The welcome was as warm and delightful as the meal, which was excellent. This log cabin gem sits on the California/Nevada state line near the main "highway" linking the states. The menu selection was very good, the starting blended zucchini soups was very tasty, the main salad was very healthy, fresh and abundant with field greens, watermelon radishes, mandarin oranges...

We had a date night at this "best place to take a date for 17-years" restaurant. The cabin is original and lovely. The history is fascinating. The staff can answer so many questions! They decorate with local artists and pieces are for sale! The food...oh my. QUITE good! We had some of the best steak ever. The wine was lovely,... More

We had a wonderful dinner in the warm and cozy log cabin restaurant. I had the scallops and my husband had the sole special. Both were delicious. We had great service from our waiter named Todd. It was a wonderful experience.

When we book a trip to Tahoe the thing we lock in immediately after a place to stay is a reservation at The Soule Domain. Everything's yummy on the seasonal menu and the nightly specials are exciting. They have fun with spice. It's always a treat to snuggle in at this uncrowded, off-the-beaten-bath gem.

I realized I have been to this place so many times but never wrote the review. It is a major dereliction of duty! This place has to be in the top 3 restaurants I ever visited in my life.

We have found a new restaurant that is tops in all restaurants we have visited in all cities that I have posted. Not only is the food exquisite but the service and ambiance was perfect.

On a cold, dark Monday night in early December, we thought we'd finally try Soule Domain. We'd seen the restaurant for years and wondered about it. Looked at the reviews, read the menu, spotted a nice seasonal discount and decided to take the plunge, without a reservation. Who would think that a Monday night in early December would be busy...

Wonderful. Solid menu that has more 'formal' dishes that other places nearby. The owners (brothers) have complete control over the menu and show it. Proud of ingredients, etc. We had one person in the group who had an allergy issue, and they really worked hard to help her find something off the menu. I would go 50 miles out of... More

This is one of our absolute favorites anywhere on Lake Tahoe. The food is wonderful with unique recipe additions setting the dishes apart from other restaurants. Their deserts are to die for (be sure and try the white chocolate and strawberry mousse). The service is impeccable. This is a very small intimate setting (50 person capacity) so reservations are important.... More
