Went there with friends we hadn’t seen in a long time for a special evening in an upscale, intimate environment with exceptional service and outstanding food. We were not disappointed! The food was a visual wonder with exceptional flavors. We will definitely go back the next time we are in South Lake Tahoe!

This is such a charming place to have a delightful dinner. This was our first dining experience here and have wanted to try it for quite awhile. It was worth the wait. The service was very good and food even better. You need to make a reservation in advance there are only 10 tables. I had the salmon dish with lobster risotto. It was very filling. I could have eaten either one as my main meal. Desert was very good as well . Note if you order bananas foster that it is not flambe’ the way you expect. I will definitely dine here again

We celebrated our 40th anniversary here and it couldn’t have been better. The food was presented beautifully and was as good as a meal could be. The savory chile cheesecake was the most original dish we’ve ever had and it was great. The place is intimate and cozy. They bring a board with the specials which they tell you about and then leave it with you while you decide what you want. We have eaten at amazing restaurants but none better than this. We will always come back any time we visit South Lake Tahoe.

This is a must in South Lake Tahoe. Small place so make a reservation. The food, service, and staff all incredible. The food was outstanding. From the quail appetizer to my Lobster tamale to dessert...wine list too.
