Excellent brunch spot!! The best breakfast we’ve had out in awhile.
Service was incredibly slow and spotty. It took forever to get our food and they brought our salad along with our entrée. They never cleared our plates or offered more water. I had to ask repeatedly to have the heater turned on and to get a glass of wine. Our server was incredibly sweet, but absent and seemed overwhelmed.Salmon was delicious. The dressing on the wedge salad was not very good. Pretty atmosphere.
I really like the spacious dining under the trees with the little whit picket fence all around. My sweet server looked after me when my friend never showed up. She was so kind and concerned over my anxiety which I thought most unusual. My only drawback was the simplicity of the very small menu, but that won’t keep me from coming back soon!
We ate outside on the patio twice - both dinner and lunch. Our favorite dish is an arugula salad with candied nuts and goat cheese. It was so delicious we had it for both meals! In addition, the Shakshuka is excellent. It has more of a cumin flavor than others we have had and was nicely spiced with a crunch that we think is chickpeas. It's a great place to try this dish if you have never had it. The NY steak was very good. We were pleased with both meals.
There is a very very limited menu offering very few dining options
One of our favourites
Good food. Nice service.
Love this restaurant and the bakery. Great menu, local ingredients, and location.
Best brunch in Santa Barbara!! Service was spectaulcar. Will definitely be visiting again!
First lunch at a restaurant in a year.
Could not have been nicer.
There weren't enough outdoor heaters for our table to have one, that would have made the experience a little better as it was cool once the sun set.
We were looking for a place to have dinner, during a very popular time of day. Goat Tree was available without a wait, which should have given us a pause.
Though this restaurant is situated in a corner with a great potential, especially with its huge outdoor space, everything about it was sub par. Working short staffed, with watered down paper menus, with patio heaters out of gas, it could have been a fast food destination, which was not what we had in mind. After a couple of cocktails, which were good, and one overpriced appetizer, we decided to have dinner elsewhere.
brunch was SO good!
Our waiter was not very nice! No personality! My husband was asking which 2 entree is better and he just shrugged his shoulder. I asked for Splenda for my coffee but was not given. All the waiters looks like rushing and it was not a busy day. I did not feel like dining in one of the nice hotel Californian Hotel at all. We drove from far to experience a good brunch and expecting a good service but was very disappointed.
It was a great place to get a bite and enjoy the city.
The food was delicious! The staff is doing a great job though thestrying times!
My husband and I absolutely loved sitting out in the courtyard. The view was outstanding and even having to be outside because of Covid the ambience was perfect. We were there for brunch so the mimosas were just right and I had the lemon ricotta pancakes which were light and fluffy.
Great food and service!
Great food in a special setting on State. Love the breakfast as well
Delicious brunch!!! Best lemon ricotta pancakes ever!!!
One of my fave spots for breakfast in Santa Barbara. The pastries, chia pudding, and avocado toast are amazing!
Good atmosphere and service (very attentive and polite).
Ate here for Valentine's Day dinner and was very underwhelmed by the meal. Ordered a Caesar Salad without croutons (gluten issue), and added salmon (an extra $10). Was the smallest piece of salmon I've ever been served at a restaurant, on top of plain lettuce with some sprinkled cheese. Would have taken a photo but phone was dead. Left super unsatisfied after about a $150 meal.
Other person ordered a steak and it was fine, but not much better than an $8 hotel steak we had the night before.
Restaurant was only about 50% capacity--seems to be much better vibe during brunch as was crowded next morning we walked by.
Wish I ate somewhere else.
Service was slow and wait times were terrible.
food is okay, very limited menu. They need to figure out some things beyond a pretty patio space.
Great location.. right in downtown Santa Barbara-
Nice outdoor set up !
Our waitress Sophia was wonderful-
One suggestion: you should add at least 2 or 3 Vegan ( not vegetarian) but Vegan options -
Thank You !
Lovely outdoor space and great food
Quite and safe. Tables were over 6-feet a part. We enjoyed our 3PM dinner.
Took recommendation from Hannah Ann Sluss’s Instagram account, thought it was going to be stellar, but overall not impressed. Waited 30 minutes for our drinks, and the food ended up coming out before. After we got food, waited another 10 min for us to finally get drinks. Both food and drinks were just average, nothing spectacular. Don’t waste money going here.
Wonderful food and service in a lovely atmosphere.
Much better than expected (hotel affiliated restaurants frequently disappoint). Very friendly service, charming dinner setting, excellent social distancing, and very good food.
Located in the heart of Santa Barbara's thriving dining, shopping and historic district, it offers dining indoors in a handsome, fashionable setting or in a lovely outdoor, landscaped patio, beautifully illuminated. A varied menu, we had salads, but all was superbly prepared and presented. Truly excellent service and very friendly.
Salmon was very good. Grilled asparagus was awesome.
Great atmosphere. Food was incredible, we ordered the frittata and salmon toast. Both I’d highly recommend. Outdoor dining area had the tables distanced appropriately from each other.
Nice outside seating area. Decent food. Right by Hotel Californian
A very nice place to have brunch and dinner. Not too far of a walk down to the beach. The service was superb and the food was good. But not enough value for your money. A frittata at $15 and turkey sandwich at $16, that wasn't including a side either. But with it being Santa Barbara and the location, I guess I understood why. We really wanted to try Blackbird, but unfortunately it was still closed. The pumpkin spice and chocolate croissants were absolutely delicious with our morning coffee though! And the mango macaron was very unique and tasty.
The hip music adds to the setting that feels like you are in a tropical zone. Menu is limited and main course items were so so but the drinks and appetizers were great
Brunch was exceptional highly recommend chicken and waffles
They missed our order.
Food and service was fine but we had to wait 10 minutes extra even with reservations !
Beautiful courtyard, food was delicious, and service was excellent. A little expensive but expected for the area.
