Cocktails were amazing as was the Suda bowl and the Poke bowl. We sat outside on a Friday at rush hour so there was some traffic noise. Super enjoyable overall.

I've eaten at Suda 4 times in the past 2 weeks during my holiday in Santa Cruz and have absolutely loved everything about each experience. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable, the wine list is varied with excellent wines, and the food is phenomenal! I've has the BLTA for lunch twice, with the Caesar kale salad, and it was very fresh and excellent. The fried artichoke appetizer was fun for all, and I loved the fish tacos as well. Food came out at the perfect timing, not long wait at all. The specialty cocktails are fabulous as well. Love Suda, will be back, and highly recommend!

Food was good but service was horrible. Manager didn’t care that we had to sit on wet chairs, offered to lay newspapers down for us. The whole staff acted like it was an inconvenience that we were dining at their restaurant. No acknowledgment of the birthday we were celebrating. The food is not delicious enough for you to overlook the bad customer service.

I was recommended this place by a few friends in the area. The ambiance is great. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The drinks were great. Now we get to the food. I’m the executive chef of a restaurant myself so I say this wholeheartedly. The menu isn’t very cohesive. There isn’t a very thoughtful concept that runs through the menu. Everything that I ate was very very under seasoned. The main course I had was the squid ink pasta and chili shrimp. The saffron cream sauce tasted like warm milk and had no depth of complexity to it. The shrimp were cooked well but were covered in chili flakes. It was a bow of mush pretty much. No contrast in textures. As I sat for my meal I heard 2 other tables complain about their food as well. So overall this place is great for good drinks and what not but the food is lacking.

Yummy food. We were a group of 4. Sat on the patio for a wonderful brunch. All fresh ingredients, service was fast and friendly. It was fun seeing all the old cars going by, a great beach vibe in pleasure point.

I've been here twice and loved it both times! Not only are the staff friendly and helpful, but the service is pretty fast too. You won't have to wait too long to get drinks and appetizers, even when the place is pretty packed. Food is pricy but its so worth it, it is so good. They have a limited menu but for a reason, you can tell they have perfected what they offer.

We were new to town and were blown away by everything at Suda. Especially the delicious, effortless vegetarian options. Servers were attentive and over-communicative about our wait on drinks, which was appreciated. We'll be back!

This restaurant is fantastic. I almost forgot that we have a pandemic, though they are very cautious... it was just such a nice evening! The burger is the best in SC, but anything on the menu is excellent! Highly recommend - patio is very nice!

My wife had the poke bowl. My son and I had burgers. My daughters had the kid’s chicken strips. We all liked our food. Afterward, we shared a few desserts and the blueberry cobbler was especially good. The mixed drinks were also really good. I don’t usually write reviews, but this was a good experience for the 5 of us.

Loved our first out of the house meal since March. Lovely patio, friendly service, and I felt safe. There was a leaf blower (!) making noise but that couldn’t detract from the fun food and drink and our pleasure at returning to one of our favorite spots. Yea, wear your mask!
