The Edgewood Restaurant was highly recommended by friends of ours who visited Tahoe previous to us. As we knew reservations were recommended, we stopped in the day before and made a reservation. About 3 hrs prior to our reservation, we received a confirmation call. Upon arriving, we were very surprised to see a large, very noisy wedding cocktail reception going on in the bar area near the restaurant. At no time, when we chose the time for our reservation or during the confirmation call was this event mentioned. If our reservation was 30-45 minutes later, we could have avoided the disrupting noise altogether. For the first 30 minutes, the restaurant was very, very loud. Our waiter, Mark, asked if we wanted a cocktail or wine and we said we needed a moment to decide. He seemed a bit annoyed that we didn’t know what we wanted. We ordered our cocktails and asked to keep the wine list as we would decide once we knew what we were ordering for dinner. Dinner came, we ate and about 2/3rds if the way through Mark came back and realized he never took our wine order so he said to my husband ‘Wow, that was fast, or did your throw your elk chop under the table’ insinuating how fast he ate. We didn’t eat fast, Mark missed coming to take our wine order. He was very inattentive until time to pick up the check. John, on the other hand, was very attentive and checked on us several times. Needless to say, the time spent at Edgewood wasn’t quite what it could have been. The food was very good but the service of the head waiter left a lot to be desired. If we are in the Tahoe area again, we would check first to see if there is another event and schedule a later dinner time and have any waiter but Mark.
