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.

Excellent restaurant with incredible food. The staff was extremely polite, courteous, knowledgeable, and kind. It was a wonderful experience. The chocolate bread pudding is outstanding! Many 4 person tables along a wall of windows with incredible views of the lake. Good wine menu with reasonable prices. In our location we sat fairly close to other couples, who we had wonderful conversations with and shared wine. We will be back!

Very cute spot with gorgeous views! Great wine list selection and food pairing available for those willing to venture out of your comfort zone. Will definitely come back when we are in town again.

Christy Hill did not meet our expectation of fine dining. Fennel potato soup was excellent, but rest of the meal was substandard. -fingerling potatoes tasted reheated/warmed over. Tiny portion of few Brussel sprouts served were tasty but not at all worth the $8 price. Other dishes disappointing. Cocktails insignificant. Would not return.

One of the best resturants at Lake Tahoe. Great location, great happy hour. Fantaastic bartender BJ. Roasted Tomato soup best I ever had. Petrale Sole was terrific and presented artistically.

We have been dining at Christy Hill for some 25 years. It is always good. My wife had the scallops and ravioli which was exceptional. I had the best pork chop I have ever had.

My wife and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Christy Hill was the perfect choice. Great food, excellent service and the view of the Lake makes for a spectacular evening. Thanks Christy Hill for a memorable anniversary.

Had a great dinner. They got us in earlier than our reservation, which was nice and gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary that was amazing! Definitely recommend...great view of the lake.

View of the lake, quality of ingredients, and fairness of wine prices were all very good. Unfortunately, the cooking was a bit immature (overseasoned lamb, pasta with an odd vegetal quality, etc.). The biggest let-down was the service--our waiter was talking to another table when he threw our mains down... wine was almost always poured by us, etc.

A rather disappointing night for $250.

Great view and service. The food was excellent . My wife had the halibut and I had the pork chop. Both were great. Our server was very knowledgeable with the food suggestions and did not try to steer us to any one specific entree. When we return to Lake Tahoe, we will be back to this restaurant for sure.

We have eaten at Christy Hill numerous times, dating back to when they were in their original location in a quaint cottage in Squaw Valley. We have never been disappointed over the many years that we have enjoyed this outstanding restaurant. The food is outstanding, they have great outside deck seating overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe and excellent tables indoors that enjoy the same wonderful view.
The staff and wait personnel are professional and wonderfully attentive.

Great location, was in awe of the view for most of the meal. Food was a little overpriced, but to be expected in a vacation location like Lake Tahoe. Service was excellent. No liquor, just wine and beer, kind of a bummer. Worth checking out for the view alone.
