    My favorites are the unusual cocktails so delicious, and the changing menu of different flavors combined with top quality fish or beef or poultry. The portions are on the large side and not overpriced. Keep up the good work!

    It was lovely - great food and superlative service. Our group loved all our choices - seafood platter, hamburger and trout almandine all were delicious. The entrees were followed by a fresh blueberry tart with a pastry crumble and drizzled with what we think was a marscapone crème. Superb. Great service from Duschon and Ella. We will be back.

    The spaghetti carbonara was a joke. Bland and mushy and they used cream instead of the original recipe with egg yolks and parmesan mix. Really bad.

    We stayed at the Montecito Inn and decided to stay close for dinner after traveling. What a wonderful surprise it was to have such a fantastic dinner. Great service, great ambiance … Such a fantastic way to start our trip. We will definitely be back!

    Food was excellent but would be better if several of the choices were a bit less exotic.

    I just think the food quality is very mediocre. Worst Crudo we’ve ever had. The roast chicken was good, as was the burger… But not good enough for us to want to come back. I was also disappointed in their wine list. For Montecito, I expected more.
