We were staying at the Santa Ynez Inn for two nights, and decided to have dinner right next door at the Vineyard House Restaurant. What a lovely evening! During the summer, they have live music every Wednesday--starting at 6:30, and I think they ended around 8:00. Music was a nice background of Frank Sinatra-type songs, soft enough to enjoy without overpowering our conversation. When we made our reservation we were told no tables were available where the music group was playing, but it turned out the hostess moved us to a table there when she saw some folks left earlier than expected. The service was great, except that our waitress knew nothing about the wine that was "featured" which seemed a little strange in wine country. We ordered Jake's salmon and it was delicious--we shared the entree after two deliciious salads. This was a romantic, relaxed, delightful evening...we definitely will return next time we're in Santa Ynez Valley.
