The steak came out well done and was supposed to be medium rare. It cost 70$ and the replacement steak was over salted
What an amazing way for us to spend our anniversary. We had a beautiful view of the ocean while we dined on expertly prepared steak and fish. While the temperature outside was chilly, there were plenty of heaters to keep us warm.
Our server, Rose, was fantastic; a true professional! She was thoughtful, attentive, friendly, and educated us on the menu as well as the restaurant and resort.
Of all the choices we could have made for a memorable night, Angel Oak was the perfect one.
The food was delicious. Pricey. Our server was friendly but awkward. He was forgetful and stubbled over his words. The lighting was too bright. Someone tried to dim the lighting but it was not successful.
Great food. Limited menu, not a lot of choices. Steak prices were much too high. Not justified. We like it but it’s not for everyone.
Server didn't know his stuff. Food came out late. The food was not worth the cost.
Great “top notch” restaurant. Great ambience, great staff, great menu selection and truly amazing food. Altogether a truly impressively delightful dining experience!!
Birthday dinner, service was good,
although food excellent,management fails to recognize that people do not appreciate being charged $11 a scallop $44 for four scallops insults the good judgment of their customers. Additionally,the menu indicates corn being served with this scallop dinner when in fact only four kernels of corn is served with dinner. I consider this a misrepresentation of the meal actually provided.
Amazing ocean views and food. Great service. Highly recommend it for dinner
One of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara. Nothing but good vibes
Beautiful view. Food as expected. Service was a bit slow
AWESOME! Great food, service and views. We'll definitely be going back!
It never disappoints. Excellent food, great ambiance and amazing service. We have to dine here every time we are at the Ritz. Love it and highly recommend it!!
Delicious rib eye steak, truffle fries and brussel sprouts. Amazingly attentive service. Ask about GF bread otherwise there is yummy parmesan buns for bread service.
My girlfriends and I loved our dinner at Angel Oak. It was our first time staying at Bacara and I found great reviews on Angel Oak via Yelp and Google and decided to give it a chance and it did not disappoint whatsoever.
The hostess was so sweet and accommodating to my friends and I, who were running late to our reservation. She made us feel welcomed and seated us right in front of the ocean for the most magnificent view of the ocean while the sun was setting.
Our server and sommelier were wonderful with their food and wine recommendations, providing us with many options to choose from, none of which disappointed. I highly recommend the bone marrow, Brussels sprouts, and rib eye (which was cooked to perfection).
I also want to give a shoutout to the bartenders who had their own unique twist on classic drinks such as their espresso martini, which is amazing.
Overall, this place is the perfect place for dinner with a beautiful view and great service. I cannot recommend it enough to everyone since I came earlier this week. I am looking forward to returning and enjoying more great food and drinks here!
Views are outstanding and the food, albeit, very expensive, is delicious and worth it. Note, a nice touch you can share the steaks with no sharing charge due to the very large size of cuts with no option to make them smaller. We will be back!
Amazing Restaurant and Food. My husband celebrated our 25th weeding anniversary at Angel Oak. Everyone from hosts to servers were friendly, warm and professional. Our server and the chef, happily accommodated my food sensitivities (no flour, no sugar). The food was delicious, the decor beautiful and the view of the ocean magnificent. We started with the mixed green salad and shrimp cocktail, and ate the salmon and sea bass entrees, with sides of jumbo asparagus and smashed fingerling potatoes. The portions were generous, presentation beautiful and food delicious. All was served promptly. The heat lamps suspended form beams high above kept me warm while sitting outside on a cool eve enjoying the gorgeous view of the ocean. It was my favorite dining experience of the year.
We had a lovely evening at Angel Oak, food was great and wine list has great options. Our sommelier was absolutely wonderful and she took great care of us the entire evening! Service was awesome as well. Thank You again for hosting us!
Amazing food, staff, and view!! Definitely a must if you are staying here.
Superb and attentive customer service with beautiful ocean view. Thank you making my husband’s birthday dinner a memorable experience. Food was delicious.
We were celebrating my daughter graduation!
Money was no object. Exquisite restaurant and service. Had the sea bass and ribeye with Brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Mixed drinks for the specialty menu and the ganache dessert. Beautiful presentation in all and delightfully tasty. Will go back
Absolutely wonderful- the team was so accommodating and friendly (even gave our daughter a blanket!), the food was fantastic and the view was stunning.
Phenomenal service and the food was great definitely an overall wonderful oceanside dining experience
Excellent food. Wait staff very attentive. Beautiful view over the Pacific Ocean.
Superb! Nice celebration.
Beautiful dinner location and amazing food. Have never been disappointed here!!
Elvis is a RockStar!! Great recommendations and knowledge of menu. Great conversation! Excellent service!
We enjoyed the meal and the great service by Maya and Arturo. We also received special attention and a lovely dessert gratis for our anniversary. The food was beautifully presented and tasty but was a little over-salted and the steak was overdone; otherwise, we would have given it a five.
From being greeting to the wait staff the food all excellent definitely a place for any occasion
Service was great. Food was bad
My wife and I were visiting Santa Barbara for our 26th anniversary. We chose Angel Oak as the spot for our dinner.
The location was amazing. One of the best I’ve seen. I loved how they greeted us by name after we checked in. They wished us Happy Anniversary multiple times. It was really cool.
Our reservation was for 8:15 and we were seated around 8:05, which was great. We arrived early thinking we could get a drink at the bar but they took us right away.
The “hiccup” in our experience was that we waited over an hour from our appetizers to our main course. The waiter said he was very sorry for the delay, etc etc etc. He was great. Not sure if the disconnect with the chef and his team.
The food was great. We will return. Mistakes happen. It wasn’t a great experience but I am certain when we return, it will be awesome.
This was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The table had a stunning view, our server (Elvis) was passionate and takes his job seriously, and the food was delicious. Our kids (11 and 13) enjoyed it just as much as we did! Thank you!
Great view, fantastic food. Service was friendly but possibly overly attentive. But overall fantastic
Great view, excellent service, great food.
