Passing through Solvang overnight we went without reservation to Mirabelle and luckily got a table. The menu was short( a good sign) but I could have chosen anything off it. Service was excellent and very professional and friendly,The owner came round to our table to ask us how we were enjoying our food. Decor is also beautiful in a Provence... More

My review is not based on the food or overall rating as a restaurant. My review is solely focused on the chef and the owner and how they run the restaurant. I am a local and a foodie. I support local restaurants and I wanted to enjoy my meal here. Unfortunately it was the worst dining experience I have ever... More

I have owned and operated restaurants with Chef Norbert in this area for 30 years and it is and always has been our goal to honor and please our guests and we certainly don't take it personal when a guest has a valid complaint. It is unfortunate that this diner has a rather distorted opinion of actual facts. It is... More

Our second visit Saturday night. Small, friendly and wonderful food. Two blocks from the Solvang Festival Theater. The tasting menu is a wonder with 4 thoughtful courses prepared to perfection. Portions are small enough to feel comfortable at the end. At 50$ without wine, we consider it a good price. Chef Norbert and second Craig warmly greeted us when we... More

We travel often to Santa Inez for the lovely wines. Our favorite restaurant since they have been open is Grappalo in the town of Santa Inez. However, we discovered on this visit another outstanding place........Chef Norbert is a Master chef, not very many of them around anymore and a character. I had the fix price meal and not only were... More

We liked the menu and service so much that we went a second night. They are open for dinner Thurs-Sun only and we went as often as we could. The restaurant and inn were well known at the local wineries and we even ran into one of the winemakers whom we just met earlier that day. The feel of the... More

Dinner at Mirabelle Restaurant was really nice. Had a wild rice salad with red currents and sliced duck on top. Amazing!!. For dinner I had a rib eye that had a lovely sauce on it along with a cornbread muffin, baked beans, and yummy onion rings. The steak was cooked to perfection and with some lovely wine it was a...

My husband and I dined here last weekend and were not disappointed. My first tasting was a mac 'n cheese with lobster mini casserole. Sooo yummy! Their salad offering was luscious and over the top. I then enjoyed the best duck ever. The people next to us were cooing over their food also. This is a charming restaurant with amazing... More

We were taking a walk around Solvang and stumbled on this little bed & breakfast that also featured the Mirabelle restaurant. The menu looked amazing, so I checked out the Trip Advisor reviews, which were also very positive. It is a small establishment (not more than a dozen or so tables), but I was able to reserve a table for... More

Have to rate this place excellent, excellent flavors justify the higher prices. Outside eating by a quiet street. Unusual for us, we had two starters, entrees and a dessert. Going backwards, dessert was a trifle which was tasty and certainly enough for two. I had lamb chops, which though not overly a lot to eat, had tremendous flavor. The lady... More
