    Charming little spot in Solvang! The culinary experience is elevated yet it all feels very relaxed. We'd say it's one of the top spots in the valley. Very cool wine wine list finding some very offbeat selections along with the local favorites. The duck and the wine cake were among our favorite dishes we tried. The prices are on par with the other high end places but didn't seem overly expensive for what you get.

    My wife and I went to solving for a romantic weekend trip this dinner was the culinary highlight of our trip. The reservation was easy and the staff at the restaurant was accommodating to my wife’s dietary restrictions. Other than the couple seated behind us having an argument for part of the meal (which was no fault of the restaurant) we had a very enjoyable meal. Food was excellent service was exceptional. We would definitely return for another special occasion. For a higher price point they delivered very good value.

    What a nice surprise to find a truly fine dining experience in Solvang. This was definitely not another steak and potatoes restaurant. The food was thoughtfully prepared and very delicious. Our only complaint was that our server, who was very nice, was not well informed about the wines or the food. She was unable to answer any of the many questions we asked but she did try to find out. We will definitely go again.

    We went here for our wedding anniversary dinner and it was just perfect! The place is tucked away down a side street from the bustling main street of Solvang and it was so quaint. The food was delicious-highly recommend the cauliflower and kimchi crackling! It was a great date night and everyone was so friendly. We brought our two dogs and ate out on the patio where there were plenty of heaters to warm us up.

    The ambiance was wonderful and the service was excellent. Loved the avocado butter but was surprised it took so long to come out. We thought maybe the bread was being baked fresh but it was cold. The risotto was cooked perfectly but had too much going on. Too many additions/flavors. Would’ve been better if it was simpler. Same with the farro that accompanied the duck. Sometimes simple is better. The medium rare duck was too rare but when we were checked on halfway through, they corrected it quickly. Thank you.
