It was just mediocre.
The menu is... odd. A lot of Asian-fusion, Island-fusion, but you’re in Lake Tahoe. Not a shrimp or mahi for days. We ordered a chopped salad. There was nothing ‘chopped’ about it. They still serve lava-cake for dessert. It’s very dated, in ambience, in the menu and the fact that they want you to buy into their frequent dining club - is weird. High pressure sales has no place at a dinner.

The restaurant was good, however the patrons at the upscale restaurant treated it as if it was a sports bar. Load screaming and vulgar language. We were celebrating our 20 yr wedding anniversary and were constantly interrupted and subjected too vulgar language. Not what we were expecting from this restaurant and the bartender on duty was partaking in the noise and not showing respect to others that were seated within viscintity.

As always it’s an amazing experience to dine at Chart House! We celebrated the renewal of our vows and enjoyed the chocolate lava cake with a fabulous bottle of the Malbec! Thank you for a wonderful evening. We are looking forward to coming to celebrate our 30th anniversary in April 2019!

Great food and service but so noisy and has become so casual. We used to love going as a nicer restaurant and we were surprised by how casual people were dressed. Really not an intimate nice setting anymore. Would happily go with a group but again very loud and did not like the casual vibe that is invited.

We hebben er fijn gegeten maar de Amerikanen hebben haast om je de tent weer uit te krijgen.
De serveerster deed haar best maar om de vijf minuten komen vragen of alles in orde is, is overdreven en uiteindelijk zelfs irritant. Dit doet grote afbreuk aan het creatieve eten met mooie producten.

The food was good and the service was fine. The restuarnt had 4 drunk women sitting next to us. The staff did nothing about it. The rude ladies were asked by us and one other party of 3 to quiet down a little please. They did not quiet down and then were very rude on their way out and made a scene. We were hoping for a quiet and romantic celebration for my birthday dinner. It was a complete opposite of what we were hoping for. We spent $300.00 on dinner and drinks and it was more of a bar atmosphere.

Our waiter was First Class, professional and charming. Hostess was very pleasant and accommodating.
Our 1 complaint is the lighting, so dark we couldn't see the menu. Maybe the romantic atmosphere could be supplemented by small lights by the diners so they can have the full appreciation of the many yummy options offered.
All in all, a must do experience for fine dining in the Tahoe Area.

This restaurant overlooks Lake Tahoe and offers a wonderful sunset view of the lake and the mountains to the west of the lake. Our reservations were at 5:30 PM. We arrived early and the restaurant was almost full. There was no room to sit at the bar on this Thursday night. We were seated just after 5:30 with a wonderful view of the Lake and mountains. Our waiter was excellent. Our bottle of wine was great and the meal was also.

After going to the Chart House Lake Tahoe for the last 12 years on our anniversary, this was our last. The quality of the food, service and attention to hospitality details has declined steadily. I can only attribute this to the high cost of living in the Tahoe area. Lower wage employees such as bus personnel, servers, and prep staff can't make it on those wages. Hence, the additional work is placed on current employees. Everything has suffered. The food is mediocre at best. We recognize boxed food. Bar personnel don't know the difference between 'straight up' and 'over' drinks. There is no reason to wait 20 minutes for water at a table because the waitress has her hands full with all the other patrons. The Chart House was once the pride of the fleet at Lake Tahoe. Now it is just a leaky row boat circling the drain. We will spend $200 for an evening out elsewhere. We would recommend others do too.

Let me start by saying we came here Friday for happy hour at the bar and it was amazing. So amazing we made a reservation for Saturday night. We ordered the bourdon and chocolate old fashion, it comes with a skewered chocolate truffle. The server did not provide this when we asked he simple reply was oh yea I didn’t do that part, he then gets one and rolls it across the table. You would have thought he would have got it right with the second one, but no. Sitting across from a dirty tray of dishes that he just kept stacking up was not appealing. We pre ordered the lava cake, we got a very moist chocolate cake no lave. When we mentioned that maybe it went 5 minutes over he was very condescending in his reply if we love guest feedback. Again the bar tenders that we had the prior night were amazing! I would return and recommend but for the bar only.

The food tasted as if it had been cooked by a child learning to cook for the first time. It was bland, overcooked and uninteresting. A waste of money and time. The salad bar was dirty! The appetizers were also very bland. We have dined at the Chart House near San Diego and were surprised at this location. Don't bother. Go to Edgewood for a great dinner.

The food was bad
We had NY steak and filet minion
No taste at all and chewy

Side dishes were bad in particular the cream spinach. The bread crumbs on it killed everything for me and too much garlic

Had been to other chart houses but this one for the second time disappointed me

Our waitress Rebecca was so prompt and professional. Prime rib and filet mignon were very good. Excellent salads. But the asparagus and green beans were not so good. Didn’t even eat the beans.

Prices are high. $200 dinner for two with tip. And we ordered no drinks, just water. But Rebecca helped assemble our take-home packaging and that helped. She did a very good job.

They totally exceeded our expectation in every way. The service, food and ambiance were fantastic. We had a beautiful view of the sunset above the lake. We will definitely be back!!!

Very impressed with the service and overall ambiance of the place. Had an amazing view of the sunset over the lake. We went for our anniversary, and they made the effort of printing us out our own special menu that said “happy anniversary” on it and gave us a free dessert! Food was delicious and well-proportioned, and the drinks and wine were also yummy. Definitely would recommend for a special occasion :)
