Root 246 at Hotel Corque
had very high expectationshad very high expectations which were not met. Starters we had was very good but the short ribs were tasty but tough. We also had sea bass which was ok. Kale caesar salad had to much dressing.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionIt was our first time at Root 246, we were not disappointed.

The Smith Family5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Brunch, worth the drive!We love making the Sunday drive from Santa Barbara to Solvang for Root 246's brunch. The food is delicious and there is a good variety of items. Mimosas are a must! Warning, if you like to indulge, expect to spend a good 3-4 hours dining. I promise it will be worth it. We love the modern yet comfortable decor. Its a nice change from the old Dutch look of Solvang. The service is attentive, not rushed and personable. We always have a great time!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Brunch!A really nice brunch with a nice variety of fresh and well prepared delights. Orange juice fresh squeezed, french toast with apples, wonderful salad, omelette bar, nice pastries, etc. A real treat for anyone visiting Solvang on a Sunday. The Sous Chef gave us information about some of the specialty items...a pleasure. Service was very good and very friendly.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food!!!I was really impressed by this restaurant. It by far exceed our expectations. The employees were really friendly and very service oriented. The martini flights were fun and the desserts to die for. I loved the Candy Bar! I really enjoyed the entrees as well and can honestly say I have never had a better scallop. They were cooked perfectly. I would recommend Root 246 to anyone who loves food. I guarantee I will be dinning there every time I visit Solvang.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMStill great food!We hadn't eaten at Root 246 since chef Bradley Ogden had left and weren't sure what to expect. We weren't disappointed as the food was delicious, particularly the short ribs and the scallops. The only reason for my 4 star rating is that the entree portions are small in relation to the prices. It is a beautiful restaurant and we will definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining in SolvangIn a town known for its quaint Danish-themed eateries, Root 246 is an excellent fine dining experience. If it weren't 5 hours drive away, we would go there more often. The food is excellent and the service, outstanding.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Dinner!We had several friends rave about the food here so decided to try it. And I'm happy to say - they were right! Living in LA we are used to amazing cuisine but Solvang's Root 246 dished out one of the best meals I've had. The salted potatoes appetizer was simply done and delicious. The salad as well, lightly dressed greens that exuded freshness. The quinoa was the best I have had anywhere - we asked for a spoon to get every drop of the sauce. And we ended the night with fresh lime sherbet. Oh - and every bite was vegan. Amazing and beautifully presented. We ate on the patio and it was a beautiful night. Our service was impeccable. I have nothing but great things to say and recommend Root 246 highly.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for brunch. The weatherWe went for brunch. The weather was nice so we sat outside. The food was pretty good.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMterrific, top restaurant in SolvangWished we could have dined both nights we were in Solvang but they were booked w/ priv. party. Celebrated husband's birthday on a Sat. for romantic getaway to Santa Barbara area for a few nights. The service was outstanding, it was very lively, fun but not overly so. They accommodated me somewhat being gluten-free but would have liked more choices on the sharing plates (Ours) menu like if they had used a wheat-free soy sauce on the bacon wrapped dates or just a few more choices beyond olives. Also, salad came w/ croutons after I made it clear thru many questions re GF.
The main entree menu had plenty of items that all, including myself, could eat. Root 246 had, hands down, the best ambience AND service AND food quality in Solvang.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI Root for 246Love the atmosphere. We had a nice booth and a really nice waitress.

Soooo many brunches of this quality are very overpriced. The food was excellent, and the ambiance was fantastic. I will go here again...maybe for dinner. The dinner menu looked great. PS...don't forget to ask for the glass of complimentary champagne that comes with brunch. Our waitress didn't mention it.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery imaginative use of healthVery imaginative use of health conscious but delicious ingredients3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything here is made fromEverything here is made from scratch, including

There were six of us and we were seated at a round table which was great for conversation. Our server was wonderful, knowledgeable and was right on with her recommendations when asked. Great service from everyone beginning with the hostess. We loved the menu, the taste of the food, the wine list, and the overall ambience. I definitely would recommend this restaurant and can't wait to return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMRoot 246 is a real find inRoot 246 is a real find in Solvang. High concept cuisine, fine drinks and a good wine list. Menu is smaller than last visit, but that makes sense in a tourism-dominated economy. Some interesting drinks on the cocktail menu, and their basic martini was good.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRoot 246 was fabulous!!! TheRoot 246 was fabulous!!! The staff was professional, friendly and efficient. The management was outstanding. We were given a tour of the restaurant, the kitchen and met the chef. Our suggestions were noted. The food was fantastic and the presentation inviting. We will return. Our server Bethany was informative and attentive to our needs without being too intrusive. Richard, the manager was friendly and truly wanted to hear our ideas. He wants to work with the customers to create a good dining experience. We ordered the kale Caesar which was out-of-this world great, especially with the lemon essence. The spring rolls were tasty, I loved the duck inside. The scallops and hangar steak were cooked to perfection.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food in SolvangGreat food an energy.
