Service was top notch, it was both mine & my boyfriend's birthday and they made sure it was special for us both!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCame to Santa Barbara forCame to Santa Barbara for the first time with my girlfriend for a little date night. I had no idea where to go to dinner, but found this place on Yelp. We had gotten there about an hour early for drinks before our dinner reservation and found the bartenders to be extremely helpful. Not much of a tequila drinker, the bartender helped me find a good, new tequila to try. We were then sat at a nice little table on the second floor. The waitress was extremely nice and helpful with her suggestions. In fact, she sold me on the Ceviche almost immediately. We had also ordered the mushroom tacos (AMAZING), the pork belly quesadilla (AMAZING), and oyster shooters (I think I cried a bit, it was so good). Everything was fantastic.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty and creative plays onTasty and creative plays on Mexican and Latin American regional cuisine. The dishes are generally smaller so diners are meant to order a variety of items, which works great since each dish is unique and the variety is wide. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was fantastic, as we were seated outside near the fountain. The restaurant has plenty of heaters so it doesn't matter if it gets chilly at night,3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCielito is an incredible placeCielito is an incredible place for anything from a small snack to a large filling dinner. Since the plates are small and sharing size, you can try lots of tasty dishes. My husband and I love this place and go for our date nights. The inside dining room is beautiful, but can be a little noisy and the outside dining area is perfect, no matter the season since they have the covered area with heaters. I can't say enough about this place, DELICIOUS. I recommend having the Filete de Anticucho if you visit on the weekends. Good stuff!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
