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 views, food and service was outstanding. I do think the restaurant has gotten fairly pricey. As much as we like Christy Hill it will probably be a special occasion restaurant going forward.

    The food was excellent. Received great guidance from JB our waiter who was very attentive to all of our needs. Especially enjoyed the lamb and gnocchi. Christy Hill was recommended to us by our friends and it did not disappoint. Will be returning next time my wife and I are in Lake Tahoe.

    A perfect evening. We enjoyed an early dinner outside, overlooking the spellbinding Lake Tahoe. Outstanding and professional service provided by David. Creative well crafted dishes with surprising touches. Highlights: A shot glass of cold Cucumber and cashew soup. I could have bought a gallon of it. Refreshing and rich from the cashews. Hamachi appetizer Morel terrine Scallops atop pureed curried carrot. Panecotta with marinated strawberries in miso. What a memorable evening.

    Everything I hoped for! Was wanting to come here awhile and didn’t disappoint. Perfect for a high end date night. Food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful too. Also, the view is insane so that just makes the entire experience total chefs kiss. Only thing I wish they had was more non alcoholic options since me and hubby don’t drink! Other than that, wonderful and can’t wait to come back.
