    The Lodge is consistently good, and we've been going occasionally since before the pandemic. The food is top notch, and the drinks are respectably stiff.

    The ambiance was ok - it seemed a bit run down and definitely too warm in there. Our server was fabulous - so fun and engaging. It was really the food that was just not up to par. I had the chicken which was very tasty but slightly over cooked. The mashed potatoes were delicious! My husband had the New York steak which at $52 was literally the worst New York steak I’ve ever tasted. It was cooked perfectly. However, we planned to share each entree but after one bite I couldn’t eat anymore. We didn’t send it back because we just don’t do that I feel awful to complain. With that said I wouldn’t go back and if you go skip the NY steak. We shared the zeppoli for dessert which was just ok. Such a bummer because we were really looking forward to a nice meal.

    Our dinner at The Lodge was excellent from start to finish. We were greeted and seated promptly and our wonderful server, Mike, got our drinks promptly and let us know the specials. He was friendly, fast, and professional, and did an excellent job of answering questions and describing both the wines and the meals we chose. Very helpful! I had the fish special which was lingcod that evening, and it was excellent. My husband had a burger and fries, and the burger was cooked to perfection and served with crispy fries. We shared the donuts for dessert, which came with three dipping sauces (chocolate, strawberry, lemon curd) and were perfectly fried and delicious. The restaurant is beautiful, with a casual mountain vibe, views of the beautiful golf course, and comfortable seating. This is our favorite Truckee restaurant. The menu changes regularly and has something for everyone, including vegetarian options and a children's menu. The wine and beer lists are comprehensive, and hand-crafted cocktails are always good. The bar is a great place to grab a drink or dinner, watch a game, meet friends. Service here is always excellent. The staff are courteous, friendly, efficient, and professional. We dine here regularly and have always had wonderful dinners, either just us as a couple, or with friends.

    I really hate to write this because we have been going to the Lodge for years. The pasta special, Pappardelle with short rib ragu was simply bad. The pasta was a stuck together mass. The "ragu" was simply their usual short rib broken up on top of the pasta. It wasn't mixed in because as I noted it was a giant lump. I did mention this to the waitress but nothing was done. My wife's fish tacos were OK.

    So disappointed in the food. Ahi poke app was tasteless. Such a disappointment from the previous version. The fish tacos were boring - not nearly the level of flavor as the previous fish tacos. One guest at our table commented “the french fries are better than the tacos”. Sadly, we have always looked forward to dinners at The Lodge and last night when we left, we actually said we didn’t need to go back. Sorry for the bad review. It was not worth it.🙁👎

    This is a beautiful setting with absolutely perfect weather this time of year. However, we were largely ignored by our server when she would spend much more time at other tables. We were brought the incorrect beer, and when she finally noticed, we were almost done with our food. It was replaced, but then she tried to charge us for 3 beers when we only really had 2. The food is good and the setting is very nice. Service needs improvement.
