Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe Ratings and Reviews
What a pleasent surprise!! The food was outstanding... Fresh, perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked! Unfamiliar with the wines in the area we asked our server Carly, to pair each dish with the appropriate wine. ...One glass of wine we loved so much we purchased a bottle and visited the winery the following day. Looking forward to making this a regular spot each time we visit!
Our friends, my husband and I had a great dinner on the patio at Los Olivos Wine Merchant Cafe. We started by sharing a beets and burrata salad that was delicious. Entrees were yummy. We ordered the lamb shank, trout, gnocchi and salmon. It was all great. The fried apple turnover for dessert was amazing. We'd definitely go back and recommend it to others.
This was our second visit to the Los Olivos Wine Merchant. The food and wine selection is great, and we liked everything that we tried. We plan to visit again on our next time up and will try to bring some friends so that we can sample a wider selection of the menu.
Los Olivos Wine Merchant and Cafe has been a favorite for our family. The service is friendly and efficient. Seasonal ingredients are creatively combined with popular options. Gluten-free meals are readily available and staff knows ingredients found in each dish.
This was our second time there. I wanted to bring my party there for my 40th birthday celebration. We had a bigger party so sat in the back room which wasn't very nice. The waiter seemed burnt out or something. He was not friendly or up for questions and recommendations. The food was great as I remembered it. Everyone loved their meals.
Farm to Table Concept makes for the very best and freshest salads. Party of four enjoyed entrees of delicious short ribs, house made pasta and beautifully prepared mushroom ravioli, and Niçoise salad with ahi. Food and preparation were excellent and our servers were knowledgeable and water glasses filled timely. We had a great evening and loved every bite. Nice location in Los Olivos and close enough to Solvang to make it doable if staying there.
We started with the cheese plate which was great after an afternoon of wine tasting. We then had 2 very different dishes. My wife had the skirt steak and I had the mushroom ravioli. Both excellent though so different. The skirt steak had a very definite Mexican taste to it. Great spices. Served on hot potato salad which was okay, though not necessarily a great partner, but it didn't detract. The ravioli was delicious. A table just across from us had the same 2 dishes. The woman commented that the ravioli was the best she ever had. Not sure if it was the best, but it came close. Plenty of wine choices to go with your meal. Would definitely go back.
Great place to dine after a day of fun. Great ambiance and wonderful service made this place a very welcome treat after a busy day in town. The service was lovely and the food was very good. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back next time I am in the region.
We had a wonderful dinner. The ingredients were very fresh and could tell that they were grown locally. Nice outdoor patio. Inside was nicely decorated. We enjoyed our table for two near the fireplace. Great wine selection. Our server was friendly and attentive.
This was our second time to this restaurant and it was not as enjoyable for us. To be honest our waiter was a bit odd. I felt a little patronized like we annoyed him. This was from the start so it wasn't anything we did. The food was OK. I think it might be better for lunch. Won't be back for dinner.
This was a birthday lunch with a group of friends. A tradition! Karen, our overall fantastic server made it extra special. She helped us with a reasonably priced wine choice, steered us well on our luncheon choices and the restaurant added a nice dessert for the birthday gal.
But this is a restaurant that is known from its friendly atmosphere, great food, amazing wine choices and some of the best servers in the SYV.
