Outpost at the Goodland
Book your next event with us
This was my third time here. Once again, our group had fun focusing on the small shared plates, without the entree offerings. Everything was great.
Great brunch place. Beautiful patio design, nice ambiance and casual vibe. Food is very good and service excellent. We go there regularly when visiting our UCSB student.
We were greeted right after sitting down. Someone was always around to fill our glass of water. I enjoyed the wine and my friend liked the cocktails. The sauce on the brussel sprouts was so delicious! The fish was cooked very well and the skin was perfectly crispy. My friend really liked the sweet potatoes. I will definitely go back. Service was great.
Lovely atmosphere especially on the patio. Service was excellent from start to finish as was our food.
The staff was excellent. Ambiance is warm and personable. But the food was bad.
We really enjoyed our experience and loved the decor and atmosphere. We had fun trying different things off the small plate menu. The fish tacos were delicious.
We made a 9:15 reservation and the restaurant closed @ 9:30 and we felt rushed
It was a beautiful location, food and service were fantastic
They really fell flat on there face! We got seated right away and very welcoming, we sat for over 10 min. For a drink order or water brought to the table we had to ask for water. She finally took the drink order. We ordered our food after that food started coming out before the drinks came and came out separate and far apart. I went for salt and pepper and we only had pepper on table it was empty this was the am??? Had to chase her down for that then she brought only salt and no pepper had to ask for that. Finally got salt and pepper and then the chicken sausage never showed up had to ask 2 times for that. Then the bill came and there was drinks that was not ours and they never even took the meal off that was wrong and took forever. Service was very disappointing and unorganized
But pricy. Chilaquiles were delish... the French toast was not
The food was interesting and delicious. Our waiter Adam was excellent. The patio has such a nice atmosphere. Hidden gem in Santa Barbara
Nice little spot tucked behind the parking lot of this Kimpton Hotel. The food was good as was the service. We'd visit again if we were in the area.
Had incredible dinner service, food and ambiance. My wife had ramen on a Sunday night and I was jealous! Must go too and seating on patio was great.
The menu and drink selection are exciting so we couldn't wait to try several items. The waitstaff are accommodating and attentive. There was a minor incident that was immediately rectified so we were very grateful for their hospitality and attention. We would love to come back and try other dishes.
Fried cauliflower and aioli was great and enough for 4. Seabass lettuce wraps were tasty but messy
Had a wonderful time, great environment and the food was amazing! Was pleasantly surprised with their burratta. Just wow!
We love this “little jewel” in Goleta! Our forth visit, as usual everything was just lovely. The food was great, specialty cocktails innovative and fun, service absolutely awesome. Special kudos to our Sever, Adam, who made the evening extra-delightful.
We had a nice relaxing dinner at the Outpost. Food was served quickly, presented beautifully, and was exactly as ordered. Outside seating was comfy too.
It was our first time at Outpost, and it won’t be the last!
Fantastic food and cocktail menu, we had a blast.
Luis was a delight... Extremely attentive to details and very personable yet not intrusive, he made our experience memorable.
Keep up the good job and we’ll see you soon on our next visit to SB!
Great spot for dinner before a show at Campbell Hall. Kimpton Properties are always fun. We enjoyed dinner on the patio at the Goodland. Creative cocktails and delicious food.
The food was very good but the service was horrible.
Very pleasant patio dining with good service and good kale salad w. salmon as well as terrific burger.
The food was great! Really nice flavors, and not too expensive. Fun atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Main dishes are great, but desserts except for ice cream are poor.
Excellent Food and Service in a wonderful restaurant. Food and Service was quick and very helpful. this is a place that I would highly recommend.
Good solid dining experience from cocktails thru meal. Steak tartar is daughters favorite plate to share. have never been here when its really been crowded...so, hard to imagine it not being a pleasant experience or not being able to speak in a normal voice. Service is good.
Good food good service
We were visiting Santa Barbara and this is the first restaurant we tried. We did not realize it was inside a hotel. It appears to be a good spot for meeting after work. The menu had a good mix of “bar food” and dinner menu, American, Asian, Italian. We started with the Brussels sprouts. The roasted garlic aioli took the edge off the bitterness os the sprouts. I opted for the pork bao bun and paired it with one of their cocktails. The bun was nice and soft as it should. My daughter had the special, braised veal with polenta (silky texture, yum), and hubby had the pork chops. All were very tasty but somewhat heavy handed on the salt (request to lighten up on the salt). We also tried the fried carrot cake with white chocolate and cream cheese and ice cream. Should have left the carrot cake un-fried. Paired dessert with the Zinfandel port. Overall, had a good time. We will consider going back when in town again.
Food and drinks were excellent. Room was cold and a bit noisy though.
Lovely flavors and super cool server. I keep coming back.
The ambiance of this place is adorable! We sat outside, where there were fire pits and cute lighting. We loved the vibe of the place!
Service was terrific. We ordered mostly small bites from the app menu and while delicious, many of the dishes were very spicy and I like spice. We ate outside, and as the evening chilled they turned on the gas heaters and it was lovely.
Food was wonderful and creative. Service was pretty okay. Nice enough server but delivered to us someone else’s order. Simple enough mistake. Only real complaint was that there was a gentleman smoking on the patio which was most unpleasant. We spoke to our server who then mentioned it to the manager who happened to be at the next table. As far as we could tell, nothing was said to the gentleman as he finished his cigarette and returned to his table.
Unexpected pleasure. Excellent, imaginative California/fusion menu.
We went to dinner and came back the hot day for lunch.
Terrific flavorful vegi appetizers, just right fish tacos, moist and flaky, not needing heavy sauce Asian inspired sea bass lettuce wraps with herbs, ridiculously good pork chop.
I am not into distressed look, but this place does the beach shack retro vibe so well that I bought in.
Birthday and so much fun! Our waiter was the best!
Just ok- very limited menu
No specials- no soup
Probably won’t return
I can't say enough GOOD things about the service and attention we received! The food was amazing and the menu presented easily for us to "just keep on trying great new things".
This visit was for a group dine of 10 ... I look forward to coming back for an intimate dinner for 2 next time.
I want to love this place but the slowness of the service and food always becomes a problem. I’m not sure why either. Servers don’t seem happy. But also don’t seem to be too attentive. Consistently happens over and over. And there has been no guarantee the food will not be burnt or prepared wrong when it shows up. I am taking a break from it for a few months.
So retro and vibrant. Very comfortable and inviting. I noticed they're dog friendly too!
A real find in Goleta. Lots of vegetarian options. Delicious.
