Bridgette was amazing. Read my notes on OpenTable and gave me and my date a wonderful celebration. Thank you! Everything we ordered was delicious! We tried the roasted cauliflower, caramelised Brussels sprouts, sea bass, and vegetable of the day. Solid!

About the restaurant
Our mission is to celebrate and serve the presence of the mother which resides above us, within our hearts, within the earth, and in all those who nurture us. We serve cuisine inspired by the kitchens of Mexico sourced from locally grown organic ingredients. Welcome to a seat at love’s table.

The idea of Gracias Madre was first conceived while visiting the families of our employees in Mexico. We wanted to do both; offer organic Mexican food to the communities we serve as well as honor the mothers who work tirelessly in the kitchens of Mexico and often live without their husbands and children while they work side by side with us in California. Inspired by some of the recipes of these families and the love of their mothers, Gracias Madre serves organic, farm fresh, locally sourced food, full of flavor and love paired along side with our agave-based cocktail program spearheaded by Beverage Director Maxwell Reis.

We had a really wonderful time at Fia! The food was delicious, the portions were great and the desserts were super fun. The waitstaff was phenomenal. Very attentive, friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to make our experience perfect. The ambiance was also exactly what we were looking for! An outdoor garden feel that's rustic, warm and had great music too. Plus as a bonus, parking in the neighborhood is super easy and free! 10 out of 10 stars. Loved it and would highly recommend for special occations or just a fun dinner out.

We loved the ambiance there. The som was deeply passionate and we received some great direction on where to take our wine for the evening. The food took more of an old school/traditional approach. Everything delicious and well executed though. For the price, the food from our point of view was slightly lacking but we’d be willing to return for the regular menu! Overall a great experience.

About the restaurant
After soaking in the TRB’s Santa Barbara mission architecture, you’ll enter and be greeted by a triple arched Brunswick mahogany bar. Large bowls of colorful citrus for making cocktails sit atop a twenty-foot long bar perfect for grabbing a glass of wine or a bite to eat. As you explore further towards the display kitchen, you enter our lounge, also referred to as the wine library. Knotted wood shelves display our wines, divided up by wine region. Windows surround the North side of the dining room, allowing our guests to gaze out onto the fountain in our courtyard. I describe the décor as thoughtful and collective, creating little vignettes for dining areas. We offer two separate outdoor dining experiences: our courtyard with full service and our front porch great for appetizers, drinks and lounging.
