    Quaint and comfortable dining room; great ambience. We were there during restaurant week, so it was crowded; yet, it didn't feel that way given our great service. Nice wine selection, as expected; I highly recommended if you're anywhere near Solvang.

    While the service was quite excellent, the wine selection was way overpriced. Food was good but I expected bolder flavors and precise seasoning for a Michelin star restaurant - a little more color and finesse … you can order from the menu vs getting a 5 course tasting menu which is a plus. Service charge is automatic which is strange for a party of 2. We probably still would have tipped the same but I appreciate when that decision is left to me vs the venue. Overall it was a good meal and great time.

    The restaurant itself is small, and quaint. The service from Amanda was second to none. The food would have been great except for it coming to the table lukewarm at best. I encourage whom ever is in charge of getting food to the table to do so while it’s hot. It really does make a difference, and because of that I would not recommend the restaurant unfortunately.

    I ordered the tasting menu and the accompanying wine flight. There seemed to be only one server delivering all the plates of food to all the tables, so the timing of the courses was very uneven. He tried to say what he was bringing me, but was rushed, and it felt as though he was dumping the plates and running. The food was good, all tastes I had enjoyed before at other restaurants, so not super inventive, but good. And the wine was also nice.

    The food was pretty good but we didn’t feel it was worth what it cost. Also, the wine pairing was disappointing for the area we live. Sort of just a mediocre experience that cost more than it would to go to Bell’s.

    Disappointing-first of all the staff is very pleasant especially Matt but the food left a lot to be desired especially at the price point they charge. I think we might’ve gone on a night when the chef wasn’t there.my friend ordered the halibut, and it was literally mush totally inedible. we were able to send it back and got the duck wings which were pretty tasty. I had the duck breast, which was basically two pieces of duck with no sauce and a very mediocre side dish of Farro that somehow was combine with grapes. Considering all the high reviews this was almost shockingly bad quality food.oh well….

    Food was simply amazing, the mix of different flavors and textures. Easily one of the best meals I’ve had. Cauliflower with chive and truffle sauce and mushroom risotto are must order dishes. Server was a little forgetful and slow with follow ups but very friendly.

    Charming little spot in Solvang! The culinary experience is elevated yet it all feels very relaxed. We'd say it's one of the top spots in the valley. Very cool wine wine list finding some very offbeat selections along with the local favorites. The duck and the wine cake were among our favorite dishes we tried. The prices are on par with the other high end places but didn't seem overly expensive for what you get.

    My wife and I went to solving for a romantic weekend trip this dinner was the culinary highlight of our trip. The reservation was easy and the staff at the restaurant was accommodating to my wife’s dietary restrictions. Other than the couple seated behind us having an argument for part of the meal (which was no fault of the restaurant) we had a very enjoyable meal. Food was excellent service was exceptional. We would definitely return for another special occasion. For a higher price point they delivered very good value.

    The manager was very nice and accommodating, which we appreciated, but the timing was off with our food and wine pairing and most of the dishes really missed the mark, though the fish course and (thankfully) the homemade bread with dipping sauce were delicious. Before committing to a scripted and pricey five-course culinary adventure, I would recommend going first to experience the a la carte menu to ensure the food meets your expectations. Personally, we were disappointed. It is possible the chef and our server just had an off night; it happens.
