    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    My wife and I had lunch on the patio to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The biggest disappointment was the food. I had the salmon which was supposed to be wild. Wild salmon is typically very pink. Mine was not so I doubt it was really wild. The veggies that came with it were way over salted. My wife had chicken which was tasteless and her veggies were swimming in soy sauce. All in all the quality of the food did not measure up to the hefty prices charged.

    The food was surprisingly good for a hotel food, but as part of an upscale resort you would expect no less. We been disappointed at many other resorts, but Bacara lived up to the expectations. The food was tasty and well presented. Service was even better with warm friendly smiles and optimal attention given to make a pleasant dining experience. Definitely plan to go back whenever in the area.

    Each item we selected was beautifully presented. Our table on the patio gave us a feeling that we were not just at lunch but also on a mini vacation. The service was exceptionally friendly and attentive to our guests. We will return many times when our travels brinng us to the Santa Barbara area.

    Lunch on the patio was very pleasant. Great spot for conversation in a quite, beautifully landscaped outdoor atmosphere. The food was exceptional, but very light portions - fine for me, but not for the hearty appetite. The wine list was above average, but pricey. I recommend the Pinot Grigio with the ahi or chicken. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

    Disorganized and slow. We were guess at the hotel and 1/2 the restaurant was empty, but they made us wait to be seated for 10min. Food was OK, highlight was the homemade jams/jellies.

    Very healthy and well-prepared options. My sister had the mixed local vegetable with rice and loved it. My husband really enjoyed his soba noodles and I had an amazing pomegranate, goat cheese and walnut salad that will keep me returning to this restaurant! We had 2 children with us and were surprised to see that they had a special children's menu that was ver generous portions.
