    Reconnecting with old friends Service and drinks fabulous. Striped Bass over done. My bad for not requesting medium rare but the skin was black. Like a steak, it should be medium rare or medium, not well done. Otherwise still love this place and the staff!

    Our waiter was excellent and all out appetizers were great. We ordered the striped bass fish special. Fish was cooked perfectly but not much flavor to the sauce. We would have preferred more sauce or a little more flavor to the dish. Overall the food is always good at the Lodge!

    We were celebrating two engagements and one anniversary, party of eight. Our waiter Michael was very attentive and everything was served perfectly. Dining area was quiet and comfortable. We brought a surprise cake that was delivered on time with set ups. Very enjoyable evening.

    This is a cut above your average ‘club’ restaurant, well above in fact. Comfortable decor, friendly service and good food. A new chef has recently arrived and it looks as if he will be making upgrades to an already solid menu.

    Very disappointed. We got married there for 4 years ago and we were very excited to be back. Our appetizer (ahi tuna) and my dinner (pasta special) had NO flavor. Husbands dinner was good.. They did absolutely nothing for our anniversary, didn't even acknowledge it. Don't ask us if we are celebrating a special occasion when we make our reservation if you don't care. We will not be back and I will make sure to not recommend to anyone.

    A golf lodge that doesn’t come across as a golf county club- in a good way ! That is to say, the ambiance of when you enter us that if a fine dining establishment. Very attentive staff!!! Very accommodating. Nicely appointed dining rooms with views of beautiful forest and golfing greens. Limited but focused menu with delicious sounding specials. Indeed the food is a star here. My wife’s short ribs were possibly the best we’ve ever tasted- and we’ve had a few! Perfectly presented and prepared. Simple but elegant. Wine list is varied and extensive while being fully approachable in price point. Would return for the food quality and exceptional service. Definitely a go to when on the north shore or Truckee!

    I splurged and had king salmon. It was on top of a delicious bed of greens and little assorted mushrooms. I love that the entrees are served with greens now. So much better than in the past. 2 in my party had fish tacos, both loved them.

    We had the most amazing waitress named Kate. She is fairly new to this restaurant, could not have been more friendly, she recommended dishes, her pacing was excellent, etc. The food was excellent, there was no noise due to it being a quiet night. It is very expensive. We split one entree and a salad, plus a few beers. The total came to $75.00 before a generous tip.

    The Lodge remains one of our favorite fine dining restaurants in the Truckee region. Staff are always welcoming, friendly, and professional, especially servers Mike and Olga. The interior of the restaurant is mountain-cozy and tables by the fires are wonderful in the winter. In summer, the deck and outdoor areas are perfect for lunch or dinner with friends. The menu changes seasonally, and dishes are always delicious and interesting. Save room for dessert, especially when the donuts are on the menu. So good!

    Excellent experience. We ordered the octopus app, halibut, tacos, and the kids fish (salmon) dinner. Everything was very flavorful and priced well. I would have given the food 5 stars but there was too much sauce on the halibut and the salmon was over cooked. The grilled carrots and asparagus side dishes were delish. We will definitely go back if we’re in the area.

    Food was good but a very limited menu. I assumed there would be a wider selection. It was more like a bar menu than a restaurant menu. They ask if it is a special occasion and we noted we were celebrating a birthday but there was no mention of that by the Lodge staff.

    This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant and we go here often. We were fortunate to have Michael wait on us and as usual we had superb service. The soup special was butternut squash, which is my favorite. We shared that and both ordered the swordfish special. Delicious. I highly recommend.
