My spouse and I have been to this restaurant several times as a couple and with friends. We've also visited other restaurants in the Lompoc Valley and surrounding communities, so we know the field pretty well. This place stands up well in comparison with much pricier restaurants in the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Barbara. The menu items are imaginative and well-prepared with fresh local ingredients. The sauces are a particular strength of this restaurant. The service is excellent and the owner, Sonseeah Gil, has always been there to visit with her diners. It's obvious that Restaurant 4300 is more than just a business for Sonseeah; if her patrons are happy, she's delighted. Our favorite day to go is Sunday when there are typically 2-3 menu offerings, each a complete three-course meal for a very reasonable set price (currently $18). There's a very fine wine and beer selection, too, featuring local brands. It's truly an excellent restaurant.
