Brothers Restaurant at Red Barn
The 2013 opening of their second Santa Barbara Wine Country restaurant, Brothers Restaurant at the Red Barn in Santa Ynez, allows them to offer visitors and locals alike great food, wine and hospitality. The brothers strive to have legendary service, innovative cuisine, and a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere that causes you to return time and again.
As chefs, the brothers continue to experiment with new dishes and cuisine, but always with that “from scratch”, homemade element. Fresh ingredients from local producers, a wine list that showcases the region’s award-winning wines and a comfortable and historically interesting atmosphere that takes you back to the romance of the old west. They want you to feel at home, and experience all the best of Santa Barbara’s Wine Country.
Brother’s at the Red Barn is always excellent. Service and food are always outstanding. Our go to place for special occasions or just to pamper ourselves.
The food and the ambience is consistently good at Redbarn. Our server, however, was not as friendly and attentive as the servers have been in the past.
Wonderful as always.
Our server Andrea Cantrell is outstanding! Very personal, makes our experience enjoyable.
Although we are only in town once or twice a year she remembers our names and what cocktails we enjoy
She is an exceptional employee.
Enjoyed our meal and time at the Red Barn!
We were staying in Solvang for my husbands 65th birthday and someone recommended this restaurant and said make sure you make reservations. Well we showed up in Santa Ynez and thought is this the place?? Wow were we surprised! The food was amazing and the service was top notch. There was not a dirty plate or a half empty glass of water at any given time! I would recommend this place any day!
Great food - Farm to table. Very good service. Really nice! Overall a wonderful dinner.
Food is always great. Server was good but not great.
Excellent food and large portions
Perhaps one of the most delicious pork dishes I have ever had! Compliments to the kitchen on a wonderful meal.
The prime rib was outstanding. Would prefer an 8 ounce option in addition to the 12 and 16 ounce options.
The server was happy to split the 16 ounce option for the two of us, but neglected to tell us there was a $8 split fee which surprised us when we received the bill.
We tend to go here at least one night every time we come up to the Santa Ynez Valley. As always, we walked out full, having had a great meal, great service and a wonderful experience. This restaurant never disappoints!
It’s was amazing food and drink. The spring rolls are delicious the tuna tartare is amazing. Creme brûlée was basic and original which made it a delight! The only downside of the meal is the calamari should not have had some many fried onions. I felt like it was a to be deceptive in terms of portion size of the calamari!
Always a pleasure to dine at Red Barn. We usually eat in the Bar But it was a big Saturday nite and very busy. Ate outside in patio. Service was excellent. Didn’t care much for the two tables with dogs but they were very well behaved. Just large
Food was excellent. Their pork rib is outstanding. And we split it. Plenty of food
We will try to stick to non weekend nights just because it is hard to have a conversation.
Everything from start to finish is superb. Bread, veggies and starch are highly elevated, not just the main course.
Food and service are always top notch., I have never eaten a meal at the RB that wasn't delicious. It can get a little loud so for people with hearing issues it can be challenging.
For a special occasion it is always our first choice.
It’s our friend’s favorite restaurant in the area. We had a wonderful prime rib dinner that was ample for sharing, cooked perfectly, with great flavors. That’s all our friend kept talking about before dining and now we see why. Funny though, after hearing the special they opted for the scallops and we shared our prime rib with him. They loved the scallops. Cooked perfectly. We had mud pie to celebrate my birthday, along with a creme brûlée which they said was the best ever. Very good, but the mud pie was devoured first!
This restaurant exceeded our expectations. Everything was excellent...soups, vegetables, gratin potatoes the filet and prime rib were all delicious. I would return anytime and highly recommend.
Great home style cooking, a fantastic pork chop, moist, full of flavour and with apple butter. What’s not to like.
Always a perfect experience. Service and food have been outstanding every time we come here.
We ordered the tuna tartar and pork chop to share between two adults. the resturant charges 8 dollars for shared food! We had a generous portion of deliciously seasoned pork chop, bacon mash potatoes and veggies. I was so perfectly cooked and prepared i could eat it every night. We will return!
The staff at the Brothers Restaurant were very accommodating for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and did an outstanding job of waiting on us. My wife is very allergic to gluten, so the waitress ensured that the kitchen was aware, and our meals were cooked exactly as ordered. My wife had the Filet, and I had the Prime Rib, both were excellent.
The food and service was outstanding. I can’t remember when I last ate so much. The only blight on the evening was we were seated next to a large party. As large parties can be, they were rather loud. Not their fault or the restaurant’s, but it did impact the overall ambiance.
Their prime rib is delicious.
Food was beyond good. Our server made our guests enjoy the entire experience.
Wonderful experience, as usual. Love this restaurant.
Excellent service, delicious food!
We were celebrating our anniversary. It could not have been more special. We highly recommend it and will definitely come back.
Always great food! The dining room does get loud and lively.
The Dill Crusted Scottish Salmon was excellent as usual.
This restaurant is our one stop for dinner every time we visit Santa Ynez! We love the Sole! It is the best!! Thank you for the wonderful meal and good service!
There are no words to describe how wonderful our dinner was. Everything perfect and the best service!
The restaurant was a lot louder than I expected, but OK. We got seated in a corner of the restaurant with a view to the wine cellar, but it was quite dark. The food was good, but nothing special, thus the 3 stars. The bed of rice and veggies my wife’s scallops arrived on reminded her of airplane food. The scallops were tasty, but the accompaniment could have been better, especially for the price. Service was fine, nice server, can’t complain. Overall, I was expecting so much more after reading the reviews. Good food and service, but a bit pricey for what you get.
Wonderful food and service.
Went for a friend's 70th birthday! Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The restaurant was beautiful yet comfortable and the food was FABULOUS!
Excellent prime rib, beautifully prepared. The wife had pork chops which were excellent.
Great food!! Went back the following night because we were so impressed with the food and service!! 5 stars!!
Matt and Jeff have always maintained a very high level of service food quality and continue to excite and surprise without exorbitant pricing. Sound level is high but not annoying. Santa Inez will remain one of our vacation destinations because of The Brothers Restuarant at Red Barn.
Brilliant as usual! Friendly and professional staff. Fun energy! Delicious food with inviting and delightful plate presentation😊!
Try the scallops!!!Finish off with the homemade chocolate chocolate chip served with a yummy cookie! You will not be disappointed.
