We have gone to Wolfdales for a number of years and have always enjoyed it. With their great views, unique cuisine for the daring as well as traditional basics for those who would like to stay to a basic menu.

We came to Wolfdales to celebrate my daughter’s first mother’s day. We’re from Portland and were unfamiliar with restaurants in the Lake Tahoe area, so we got recommendations from the resort where we were vacationing. We chose Wolfdales because we like seafood and it appeared to be a high quality restaurant. We ordered and had our soup and salads. When our entrees came, I took my first bite of my lingcod and noticed a strong ammonia smell which indicated the the fish was bad. The waiter did not check back with us and at the end of the meal when the table was cleared the bus boy asked if he could box mine. I told him that the fish was bad and he sent over our waiter. He took the item off our tab, but gave no apologies. Poor food-poor service. We won’t be back.

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.

Wolfdale's gets better every time we go. And it was spectacular the first time, years ago. The entire experience is beautiful, first rate, and delicious. Attentive, first class staff, as well.
