We had a lovely Easter dinner
We had a lovely Easter dinner at Sunnyside... Our favorite place on the West Shore! The service was exceptional! Archie, our server, was engaging and made wonderful recommendations for our dining experience. We sat next to the window at sunset... Breathtaking. When you combine such great food, lovely service and a panoramic view of Lake Tahoe... You simply can't go wrong!

Brunch with a view
The setting was an A plus. While it was a buffet, the service was excellent--bringing drinks from the bar, clearing plates and making sure everything was just right. The food was very good as well. I think the desserts shoud have included more chocolate items as it was Mother's Day and women love their chocolate. Overall, it was a great experience!

Sunnyside on Tahoe's West Shore
Beautiful atmosphere right on the lake...great specialty cocktails. I had the zucchini sticks and my husband had the crab and lobster cakes (excellent)...we both had fish for our mains...well prepared though mine was a little heavy (this due to the preparation with butter--was still good; I just like lighter food and should have ordered accordingly). Nice wine list. We had lunch there the following day after a long hike...heirloom tomato and mozzarella sald was lovely! You can go pretty casual here, so nice for drinks and snacks after a hike, kayaking, etc. It can get cold at night so bring a jacket if you want to sit outside (they do have space heaters). One of my favorites on the West Shore.

Deck-side, lakeside on a summer day. Everything about Sunnyside screams, "summer vacation"!
The food is fresh, the menu versatile and unpretentious. The mood is endless summer and effortlessly elegant .
Wonderful appetizers, delicious Hanger Steak and decadent desserts.
Don't forget the reservation!

Sunnyside - annual stop!
We have been to Sunnyside many times and love it more each time! I cannot say enough about Tahoe and this gem we found on a kayak trip. We normally stay in InclineVillage, but have discovered the West Shore and now make Sunnyside and West Shore Cafe regular stops. We got married at West Shore this past June and had a pre-wedding gathering at Sunnyside to welcome new and returning individuals to Tahoe! We even recommended wedding guests to stay at Sunnyside....they did and loved it. Check out Sunnyside...right on lake, beautiful views, good food.
Wonderful, wonderful place!!!!!

Great for Special Occasions
We celebrated my wife's 55th birthday and they were ready for us when we arrived. Table with a view and several of the servers told my wife 'Happy Birthday' as they served the various courses. All the food was well prepared and served in a timely manner. The waiter was at our table 'just enough' so we felt like we were alone. My wife had the Elk and loved it! I wasn't as brave and had the flat iron steak and it was great. The salads were tasty and the vegetables were crisp. They served us Hula Pie for dessert with a candle on top, it was amazing!

The Sunnyside Restaurant is Tahoe dining at its finest: spectacular scenery inside and out, friendly & well-trained staff, delicious & innovative menu. We appreciate the consistency of excellence we have experienced at the Sunnyside and look forward to returning again and again.

Awesome place to eat and see Tahoe.
Sunnyside is a place where you can get a great meal while watching one of the best views of Lake Tahoe. The staff are all friendly and add a lot of fun to the experience. I have been coming up to Tahoe for 40 years and always have to have dinner at Sunnyside aleast 2 or three times each summer.

It's hard to imagine a more beautiful spot for dinner anywhere in the world than the deck at Sunnyside on a warm summer evening. Seasonal, local foods creatively cooked, friendly service who are there when you need them, and hula pie for dessert. This is what makes dining out worthwhile.

Fantastic place in Tahoe City
My family and I went here to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday and we had a great time. The restaurant is very nice with a fantastic view of the lake. The food was good and we were treated to a free Hula pie because it was my mom's birthday. The hula pie is good, but way overrated. The restaurant was very loud, but we still had a very nice time.

Although this was one of the
Although this was one of the busiest nights to go to Sunnyside, they did a very good job handling the crowd. We dine here often because the food is always good and the service is very friendly. Our appetizers were good (fried zucchini is always the best but flatbread was undercooked and cheese wasn't entirely melted), salads were original and fresh, and our entrees arrived after a long wait because I'm sure the kitchen was slammed. We will keep going to Sunnyside and I know that on a less busy night, everything will be perfect.

dinner on 7/14
party of 5, excellent service, excellent food and you can't beat the view from the dining deck along the lake. Been here many times over the years and it never disappoints.

A Perfect Spot!
The four of us had an outstanding experience dining @ Sunnyside. The meal was prepared w/consummate skill. The fresh local vegetables were especially flavorful and the entrees were memorable. The service and views were exceptional.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I always enjoy dining at Sunnyside.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Twenty-four hours later, the view is the strongest memory, but dinner was really delicious. The elk was wonderfully done with drunken figs and........ The Harvest Platter of cheese, apples, olives, etc was a great and would be an appropriate way to finish the meal as well. The lava cake desert was good, not worth a rave, but this choc-la-holic devoired most of it!
Nice wine list. Great service.

Great summer night on Lake Tahoe
Amazing view of Lake Tahoe! The Cosmos were great. I split the bison and still had a generous serving with mashed potatoes with a soft white cheese, shredded Brussels sprouts and fresh figs; fresh warm bread basket. Dessert of strawberry shortcake was delicious, too, and large enough to share! It is a very popular summertime venue, but the service was not compromised and it wasn't too noisy too hear across the table.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was awesome, service not so great. We got sat around 8:05 pm for our 8pm reservation. The table behind us got sat a good 10 mins after. They had their bread and apps on the table before we even got our bread. We received our apps just before their entrees. They were done and got their bills before our entrees arrived. I had a party of 4 and was at the restaurant for 2 hours. Pretty positive that at one point, everyone's drinks were all empty and had to wait 5-10 mins for refills.

A favorite for 25 years
While we only get to visit Lake Tahoe every few years, it is a restaurant we will not miss.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time. Food drinks, service all very good. The only negative vibe at all was we had reservations on the deck @5:15 and felt just a little rushed. For the amount of money we paid for the experience, I would have liked to hung out without feeling a little like they wanted to fill our table again quickly. I have been before and would go back again,

Delicious Food, Fantastic Lake View
Consistently excellent food, good drinks, and excellent view of Lake Tahoe, especially at sunset! The service is also consistently friendly and efficient - the front and back of the house is obviously well managed. JPS

Dining outdoor at sunset at Sunnyside is a delight. Food, service, and view combined to make a wonderful evening for pre-wedding celebration.

Classic Lake Tahoe Area Dining
On the west side of Lake Tahoe just south of Tahoe City, Sunnyside is a great spot for a casual lunch or dinner on the outside deck right on the lake or a more fine dining experience in the dining room, still with lake vistas. This time ate in the dining room and enjoyed the seafood chowder, seared scallops on a crabcake pesto risotto and the hula pie.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another fantastic meal
Service was outstanding as usual. The meals were awesome - all while sitting on a deck on Lake Tahoe....could see for miles.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sunnyside offers the best lake view seating indoors and out. Menu is Five Star, balanced and exceptionally prepared and presented. They offer a wonderful gluten free menu which we require. The "hula pie" will top your dessert list!

Beautiful Spot Good for Veggies
The food was great and the Veggie dish was super flavorful. Also, the martinis are wonderful!!!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My girlfriend and i stayed in the sunnyside hotel which was great! Had a package deal where we got a $60 dinning credit to the restaurant. Had a bottle of wine before we went downstairs to eat. We sat inside by the patio and watched a full moon rise right behind us. Perfect view of the lake as its right on the water. Food was very flavorful and filling as we got good portions with fast, attentive and accurate service. Price was not bad either two entrees and two sides for $43. Will be coming back again!! Thanks sunnyside.

Would have given the food
Would have given the food a 5 star rating because it tasted wonderful, but it came out of the kitchen cold...Twice. They even totally remaid the dish for us... Still... The evening and entire Sunnyside staff is wonderful.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a restaurant which is a favorite among locals and frequent visitors from the bay area. This is a restaurant that really knows how to prepare zucchini sticks. The kobe burger is sensational and other items on the menu are also good. Don't miss the hula pie, also a favorite.

Wonderful Dinner at Sunnyside
We got engaged at Sunnyside, so it will always been a special place for us! Our recent dining experience was outstanding. I had a stuffed scallop dish that was truly heavenly. Presentation was beautiful, and the taste kept me raving about it all through dinner! My husband had the Rib Eye Steak, and he loved it! Very tender and yummy.

For over five years Sunnyside has been our group's destination for Thanksgiving dinner. Upon arriving we were seated immediately at our favorite booth. We were greeting by our waiter but it took quite a while to place a drink order. Once the wine arrived all seemed to flow perfectly. The tradition turkey meal was delicious. A few at our table ordered from the vast menu and enjoyed a tasty meal. After the dessert course, we were given a turkey sandwich in a brown bag to take home. A delightful surprise and lovely touch.
Sunnyside has the Thanksgiving dinner experience dialed-in. Everyone enjoyed the evening and no one had to clean up!!
