    When in Los Olivos, we always try to dine at the Wine Merchant. The menu is always interesting, with many options for various food preferences. Service is prompt and friendly. The wine menu has a good selection from local wineries. And finally, the food is always well prepared and tasty.

    Had the home made ravioli as the main course which was very good. Just the right size portion. Started with the olive tapenade, hummus and flatbread - very good. Had the spinach salad before the main course. Salad was a great balance between the vinaigrette, pecans, cheese, and the apples. Live music performed by a single singer with a guitar. Perfect atmosphere.

    We go to the Wine Merchant often. This time we both ordered pasta dishes. Would not recommend the pasta here - really mediocre. The waitress (new) said my pasta was a white sauce when in fact it was a brown sauce. The sauce was odd in taste. We’ll take a break from Wine Merchant for a bit.

    Once upon a time...it was the Los Olivos Cafe...and now it is a combo tasting room and superb dining venue. Not cheap, but what is these days? Value comes from flavor matching quality and healthy. If you want to remember this wine country destination, then this is the food that soothes the soul and complements the terroir. The Bernat wines are more than good. Do follow the suggested pairings. Parking can be annoying and OpenTable is a must.

    The salads were flavourless and lettuce was wilted. The entree took forever. Won’t be going back. So disappointed. We usually eat here when we come into town but they need a new chef.

    They had a descent selection of vegetarian items that did not disappoint. The servers were attentive without being overly present. The prices were reasonable for the caliber of restaurant.
