Wolfdales is popular with the locals because of the consistently good food, drinks and happy hour. The bar is beautiful but dark so if you are wanting lake views, be sure to request this when you make your reservations. Service is generally good and wine list was very good.

We had an amazing seat on the far deck overlooking there patio are were there is boccce ball and had great views of the lake. Everything was wonderful had a very nice zinfandel to start and then we ordered an sea scallop tempura dish with figs it was exquisite. Then we moved on to cease salads, and my husband had filet and crab legs for an entree and I ordered a halibut filet in coconut Thai with rice and a light pesto it was wonderful. We had a peach dish for dessert that was very flavorful. Our water and bussers, we're so attentive and informative they made our dining experience 5 star. We sat next to another couple who were also celebrating there anniversary and they ended up ordering all the same things it was fun and we will be back......

First of all there is not a lot on offer in Tahoe City. I had frankly gotten tired of Wolfdales last year but they revamped the menu a tad this summer and at times it seems to be more exciting than others. The salad nicoise earlier in August was tremendous but since the menu has stagnated again. They plan for weekenders and change the menu very rarely which is a shame. The Halibut was okay. I had an Ahi special one night that was good. The Sashimi is reliable although only as fresh as one expects in the Sierras. The smoked trout is always a delight and the corn chowder is nice. We go for the view & the vibe. The bartenders are fun. Service erratic. The food needs an injection of excitement - it's a bit tired. The Japanese infusion has grown trite. Perhaps it's time for a trip to Japan?

I am giving the restaurant 3 stars primarily because we have been several year customers and the food was adequate. The location is lovely and restaurant ambiance very nice. Our particular dinner experience this time was waiting for the hostess to appear for >5 minutes and being sat at a cramped table set for 6 although our reservation was for 5. The scallop appetizer was terrible. Truffle fries without truffle. Sole and halibut cheek entrees were very good. Our waitress did not appear to know or feel comfortable with the menu. The wine list ridiculous. Lowest Cabernet pricing in the low $90s. Desserts average. Basically a mediocre meal for a hefty price tag!
