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.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Duke's, and it was an unforgettable experience. A heartfelt thank you to Armen, the manager, for ensuring everything was perfect, to our server for their attentive and friendly service, and to the busser who kept our table immaculate throughout the night. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the ambiance was just right for a memorable celebration. Highly recommended

This meal was one of the best meals I've ever had in my life (not just the best in Tahoe). From start to finish, every detail was very well considered. Delicious, especially the wagyu, and aesthetically pleasing. I've experienced very expensive meals before, after which I've felt like a fool, but this one made me feel cared for.

The food was good and the service was very nice. We both had the shortribs and they were cooked nicely, with a lot of flavor and the meat was really tender. The wine was wonderful. We chose a bottle that was listed as a recommneded pic from the wine list. The price point was very affordable and we were not disappointed! The waitstaff was very attentive, but we were thrown off by the staff wearing name tags? It seemed to cheapen the experience somewhat? It kind of felt a little like a cafateria and not a fine dinning resturaunt, so they could loose the tacky nametags. Seeing how that is my only complaint, we would definetly return.

About the restaurant
The Depot is located in Reno, Nevada and offers a restaurant as well as a craft brewery and distillery. This restaurant uses traditions from the past but puts an innovative spin to them. The drink menu is vast and includes unique cocktails like the silver donkey, with whiskey, honey, lime, St. Germain liqueur and ginger beer. Draft beers at The Depot also run the gamut from traditional to modern. The ranch hand is an excellent choice for those who enjoy a light malt.



The Depot provides many options for snacking or eating. Some light snacks offered are the poutine, cornbread fritters and pork belly tacos. Those looking for a bit more can try the fisherman's stew, lamb shank or the vegetarian stuffed poblanos.

Whenever I am in town, always have dinner here. Great service and extraordinary food. Service prompt, continuous and impeccable. Food very good. Started with fried calamari which could be better if they used less batter. The prime rib was good but the lamb chops was fantastic. 4 meaty chops , delicious and very tasty considering how it is prepped. All in all, a very good experience.

Was nice to go somewhere different for a change with my husband. We have 2 other restaurants that are our favorite to go to when we’re here without kids. They’re nice and a lil to A LOT pricey. Maggie’s is in that range as well but the food was very good and the service was perfect. Like the ambience and the indoor/outdoor vibe. And the hotel its attached to is beautiful as well. Definitely will recommend to my friends and family.
