We are delighted to have added additional outdoor seating but Santa Barbara nights are chilly so bring a sweater or light jacket!

Fresh, local ingredients, prepared with care. Excellent wines that reflect the quality and character of our region and work in concert with the cuisine. Warm, inviting ambiance, service at a relaxed, leisurely pace. Santa Barbara ‘Wine Country Cuisine’ means we source our ingredients using an ‘as-fresh-and-as-local-as-possible’ approach, with fish from the Santa Barbara Channel and produce from the surrounding countryside. We then take into account how these flavors can be presented in concert with our local wines. We believe you’ll taste the difference. Bon Appètit!

    This was our first time at Bouchon and hopefully it won't be our last. Everything was outstanding - absolutely no complaints. The food was so delicious and well prepared and the service was perfect, very professional. It was for a special occasion and nothing could have made it more special than celebrating at Bouchon. Top notch!

    Steak was super expensive and came out cold, other dishes were underwhelming or bad and also very expensive. Felt judged by the wait staff.

    Easily one of the most enjoyable meals I ever had. The food was out standing. The French onion soup was the best I ever had, the salad was fresh and delightful and out filet was perfect. Told the server Morgan that I didn’t know anything about wine and he guided me through several pairings with our food and it was so enjoyable. Kudos to Morgan who was so patient and made sure we had the best night ever. Please put this one on your list if you are in the area.

    Dominick went to extra lengths to make our son’s graduation night extra special. The food was delicious. The service was exceptional. We can’t wait to go back. P.S. Try the duck!

    We started out with the WARM PECAN & GOAT CHEESE TART Herbed chèvre, frisée, pear, pomegranate, aged balsamic drizzle Wife got the the Sea Bass PAN-SEARED FRESH PACIFIC FISH Braised beluga lentils, roasted tomatoes, seared artichoke hearts, sauce Soubise I got the PEPPER-CRUSTED VENISON LOIN (SEARED RARE) Caramelized onion farro barley, charred radicchio, wilted arugula, sweet corn & saffron purée Then finished off with the WARM BLACKBERRY-LEMON UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE Lemon-Marionberry McConnell's ice cream, blackberry puree Everything was simply AMAZING. The table beside us had different entrées and starters and were ooing and ahing as much as we were....so total yum factor
