We fell in love with the food at the Hadsten House Bistro several years ago, so we made sure it was our first stop when we returned to Solvang. We liked the Bistro because - it opens at 5 pm for those who like an...More

We've stayed at the Hadsten House many times but this is our first time eating here and we weren't disappointed. I had Braised short ribs with a wonderful sauce and garlic mashed potatoes. ($25) It was heavenly, simply one of the best meals I've ever...More

We have stayed at Hadsten House before as a stop over to/from SoCal, but never ate there. Recently we took advantage of their dinner package - a stay including dinner. The decor seemed inconsistent with the dining experience - more like a ski lodge cafe...More

The mushroom veggie burger was great. Only complaint is too much oil. Setting is romantic and cozy. Service was great!

Since I was craving my lobster bisque and it was our 25th anniversary, we headed to Solvang to the Hadsten House for one of my favorite meals. Since the lobster bisque, which arrives with a bonnet of puff pastry, is so filling, I just had...More

Stayed at this Inn for one night, the rooms were very nice and a great value during midweek. The bistro has a very modern and "Hitchcocky" feel to it (as does the lobby) - somewhat dark and mysterious. Service was prompt and speedy. Start: Bread...More

Restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff. Gourmet food at a good price with an excellent wine list. Wait staff very attentive and professional. Will dine there again on our next Santa Ynez wine tasting trip.

Service, cuisine and ambiance were great; they could turn the music down a touch. Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Tony Benet, and the rest of the old crooners are great to listen to during dinner, but at a slightly lower decibel level.

Hadsten's 'secret' dining room turned out to be the culinary surprise of our 3-day visit to Solvang. The tasteful and romantic atmosphere of this "21st Century Hunting Lodge" venue actually exceeded the oversold, faux-"Danish" formulaic decors so common in other places in town. Staff took...More

This hotel (a renovated motor lodge) and its restaurant are a terrible value. I ordered a pasta dish that the Olive Garden probably could have done better - at less than half the price. The portion was huge and tasteless. We ordered a $36 bottle...More

The seating is pretty universal. However we like to sit up against the wall or in front of the fireplace.
