Our dinning experience at the Chart House exceeded our expectations from start to finish.

Appetizers

Charred Octopus-excellent, great flavor

Kim Chee Calamari-excellent, great flavor, calamari cooked expertly

Lobster Bisque-besides the scallops mentioned below, this was one of the stars of the meal. I ordered a cup, after tasting I shared (reluctantly) with my family and we ordered another

Entrees

Garlic Soy Shrimp and Scallops-never have had scallops cooked so perfectly. Portion size was good

Savory Shrimp Pasta-great flavor, shrimp were cooked spot on. Large portion size

Black and Blue Salmon-given the name of the dish I expected the salmon to be blackened. While it was not, the flavor and flakiness of the salmon did not disappoint. Portion size was good

Prime Rib (Chart House Cut)-ordered medium-well (not how I would order, but I wasn’t eating it). Delivered as ordered, great taste good portion size

Dessert
Chocolate lava cake - I didn’t eat much because when it hit the table it didn’t last long. I guess it must have been good.

Service timing was spot on.

Wonderful food and service! Our server, Eddy, was very pleasant and efficient. The steaks were cooked as ordered, tender, flavorful, and the side of mushrooms was the perfect addition. We finished our meal off with the scrumptious lava cake — what a perfect ending to an awesome dining experience! We would highly recommend the Chart House to anyone!

We always looked forward to the exceptional salad bar at the Chart House, Lake Tahoe. However, this time the salad bar was fair at best. The numerous items of choice usually there were limited to a few select items. The main meal was also not up to standard for the prices they now charge. I had the teriyaki steak which was very, very dry. My wife had the shrimp with noodles which amounted to 3 shrimp, one of which was about a 3rd of a shrimp and deformed. Not very impressed whatsoever with this trip to the Chart House.

Food was delicious - signature prime rib tender and cooked to perfection. Spinach salad and crab cake as appetizer were both wonderful. We thought the wine list was excellent. Now for the view - window table overlooked Lake Tahoe as sun was setting. Beautiful, magical, awe inspiring.

Instead of cataloging the numerous occasions of snippy, unfriendly, socially awkward service, mediocre view (it's better from the gondola ride) and okay food (salmon was dry), I will just say, find something else closer to the town of south lake Tahoe which has easier and more available parking and better and friendlier customer service. I'm sorry to be so harsh, but over $150 for 2 and we only had 2 drinks total...its the level of service which makes it either worth it or not...the Tahoe chart house wasn't worth it.

We enjoyed the window table, and the waitress was very friendly, but my lobster was over cooked and overall experience was lackluster.

I had been to a Charthouse in San Francisco and had a much more upscale experience.

Our family comes to Chart House frequently. The food is excellent, the service is superb, and the view is amazing. The seafood is always fresh, and the steak is perfectly prepared. I love adding the salad bar to my entree. The desserts are excellent as well, but I am usually too full!

Celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary and Debbie, our server, did an outstanding job! We are on a special diet and she made sure we had the food we needed. The restaurant was very busy (prom, wedding reception) and we did have to wait for our entrees but the view was so pleasant we didn't mind. Great place to eat - we will be back!

Food was very good and beautiful view of the lake. Only complaint was continuous upselling. Started with salad bar, then their signature wine, then sides, then desert and then frequent dining card. Someone must be paid on commission

They took the coconut shrimp off the appetizer list so that it's only a dinner option so I ordered the wrong item. I was fairly disappointed but the manager made it right. The experience is always something my husband and I enjoy. It is a definite celebration designation and for good reason, it is clean, the food is good and so are the drinks, the staff is professional and the ambiance comfortable ... but the view of Lake Tahoe and the snow covered mountains are spectacular. Though you don't need to eat there to take in the view ... the combination is a winner.
