Our service and food was fantastic. I had the fish tacos. Yummy. Everyone in our group of 4 loved their food.

Came here w husband and 3 kids..ages 6,10,& 12. Crab & lobster were outstanding. Older kids loved the petit filet, and 6yo had his corn dog...something for everyone. No refills on lemonade :-( Decent wine list & prices.

Miguel was attentive but not
Miguel was attentive but not intrusive. The view is spectacular. The food was great. I now have a new entry into my 3 best filet minions (and finally one on west of the Mississippi). My wife's prime rib and lobster was also very good. Couldn't recommend the Harbor Restaurant more for any special occasion.

Lovely views at harbor..many
Lovely views at harbor..many sailboats returning to harbor at subset. House white. Wine excellent, service very good and salmon Wellington excellent. Menu selections considerably more expensive than nearby restaurants...but they don't have the same view, either.

Scenic Spot on Santa Barbara Pier
Beautiful restaurant in a great location. Wish we had made it a little earlier so we could have watched the sunset from our table. Seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. Staff was friendly and accommodating in every way. Complementary valet parking was a nice touch. If we lived in the area, this would be one of our go-to spots for special occasions. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in or driving through Santa Barbara!

Wonderful, memorable, a must!
We went here for a special night out while visiting Santa Barbara and even among Santa Barbara's standards, this place was amazing! We sat next to the window and had a beautiful view of downtown Santa Barbara at sunset- wow. Our waiter was friendly and professional. We had the surf and turf and it was one of the best dinners I've had in a long time. It's expensive, but well, well worth it.

Mother's Day Brunch
The brunch was wonderful.... however, we found some of the choices needed to be refilled.
Being Mother's Day, there were many families with young children 'running around' back and forth to the buffet area.
No reflection on The Harbor - just poor parenting skills.

Mother's Day brunch was outstanding! Will definitely come again.

Just what we had wished!
Our dinner was delicious and beautifully plated. Thanks for a great evening!

The food was good but not great, however the view at sunset made this a place worth visiting

I choose here because arround decad ago I had huge , delicous king crab in your restaurant, this time, the crab not so huge like before, but your seafood still is good!

The restaurant has a great view from Santa Barbara wharf. Complimentary valet parking is nice. However, service could have been better, but it might be due to the crowd during the Memorial weekend. Food was also overcooked for all the fish, with the only good seafoood being the seafood platter which was done very nicely.

Nice view, good food
I'll be honest, we came here for the view and we got a window seat overlooking the ocean, harbor, and the coastline. So that was great. But we were not disappointed in the meal! We actually ordered to daily special entrées, and both of them were quite good. The menu itself seems a little limited, but they appear to have a good selection of specials every day.

Great combo of food,view,& service
Consistently a great restaurant for special times. Seafood is fresh and presented well. Classic view of Santa Barbara harbor. Service is friendly and excellent.

nothing but good to say about
nothing but good to say about this restaurant. It is on my "must to do" list whenever I come to Santa Barbara and have been doing so for over 20 years. Am never disappointed in either the service or the food and have recommended Harbor to many folks over the years.

great restaurant off the pier
food was excellent!
we tried and loved the lobster roll, clam chowder, wasabi mashed potatoes, mussels, and mahi mahi.

We were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday, everything was excellent.

The location is outstanding. Waterfront/harbor views. Food and wine were excellent.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We booked early withOpen Tabl, so had a nice harbour side table to watch the sunset. The appetizers were great: clam chowder (could almost use a fork), and steamed mussels (only one didn't open). The main courses (swordfish and salmon wellington) were very good - but too large! We should have shared one - probably the salmon, which came with two big pieces. We took lots of fish home - tricky when you're staying at a resort. The wine was very good, and thans for the valet parking! All in all w had an enjoyable evening, and would return on our next visit to Santa Barbara.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was excellent. The only issue I had was that our server would take our empty glasses and not ask us if we wanted refills.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was a great choice for us new in towners - we had a great sunset view and could watch Pelicans and seals in the harbour waters as we ate. The place was sadly extremely quiet mid-week and so the ambience was lacking but the staff were good and we had our own good company.

Great food and great view
Really enjoyed our meal on our first night in Santa Barbara. Seated by a window as the sun went down over the hills, the view was spectacular. Menu choice is very good and service was excellent and very welcoming. Be warned though, the portions of some of the dishes are huge (certainly by UK standards!) so don't go ordering too much!

Good Food - Very Touristy
My first time to Santa Barbara and wanted to try some place by the water. Someone at our hotel suggested Harbor, so we gave it a shot. It's located right on the wharf, which makes for a great view. The food was decent, but for a $40+ steak, I except just a little bit more. Service was great, our waitress was quick and charming even though they were swamped. My main problem with this place, was that it was advertised as a fancy place. Everyone was in shorts/t-shirts and fairly obnoxious. Not to sound pretentious, I usually don't care, just a tad distracting when you have a guy rocking a mohawk belching throughout the entire meal.

Best Lobster in Santa Barbara
The Harbor Restaurant constantly serves the largest, sweetest lobster tails I have ever eaten. Great service and beautiful views.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere was great, and the staff was very accommodating when my boyfriend and I wanted to enjoy the sunset from a specific booth without having the light shining in our eyes during dinner (partially lowering the shades). It was his birthday, so I wanted to make sure it was special with a great view and even better food. Thanks to The Harbor for a perfect evening!

Dinner on the Wharf.
Dining at The Harbor Restaurant is always a treat. We'll be there on our next special occasion which will be soon, we hope.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome view but medium good food
The view is the best there is, right on the wharf, at sunset is great. The seafood was very good but the salads and sides were only mediocre, and there were no vegetarian entrees except to request a salad with the shrimp left off.

Had the Crab Louie and it
Had the Crab Louie and it was fabulous! My lunch mate had the Harbor Salad and also enjoyed it!

A great place to end the day of seeing the sites and having a great meal of fantastic food and beautiful sunset.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and food were both good, no complaints. Did not like the fact that there was one window that had NO blinds whatsoever, so I had to change my seating position to a less comfortable one in order to be able to see my cousin from out of town during our conversation. The sun was shining right into my eyes.

Beautiful Scenic view. Brunch was fantastic. The Mimosa's were unlimited which is nice, but our waitress walked by at least four times and did not refill them. Even after bringing more to a table next to ours. One of the managers started walking around refilling and he kept everyone refilled before they were even done. The food was amazing and the fresh baked rolls were delicious! Will definitely be going again.

Excellent food and service
The seafood at this restaurant is out of this world. Traveled from L.A. by train twice to have lunch and dinner there. Took my sister and daughter. Great view of the ocean.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Filet Mignon was the best I've had in years. It was cooked to perfection. The Surf and Turf is an amazing surprise. We could not believe the price. The quality was uncompromised. The view of course is worth a thousand words. The service needed help, but nothing bad, overall, very very nice! :)

Great location and harbor view
Enjoy an occasional visit to this iconic restaurant in spite of being a local resident.

We really enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet and carving station. Food was better than expected, the selection was amazing and the restaurant did a nice job of providing a kid-friendly selelction too. Thanks!
