Very friendly and efficient service. Excellent food and great presentation.
The menu items were unique, creative and delicious.
The staff was awesome. I’d highly recommend this restaurant.
Outstanding! Food, service, vibe. Everything was perfect! The scallops and duck entrees, to die for. Duck wings, woah! Also had a bottle of the 81’ Tempranillo, fantastic. Do yourself a favor and splurge at First & Oak.
We went to First and Oak on our honeymoon in Solvang, and it was amazing! The chef came out with multiple courses and explained the dishes in detail, the plating was beautiful, and most importantly the taste was delicious! The wait staff knew just how to space out the courses so you never felt rushed, and you got to savor each course as intended! We will definitely be coming back for our next special occasion!
The duck breast was extremely over cooked
This gem of a restaurant is tucked away on a street that is removed from the tourist area. Fantastic food!
Nicely appointed dining room adhering to inside covid restrictions so limited seating. Staff was attentive and friendly and food terrific - would highly recommend
Food was nothing special. Corkage was steep. Service was fair. With so many great restaurants in SYV I don’t think we will be going back.
Was great but didn’t like how are table was right next to another couple with just glass in between.
When in Solvang we always dine here. The Chef is awesome and the service is always outstanding. Nice and quiet. Makes you feel you are dining at your home.
First & Oak is a lovely spot in Solvang! The food was super tasty - the highlights for us were the confit potatoes, duck, and chocolate & honeycomb dessert (one of the best desserts I've had!). We sat outside and were grateful for the heaters. The service was wonderful and speedy and thoughtful. We brought our dog with us to dinner, and the staff mindfully sat us at a table with a little area out of the way for our dog and also brought water for him. Highly recommend if you're looking for a nice, upscale dining experience in Solvang.
Amazing fare, ambience and service. The bar has been set high.
Please get the other Chef back!!! 🙏🏼
Underwhelming. We had high hopes for this restaurant, but we thought the food and service were not worthy of the Michelin designation. The kimchi cracklings tasted nothing of kimchi, the scallops were too salty, and the duck was overcooked. They comped our dessert, but the caramel apple tart was a miss.
Definitely not somewhere you go every day but for an anniversary dinner it was very nice. The food was top notch. Only complaint was a $30 corkage fee and they did not have any champagne by the glass other than the owners own sparking rose'. We had the Waygu Beef and the Scallops, all delicious. Tried their bread, oysters, and potatoes confit also, also delicious.
The food here was very good. During covid, they are required to serve outdoors. This made the experience a bit different and not quite as nice as it may have been. We cannot wait to go back after covid and have the entire experience in the dining room.
Everything was unbelievable!! We went for our Anniversary and our waitress Alana was exceptional and the food was excellent wonderful and AMAZING!! It was our first time at a Michelin Star restaurant and the entire experience was beautiful! We will most definitely recommend your restaurant to everyone!!! The butternut squash soup and tortellini was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten!! My Waygu tenderloin was phenomenal!!
Great service and food, we would recommend this if you are visiting Solvang
Everything we ordered was above our expectations. We will be eating here next time we travel to Solvang.
Food was excellent!! Service was just okay
The food was amazing! An absolute treat! So grateful for the opportunity!
Beautiful outdoor dining, delicious food, very good service. Just a bit chilly outside (even with heat lamps).
Dinner was absolutely delicious! The ambiance was warm and inviting, extremely cozy for our dinner date. I cannot say enough about the staff... they were extremely attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. First & Oak will be on our future list when we visit Solvang!
Beautiful food. Just moving it on the plate was like a creative experience. I'll be back soon to try the rest of the menu. They even made red cabbage a treat to enjoy. Kudos.
Our server was incredible, the food was outstanding. We will absolutely be coming back again.
I had high expectations based on the seemingly creative menu photos and stellar reviews. Service was very good. The outdoor tables have plexiglass partitions and standing heaters for cold evenings. But the food looks much better in photos than in reality. The creative menu fails in execution by taste. The tastes were quite disappointing from appetizers to dessert. Also way overpriced. Two scallops were smaller than the photo shows so soon I found there was only pasta left which didn’t taste good by itself.
The kimchi, such wings and avocado butter are amazing! Love how the chef thought out of the box for these.
Food was incredible!
Service was amazing, food was fantastic, loved this place
Lovely atmosphere, though outdoor dining is right on the sidewalk. We appreciated the heat lamps, but there was no coverage when it started to sprinkle.
The food was truly exquisite, but unfortunately the portion sizes are so small it's a cliche.
Overall, very pleasant and delicious, just best to know what you're signing up for - small portions and outdoor dining is not exactly secluded or protected.
Great atmosphere, delicious food, welcoming owners. Must try duck wings!
Food was exceptional and menu choices sounded so good that it was difficult to choose. Wine selection is outstanding. Great value and quality spanish wines with a healthy California selection. Sommelier/manager really knows his stuff. Truly a fine dining experience
Best restaurant in the Santa Ynez Valley. The food is phenomenal (great taste and a wonderful presentation). And, the service is very nice. Highly recommended.
Lovely place and food. Great service.
Limited choice for vegetarians. The baked beet salad and butternut squash soup were great. The main course, a risotto was good but not memorable. The dessert, a wine cake was just fair. Wine choices by the glass were limited to their own winery. Service was attentive.
Overall the promise was better than the reality.
First and Oak has innovative, yet approachable, cuisine. Good wine list. Our server was knowledgeable and personable. It was an outstanding dining experience.
Even being outside dining, the staff made a great effort to make us comfortable.
The food was delicious and well prepared. We will be back.
I like when they had the prefix dinner.
The food was impeccably prepared and plated, and every dish was equally delicious! I am looking forward to dining here when we return to Solvang one day, hopefully post-COVID so we can get to try more of their regular menu.
The only thing I would say is that while the quality of the food and the pricing are very high end, the service was friendly but maybe a little casual for being a Michelin plate restaurant.
