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.

The service was great, the view was ok, the Cesear salad was delicious but the main entrees (halibut and duck) were over salted and not that memorable.

August full moon dinner with my 11 year old grandson - we watched the majestic moon rise over the mountains. Carson City locals - love dinner at Christy Hill, what a treat!

It’s hard to begin with the accolades for this restaurant, we have been coming here for at least ten years as our favorite restaurant. They greet you with the warm of coming into their home and that is how we feel. The food is always so amazing and impeccably prepared. The ambiance is so amazing, especially if you can dine outside and watch the full moon come up as we did. Our favorite waiter, J B, came by several times just to say hi and make sure that we were well taken care even though he wasn’t our waiter that night.
If you are at Tahoe and you don’t eat here, you are missing the gastronomic experience!

This restaurant is not only the best in the Tahoe area but exceeds all others around the lake. It is our only "go to" for visitors for food and view.

Every time we are up in Tahoe we make sure to have dinner at Christy Hill. We have been coming for years. The food is tasty. Service is superb and you can’t beat the view. Portions are a bit on the small size, especially for the price. Beer/wine by the glass menu could be improved by adding more options.

My wife and I were visiting the area for a wedding, and christy hill came recommended during our visit. Everything was special, wines by the glass list, great choices. Service touches, including a hard working owner who understands hospitality. From liver mousse to scallops, each individual dish prepared precisely, with balance and distinctive ingredients. Great experience.

Birthday dinner, great service, two out of our four dinners were good nothing over-the-top. This was our 3rd time at Christy Hill which is extremely expensive. And two out of our three hors d’oeuvres were good
Location can’t be beat.

My wife had a great salad.....heirloom tomatoes were killer. My ceasar salad was good, with great anchovies. My wife's halibut was wonderful but tiny portion. My ribeye was terrific but mashed potatoes were plain and veggies grilled but burned. Views of the lake were outrageous.

My first time at this restaurant. We enjoyed cocktails in the beach bar before our reservation time and were accommodated by a very friendly staff in our request for an outside table near the lake.
The food was excellent with standouts being the gnocchi and octopus appetizers.
For our main courses we loved the pork chop, halibut and duck. The wines we had by the glass were excellent and not overpriced which was a refreshing change.

Although I mentioned in my reservation it was my wife’s 60th birthday and the host acknowledged when we checked in, I got the vibe when the waiter brought the dessert menu that no candle was coming and I was right. I didn’t want to be a fool running after a guy for a candle.

Made us feel like second class. Thanks for ruining my mother's special 60th birthday dinner experience gift.

Placed a reservation on OpenTable and stated an outdoor seating request and that it was my mother's 60th birthday in the box (above this box it asked if we would like indoor or outdoor seating). Now, let me just say that, after working at a restaurant for many years I understand that it was just a request, never a guarantee. We were whisked right away to our outdoor table, loved the view and ordered our wine and starters when the owner came over and said that they had accommodated my written request but that I did not DO it correctly. I apparently didn't check a box for outdoor when making my reservation...? She then stated that we needed to be done by the next scheduled table turn or move!!! Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. I would have been fired for telling guests that at the fine dining establishment I had worked in.

Will not be back. It is sad that for the past few years my mom would look up at the patio on our trips to Tahoe City and say, "I'd love to eat there someday." And when I finally made it happen for her 60th we were treated this way.

Table was ready when arrived. Table offered was outdoors, as requested. The table was by rail at edge of patio with a fantastic view of Lake Tahoe. We have Gluten and Lactose food requirements and staff found way to find a food we liked which meet our needs. Water glasses filled regularly. Wine by glass offering were limited, but what we chose tasted good. Service excellent. We frequent this place often.

Can't say enough good things about Christy Hill. Incredible food, amazing views of Tahoe, very professional staff (Carsten was great!) and management. Went 2 nights in a row and both evenings were incredible. Only improvement could come from lowering the corkage fee which seems very high at $35/bottle. Otherwise 5 stars across the board!

Had been told by many it is the best in Tahoe and now know that to be true! Just outstanding in every aspect.
