Still a local's best-kept secret for delicious, creative dishes in just the right portions. I simply can't resist the octopus salad, which varies slightly depending on the season. The service typically is attentive, but not obsequious, and prompt. Wish the dining room had more character. That said, the view's unparalleled. The Hollins House is a sure bet for everyday dining or a special occasion.

A nice assortment on the menu with beautiful presentation, and amazing service. Great for special occasions or just a quiet evening with someone special. The view of Santa Cruz and the bay is spectacular also.

The Valentine's Day tasting menu was not up to expectations, although the wine pairing was well done. Excellent service! I think the new chef will deliver given a bit more time to settle in. Hollins House is a classic white table cloth dining room. Beautiful views on light summer evenings. Decent cocktails but there's better bartenders in town.

The food is always excellent. The service, too; and we are lucky to have gotten the same server twice and he is the best! Sunset over Santa Cruz as seen from Hollins House is simply exquisite, especially at this time of year. We'll be back, and soon!

It was our first time there having the wood fired pizza specials, they were great. Our server, Hannah, was delightful. Two thumbs up.

Without question the Hollins House is the finest high end restaurant in Santa Cruz County! As nice as the setting is, the food and service is even better! I would highly recommend the Hollins House and look forward to going back soon.

My Monterey sole was delicious, and my husband's lamb shank was one of the best he's ever had. The wine list was quite good, and our server was outstanding. The ambience was warm and welcoming, with a spectacular view. We had an early dinner, so it was quiet and very amenable to conversation. It's one of our very favorite restaurants, and the perfect place for date night for 28-year marrieds--very romantic!

Once again we love to dine at holidays. The Dining Room was festive and beautifully decorate. We always like the menu but appreciated the evening entree special of duck confit with grilled vegetables. Best of all, Hanna, the new server was friendly and attentive. Very nice evening.

the menu in the dining room is perfect, and we found it difficult to choose an entree and salad since everything looked so good. We each had a different entree, and all three were fabulous. Chef JP and his staff have improved the quality of food at Hollins House 100! We look forward to going back soon since we're local.

The food was delicious and very high quality, and the choices plentiful and beautifully presented. The service was attentive and efficient. It was pricey enough that it was fine for a special occasion (Thanksgiving) but more than we would ordinarily spend on brunch.

The food here was good, and the servers all provided good service. However, the kitchen was awful. First we had a cheese plate. When we were done with that, we had to wait over 30 minutes for our entrees. No one came over to tell us our food would be there soon. It was not a good experience. I couldn't wait to get out of there so we skipped dessert. We were afraid of how long it would take to arrive..

We have had a number of dinners here over the past couple of years and have always had an a completely enjoyable evening. The food and wait staff are both always great.
It is one of the places we go when we want more than just great food, but want a special evening.
