A memorable dining experience awaits you as you enter the Christy Hill Restaurant in the center of Tahoe City. The restaurant sits just 100 feet above the shoreline of Lake Tahoe on an elevated embankment offering diners a panoramic vista. The intimate setting offers guests a view that is only upstaged by the cuisine, wine and service. Spectacular sunsets that can be seen from every table is just one of the many reasons that Christy Hill was voted "Most Romantic Restaurant" by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Christy Hill is one of the best, if not THE best restaurant on the lake. The menu is outstanding, as is the service. JB is great. He is versed on the menu and wine list. And you can’t beat the view. It’s a must if you are visiting Tahoe City.

We had friends from out of town, so chose Christy Hill as our dinner spot, right on the lake. At the end of the evening all four of us were raving about the meal, the service, and the view. Thanks Christy Hill for making our dining experience the best ever!

I've eaten here many times and always wish I could come again more often. (I live almost 2 hours away.) On my most recent dinner there, I tried the tasting menu (paired perfectly with wines per course) and was blown away. This is a gem!

Christy Hill was the perfect treat for my birthday! Our server, Karson, was very attentive, but not leering. He was very friendly as well, we felt as if we had known him for a while!
The food was outstanding! With myself being a chef and my husband a lifelong restaurant worker, we were totally blown away by the food pairings and tastes we were experiencing.
We would definitely recommend Christy Hill to anyone and everyone!

Been to Christy Hill many times and always had a great experience. Unfortunately, this dinner was made memorable by the lovely views from Christy Hill and not the meal we have come to appreciate. The food (pork chop and black cod) were not particularly flavorful, and we're labeled mediocre by both of us, no ice in the water, no bread (not everyone is on a keto diet), waiter forgot wine and water refills and dessert (Espresso creme Brulee) was meh. Hope this was just an off night and not the future experience at Christy Hill as we considered it to be the best restaurant in Tahoe City.

Nice local place that tries to step up from the many other waterfront comfort food places around the lake. It kind of does, but is a pricey for the quality it delivers.

Everything was excellent - food quality, service, location, ambiance, etc. The only suggestion is related to pacing, as our various courses were delivered as soon as we took the last bite of the current course. We did the tasting menu with wine pairing, and found ourselves rushing down the last gulp of wine to keep up with the next round and course. But other than that we were very happy and absolutely plan to return.
