                                                                My husband and I checked this place out during our vacation. Just as we had expected, over-priced average food. Small portions and mediocre flavor. I recommend you get out of heavenly village if you're looking for an actual fine-dining experience. The location is convenient...that's about it.

The kids corn dog is deep fried and odd. The prices are high as they get you for convenience of attending magic show. I ordered two cosmopolitans and they were $16 each which is outrageous and the first tasted completely different than the second. I would not recommend this restaurant at all. Only good part was our server Scott who was very sweet and included the marshmallow package free of charge after the show. I think he knew we were not happy with our tiny portioned and highly overpriced dishes!

We ordered the filet mignon, seared tuna, and a half ciabatta bread, along with glasses of the house red. We always come to the loft for drinks but we made a reservation as a late Valentines Day. The staff was lovely, and the food was AMAZING! Tapas- so small plates- were nicely sized, we could've gone with one more dish but we were more than happy with what we had.

The salad was delicious and the tuna was delicious. We had no alcohol or sodas and after tip the meal was $150. Very pricey for the quantity and flavorfulness of the food.

I was informed that night by the manager it was just changed that day! Bad timing on my part. The salad was good size. The portion for the entree was small with a good size price tag! I had the Filet Mignon. It is Lake Tahoe so it is expected! The service is top notch. The food was wonderful! I went to the After Dark magic show after and had an awesome time! The show is great! Highly recommended for a fun night and great food in Lake Tahoe!

                                                                This place was a find. Working off the internet, I was a little dubious about the whole magic show aspect, wondering if this was going to be some sort of kids Chuck-E Cheez-type thing. It was not (though there were kids around who went in with their parents to the magic show, which seemed to be in a separate theater from the bar/restaurant). The atmosphere was very cool and modern. Even, as our waitress at McP's kept saying when we asked her about the place: "sexy". It's a ski-town and this place hit the sweet spot where you'd be comfortable in either jeans or nicer clothes. The food was spectacular, the service was friendly and spot-on, and the quality/price relationship was quite good! Highly recommended

The bruschetta was composed of pitiful no taste winter tomatoes and lots of garlic. Would have preferred some basil and parsley. The chicken Parmesan came edged in a black crust. Don’t waste your time here. No redeeming feature to offset the food

We also went to the magic show. I felt so sorry for the performer....little children running around and a drunk woman heckler in the back----whatever they pay him, it is not enough for what he has to put up with!

On Another note the server lost our bill and said that he didn’t charge us for something which he did and try to play it off like he was giving us a discount not true when we asked for an itemized receipt which we should’ve done to begin with

                                                                We had the butternut tortellini. It was half cooked and tough. When we ask to share a large salad, the waiter did not split it into two plates. When we arrived, there was no one to greet us until 10 minutes late. When we ask for a regular table instead of a high table, we were that those tables are for a bigger group even when we made this reservation in advance Well, those tables were still empty when we left after an hour later. Very disappointed with this highly rate place.

The cocktail list was very interesting and I ended up with a great one by the suggestion of our server. We each had a fantastic meal and the wine list was good as well. My husband was happy seeing the cheesecake in the dessert list. Overall great experience.
