American | Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Ynez Valley

This was our first time at Norman's in the Skyview Motel (itself worth a stay!) We started at the bar with cocktails and then moved to a table for dinner. There was limited space, but our maitre d'hotel was more than gracious to let us sit at a larger table side by side. Nice accommodating customer-focused touch. We began with the charcuterie plate that was beautifully served on a wooden pallet. We then had the skirt steak entree and one of the other hors d'oeuvres lamb meatballs. We topped dinner off with a tasty apple tart. The food here is beautifully prepared and is simply delicious. Add to this attentive and superb service this restaurant is worth the drive and visit.
