Exquisite Dining at the Alisal
Capturing the essence of California cuisine with the depth of flavor and heartiness of Western ranch cooking, Chef Endy puts forth delectable selections ranging from casual meals by the pool or on the golf course, to fine dining in the Ranch Room. A native of the Santa Ynez Valley, Director of Culinary Operations, Anthony Endy, brings to Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort a reverence for the region’s bounty and a commitment to timeless food made from seasonal, locally sourced ingredients at their peak. He also oversees special dinners and al fresco barbecues among Alisal’s rolling hills—“cooking with a live fire is a special passion of mine,” he explains.
The better the team, the better the guest experience, so I’m constantly pushing us to the next level.

Additional heaters and firepits will be provided inside the tent for your comfort.
Assigned Seating —The Oval Lawn tent and Creekside area are assigned seating.
It’s Tradition— Since the opening of the Ranch in 1946, it has been custom to “dress up” for dinner on the Ranch. This tradition means that gentlemen 16 years and older wear a collared shirt & sport coat to dinner and ladies dress accordingly. If you choose to wear jeans, we ask that your jeans be “dinner dressy” (not frayed and without holes). Keeping our “country-formal” dinner tradition is part of the fun. Sport coats are required in the Ranch Room. However, while dining on the Oval Lawn tent and Creekside area sports coats will not be required.
