Waitress was not very friendly, barely cracked a smile! Minimal interaction, I had mask on except when eating or drinking. I talked to waitress with mask on. Food was not as good than we had eaten in the past at this restaurant. Crab cakes were not as good, the chocolate lava cake was notbas good - no lava and not gooey in the middle!

Good location for beauty of Lake Tahoe. Despite them saying they were short staffed, we had excellent service. Enjoy appetizer, salad (Farmers Market salad my husband had looked awesome) and main course...and took Key Lime pie home. I had herb crusted salmon with mustard sauce and 3 potato garlic mashed which was excellent! High prices but I'd go back again for a nice dinner or special occasion.

I have eaten at Chart House restaurants for over 50 years and my most recent experience at the Lake Tahoe restaurant was superb and brought back many memories of great times at several restaurants. Great after all these years. 👍👍

The only negative I could think of was that the background music was not very relaxing right in the middle of this beautiful area. Not so much that it was too loud, just too upbeat and jazzy and not very melodic.

We were seated downstairs for our meal. Our reservations were made early enough to be seated upstairs in the restaurant. I know that Covid and Mother’s Day made for a crowd, but I assumed that a 4:00 reservation would at least get us upstairs in the restaurant. Our waitress was lovely and the food was good. We have lived here in Nevada for 44 years and try to visit the Chart House at least once a year. First time we’ve ever seen the downstairs!🙁 Not impressed with the downstairs!

Wonderful meal, food was done to perfection. Very noisy large group of diners adjacent to our table made the first half of our dining less enjoyable. Did not give 5 stars because the triple wine flight glasses were very water spotted: not what I would serve guests in my own home.

I was at Lake Tahoe for a week. My son text me and asked me to pick out my favorite GREAT restaurant in Lake Tahoe because he wanted to pay for both my business partner and my dinner to celebrate Mother's Day. We were heading home Sunday so I made the reservation for Saturday at The Chart House.

The service was excellent Our waiter was aware that my son wanted to pay for our dinner, drinks and desert. He was training a young lady and we enjoyed visiting with them. The food was excellent, the waiters were courteous and we had a great time.

My son loves to cook, so I sent him a picture of what I'd ordered on the menu and when my meal arrived, I took a picture of that and the lava cake and sent it to him. He was impressed. What a thoughtful thing for him to do. I felt so special!

Everything was great! The drinks were very tasty and well made. The food was a great temperature. I gave the food 3 stars mainly for the fact that I had planned to eat scallops and they had run out. Dessert was amazing and service was great as well. They honored my requests as we were celebrating a birthday.

We've been Chart House fans since the first one we dined at in Annapolis, MD. The Lake Tahoe restaurant easily lived up to the standard we have come to expect. The view of Lake Tahoe is awesome. The food was excellent, though I miss the salad bar (victim of COVID.) Natasha is an outstanding server and she even provided a history of the property. She pushed an already great experience over the top.

While the food was good quality, the service was lacking this time. We got our appetizer before we even had silverware or water, our waiter opened our wine yet we had no wine glasses on the table. We waited 10 minutes before our glasses arrived. We were never told the specials of the night, just felt service was lacking. We were seated in the lower level with several large groups - with noisy children. This was our 20th anniversary so a special night for us yet the atmosphere and service was definitely lacking. We have always loved Chart House but think we will be looking for a different place.

The Chart House had so much hype that I thought it would be out of this world. It was good, but not as phenomenal as we had expected. The salmon and ahi dishes were good, but the asparagus was mushy. We felt like the waitress pushed getting a glass of wine a little too hard. The view was amazing and it's worth a visit. However, we were a little underwhelmed.

As they say, with pandemic restrictions lifting, more people are going out and the Chart House was busy. I tried making a 6-6:30PM reservation 2 days ahead, but was only able to get 4:30 or 8:15PM, so be sure to make reservations way ahead!
We took the early reservation and was very pleased. The staff was very welcoming and happy to see us. Our server Karen had a big smile and was anxious to please! We ordered our beverages and perused the menu. We very much enjoyed the drinks that came!

We started with the Kim Chee Calamari and it was out of this world! Everyone in our party raved about it being the best calamari they had had ever had.

We had prime rib, salmon, and 2 Shrimp, Crab, Avocado + Mango Stacks as entrees. We combined it with Caesar salads and steamed asparagus. Everyone was delighted with their meals and couldn't say enough about how much they enjoyed them. Karen was very attentive but not over-bearing and did a wonderful job of meeting our needs.
We ended our evening by splitting a piece of Key Lime pie and that was the "icing on the cake".
It was truly delightful evening and we look forward to returning in the near future!

Consider a better background music that is more appropriate for finer dining. Even the wait staff shared their concerns. After all, do you think that the patrons who are spending top dollar really enjoy loud Beach Boys music?

Love the chart house ! Beautiful sunset view. The calamari was the best we’ve ever had. My favorite is the warm spinach salad and my fiancé prime rib was yummy. If you’re looking for a non-alcohol drink try the honey cucumber . First time having clam chowder there tons of clams. Can’t say enough about our waitress Chelsea. She was very sweet ,attentive ,and answered all of her questions

Quality of the food and the service were excellent as usual. I was disappointed in the portion size of my Halibut for the price charged. $42 seems quite high for what was probably about 5 oz of fish.

Three out of four dinners were excellent. I chose the 3 shrimp special and was disappointed. More with my choice than with the dinner. I will go again. I'm sure everyone says it but the view is worth the price of admission.
