The Chart House was very expensive and the quality of the food very poor. We ordered the prime rib and was not good at all.

Happened to have had bad luck. However, the staff and the restaurant stepped up and recovered.

The normal at the ChartHouse is excellent food, service, and location.

We have eaten here at least a dozen times and every meal but one (takeout, their food does not travel well) was outstanding. Great view, nice dining room and attentive staff. It is expensive but worth it, probably the best high-end restaurant in the Tahoe basin.

We celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary in our favorite restaurant. We were happy to dine-in instead of doing a carry-out. The service was wonderful and the food was exceptional despite having to experience the “new” normal of being in public during the pandemic.

Had an amazing dinner with views of Lake Tahoe. Lobster and prime rib. It was our first dinner out since the shutdown. The staff was very helpful and made us feel very comfortable. It has been a favorite spot of ours in the past and we are so glad that it is up and running again. Kudos to the waiters and waitresses who have to go the extra mile for the customers during this trying time.

This is our favorite restaurant but this time my husband's filet was terrible. We chalked it up to them being closed for a couple of months due to the pandemic and didn't send it back. Hopefully, next time it will be better. If not, we will say something this time. All the other food and drink were great as was the service and ambiance. It did seem like the prices increased since last fall but I couldn't pinpoint it.

The prime rib was tasty, but tough, and there was no cap, which is my favorite part :(

We showed up early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Doug, our server, was knowledgeable about menu items, very professional and has a great sense of humor. The Chart House employees we saw or met seemed happy to be there. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere restful. The food was DELICIOUS!

Great experience after a long-awaited return! Wondered how the restaurant changes would be...pleasantly surprised. Hand sanitizer at the front door, reception and wait staff were all decked out with masks and gloves and seating was sufficiently spaced apart. Menu had some new items as well as the familiar, bar service was exceptional, food was delivered timely and it was all delicious. It was clear everyone was doing his/her best to make the experience a pleasant one. We ordered the New England clam chowder, chopped and caesar salads, mahi mahi and the captain's cut prime rib. After several months away, it was a true delight to enjoy a really good meal!

Initially we were concerned with the sign which asked diners to limit their time dining to approximately 1 hour so that everyone who had a reservation would have adequate time to spend. We did our best (and asked periodically if we needed to hurry along) but in the end, we spent 2 hours enjoying cocktails, appetizers, entrees and a coffee...and no one was waiting to be seated!

After weeks in quarantine we decided to drive from Sacramento to Zephyr Cove for a date night. It was worth the 4 hour round trip by a long shot. The food was incredible and our server Megan was attentive and so sweet. Highly recommend!

I sincerely just love Chart House Tahoe. They have seriously never disappointed me, I mean like, ever. This time maybe because of not being able to go out for so long now, everything just seemed that much better, but the staff is always superb, and the food is always top notch exquisite, and the views of Lake Tahoe are amazing, and the atmosphere inside the Chart House are well appointed, and nicely decorated, and as always, very clean. They have always earned an A+++++++++ on every checkbox I can think of.

Dining at the Chart House after so many weeks on lockdown was lovely. They have done a very good job at setting up the dining tables so everyone is socially distanced but also each dining table still has lovely views of Tahoe. Each member of staff was wearing a mask and gloves and they did a very good job a making you feel welcome while keeping everyone safe. Well done Chart House and thank you!

We celebrate family dinners at the Chart House and had another great one.
Appetizers (octopus, snails, and crab cakes) were tasty!
Meals were great except for baked potatoes served with prime rib. They seemed a little pre-prepared.

They customize menus with the birthday boy's name and date at the top.

Highly recommend.

We visited for the first time as part of our 35th anniversary getaway to Lake Tahoe. The setting was great particularly for a booking around sunset, which was spectacular. Other than that, the rest was average at best. We had the Wild Tuna appetizer which was the best part of the meal. My wife and I both had the scallops and shrimp dish which was overall not very good - couscous was dry and stuck together, shrimp was dry and overcooked. I also had the salad bar, which was fine but nothing above an average fast casual salad bar. The service too was average at best. We sat for almost 30 minutes with only water, waiting on drinks and bread. The rest of the service was really slow and a couple of times requests were forgotten or long in coming (another 10 minute wait to get water refilled during dinner). While not being rude, the service was just very slow and not attentive. Overall not a good value for the prices. Given the other local choices we will not be back.

The food was fantastic and our server was really nice. The only negative was that there did not seem to be servers on the floor so we had long periods waiting for our water, etc. It is an attractive restaurant. I believe that sunsets are beautiful there. Let your server know at least 30 minutes before the end of meal that you want the lava cake. And, trust me, you do want the lava cake—so good.
