Wolfdale's Cuisine Unique Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding in every way. We have been to Tahoe for many years and never eaten at Wolfdales. We decided to go on our anniversary and were blown away by the food. Absolutely delicious. The service was stellar. What a wonderful restaurant and we will be back the next time we are in Tahoe.
We have eaten here many times during our trips to tahoe from san fran over the years. The food and service was so good this time as they had such unique choices like foie gras with parsnip and perfect oysters with champange. I will definently go again soon.
It’s one of those places that you can count in for just about anyone to love. Fantastic food, great atmosphere, cool dinnerware, nice service. So relaxing but not stuffy or too formal. Yum!!! And one of the few restaurants that has ever taken note when I made the Rez fir a special date ( my hubbys birthday). Sweet!
You can never go wrong with a dinner at Wolfdale’s. The food is terrific, especially the fish dishes. The scallop appetizer was fantastic and so was the smoked trout. We make a point of coming for a happy hour and a dinner here every time we visit North Lake Tahoe.
I was very surprised by this restaurant. The food was amazing. I only wish I had found this place earlier in the week because I would have eaten there a couple times in order to try everything. We tried 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and 2 deserts and there is nothing I would not recommend. The service was great. The atmosphere lively. I hope this restaurant is still around on my next trip to North Lake Tahoe. I'll be returning for sure!!!!
Can always count on fresh, local ingredients and good food prep here. Fun cocktails too and a nice wine list. Good variety from meat, seafood, to vegetarian. The service is over the top, with very professional servers. The chef/owner quietly checks on his guests during dinner as well. He also sent us a complimentary dessert. How sweet in more ways than one! We’ll be back!
Wolfdales never disappoints. We go several times a year and haven’t missed an anniversary dinner there in 20+ years. This year some friends joined us and we all agreed that the dinner was as good as it gets. Where many fine restaurants have a wonderful entrée and adequate side dishes, Wolfdale’s entire plate offers a veritable symphony.... it hits on all cylinders. Attention is paid to every single last detail… And the service was impeccable.
Wolfdale's has always been a treat for the thirty years I've lived in Tahoe.
The attention to detail is superb, the food - really creative and always delicious. As Tahoe's quality restaurant offerings have diminished in the three decades I've lived here (meaning operators cutting corners because hey - it's Tahoe, and they know you're gonna come), it's so nice to have a place like Wolfdales - locally owned, committed to their way of doing things, and always a treat.
My partner and I are not wine drinkers, so I can't really comment on the wine selection.
If you want more intimate and quiet, go early. Things can get a little energetic once the wine starts to flow.
What a wonderful experience we had I came across an article on the chef and it made us want to try it out. Welcomed by the lovely hostess and sat down the waiter was very nice. Let us know the specials and after ordering we knew we made the right choices. We can't wait to come back. The food was above and beyond our expectations.
