    Great scenic view high atop Harveys and right near the Lake. Treated like royalty from the time we walked into the venue. Great selection of wines by the glass. Excellent, diverse menu selections. Our server, Brian, was spot on .. just the right amount of professionalism, charisma, charm and knowledge. The food was delicious .. just an all around fantastic meal.

    The food at 19 Kitchen & Bar is good but not great and definitely not worth the prices they charge. There is a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe; however, because we had a party of six we could not sit by the window. Window tables only accommodate up to a party of 4. We assumed, incorrectly, that this was an upscale restaurant and we dressed accordingly. However, that is not the case as we saw many diners in shorts, flip-flops, etc. The service was quite slow so we were there much longer than we anticipated. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you enjoy spending $50+ for a steak you can find almost anywhere.

    Had reservations for a Friday evening at 7PM. We were seated immediately. The view was beautiful and the food was excellent. I had the veal chop and guest had the lamb. The portions were quite large and for me, it was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time.

    The views are spectacular, the food is great, the only problem is the noise. They should not put small groups and large groups in the same area. When they do you cannot have a conversation with the person next to you!

    We had friends in town in mid-July and took them to 19 Kitchen after our fantastic experience there in early June. What a disappointment this time. We were 6 minutes ahead of the opening and the hostess said to wait in the bar area. After 15 mins, we went up to find out about our reservation and she had forgotten we were even there. Our server didn't bring our salads for 50 minutes after he took our order and only remembered after I asked him if we were getting those ahead of the meal. Also, the menu on a Wednesday had risen in price by 40% over what it was just 4 weeks early. Talk about gouging during tourist season. The view is spectacular, but the poor service and price gouging will ensure we don't go again until late September.

    The restaurant itself is very nice. The prices were over the top. For a same steak (for example) at other fine dining restaurants would be about $15.00 or less. Only two or three entrees came with sides, such as vegetables or potatoes, the rest was totally ale carte. We don't mind ale carte for the most part, as wee don't usually care for the sides, but when you have a steak for example, and that is the only thing on the plate for $50.00, it's out of line. We will NOT go back. It's a total rip-off. We saw others around us order just appetizers, and no wine or drinks, and that was it. So I doubt we were the only customers who felt that way. Couple others had just soup and salad, where as a couple others split an entrée. WAY TOO EXPENSIVE!!!!

    19 is an absolutely wonderful restaurant. The lake view, service and food are a must. I highly recommend the sea bass with risotto. At the end of your meal they bring you their signature cotton candy. It melts in your mouth instantly. Be sure to make a reservation.

    My girlfriend and I ate here on July 5 and things started off well: our salads were tasty and our server was friendly. Then things went downhill: my braised salmon was badly under-seasoned. I'm truly not sure there was any salt in the dish. Worse, after bringing the food the server disappeared for so long that I couldn't even get my hands on any table salt. So I gave up on enjoying my $38 entree. Bummer. The view was nice , though.

    As a 7 star member at Harrah's with an early reservation, the seating person insisted on seating next to a party of about 35 and insisted in her restaurant that was the only seat available for us so we walked at 5:45PM in an empty restaurant.

    Food was good, but way too long a wait between salad and entre. Waiter forgot our drinks and didn't check back with us until the entre was served, and even then we had to have the server tell him we still didn't have our wine. On the up side, my steak was prepared to perfection and accompanying sides were excellent. We are not extremely demanding, but when paying a high price for fine dining, we expect to have attentive service.

    We live in Reno and purchased a Living Social voucher. We normally drive up to Tahoe a couple times a year and this was the perfect excuse to get out of town. The Maitre 'd, Bo Young, was friendly and professional and we enjoyed our conversation with her. Our server, Jimmy, was also great. The view was beautiful and food spectacular! Would definitely recommend!

    Beautiful view, excellent fine dining food. Service was top notch and the waitstaff very attentive. Was disappointed in the midweek "Bistro" menu. Very minimal choices for dinner. The waitstaff, however, went out of their way to make sure I got what I requested. I always check menu choices before going to a restaurant and their website said nothing about a different menu for during the midweek. Nothing I saw on the Bistro menu was I had chosen from the web menu. Although, as I said, they went out of their way to make me happy. I stronly suggest this restaurant for any special occasion.

    The View of Lake Tahoe at sunset is the main focus, but the food was very good too. We shared several small plates with the seafood crepes being a favorite. It was a birthday celebration and rather than have cake, we were served fresh warm donuts with dipping sauces. Fabulous.

    Food has a significant pre-prepared component according to staff so special dietary needs are handled by removing the offending sauce or other "interesting" part of dish. Restaurant was not busy but so-called chef was not interested in making a sauce fresh for the dish. At $50 a plate I expect a lot more than Applebee's.

    Ate here two years ago for the first time with my mom on our yearly Tahoe trip and really enjoyed it. Last year we tried somewhere else, which just didn't compare. We returned this year and were very glad we did. We shared the 20 oz. Ribeye with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was excellent. Definitely try the fresh doughnuts for dessert!

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here today. Lobster corn chowder was superb. Dinner salad also excellent. My scallops were very good. My wife had the salmon w/ lemon caper sauce and we both felt that the sauce was maybe a bit uninspired. We live on the California coast so perhaps our expectations for sea food dishes are strenuous. Service was great, view was spectacular and the service spot on.

    19 Kitchen & Bar is an exquisite place to celebrate those amazing milestones in one's life or simply to just spoil ourselves. The food is definitely in competition for the 4-5 stars. If you get the privilege to sit at the window, the view of Lake Tahoe from the 19th floor at sunset is one you will truly remember. We had the surf & turf and the seared ahi tuna with prawns and mango slaw. No food was left on the plate, licked clean, too good to leave any behind. We highly recommend this restaurant!
