Finch & Fork: Corner Grill Cocktails Ratings and Reviews
Went here because we couldn't get into The Lark, and it was suggested. It's a beautiful restaurant -- very busy. Our waiter didn't seem too interested in us because we were only ordering appetizers. We asked his help staff twice for some olive oil because my husband can't eat butter. Never saw the olive oil. I told the waiter at the end of our meal just for his information. Just kind of a half apology. If he would have offered a free dessert or something, that would have made me want to go back. They boast they have homemade desserts, and there were only three offerings and not that exciting. Meh. I must say that the man seating everyone was top notch. Remembered names and very friendly.
Had been there before for our daughter’s graduation. Was good then and that’s why we went back. This time the service was lousy. Waitress wasn’t attentive. They only had 1 vegan dish which was drenched in oil. My daughter ate hers, trying to wipe off most of the oil. Gross! I couldn’t make myself to eat mine. When ł told the waitress, she just looked at my dish, didn’t offer to bring it back to the kitchen nor another option. She never apologized and she charged me for it. Below is a photo of my daughters dish drenched in oil. Definitely not worth the money.
We had a wonderful brunch at Finch and Fork. The ambiance open and airy and fun. Beautifully appointed decor. The food is creative and delicious. Be sure to try their take on Eggs Benedict, with mild chipotle hollandaise and perfectly poached eggs. I had them leave off the pork belly but they substituted avocado. The whole dish was delicious and a nice change of pace. Their burgers look amazing, though we didn't order them. Next time!
Really liked the feel of the restaurant, the food was very good. The Manager warmly greeted all the guests and seemed like there were a few regulars which is nice to see. My only criticism was our server. He took a long time to greet us and was not very attentive. I had to ask a couple of other people for things since he was not around. It was not busy so I am not sure what he was doing or where he was. Regardless, the Duck and Trout were spectacular.
We really like this restaurant. It has a comfortable but rich ambience. Bar scene is quite popular but can sometimes be crowded and noisy. Menu doesn't vary much but the food is always well prepared. Has the best sea scallops in town. Wine and food is on the expensive side, all a la carte. Menu could have a little more variety. You get free valet parking with stamped ticket from restaurant. Is convenient to downtown Santa Barbara.
Our waiter was a professional. Attentive but not intrusive. The pork chop was outstanding. We also had a great time tasting the cheese platter with yummy condiments. You have to save room for the vanilla banana milkshake. Milkshake choice felt odd but all 4 of us were lickin our spoons. We really enjoyed the evening. We will be returning.
Wonderful food, excellent service. We had an 18-month old and the staff were happy to cater to our needs even going so far as to give him a sippy cup of milk. There’s so many restaurants these days that don’t have tolerance for guests with kids that to find one that has incredible food AND is accepting and helpful to parents is wonderful. We will definitely return and will recommend to our friends (both with kids and without).
The absolute best price rib sandwich I have had in my life and I'm not a young kid:) It was their Monday lunch special and it was fantastic. Our waiter Forrest was great too and my other guests loved their food as well! We hope to go back when we are in Santa Barbara.
Heard everyone raving about this place and wasn’t disappointed. We started with a delicious cheese board. My friend has the chicken and I had the kale salad. Both were tasty and a good portion. The service was spectacular. Everyone was friendly and our waiter was just superb.
My husband and I LOVE this place in Santa Barbara! We came here first on our honeymoon & we were blown away by the pork chop AND the butternut squash soup! We definitely recommend the pork chop! At our most recent visit, the waiter remembered us from 8 months ago! Talk about great customer service! He knew the menu well and he was also able to recommend new options for us to try-we loved every single thing we ate that night! We already can't wait to return for another special occasion! Food, service, and atmosphere are definitely worth the price.
I was disappointed in the service. I made reservations and was excited to eat there. When we arrived the hostess had a sour look on her face and asked sternly "Can I help you with anything?" in a less than friendly tone. Our server repeated my order, but wrote down the wrong order and I waited for them to cook my meal while everyone else ate. I wanted a spoon to try my friend's soup and when I asked the waiter to stop and said "excuse me," he stopped, looked right at me, and then and kept walking away. My friend asked for a spoon and he brought one and the spoon had food on it! My other friend was inspecting it and he snatched it out of her hand while she was looking it. I was grossed out and was afraid to eat after that.
Went here with my boyfriend for our anniversary. The food was delicious, our waiter provided his input on drinks that would compliment our main dishes and they were paired so perfectly! I'd say we will definitely be making this restaurant part of our date night places!!
They've created a lovely environment with good light from outside and then artificial lighting when it gets dark. The food was very creative and delicious and the servers were capable and friendly. Good wine-by-the-glass list!! Price for 2 with 3 glasses of wine was not bad!
