Enjoyable lunch on the patio

We had a relaxing, delicious lunch here and enjoyed the charming atmosphere outside on the patio. Service was friendly and attentive. We started with really fantastic cocktails and then had an ahi tuna sandwich, and a great salad with quinoa, butternut squash, goat cheese, etc. Prices seemed... read more

View was beautiful, wonderful wine list and attentive service. However, the kitchen let us down. Rack of lamb was ordered medium rare but showed up medium and dry. Bass was ok, nothing special. Desert was supposed to be devil cake, no taste at all. Cookies and cream ice cream saved the plate. Certainly not worth the money. Would expect better... More

I wanted to like this place more than I did. AAA gives it a 4-star rating,but I don't think it's that good. The decor is nice, but the menue is somewhat limited. The wine list is a tome that would take 15 minutes to get through. I ordered the crispy chicken confit with sweet potatoes. The chicken was superb. The... More

We were seated right away at a very nice table. While the waitstaff was relatively young they were very attentive, knowledgeable and not intrusive. Ordered a nice Barolo and the sommelier decanted it and discussed the vintner. Food was very good and a great experience, all in all.

Everything was just perfect, the setting, the service and outstanding food. We have enjoyed "The Grill" several times and will return as often as possible.

We have been coming here for years and have always loved it, but we will not be in a rush to return. Since the renovation/expansion the place has lost it's boutique feel and picked up a Marriott vibe instead. The old bar area with outdoor fireplace has been opened up and the fireplace is gone. When we went last November... More

Recently had the Hacienda Del Sol Sunday Brunch. It was awesome! and we are super picky diners. They did not over butter or over salt the food which is a big no no with us. Most everything was fresh, flavorful and delicious. The eggs benedict--you could tell the egg was super fresh and the hollandaise sauce was not overly buttery... More

Hacienda del Sol is a pleasure to simply walk in the door. Dinner in The Grill was definitely 'special occasion' worthy. The service was the way it should be: non-intrusive and served in a slow, but timely manner. My one and only critique is that I was charged for the 'birthday dessert'. Yes, we ordered it (one for three people)... More

The expansion and renovation of the Inn has resulted in a more institutional facility. The restaurant and bar remain charming and authentic. The outdoor dining area now overlooks one of the newly constructed buildings. The area is cold and uninviting. The service at the Inn has always been a little spotty. The loose of the character has magnified the service... More

The Hacienda del Sol is always a good idea for lunch, Great food and service at fair prices. The grounds are Southwestern elegance at its best. The new additions are almost complete (Spring 2016) and do not interfere with the ambiance. The mountain and city views on the way up are worth a trip by it self. Never disappointed.
