I dined at Woldales twice last week. Both times really enjoyed the little chicken dumplings appetizer. Perfect. The steak was delicious - perfectly prepared. The Halibut was very good, the rice with it a little subpar. The salmon special was superb. Excellent food, fabulous setting, fun bar, outstanding service. If you are in Tahoe area, be sure to get to Wolfdales.

All good with the exception of the hostess with an " attitude". She was offended by our requests for 2 different tables. One did not fill until we were leaving. It was our second time there in a week and had a similar feeling both times. Our guests were not pleased.

We have eaten at this restaurant multiple times. Very disappointed this time and probably won't return until we hear positive feedback again. We had a party of 6. 3 meals were very good and 3 were marginal. Appetizers expensive and very small portions. Service was poor. Many other restaurants in the area we can give s better overall review of.

Excellent choice in the 90's and still a wonderful, calm venue to celebrate a special event or just have an excellent and interesting dinner with your partner. Beautiful view of the lake, ask for a terrace seat in the summer. Some music in the bar that does not bleed in to the diningroom so you can enjoy talking with your companions without having to yell. Food is truly unique. An evening well spent.

We were excited to try Wolfdale's with friends visiting from the East Coast after hearing great reviews about the food and never having been. While the food was good, I have to say we were disappointed because the service was so incredibly slow the evening we were there. For the sake of the restaurant's reputation, I'm hoping that there was something odd going on the night we were there and this is not the norm. I'd be willing to try the restaurant again because the food was good. The trout was exceptional, and those of us who ordered the Seafood Stew really enjoyed it.

Some of the best food we have had in a long time, and we live in the wine country of California where great food is the norm. The service, however, was horrible. We must have had a poor waitress, while we were quickly seated, we sat for more than 20 minutes waiting for menus and to order drinks, and then another 10 minutes waiting for wine glasses for the wine we brought ourselves. The drinks came 10 minutes after the glasses. During this time, the waitress was "busy" chatting up other tables who had already been served both drinks and food. On the plus side, the Chef came out to meet us, and he was very impressive, attentive, and friendly, and once again, the food was fantastic! I would, and already have, recommend the place to friends, but the service needs a re-work.

Clearly, Wolfdale's is the best restaurant in Tahoe city. Each diner's meal was thoughtfully prepared and served. We sat outside, and even though there was a local Bocci game in progress, the noise and "enthusiasm" levels were within acceptable limits. It's nice to see that Wolfdale's caters to both tourists and locals.
On a related note, one side of our table had a lovely view of Lake Tahoe, while the other side faced inward. But the large mirror on the facing wall gave the less fortunately seated diners a view, too. It's details like this that make a good restaurant, great.

Food was absolutely delicious.
Had been too long since we'd dine there and hope to return soon!
* Probably a notable wine list, but brought a special bottle for our anniversary.

My second visit this summer to Wolfdales. First visit was great. Second visit was bad. The service was very slow. Food was ok, but not worth the long wait. There must have been a staffing problem. Will give them another try, as it has been a long time favorite.

Wolfdale's is the best food on Lake Tahoe! My wife and I have had dinner all around the Lake, but we keep coming back to Wolfdale's. The food is out of this world. The presentation is artistic and tasteful. The combination of flavors are creative and sumptuous. The service was outstanding. Attentive, but not in your way. This is some of the best food we have had anywhere in the world. And the views of Tahoe are breathtaking. Simply the Best....

We were visiting Lake Tahoe for the week and we read reviews about Wolfdale's The menu looked very interesting. The place is very upscale and well kept. They have a notable wine list and prices are reasonable. The service was top notch and the food was amazing.

I loved the crab cakes on special, ahi poke cones and I absolute loved my Thai Seafood Chippino! Great service, great view and great food!

I always have a great experience at Wolfdale's. Food is excellent, service and atmosphere outstanding, and you can't beat the Lake Tahoe view. Very enjoyable dinner to cap off a great 10 days at Lake Tahoe - I remember eating at Wolfdale's when it was on the west shore, and I hope to enjoy many more meals there.

We always love going to Wolfdale's whenever we are in Tahoe City. The food is always outstanding, especially the tempura softshell crab in summer. The waitstaff is very friendly, and the wine list is very comprehensive.

Disappointed with the service. We went there to celebrate my husbands 39th birthday and no birthday wishes with the1 desert we ordered or not even in the house after a $200 dinner for a party if 2 adults and 2 kids.

Over the 40 years I have been visiting Tahoe City, I have not dined at Wolfdales. What a shame! All the fabulous meals I have missed. John was our server and he was stellar. The food was served beautifully and was delicious. The atmosphere was lovely, even with tables in close
proximity to each other. My husband and I had a most enjoyable dinner. We will return.

This was our 7th time over 7 years eating here and the menu has not changed. The view is amazing and I want to love this place again, but it feels stuck. There are other options in Tahoe City that seem to care more about the food and experience. Disappointed but hopeful because I love the view & ambience!

The ambiance was great. We sat outside and had a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. However, I'm very sorry to have to write the food was bad. We have eaten at this restaurant before and the food was great. I have no idea why on this night it was bad. Our appetizers were passable. The highlight was our cold watermelon soup however the salad was bland. The entrees were tasteless and extremely disappointing. All four of us had same experience. I am terribly sorry to have to write this review since again, previous time at restaurant was terrific and the ambiance was beautiful and fun.
