“Different - but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2010

My daughter and I had lunch at the Solvang Restaurant in March. We shared the sausage platter: 4 different kinds of sausage, mashed potatoes & gravy, red cabbage, and sauerkraut for $15.00. Combination was odd to our american palates but we wanted to experience Danish cuisine. You don't go to Denmark to eat american food :) Service was quick but a little impersonal, and our beverage glasses were refilled without asking.

“Not worth it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2010

We went here, figuring we should at least have abelskivar in Solvang. They took a long time to arrive, during which time the waitresses never refilled our coffee, even though the place was practically empty. And we got to observe how they rolled their eyes at tourists behind their backs. Rude. Coffee tasted like hot dish water anyway. Abelskivar were fresh and hot. Good if you like things like heavy, sweet jelly doughnuts.

“Service was terrible....staff rude!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2010

My husband and I visited this restaurant in November, 2009 and the staff were rude and unattentive. I tried to ask questions about the ebelskivers and received frosty replies. Food ok but atmosphere sucked. I never want to return.

“Red Viking, small but authentic Danish Restaurant, Solvang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2009

We had the small smorgasbord for $14 and it seemed authentic and delicious. With pate, real Danish thin, flat bread, Danish creams, peas and carrots in cream, what might be seen as "non-traditional American" and we love it.

You can also order an American hamburger at the same place, so everyone can agree on something...

“Food Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2009

We were looking for a place that was open for dinner (near 6pm) and this was one of the places still open. The menu had something for everyone. Food was okay decent and at a good price. The owner came and talked to us and answered our tourist questions. So an A+ for the attention to service. Did not try the .Aebleskivers, but everyone I talked to say's this is the place to go!
