The food was good, however we enjoy a more intimate, quieter atmosphere. It was a younger, college age crowd.... larger groups and very noisy. It felt like we were having conversation in a night club while trying to enjoy dinner.
We heard a lot of rave reviews about this place, but we were underwhelmed by the quality of the food. Nothing was bad, but we're not rushing back to enjoy any particular tapas or drinks. The service was pleasant. . . . I think we had high expectations for a wonderful dining experience, and were disappointed.
Perfect as usual !!! Always perfect. perfect perfect !!!
A bit expensive given the small plate servings. Brussel sprouts were awesome! Sliders were well received. Paella was a bust -- extremely dry, lacked flavor, marginal seafood, lacked sausage even though listed on menu, no peas or diced tomatoes. -- it was essentially overcooked rice with little seasoning and a few pieces of seafood dropped on top.
Great drinks- a variety of good small plates.
This is a fun spot with really good small plates. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Try the Kale chips, for sure! Duck fat carrots were mediocre. Lamburginis were moist and perfectly done. Blue Champinon was very special. Very good food at a reasonable price. Would like to see some draft beer in the menu.
milk & honey offers delicious Spanish tapas like patatas bravas, prosciutto-wrapped dates, and a small paella. The wine list is modest but all excellent options - I recommend springing for one of their handcrafted cocktails! They're known for their mojitos, but everything is delicious (I've had about half their offerings).
A fun quirk is that there is one TV and it only plays classic Disney cartoons.
Was great. Get a booth if you are on a date
Food was very good, small plates,the gambas, the sweet potatoes fries,the sliders, all very good.
The drinks were great and reasonably priced.
Great happy hour - especially the tacos, sweet potato fries and brussel sprouts. Go! You won't be disappointed!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. Every time I go I enjoy my meal and the cocktails are amazing! This last visit we had someone who was lactose intolerant and another who had to have gluten free and we managed to find great options for all!
The date wrapped bacon, brussel sprouts, patat bravas, lamb sliders and shrimp dish were all well sreasoned and cooked perfectly. The service was friendly and efficient but not rushed.
Food was great, service was not. Aloof servers who act like you are bothering them....
and no sparkling water, and not the first time.
Food is worth going back for.
Perfect way to end a long week was over tapas and cocktails at Milk and Honey. We were celebrating a friends birthday and Julia, our great server, surprised the table with a lovely toast and dessert at the end. We’ll be back!
The food tasted good and is nicely presented but it is over priced for just tapas/ small plates. The lack of creativity in the food does not match the price. I would not recommend this for large groups as the plates are made to share for two people. Also do not expect authentic Spanish Tapas and there wasn't really anything that stood out from the menu.
Great food and Great atmosphere
Good for a casual meal as a couple. Excellent food, but would be quite noisy for a
foursome or more to hear each other!
Food was better than I remembered. The vegetable dishes were great. The appetizers were wonderful - so good we re-ordered. We split the main dishes among our large group and it was the perfect amount of food - had room for the desserts! Our server was great - perfect timing and accommodated our needs well.
Great tapas and happy hour specials.
Great food undeserving of the LOUSY SERVICE. Sat next to the server computer station and we were still ignored! "Booths" are atrocious so insist on a table which will have hard seats but at least it's a chair. Otherwise you are on a short bench leaning against a wall with no padding and no space. No way to have a romantic date or business conversation. Just awkward and clearly designed to make you want to leave quickly... which is exactly what we did. They're turning the tables but missing so much more revenue from people moving on to eat elsewhere. If you must go (and you've been warned), make your tip reflect the terrible service you get. Maybe they'll get the message eventually. Or train a new crew.
