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. 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.

We had the tasting menu (new adventure as it's been created a few days ago) and we loved it.
Food was really good, the pause in between the steps was great, good for digestion but not too long.
We'll come back next time we are in the area.

I love Christy Hill. The ambiance is amazing and the food is delicious. Of all the nicer restaurants on the north shore this is by far my favorite. I have been coming here for years with my family for nice meals and never have been disappointed. You will not go wrong here!

We were so impressed with our meal at Christy Hill. Made me wonder why we don't go there more often. Our server had a great sense of humor and the meal was incredible! The ceasar salad was the best ever and the fish was amazing, venison, desserts -- all awesome!

Well, this place is amazing. Best food I have ever had in Tahoe. Charcuterie board is next level, octopus small plate is incredible, I had the rabbit entree and my wife had the black cod. My wife says it’s one of the best meals of her life, and we’ve been to a pretty decent pile of Michelin starred establishments.

The location is incredible with amazing lake views, and it’s small and quiet. The wait staff is amazing as well.

We will go back again and again. And I’m sending all my friends there too.

We brought my mother in law to Christy Hill, our favorite restaurant in the Tahoe City area. Once again, it did not disappoint. The service, food and ambience was all superb. We started by sharing the grilled octopus, excellent. My wife had the Fresh Tagliatelle Pasta with Roasted Chicken, her mother had the Pan Roasted Gnocchi and I had the Pan Roasted Black Cod. Each was delicious. We finished with a cheese plate. Another wonderful dinner at Christy Hill.

The food was superior but the menu somewhat limited. Our waiter was a bit abrupt at the outset but warmed up. His service was excellent Nice to be there in the non-tourist season when the pace is relaxed. Great view of Lake Tahoe. We have eaten here before and the overall impression is always outstanding.

We love Christy Hill. It’s our special dining spot in Tahoe. We have been dining there for about six years now. Service is amazing, food is delicious, and the ambiance is nice and cozy. Not to mention the beautiful view! We don’t go to Tahoe that often, but when we do we make sure to stop by CR.

This Tahoe City restaurant has an eclectic choice of yummy food. We shared sashimi and Asian fried green beans for our appetizer. Our main shared dish was butternut squash ravioli, two generous portions that had already been split in the kitchen. Our able waiter helped us pick a delicious wine. Highly recommended!

Dinner for my birthday - everything was fabulous. The spices on the Lamb Tenderloin were excellent, and the chicken breast was tender and flavorful to the bone. Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding & Pumpkin Pot de Creme we’re exquisite. One of the best meals we’ve had, and with the full moon shining on Lake Tahoe-an evening we’ll not forget!
