We had Dinner two nights in a row at Wolf. We Love It!! Our waiters name is Ryan and we were lucky to have him both nights. We really appreciated the excellent service he gave us.. he recommended a lot of wonderful drinks and food. Another employee that really impressed us was Luke. Luke goes above and beyond servicing all of the customers. Our cocktails, food and our service were excellent again.

About the restaurant
Home of the Wet Woody ® and storybook sunsets, Riva Grill is Tahoe South’s premier lake front restaurant located in the Ski Run Marina. The 3,000 square foot deck overlooking Lake Tahoe comfortably seats 200 guests and is a dining experience that is second to none. Floor to ceiling windows in the two-story restaurant provide an equally epic view of the Sierras and Lake. Since 1998, visitors and locals alike have flocked to Riva for the best food and service in town. Try the bacon-wrapped filet and scampi with Point Reyes Bleu Cheese butter, the renown grilled or blackened fish tacos with apple-jicama slaw and micro cilantro or any of their home made wood fired pizzas, to name just a few. Additionally, a visit to Riva Grill would not be complete without trying their world famous Wet Woody ® signature cocktail. The rum and fruit juice blended drink will leave you with cold hands and a warm heart and certainly wanting one more.

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.

Always a lovely time at Edgewood and The Bistro. Service is impeccable. The food is top notch. I especially enjoyed sitting outside and enjoying the lake views and fresh mountain air. The Apple Pie which is served more as a "blossom" with a short bread cookie is not to be missed. Lots of hot, delicious apples with a cookie crust and ice cream! YUM!
