We celebrated my husband’s birthday. The restaurant has been recommended by friends. The food, bartender, wait staff were beyond fabulous. We’ll certainly come back the next time in South Lake Tahoe.

Disappointed that a $75.00 charge is required for seating in a booth, most of which were empty the entire time we were there.

The food and service was top notch but we were seated in the back room with a large noisy party which made the experience less than enjoyable. When there are available tables in the main room, the back room should be a last resort.

We booked Ciera for our Anniversary dinner. Unfortunately, it was Thanksgiving. We have previously had dinner here 3 times, and it was my favorite restaurant in South Lake Tahoe. After this visit, it isn't. Granted, eating in a restaurant on a holiday isn't the smartest thing to do if you want a romantic anniversary dinner. We have always booked a private curtained booth, at no charge, first come, first served. Now, Ciera charges to book these booths. The cost on holidays, $100, on weekends, $75, and on a weeknight, $50. OK that did it for me.... one star marked down because of this!
Service was excellent! 5 stars for the waitstaff at Ciera.
We were going to have steaks for dinner, as Ciera is a steakhouse and their steaks are delicious. Then we saw the special $50 Thanksgiving menu. It looked delicious. We both ordered it.
I started out with a wonderful martini, 5 stars. We had wine with the meal, very good.
The seafood cocktail starter came out and was drenched with cocktail sauce. After the first 2 bites of shrimp and scallop, everything under it was swimming in red cocktail sauce.....you couldn't even taste the lobster and crab bits. What a waste, 1 star. The butternut squash soup was outstanding, creamy and delicious, 5 stars. Then the main course, my husband had the pheasant breast, I had the turkey. Both dishes were barely warm, 3 stars for the temperature of the food. My turkey plate was huge, I had 3 bites and had it packed to take home. My husbands pheasant was a very small portion, he ate it all, even though it was barely warm. I asked to take the apple torte home as we were full and ready to leave. Apple torte reheated at home excellent, 5 stars.
Throughout the meal the service couldn't have been better, we were offered a salad off the menu in place of the seafood cocktail, we declined and asked for a glass of wine instead.
We will go back to Ciera for steaks, however from our last experience, it is no longer my favorite

It was our anniversary, and this place did nothing short of amaze us. The food and ambiance was above what we could have ever imagined. The recommendations made by our server were superb, and we highly recommend. Will come back again for sure!!

Very disappointing, hard to call this is a steakhouse. Poor food quality. This is a has been restaurant; would not recommend. There are far better places to eat. Mediocre casino food is the best way to describe it

We have dined at Ciera numerous time and return because the food, service and ambiance are great. We were there with my sister and her husband 10/31 to celebrate closing on our new home. I had the rack of lamb. There were too many ribs for me to eat so I asked to take 5 of them home. I was looking forward to having them for dinner the next day. When we got home I found only 3 of the ribs in my Togo box. VERY disappointing. I tried calling the restaurant and the extension went to lost and found. I tried calling Mont Blue and all I got was a loop recording and no real person answered. The whole thing was incredibly frustrating. I suppose I can still recommend the Ciera just be sure to check your togo box before you leave the restaurant.

Our visit was on the recommendation of friends who visited the restaurant for their anniversary and had nothing but good things to say about Ciera. Since our anniversary was the following week, we decided to give it a try. We only have good things to say about this place! Food was fantastic and the staff was engaging and personable. A wonderful place for a special occasion! We will be back! We are so fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber locally!

Absolutely awful experience. We have been literally harassed by 3 different waiters who were competing for attention. Some were too friendly and their sense of humour was just inappropriate. One of them knocked a wine glass and didn’t bother to replace it. Ordered a side of fries and got a plate of oily ghastly wedges. We paid top London prices for a mediocre meal and would recommend anyone to dine elsewhere.

Our waiter was absolutely amazing! His service was outstanding.
The lobster was bland but they took it off the bill for us. The cheesecake was out of this work delicious.
We tipped our waiter very high for his professionalism and charm.
I would recommend it highly for the service.
But stick with the steak and not the seafood

The food and service were outstanding! Definitely will recommend/revisit. Only slight complaints were no fault of the restaurant. I accidentally gave them my last name instead of my husbands so they could not find our reservation upon check in. They did,however, accommodate us immediately and had us seated within minutes. Only other thing was that about halfway through our meal, two huge bachelor/bachelorette parties came in making the room extremely loud.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and the waiters and service were AMAZING. The food as delicious and even though we were absolutely stuffed they still brought us ON THE HOUSE chocolate cake and chocolate covered strawberries. We were seated in a private booth and weren’t bothered. We had the best experience dining here. Thank you for making our first wedding anniversary so special.

What a delightful dinner. Booth was great. Service was excellent. Gerald, our waiter, was attentive and personable...and had a nice sense of humor. The back staff were all very good as well. We felt taken care of, but it was not over done. Food was excellent. Lobster bisque and filet mignon for both of us. Right temperatures and cooked perfectly.
