“Tapas style menu & great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

I've been here a few time while on business travel and it is a great place to share a meal with friends/coworkers. It has a great atmosphere with big couches & chairs in one part of the dinning room. I really enjoyed the mini martini flight & the cheese plate. They have great tapas style dishes to share as well.

“BEAUTIFUL RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We visited Root 246 for the first time during the Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant week event. I had heard about it quite a bit but had never been there. We were very impressed. While the exterior is unassuming that all changed when we walked in. It's absolutely beautiful inside. Fantastic interior design and very comfortable. The entire staff was polished and well trained and the food was very good. Will return for sure.

“Clearly the best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Not the usual Solvang experience. Top class food, wine and service, more like LA than rural Santa Barbara county.
