Chart House Restaurant - Lake Tahoe
Book your next event with us
Wow is all I can say, & in a VERY good way! I booked this restaurant on Open Table before we flew in from Texas. I took my husband to South Lake Tahoe for his birthday & wanted to make sure he had an amazing dinner to celebrate. This place was a 10 out of 10. The service, the food, the drinks, the dessert, EVERYTHING! They even gave my husband a birthday card & a specialized menu stating happy birthday at the top! My husband ordered the prime rib & said it was one of the best he had ever had. I ordered the paneed chicken that came with mashed potatoes & asparagus. It was phenomenal. I definitely recommend this restaurant. We sat by the window and had an amazing view as well!
This was my second visit. It was a great experience. Our waitress was on target, the food was amazing and I highly recommend the Calamari and Mac Nut Mahi dish. The salad bar was just as tasty. Nice lively environment with a lot of large parties dining. We had a spectacular view of the lake. It was very cozy and romantic. This is a must dining experience.
Delicious dinner (get the lava cake!) and awesome service. Out go-to dinner in Lake Tahoe
I hoped for a excellent meal but the Halibut was the worst I have ever had.
Thank you so much for everything my family and I had a fabulous night!
My boyfriend and I were on a 2 day quick getaway from the Bay Area that we like to do a couple times a year. A nice dinner is always involved and considering we have a Landry's member card we decided on Chart House for this trip. The wine menu was super reasonable so we ordered a bottle of Cab Franc and 2 steaks and starters. Everything came out cooked to perfection and timed perfectly as well. We had a really great experience and will definitely be back. I don't remember our server's name but she was wonderful!
Great experience. Professional staff. Great value.
Beautiful views and good food selection. Great salad bar!
As always the South Lake Tahoe Chart House delivers a creative tasty menu with amazing views of the lake. I would recommend making reservations during the sunset.
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday, and we were both pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic. But mainly it was our service. We had a very friendly sweet lady named Kate as our server and she was above and beyond what you would expect from a server even in a fine dining establishment. My girlfriend and I are both culinary arts majors and have been in and around the industry from a young age and quite frankly we talk about it all the time. but the quality of service in the hospitality industry has greatly decreased over the years to the point were we never expect much anymore but we were both completely blown away by her outstanding service. 10/10 would most definitely recommend. and will most definitely be back.
We come here often but the experience this lay time was not up to par. Food was not that good, halibut was over cooked and dry. Not impressed... may need to change it up and go to the bistro at Edgewood instead.
Nice setting with good food. Have never been disappointed dining there.
Delicious dinner, beautiful setting, attentive waiter.
Very enjoyable dinner date. Great food and service. Beautiful view.
We always have good service and great food when we go there. When we have a birthday or special occasion we go to Chart House.
Great place. Would recommend for any occasion. View of Lake Tahoe is amazing. Get there before the sun goes down. Food and service is amazing!
I'm still salivating from the prime rib- melts in your mouth excellence!
Chart House was amazing as always, even with blizzard like conditions outside.
Our service was very disappointing and I've read this before with the Chart House. We had to ask for more water then wait longer than we should have. My son asked for a second soda and it took 25 minutes to get it. I was told broccoli came with my meal, I never saw it on the plate. An extra $4 charge was added to my bill at the end and I have no idea why. We watched a single gentleman directly beside us get excellent service with the same server.
Our food was excellent!
To be honest we were somewhat put off by our waiter. He has been there sometime, but I felt like, to some degree, I was at a used car dealership. He was far too glib and I felt like he was around our table way too much. Obviously he was serving the people at the table next to us as well so the reasons for his presence are clear.
However, what I really didn’t care for was the “pitch” he gave for the restaurant chain. The reasons for the pitch are self evident. I just found it to be off-putting. I could care less about being sold something at a meal.
Holiday family gathering.
Wonderful place for a birthday with friends!
Terrible service with long delays on drinks. Manager visited the table after guests complained, but only asked if the food was delicious and "hoped" we had a great rest of the night.
We were seated immediately at a nice window seat overlooking some uplit trees.I would say the best things about this restaurant were the service, tasty food and portion size. Everything was prepared extremely well- juicy fish with just the right amount of spicing, special dessert which was expertly prepared. The only small critique I have was that the table seated next to us was rather loud and distracting- not because they were, but because of the sound in the room. Other than that, it was a great evening and well worth the expense.
Great dinner with my family. Great seafood! Waitress was fantastic!
Chart house is usually my favorite restaurant. But, the service at this location on this date was horrible. It took 2 hours for our party of 4 to be served our meal and they ran out of mixed vegetables and their signature dessert, mud pie. Very disappointing.
My family and I dined have dined at the Chart House multiple times over the years. We like the food, the ambiance and the service but we have a very, very large pet peeve: the delay in seating reserved tables.
The issue is that when we show up on time, we ALWAYS have to wait another 10 to 15 minutes on average to be seated. Given that a) the restaurant called to confirm our attendance that afternoon, b) we were on time and c) I am a Landry Select Club member, we find this situation extremely annoying. In our view, there is zero excuse for a high end restaurant not to seat reserved tables immediately, if guests show up on time. This is part of the service and frankly respect for customers and their time that is integral to the overall experience. We always start irritated, and then remember the good parts of the restaurant.
If Chart House could cure this problem and seat people immediately, I would rate them a 5/5 not a 4/5, and frankly, we would visit much more often.
We've been to this Chart House numerous times and have always loved it! But we were very disappointed in the quality of the food we ordered this time on New Year's Eve. I ordered the prime rib medium and it was so rare that I could barely eat it. I normally would have told our server but it took her at least 10 minutes to come back to us and by that time, I started eating around the edges where it was a little more cooked.
Also, we didn't appreciate our server pushing us to buy a more expensive wine (twice as much) as the one we picked (surprisingly, the less expensive one was out of stock) and when my wife asked the server her opinion of a couple of different fish or seafood entrees, she always picked the most expensive one but didn't offer why she liked that entrée over the others.
We thought there would be something special planned for New Year's Eve at the Chart House and that was why our reservation was made for 10:30 PM, but there was nothing except at 11:45, we were told that if we stick around, there would be champagne (not offered complimentary, so we weren't sure how much extra that would be). We declined because we were about to leave and as soon as we got out of the door, it was locked by someone who looked like a manager.
So much for what we thought would be a great New Year's Eve night at the Chart House!
Everything was fantastic. We had great food and great service.
We always go to Chart House for special occasions. And any time we went a good meal.
We get very excited to have dinner here and have been coming back for more then a decade!
Always a great time. Always great food. Always great Service (Doug).
Food cold. They tried to sell a membership and proudly announced that Bubba Gump was part of the chain.
I was trying to impress guests . Come on guys.
Server and hosts very nice .
Group of 6 window seat, had beer/water then 4 apps - broshetta tray, Brussels sprout, ahitacos wild with taco tray, calamari and salad bar.... then we were serviced our meritage an then 5 fish meals with add-ons but (the way to go) plus a NY then a couple of yummy desserts. My food was a great and exceeded! Service was frequently and we were ally taken care of
We ate here as a “Near the End Of The Year” night out. The food was fantastic and the service was incredible, it was not inexpensive, but very fair pricing, the sayings “you get what you pay for” applies very well.
Our first time at a Chart House. We were pleasantly surprised! Our server, Trish, was very knowledgable, attentive and professional. She made good recommendations and was lovely to chat with. The food was AMAZING. We'll be new regulars!
We drive from Portland Oregon 3x a year for a break and this is always our first stop. Amazing food, service, ambiance. Kid friendly and high end with casual comfort.
Excellent waiter, Mathew. Very attentive and great tableside banter!
Great as always.
The location and views can’t be beat and the restaurant is nice inside. The service was excellent (although our server was very friendly and professional it was hard to miss the hard sell other servers were giving to tables around us — from appetizers and dessert to the weird, out of place dining points program for the low low price of $25). The food is very expensive with steak house prices for generally bland food. My swordfish was so over cooked I had to send it back which I rarely do. They brought another which was grilled better and surprised me by charging me for it. Overall this restaurant has to decide what it is: fine dining in which case they need to ditch the salad bar and refine the menu and preparation, or a chain restaurant that can get away with high prices for tourists who will never return. The reputation and popularity of this restaurant may keep it going like this for some time but it’s too bad it’s not better.
