The four of us had a fantastic meal! Our waiter TY was great! Fun and professional. Everything we ordered was wonderful. Salmon, duck,(the forbidden rice that came along with it was the best I've ever tasted!), ribs and fried chicken all done to perfection. And the flourless chocolate cake we shared for dessert was wonderful. Would highly recommend a visit!

All of the food was pre-made "leftovers." It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. At home I would never serve it to my guests. I am a foodie and somewhat picky but food at a restaurant should be made fresh and not rewarmed as leftovers at these prices.

We had the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and the duck. Both were very good. The place is pretty small so it can get noisy but we had a very nice evening and we'll definitely go again. We finished the night off with the flourless chocolate cake and it was delicious!

Great vegan option for my vegan friend. Salmon looked great. Short rib was a little petite. Deserts were great, as was the waiter. Good draft beer selection. Good spot.

The food here is delicious and the portion sizes are generous. I had the bruschetta and the vegan stew. My husband had the scallops and the pork tenderloin. The ambience was good, plenty of people there but it was not too loud. I wish, though, that I had been given time to finish my bruschetta before the entrees arrived!

Went to SC on a Wednesday night to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We were greeted at the door by a super friendly waiter and our assigned server was equally amazing -- they really shine at customer service! Atmosphere was super cute and cozy, perfect place for a date night! The menu was eclectic and seasonal ... my BF ordered the duck and it was beautifully plated and delicious! I ordered the salmon and they were cool modifying it to suit my dietary restrictions (I'm a nightmare I know, gluten free) ... not sure if it was the modification but it was a little bland. My BF got the sundae for dessert and he finished it in 5 seconds so I'm sure it was perfect! We got the finest bottle of $30 wine on the menu (haha the only bottle of $30 wine) and it was local and tasted magnificent for being so cheap! Overall, i'm really impressed by SC and would totally recommend it to anyone visiting Solvang! Great local flavor, great service, great atmosphere!!!

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 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.

We were travelling through Solvang on our way to OR. Unfortunately, the service was very slow. Our server was taking care of a large party dining outside, so it was hard to get her attention for water, and check. Food was good, yet a bit over priced.

The place had a great feel and the cocktails were very tasty. The meatloaf was very rich and filling, the fried chicken wasn't the best. Not as crispy as hoped for and the Mac and cheese and collards needed more flavor. But the atmosphere and look of the restaurant was on point.

This was a lovely meal with a beautiful and bountiful charcuterie plate for starters, followed by amazing Brussel sprouts and the three little piggies (bacon wrapped tenderloin on a fried potato cake) which was very delicious. Dessert was the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Service by Ty was terrific and accommodated all our requests. Certainly on our list anytime we return to Solvang.
