Absolutely delicious food and beautiful view, thank you!
We were fortunate to get a wonderful table outside with a great view. The food was delicious, I had the Lemon ricotta cappellacci SB rock crab & saffron shellfish brodo, which was extremely flavorful, I enjoyed every bite. I also had a Lavender Spritz cocktail, very light and refreshing. Next time I’m in the area I will return.
Had a wonderful experience at Convivo with my girlfriend. The ambiance was perfect as I had imagined. Interior looked amazing!
I was low-key hoping to sit outside to embrace the beach view and we were fortunate to have been seated there.
Typically I prefer a booth within any restaurant but that beach view though! Lol.
Anyway, everything tasted amazing! Especially the cheesecake dessert! We definitely took pictures to share as I do not recall the names. Experience was very dreamy and suited my expectations.
My husband and I wanted to celebrate the end of the academic school year. We had a great time! Thank you!
While the food was enjoyable, the pacing was off. Our entrees were brought out before we had finished our appetizers. It threw off the being able to relax while enjoying a nice meal. I would go back for drinks and appetizers, but not dinner.
I'd been to Convivo pre-Covid 19 for happy hours that really turned into dinners. Their food is well prepared and the view and location are nice. I met a friend for lunch there recently and was informed by our waiter, AFTER we were seated, that the restaurant did not serve lunch after 1:30, and only the dinner menu was available. This was plainly ridiculous at that hour and obviously a way for the place to charge an extra fee per item - for the 2-3 lunch items that remained on the dinner menu. The service was good, the location and views, very good, the food good, above average, but not so incredible that I'd go there for lunch - again. Sad decision by management, but I guess they don't care about repeat customers.
Great location, friendly staff, good appetizers, tasty food.
Where ourt for our anniversary. No one said anything. To ou. Also no one offered us bread to begin with
But the food was delicius
Love the food, staff and the view. Had a great time.
Very great food!
we had a lovely dinner with a view of the ocean, a great oaky glass of chardonnay and a fantastic meal. We liked it so much we made reservations for a night from now.
Enjoyed the food. Salad was excellent. Pizzas were good too
Great location, food and staff awesome!!
It is such a gift finding a great restaurant like this! Amazing food, service And value! These dishes are meant to be shared! Malory, Sarah, Deshaun, Stephanie, And David B are all rock stars ⭐️
Our Veal Bolognese and Focaccia bread were outstanding as always. This is a wonderful restaurant with a great view of the ocean with outstanding service.
This has become our favorite restaurant. Whether it’s for their chicken or pizza, this restaurant has great tasting food, good service, a wonderful location by the beach in Santa Barbara, or for an nice, casual experience, Convivo hits all the most important things about a great restaurant.
Terrific! Great food and service!
Very relaxing place for Memorial Day brunch overlooking the ocean if seated at patio outside. The menu had lots of options and the food was delicious, especially their pizza - the crust was light and airy! Will definitely come back again.
Amazing food! Would definitely go back!
The value of food is not worth paying and tasted ok
Fantastic SB spot!!
The food was outstanding, unfortunately the service was slow and they appeared to be understaffed
Miss the happy hour pricing that made this spacious patio with ocean breezes from East Beach a great destination.
Re. Noise Level. We sat outside for lunch and the street noise is audible. Not too bad unless there's a siren or someone on a motorcycle.
Convivo is great!! Amazing beach location, great cocktail and food. What’s more to love?! Definitely recommend for any occasion.
Ambiance was very good. Outdoor patio was excellent. Staff need more training for better customer service.
Great service. Our server was attentive and made great recommendations. The food was delicious!
Amazing new santa barbara restaurant with beautiful scenery and ambience! Delicious fresh food from the local farmer’s market with amazing flavors
Everything was delicious- but we were sold a dessert that they called a fruit tart, but it was just berries on a plate.. for $10 😣
I loved the vibes and the service and food was really good. I don’t normally do reviews unless I really enjoyed my time !
Great place to have dinner! The service is good and the food is delicious.
Love this place so much! Great food, great locale, great servers.
A delicious and delightful dinner. We requested a quiet table, and it was quiet. The mixed grilled fish was smoky and perfectly cooked, even if the octopus was tougher than I would have liked. We all loved the evening, the location, the food, the unobtrusive yet attentive service.
Amazing food!! Appetizer, salad, main entrée and desert were all equally spectacular. We went back for brunch the next day. Another fantastic meal. You have to try this place!! Enjoy.
Usually try to avoid restaurants in hotels, but Covivo's outdoor seating area is lovely, the food was great, and the service was excellent. And the location, of course, right across from the beach, was exactly what I wanted for my first trip back to Santa Barbara in many years.
Beautiful ambience, delicious meal and friendly service. Great spot for outside brunch or lunch!!
Everything was great! I suggest the Lemmon pasta dish and the steak. All was labeled with allergy-friendly labels as well. Very helpful for anyone with concerns.
Food was outstanding
Service was great
Wonderful atmosphere and service!! Certain food is great, other not so great.
Great service. Food is amazing! The whole experience was above expectation.
