  • "My wfe and I wentvto ghe Chart House for our 12th anniversary. It was the Single best dining experience I have ever had. The food and service were only rivaled by the view of the sun setting over Lake Tahoe. The prime rib was cooked to perfection. When I order it cooked medium it usually has a little tug. At the Chart house the prime rib melted in my mouth and was seasoned brilliantly. My wife and I are definitely gonna spend many more anniversaries here."

  • "This restaurant sits above Lake Tahoe, with almost all the tables offering a spectacular view of the lake. We went at 7 pm and got to take in a gorgeous sunset. Also, they offer an extensive, fresh delicious salad bar. My husband's crab was OK but my Asian Mahi was the best fish I've ever had! Their mud pie is to die for. Our server was informed about the wine coupling and menu questions....and just a warm person. We enjoyed a memorable evening with out of town guests at Chart House."

  • "The Chart House staff was amazing for us this weekend! They had a specialized menu printed for our party. They allowed us to decorate the table with our own tablecloth, decorations and favors. The service staff was attentive- above and beyond- including taking our picture with the gorgeous Tahoe sunset in the background. It truly was an amazing experience there. I would go back in a heartbeat for any special occasion or whenever I happen to be in the area. A FABULOUS experience!!!"

  • "We loved our dinner at the Tahoe Chart House on Kingsbury. Our waitress Carrie (sp?) was terrific! She made excellent recommendations - which we loved. It was snowing and the view from our table next to the window was unbeatable. We switched our reservation to the earlier one at 6:00 - due to the storm - and were so happy we did as the snowfall mountain view was stunning! Everything tasted so good - OMG the ginger soy sauce on the scallops was amazing, and the mashed cauliflower was so good. This is a great place to go for a special occasion. Thanks Chart House!"

They even gave us a mud pie on the house. That and the new diamond I presented to my wife made it a very memorable night!"

  • "Back again to enjoy the view and great food.....lived up to expectations, even though 1/2 of the food order was ordered wrong by our waiter...he "owned up " said' sorry', manager said' sorry', but thought maybe they would've compted a drink or dessert on almost a $100 bill, but no such. We didn't ask, but that makes for good-will IMHO. We had a quiet table and overall very fine experience, of course we'll be back, they treat Landry's members well, with personalized menus and VIP cards at the table. We always recommend Chart House to any Tahoe visitors. Pricey but worth it, especially for a special occasion....like having your taxes done earlier in the day."

  • "After a 4 hour drive from the Bay Area to Lake Tahoe on a Saturday afternoon / evening., Chart House Tahoe was a welcome spot upon arrival with great food and drink ! After a little wait upon arrival (even though we had a reservation), and a drink in the highly popular bar. The maitre d' found us in the lounge and took us to a nice booth table not far from the expansive salad bar. Their appetizers were excellent and the waiter besides being outstanding in recommendations and friendliness, split our salad on to two separate plates - one for each of us - without even asking. Great service, great food - we were happy:-)"

  • "My boyfriend and I came up to Tahoe for a one night escape. The night before he said he wanted crab for dinner. I found Chart House, and made reservations for 6:45. We got there a little early and sat at the bar to enjoy a drink before dinner. The hostess came and got us from the bar when our table was ready. For this time of year we had the perfect time, because our booth seat (not a window seat) had a great view of the sunset over the lake. I seriously think there is not a bad seat in the house, so I wouldn't worry about requesting a special table. BF had the crab legs, I had the crab crusted mahi. It was supposed to be some other fish but they were out, and the moscato sangria. A little spendy for *our* usual, but very nice, worth it."

  • "It had been a few years since we have dined at this restaurant. There weren't any rave reviews for the five meals that were ordered from our group. The waiter was very friendly and prompt with his service, and his recommendation for our appetizer (Pea and Edamame pot stickers) and my chopped salad was wonderful, but that is were it ended for me."

  • "When Todd our server greeted us, we asked to order appetizers &he said he would be back. He eventually came back after avoiding eye contact with us for far too long. The night continued to go on like this, it was my Birthday dinner.We couldn't help but notice that he gave the table next to us impeccable attention after the guy purchased a Landrys diner card of some sort (something we were never offered, but would have bought just to receive the service that comes with it). The manager also spent a lot of time checking on them but never spoke to us. Our server forgot multiple things. The food was great but the price should ensure at least mediocre service ! My husband and I are both in the industry so we are generally very laid back diners"

  • "A traditionally loved spot. We always try to make it to this spot for the sunset, and intimate dinner setting. This time we had a large party, and were seated in the back corner of the bar along with the other large party tables. It's just not a welcoming environment that close to a bar when you want to have dinner. The shining star was the service!! We had a patient serve staff, and they couldn't have been better. Wish the food had been served warmer, and the mashed potatoes were cold, and became starchy. Nice wine list. This is still the best spot in South Shore!"

  • "My family has been coming to this Charthouse for over 20 years. We eat at this Charthouse about 5 times a year. Its on a hill overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe, so you cant beat the setting. Service was great. I was planning to get the fresh salmon or mahi-mahi, then was disappointed to learn that both were listed on the Monterey Bay Aquarioum Seafood Watch "Avoid" list - the salmon was Atlantic and farmed and the mahi-mahi was imported from Costa Rica. I didnt want beef, so I got the chicken, which was good but not great."

  • "Dinner was great. Hats off to the chef. Unfortunately, our service was rather distracted with personal co-worker conversations and failed to even deliver bread to the table. If you are looking for a good dinner but can forego good service - this is your place. We came here last year and had a wonderful experience. Hopefully, it will be better for you too."

  • "Expensive restaurant. So I expect GREAT service. Our server was bouncing off the walls, talking so fast that you could hardly catch what he was saying. He was polite and condescending nice. He really was not sincere. Server recommended a certain wine which we were not familiar with. Server OFFERED to bring a small sample so our party could try it. Server brought a glass with a regular size wine pour in it. We commented that it was a large sample. The glass went around the table and no one liked it, we did not order the wine, but we ordered other drinks instead. When the bill came, he charged us for the wine!. I was appalled. I wanted to say something, but our party instead decided to just leave without confronting the server."
