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!

Among us we ordered most of the offerings and were uniformly delighted. Servers were personable (fun!) and knowledgeable. It was a first class experience all around! Thank you!!!

It’s beautiful inside, the food was amazing - cauliflower soup, fresh pea salad, French onion soup, crab cakes, rack of lamb, sea bass were all wonderful. Our server Dominic was lovely, knowledgeable and pleasant.

The service was outstanding and the food/wine was even better. The sommelier visited out table, chatted about wine, and recommended a delicious Pinot Noir to enjoy with our meal. My wife got the salmon and I got the rosemary chicken—both dishes were out of this world. Highly recommend.

My wife's Sea Bass was delicious, but my Venison was extraordinary! The service was wonderful and the outdoor setting just perfect.What really set this Santa Barbara Bouchon apart from many other high quality French restaurants was the absence of any attitude; we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Looking forward to returning, because any meal here makes your evening special.

Spacing between food was too long, lost the enthusiasm for our food tbh- sea bass a tad too dry, pork belly a tad too tough. Brussels were too boiled and not crispy enough, but the scallops were quite delicious. The bread at the beginning was also tasty but overall, a rather mediocre meal for the high value.

The service was incredible (Tony was the best and knew so much about the wines and food pairings), and everyone was so nice. The food was excellent- I had the wagyu ribeye , and my husband had the duck. Both were fantastic. I’d highly recommend this restaurant for people of all ages. Lovely place!!

When she told the staff, they just said they were sorry but did not offer any adjustment or to redo the order. This negated what would otherwise have been an outstanding experience.

Walking up to the reception, I noticed the gentleman was wearing denim - noticeably less formal than my visit before. Our waiter, Dave, was professional without being pretentious. This was a different Bouchon. What hadn't changed was the quality of the food. I have always believed that the quality of the restaurant can be immediately determined by the bread and butter served. Needless to say, the bread and butter were tasty. The onion soup was served hot and tasted fantastic as were the salads we ordered. My wife and I shared the Crab Cakes - the two largest moist and tender we've ever had. My wife ordered the Roasted Chicken and I, for the experience, ordered Duck. She raved about the chicken and I thoroughly enjoyed the duck. We capped off the night with a Cappuccino and Creme Brulee. We will definitely dine there again!

The ambiance is lovely, fresh and beautiful floral arrangements throughout. Wine selections are outstanding. I have been dining here for 20 plus years and never been disappointed. As a Vegetarian the chef always prepares some different and creative unlike most restaurants. I always recommend Bouchon (Plug/Cork) for special dinners and to visitors to Santa Barbara. Truly Special! Thank you!

It's on the pricey side, so only on "special occasions." The 3 of us found the selection of items to be intriguing and inviting and they did not disappoint. Food was delicious, the wait person helpful and knowledgeable about wine (by the glass) choices. I would certainly return and recommend Bouchon.
