Fodor's Review

The best restaurant in the entire Tahoe Basin is the epitome of discreet chic for serious foodies. The menu changes seasonally, but look for filet mignon "Oscar" with Dungeness crab, braised short ribs with kimchi-Asian pear slaw, and inventive vegetarian dishes. Rather than complicated, heavy sauces, the chef uses simple reductions to complement a dish. The result: clean, dynamic flavors. The wine list is exceptional for its variety and reasonable prices. A less expensive but equally adventurous menu, including lunch, is served at the bar.
