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. It is simply so good because of its unique setting, romantic ambiance, highly impressive and diverse menu, excellent service and reasonable... More

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. For appetizers I had the Lobster Wontons in a Asian Shitake broth and the broth alone I wish I had the receipt. My wife had... More

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

My wife and I have eaten here many times. It is an old log cabin, maybe has 10 tables (Reservations important) owned by 2 brothers (Last name Soule). The food is always special, excellent presentation and good value. The wait staff is always the best. The wine list is small but adequate and the prices are lower than most restaurants... More

Intimate dinning in a log cabin behind Biltmore Casino. Good fresh ingredients but too much going in with the dishes for my taste.
