Valentine’s Day 2017 | Tahoe City California
It is Tuesday, February 14, 2017, Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’ve had my fair share of alone, and disappointing Valentine’s Days over the years, but not today! Today, I was spoiled!
My Sweetheart delivered a dozen pink, purple, and red roses, along with chocolate covered strawberries.
It melted my heart that after thirteen years of being together, he still made the effort to say “Be my Valentine” – sweet, romantic, and thrilled to be surprised and appreciated!
We’re staying in for dinner this year, but if you’ll be dining out, and if you haven’t made your romantic dinner plans for tonight, or for the upcoming holiday ski President’s weekend, now is the time to pick up the phone and make reservations!
Perhaps you’re a true romantic and you’ve already made your plans for your Sweetheart and you’re all set for tonight, but if you’ll be up in the greater Tahoe City, or maybe you’re making a week out of the holiday, either way you may want some ideas on where to go for that romantic dinner.
If you’ll be in North Lake Tahoe over the next couple of weeks, or on Valentine’s Day, here are a few of my favorite romantic area restaurants that are always a hit for dinner.
Graham’s – 1650 Squaw Valley Road, Olympic Valley, CA Reservations 530.581.0454 www.dinewine.com
Graham’s offers unique California cuisine with a European influence. They offer a full bar and an extensive world class, award winning wine list with over 800 bottles to choose from.
The atmosphere is always inviting and warm with white table linens, candle light, and during the winter you’ll enjoy the warmth and glow of the wood burning fireplaces.
We love going to Graham’s and having dinner at the bar. It’s casual, fun, and the conversation is always lively at the bar (tip – reservations required for the bar as seating is limited and always fills up fast). The staff is very attentive, and they have no problems catering to my vegetarian needs!
Graham’s menu does vary with the seasons and they always have something special on the menu. Graham’s is located very close to the Village at Squaw Valley and the Resort at Squaw Creek. Reservations are always highly recommended for this local area favorite, especially on the weekends and holidays.
Soule Domain – 9983 Cove Street, Crystal Bay, CA Reservations 530.546.7529 www.SouleDomain.com
Soule Domain offers a variety of California cuisine. This cozy and romantic restaurant is set in a Tahoe log cabin with a rock fireplace. You’ll find the mountain charm of this place inviting and romantic.
Soule Domain is located just past Kings Beach, at the California / Nevada Stateline in Crystal Bay. Seating is very limited and reservations are highly recommended for this romantic local favorite.
Christy Hill – 115 Grove Street, Tahoe City, California Reservations 530.583.8551 www.ChristyHill.com
Christy Hill offers a variety of seasonal California cuisine with a French influence. They have an extensive wine list and a nice selection of wines by the glass. Dinner here is very romantic. If you get there early enough, you can enjoy the alpenglow on Lake Tahoe.
If you want to see the Alpenglow (amazing colors of rose gold, violet, fuchsia, and sunset colors) today on Valentine’s Day, you need to be there before 5:30 p.m. as sunset comes early to our area at this time of year. If you find yourself reading this post this summer, try and get there about 30 minutes before the sun is scheduled to set. Well worth the extra effort to time it to see the Alpenglow!
This intimate lakeside restaurant offers wonderful views of Lake Tahoe perfect for a romantic evening. Christy Hill is located in the heart of downtown Tahoe City, California. Reservations are highly recommended for this popular lake view restaurant.
All three restaurants are always a great place to celebrate love, romance, or just being here in the greater Tahoe City – North Lake Tahoe!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
If you’re in the mood for a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day, or the upcoming holiday weekend in the greater Tahoe City – North Lake Tahoe, California area, now is the time to make your dinner reservations!
