Always great food, the noise level is a little unpredictable, we had a kid running/screaming around next to us and a dog licking food off the table lol, love dogs but it was a little too far.

A foodie find! We loved the food. Interior looked great but we choose outdoor seating due to COVID thus a bit more road noise, however, we noticed traffic drops off considerably at 8pm so timing could be your friend. We were impressed and will recommend to close friends without hesitation.

Yummmmmm! Sooooo delighted with food, ambiance, service! Haven’t had this completely perfect restaurant experience in a long while. Our new favorite restaurant for sure! The outside seating was comfy and well spaced, the servers were absolutely charming and professional, and the food…oh my! The salmon was local and perfectly cooked to our request of not rare…still moist and flakey, done with a lovely searing and seasoning which was perfect. The copious amount of broccoli I was also cooked and seasoned to perfection….whoa! My lobsters ravioli was in a tomato cream sauce which wasn’t too heavy, it was just right. Super good wine list/cocktail list too, what’s not to love? What a treat, we will be back with more friends sooner than later!

Suda is a MUST visit every time we go to Santa Cruz, luckily we have family there so it's several times a year. My son and daughter in law joined us this trip, their first time at Suda. My daughter in law had the bagel with lox, something I would have never thought of ordering, but of course it was AMAZING. My son is a huge benedict fan, so he had the portola, and of course they started with a round of your bacon bloody mary's. Thank you!! again!

We were given dirty menus, both the food and beer menus, very poor form!!
Service was terrible in every way. Our server was friendly, but we had to hunt her down to find our drinks, food was very slow and had to get up to find her to get our bill. The outdoor venue had broken/noisy heaters.
We will not go back.

I don’t know why it was so popular as the food was not good. The wine was terrible. We both had a margarita and it was not well mixed either. Very expensive - almost $200 for 2 with no dessert. Won’t be going back

The service was weirdly bad for how good the food and drinks were. All the servers were really polite, but it did not seem like anyone was assigned to our table, and no one was coming to check on us. We could see them attending to other tables, including people seated after us, and then they would walk right past us. More than 15 minutes after we were seated, I finally managed to flag down one of the servers to put in our order and ask for some water. Throughout the night, we had to flag down servers to get anything else. I ended up asking for the check early (and waited a long time to get it).

The artichoke appetizer and the cocktails were great! My burger was delicious, as was my partner’s squid ink pasta. We would have ordered more food and drinks if our service was not so neglectful, but it had been over an hour and we did not want to be stuck and ignored for the rest of the evening.

The service seemed pretty good for the tables around us, so I’m hoping that our experience was an outlier. The food and drink were good enough that I would be willing to give it another try, but tonight’s experience was pretty unpleasant overall.

Mother's Day dinner was not at all what we had expected. My son and I asked for the steak but they over cooked them. I ate mine because I was starved. My son sent it back and the second steak they served him was almost completely raw!!! He couldn't eat it. The salad they served with it had too much vinegar. The waiter apologized and didn't charged but the courtesy dessert they served to share between three people was minuscule. My son left the restaurant quite hungry!

Overall great but disappointed again! This is the 4 the reservation for suda with open table I’m told didn’t qualify for points even though I’m opted in and used to get points with suda. Why use the app when I can always walk in and get a table?

We've been going there for 5+ years and never had a bad experience. The food is always delicious and the service are awesome. Their cocktails are perfect. It's the perfect date night spot - as well as a perfect place for brunch on the weekends.

The food was good as usual, but unfortunately the service was not like it usually is! Our appetizer (Artichoke) took nearly 30 minutes to come out and was cold. The burgers took nearly 20 minutes to come out and were just about OK. Our drinks took a very long time to come out also. It was a very disappointing visit from a service standpoint.
