Cool Breeze Charm and Good Food

The food was good. We had the special, which was a quiche with Angus beef. The crust was flaky and delicious. The server was very kind and attentive to our needs.

We had a wonderful dinner at The Vineyard House. They have a versatile menu that would satisfy anyones palate. Their wine list is good and prices very reasonable. Our service was very good. The hostess was very pleasant and Lonnie our waitress was great. She was very friendly and a pleasure.

Sort of a homy place and I think that might be why more people don't think about stopping here, but the service is fantastic and the food is prepared perfectly...Nice variety on the menu and even the simple hamburger is fantastic...you might ask to have the Remoulade sauce to dip your fries in...really yummy! They also have a great Sunday... More

A quaint house with in a lovely setting, The Vineyard House offers great food at a reasonable price and excellent service. I had a chicken gorgonzola salad that was crisp and filled with flavors. The dressing was just right - not too heavy. The service was friendly and professional. We were there for lunch and sat outside, enjoying the view... More

This is lovely place to dine. I love the atmosphere and the food. You can choose to eat out on their heated deck or inside the restaurant which is old world charm. The food is plentiful, fresh and great.

We were a party of 10, all adults. The service was very professional. Spinach salad was delicious, as was the pozole. My taste of duck and steak were both fantastic. I highly recommend Vineyard House if you're in the SY Valley!

Unlike many of the 'restaurants' in the Solvang / Santa Ynez area, the Vineyard House Restaurant is actually a restaurant, serving excellent food that is obviously prepared by a chef rather than a cook. We went on a mid-week night and although it was a little cool in the early evening, we elected to sit on the beautiful deck. There... More

We sat on the outside deck which was lovely, but unfortunately the food was average at best. My spinach salad came out on a small app plate, which proved difficult to eat & flicked pine nuts over the table and into my purse! The pazole was OK and our waitress was pleasant. Wished I could have given more stars, but... More

The food and service is always good. They have a wonderful deck and we feel like we have gone on vacation even though we live in Santa Ynez when we eat here.
