About the restaurant
A memorable dining experience awaits you as you enter the Christy Hill Restaurant in the center of Tahoe City. The restaurant sits on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe on an elevated embankment offering diners a panoramic vista. The intimate setting offers guests a view that is only upstaged by the cuisine, wine and service. Spectacular sunsets that can be seen from every table is just one of the many reasons that Christy Hill was voted "Most Romantic Restaurant" and "North Lake Tahoe's Iconic Restaurants with World-Class Views" by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Executive Chef, Luis Vallin, focuses on sustainability and innovation, supporting local merchants and farmers. The thoughtful and playful menu pays homage to the tradition of Christy Hill while continuing to uplift and propel the cuisine and restaurant into exciting new territory.

Christy Hill is our favorite restaurant in the North Tahoe area. The quality of their cuisine is outstanding, the wine list is excellent, the wait staff is professional and friendly, the staff is welcoming and personal, and the view is unsurpassed. We have eaten at Michelin Star restaurants, and Christy Hill is right up there with them.

The food, service, and ambiance were all exceptional. It's definitely the kind of meal you save for a special occasion (took us four hours from start to finish!), but we'll certainly be back.

My wife wanted to go here for her birthday and even wanted to bring the kids with us. Everything was amazing. Easy parking and reservation was on time. There’s a kids playground a minute walk away so kids can go play there after dinner and adults can chill. I had the millionaire burger and so did my 11yr old It was cooked perfectly. Wife had salmon that she absolutely loved. Our 8yr old had cheese pizza. Had to try it. Was great also. We shared a butter cake with ice cream for dessert. Highly recommend. Definitely put this restaurant on your special occasion list.

About the restaurant
Duke’s is known for its exceptional prime US steaks and an incomparable wine cellar. Our Carson City location has been named “Best Steak” year after year in the Nevada Appeal Best Of poll. At Duke’s, you can dine your style—in the intimate restaurant, at the energetic bar and lounge, or fireside in the private dining room. We can also accommodate special events. Duke’s takes details to the next level. Enter through an arched portal with hand glazed tile. Admire our wine collection, artfully tucked into the walls. And if you think that sounds special, wait until you try the food.
The knowledgeable staff at Duke’s can recommend the perfect wine and cocktail pairings to make your meal magnificent. When it comes to entrees, our chefs and servers all have their favorites…from the Chilean sea bass baked en papillote, to the amazing braised short rib, to our Steak Diane. Find your favorite but save room for dessert!

Wonderful dinner at the Atlantis Steakhouse. Our party of 4 had Steak Diane ( excellent), shrimp scampi ( excellent), t- bone special with shrimp ( good - shrimp were a bit rubbery), filet ( excellent). The lobster bisque and French onion soup were superb! Only disappointment was the green bean and fingerling potatoes which were soggy and almost cold. Still worth every penny. Service was spectacular!
