After soaking in the TRB’s Santa Barbara mission architecture, you’ll enter and be greeted by a triple arched Brunswick mahogany bar. Large bowls of colorful citrus for making cocktails sit atop a twenty-foot long bar perfect for grabbing a glass of wine or a bite to eat. As you explore further towards the display kitchen, you enter our lounge, also referred to as the wine library. Knotted wood shelves display our wines, divided up by wine region. Windows surround the North side of the dining room, allowing our guests to gaze out onto the fountain in our courtyard. I describe the décor as thoughtful and collective, creating little vignettes for dining areas. We offer two separate outdoor dining experiences: our courtyard with full service and our front porch great for appetizers, drinks and lounging.

We’ve been coming to the Tin Roof since it opened years ago… I’m glad to see that it is back up to its nice level of diners!

We ordered salads pizza short ribs and a steak… Generally the food was good..too much dressing on the salads… the short rib was a little tough…and the steak was ordered medium rare but arrived well done.. this is actually the first time that our food was different than what was expected.. ..they were concerned when I mentioned it and then immediately took it back and replaced it.. !!!!.. and it was delicious!…. and they took it off the bill. I didn’t expect or need that but that speaks to the quality of the management and staff of the restaurant .. thank you Tin Roof and we will be back as usual!!

Excellent food. We had the oysters and calamari as appetizers, halibut and fish n chips as the entree and a fruit crisp as dessert. The server was excellent, helpful without being obtrusive. Nice place, a little on the loud side, but not too much that we couldn't have a normal conversation. Highly recommend.

My first time here and we wanted to sit outside. The hostess let us know the front ‘porch’ was available but not the back patio. This was perfect. We ordered the Indian Spiced Spinach Dip which I am still talking about, it was soooooo good. I had the short rib pozole and my friend had the tomato basil soup, both were delicious. I can’t wait to go back.

I use Tin Roof for client dinners and it is always well received. We had a party of 8 and they were very complimentary. The food was very good, I had the Halibut and it was excellent. We sat inside and it was comfortable, not too loud.

Great restaurant with notable decor and food.

We ordered the Indian spinach dip, pizzas, lobster ravioli, and the fish and chips. We got an apple crumble dessert at the end too. Food came at a good pace and very delicious. The portion and price for the dishes were great especially for the area. They have a great selection of beer and craft cocktails too!

Service was amazing and accommodating. Definitely would come here again :)

We had dinner in the courtyard area and loved the ambience. Much quieter than inside, where it can be quite loud and difficult to carry on a conversation. The Food was superb, and the service was spot on!

The meal was definitely more expensive including the wine selection. Food was much better than on prior visits. Sitting on the patio was great, much better than porch. Waitress was excellent.

Very loud indoors! Had to ask ppl at the table to speak up multiple times. Everything else great tho- food, service. I’ll come back- but either sit outdoors or come during a non-peak time. Too frustrating not to be able to hear people sitting right next to me. I’m in my 40’s with no hearing issues either lol.

The cocktails are creative and delicious. The brussel sprouts were a little oily, but had nice acid from the capers and lemon juice. Scallops were perfectly cooked.

We haven’t been here in almost 2 years and it was good to be back. A great atmosphere with delicious food. I only wish their menu noted GF and servers were more knowledgeable on gluten free options. I always feel like I’m taking a chance having celiac, but it’s a great place to go with friends.

We had an excellent experience at Tin Roof Bistro. They were able to accommodate us in a large booth and added two extra chairs so we were all nicely spread out and the elderly folk in our group were nice and comfy. The service was great and the food as always was impeccable! This is one of our favorite local restaurants that we shared with some visitors from Sweden who were very impressed! We will be back again soon!

Grabbed dinner with a friend and we were lucky enough to get a back patio table on the stairs. Our server was amazing! We ordered drinks and the Brussel Sprouts to start. The. The fabulous Pumpkin Soup and Beet Salad were our dinner. More than enough food and too full to even think about dessert. All around an enjoyable evening..

Tuesday nights in the courtyard… fabulous live jazz ensemble. So my noise level rating was a little higher but so worth it.

Hostess who sat us neglected to give us menus. Server who wanted to take our drinks order had to come back with menus. Awkward.
