Food was delicious. We had the special and though there was a small problem with the special (undercooked Risotto) they were accommodating, polite, and quickly resolved the issue.
Nice place for a good steak.
Not bad, limited menu but pretty tasty, we closed the place out at 10 pm.
I love(d) this restaurant and think of it as a go to for special occasions in Santa Barbara, but our last experience was terrible. As an example, we Ordered the black Caesar salad and I’ve had better salads out of a bag. The croutons weren’t fresh, nor made in house, the lettuce was wilted, and the Parmesan wasn’t freshly grated a, it was that flavorless pre shredded Parmasan that you buy in bulk. Also ordered the prosciutto melon salad and the melon wasn’t the freshest and the goat cheese with it was terrible. The poke was alright but not great. The halibut was underseasoned and overcooked. The cocktail list which used to be extensive and creative was paired down dramatically and the server didn’t even know the list. NOT worth it!!!!!
I had a reservation, nobody was at the host stand when I arrived, and when I got her attention she seemed annoyed I was there. I ordered sparkling water and waited so long for it I left and couldn’t even find the server to inform them I was leaving so they weren’t confused if they returned to the table with the water. I tried telling the host on my way out but she never looked up from her cell phone while I spoke. Disappointing experience…unnecessarily disappointing considering the food might be amazing. I’ll never know.
This was third time back at restaurant. The last two times I had an amazingly delicious pork chop. My last visit the pork chop was was somewhat dry though not overcooked. It didn’t have much flavor. The previous thin sliced apple was present but it and another accompaniment but everything was set in a somewhat bland cream sauce. Seemed like recipe had changed from last two visits.
Service was slightly above mediocre but for price point I may not be going back soon. What I had considered one of the best pork chop dinners seems to be no longer the case.
Good food, service could have been better
Great spot in Santa Barbara for a raucous brunch! Amazing service in a fantastic Spanish revival space. Great bloody mary's. very comfortable indoors during covid.
I'd recommend the shrimp + polenta. a great take on shrimp + grits.
The service was not great. The food was cold when it arrived and we waited for several things we asked for like salt and pepper.
Excellent brunch. Fresh ingredients and delicious. Thanks
Restaurant is at the Kimpton hotel downtown, entering through the lobby. Booths are well separated for social distancing. Menu is quite short, with just a few options each for starters, appetizers, cocktails and entrees. Food was very tasty. Pork chops were excellent and the halibut with the corn was outstanding. Service was quick and efficient.
It was enjoyable, but we were not blown away. Had the olives— delicious — the jidori chicken was perfectly cooked and delicious, came with braised carrots, which were luscious. The black garlic Cesar was solid, too. Service could have been a bit more attentive.
We loved it! & will definitely be back again! Thank you!
Great place to have a tasty food inside the Kimpton Canary Hotel
Our waiter really loved his job and the restaurant. I found the menu to be very limited, however the food was good, portions and quality.
On the negative side, they charged $12 for a bottle of San Peligrino water (about twice what we usually pay). The hostess/helper was under dressed and looked out of place. Out bill without alcohol, appetizers, dessert or tip was $120.
Overall not a good value.
The ambiance was very nice. However, the service was sub par. Our server did not engage much with us at all. Our drink orders took more than 15 minutes and my husband's drink was incorrect. Followed with a significant delay in our appetizers and entrees. Although the food was quite tasty, the lack of service would not get me to come back anytime soon. I really wanted to enjoy this place, as the setting seemed great. The service and delays could've been communicated better and I would've been understanding.
The food (once it came) was hot and very good. Our waiter was very attentive. We had a res at 6:15(early) because that's all we could get through open table. We arrived at about 5:45 had a cocktail at the bar first. Then decided to sit at our table at 6:15. There was no one there! The waiter said that people book a res then don't show. He said they had about 50 no-shows. We sat is a rather dark and sparce space. Ambiance not good. When you're in SB, you want to at least see and maybe feel the beatiful outdoors in the summer. This restaurant makes sense to eat in if you are staying at the hotel and need a quick bite. Otherwise, there are more pleasant options is beautiful SB.
The service is great. The food is a little disappointing. Porkchop is nice. However, the rest is not so impressive.
The dinner menu is PATHETIC. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I will not go there anymore until they have a decent dinner menu.
Fantastic dining experience... better than Knife Pleat, Marche Modern, according to my wife.
AWFUL MANAGEMENT! They can't even set up their reservation system correctly. We drove 1.5 hrs for a bday dinner to this location after making reservations at this location through Open Table only to find out they are closed on Sundays for dinner even though the restaurant kept letting reservations be made. If you can't manage your reservation system maybe you are in the wrong business. This comes from a person working in the restaurant industry for almost 40 years.
The menu is short, but the food was amazing. My partner had the halibut and I had the pork chop….wow! An SB gem for sure!
I was happy to be back, but the night let me down. They seemed understaffed (a chronic problem these days), so it took a long time to get someone to the table. Appetizers were very good. I ordered the catch of the day, which was halibut. It arrived Luke warm and dry, and we had to order the wine when the food arrived. My friend had the chicken, which she very much enjoyed. The place is not really inexpensive, so I am disappointed. The staff was very nice and seemed to be trying. Everything was just off. Ce la vie.
Great food and service.
The food was just mediocre and with so many other great restaurants in Santa Barbara I would recommend looking at other options for brunch.
Brett took great care of us!
Bday for my girlfriend
Great service by the staff at Finch & Fork.
Good was good. Menu is a bit limited.
I had a group of six people. We went on the app and made reservations to come after my daughters graduation from UC. We arrived and found that the location was closed. I received text reminders to show up for my reservation. You can only imaging the look on everyone’s faces when we arrived to a closed restaurant. So we pivoted and walked a few blocks and found Eureka open. But it was a very poor experience.
AMAZING!!! The food was sooo good. The architecture is beautiful.
Our waiter Jaime was great. The food not so much. Many dishes not available and OpenTable did not let me know that the restaurant closes at 2pm with a 1pm reservation.
Great service, food was fine but nothing to write home about. Sadly, despite the website still not being updated, the roof was closed for dining. We traveled so far to find a great rooftop to dine on in SB!
Very lovely. Great service. Delicious food and drinks
While we enjoyed the ambiance and the food it took was over 2 hours to get our food. Definitely don’t go here if your are in a rush, we saw 2 other tables leave because it was taking too long.
Restaurant was very quiet in May 2021 (still Covid precautions) and there were only 4 tables occupied when we had dinner. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We split the "tot" appetizer and the wedge salad, both of which were very good. We both had the pork chop and the flavor of the apple, bacon and celery topping sauce was delicious. Unfortunately the pork chop was overcooked so a little dry and tough. We split the cinnamon sugar churros dessert and with the dulce de leche and dark chocolate sauces, it was a really tasty treat. I would recommend the restaurant but caution about the pork chop (or ask the server to make sure it isn't overcooked).
The service here was terribly slow. Our 2 egg breakfast took 40 min to get to our table and the waiter rarely checked on us in between. I’m shocked that this restaurant has such a high rating. I won’t be going back.
Menu is too simple . Not many choices. Not very elegant
A bit off the main drag, but the food made up for that. We were a bit disappointed the roof top deck wasn't open, but during the pandemic, it is what it is. Good service, good food. Not too crowded. Thanks.
