Every dish was severed cool - this includes our dessert. We sent the first one back but just dealt with the others. I don't think we'll be back

My steak was so dry. Couldn’t eat it. They charged us for two shrimp cocktails that they had ran out of. The charge for those were $70.00 on our bill. Karen and Corrine, our waiters were excellent. The chocolate lava cake was wonderful. Just didn’t care for the steaks at all. Be sure and check your bill!!!

The kimchee calamari was amazing! Our meals were great as well. The peanut sauce on the Mahi was a little off for my taste. The mango sticky rice and Asia. Green beans were very good. Service was 4 stars all the way around. The lava cake is a must! The views and ambiance were perfect! Would come back when in Tahoe.

We went on February 16 for a late Valentines Day dinner. We had the Valentines Day special. The food was great and our waitress was very sweet. The view of Lake Tahoe is gorgeous from the restaurant. We highly recommend the Chart House and will definitely be going back.

Our waiter was very nice, however was not timely with drinks and wine. He would take our order then be gone for quite some time, then wait on another table.

Our overall experience was amazing as usual and we look forward to another wonderful evening at The Chart House South Lake Tahoe.

This spot is definitely my all time favorite. My wife and I do like to try new places, but when you seriously just want the best, and know you will have the best dining experience, it’s Chart House for sure. 5 stars literally every visit.

Made reservations for Valentines dinner and was so pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, ambience was great but what made the night was our server. Allie was just made our evening. Attentive, fun and precise, a true joy to be in her section.

We have been going to the Chart House for years. This visit for appetizers we enjoyed the Mediterranean Hummus and Coconut Crunchy Shrimp. Presentation on both was beautiful. We are meat eaters and have never been disappointed in the quality of the beef -- perfectly prepared and tender. Only problem? We are usually too full for dessert!

Our waitress was exceptional -- attentive and very personable. Thanks for another great experience.

Out of all the places that we dined while in Lake Tahoe, the Chart House was clearly our favorite... and everyone else’s as well... as the restaurant was packed by 5:15 with an hour and 30 min wait for a table without a reservation. The food, ambience and service were fabulous. Our server Chelsea clearly went out of her way to make our dining experience absolutely perfect. We Highly recommend the Chart House for a memorable dining experience!

Prime rib and Filet were awful !! Nice cut of Prime rib but chewy and no flavor on a signature offering.
Filet had no taste and chewy.
Our openly gay waiter brought out the wrong drink, did not allow me to order dinner, before I stopped him, and forgot the birthday guest of honors Lobster Bisque soup.
Although the GM provided discounts, it was not the top quality experience we had hoped for on my brothers birthday.
Come on Chart house....

Although I would still recommend the Chart House for the location and food, I was disappointed in a few things. We ordered a salad and informed the waitress that 2 of the people at the table were going to split it. In most restaurants of this quality, they would have brought the salad out split between 2 plates. Unfortunately, this was all on one plate and it was difficult to split - and messy. There was also oldies music playing - which while fun, was not the background sound one would expect at this type of facility.

Our waiter - Doug - was stellar. Funny, informed on the menu and wine, and a pleasure to spend the evening with. Makes all the difference in the experience. The Thai shrimp was pretty good as well.

Our advance reservation noted Birthday celebration. It was a nice touch for the menus to have Happy Birthday at the top and they were for us to take home. The food and service was wonderful and would recommend The Chart House to everyone when visiting the area. We live in Reno and it is still a nice treat to be able to spend the weekend in Lake Tahoe and know we will have a great dinner at the Chart House to top off the weekend.

We came here as our night out on a friends ski trip. We had one baby with us and had a whole section to ourselves. The server was very tentative, polite and good hearted.

Would definitely recommend for a nice dinner out!

Friday night was super busy and crowded so service was slow and my food only warm, mashed potatoes were cold. It was crazy busy so I didnt complain. Took 30 min to get our bill. Probably won't go on a Friday night again.

We were seated near the window, so got to see the sunset. We all ate something different and each enjoyed our meal, server and the ambience. The men at our table ordered some chocolate dessert and said it was delicious! We would definitely eat there again!

Had a reservation. They gave us the table right next to the hostess desk. It was very loud and noisy. We asked to be moved. There were plenty of tables available. They said we couldn’t move because the others had reservations. We said we had a reservation also and they said but they can’t reserve a particular table. So talking out of both sides of their mouth. We went to the Bistro instead at Edgewood which was excellent. We won’t be back to the chart house.

Wonderful food, excellent wine list, amazing views! We had a special treat because the restaurant is above the lake enough that the fog-covered lake at sunset was a rare and special treat!

Definitely worth going and I will be back!
