Request patio if you want a good view or window..GREAT bistro style food. Beautiful plating...Carefully thought out appetizers and entrees. Both romantic and charming and a bit of old school charm. Look forward to going again next trip..

Ordering the gnocchi dish we expected the perfect egg as advertised. What we got was a glutinous, gelatinous egg with raw to under-cooked egg whites.. When we mentioned this to our waitress she told us that the were cooked sous vide and that is how they were supposed to be. Anybody who has cooked sous vide once knows that egg whites are impossible. Apart from this the setting is great and the rest of the food was excellent. We should mention not to sit on the deck under the eaves of the house. A bird pooped on our table not once but twice which the waitress covered up then proceeded to wait on other tables before coming back to clean up the mess.

Our party of four had a perfect evening at Christy Hill. Our table was outstanding, out on the deck on a warm evening, looking out over Lake Tahoe. The service was excellent -- friendly and warm, with a waiter who knew the menu well. No snootiness or overblown hovering, just attentive in a not-pushy way. The food was just superb. I had the octopus small plate, the silky eggplant tomato soup, and the caesar salad with fresh grilled anchovies on top. But others in my party had the beef, the halibut, etc. Everyone was happy. Very good wine list, too, with domestic as well as imported; we sprang for a celebratory French sparkler. We liked the casual atmosphere -- no need to totter around in spikey heels -- this is TAHOE. If you want a special dinner to cap off your visit, you can't go wrong with the elegant Christy Hill.

We had dinner here recently. We were lucky to secure a table on the deck which afforded us an amazing view of the lake. Though the air was a bit hazy due to fires in No Cal, it was still beautiful.

Our food was perfectly prepared and presented. This is one of those places where you get what you pay for. Our waiter was very gracious and did a great job helping us with wine selection.

This will be our go-to place when on the north shore. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

I don't know what was up with our waiter. We set out to have a nice romantic dinner for our anniversary. The waiter was so rude in two short stops at our table that we cancelled our drink order and left the restaurant. This is something we've never done before - but we were not going to stay and be angry about a rude waiter all night on our anniversary. We had read all the reviews and decided on Christy Hill weeks before our anniversary, making a reservation through Open Table. I have no idea how the food is or the drinks, but this particular male waiter working the evening of 7.27.2018 needs to go to remedial customer service classes. We did have a wonderful time at a bar table without a reservation at Garwoods after we left Christy Hill. The waitress was busy, but did a great job, was very friendly, and got a big, big tip! To quote Julia Roberts, " Big mistake! Big mistake - HUGE!!" on the part of the waiter at Christy Hill.
