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 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.

We had seafood stew, sea bass in a red curry sauce, and salmon entrees, with smoked trout as an appetizer. Everything was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The smoked trout is not to be missed. It was a lovely start to the meal, which was complimented by a bottle of Navarro Gwertztraminer.

Since 1978, the (same) chef Dale has meticulously selected the finest ingredients and provided a consistently excellent dining experience. Last week, he surprised us with a complementary dessert for being repeat customers since 1980.

Our favorite dining spot in Tahoe City. You can always depend on a great meal. Flavors are full yet delicate. Portions are just right and the wait staff is very good about taking care of your every need without hovering.

What a treat! The sea bass and halibut entrees were cooked to perfection, the grilled artichoke was delicious, service was attentive but not overbearing, setting absolutely beautiful, right to the full moon rising over Lake Tahoe - couldn't ask for more, it was just lovely. The artwork throughout the restaurant is a nice personal touch. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

As Always the food,service and ambiance was perfect. After coming periodically for over 30 years, we are never disappointed . This time was special as a good friend from out of town came over and it felt very good to be able to confidently recommend a great restaurant.

Fantastic experience. Chef Dale has a gem in Tahoe. Gorgeous view. Possibly the best seafood dish I've ever had. Corvina Sea Bass over rice with a perfect curry Thai reduction. If Chef is offering don't pass it up! Also had the smoked trout and the elk sausage skillet. Both must tries.
Consistently outstanding. A great find ...
Consistently outstanding. A great find in Tahoe City. Wolfdale's also has a great happy hour and many locals and others dine on small plates at the bar. A nice change when you only want an appetizer and not an entire meal. We have eaten at Wolfdale's almost every time we're in Tahoe City and have never been disappointed.
Best Restaurant in California
We have been dinning here for over 30 years, since Wolfdale's started in Homewood. We recently ate there for my 83rd birthday and rented a house at Tahoe just to be able to do so. The food is an interesting and delicious blend of Japanese and European styles. there is very good seafood and even superb oysters. The sashimi is the best. There are outdoor and indoor tables with great views of the lake. It is unbeatable for a special occasion.
Tahoe Zen Moments
A tranquil and picturesque setting for a creative (and tasty) dinner. Each course felt like a work of art. The poke cones and shrimp artichoke appetizers were particularly memorable. Staff is also very wine savvy. We'll be back next time we visit Tahoe

Our waiter was everything , the food was good and reasonable noise level very quite. Usually mgmt doesn't do anything to keep things comfortable for some reason large tables were quite. Hopefully they keep the dinning area not a sorority reunion..
Interesting, ambitious menu-the kitchen delivers
Looking forward to coming back soon. Everything was excellent--the bread, hamachi/tuna sashimi, filet mignon, lamb shank, hazelnut chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream, thai seafood, scallops appetizer, Moroccan sausage. Service was very professional and competent and friendly.
