Farm-to-table
Welcome to Ellie's Tap & Vine... Join us for seasonal cuisine, elegant ranch ambiance and great wine! We are Valley to Table dining, working with many local farms and purveyors; We look forward to seeing you soon! Our menu changes regularly, so please feel free to visit our website: www.elliestapandvine.com or follow us on IG and/or FB.

Our restaurant is located in the heart of Santa Ynez. We boast amazing outdoor seating with great views and because it is often a little chilly in the evening, we have heaters. We are also dog and cat friendly.

We know re-adjusting to dining out is a strange experience for everyone and we are all slowly returning. For now, we will be suspending lunch service.

    Another joyous evening celebrating Bill's 91st birthday! Michelle our server is "THE BEST", so attentive and knowledgeable about the wonderful menu items. Bill requested having dinner here so he could have his favorite Filet with the delicious whipped potatoes and wilted spinach...delish! I had the perfectly cooked and presented roast chicken that melted in my mouth! To top it all off, we ate every bite of the warm, decadent bread pudding and waddled out the door! Thank you Joy for another memorable evening in your beautiful place....of course you will be seeing us again and again and again! XXXXX

    Food was fabulous! Opted for the chicken - staff favorite, and it did not disappoint. Husband had the scallops and he was stuffed. But there was room for dessert. Strawberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream for him and I had the bread pudding - it is the best bread pudding I have ever had!

    Wonderful experience! Servers are polite, food was amazing, music with great taste and even the owner (which is also a great chef of the place) came to check on us. A place with history because she’s following her mother’s recipes. Great ambience

    Every time we dine at Ellie's we always have the best taste surprises! This time it was the cauliflower "steak!" It was a melt in your mouth delight. The real "steak" was also fantastic. I love that the beef comes on a bed of potato "Pomme Purée" and sautéed spinach. However, we missed the warm apple salad that is no longer on the menu. But no matter, I found the calamari! The sauce was so fantastic we ordered more bread to sop it all up. YUM!

    We always have a fabulous experience at Ellie’s! The deviled eggs were delicious and we both had the lobster roll which was such a treat! The staff was wonderful and the owner Joy is fantastic! My favorite place in Santa Ynez! Every dish I’ve ordered has been great, but we especially love the filet, short rib, crab cake and fish.
