Our party of 6 plus an infant celebrated my father’s birthday here tonight- and we’re sure glad we did. We were a bit uneasy about coming since ours was an outdoor reservation and Tahoe was suddenly experiencing some rain and thunder. But upon arrival felt...much at ease. The seating area was lovely, shielded, and warm due to a heat lamp. Steve was our server and very much a pro. Great service throughout the evening. The food came speedily as well. Our kids enjoyed the pasta with cheese. The bread was great, and corn soup yummy. Lobster wontons were very tasty. The vegan noodle dish received high praise, as did the Opah with spicy sauce. I absolutely loved the filet mignon with pepper sauce. Chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert was a crowd pleaser. Definitely now up there with our favorite restaurants that we’ll remember fondly. Of course not everyone will agree on food…but this experience was such an A+ that frankly anyone giving this restaurant less than 5 stars has lost some credibility in my book. Thank you for such a memorable meal. Perfect birthday evening.More

The outside setting and our server was just lovely when we saw her - but the food went from sad to terrible. The wonton came in a dishwater colored broth with a sauce that did not hang together The other appetizers were completely unimpressive. The...main courses were VERY disappointing. Our friends scallops were over cooked, the pasta was gluggy, - a sign the cream sauce had not been freshly made. But the worst was my husbands steak. It was supposed to be rare to medium rare snd was grey, very well done and difficult to cut. His potato’s were definitely old and very hard. He should have returned it but The servers had disappeared supposedly for a large party indoors. My husband often went precious for business because it is one of the few restaurants open in Tuesday within the area - but never again.More

Heading to Tahoe next weekend and called to make a reservation. First I was put on hold and hung up on. When I eventually got through, I misunderstood what the gentleman said and was treated like I was an imbecile. I decided then and there...not to make a reservation and take my money elsewhere. Businesses need to realize how important first impressions are.More

Our group of 9 was in town for a wedding at Martis Camp, and we were looking for a fun spot to eat in the days leading up to the event. We discovered Soule Domaine on this app, and it exceeded everyone’s expectations. Steve was...awesome, the food was interesting and served hot. There were four off menu specials that evening and they all sounded great making it hard to choose. I went with the scallops with pork belly...the jalapeño infused sauce was outstanding and made the dish a one of a kind item. In summary, this is the place to go for a quality dining experience. Please note, they only serve beer/wine...at very reasonable prices I might add.More

I had such fond memories of the food here years ago. I can still say that the beer and wine were high quality and reasonably priced. We also love the owners and the servers. I give them credit for having vegan options. allowing dogs outside...and the beautiful setting. However, we would not recommend the Thai curry scallops, the organic mix greens tossed in Asian Shoyu ginger vinaigrette, the noodle bowl, the vegan udon noodle bowl or the shrimp entrée.More

What a way to cap off our 11 night stay in the Tahoe area. It was the best meal of our trip. The service, atmosphere and food were all stupendous. We were concerned about dining outside given the smoke from the fires but fortunately for...us the winds helped and we got to enjoy this highlight meal without that interference. We really enjoyed everything about this experience and feel lucky to have found this place.More

We had dinner here at the recommendation of a local, we were pretty disappointed. $200+ for four dinners and three desserts. People were happy with parts of their meals, but overall it was just ok and it was not worth the money. We will not...be back.More

I'm sorry you were dissapointed, we strive for excellence and hope that you would be stoked! We average about $60-70 person usually, food, bev, and tax....Prices are determined by food costs, offering organic ingredients drives costs up, but the bottom line is that you weren't...More
