  • 98 yr. old birthday dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    Starting at the front desk, we felt so welcomed, the two other gentlemen that waited on us could not have been any nicer. We had a lovely table in the corner over looking the other casinos, which is a great spot with children (12 and 19). The boys and my 98 yr. old Mother had a memorable dinner The food was absolutely delicious. We have been several other times during the year and look forward to being at Friday Station when we can. Thank you from all of us.

    The food and the service was just OK. OVERPRICED. The server was on hurry, we barely had time to look at menu she came twice asked if we was ready. The view was very nice. We seat on bar to wait a little bit. The waiter on Bar was pretty rude.

    We made a reservation through Opentable and asked for a nice table because we were celebrating a birthday. I called the restaurant on the day of our reservation and again requested a nice table for a celebration. We arrived for our reservation on time and were told they "would do their best" to give us a nice table. We were then led by at least 10 very nice vacant tables to a table in the corner, right next to the loud busing station. I asked to be moved and was told I'd have to wait another three hours in order to get a better table, even though we passed at least 10 table that were empty and unoccupied. Our host was rude, unapologetic and very unaccommodating. We left without eating.

    I ordered the little gem salad and it was ok, the lettuce was a little soggy. The double cut lamb chops were delicious. I ordered them medium and they came out perfect. The mango chutney that they were served with was so good. The lamb was flavorful and tender. Well worth the money. I substituted sauteed asparagus for the seasonal veggies. All in all my dinner was excellent and the service was top notch. I did not have to wait long for my food and it came out at the perfect temperature. The wine I ordered was also very good. I will eat here again!

    The food was good, but seriously overpriced. The waiter, Doug, was a 30 year veteran, was super attentive, but a bit too talkative and 'in your face' during the meal. I'm sure the view of Lake Tahoe is spectacular, but we were there when it was dark. Wouldn't go back.

    The service here is top notch. We had an awesome, professional, and personable server. He was attentive, yet didnt hound us. Our water glasses and our wine glasses were never empty. The food was average, especially for the price, ambiance and type of service recieved. Our steaks didnt exude great flavor, nor were they "melt in your mouth tender." I ordered mine medium, and it came out medium well - very close to the well done side. Overall, a great experience for a special occasion.

    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 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.

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!
