    As usual we had a great time at Sear! While the maître de seemed distracted and bothered, the hostess was fabulous as usual and Shaylee was a delight! Looking forward to our next visit.

    Everything was great! I went for my birthday dinner and we had a great time. The bartender Reed was nice, and answered my questions about my drink. Our server Shanta (I think) was super nice and helpful. She gave my a birthday hat and was given a birthday dessert.

    The food was excellent. Neither by friend nor I have ever had a tomahawk steak so we split one. It was amazing and cooked to perfection. The roasted brussels sprouts were to die for as well! We met the owner who was very visible at the restaurant and had a nice chat with him. Very nice man.

    We had Paco was our server-he was fantastic and even sang a special birthday song to our cousin! Thank you Paco! Food was delicious, had the baseball cut steak along with sides of whipped potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. Steak was perfectly done. Started the meal with cocktails-the dirty martini one of the best we’ve had in a while plus the Surfing Cow - yummy! The Wedge salad a must with the steak dinner-ask to split it as it’s huge! Prices are high, but for a steak restaurant, about right for the meal. Service again was friendly and fun. Our cousin loved her birthday sundae. Fantastic night-thanks so much!

    What an evening. Every single thing we ordered was absolutely fantastic. The fingerling potatoes were so delicious. The owner, Nate, sat and talked to us for about 20 minutes. Marcus, our waiter, was extremely friendly. The entire experience was memorable and delicious. We can't wait to go back!

    Everything was cooked to perfection. Our compliments to the chef ! Very friendly staff ! We drive over 300 miles for the food here. This is our 3rd time back and definitely not our last. Tomahawk steak is the best we’ve had. The lamb chops and the beef Wellington were also cooked perfectly. Our servers Marcus and Omar were very attentive to our table. As all others around us. Do recommend to all. Must dine here when in Solvang

    Had dinner at Sear for a birthday last night - overall a great pleasure. Pros: steak (filet mignon) done to perfection; service was gracious, kind and prompt; they seated us outside, as requested, on a nice patio; the portions are HUGE and enough for 2-3 people. Had a lovely Pinot Noir that was wonderful - Walt? was the name of the winery? can't remember - extensive wine list. Cons: the side dishes had too much fat and salt to be really delicious - could have used steam and herbs more in the potatoes, which were gluey with oil. The brussels sprouts were cooked nicely and had a nice cheesy bite, but again, drowning in oily butter. Only recommendation is to tone down the fat in the side dishes.

    We visited Sear Steakhouse Saturday, July 2nd. Our waiter was Marcus. We met the co-owner, Nate (I believe was his name). We ordered the tomahawk steak for two, brussel sprouts, and baked potato with all the fixings. The ambiance of the restaurant was casual and very comfortable. I was worried we might be underdressed due to the prices detailed on the website but casual, flip flop wear to formal attire was all seen while we were there and we were very relaxed. Our waiter was so sweet and attentive. Our food was delicious. We scheduled our reservation for 6pm but they notified us that our table was ready about 5:30pm via text. This worked out perfectly as we had just finished walking downtown and we’re ready to eat.
