    First of all, there was no wait time. We were able to walk in and be seated. We were able to get a table with a view which I had requested. The view from the table of Lake Tahoe was incredible. We, my 3 sisters, mom and I, were there to celebrate our moms 83rd Birthday. The drinks and the food were fabulous. We even split desserts. We were ultimately surprised when the bill came, much less than we had anticipated. Our service was excellent. Friday's Station provided the best service, food and ambiance that I have every experienced. We plan to return there, as often as we can.

    My wife and I decided to give this a try since I was attending a conference in the hotel next door. The end result, we were not disappointed. I asked for a window seat to watch the sunset. The restuarant was accommodating, but we were on the opposite side. That really didn't matter though because the view was great. The service was spot on and the food fantastic.

    Requested a window seat so our friends from the east could view the Lake. Got a table around the corner next to a post with a view of the mountain. No acknowledgment of our friends' birthdays even though I made an effort to tell the restaurant prior to our arrival. Food was not up to the normal quality. One guest asked for no mushrooms on her dish but got them anyway. Service was attentive but they did not listen. Very expensive for the food you get. Would go back for the view if nothing else. Good wine list.

    My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary dinner. My only complaint is that after we were sat we waited over 10 minutes for the waiter to stop by. Once he got the ball rolling everything went smoothly and was served in a timely fashion. They boast a rather large wine menu but the "by the glass" options are far more limited that one would hope for. I had the lobster and it was by far the best lobster I have ever had. Perfectly cooked and very nice portion size. My husband had the special, a sea bass and it was also perfectly prepared. They served us a lovely little anniversary dessert to finish the night off and it was very tasty.

    Mike provided a wonderful service to us ! Lovely and warm welcome from the door by the Maître D', followed by the hostess and then greeted by the table. Working for a Michelin star restaurant as a restaurant manager, I can tell you that even if that they are not Michelin rated, the service and the food is top notch ! The place to go for dinner when your travels bring you to South Lake Tahoe :) A memorable experience I greatly recommend this restaurant ! I loved the oysters to start, followed by Halibut and scallops for main courses (fish speciality) and finished with a real crème Brûlée :) Enjoy !

    I used to live in the area about ten years ago and we would frequently dine at Friday's. Back in the "good old days" Friday's was moderately priced and the food was outstanding. At today's Friday's the prices are outstanding (~$100/person) and the food is only moderately good. I'm afraid we have made our last visit to Friday's.

    We were looking for a restaurant that had both a great view, both steak and seafood, and great service. We found that at Friday's. We made a reservation on OpenTable, once we arrived, we asked for a table with a view and were able to grab the last one! The service was fast and friendly. We enjoyed our experience.

    I requested a nice table with view for romantic birthday dinner. When we arrived they knew nothing if it. We were seated in the least scenic spot at restaurant I also had to remind them of birthday celebration. If you want special requests on opentable please make them happen. The food was just ok for the price. We have had much better for less price.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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.
