We sat outside for lunch after wine tasting and it was just right. Shady and relaxing. They have a great wine list, being also a wine shop. They were out of our selection and a representative of the wine shop recommended a lovely alternative. The dipping sauce is wonderful. Basically I used the bread as a dipping sauce delivery system.... More
Los Olivos is one of our favorite go-to spots when we want to get away from our home in southern California. And, Los Olivos Wine Merchant Cafe is our go-to place to eat when we do make the drive. The ambiance is cozy and casual. We've been in the winter when the fire blazes, making it feel a little like... More
The Wine Merchant is a restaurant and tasting room. It is a roomy and airy setting with a menu that offers a very nice selection of entrees, salads and desserts. My husband and I visited the restaurant twice in one weekend in 2015 (we stumbled upon the place on our own as opposed to having read reviews). The first night... More
Los Olivos Café & Wine Merchant is a great spot for lunch or dinner when visiting the Santa Ynez wine region. The atmosphere has a rustic, casual elegance. The service is great. The food is delicious. You must start with the olives. They are warm and the spice extracts the varied flavors of the different olives. The beef sugo reminded... More
The perfect place to stop in Los Olivos. Probably the best, really. Keep on eyeball on the hours, since they have a restricted menu during that 3-5 time. Well spaced tables, wonderful patio. Veggies with smoked mozzarella is a revelation. Perfect wine list.
Thank you for sharing your experience! Glad you enjoy our extensive wine list and roasted vegetable appetizer. More
I was there with colleagues tonight. The place is lovely. The terrace in the middle of the quiet and pictureste town of Los Olivos is an invitation to sit and enjoy. The extremely friendly and competent service guided us to excellent regional wines and great food. The desserts were a highlight too.
I have been visiting this restaurant every year for the last 15 years and it has been consistently great. They have a lot of wine to choose from and the food is really good. Being featured in Sideways has not changed them in the least. This a restaurant I look forward to visiting when I am in the area. If... More
Thank you for your 15 years of visiting us when in Los Olivos! We are so glad to hear that we have consistently provided an experience you look forward to every year. Thank you for sharing on Trip Advisor! More
Perfectly divine! We sat on the patio... Beautiful summer day. We shared an Olive appetizer, a pizza and Summer salad and tried a few local wines. Food was fresh, and service was just right. We really loved the dipping oil that they served with the freshly baked focaccia bread. (They sell it in the market!)
