Stayed nearby over Independence Day weekend, and had dinner here the first night. The experience was so good we cancelled our reservation the final evening at a much more expensive restaurant and returned to Blue Angel. First night: very good food, very good service. Second night: Same tasty food, but very slow, very disorganized service. To be fair, it was busier the second evening, but the staff was significantly more in the weeds than the situation dictated. Our favorite dishes were the miso glazed salmon and the cioppino. With more experience/training/organization, the service shortcomings should no longer keep Blue Angel Cafe from being great.

It's not encouraging to enter a restaurant that is half empty and have the server yell "it's gonna be awhile" as she bustles out the door to serve the al fresco diners. And she was right. It took about 15 minutes to get something to drink and have her take the order. The food that arrived about 20 minutes later was only fair. Two salads, a wrap sandwich, a burger and drinks ran just over $90. Halfway through our meal about 30 cyclers, apparently on a group tour, surged in through the back door. Boisterousness ensued.

We ate here twice during our stay by Lake Tahoe. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, the first time we went we elected to sit inside which was very comfortable and the next time we sat outside. On both occasions the food was good and the service fine with friendly staff. Would recommend.

The seating was tight, the pace relaxed--service a little slow. Prices a little expensive. Food was excellent. I had a chicken curry salad on a bed of greens, the small portion, for $9. My husband had hamburger and fries for about $15.
Since it was very crowded and we are on vacation, after all, we didn't mind the wait.
