    Now that Chef Pink is in the kitchen this will be my GO-TO place in Solvang/Santa Barbara!! She is a food genius!! The flavors are beyond excellent and you really get a meal you won’t forget!

    Staff is not prepared to handle dietary restrictions. Our waitress kept going back to the kitchen to check ingredients in various dishes and couldn't answer any questions on her own.

    ...short rib entree was Mostly FAT and that's not an exaggeration, steak was medium well not medium rare, the dumpling appetizers were one note and spicy with no mention of it.Worst restaurant ever!!!

    Rich GunnFebruary 19, 2013 it's been a couple days since my fiancé and I had dinner at Root 246. The following is a brief synopsis and lowlights of our experience: 45 min wait to be seated, 90 minute wait to eat......

    Me again.....chicken dumplings were a bust. Too spicy and one note flavor but the crab legs were refreshing and came with a special fork Nice bridge to deeeeenar. TBC.

    Haven't had dinner yet but although we waited 30 minutes for our table, I've been very impressed by the menu and the ambiance of this establishment.....TBC

    Make sure to try the cheese platter and the shake and bake chicken. The chicken is to die for.

    Get the Ive's Shake and Bake Petaluma Chicken and it may be worth it to skip the mashed potatoes and get fries.

    Been lucky enough to eat at some of the best places in the world (inc. my hometown, NYC) and this is 1 of the top 10 meals I've ever had. No doubt, it's that good. If u ever have the chance, eat here!

    Found to be overpriced and even though gnocchi are potato dumplings they tasted more like mom's mashed potatoes and they were made from beets

    Ogden has a simple plate of four oysters in the shell with a delightful house-made cocktail sauce and a perfect mignonette with finely minced shallots. On Tuesday nights, oysters are $1 apiece. Read more
