While in the region for wine tasting we were recommended to come here for dinner. The food was okay but not great for the price we paid. The mashed potatoes almost seemed to be instant to us! We were not wowed by our dishes which is too bad. Our waitress was attentive and the wait staff did a very good job. The atmospere is good and comfortable.
We were however very disappointed that the hostess told us the booths were all spoken for. Yet a number of them never filled during the time of our meal and when another couple seated next to us requested and was moved to one we didn't feel taken care of. We travelled a long way and we have choices and this will not be one we return to.

For $25 I had two scallops with an unremarkable sauce. Also I ordered roasted vegetables for $9. I was aghast when four sprigs of steamed broccolini with what looked like a bottled cheese sauce was presented to me. Ick! What a way to ruin vegetables. My friend ordered octopus for another $25. Tougher than leather. Only one friend enjoyed the meal. She ordered macaroni and cheese. Guess we had better stick to comfort food!

2 Scallops for $25.00. Really! The ambience is nice, but prices are over the top. This is a pretty food restaurant. Small portions. Food was delivered luke warm.

We came to Solvang for a weekend of wine tasting on my girlfriends birthday. We had a great dinner at this place. The food was amazing and Janet made us feel at home. She gave us many tips on the city attractions and took good care of us. She specially helpful in accommodating my girlfriends Gluten allergy. We will definately come back again. Thank you Janet.
