Lovely neighborhood vibe. Excellent food and almost personal service. Overbooked so wait was long despite a reservation - so plan on waiting on Fridays and Saturdays. A few non ice filled drinks (such as Manhattan variations) would improve the drink choices. But these are small things. We would definitely visit again..

I love the vegetable focus on the menu and everything was delicious. Our server was so lovely and engaging. We were a party of 5 and I didn’t love sitting in the back room as there was less atmosphere, but everything else was perfect.

The drinks are really good! The waitress was super nice and friendly. The food is good too, but it’s quite expensive for the size of the portions.

The food was just okay - nothing special. Great decor. Service okay - nothing special there either. Don't plan on going back - there are far greater restaurants in Montreal! :)

Interesting menu that changes for the summer. Lots of vegetarian options and great wine selection including a few orange wines.

Simply a wonderful restaurant. Food was terrific and the menu was varied, so you can really find something you'll like. The wine list was interesting, though I'd prefer more wines by the glass options. Decor and ambiance felt unique and had character.

Vraiment très bon. Seul bémol, lors de notre passage il n'y avait pas de climatisation. Tellement chaud que nous avons cessé de manger. Dommage :(

Loved the special cocktails and nonalcoholic drinks equally. The De Puy lentil dip was delicious and the mussels were outstanding. Unusual flavour combinations and beautiful colourful presentations enhanced the experience. I plan to return soon!

Great food and service. I ordered a cocktail that they didn't have that evening, and didn't like the one i had to choose instead. They immediately offered another one for free, I didn't even have to ask for it. The food is amazing ! Definitely my favorite restaurant in Montreal :)

I discover a very good table at a very price, the food was excellent and the menu Healthy. The Wines and cocktails are various and I love the fact they offer many organic options.
It's not a pretentious place even if them offer quality product. The staff is very Nice and always smilling. Good place to go I recommend it !

Good food, service decent but perogies way over cooked and chewy. Will stick to brunch rather than diner.

Le Santa Barbara est l'un de mes restos préférés à Montréal. Le service est toujours super : Steven, Philomène et les autres sont tous sympathiques et professionnels. C'est un pur bonheur de s'y rendre. Tout est bon : des coquetels aux plats principaux en passant par les desserts. J'ADORE !
Bises à l'équipe et bonne continuation !

Nous avons adoré notre expérience
Les plats étaient excellents, l'entrée de tartare de saumon et la salade étaient vraiment délicieuse

Très intéressant pour les végétariens, c'est toujours différent et délicieux comme menu proposé

Le service est toujours amicale et on est toujours bien accueilli
