Root 246 at Hotel Corque Ratings and Reviews
The filet mignon was absolutely delicious! However, the fried chicken was not as tasty as I hoped it would be. The chicken was too moist for my taste, I wish it had some flavor to it. Maybe it might have been nice if they had rotisserie chicken for a different type of flavor.
Our first time coming to root 246. It was my husband’s birthday. It was perfect!! Great ambiance fantastic service Daniel & Jenson so nice friendly and knowledgeable about menu. Food was fabulous my hubs had the filet mignon I had the barramundi both were over the top good, layers of flavor.
Definitely will go again ☺️
We were there to celebrate a birthday and because it was SYV restaurant week, we ordered from the special menu. It was a disappointment. The food was not prepared as ordered. ( very rare beef, instead of medium). The chef apparently relays heavily on garlic as there were several full cloves in every single dish. It is rare for me to dislike a dessert. But, the s’more cake and the sweet potato donuts were of a quality below the local donut shop.
Excited to return to 246 for Restaurant Week. Years prior, food was amazing. Beautiful. Healthy. Taste to remember. Wrapped in a wonderful ambiance.
This years selection for the 2018 reasturant week was a carbo feast. Lovely Caesar salad (all four leaves) w fabulous dressing and a roll. Then another roll wrapping the tasty hamburger with fries followed by a fresh fried donut heaped w sugar. A combination of too much carb and salt and sugar that brings the body down. Surprised by the unbalanced menu. Wasn’t something I’d want to boast or be proud of as a restaurant known for quality.
We had a wonderful dinner on New Year's Eve. It was perfect as we were able to order off the menu which had wonderful selections. When I made the reservation I requested a booth as my husband is hard of hearing. The request was honored and we were able to visit with our friend without raising our voices. We were also delighted to learn "Pink" had recently joined the culinary team!!! Thank you so much.
The restaurant was so very good! everything was cooked to a tee, and the ambiance was delectable. We went to celebrate an early Christmas dinner and we wee very satisfied, overall the food, service, and experience was amazing! We would 100% recommend this spot!
What happened with the restaurant menu? Previously,It was our favorite restaurant with the Fine food ,BEST in Solvang . We celebrated my birthday in December 2017.The menu changed,no more fish, lamb, only ribs,steak,beef. The food quality wasn't good,as it was before. The desserts are very poor. Hamburgers and French Fries it's a wrong way to go for up scale restaurante?
No fish on the menu. The chicken was not cooked through so I sent it back (unbelievable- who does this!) plus the presentation of the plate was amateur hour for a chef at a restaurant like this. (cold mashed potatoes, 4 pickles, and 2 pieces of fried chicken- and the thigh piece was uneatable.) Desert was poor, apple tart did not even come with ice cream unless you paid extra, Smoores cake tasted bland. Rososto was a soup!
Next time I get a gift certificate for a place I am not familiar with I am going to re-gift.
Don't eat here.
Food is bad, the bone marrow is too oily, the fillet mignon is over cooked on one side and under cooked on another for a medium rare beef, but the mash potatoes is really good. The sauce for the new york steak is way too salty, the steak itself is really burnt. Overall plating is not really presentable. The service is not bad. I mention it's my boyfriend's birthday but they didnt do anything about it.
We've been to Root 246 a few times and the food is always good but it's usually crowded. This time there were fewer people, which should've made it awesome, right? Well it didn't. Our server was nothing special, luckily the food was. We had the short rib grilled cheese to start. The meat was tender and the cheese was not overwhelming but the amount of onions were. I picked most of them off and it was much better that way. I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly (medium). The roasted cauliflower had the right amount of char. My husband had the short rib bolognese and it was consumed quickly, which means it must've been good. We had a caramel cookie with ice cream which would totally be worth ordering again. The cookie was warm and soft and the salted caramel drizzled on top was a perfect accent. Now... as good as the food was, it was also pricy. But we know that's part of going there (that's why we don't go every trip). Also, we were there for our anniversary and I included that tidbit in my reservation. There was never any acknowledgement of it, nor where we asked if we were celebrating anything.
We have dined at this restaurant in the past and were looking forward to dinner based on their menu on their website. Apparently they have a new chef and nothing was the same on the new menu. The food was so mediocre, and that is being generous. Huge disappointment!
We were in town for Wine Tasting and were in the mood for a nice meal. Everything was delicious, from butternut squash risotto to filet mignon to an wedge salad and seasonal craft cocktails. Finished the meal with an apple dessert. Service was excellent, highly recommend.
Root 246 is the perfect place for date night! Fiancee and I were visiting for the weekend and came across this place and could not have been more impressed. Service was great and food was immensely flavorful and cooked perfectly. Would recommend this place highly!
Here's the bottom line. Several hits and several misses. Wonderful service but really uncomfortable sitting. My sweetheart and I had dinner just after Thanksgiving. I had the filet and my husband had the scallops. Irrespective of other reviews, the scallops were fantastic as was my steak. We shared a truffle mac and cheese that had almost no truffle flavor and slightly underdone noodles as an appetizer. My filet was served with mashed potatoes and cauliflower. The cauliflower was very bland and unappealing on the plate (white on white on white plate). Serious miss. My husband's plate was lovely with beet puree and small beautifully diced beets. However, beets are sweet and scallops are slightly sweet. The dish could have used a spice or acid element. All in all a good meal but should have been great.
Drunk golfers were very distracting in the dining area, food was not hot, warm at best. Noted in the reservation was a Birthday, it was not recognized. Besides this, the food was good not great but still one of the best places to eat in Solvang and I will go again. The service is good, the price for 2 and a glass of wine after tip was $150.00, not cheap.
Good not great. Arrived on time for my reservation and still had to wait almost a half hour for a table. Came for a date and I could barely hear her over the noise. In addition the food was just okay. It was good but not worth the price. It is possible that we just got the wrong foods. Overall, it wasn't that bad and I recommend you try it for yourself, but it came highly recommended and I was disappointed. I'll probably go back sometime and give it another shot though.
Quick summary, I will be coming here again. Rib eye steak was fantastic. Flat bread appetizer was really good.
The not quite so good. Caesar salad was served using whole romaine leaves (including the nasty end parts) drizzled with caesar dressing. Dressing was good, I don't like having to cut up a salad before I eat it. Plus the whole romaine leaves don't make it look very appetizing. I will probably pass on this item next time I visit.
Chairs are a bit awkward, but comfy.
Our waiter Daniel was great.
