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.

We had a little bit of a wait for choosing outdoor dining so we decided to seat inside. Was taken upstairs for a great view. Facilities look somewhat dated, but everything is still very nice. The server was wonderful. The dinner (surf& turf) was on par - And we are very particular. Overall, a very nice evening. You should know that attire in this facility ranges from ‘just off the boat’ to ‘after five’ so I guess pretty much anything goes.  we would return.

Hal was an excellent waiter! Really happy he was our waiter. The prime rib and the truffle mushroom ravioli were wonderful! The downside was the menu mentioned carrots with the prime rib. My husband and I each got 1 tiny carrot on our plates. Kind of disappointing considering what we were paying for each entree.

Amazing experience from beginning to end. Food, drink, ambience - all excellent. From Monica’s warm greeting to John’s insights on menu items to Edgar’s assistance - a delicious and memorable dinner. Our party had the onion soup and avocado caprese salad as starters - flavorful and a great way to begin our meal. Our entrees were the lamb and pork - tender, delicious, amazing sauces, and portions were ample (hello leftovers). We added a side of potatoes to round out our meal. As much as we wanted to have dessert, we left no room. Highly recommend Ciera - the food, people, ambience - all worth a special dinner! I look forward to my next dinner at Ciera. Thank you to the whole team.

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.

True elegance of an alpine chateau with terraced levels offering every table an amphitheater view of Lake Tahoe and the Sierras most breathtaking vistas. The contemporary menu marries fresh modern cuisine that embraces the season and region. Mere feet from water’s edge, the dining room’s sweeping wooden archways and vaulted ceilings sets the stage for the spectacle of the flamed sunsets as they paint the skies.

Because of the intimate nature of the Edgewood Restaurant, the maximum party size for indoor dining is 6. We also cannot split tables larger than 6. Multiple reservations made by the same party will not be honored.

My husband and I dined here for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We are not steak house goers, and for this being our first experience, wow what a choice. The food was phenomenal, the ambiance is romantic, and the service was 5 star. Taylor, our waitress, was so kind and generous. Erin, the manager came over to congratulate us on our 10 year. We even received complimentary drinks. We can’t wait to come back and make it a more regular dinner spot. 10/10 recommend!
