First off, the service is fantastic. Fine dining service is tough to come by in some places, and Solvang is one of them. Mirabelle is the exception. Excellent service, from the host through the guy chasing you out at close. Food is fantastic, with a focus on local ingredient prepared well, with strong French influences. Every dish I've had was killer. The wine list is also top notch, with everything from affordable glasses to over the top bottles.

Get dessert, and hey, have a glass of port, you deserve it.

My wife and I had dinner at the Mirabelle and found it to be very good food with excellent service. We both had the Chefs taste which included 2 appetizers a main course and a desert. The portions were small but I was satisfied and not full at the end. This is a higher end restaurant and not what I would recommend for a family dinner. More a romantic dinner. Was not cheap but not over the top either. Nice feel to the dinning area.

We visited Mirabelle again last night for a special occasion. We each had the Prix Fix 5 course dinner and left so happy! Despite the place being really busy, Richard Bruce - the owner - and his small staff gave us a warm welcome and detailed attention for over 2 1/2 hours. The chef is amazing and has strong experience for a young chef - each course was beautiful to behold, each had something surprising and interesting about it, the flavors were blended perfectly, my husband said all the wine pairings were "spot on", and we left satisfied but not over-stuffed. Mirabelle is always our go-to spot for a fine restaurant meal in Solvang. Even if you haven't been there since the B&B changed owners, you will find it just as fine as when Brigitte owned it and Norbert was the chef. The standards are just as high. And the small size and comfortable elegance are relaxing. (And LOVED that soothing Brazilian bossa nova music that was playing. Adored it!) We will be back. (Great for pre-Theatrefest, too...just around the corner.)
