Slow night at the Outpost. The live music was way too loud to have a conversation. The food and drinks were mediocre and overpriced. It wasn’t crowded but we received the check right after eating saying “looks like things are coming to an end here.” We just wanted to sit and talk after dinner, and it was clear that they wanted everyone to leave to close the bar.
Short staffed, poor service. Burned chicken sandwich, good fries and salad. Not enough guacamole and no salsa for that pricey appetizer. Nice ambiance. We won’t be returning.
waitress was outstanding.
Food was awesome
Service and food were great
Great hotel bistro.
thanks for the Thanksgiving dinner-out time .We were hesitant about dining out during COVID-19, but you did an exellent job dispelling fears. All the wait staff wore masks, the tables had more that 6 feet between and the guests were respectfully low key. the outside patio was warm and cozy. Food was plentiful and delicious and plated artfully.
We really enjoyed the food and service was excellent!
The avacodo toast and locally sourced berries were delicious!
Everything was on time, and so delicious. Our waitress Alex was amazing. 10/10 would go again.
Went with a friend and we both had the pork chop main course. The flavor was GREAT!
BUT... and this is a pretty big but... our waitress thought 'still pink' meant 'well done'!!! When we assured her it meant 'just slightly less than medium', she seemed to get it. But both of our pork chops were WELL, WELL done! Under normal circumstances, I would have sent it back. However, we were on our way to a concert, so did not have the time to wait for new chops to be cooked. It's a shame, because the flavors and the prep of the dish was fantastic.
Great for breakfast and Sunday brunch! Love the decor and the atmosphere.
Great service and great food. We had an amazing date night and will be back again.
The Outpost restaurant has delicious food and a cute beach ambience. The service was outstanding - everyone was so friendly and courteous! I have dined here a few times and loved every dish & cocktail. I will definitely be coming back for the phenomenal food and staff!
Our dining experience was both relaxed, efficient and delicious. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Our beverages and food arrived promptly but we did not feel rushed to free up the table. The chef was available to answer questions and for us to express our gratitude for his care in the creation of the seasonal menu. The new offering of a boneless, braised short rib was a masterpiece. The food was beautifully plated all around. And the pot de creme and carmelized apple sundae were the perfect end to a lovely meal. We will definitely be back and tell our friends about the hidden gem in Goleta.
We ate here early on New Year's Eve. I had requested a table for six, and upon arrival there was no table set up for six. We worked that out successfully with the Hostess. My only negative comment is regarding their "special drinks". Stay away from them--order what you normally like.
All of us enjoyed our meal. The best fulfilling appetizer was the Beet Salad. Their Steak Tartare is also excellent. The most negative was this non-alcoholic drink that had some weird berry addition in it. Yech!
Otherwise, our server Adam helped make it a pleasant meal. Try the fried carrot cake!--great.
We’ve dined here in the past a few times but recently they redecorated and the walls are too yellow and the lights are too bright. It’s a bit like eating in a hospital cafeteria but the food is very good.
Great food, great venue, great staff! Nothing bad to say about the Goodland ((: Had the steak tartare, sea bass, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and wings - all delicious!!
Delicious Brunch served until 2:00pm 😀
Food and service was very good. Hope they expand their menu as it is small; but
small is better. Check their menu online before going so you know what they have.
Their steak tartare, pork bao buns, and burgers are excellent.
I only wish we’d known we couldn’t sit outside as we’d have come the following night. But as always, a wonderful Experience
Was a pretty cold on the deck. Service was also very slow at the start. Fantastic food.
They were very nice and acknowledged our Anniversary with a glass of wine. Very cute patio and the food was good !!!
I have been to this restaurant many times. Had many good experiences, but this last weekend was not one of them. TERRIBLE service (waited nearly 45 minutes for drinks). Kids running everywhere, chaos.
Tried to get a drink in the bar afterwards, and it was overrun with children. On a Saturday night!
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.
The food was great!! My friends and I ordered a few things so we could share! The french toast was so so so good. Everything was so yummy actually. There was live music during service, that was nice.
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!
