Next the stylish Le Corque Hotel, you'll find this gem of a restaurant for grownups called Root 246. It seems out of it's element...in a quaint Danish town filled with pastries and gift shops...and something you'd expect to find in downtown San Francisco but certainly...More

The ambiance is great, the food excellent. The plating is careful, even could be considered artistic. Run by serious staff who are serious about being inventive. In contrast, the service could only be described as inattentive. We were there on a Wednesday evening, off season....More

This is one of the best restaurants in Solvang. We eat there several times a year and have always had good food in a very nice setting. I would recommend reservations, especially on weekends, as this place has a good local and tourist following.

We had a business dinner here in a private room surrounded by rain glass. Dinner and service were excellent. Desserts were the only let down-too over the top. Plain ice cream was the best.

I love this restaurant! I have a terrible curse...I am a gourmet cook, and many supposedly great restaurants completely let me down. Not Root 246! We tried several things on the menu, everything was wonderful! I cannot wait to go back and try many other...More

Beautifully decorated restaurant. A very nice surprise in this area. Very comfortable and romantic. Loved the cheese board, prime rib bad blue cheese flatbread and the duck breast. Must try the mini martini trio- very unique. Also a very nice wine list and excellent service.

It is a dine in restaurant with tables arranged close to each other. They have outside seating as well and that could be used when arrived with pets.

If I were you I would look at the menu on line. If that doesn't answer all your questions,I would call & talk to them. They may have expanded the menu since we were there.
