The restaurant is small with limited seating. CALL FOR A RESERVATION! 2 of 3 of us gave the food a 5. I thought the duck was a bit dry, under-seasoned and cooked medium rare. It rated a 2. So 4 stars for our table's overall rating. The prices were in line for the type of food and restaurant. Not a... More

We had an amazing dinner at Christy Hill. The atmosphere is fantastic with beautiful views of the lake. The food is positively delicious with a unique preparation and incredible presentation. We had scallops that were amazing. Our entrees included black cod, lamb medallions and hanger steak. All wonderful! The staff is conscientious and vibe elegant.

On a clear evening, Christy Hill had a beautiful view of the Lake with the snowy mountain background. The restaurant is small so every table has the great view (but reservations are a must for the weekend). There is even an outdoor patio but it was still too cold for us to enjoy (I did see a few guests bring... More

We had high expectations for their food. It was a special occasion and with the prices they charge for their dishes, we were looking forward to a great meal. None of the dishes were adequately prepared or tasted up to par. Foie Gras had a burnt crust, which gave it a bitter aftertaste, the gnocchi were nestled in a broth... More

Christy Hill is a perfect setting for a lakeside dinner. The views are gorgeous and there really is not a bad seat in the restaurant. The food was delicious. We had the seared foie gras and octopus starters, both of which were excellent. The flavors were unique and all the ingredients very fresh. For dinner, the chicken/shrimp etoufee is a... More

This is the place to be for a quiet happy hour. Friendly, professional service. We enjoyed a glass of wine, the Caesar salad and a cheese platter. Perfect respite after an afternoon of cross country skiing
