Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe
Excellent dinner. Mary’s chicken is outstanding, as was everything. Service friendly. Just a great evening all around. Great wine selection
Always a delightful place to sit down and relax. The food is always good, service attentive, and the wine list is unparalleled.
We enjoyed our experience at LOWMC. We started inside but moved outside to enjoy the fresh air. Our waitress, Kelly, was great. For dinner, we ordered two salads and a pizza -- which was perfect after a heavy lunch. Great place. We'll come back.
Our party of 12 was put in the "private" room but the room was shared with another group of 10 diners. Between the two groups the noise level was at times unbearable. Our leisurely dining turned into a "let's eat and leave" experience.
The grilled vegies were excellent. My trout was good; wife's gluten free pizza was amazing. Her white wine was tasty. The tiramisu was a bit soggy.
Absolutely. This restaurant is delicious. We enjoy sitting at the bar as much as we do sitting at a table inside or outside on their cute front seating area.
We always have such a good meal here and it’s also a really good value for the quality of the product the magnificent kitchen puts out. Great service too with very helpful information based on our questions regarding the menu and several items. The salads are great and the orchiette with sun dried and smoked tomatoes was very good as well. We always also enjoy wine shopping while here as the two are such a brilliant and obvious pairing!
Service and food was great as always. We are never rushed and the server we had gave us great suggestions.
Lovely meal in lovely restaurant in adorable town. I recommend eating on front patio. Less busy than inside and such a pretty view.
Food and service was excellent. Restaurant wasn’t crowded and we got seated right away.
Very tasty and fun
Lovely place. Food was amazing. Can't wait to go back.
As usual, Los Olivos Cafe was extraordinary!
Love the vibe, food is awesome, and service is spot on. Not over the top disingenuous servers like so many places these days, just really caring folks here that apparently love what they do, and I love them for doing it, and hope they will have continued success. Hospitality A+ with an authentic style. I’m so grateful for Los Olivos Cafe, and stop for lunch every time I’m traveling from SoCal to Paso wine country. Thanks to all at Los Olivos Cafe! I will be back for as long as you’ll have me.
Wonderful food and friendly service! One of our favorites!
We loved it. A high quality of dining in a relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely return and strongly suggest to our friends to dine there.
Our main course happened to be underwhelming but the salads were fabulous. Other plates coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. I’d give it another try.
Great food & great service. Go there & get the mushroom ravioli! Sooooo good
They offer a lot of choices & food & wine is always amazing
Had a nice early dinner on Sunday before attending play at Solvang Festival Theatre. Each of us had a great salad and then we shared the wonderful pizza - enough for two! Great service too.
Fabulous dinner. Gluten free choices. Skirt steak was amazing. Other diners had salmon and chicken dinners. All was great. Fabulous wine list. Plan to go go back again. Yummy!
Always enjoy the service, meal , wine and ambiance.
Fabulous! The food, the service was perfect. Meals are served with the best bread ever. We enjoyed it so much we went back again a few days later. Highly recommend!
We are locals and regulars and this a Go To for us at least once or twice a month. Our favorite waitress, Karen sees us coming in the door and is ready with taylored wine selections and the specials. it always feels like home. Food is great and the service is always a cut above.
The Cafe never disappoints! There is something for everyone on the menu. We love the Basil Arancini and Mushroom Ravioli...highly recommend sharing unless you are very hungry! A not to be missed stop when in Los Olivos (or surrounding area).
We are regulars - love the food and ambiance. Our server was VERY inattentive and uninterested - almost ruined the experience this visit.
I have come here many times and always have great food! The servers are always kind and professional; however, this time our server wasn’t friendly at all. The server seemed like she/he just wanted to go home, so it made the experience unpleasant. Everyone else seemed happy and pleasant, such as the food runners and other staff. I’m not sure if I will go back. If I go back, I hope it’s a different server.
Food, wine and service have a 5 star. I had a group of 9 and we were sat in the back room where they seat the families with children, I don't mind the kids, but the room was small and very claustrophobic. I wish the room had some windows to enjoy the beautiful views this place has.
Delicious food, knowledgeable staff, amazing wine, delightful location. Be sure to take home some of their amazing dipping sauce.
Always tasty and well presented food, and this time everything was perfect.
Fabulous server, she was great. Made my wife’s birthday dinner a night out to remember.
From appetizer to dessert,everything was excellent...food and service. The wine list is almost too extensive to make a choice. We had help from Jake, the sommelier, ending up with a nice grenache. The roasted seasonal vegetable appetizer was cooked to perfection. I had the fettuccine special for an entree and the apple turnover a la mode for dessert. Top notch experience.
What a horrible experience at this restaurant. This was my second visit and my last. There was a long hair in my chicken dish. Quite disgusting for anyone. We had left over pizza and asked for a box. The waitress took our pizza and never came back. When we asked about our pizza, they informed us that the threw it out. We ordered coffee for dessert and we were never asked for refills. I believe our waitress was avoiding us at this point. So we spoke to the manager and this manager didn’t seem to care about our ruined dinner. He didn’t even offer to do anything about it. He simply said “ we dropped the ball.”
So I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone. It’s a shame because our first experience was the complete opposite.
Another great meal at our favorite stop in Los Olivos!
Very good food! Baked Brie comes with a serious recommendation as well as the salmon and skirt steak
Every time we eat here the experience is excellent. Not much room for improvement which is a rare find! 👏🏼
Business lunch. The waiter was very attentive and both meals were good. The sound level was such that we could have a private conversation even with the next table and fairly close proximity.
Birthday and graduation.
Just outstanding service! Will definitely be back!
Enjoyed the lamb shank entree and the service was perfect!
Great food, amazing local wine selection!
