During this pandemic there have only been a few restaurants we trust to keep us safe while we dine, and The Lodge is one of them. They've done an excellent job of following protocols, distancing other diners, and still providing superior service and food. This visit was to celebrate my husband's birthday, and it was marvelous as always. The service was superb, professional, friendly, and unhurried. The food was excellent, we always love the King salmon special, and the Chicken Kale Brown Rice soup served this evening was delicious. I hope the chef puts that soup in regular rotation. We look forward to many return visits.

Outdoor dining at the Lodge is very pleasant, but although the waitstaff is nice, the food is low quality and overpriced.

Sat out on the deck on a cool fall evening with an excellent white and red wine to accompany everyone's spectacular meal. As always, the special, tonight Salmon in a Cauliflower sauce was exceptional.

First time at the Lodge. Nice location, a little ways out of town, but easy to find. Website menu and restaurant menu did not exactly match but no big issues. Alex was a great waiter and was very helpful and customer-friendly.

I was quite disappointed with the food and service. Because of Covid, we were restricted to outdoor seating. With the level of chilliness, we asked the server to turn on the heating lamp. After several failed attempts, they weren't able to turn on the heat. We found out later that customers were allowed to eat indoors. It took about 45 minutes to order food. We waited a long time to get our food and a new server kept on giving us the wrong food. The food was overpriced and average. I will give it another try in hopes for a better experience.

Having to dine the way we do nowadays, could not have picked a more pleasant location! We indulged ourselves with delicious food, a bottle of wine we new we wanted to order ahead of time and even managed dessert, all the while watching the sunset among the trees. Thank you for a beautiful and safe dining experience.

I have gone to The Lodge twice in the last 2 weeks. I took 5 guests last Friday, ate on the lower deck and everyone had outstanding dinners. Alex was our server and he was excellent! This Sunday I took another guest and ate on the upstairs deck. Watermelon arugula salad was incredible, octopus was uniquely presented and perfectly prepared! The salmon filet over mashed potatoes entrée had great flavors and, once again, was perfectly prepared! Michael was our server and he did a masterful job with recommendations and making our meal a wonderful experience!
Hats off to The Lodge x 2!

The Lodge in COVID-19 mode is still a wonderful restaurant. With both the outdoor deck and the new "Pavilion" seating, there is plenty of room to dine safely and still have admirable views for all. Staff take excellent care of customers from the hand sanitizing station upon entry, to the socially distanced markings in the entry, to the required masks and hand sanitizer on the dining tables.

One of the things we love about The Lodge is the seasonal menu, with the freshest and highest quality ingredients for every dish. Because the dishes change regularly, the restaurant always feels new and up-to-date. We also love the selection of appetizers, small plates, and full dinners, which means we can customize our meals based on our appetites. When The Lodge has King salmon, we always order it, not only is it fresh, the preparation is perfect. Save room for dessert! The Lodge has excellent donuts with dipping sauces, worth every calorie, but you're going to burn them off with all the fun activities available in Tahoe Donner.
