    Very pricey. My lamb was not tender. Neither were the vegetables. Server did refill water but not wine glasses. To me the mark of outstanding service is when the wine glasses are always refilled by the server.

    As a local, we try to visit eateries in our area, as this location tends to be touristy. I ordered the seafood special of the day. The chef, not being skilled in preparing fresh fish, cooked the sea bass with the skin ON & did NOT remove the bloodline. An honest mistake if you aren’t aware how to cook fish. The restaurant gladly swapped out my entree with a second choice. Next time we dine, we will order the cauliflower, which according to the wait staff, was the item that gave them a Michelin rating.

    Absolutely wonderful! We selected the chef's tasting menu and the wine pairing. Everything was absolutely delicious! Our server was excellent. He paced each course perfectly not rushing us at all. The paired wine with each course was outstanding! We ate indoors and the ambiance was wonderful. We would absolutely return to this restaurant!

    It is very relaxed for the guest. We drove a long way that day and arrived about 10 minutes late to our reservation. They had no problem with the lateness. The Sommelier was our waiter and she was great with changing up our wine selections on the fly to meet our personal requests. The 5 course tasting menu was incredible!! My husband and I both wanted to lick the plate after eating the roasted Cauliflower...yummy.

    Amazing wine and amazing food. We ordered the cauliflower "begin" and the Dragonette red wine which was divine. Although we only ordered wine and the cauliflower, it felt so sexy. It was like eating art that enveloped your body.

    I had potato leek bisque to start and it was excellent!! Our main dishes were good but not exceptional. My duck was not hot when it arrived at the table.The polenta and broccolini were both hot so it was edible and tasted great. My husband said his scallops didn't have much flavor. my dessert of chocolate and honey was delicious. My husband ordered the wine cake. it was served over bananas and topped with ice cream. The waitress said to be careful because the cake was very hot. Unfortunately, it was cold so didn't melt the ice cream and the dish just didn't come together. My husband was quite disappointed. The staff was very friendly, helpful and plesant. However, the service was very slow. Our entire dinner took close to 2 hours. It reminded us when we were in Europe. Maybe that was what they were going for, but it got irritating. Overall, not a wasted evening, but definitely some low spots.

    What a hidden gem in Solvang. This is hands-down THE best restaurant in town. Cuisine, ambiance, service - its got it all. And frankly, compared to a commensurate level of quality in LA, a downright bargain. Looking for a fine dining experience in Solvang? This is your place.

    We were on a wine-tasting trip and wanted the tasting menu. The ambiance was elegant. Our server Michelle was lovely, hard working and did a great job b with timing our food and wine pairings. The food was consistently good throughly the progression. The potato leek soup, cauliflower, and steak courses were all stand outs. The wine pairings were lovely. A great dining experience over all!
