    Fiamma Cucina Rustica: Creative Cucina Rustica

    by karenincalifornia Updated Mar 16, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fiamma Cucina Rustica, Tahoe City, CA

    Fiamma's chef is incredibly creative. We had the most delicious and innovative dinner at this restaurant with an exceptionally appealing atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: One of the most delicious vegetarian dishes I've ever had - roasted acorn squash filled with wild rice risotto with wild mushrooms, dried cranberries and hazelnuts, sitting on a bed of greens with raspberry vinagrette.

    Basil (yes, basil) gelato for dessert! Mmmmm - mmmmm! Delicious!

    The Persnickety Teens devoured the shrimp and scallops fettucini with a light white wine cream and basil sauce and sun dried tomatoes.

    The restaurant also serves pizzas, a variety of pastas, roast pork tenderloin, steak, and chicken, all very creatively prepared.

    Coyote's: Innovative South of the Border Cuisine

    by karenincalifornia Updated Feb 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Coyote's Restaurant, Tahoe City, CA

    Coyote's cuisine is unique. We saw it advertised as a Mexican restaurant, but that description is somewhat misleading. The menu has a strong south of the border influence, but it also has a Carribbean bent as well.

    The food is absolutely delicious. The restaurant is small, so definitely make reservations.

    Favorite Dish: Although you will see items such as chicken mole and tamales on the menu, this is not a traditional Mexican restaurant. Creative and unique south of the border/Carribbean is how I would describe it. Everything we ordered was excellent. I will definitely eat here again when on my next trip to Tahoe City!

    Fire Sign Cafe: Good old fashioned homestyle cooking

    by karenincalifornia Written Feb 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fire Sign Cafe, Tahoe City, CA

    This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but when you see all the cars that are constantly parked outside, you know this is a happening place. Fire Sign is a popular spot with the locals in Tahoe City, and for good reason. Their homestyle breakfasts and lunches are outstanding, and they serve very healthy portions.

    Open for breakfast and lunch only. Serves delicious omelettes, burgers, sandwiches, salads, hot blackberry cobbler.

    Christy Hill Restaurant: Fabulous food and views

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lake Tahoe from Christy Hill Restaurant, CA

    Christy Hill Restaurant is located right on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. Its large plate glass windows will give you the most beautiful views as you experience their delicious cuisine. The menu is California with a French influence.

    Favorite Dish: The dinner menu includes creative game, meat, fish and fowl entrees. There is also always at least one outstanding vegetarian dish. I had roasted eggplant, wild rice, and sauteed vegetables au gratin. Very creative and very delicious!

    This photo shows the beautiful view that awaits you from the restaurant.

    Lakehouse Pizza/Eggschange: Casual lakeside eatery

    by karenincalifornia Written Feb 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lakeside restaurants in Tahoe City, CA

    This restaurant is unique because it has TWO names. In the morning it serves breakfast and calls itself the Eggschange. During lunch and dinner, it calls itself Lakehouse Pizza and Bar.

    Whatever its name, the views from this restaurant can't be beat. This photo was taken from the nearby pier. Lakehouse Pizza is the second building from the left behind the huge snow drift.

    Gold Coast Mid-Mountain Lodge: Dining al fresco at Squaw

    by karenincalifornia Written Feb 22, 2004

    Dining al fresco at Squaw Valley, CA

    Nothing beats eating outside on the slopes on a sunny day. As ski resort food goes, Squaw's is at the top 10% (which isn't saying too much, if you've sampled ski resort food). The Gold Coast Lodge at the top of the funitel has a food court with pretty decent food. These diners especially liked the High Tech Burritos and tacos. And of course, a full bar is only a few steps away making this a perfect place to take a break in the middle of the day.

    Headwall, with its challenging mogul runs, is in the background.

    The Charthouse: Great Food and Great Service

    by AIREDALE Written Nov 1, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Elegant but casual setting. The view is great during the day. The service was outstanding too. Our waiter was very personable, and put on a tableside show when he made our salads.

    Favorite Dish: They have a coconut pecan shrimp that is delish, and the spinach salad is a must have too. Also, don't forget the creme brulee for dessert!

    My place: Brunch on the terrace

    Veggie brunch foisted on meat eating family

    I dunno - maybe it's the good clean mountain air, but I actually like to cook when I am at Lake Tahoe.

    VTers: Stop by for a meal on the deck if we're there at the same time!
