About the restaurant
A memorable dining experience awaits you as you enter the Christy Hill Restaurant in the center of Tahoe City. The restaurant sits on 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" and "North Lake Tahoe's Iconic Restaurants with World-Class Views" by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Executive Chef, Luis Vallin, focuses on sustainability and innovation, supporting local merchants and farmers. The thoughtful and playful menu pays homage to the tradition of Christy Hill while continuing to uplift and propel the cuisine and restaurant into exciting new territory.

We very much enjoyed our dinner here. It’s a cozy and inviting atmosphere. They were gracious with changing our reservation time. The staff was very nice. Our server, Sarah, knew the menu inside and out and made choosing everything a breeze. The ahi tuna appetizer was so delicious. Each dish was presented impeccably. I had scallops and my husband had salmon. I would love to dine here again if we come back to visit the area.

To celebrate our 37th anniversary, we felt the need for something new. We’ve wanted to go here for a long time. Kicking ourselves for waiting so long. Drinks, food and service were all WONDERFUL! And they sat us at a fantastic table looking out at the lake. We will be back often!
