Honestly, for anyone visiting Lake Tahoe, make this a ‘must visit’. Ambience, menu, food, wine, staff (Steven knows EVERYTHING - every ingredient, every flavour, the restaurant’s 30 year history) - it’s simply brilliant. By a huge margin, the best meal we ate in a brilliant...More

What can I say – I guess, just, don’t bother. We went there anticipating a wonderful dinner considering all the recommendations we were given by the locals & tourists alike. I found the food to be a bit too drowned in sauces for my liking...More

Souls Domain has been around for a long time. It’s a cozy log cabin with not more than 20 tables. The food is delicious, the service fantastic and the wine list pretty extensive for a small place. There is always something delightful on the menu...More

Friends who had visited Lake Tahoe earlier this year recommended this restaurant but didn't prepare us for the overwhelming Charm & Enchantment factor. It's a beautiful spot hidden in Kings Beach directly behind the downright ugly but unrelated Tahoe Biltmore Hotel and Casino. The cozy...More

We had dinner here with some friends who live in the area and it definitely had a local flair. The service was excellent, the food good, but the log cabin is a bit beat up and funky. Beware of the stairs into the women's restroom,...More

This is a cozy little dining spot with very good food, great table service, and an extensive wine list. The duck dish and the scallop dish were both very good. The escargot appetizer I would rate a 7 out of 10 but the bread pudding...More
