Our Father's Day dinner was special. The food was delightful and view breathtaking. Our server was efficient and personable and got everything just right. We have always found Sunnyside to be our go to place to feel like we are really at Lake Tahoe and in touch with the Lake. We recommend it without reservation (but, you had better have a reservation!)
Beautiful & delicious
The food was creative and delicious, the service was fantastic and the views (especially at sunset) were outstanding. We can’t wait to visit again.
had dinner while on vacation in Tahoe. Great location overlooking the lake, good food, high energy bar scene while quiet dining is also available. The only downside is parking is tight
Great meal, friendly service, beautiful view!
Delicious! The view, the food, everything! Could not have asked for a better place to enjoy one of our last dinners at Lake Tahoe!
New menu and chef. Great improvement. I loved the "Hot Pot" with seafood and my husband loved the seared ahi. We never felt rushed even on a busy Saturday night. We always eat here when visiting Tahoe and we had a delicious and creative meal.
Excellent food, service, ambiance and wine list with a great view to boot!
Very pleasantly surprised! I thought this would be one of those places where you're paying for the view, and the food is mediocre; but this was the best meal I've had in the Tahoe City area, by far. The service was great, and they were very friendly to my toddler daughter. My steak was excellent, with a really flavorsome garlic sauce and perfect mash. And obviously the location is wonderful!
The service was excellent and the views were beautiful. My husbands fish tacos were delicious I would have given 5 stars but the crab in my salad tasted fishy. I would definitely go back though.
Nice dinner. Birthday celebration!
We have celebrated many Mother's Day at Sunnyside. We did enjoy ourselves and I'm sure well be back. The organization and presentation of the food was a bit lacking though 😕. Also, the ham was not great.
It’s been a Mother’s Day tradition for our family to enjoy a lakeside brunch at Sunnyside for over 25 years. This year did not disappoint. Everything was so good including the delicious, perfectly-spiced Bloody Mary 4 of us enjoyed along with the meal. The only thing that could have been better was the prime rib. It was cooked well done when I really prefer it to be medium rare. Other than that, it was a perfectly delightful meal with a spectacular view!
I have been to The Sunnyside many times over the years. I always make it one of my stops while in Lake Tahoe. While I enjoy the dinner aspect of The Sunnyside, I love the outdoor deck experience on a sunny summer afternoon! The Sunnyside is a special Tahoe gem (-:
Wonderful evening out with the family. Good selections, great food and treated royally.
Everything was amazing! I highly recommend the prosciutto wrapped prawns. The halibut and quinoa was incredible! Beautiful view!
Booked the restaurant for a special occasion - birthday for my traveling companion. Service was outstanding. Hostess was especially engaging and welcoming. Got there early mid-week towards the end of the ski season, so restaurant was quiet, but would have been good with a group any time. Setting and view was spectacular. Food was very good and creative. Was given a complimentary dessert for birthday celebration - such a nice gesture. Overall, a great experience and we will be back.
Best food I’ve ever eaten. Great service! Loved it.
Wonderful in the summer when you can eat outside on the shore of Lake Tahoe. It was also a very pleasant dinner venue this past week (April) with a large family and tired children. The view is unmatched. Food and wine were well above the usual Tahoe average--fresh ingredients, old standards plus interesting contemporary dishes on the menu. Restaurant was moderately noisy in April. In summer it's much more busy.
Sitting by the window overlooking Lake Tahoe while eating fabulous food should be on everyone’s bucket list! The restaurant’s ambiance is incredible. The redwood interior is very calming and comforting. The food selection was diverse, and very good. There was no rush to get you in and out. We enjoyed the evening until we were ready to go. Highly recommend the experience.
We had a wonderful experience eating at Sunnyside for our Easter dinner. When our friends asked to join us last minute the host staff was super accommodating and changed our reservation from a table of four to a table of ten! The service was excellent and the food delicious. And of course you can't beat the view! Highly recommend.
Sunnyside never disappoints. Even though they are literally on Lake Tahoe's West Shore with a killer view, they don't take it for granted. They have a diverse menu for most any appetite. Their staff are very attentive and knowledgeable. It's a lively scene for all ages. The deck is not to be missed in the summer.
The view of the lake is incredible! The service is always friendly! And don’t forget the Hula Pie for dessert!
Fulfilling a Christmas gift, my wife booked a room at Sunnyside and we had dinner in the restaurant. Having been to Sunnyside several times in the past, it’s a favorite place. The restaurant is always great.
We dined at Sunnyside after a day of skiing. It’s a few minutes down the road from the center of town but well worth the drive. It’s a popular place so parking was tight. The restaurant is on the lake with a near 180 degree view of the lake and mountains across the lake. It’s a perfect spot to watch the sunset, and changing colors of the mountains as the evening sun changes the snowy peaks from white to pink, against a purple sky.
Fried zucchini sticks are a must! We loved them. They have a kids menu so my son was happy. My wife enjoyed the rainbow trout special, it was perfect. I had the ny strip steak which was very tasty and cooked to a perfect medium heat.
We enjoyed Sunnyside!
Had a great dinner. The Elk was excellent. Always start with zucchini sticks and finish off with Hula pie - yummy.
This was one of the best dining experiences that we have ever had. The service was exemplary and the food was out of this world. Two in our group ordered the hanger steak, one ordered the seafood bowl, one ordered the salmon rice bowl, one ordered the New York Strip Steak special, and lastly, I ordered the Elk. Everything was amazing. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking for an excellent dinner in a restaurant with an excellent vibe.
Restaurant was great. The service was wonderful and food was delicious. We went to the bar area after for some drinks and had to keep calling over the waitress to help us, which was unsatisfactory.
Nice varied menu. Good service. Fantastic view. Always a treat
Awesome, great view, food and service
The ribs and salmon bowl were outstanding. We had a great time!
Fried Zucchini is a must, at times lots of Families but always great food, service & views inside & out
It is winter and we dined inside. The noise level was a little high. We had the abalone/ scallop dish. It was breaded, we didn’t realize that. It was tasty, but not over the top. Wine selection is a little pricey, but most of Tahoe is overpriced in that area. We enjoy eating at this restaurant in the summer since it is right on the Lake. We will return.
Food was excellent and our waiter was also great, very friendly and attentive to our needs. We had a nice booth, could still see the lake. Overall a great experience.
Great food and good service. The elk was fantastic as was the Salmon.
Went here for my daughters birthday. It’s a little pricey but food was good. It was quiet on. Monday night and the dining room was a little cold. Good food choices for gluten free but not so much for vegetarian or vegan.
Sunnyside was really great at accommodate our party of 4 adults and 2 toddlers. We never felt rushed to leave, the food was great, and the staff was very friendly. I'd definitely come back.
We enjoyed a nice birthday dinner here. It was dark so couldn’t see the lake this time but I bet it’s a great view when it’s light out. Waiter was very friendly and staff were warm and attentive. Seafood chowder was wonderful.
The restaurant was very nice and the food was outstanding. The staff was exceptional and was willing to do whatever it took to make the experience exceptional.
We've been coming to Sunnyside for 15 years. The food has always been nicely prepared. Although as much as I like green day, not so much while out for a nice dinner.
