When we visit Solvang we always reserve a table at Root 246 for champagne brunch. They provide a wide variety of quality food. We are both vegetarian and left feeling plenty full.

Loved this restaurant. Solvang has many restaurants but none that I would call gourmet, until I found Root 246. The cocktails were fabulous and the meal was wonderful. Farm to table food, I had the scallops and they were excellent. We also had the flat iron steak at our table and it was done perfectly! Service was great. So happy that there is this new(ish) addition to the restaurants in Solvang!

Originally we wanted to visit Mirabella restaurant, however they are open only few days a week. We were recommended by owner of former to go to Root 246. It has very modern and stylish design. We stayed in bar area as our son wanted to watch basketball on TV screen. The choice of food is very good and wine list is impressive. Our son gone for burger (he had aim to try as many of them in States as possible), I has scallops and my husband had fish. The food was exceptional!

We had the Jiridot Chicken and a Peruvian Vegan dish which were both outstanding. Service and atmosphere were both impeccable.

Bar and dining rooms are classy and contemporary. Some of the seating for 2 in the rearmost room will put you close to other couples though...something to be aware of if you're not interested in interacting with others.

The chicken dish and flat iron steak were both excellent entrees, and various salads we tried were very good. The grilled pepper appetizer was interesting and good. Guacamole was average only. The mashed potatoes were a superior side dish. The most disappointing main dish was the vegetarian ravioli. Disappointing with little flavor. For dessert the bananas foster was a cake with the chilled syrup poured over, and some type of fluffy ice cream. It was a let down. The donut holes were very good.

Our server was against splitting a table of 6 into separate checks. We didn't understand this until later when we got the tab and realized for a table of 6 she got a guaranteed 20% tip. Aside from her screwing up the drink order, the service was fine. We'd have given her 20%. But when we tried to pay the check with several credit cards (we named how much to put on each one) it was a disaster, and it was beyond her capability to fix. Once again, the customers had to make all kinds of concessions to fix the problem, and wasted at least 30 extra minutes. It would have been much simpler if she'd just split the check amongst the couples there in the first place. Based upon this, if you dine here I'd be aggressive at requesting split checks when you first arrive. Otherwise you may be in for aggravation when it comes time to pay the bill. The bus service was quick to refill water glasses and remove dishes.
