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.

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.

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.

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.
