The Loft was a fun atmosphere to catch up with our friends we haven't seen in a while. Food was good, drinks were good and the service was awesome. We saw the magic show after dinner. It was definitely a cool evening.

Never been to an Italian style restaurant that served no bread before or with dinner? Who eats pasta with no bread? Food was marginal at best, and my son was still starving after finishing his sad little entree and we had to get him something from the kids menu to hold him over since another $25 plate of subpar ravioli was OUT of the question. Expensive for what you get and a Super weird vibe in there too. Won't be back.

Dinner was delicious. The drinks were really good. Cocktails were different than your average cocktail so they are very creative in their drink and food menu. Great service also. We went to dinner before the magic show which was also a fun thing to do. I would definitely return to eat dinner or just drink and eat apps.

While the food and the service were ok, this place was nothing to write home about. Better tasting food can be found in other local places for the price. Ordered steak gorgonzola. Stated steak served on cheese tortellini with an alfredo goronzola sauce. Came on penne with a water alfredo and gorgonzola sprea on the steak. Favor was ok but disappointed. Also, this is an italian reataurant and there was no bread served with the meal. For the price I expected more and better.

One of our 3 favorite restaurants in Tahoe. The Shrimp Scampi is something I keep ordering every time we're here, and I'm not even much of a pasta fan. The Smores are an instant hit for the kids and make for a great kickoff for tickets to the Magic Show immediately after dinner. If you have a family or you're just looking for a live show, you can't beat the Loft.

We had a wonderful time. Our food had great flavor and was fresh. The six of us seemed to be very happy with salads and entrees. Only a couple of minor mentions a little too dark at table 1 trying to read menus and wall behind us was angled so had to move table out so heads didn't hit. Not a big deal. The food, cocktails and wine list selection was very good and not overpriced. The Magic show was a lot of fun. Second time seeing the show and enjoyed it once again. Magician is amazing. The Magician knows a lot of people have been skiing all day then eat and drink so he was good about keeping the crowd engaged when they are getting tired at a 9pm show. Love that The Loft is conveniently located next to the Marriott. We will visit again. Thank you

Hidden gem in South Lake Tahoe! A little pricey but has a great seasonal cocktail menu. My dad and I really enjoyed our waiter's recommendations. Would recommend for anyone looking for a nicer dinner in South Lake Tahoe without committing to a steakhouse.

My wife and I really enjoyed the experience. Our server, Scott, made some great recommendations. We had the grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato bisque as an appetizer. My wife had the shrimp scampi and I had the beef tenderloin with tortellini. Both were excellent. Great service. It is an open area, so it was quite loud, but tolerable.

It was very nice, only one complaint. When we were almost done they had a Dj setting up and they basically told us we had to leave or pay $10. Why would we pay $10 each when we just spend over $100 on dinner. It was very annoying. Overall the food, atmosphere, were very fun.

Birthday celebration before the Magic Show...................................
I would recommend as an easy evening before going into the magic show but not for a BD celebration. The waiter was great, but there was a long wait before we were even acknowledged. The table we were given in a back very dark corner had a slanted ceiling, so it was a bit uncomfortable. When we came with reservations, there were other tables we could sit at but were not offered. Each time our candle burned out we grabbed others off the tables for light and ambiance. No employees one seemed to care. No one in my family wanted to speak up as they were trying to make it a positive, happy 60th celebration for me. I'm usually the one who has to speak up, but I was trying to be a good sport for all their effort. So there you go.... could have easily been better.
