One in our party ordered lamb shank but before ordering asked the waiter if it was sweet. The waiter assured him that it was not and he ordered it. It turned out to be very sweet and he could not eat it and said he will take it home and doctor it. He refused to complain or return it because he considered it impolite. We all gave him a bit from our plates so he doesnt go hungry

Otherwise i would have rated yor restaurant higher. Indru kriplani

I write at least five reviews each year for "Wolfdale's". Suffice it to say that it's our "go to" spot for a consistently outstanding dining experience!

Food is top-notch; Service falls in line as well. Price is on the higher end, but the product can argue that it's warranted. Will recommend and would go back next time in Tahoe.

Most of the vegetarian plate could have come from the refrigerated snacks available at Safeway except the mushroom potstickers, those were very good The caprese was middling but the black basil leaf was great
My husband had some sort of meat and said it was good
So it’s OK but for all the hoopla and the affected service....

I can't believe we have been coming to Tahoe over 30 years and now living here over 15 years and never been here! what an amazing experience, great ambiance, service and outstanding food. It was our 35th anniversary and we just had to go. We started with the oysters, the presentation and taste was the freshest I had ever tasted, then the Poke cones were amazing too, ceaser salad next yum. I had the Land and Sea, OMG came on two different matching plates! Short rib with Asian flare and scallops with a yummy fresh corn -almost like creamed corn but fresh! my husband had surf and terf again perfect med rare and perfectly done lobster, he wouldn't even give me a taste!
We will be going back now more often such a treat!

Outstanding overall and consistently the best place to eat around the lake. The cocktails, starters, main & desert was delicious.
I had the scallops which were prepared and presented to perfection, the smoked trout appetizer is amazingly delicious.

My go to place on a first date, even if she likes Chardonay, because with the wine list (it's great) I can always find one I can drink. Service is superb & there isn't a bad seat in the house.

My wife thought the sauce on the sole was too rich. Had a slight upset stomach. I didn’t care for the preparation of the halibut as much as other preparations. Everything else was great. It remains our favorite place. Dawn is a sweetheart. Chip’s ok too!

Well prepared main dishes combining fresh California and Asian flavors, albeit pricey compared to similar restaurants in San Francisco. The service was excellent as was the fresh bread. The oysters were just OK. The dessert and espresso were other low points. One last note, the restaurant is a big favorite with the well-heeled "locals" so be prepared to overhear loudly discussed concerns of the bourgeoisie. Otherwise, worth a special night out in Tahoe.

Outstanding! The menu is excellent. So many wonderful items on the menu it was hard to select just a few. Worth going back over and over again. Jeff, our waiter, was excellent. He has served out table many times. He is the best! One of the best restaurants on the lake. Get reservations on the deck if possible for a special occasion but the interior is wonderful also
