    Since 2005 go to Fridays Station 4 to 5 nights a year. When first started service and food came close to matching the views. While the space is the same there feels to be a much more "hurry up" to the way service is delivered. Bob at the front desk acts like he's doing you a favor even when reservations are there and you are on time. Escargot, Caesar salad, as starters were good, the bread is great. Filet was fine but not worth the price. Sad but we're done with Fridays Station. Cost too much to walk out feeling like you were just there to leave a tip...

    the food was very good, the steaks done perfect, the service very good, until a large group of 100 showed up. They should have closed the restaruant for that large of group, the noise level was not tolable after the group showed up. We left without desert or coffee just to get out of there.

    How disappointing for my birthday. For the chef to prepare sea bass & tempura lobster (really) to a customer with zero flavor, no 'wow' factor, and absolutely dull is inconceivable to me as a customer. Who approved a 'tempura lobster'? Senseless? High profit for a tiny tasteless dish?? Fish was held too long in the freezer or frozen & refrozen? We are all customers, even the chefs are customers. How how how could they prepare & serve this? Never will return. I will pass the word that Harrahs must be hurting financially to do this to customers. Even the appetizers of prawns & tuna were not edible. Not shushi grade tuna! Touch skin & flovorless. staff are 'salesmen' attempting to convince the paying diners all menu choices are 'life is good'

    Friday's is an excellent dinner spot and the view is awesome. We shared the seafood broil and it was fantastic. They make sharing easy by splitting main dish and adding veggies and starch for a nominal charge. The escargot was a wonderful appetizer. I can't say enough about the service, very attentive. Definite a jewel in fine dining!

    My wife and I just celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We live in Gardnerville, NV and never tried this restaurant. This is the best the I have ever been to. I highly recommend this. The waiter ( Mike ) was excellent. Everyone wished us a Happy Anniversary. The view was perfect. This is now and will always be our spot for our future Anniversaries.

    Started with shrimp chowder. It was quite good, heavy, creamy, but very flavorful. The Caesars with good, not great. It needs coddled eggs and/or mustard for color as it was a white cream. The veal chop was quite excellent and tender. It was paired with the best mashed potatoes I have ever eaten. All this with a bottle of Pinot and I was in heaven. The view from the restaurant is one of the best possible.

    We made reservations ahead of time to ensure that we could eat a great meal prior to going to "HISTORY OF EAGLES" concert at South Lake Tahoe on Friday 29-AUG. Our waiter RON ensured that we had our order for wine & dinner in as quickly as possible so that we could arrive at the concert before it started, and he pulled it off! Great waiter, fantastic food, good wine, outstanding view. Totally recommend, but please be aware that you'll spend some $$ BUCKS for fantastic food.

  • food great, service lacking
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    Food was great, but service was lacking. First, a guy named Doug who took our drink orders, seemed very arrogant. When we were eventually seated, one of our party was given a wine glass that had lipstick all over it. The waiter, Ron, who was actually very friendly, just took the glass away, threw it out and replaced it with a glass of the cheap house wine, which was much inferior. So we were shorted one glass of the good stuff. We had to assert ourselves and tell him that the cheap substitution was not acceptable. He had gone to great lengths to tell us that he would do anything possible to make our dining experience a good one. But when there was a problem, we had to really push to get him to make it up somehow.

    Overall this was a great fine dining experience. It is expensive for my taste but I wanted to show some guests to Tahoe a fine time and this surely did the trick. The food was perfect but it was 40 minutes from the time we ordered until the entree arrived. This was probably more noticeable to our group because only one person ordered a side salad. The service was great and the servers and busing staff were friendly. As for the view, how can you beat looking over Lake Tahoe?

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    This place had great potential; however they have a maître D that is not service oriented and is actually rude to people. We asked for a table closer to the window and had asked for it in our two month advance reservation. I am also a diamond member of the harrahs total reward but the matre D would not put us in one of the several tables that was closer to the window. Two of the tables stayed vacant the entire time we were there. Again they were rude. Food was Ok but nothing makes up for the poor service.

    We are often asked for recommendations for good restaurants in Tahoe. We checked out Friday's Station since we haven't been in several years. The T-bone steak and prime rib were good. Prices are $4 to $5 higher on the current menu than the web page. Seating is a "crap shoot" regardless of reservation requests. We were seated in a remote location. When we asked for a table with a lake view (per reservation request) we were told that wasn't possible but we could be moved "closer." We watched the same seating pattern happen with other couples. Complaining seemed to result in better tables. If you are willing to take your chances on seating and willing to pay the price, you can get a good steak.

    We have been dining at Fridays station for at least five or six years. So imagine my surprise when we go this time and it is horrible. It was loud, serice was bad, food was of poor qualiy and it took forever. We will never go there again, I'm sorry to say. We eat at nice restaurants all the time and the prices were inflated, the wine prices elevated, and the whole experience was disappointing. There were seven of us and none of us will return. It was a weekday so there is no excuse for the service. It was a very unpleasant experience. We had gone to Edgewood the night before and it was wonderful!

    you would think after makingf reservations in January or February for August 4th, that my party of four would get the window seat with a view of the lake that I requested. This was a special event for my grand-daughter; needless to say, I was very dissapointed. the concert was great, the rooms at Harrah's fine, however, the four hundred dollars I spent for dinner could have been put to better use.

    Our experience was less than optimal. Our reservation was at 5:30pm - when the restaurant opened. Even though there were many empty tables the host tried to seat us at a table behind a post blocking any chance of a view. The presentation of the food needs to be updated, we had the same "triangle of rice pilaf" five years ago. The restaurant itself is also very dated. The view windows very full of fingerprints. The only good thing was the server was very polite but did the minimum to make our dinner pleasant.
