Rustic log cabin with cozy ambience. Very friendly waitstaff. Varied menu with several specials, some small plates. Peppercorn sauce on the steak was incredible. Don't forget the homemade ice cream or Queen of Sheba flour less chocolate cake! Not inexpensive.

Soule Domain is by far our favorite restaurant in the Lake Tahoe area. It is a small, cozy log cabin which serves a wonderful array of well-prepared meals in an intimate setting. We just love it and go whenever we are in Tahoe!

Overall, we had a great experience, as the 4 stars would indicate. The setting is quite small--inside a cabin. Maybe 8 tables in total, but don't sit at the 3 by the bathroom. So, basically 5 tables. The menu is great, and the food is...More
