Root 246 at Hotel Corque Ratings and Reviews

Our Thanksgiving dinner was really a disappointment. Butternut squash soup was tasty but served lukewarm. Turkey entree was served over cold green beans and stuffing. The pineapple upside-down cake and chocolate pecan cake desserts tasted like they had been sitting in a cooler. The filet mignon was a perfect medium-rare but did not make up for the other courses. This was our third Thanksgiving dinner at Root 246 and probably our last.

Had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner here as a family. Menu included other non-traditional holiday fare, which was a nice break from the usual! Great options from apps, through salad to dinner and dessert. Excellent Brunello to accompany the meal. Would do this again next year!

I had never dined here before, but had experienced the bar. Based on that experience, I decided to try the actual dining room. The food did not dissapoint, but the service did. From the moment we arrived, our server looked like she was in a bad mood. She never checked on us while dining. We had to ask the busboy for drinks, since she was nowhere to be seen. Apart from that, the food was very good. We had the duck breast, two kids pizzas, the trout, several appetizers and 3 desserts. We also had drinks from the bar. All very good...

Thanks to Open Table I was able to make my reservation online for our party of 9. Our outside table was ready which was great. Each section had heaters.
Our waitress was friendly and correctly put in our very good dinner. Had the sea bass with mash and it was light fluffy with good flavor.

Some of the best food in Solvang. My steak was of excellent quality and prepared perfectly. The sauce was well done - much better than you often find for steaks. My wife vegetarian dish was equally good. Appetizer portions are quite large, so you might want to share. Service was very good without being obtrusive. Well decorated and comfortable dining room. Definitely a good bet if you are in Solvang for dinner.

My wife said her Top Sirloin was a bit firmer than she would have liked but the flavor was excellent. My duck breast was tasty but I was a bit concerned about the pink center being poultry and all. I would have liked it cooked a little longer.

The food at Root 246 was okay, but I was a little disappointed after reading such good reviews. We arrived and were seated on the terrace where there is a giant TV. We asked to turn it off as we were the only ones there, except for another couple who also wanted it off. They wouldn't do that, but in the end, after having to speak to a second person, agreed to turn it down as it was loud. I was disappointed in the meal and the ambiance as it wasn't what I expected - I'd hoped for something special.

the menu left a lot to be desired. The porterhouse had excellent flavor, however, we asked for medium rare and it was probably on the extra rare side. the potatoes and asparagus were cold and the butternut squash was bland and cold as well. we won't be back to the restaurant. the bar has better food than the bar....

We had a special birthday dinner here as it was recommended by a friend. It really looked great online with lots of mouth watering entrees. After reviewing the memo online we both had an idea of what we wanted to order (for me the scallops and for my spouse the halibut). Unfortunately, they didn't have these items on the menu any longer. They didn't really have anything that looked great so I settled for a sirloin steak. I usually only order a filet so even though it was good for a sirloin, it wasn't really something I enjoyed. The side dishes were good. Our service was really great and the night was very nice. I would definitely go back but I would check the menu first to make sure they had what we wanted.

Arrived an hour before closing on a quiet weekday evening. Food was excellent, chairs were so cozy we could have slept in them. Wish we had found this place years ago. Will definitely be a place we will return to whenever we are in town. I wrote more details on yelp.

I spent $29 on a chicken meal that was not very good. The brussel sprout dish was pretty good till I got down to the bottom. The last couple of leaves at the bottom of the dish were so extremely salty, I had to spit it out. It was shocking. I won't be returning.

Had come to this restaurant several times for special occasions and liked it, drove 40 + miles to celebrate our Anniversary, but were very disappointed and went home hungry, taking our expensive dinner to our dogs, so it wouldn't be a total waste. We had checked menu online before going, but didn't find the items we had hoped for.
The beef was Skirt Steak, hard to chew and no flavor, served with lima beans, pinquito beans and black grain, all not fully cooked. We also ordered Trout, instead got a slice of Salmon, no sauce , raw white asparagus, which wasn't even peeled on the ends, it is usually one of my favorite vegetables! Asked Waiter, about fish, told us it was Steelhead, but sure looked and tasted like salmon, which I never would have ordered!
The starter was Carpaccio of Beef, probably good quality Beef, but not for raw eating. It was so heavily marbled with fat, all you could taste was the fat!
There did not seem to be a restaurant Manager to oversee Dinner. Entering the restaurant, patrons had to walk past full dirty, smelly bus pan to get into dining room.
Too bad to see a formerly nice restaurant go so downhill!

This is one of the few spots in Solvang that serves vegan food, so we stopped by to try it out for dinner. The one vegan option on the menu was exceptionally creative and delicious. However, it was a smaller-sized portion and definitely not the best value for the money (Mesa Verde in Santa Barbara is the best vegan food and best value I've ever had!). Also, I just simply never understand why restaurants make vegetable soups (like pumpkin, butternut squash, etc.) using chicken stock. Vegetable stock works just as well and tastes almost identical. The place is beautifully decorated and is clearly the fanciest restaurant in town. There are two large bar areas and both have different, fun vibes. Outdoor seating is ample and there is live music on the weekends (although it could be turned down a bit so diners can converse without screaming).

Very convenient to our hotel and the Solvang theatre. The service was excellent, the food was good. I had the chicken and it had a bit to much gravy but tasted good. A friend had the lamb and he loved it. Everyone in our party enjoyed there meal. Nice wine selection too.

We ate at the Chef's Table - it was an unbelievable experience! Fantastic food that he presented and explained in detail, and he gave us extra portions to taste (for free) including house made lemoncello and orangecello and mutliple sorbets. HIGHLY recommend doing it and selecting the "tasting menu" (which is essentially whatever you want), especially for a special occasion.

This was our third trip to Root 246, and it never disappoints us. We were there on August 14th for a special shared birthday celebration and family dinner. The food was perfect and our waitress was wonderful, attentive but not intrusive. She witnessed, without being told, that it was a birthday celebration for my husband and brought out the lovely wooden service board decorated with birthday cake. However, she was unaware that it was also the birthday for my son-in-law's mother in attendance with us, so I told her and she quickly brought out a duplicate celebratory cake! The table area offered just the right amount of subdued lighting as well as the toned down noise level making it easy for our group of five to visit. Perfect evening!

This was our second time here. They have consistently good food and service. It isn't cheap but the food holds up. They have a good wine list. The decore is a bit modern but comfortable. I am sure we will go back. Make sure to have some wine and cheese on their front patio. Great place to people watch.

Food was good, peppercorn sauce on the sweet side. Calamari was slightly under done and sauces were unique. The thing that bothered me were the dirty walls in the booth we sat at. Please wipe them down. Server almost seemed unsure of menu. Overal an ok experience but at those prices attention to detail is of utmost importance.

Overall a fantastic experience. My only little complaint is that the caprese salad was not good. It had refrigerator cold heirloom tomatoes. And barely any Burrata cheese, a main component of the recipe. I would have expected a restuarant with Bradley Ogden attached to it would produce a dish better.

Everything was great. Only slight issue was we were there for over 2 hours. I don't want to be rushed but also don't want to sit too long either. Waitress was really good but toward the end the gaps between her coming to the table to check on us became longer. Otherwise we enjoyed it thoroughly.

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and unfortunately had an entree that was not as we expected. The manager promptly took care of this problem and was very accommodating ! We definitely will return due to her positive response to our concerns. Overall, the rest of the meal was very good and a very pleasant experience
Restaurant was recommended for Sunday Br ...
Restaurant was recommended for Sunday Brunch. Very minimal wait staff was present and while it was 11 a.m., they did not seem prepared to seat diners, and service/responsiveness was only fair-good. That said, the food was well-prepared. Guessing that regular lunch and dinner experiences will be better.
