Tahoe City favoriteThis was our second time at Christy Hill and I don't think a visit to Tahoe would be the same, for us, without eating here. Our server was excellent...personable, friendly, knowledgeable. The food is as good as anything you get in SF (even better than some as they really try to source locally). I had pappardelle with mushrooms, chicken and peas (I don't do the dish justice with this description but I'll just say the pasta was fresh and perfectly cooked, the peas were definitely just picked, and the mild morel flavor pulled everything together)...my husband had the halibut--also excellent. I saw some diners with very well behaved kids (I think there's a kids' menu???)...Best food on the lake, in my opinion...6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMexceptional serviceI took my bride of 24 years to Christie Hill to celebrate our anniversary. Because I included a note in my openTable reservation, they knew it was a special occasion for us. We were promptly escorted to the best seat in the house and were given complimentary champagne. Service was personal and frequent but not intrusive.
My bride enjoyed the halibut while I ordered the bison short rib. Presentation was gorgeous, though the portion of bison was ridiculously small. We did not find anything to our liking on the dessert menu but, knowing it was our anniversary, our server probed our preferences and brought us a treat that we both enjoyed -- again, complimentary.
All in all, a beautiful view and extraordinary service.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSits high up, looking outSits high up, looking out at Lake Tahoe from the North Shore. The view is absolutely stunning.

Great Servers....amazing view...cant wait for our next trip5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique flavorsAll courses wonderfully presented, but uniquely tasting was the gnocchi appetizer with duck and wild mushrooms, the house made blueberry sorbet and the house made caramel ice cream. Can't wait to return for the other tantalizing appetizers and main courses!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food as alwaysDelicious meal. Very consistent. The pork chop is amazing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayChristy Hill is an excellent place to have a nice dinner with family and friends. The food was delicious and the service was great. We all really enjoyed our dinners and will be returning soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat views and service; Good food.Service was excellent and views are beautiful. They were very accommodating to us with our 3 month old child. The Hamachi appetizer was excellent, but my wife's asparagus bisque was so-so. I got the Duck Duet which - breast was ok, duck confit was very good. My wife's short rib was overcooked and dry. I got the dessert cheese plate which was not very adventurous and a little boring. My wife's creme brulee was very good. Cappuccinos were excellent. The place was beautiful and you could tell many people were there for special occasions. We got a reservation the day of, but they said the window seats had been booked for months.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you care bout what youIf you care bout what you eat, how it looks, and a great taste, this restaurant is for you! The view of Lake Tahoe is gorgeous and in summer they have outdoor dining with unique and interesting food options that you don't find around the lake elsewhere.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTo die for food and view!The food is to die for!
