    Always love The Lodge. The menu had just been updated and a couple of our favorites were missing (eg polenta entree). We found some of the new additions to be a bit bland, but the service was great.

    For the first time ever, and we do dinner at the Lodge several times a year, the food was disappointing. The smoked nuts appetizer was much too spicy and had a weird taste. The venison main entree was also much to spicy to enjoy. Please Chef, no more pepper!!! If we want to poison our mouths with pepper, it's always available on the table!! I do want to thank Kristen for listening to our comments.

    Overall very good. The room is a bit crowded when full and it was very warm. The menu is limited but the meals were all well prepared. I liked our server a lot but they were a little short handed so we didn’t see him as often as we liked. I would still go back no questions asked.

    The food was absolutely fantastic!! The service not so much. We ordered an appetizer the same time we ordered drinks. We got our drinks quickly and then before we knew it our entrees were served. We questioned the appetizer and they said they would bring it out but we told them just to cancel it. When the bill came, the $20 appetizer was included in the bill. Although the two tables around us seemed to have great service and were constantly being checked on, we were left forgotten at our table. I would go back but hopefully seated in a different section.

    We had a wonderful quiet birthday celebration at The Lodge main dinning room. The food was superb! I had the Alaska Halibut and my birthday boy had the Venison. We shared a Caesar salad topped with that lovely crisp fried parmesan. Everything from the delicious cocktails to the final bite was terrific. The service was good, the room is nice. We will be back.

    Once again a wonderful experience at the Lodge in Tahoe Donner. We weren’t that hungry so we got the beet salad, broccolini Side and split the steelhead entre with a nice bottle of Sav Blanc. The chef plated our food separately which we appreciate. The beet salad was yummy. Super fresh and clean. The steelhead was out of this world. I’ve decided that for a nice dinner in Truckee/Tahoe this is the only restaurant I’ll go to. It’s close to my vacation property and the food and service are always top notch. I’ve never been disappointed there. I’m thrilled to have such good fine dining in my neighborhood

    The Lodge is the perfect place for dinner when in the Truckee/Tahoe area. It's a wonderful mountain lodge restaurant with warm and comfortable ambience, friendly and professional staff, and delicious food and drinks. The menu changes seasonally, and there is something for everyone. This visit, my husband had the pasta special which was 5-cheese tortellini with mushroom sauce, and it was delicious. I had the Ramen bowl with chicken, and while it was described as mildly spicy, I didn't think it was very spicy at all, so I added sriracha to it to amp up the spiciness. It was very tasty, with a green curry-type broth, lots of noodles and veggies, and plenty of chicken. My husband and I split the vanilla creme brulee, and it was beautifully creamy with plenty of vanilla, and a lovely crunchy top. Service as always was impeccable. We love this place!
