Yes it's very popular as a luncheon & dinner spot....but we save it for Sunday brunch. Neat atmosphere, comfortable and quaint.

40 of us were staying as a group in flying flags RV park in Buellton. We needed to find a great restaurant for our final dinner together. Jim Sobell was very gracious and reserved the large dining room for our group. Everything was set up in advance and we could order off the menu with four selections. We did not... More

I had a delicious bowl of Pozolo and a fresh Ceaser Salad with a glass of wine and fresh bread. The host and hostess were so nice, service was fast and the atmosphere is delightful!

This is a quaint old home converted to a restaurant. Staff are friendly but the food was not very creative and lacked flavor. The frittata was more like a fried plain egg. Others in the group had the blueberry pancakes and liked them.

We went to this restaurant with our friends who live there. We knew the food would be excellent since we had been there before when we also lived in the area. It is a charming house turned into a cozy restaurant. They do have outside seating with lovely views of the garden area. My husband and I both ordered Salmon... More

We have enjoyed dining at The Vineyard House each time we're in the area (at least once a year for the last 12 years). They have many excellent choices on their menu from beef to fish to pasta and all of the dishes are fantastic. Between the two of us we have had virtually all of them. They have a... More

This little restaurant is within walking distance of downtown Santa Ynez. Not that Santa Ynez is big. This restaurant has been around longer than most of the others. A place where locals like to come to. That should say something. Good food.

A quaint location well suited for the area that serves a great Sunday brunch at reasonable prices surrounded by tall trees. It has indoor seating, but the outdoor seating is the best with two different views. Service is good and parking is no problem. It seems this restaurant is very popular with the locals and hours away for others who... More
