Lake Tahoe Restaurants


Updated 02/25/2014

Fodor's Review

Consistent, inspired cuisine makes Wolfdale's one of the top restaurants on the lake. Seafood is the specialty on the changing menu; the imaginative entrées merge Asian and European cooking (drawing on the chef-owner's training in Japan) and lean toward the light and healthful, rather than the heavy and overdone. Everything from teriyaki glaze to smoked fish is made in-house. Request a window table, and book early enough to see the lake view from the elegantly simple

dining room.

Always Excellent

I have been dining at Wolfdale's throughout its 30 year history and have always been delighted with the consistency of it's excellent cuisine. The atmosphere is "Tahoe Elegant", which means you can wear a suit, or outdoorsy sportswear and still be comfortable in the well appointed dining room or bar. The food is fresh, delicious, and creative with changing menus and specials. You dine on hand made tableware, with attentive, but not over-bearing wait

staff. Prices are in-line with other quality area restaurants, and the portions are more than adequate. This is not a "tiny-service nouvelle" restaurant! Like it's many published reviews and it's name implies, Wolfdale's is "Cuisine Unique"!

Good food but not good value

We were a party of four, who all agreed with our dining experience at Wolfdale's. We found the food appealingly presented, and on colorful pottery, and it was tasteful. However, the prices were too high for what we got, in our opinion, and the service and ambience was mediocre. We all agreed that we wouldn't go back again, and wouldn't be recommending it to friends.
