This is my husband’s favorite restaurant in town. I am very happy that the music and noise level was on the quieter side this trip in. It’s usually too loud for us to even hear each other. Thank you for making Valentine’s Day special for us. :)

Ashley is fabulous, so lucky you have her. She is the bartender and served the entire restaurant. I normally get the sashimi but will think twice next time. It was cut paper thin and not presented as normal. Ashley totally understood and graciously comped is our dessert; very classy, thank you Ashley!

We’ve been here before twice and had much better experience. This time hike the one and only waiter was very nice as was the one bartender they were much too short staffed for the number of people that all came n within a period of a half hour. They need at least one more person. As a result several dishes while they would have been delicious were served like warm. This was very unsatisfactory on a couple of the dishes one a main course which we had before that was excellent.

Consistently great food. Can be noisy, but that's part of its charm, feels like a little piece of Europe.
Especially cozy in wintertime. One of our Tahoe favorites.

Hoping for a much better experience here given the prices. The filets we ordered were not very tasty and side dishes as well were bland. Somehow our orders were not entered with our kids orders so came out 45min after, which didn't help the experience.

our dining experience at Frederic's has always been great. Good food and service. However, this past Saturday Sept 15th there was only one waiter. He was hustling and got our food to us. We asked about dessert and he said the kitchen was really backed up and it might take 2 hours to wait for dessert, he suggested we go next door to Bites. We asked to see the dessert menu anyway, but then decided to leave instead. We thought a 2 hour wait was a bit too much. Have been here numerous times and never experienced anything negative before.

My mistake for trying sushi in Incline Village and expecting it to be near the quality of Sushi in Los Angeles. Ahi Tartare was tasteless with poor quality tuna and the scallops were nearly inedible. The only saving grace was a very pleasant waitress and bartender.

We enjoyed our food. My wife had salmon and I had a Dragon Roll. We started with a very nice scallop appetizer. The server was very good. The restaurant was not really busy, but for some reason the time between our appetizer and our entrees was excessive. We were on vacation so we really did not mind, however, when the bill came the server had comped one of our wines for being patient and "working with them," which I guess is their term for not complaining. Anyway, if you are looking for something different in Incline Village, FredRicks Fusion is worth a try.

Fredrick’s has been around Incline Village for a long time. It has a small but varied menu including sushi. The salmon, short rib and firecracker chicken are always good. This time, the duck egg roll was dry, but the cauliflower soup was enjoyed. The restaurant is small and reservations are recommended for the weekend or during local busy seasons. The staff is friendly and attentive.

Fredrick’s consistently delivers a superb dining experience in a cozy, friendly setting. The menu isn’t large but what is served is delicious with great presentation and attentive service. We love the lettuce wraps and cauliflower soup to start. The short rib and salmon entrees are my favorites and my wife enjoys the firecracker chicken. It’s our favorite dinner house in Incline Village.

We picked a night where there was only one person waiting tables, tending bar, in short doing everything "out front". We were told that there was only one person working in the kitchen. Further, we were told that we were the only reservation that night; the other 10 - 15 groups were all locals.
The server/bar tender was much more interested in socializing with the locals than waiting on us. As a result a meal of salad, entree and dessert lasted about 3 hours. The food itself was "uneven' - - some items very good; the salmon over cooked and dry. I am sure it was hard for the one kitchen employee to keep track of everything.
I realize that this review is 180 degrees from almost everything else written about Frederick's and is equally 180 degrees from the hundred or so Open Tables reviews I have left, but the night was what it was. We have been in the North Lake Tahoe area for a week and have had many excellent meals. With many good choices in the area I will not be going back to Frederick's.

The only negative about this restaurant is that there are virtually no acoustics, making the noise level when we visited unpleasant. It was very difficult to have any type of sustained conversation. We would only recommend going there with a caveat about the noise.

Our second visit. We came back because of our first. The dishes are unique. The lobster dog on a stick was my favorite this time with a great tomatillo sauce.

Smoked salmon pate excellent.

Miso soup excellent.

I had the seafood hot pot.

Of course there was Shannon to bring it all together.

Be back this summer.

Michelin 1 Star - I predict. The freshest cuisine, excellent presentation, creative and while not trendy, it was a WOW! experience. We are foodies and also always looking for quality and taste.

If you have that AND excellent, personable, experienced servers then you will enjoy this sweet, cozy place in a tiny shopping center near the Lake. We have NEVER had better sashimi, even in very expensive sushi restaurants. And the price was unbelievable, less than half what other quality spots charge. Flown in fresh, always. So melt-in-your mouth delicious, flavorful, bountiful servings and little touches, such as super-thin slices of lemon added to the presentation on a smooth wooden board.

Their sushi rolls are original. Ours had crunch and savory, so buttery was the fish and a zing inside. If you took a macro photo of just one piece you'd want to enlarge it, print it and frame it for your wall. Perfect combination of nature meets creativity. The cauliflower soup was to rave for because it was comfort food and so sweet, with a crunch of tiny fried buds to make you smile.

Ah, but the sautéed spinach was a yum-yum surprise with every bite, accompanied by a bed of light fresh creamy sauce to balance the acidity. I prefer hot sake but this place specializes in cold sake and you'll find the server very knowledgeable.

All I can say is that I would drive an hour to eat here again and will tell everyone I know that this place, a hidden gem with a little fireplace to warm you on a cool Tahoe evening, to be on my go-to restaurant list. If this restaurant were in NY or SF or LA, there would be lines outside. Trust me, it's that good.

Our party of 7 found this cozy local restaurant serendipitously, but we were all quite pleased by the creative way chef fused Asian flavors with classic cuisine to produce uniquely delicious seasonal appetizers and entrees, that were splendidly satisfying. Portion size was on the small side, but we left satisfied nonetheless. A local gem that we will visit again.

Staff was friendly, but not on it with the water (our litmus test for good service). It's in a small event room for the hotel, which was odd. The pictures of food on open table looked amazing, but the execution of the food was poor, except the calamari (That was the best thing we ordered). The crispy pork belly was overcooked (So sad, I was so looking forward to it). How you can overcook Halibut is beyond me, but it was overcooked. Definitely a disappointment.

This is one of our best dining experiences of 2017. The service was prompt, courteous and fun in just the right balance. The food was simply excellent. We both had seafood, and it was tasty, had just the right texture, was properly seasoned, and was just plain fun. We've already recommended Fredrick's Fusion to friends who go to Tahoe, and we will certainly be back.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Incline but usually the noise level is unbearable which it was not on this evening as it was the low season between the summer and winter seasons. The food is always excellent with the exception of the Sushi which is quite average but still tasty. The sake choices were good while not extensive and very tasty as well. The staff help was very friendly and helpful. Always look forward to going back for the lobster dogs, tuna poke and a very original take on miso soup.
