Hollins House - Pasatiempo Golf Club
An evening at Hollins HouseA beautiful setting, an intriguing menu and pleasant, efficient and courteous servuce.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Visit ReportOur res was made with a request for possible table by the window. We were put in the dark bar instead of in the beautiful, light dining room where multiple tables were vacant. I asked if our party could be re-positioned and they accommodated us readily. They did a wonderful job splitting salads and entrees for our 2 elderly mothers. Everyone was happy with their food choices, and we will definitely return soon with the hope of dining out on the patio deck on a clear day.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than ever!We enjoyed eating in the bar. The scene was lively and everyone was happy to be at Hollins. The food was especially good and I would say it was better than ever. We had cocktails and then the prime rib. The dinning room is nice and quiet if you want a more reserved atmosphere. The view is outstanding.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMShhhhhhh, It's a SecretThis small restaurant at the top of the hill, overlooking the golf course, is virtually unknown to anyone but locals. The view of Santa Cruz and the Bay alone is worth the trip, but it also has a nice selection of local wines to be enjoyed out on the patio. The regular menu is small, with a few specials each night, but each item is excellently prepared. On our last visit, I had truffle gnocchi, melt-in-your-mouth light with artichoke hearts and mushrooms - absolutely delicious. They always have a nice balance of fish, meat and vegetarian choices. Oh, and the French onion soup is extraordinary - thank goodness it's on the regular menu!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat outdoor brunchExcellent food with delicious desserts. The best buffet in Santa Cruz county! Very attentive staff. i even received a lesson in how to make the perfect omelet. The perfect setting for a special event or romantic get-away.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceThe was enough variety in the menu so there were choices for all of our dietary tastes. They were wonderful about letting us split side dishes. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive without hovering. All the dishes we ate were very attractively served and very tasty.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Santa CruzThis is the perfect venue.
