Whine & Dine: Solterra Winery & Kitchen

In my world, nothing says, I love you, like wine and tapas. My husband, knowing this, reserved the 3 of us an early Valentine’s Day dinner date at Solterra Winery & Kitchen. I had mistakingly been here once before when I was pregnant – talk about the biggest tease ever. See all of this great wine we offer? You can’t have any of it! I vowed to come back again one day when I wasn’t so… prego…and Valentine’s Day was the perfect excuse. Blake was the cutest little valentine I could have ever asked for and, true to form, the noise of the restaurant put her right to sleep and she peacefully napped while Mommy and Daddy enjoyed a beautiful dinner.

The Low Down:

  • Very accommodating for the baby. They had originally reserved our table by the live music on the “winery” side of the restaurant (which would have been very cool had we not had little Miss Blake with us). They moved us to the opposite, quieter side of the restaurant without hesitation.
  • Amazing, friendly service. Our waitress was extremely attentive and friendly – she even brought Blake a menu so she didn’t feel left out  (I told her she’d take the filet and a glass of their best red). 😉  The owner even came by to thank us for the business.
  • Outstanding food. We ordered a smorgasbord of tapas including the Charcuterie Board (if you like green olives and prosciutto, this plate is for you), Aguachile (with bay shrimp – incredible), Tri-Tip Beef Skewers, Patatas Bravas and Krispy Brussels (with bacon!). Oh yes, and don’t forget the Costa Azul Malbec (come to mama)!
  • Ambiance gets a 10 – live music, surrounded by barrels of wine, country-chic feel (just my style)…perfection!

My Favorite Part:

Probably the Aguachile: Bay Shrimp, Hominy, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumber, Cilantro, Avocado and Lemon-Jalapeño Broth – just typing this makes me want to hop in the car, head back to Solterra and order two more!

And my obvious favorite was spending time with my two Valentine’s. I’m a lucky girl! 😉
