Root 246 at Hotel Corque Ratings and Reviews
We were celebrating our 46th anniversary ...
We were celebrating our 46th anniversary, staff was very attentive, but not standing over us. They could explain all the menu and specialty cocktails. They menu had something for everyone. We had never seen such a busboy; he kept our bread plate and water glasses full always with a big smile. We would go back again and recommend it to others.

We enjoyed the atmosphere, the special drinks selection, the food. Our server had some trouble understanding that we were ordering "Carpaccio" instead of gazpacho soup for an appetizer to be shared. I did feel that the staff that was bringing the food out should look cleaner in appearance even though they were very polite and efficient.
Dishes were taken away as each of us finished our food (excellent !!)
Both the Carpaccio and the gazpacho soup are "repeats". The halibut was good with a little "bite" to it but my husband liked it - for me, a little too spicy , I think it was the "sauce" on it.
Wine list - good selection and affordable -

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Root 246. The presentation of each course and the flavor was delicious! Sadly our friend's filet was overcooked and yet it was replaced and perfectly cooked the second time. Our waitress was great and we loved the quiet booth!

We were disappointed in the food this year. We found it quite expensive. The fish was a bit overcooked and the steak had excessive fat (both @ $39/ meal so we expected a better dinner). The seating in the booths is quite nice, however.

I was somewhat disappointed. It just seemed off somehow. Not many people and no energy. The specialty drinks we ordered were good. My salmon was OK, but it was actually cold. I did not feel that the meal we received was worth the price.

Another wonderful dinner here in Solvang. What makes this one special beside the outstanding food and service is that Root 246 is part of Hotel Corque, and sometimes in my experience the hotel restaurant isn't the best restaurant, depending on location of course. This restaurant stands on its own as one of the best in town. The watermelon salad was to die for, and the signature cocktails were outstanding. Daniel was our waiter and did an outstanding job.. If you can impress my partner in love, life and wine then you deserve a gold star. Kudos to Root 426 and kudos to Daniel. We will be back.

A group of 6 of us had a fabulous dinner. We had excellent service and delicious food. The only thing I would change in the future is make sure I am seated in the dining room rather than the bar. It was a little difficult eating at a low, narrow table with giant chairs.

We had a party of 8 on a Saturday night. 3 of the 8 meals arrived cold - not lukewarm, but cold. A "medium" steak was served rare. However, the chicken was very good as was the scallops. Too inconsistent for us to want to return.

Food was delicious! Ambiance is wonderful. We sat on the patio with live music. The bar is also very nice. Our server, however, seemed annoyed and did not hesitate to hide it. Our order was taken and requests seemed to put her off. We were served and never had contact again until we got the bill.

Great food and atmosphere! Highly recommend for special events, their booths are very private and cozy.
Try the rack of lamb.
They don't have a great beer selection but a very good wine list. Try the Cabernet by Justin, for about $50 per bottle, it was a great buy!

only miss bottomless mimosas at another favorite brunch? Another brunch has bottomless mimosas for $10 each person? maybe flavored mimosas or another brunch put orange juice on the table and poured bottomless champagne?
Really like Root.
We have been here several times and have always had good experiences. One complaint. It was my spouse's birthday and I put that in the Open Table notes, but there was no recognition of it. We had some wine and I forgot to "re-tell" the server. So no birthday cake or acknowledgement. Oops. Dog house.
Went to Solvang to do some wine tasting and since this is one of the most recommended restaurants in the area decided to eat there on a Sunday night. (They are closed on Monday.) They were not too crowded and we got a nice quiet corner table. Their menu is somewhat limited but their special fish that night was sea bass, which we ordered. It was outstanding! That, a Caesar salad and a bottle of wine was a delightful evening.
Great food and service
Root 246 has seen many changes over the years, but I think they finally have a winning combination with the new chef, menu and new management. The menu has many choices compared to before. The carpaccio was excellent for a starter, the chipotle Caesar salad was great with a little heat. Had the stuffed pablano for dinner and my wife had the see bass, both very unique and tasty. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and the manager came over to introduce himself and make sure our meal was acceptable. Will definitely be back to try more things on the menu.
Loved everything about our experience at Root246!
We dined while on vacation and stopped for happy hour twice and then again for dinner. Each experience was excellent from the food taste and composition to the wait staff and over-all vibe. We will return the next time we visit Solvang!

This is our second time coming and the first time we loved it, this time not so much. First of all it was empty and we asked to sit in a booth and the hostess wouldn't let us, said there were too many upcoming reservations to have a 2 top sit in a booth. Well while we were there only one other party of 4 came and sat in a booth and then a party of 2 was sat in a booth. Needless to say I was steaming. The food was not as good as a month ago. The server was good.
Food & Service - excellent
My vegetarian meal was fabulous which I cannot say about too many restaurants as it generally falls into the "I guess we have to feed them something" category. But their Poblano Pepper was definitely something to recommend to everyone.

Many locals poo poo the place because it's evidently casino-owned. But I have to say, I've always had good food and experiences here. Been probably 3 times and always really good. I'm sure there are great local places too, but we like it here.

The food was amazing. We love their martinis first off, they are huge! I had the shrimp and grits so tasty, delicious! My husband had the steak and it was very good also. We shared the watermelon salad very good and then shared this desert that was hard as a rock, cant remember the name, I think it was key lime and meringue something.
