We had a wonderful dinner at Manzanita. Our servers, Sara and Spencer, were very personable, and provided excellent service. The manager, Zach, has clearly done a great job leading a team that reflects the service expected at a Ritz restaurant and also the friendliness of Tahoe. The cauliflower soup with truffles is a perfect starter, and the roasted beat salad... More

Stopped in for a drink at the bar and stayed for a bite to eat. The service was very and our bartenders were friendly and attentive. There was live music and we could watch the basketball game at the same time, although the staff do tend to stand in front of the tv so you have to ask them to... More

A pretty short menu but with unremarkable but well prepared food and excellent service. The downside is it is very noisy and not great for its price point. The really unfortunate part are the majority of guest who seem to encourage their children to behave poorly based on their own behavior and poor manners.

We had the chef's tasting menu and ate here for several lunches. This is a truly outstanding restaurant in every respect. The wine list is suburb and the variety and quality of the food is great. The fresh fish options are great as are the steaks. The best is the great service and the attentiveness of the staff. Not too... More

The food wasn't extraordinary and the menu had pretty standard fare. I will say that the service was very good and was the standout of the entire experience.

Our experience here was worth sharing with others. We sat near the fireplace and were served by Brigitte. She was extremely knowledgeable about the dishes, ingredients and how the dishes were prepared. She recommended the Tomahawk pork and it was fabulous-absolutely delicious, tender, and succulent. The appetizers and the desert will long be remembered as well-especially the side of home-made... More

It was dumping snow and we decided to take a drive up the hill looking for a break in the clouds and snoop around the Ritz. We settled for Manzanita to grab a late lunch. The service was outstanding (as you would expect for the Ritz) We ordered the Soup and burgers. The food was very nice and when you... More

Go for the Chef's Table 7 Course Pre-Fix Dinner. It's so worth it. Chef Mark goes through each dish personally with you and will tailor the menu around any food restrictions or aversions you or your guests have. It was truly a memorable and exceptional dinning experience.

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice quick dinner with a few rounds of awesome sidecar cocktails after being on the slopes all day, we opted to share a pizza which was perfect for us. The restaurant was packed but the staff was very attentive and friendly. It's nice to have a restaurant such as Manzanita on property to... More
