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.

    I am a vegan and they really don’t have any vegan dishes on the menu. The closest thing is a pasta dish. They made me a very nice vegan dish with pretty much all the veggies that they probably had on hand it was excellent. My wife has a halibut and it was quite good she usually has the lamb when we go there and that’s very good also

    The team at Christy Hill does an excellent job of seamlessly working together to cover the dining room. The food was fantastic as always, the wine list is interesting and the view of the lake spectacular!! Christy Hill is our favorite spot in North Tahoe, and in the region in general!

    Beautiful location with a cozy atmosphere and amazing views of the lake at sunset. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. The chocolate croissant bread pudding was our favorite! The perfect location for a date night and enjoy a stroll on the pier after. Highly recommend!

    Hideously hot inside on a warm summer day! We specifically requested an outdoor table for our 6:15 reservation but we’re told on arrival it was not available. The outdoor area is shaded and the temp was 87. Indoors there were no fans and no airflow. It was still to hot to enjoy a meal inside at 8:15 when we departed. We were sweating and it really detracted from our dinner experience. The food and service were impeccable. We won’t return in the summer without a guarantee of an outdoor seat.

    MANY time diner. All was great, as usual, but prices are now MUCH higher including $10 for about 2 slices of bread. Really, Christy Hill? We spent more than $300 (for 4) and you charge $10 for a portion of bread that barely fed one person? Fix this! $87 for a steak is not inexpensive either. Halibut and duck were excellent. Be aware that if you want to sit outside you must request this in advance by entering it as a special request in OpenTable as the app does not present you with this option.

    Best service in ALL of Truckee Tahoe! Each dish was tantalizing & danced on our tongues. Consistently reinforcing why we LOVE them; ambiance like no other, right above the lake, outside or inside dining, and you like you are their only table.

    Been here before and the food is always great, but I highly recommend the tasting menu with the wine pairings. Service was friendly and attentive. All seating will offer a gorgeous view of the lake, but my husband and I were really happy about our table for two next to the window. Shout out to all the staff that made the night special.

    The service was a bit rough. The food was not as good as it used to be. We've been dining here for decades. The views of course were the best. With so many great dinning establishments, we may not be back. Beer and wine only, no cocktails.

    We had a great evening on the deck. The food was delicious. We enjoyed the amazing Alaskan Halibut and the Moroccan Lamb. Our only comment, the thick pork chop was cooked perfectly, but the meat was a slightly tough.

    Our party of five ladies sat outside on the beautiful deck overlooking Lake Tahoe. Our waiter was gracious, attentive, and handsome :). All the food was delicious - the tagliatelle pasta, the gnocchi, the scallops, in particular - just great. Our experience at Christy Hill was the best dinner we had on our vacation in Tahoe.
