Fredrick's Fusion Bistro
Dinner: Tuesday - Saturday: 5:00PM - 9:30PM
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.
Truly enjoyed our dinner here, first night in town. The food was excellent, service friendly. Enjoyed it enough to repeat a second night.
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.
Enjoyable evening, small but interesting wine list, attentive service, attractively presented and tasty food in an unpretentious setting. Highlight was beignets with a sweet mocha dip backed with a delightful mocha martini. Would unhesitatingly repeat the experience.
Everyone is so lovely & the food is outstanding!!!
Our favorite place.
Nice dinner with granddaughter and friend who love sushi . . . so this place was a hit on food. Service could have been better.
Food as usual was great service was very slow dinner took 2 hours too long
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.
This restaurant was a gem! The sushi was fantastic, server was super friendly, and atmosphere very warm.
I would def recommend, and go back!
My favorite restaurant in No. Lake Tahoe. Jamie and Ashley are wonderful servers, thank you for such a nice meal. Food is very consistent, always tasty, mouthwatering.and the presentation beautiful. So appreciate an outstanding meal.
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.
great service--great food--Jamie was super!
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.
They didn’t have a table for almost an hour but we put two tables together and made it work. Fun restaurant, good sushi and lobster pops
Excellent service. They don't have a kids menu but will make any of their food to your kids liking. Overall great experience. Will visit again.....
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.
Wow the chef was so accommodating to our needs and the food was AMaZING! The scallops appetizer has a little spice and was delicious. They were cooked perfectly! My Caesar salad was the best I’ve had in incline village! Props to the chef! We will be back tomorrow again for dinner thanks
Food never disappoints, they ran out of hamachi but made up for it by adding additional salmon and tuna, Bartender Ashley was very kind and helpful even tho fairly new, thanks Ashley!
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.
Every time we are in Northern part of Lake Tahoe we find our way to this incredible surprise. Great food preparation great presentation
Scallops were under cooked, the sushi not fresh, the stew was nothing but peanut sauce, but our service was great. Paid 160 dollars and didn't touch the food. By far the worst food I've ever had
If you're in Incline Village or on the North Shore, go to Fredrick's! You will not be disappointed. This is run by local people, its open most of the year, and it needs your support to keep that delicious fusion food coming.
We loved the menu and waitress was amazing. Easy to get to and creative menu.
We verysimply liked nothing about it. The food was mediocre in three cases and actually bad in a fourth. The waitress was knowledgeable but way too gabby. It was a disappointing experience. On the other hand, we appear to be in the minority, as most reviewers seemed to like it. But we definitely won't be back.
Found on Open Table. Small and obviously known by the locals. Each dish was delicious. One waitress who waited on a dozen tables but with efficiency, attentiveness and cheerfulness. SO if you are in a hurry to eat and go, don't bother. If you are content to wait, converse and enjoy the food and wine and have memories of a fine meal, come here. A varied menu. Out of the ordinary and obviously prepared with expertise and care. On our list for next year.
Been to Fredricks and have never been disappointed. We like to go to the Happy Hour and sample all the half-price appetizers on the menu. The duck egg rolls were killer (and I don't really care for duck), the scallops were perfectly prepared and the ahi wontons are fantastic as are the half-dozen or so sushi rolls on the menu. Highly recommended.
The food was outstanding. The restaurant had some issues that night (which could not be helped) so our dinner took 21/2 hrs. The waitress was wonderful and very accommodating. She gave us 2 free drinks, along with an appetizer and no corkage fee. I would def go again because they did the best they could with an unfortunate situation.
It was fine...nothing special....
They were understaffed, but the waitress was Very good and did beyond what was expected.
Wonderful dining experience! Fabulous, spirited waitress who made the evening all that much better. Food was fantastic. We will be back!!
Either they don't have air conditioning or it wasn't working the evening we were there. A bit warm.
The Staff was very polite and friendly. Jamie was our server and she could not have been nicer. Over all the food and service were average. The Coffin sandwich was hard, very crusty and fairly dry. We thought the meal was a little pricey for what we got served to drink and eat.
Nice find - good food great service
