At Wolfdale’s we use Cuisine Unique to describe our food and the personality of our restaurant. Since opening in 1978 we have developed a style of East-West cuisine and professional service that illustrates our reputation for, and dedication to, excellence. Our talented staff has an insatiable appetite for learning precisely what our guests enjoy. Creativity stemming from the basic skills of tradition is the challenge we love and readily embrace. Our high standards have been, and will remain our style throughout the years.

The theme in the Wolfdale’s kitchen has been Fresh Food, Simply Prepared, since our first day. Dishes are prepared with respect by direct and uncomplicated cooking techniques. Our culinary fundamentals are essentially Asian and European, while our spirit is California. Fresh and simple is the state of our art, often causing us to work harder and pay more to consistently prepare and present an outstanding product.
Our menu and wine selection changes frequently to reflect the availability of fresh ingredients and newly released vintages. We are always looking for that inspiring new element, new technique, and unconventional combination, which our flexible menu facilitates. Frequent changes can also be seen in our unique dinnerware and the artwork we display. Change keeps us vibrant and thrilled about cooking. Motivated,    
healthy chefs make exciting, healthy food. We honor the opportunity to present Cuisine Unique to our guests.

Wolfdale’s takes pride in the art of transformation; we transform food into cuisine, deficiency into balance, and meals into memories. Our guests are important to us, often becoming friends, with us and with each other. We hold in high regard the opportunity to help celebrate their special occasions.

Our location is one of our assets… take a step up to the mountains, the majesty of the crystal clear lake, the sweet alpine air and the brilliant sunshine. Dine with us at Wolfdale’s. We welcome the exposure only to fulfill ourselves.
