If you've seen the movie Sideways this is where it all happened! A GREAT place to eat so many choices of wines and beer with a price range that is affordable! The food is great with many Favorite and specialties. If you just want an appetizer again you have a great many choices and the price won't bankrupt you. A... More

I haven't been back to the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe in many years (since "Sideways" ruined trips to the area for quite a while). However, I am so glad we went back on our recent trip. We had the best meal of our trip, excellent service from Karen (a veteran server at the restaurant), and a fabulous wine... More

We ended up here since the Sides didn't want to give us a table, they were too busy and didn't want any more business. We were glad that we ended up here instead, our meals were all good, and the service was great. The pizza was very tasty, as was the portobello burger and the brisket sandwich. Very good fries...

We were exhausted from a long, fun day of wine tasting on the Foxen Canyon Trail and were staying at the Fess Parker across the street. We had a beautiful room we wanted to enjoy so we decided to get take out from the Cafe. The staff was super courteous. My husband was looking for a particular Pinot to go... More

Excellent food and wine selection with wide variety of local wines available for retail purchase. Have only been here for lunch--we usually order/share mushroom pizza and caesar salad-- both freshly made and great tasting. Plenty for two. Even though this is one of many Sideways landmarks, they delivery a quality dining experience at a reasonable price .

A superb wine merchants with racks of wine along one long wall, bar in the middle and tables on the other side. Old fashioned style, just right for location. Food good, not exceptional, excellent selection of wines. Probably the best eaterie in town.

We ate at Los Olivos Wine Merchant and Cafe tonight... had a wonderful meal. The food is wonderfully prepared, and sourced locally. The staff was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had the salmon, chicken and the turkey burger . Out of ten, burger scored a 3, salmon a 5 and chicken a 5 . Perhaps we ordered the wrong things, who knows . Great wine selection though which I'd give a 10 .
