A peaceful and relaxed stay

The Mirabelle is a quaint little B&B just a block off the main street. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is very good and the afternoon wine and cheese on the front courtyard made our stay very pleasant. Dinner at Aly's Restaurant, located... read more

To be sure, Mirabelle is a lovely, elegant restaurant housed in what appears to be a beautiful luxury inn. Our waiter was attentive and professional. However the food, while tasty and carefully prepared, arrived in portion sizes fit for a toddler. I am no stranger to fine restaurants and smaller portions, in fact, most restaurant appetizers are enough of a... More

The service was very nice but the food left much to be desired. The fried gnocchii were cold, greasy and chewy (almost life they were defrosted). The remaining dishes were fair, something I have done at home. AND they had no liquor license yet so we had no champagne or wine for dinner (our anniversary). We were quite disappointed but... More

I was just reviewing my Visa bill and found a $15 charge for Mirabelle Inn dated August 14. We dined there on August 8 and already paid $111 for a dinner for two. This excluded wine since they had no liquor license and we had skipped dessert because the service had been so slow. We had spent well over two... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for joining us at the Mirabelle, we appreciate your patronage and feedback. I wanted to take a moment to explain why you had an additional charge. We have a new credit card processor that reads card with the new microchips. Cards that have microchips once processed cannot have the gratuities adjusted after they have been rung... More

First off, the service is fantastic. Fine dining service is tough to come by in some places, and Solvang is one of them. Mirabelle is the exception. Excellent service, from the host through the guy chasing you out at close. Food is fantastic, with a focus on local ingredient prepared well, with strong French influences. Every dish I've had was...

We visited Mirabelle again last night for a special occasion. We each had the Prix Fix 5 course dinner and left so happy! Despite the place being really busy, Richard Bruce - the owner - and his small staff gave us a warm welcome and detailed attention for over 2 1/2 hours. The chef is amazing and has strong experience... More

We visited Mirabelle for dinner and decided to have the 4-course tasting menu. The lobster and scallop from the first two courses were cooked well, but the accompaniments missed the mark a bit. The kitchen is clearly trying to put out sophisticated cuisine, but it was not hitting this target with any of the courses. While the wine pairing was... More
