We have eaten at The Wine Cask and Intermezzo many times over the years and had our usual expectations of good food and service. We arrived a few minutes early and were promptly seated and given water. Then we waited. After ten or fifteen minutes our (very friendly) waiter arrived and took our drink order. Then we waited. Another ten or fifteen minutes passed by and we received our cocktails, which were very good. We placed an order for a shared appetizer (oysters) at that time. We sipped our drinks, and waited. I caught the waiter's eye and ordered a bottle of Sancerre to go with the oysters, and we placed our order for a salad and the main courses. The oysters arrived and then we waited some more for the wine - another ten minutes or so. The oysters and the wine were very good. The plates were cleared, the salad arrived and then we waited another thirty minutes for the main course, but we did have wine, which was rapidly depleting. During the wait I ordered a glass of red wine to go with my main course and it arrived quite quickly. It sat there for the next little while until the main course came. The food was good and plentiful and our waiter still friendly. When we had finished eating, the table was cleared and we were offered desert - we ordered one to share. It was now well into the evening and the dessert came quite quickly, and was very good. I can only suppose that the restaurant was understaffed, because there were not many customers but the service was incredibly slow. No-one wants to be rushed through a meal, but we endured significant waits throughout the evening from the moment we sat down. In addition, the birthday aspect was completely ignored. Why the restaurant asked whether this was a special occasion seems pointless as it was never addressed. Overall a disappointment, but good food.

Food was delicious as always. Little Gem salad with grilled Salmon was fresh and tasty. Exotic Mushroom Pizza with white sauce was AMAZING!! And the Crispy Chicken Cutlet with lemon-butter-caper sauce and arugula was really great! The owner brought out a complimentary birthday Creme Brûlée for my girlfriends birthday! Really thoughtful and delicious!! Ask to sit in front of the fireplace… best seat in the house… You won’t regret it! Thank you Intermezzo… once again fantastic! IMHO, one of the best places in SB!!

I brought a few friends from Napa and Long Beach to check out the scene and we were not disappointed Ted. The staff were friendly and welcoming. And as always the food was exceptional. From presentation and quantity to exceptional taste and balance. I’ll be back again soon!

Surprised that special dinner salad was $26 - I’m not talking entree - I’m talking side salad. Kitchen must have gotten backed up - it was tight getting g out the door to the show on time.

Much more complete menu (now food to share, pizzas and full menu items) and very tasty! My wife enjoyed the Meatballs as her main course, and I loved my Mussels. We sat outside in the courtyard between Intermezzo and The Wine Cask and it felt like being in a small plaza in Europe. We definitely will be back!

I have never asked to speak to a chef and thank them. This pizza changed all that. Layers of different flavors presented on this charred crispy crust that gave way to this killer warm fluffy goodness. Savory and sweet was perfectly balanced with what looks like a pepperoni pizza but hides honey, and crunchy pistachios underneath the melting cheese…OMG so good 🤤 I also want to take a moment and shout out the incredible staff that waited on me and my lady. One of the partners of the restaurant, Diane came by our table and chatted with us for a little bit and asked us what brought us in. Adding to that John the owner also made his way to us and made us feel right at home explaining the sophisticated rock and roll vibe that makes their restaurant fine and hip. Love the vintage black and white Rock n Roll photos. We always loved the wine cask…but somehow it’s even better. Looking forward to making our way their many more times.

                                                                                                                          I was a regular at Wine Cask but for many years it has been closed for quite some time so I decided to try Intermezzo bar and Cafe. I took my guests visiting from Paris here for dinner. The service was very slow. A waiter poured water right away. There were many waiters but they just passed by us. We waited for a good 15 min before a waiter came to take our order. We ordered the pate, the pizza for the kids, salmon, clams, fries and prawn. It took a long time for the foods to come out. The pizza didn't look any different compared to those from Domino or Rusty. Actually Rusty pizza is better. The pizza was soggy. The kids each had one slice and didn't want a second slice. The fries were okay, we had better. The pate was tasteless. The toasts for the pate and for the clams had a lot of cream on top. Terrible idea! You eat toast with pate and clams, you do not need to put cream because it changes the taste of the foods you eat with it. Furthermore, toasts were soggy instead of crispy since they put too much cream on top. The clams dish was too salty. I was so embarrassed and must apologize my guests for the terrible foods. No way I would come back there.

Thank you for visiting. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. It would be helpful if you could share with me specifics as to where we dropped the ball on your table. And, I'm sorry you feel our menu is limited, as we offer 40 menu items ranging from appetizers, salads, steak, poultry, seafood, shellfish, pizza, pasta, burgers and multiple nightly specials. I'm also confused as we gladly honor all modification requests when possible.

When I showed this confirmation upon arrival, the hostess said that OpenTable never communicated the outdoor table confirmation to the restaurant.

We're constantly striving to improve our offering so I appreciate your candor. Yes, you can submit seating requests via Open Table, not sure why that didn't show. However, seating requests are not guaranteed, especially on busy Lobero Theater nights. As a fellow SB Rotarian I thank you for your input. Our team works extremely hard to exceed expectations... my sincerest apologies for missing the mark during your visit.
