Welcome to Za’s Lakefront where we offer tasty bites, liquid delights, and awesome sights with the best views in North Lake Tahoe. In 1988 the original Za’s opened in Tahoe City in a cozy spot welcoming families and friends to enjoy a meal together. This Za’s closed in 2004 for owner and chef Jonny to take his culinary talents on the road as a personal chef for the John Force Race Team. The decision that it was time to reopen Za’s in it’s original location was made in 2013 mixing old favorites with new dishes inspired by travels. In the Summer of 2018 Za’s moved to a beautiful new lakefront location tripling the dining size. We invite you to come and enjoy a private event at Za’s Lakefront from the Upstairs View Room, Lakeside Patio, Side Bar, and Main Dining Room for events of all types and sizes. We look forward to sharing our love of Tahoe, family and food in a breathtaking location.

Sincerely, Jonny Roscher
Owner & Head Chef
