We were in Tahoe for one night and I found Wolfdales on open table and we decided to try it out.
We were very happy overall with the experience.
Excellent service, Excellent food and excellent well mixed Martini.

We visit Tahoe several times a year. Wolfdales is a new favorite!

We love Wolfdale's. Douglas always serves world-class cuisine. The service is equally impeccable.
We love that he has Frank Family Chardonnay and Pinot Noir on his wine list.

In a word ..... perfect! Casey our waiter went above and beyond! Never felt rushed which is my pet peeve when dining! Food as always was delicious! If I had any thing negative to say it was the loud talking people next to us which has really nothing to do with Wolfdales although the tables are rather close together!
We eat here often and have never had a bad experience! Already looking forward to our return!!

We went to Wolfdale's to celebrate the transaction of a business closing. The atmosphere, and quality of food was excellent. The service was very professional but a little on the slow side. All in all a very nice dinner experience and i would definitely go again.

Wolfdale's has never ceased to wow us! We've been dining at this restaurant for almost 20 years and it's still a top-notch restaurant with a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. The menu is not long, but each dish is carefully and superbly prepared. Service is attentive and knowledgeable. Ambiance is elegant and you can't beat the gorgeous lake view on sunset! Arrive early and have a drink at the bar before dinner!

We went there for après ski dinner with our kids and the service was outstanding and kid-friendly for well-behaved ones and the food was terrific. The quality of food and preparation were what stuck in my mind. The variety and creativity transcend different cultures and are inspired by California-Asian cuisines. We had an excellent experience and one that we would like to repeat.

Cozy romantic place with solid, pricey food. Crab cake and carpaccio specials were scrumptious, black cod special was a little less so, Caesar salad was overdressed. Server was seasoned and attentive without hovering.
