We were recently invited by Club Carlson to stay at one of their hotels, so we chose to enjoy a weekend getaway to Santa Maria in Central California and stay at the Radisson Santa Maria. When I was researching which property we would visit, I was impressed to find the Radisson Santa Maria was listed number one of 20 hotels in the city on TripAdvisor. I was also intrigued that some of the prime rooms have runway views.

I ordered a very simple meal of mac and cheese and a green salad, but that simple meal not only hit the spot, it also surprised me with the quality and flavors. The mac and cheese has five cheeses and every forkful caused stretchy strings of cheese. The salad was fresh and flavorful, probably because the vegetables came fresh from the farms that surround Santa Maria. The green goddess dressing was delightful and the salad had some unusual tasty toppings like pickled yellow shallots and shaved vegetables as well as goat cheese. Next door to the restaurant is the bar which has live music on the weekends.
