We had the meatballs, and we both felt that they were nothing special. The menu didn't seem all that interesting. On the plus side, very friendly with great service.
Beautiful patio, service and food! We love taking guest in from out of town to this local gem!
Excellent waiter. Slightly long wait for food order to be taken, but not a major problem.
Everything was wonderful, always love outside in courtyard. Food and service were excellent
The California Bruschetta was excellent! But way too much pepper in Burrata salad
We had a wonderful experience at Smithy. I have been there a number of times and always enjoyed a particular champagne they had on the wine list. On this visit, I was disappointed to find no champagne available; sparking wine but no champagne. Our server said, “Let me look around and see what I can find. “ She came back with a lovely bottle of champagne and our evening was off to a great start. Three delicious dishes later, shared between two of us, we were more than satisfied. Good wine, great food, and relaxing ambiance.
The decor, ambiance and outdoor patio are amazing. Food was delicious and well presented. It was a bit pricey, but what nice place isn't?
Great early dining on the patio. Private setting and fabulous service.
It was just okay.
sometimes the speakers on the patio are placed to closely to the customer and tables.
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Our server, Stefan, was outstanding: attentive, charming, handsome, efficient. We attended an 8pm show at the Granada Theater (next door). Stefan took care of us so well, never made us feel rushed, and ensured that we got to the theater on time. The food & drinks were delicious. The ambiance and setting are beautiful. We highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.
This is our go to place in Santa Barbara. The area is outside and just a great spot for dinner. You will not go wrong trying out this place.
Absolutely wonderful for our business dinner! The server was patient and very sweet the whole night!
Bad service! Waiters confused an disorganized. Split Check had confusing tips amounting to 40% or more.
Wonderful, friendly service. Very attentive. Food was delicious, and everyone wants to return again.
Excellent for any occasion with lots of people or just a few or all alone. Great any way you want to do it.
The food was medioker, however prices were top Dollars. The noise level inside the restaurant was unbearable (Too many hard services.). A conversation was impossible. We had a table reservation however we still had to wait for 15 minutes upon arrival. Overall: Not a satisfying experience.
The food and ambiance are spot on, but the service was a bit slow.
Patio dining is really nice. Great food. Best scallops I’ve ever eaten
Too expensive. It was good, but not interested in the prices outside of restaurant week.
We came in for restaurant week to experience the delicious food and we were not disappointed. All 7 of us order from the fixed menu offered during restaurant week as there was something for everyone. I look forward to going back and enjoying more.
We went to this restaurant to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. It’s a beautiful restaurant, very trendy. It’s very loud if you sit inside. Try to book the patio if possible. The kitchen seemed to be in a bit of a disarray. Appetizers were coming to the table for some while others were getting their entrées at the exact same time. We were all eating at different times. We had to wait quite awhile for the last person to get her food. The table next to us had the same issues. They complained. We didn’t complain because we felt sorry for our server who had to deal with the people next to us. :-( The food was tasty. I think this would be a great restaurant if they could deal with the above issues. Additional staff would certainly help.
The meal was lovely, however we split the tab three ways at the end. They broke down the 20% tip at the bottom. Some wine was involved and we automatically included their suggested tip amount. Later that night we realized that we tipped three times the amount due. Very misleading.
Went on Friday the first day of SB Restaurant Week. It was chaos in the kitchen. They ran out of items and it took way too long to get food. The server was apologetic and we got free cocktails and a free bottle of wine. We will try again on a different night.
Super delicious and great vibe. Friendly staff and a wonderful outdoor seating area
Together with long time friends....fun evening by all.
The wait staff is so friendly, attentive and polished without feeling like a looming presence. The bolognese pasta is fabulous. It’s not on the drinks menu but the vesper martini is what keeps me coming back. Well, that and the unparalleled beauty of the back patio.
We dined on Valentine’s Day. They replaced the regular menu which is filled with nice small plates, with a more limited choice. That said, my salmon dish was delicious. But my husband had skirt steak— which did not impress.
We will return for the spectacular garden space and look forward to the regular menu.
Everything was wonderful, the food, the ambience and decor were superior, good service
However, the noise level was too high, we could not hear each other.
This place is wonderful. We plan on returning. Great service. Great food. Really terrific.
Great food with great service. Always enjoy having dinner there.
The restaurant was closed upon arrival to our confirmed reservations. It was a let down.
The food was great, the waiter, Stefan was awesome. Love this place!
Love their patio and food! Sitting by the fire on a chilly night was perfect.
Fun and relaxed and love the high top tables for an informal get together.
Excellent food, interesting place, a bit loud near our table.
Everyone working at this restaurant was so kind and helpful, the food was incredible, might I say a little overpriced but it absolutely worth it. I would recommend to anyone with a little extra money and wanting a special dinner.
Great ambiance. Great value for food. Excellent salmon dish.
The food was fantastic! Flavors that I would not make at home. That is what I go out for.
A big bummer for us was the sticky table's. It really takes away from the dinning experience. It is also loud. I highly recommend that they use table cloths. It would fix the sticky table situation and help absorb the noise. I realize it is an added expense to clean them. But probably worth it.
We've been many times and it's always fantastic. Our first place to take friends from out of town. Perfect in every way for any occasion.
