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.

Had a reservation for 7:15, unfortunately didn’t get seated until almost 7:35. We got a great table on the interior patio on the last night of dining before LA was shut down again, due to COVID. Food was good, the waitstaff was OK, yet a bit forgetful. I definitely would like to dine at Tin Roof again under less stressful circumstances.

Our server Tish was amazing. Our dining experience was enhanced because of her. The food was fabulous. We had spicy tuna spring rolls, braised short ribs, fig and pig pizza and fish and chips. Highly recommend all of these dishes. We will be going back

We have been here twice now. Which is u common, because we rarely return to a place when out of town. Absolutely locked in to our radar now. Every item has been perfection. The food, the cocktails, the hostess, everything. The hostess calling us about our late reservation to advise we move up to avoid being rushed because of curfew starting. The level of service co ties all the way to an end of shift where our services changed and nothing went awry. Spent twice as much for the same level of service at other places. Compliments to the chef, the service staff, the bartender who took care of us on a birthday trip, and the whole management that keeps this place on point with every element. Eat here, especially at night in the courtyard. It’s flawless.

Had a reservation for 7pm and I had to wait an additional 20minutes to be seated. My food order was incorrect but they corrected it. Overall good experience would go back again but they need to work on reservations and not having us wait for a longer period as we were there 10 minutes before we had to wait an additional 30 minutes.

This restaurant has such a lovely outside area and we all felt safe and comfortable. The food was excellent, as usual. We’ve been here 5 or 6 times before and it is always good. Anya, our server was just great. Friendly, informative and professional. We’ll be back.

The hostess acted extremely put out when I asked to be sat at a table with chairs that had backs (she offered picnic table or high top with stools). I asked if we could sit on the other side of the patio and she said “you can’t get happy hour if you sit there” I said that was totally fine (couldn’t help but to feel judged by her comment). She acted very put out and asked another hostess to seat us in the back, then loudly asked her to also disinfect the original table we were sat at (she made sure we could hear her, which we all did). Not sure why she felt the need to make me feel bad for requesting comfortable seating.
We support this restaurant several times a month, we really enjoy coming here however the hostess’ attitude and remarks the other night put a damper on the evening.

They have a wide variety of dishes to choose from. We started with the featured wine and an appetizer of carnalized brussel sprouts with polenta which were quite yummy. Our table all enjoyed our meals of lobster ravioli, fish and chips, and roasted chicken. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. I highly recommend!

The outdoor patio was really nice considering we have to sit outside and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The music at first was a bit loud but we asked to turn it down a little and they did. The Cobb salad was delicious and our overall experience was great. Thanks!

I was having some confusion making reservations open table,I called after 4 spoke to some one and said then can probably get me in at 730 reservation the latest would 8:15,we arrived early coming from Huntington Beach the Hostess was not very nice, your table won’t be ready it’s just back in forth talking 😡We asked for a Caesar salad and asked for it to be split the waiter brought the salad on one plate and Hot salad plates. Really🤔The first time coming a couple of weeks ago the waiter was amazing he split the salad and mother in law asked for a glass a wine $15.50 really for a glass the waiter should have suggested buying a bottle of wine.The whole experience was not good for 89.00 was not worth the time very rude people hostess

Tin Roof has done a great job making you feel right at home with their expanded patio set up. These aren’t easy time for restaurants, but Tin Roof makes dinning out feel very normal still. Thanks for a great experience and night out!

Tin Roof is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. This time our reservations seated us in the middle courtyard. The ambiance was excellent and quiet enough while outside to enjoy a delicious dinner and conversation.

I was really disappointed after our anniversary dinner at Tin Roof. Nobody on the service staff ever mentioned it (even though I made a note of it on the reservation). And they gave us one of the "high" tables with barstools as chairs (no backs). Not the most comfortable way to celebrate an anniversary dinner with the one you love.

Disappointed.......

We’ve dined here many times pre-COVID and currently, the one thing I cannot stand about this place is that they always make guests with reservations wait! What is the point of making a 7:45pm reservation but you’re not seated within 5-10 minutes of that. Instead I’ve waited anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes from my reservation time! That is unacceptable. I understand things are different now, and new policies get implemented, therefore when you have a 90 minute dining limit, it should be followed stringently. Otherwise do not make reservation times so close together where longer wait times are the result. Food is great, wait staff is friendly and helpful, the ambiance is like no other restaurant in Manhattan Beach I’ll attest to that. I just wish there was a better system in place so we can enjoy it all.
