Me and my girlfriend went here for Valentine's day while visiting Solvang. We both ordered the special menu of the day with wine pairings as well as the 2+2 charcuterie platter. Our server had difficulty understanding that we were both getting the menu and that we wanted different items of the several of the options available but it was eventually sorted out. Once the charcuterie arrived, the game was on. This platter was quite large with lots of extremely delicious things on it. It's not as important what was on it (it probably changes frequently) but It was over the top good. That was the start of an extremely enjoyable meal (including an appetizer, salad, seafood pasta, steak, flourless chocolate cake) and the best I had in California. Highly recommended.

While visiting Solvang, we happened to walk by the restaurant and I loved the energy, so we made reservations for the next night. When we arrived we were seated within a few minutes. The server took our order and within minutes we had a large dish full of delicious brussel sprouts. Yum. We also ordered a meatloaf and spicy hen (?). Delicious! We enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. I wish the restaurant was closer to us so we could go again (and again...).

We ordered the vegetarian chili. It was very good. Would have liked to have seen some vegan options.

Waiter from I think Louisiana was great. He was very attentive and personable. The host was very nice too.

Had such a wonderful time and food was fantastic. We were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary and had our handsome 5-1/2 month Lab (Doug) with us. The staff was not only attentive and extremely friendly but gave repeated love and attention to Doug. THANK YOU! we can't wait to come back.

We were in Solvang for a wedding and decided to eat here because of location. In looking at the menu I couldn't decided if I wanted to go there for dinner or brunch or both since both looked equally delicious. We ended up going for dinner and I LOVED it. I got the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and it was amazing. My friends also loved the lamb burger, the meatloaf and braised short rib. I would absolutely go again and would recommend it to anyone heading to that area.
