It was great but if you are celebrating a special occasion I’d recommend calling directly instead of including it in your open table reservation as our birthday occasion/request wasn’t recognized

Recently dined at 19th Station! The view of Lake Tahoe was beautiful! Our server Lissa was very good and the food (Chilean Sea Bass & Surf & Turf) was very good! The disheartening part of the dinner was the FINISH. We ordered coffee to go with the wonderful looking mango mousse. It did not taste as good as it looked. When we were served the coffee, it was less than room temperature! When I asked the server, I was told it was hot! I requested another 2 cups of coffee; to which was returned cooler than the first! I said forget it and check please. Lissa complied and “took off” the dessert and “cold coffees.” Upon leaving, the maître d, Brian asked “how was the meal?” I answered, very good, except for the coffee. He replied, “You’re the one! The kitchen forgot to turn on the coffee burners!?! GOOD MEAL, BAD FINISH!

We are so energized when we included in our dinner plans "19 Kitchen & Bar". With a friend (7*) coming in from Texas we planned to have a great evening. Thanks to Table Captain Jim we explored new dishes in all courses. I ventured out into that days special and order 12 oz Prime NY steak that was a complete disappointment. Presentation of sides away from the steak was acceptable, the steak coating and both sauces for the steak were fine, mostly medium arrived when requested medium rare-was okay...I would say 2oz was enjoyable, but the balance was all hard membrane and non trimed material. We did have other dishes to enjoy again and in the future again, but steak again is a large question mark for the new manager and chef to sort out.

We started with their special lobster bites, delicious! Next we had their mixed green salad, very fresh tasting. Our final dish were the chicken lettuce wraps. Unfortunately, the chicken was mostly non existent from the dish. We pointed out the lack of chicken to our server, Alex. She offered to give us a new plate of the Chicken wraps and to remove it from our bill. The second plate was the same as the first....very small pieces of chicken, all we could really taste were the water chestnuts. Definitely don’t recommend this dish. Overall, it was a good experience,our server, Alex was very attentive and friendly and made us feel welcome.

View is fabulous....other than that, service was slow,and food marginally ok. The hostess was dressed in white jeans and an untucked shirt, which did not set the tone. We didn't feel that anyone was happy we were there.

Great food, outstanding obiances and service. My only issue was my steak was overdone and at those prices if I want a medium rare steak I should see red unfortunately mine was very light pink and Brown just overdone still tender and good flavor.

We went here for our 41st anniversary and the view is spectacular. The service was great with both a waiter and waiters assistant. My steak was prepared perfectly medium rare but the garlic mashed potatoes needed more seasoning.

Loved our table near the window. We were there during sunset and the view made the meal. Food was good, not great, a little pricey but I get that I’m paying that “casino up charge”.

This restaurant has continued to be consistent with absolutely delicious food that is plentiful as well as served beautifully. The unobstructed lake view and overall ambience this restaurant offers is unparalleled! My husband and I look forward to dining there every time we vacation in Stateline.

Awesome view of the lake and mountains. For this type of dining expect a long time however the service was exceptionally slow. We waited a long time to get a drink because the bar was so backed up that we never ordered a second. They brought the wrong food but were quick to bring the correct one.

The service was exceptional (Thanks Sean!). My husband and I shared the Filet Mignon. One of the best we've had in years and cooked to perfection (medium rare). We added the lobster mashed potatoes and they were outstanding!!! We also added the wild mushroom stir fry - our only disappointment. They were mushy and tasted kind of "off"...
Overall it was a great meal, and you certainly can't top the view! We'll be back!

Sea Bass was fantastic. Cowboy Bone-in Rib Eye was charred with a tasty rub and comes with 2 delicious sauces. Tempura Lobster bites were crunchy, but juicy & had a nice dipping sauce but didn't really need it. Oysters were delicious. All in all, one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long while & not just in Tahoe but the Bay Area & Los Angeles as well.

Had a big birthday reservation last Saturday night. I called to edit the reservation and add on two more people, they were very friendly. The service is always amazing here. We were the last group in the restaurant after they closed and they were not rude, pushy, at all! It was refreshing and we will be back. Thanks.
