaurant and we dressed accordingly. However, that is not the case as we saw many diners in shorts, flip-flops, etc. The service was quite slow so we were there much longer than we anticipated. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you enjoy spending $50+ for a steak you can find almost anywhere."

  • "Love this venue, foot is great, views are amazing and Men, don't miss the surprise waiting for you in the bathroom!!?? I only wish the ladies room had something interesting. Special treat was the yummy pink cotton candy that melts in your mouth, I haven't had cotton candy in years and this was better than I ever remembered!!! Enjoy!"

  • "Had reservations for a Friday evening at 7PM. We were seated immediately. The view was beautiful and the food was excellent. I had the veal chop and guest had the lamb. The portions were quite large and for me, it was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time."

  • "The views are spectacular, the food is great, the only problem is the noise. They should not put small groups and large groups in the same area. When they do you cannot have a conversation with the person next to you!"

  • "We had friends in town in mid-July and took them to 19 Kitchen after our fantastic experience there in early June. What a disappointment this time. We were 6 minutes ahead of the opening and the hostess said to wait in the bar area. After 15 mins, we went up to find out about our reservation and she had forgotten we were even there. Our server didn't bring our salads for 50 minutes after he took our order and only remembered after I asked him if we were getting those ahead of the meal. Also, the menu on a Wednesday had risen in price by 40% over what it was just 4 weeks early. Talk about gouging during tourist season. The view is spectacular, but the poor service and price gouging will ensure we don't go again until late September."

  • "The restaurant itself is very nice. The prices were over the top. For a same steak (for example) at other fine dining restaurants would be about $15.00 or less. Only two or three entrees came with sides, such as vegetables or potatoes, the rest was totally ale carte. We don't mind ale carte for the most part, as wee don't usually care for the sides, but when you have a steak for example, and that is the only thing on the plate for $50.00, it's out of line. We will NOT go back. It's a total rip-off. We saw others around us order just appetizers, and no wine or drinks, and that was it. So I doubt we were the only customers who felt that way. Couple others had just soup and salad, where as a couple others split an entrée. WAY TOO EXPENSIVE!!!!"

  • "19 is an absolutely wonderful restaurant. The lake view, service and food are a must. I highly recommend the sea bass with risotto. At the end of your meal they bring you their signature cotton candy. It melts in your mouth instantly. Be sure to make a reservation."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate here on July 5 and things started off well: our salads were tasty and our server was friendly. Then things went downhill: my braised salmon was badly under-seasoned. I'm truly not sure there was any salt in the dish. Worse, after bringing the food the server disappeared for so long that I couldn't even get my hands on any table salt. So I gave up on enjoying my $38 entree. Bummer. The view was nice , though."

  • "The food was very good. The view was really nice. Prices were a little too high. Some entrees served without side dishes."

  • "As a 7 star member at Harrah's with an early reservation, the seating person insisted on seating next to a party of about 35 and insisted in her restaurant that was the only seat available for us so we walked at 5:45PM in an empty restaurant."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food was good, but way too long a wait between salad and entre. Waiter forgot our drinks and didn't check back with us until the entre was served, and even then we had to have the server tell him we still didn't have our wine. On the up side, my steak was prepared to perfection and accompanying sides were excellent. We are not extremely demanding, but when paying a high price for fine dining, we expect to have attentive service."

  • "My husband and I went here for our 6 year wedding anniversary. What a beautiful place with beautiful views. The best!! They do have a dress code so come prepared. Great wine, great food and great ambiance!! I have always wanted to try abalone and it was wonderful. Definitely worth the money!!"

  • "We live in Reno and purchased a Living Social voucher. We normally drive up to Tahoe a couple times a year and this was the perfect excuse to get out of town. The Maitre 'd, Bo Young, was friendly and professional and we enjoyed our conversation with her. Our server, Jimmy, was also great. The view was beautiful and food spectacular! Would definitely recommend!"

  • "Beautiful view, excellent fine dining food. Service was top notch and the waitstaff very attentive. Was disappointed in the midweek "Bistro" menu. Very minimal choices for dinner. The waitstaff, however, went out of their way to make sure I got what I requested. I always check menu choices before going to a restaurant and their website said nothing about a different menu for during the midweek. Nothing I saw on the Bistro menu was I had chosen from the web menu. Although, as I said, they went out of their way to make me happy. I stronly suggest this restaurant for any special occasion."

  • "The View of Lake Tahoe at sunset is the main focus, but the food was very good too. We shared several small plates with the seafood crepes being a favorite. It was a birthday celebration and rather than have cake, we were served fresh warm donuts with dipping sauces. Fabulous."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Food has a significant pre-prepared component according to staff so special dietary needs are handled by removing the offending sauce or other "interesting" part of dish. Restaurant was not busy but so-called chef was not interested in making a sauce fresh for the dish. At $50 a plate I expect a lot more than Applebee's."

The food was excellent from the appetizers to desserts. Our waiter Brian was great and very patient and accomidating to all of our questions. The view is spectacular!"
