Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe Ratings and Reviews
I found Los Olivos Wine Merchant and Cafe searching on the best places for wine tasting in the region. The online good reviews were spot on, the atmosphere was exactly what we hoped for to celebrate a special occasion with another couple. We sat outside, the setting was very nice, our service from greeting until we departed was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly and the service overall was very quick. Our meals were all delicious from appetizers, to salads and main courses. Wine selection was as hoped and our husbands enjoyed the beer selection. We hope to return when we return back to the area.
Such a wonderful dinner on such a special day! After getting married in SB we had dinner here with a handful of close friends. The food was great and the atmosphere was perfect - not too loud so even with our large group we were able to have good conversations. Some of the standouts were the gnocchi, skirt steak with chimichurri, and the lamb Shepard's pie. We will definitely be back.
I have been going to this restaurant for many years, usually to celebrate a special occasion with friends. It's a 45-minute drive from my home but well worth it. Whether you're driving north from Santa Barbara or south from San Luis Obispo County, its a pleasant drive. Do it in daylight and enjoy a great lunch.
Los Olivos Wine Merchant is a wonderful restaurant and wine bar in the idyllic town of Los Olivos. The food is always inventive and delicious. Great mixture of spices and flavors. We loved the turkey burger, brisket sandwich and pizza. Service, as always, was perfect!
As above great food and ambiance was outstanding. Nice little gift shop also. However, we waited 15 minutes and had to ask for service as "our table wasn't checked off as occupied when she came on work." Yet staff were all around us sitting there without water or menus. Waitress was very apologetic and we finished in time for the play in Solvang. Strange....
The food and service were excellent. Four of us enjoyed every minute of our experience at the restaurant. Our waiter was fun, interesting, and knew the menu and wine list very well. You can't beat the food!! Try the short ribs. We were still talking about it the next day.
We were ecstatic to find this absolute gem of a hotel it was delightful we found it our selves no one recommended this place for us I wish they had its well worth the drive and all kinds of exquiitse food for first timers in solving and celebrating our first anniversary year we highly recommend this place we will definitely be back !
Very quaint location. We dined on the patio, which was perfect. Menu had a good selection, but was not overwhelming--a big plus in my book. Server was knowledgeable about wine selection and made good recommendations. If you're visiting the area, this is a great option for dinner out.
I LIVED IN LOS OLIVOS FOR 20 YRS AND THIS RESTAURANT WAS OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO GO TO ESP WITH FRIENDS AND GUESTS FROM OUT OF TOWN. A HAPPY ATMOSPHERE, FRIENDLY WAIT PEOPLE, VERY ATTENTIVE TO THEIR CLIENTS. KAREN IS A SUPER WAITRESS AND ALWAYS SEES TO YOUR EVERY NEED. THE MENUE IS FRESH AND INVENTIVE. WONDERFUL SMALL PLATES AND PASTA TO DIE FOR.[ MUSHROOM ] A VERY WELL ROUNDED WINE SELECTION INCLUDING SPARKLING VARIETIES. BEST CHOICE IN TOWN!
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.
