About Tin Roof Bistro

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.

Our reserved table took some time to clear. So we had to wait.
When we were seated, the general manager Aaron Garisek came to our table and offered us a free appetizer and brought out a cheese pizza on the house. He explained that Tin Roof was new to Dine LA and tables were clearing slowly. He gave me his card. All our food came out quickly and was excellent. What started off slowly ended really well and left me wanting to go back to Tin Roof. Thanks Aaron.

Always great. Food and the service! I've been out of town for six months, and two of the servers welcomed me back! Love the look of the restaurant. Congratulations to Tin Roof, and looking forward to their remodel!

Our visit to Tin Roof was wonderful. We participated in the dine LA lunch and the food was amazing. The outside court yard was beautiful even though we had some light showers. However we were there to celebrate a birthday and no one mentioned anything about it. We will be back in the future because our overall visit was just lovely.

I will admit I want to like TRB and I do. I always enjoy a good meal at a fair price. On my most recent visit we enjoyed a shrimp starter and then I had the thin noodle lasagna and my gal pal had a fish salad of sorts. We finished with the chocolate mousse. All of the dishes were enjoyed.......although the mousse was the most basic and least inspired. Downsides.....TRB is seemingly always busy so reservations are recommended. The restaurant is noisy and not particularly cozy and servers are always bustling around. I would not suggest TRB for a romantic dinner. Would I go back? Absolutely!!!

I had eaten here before and I thought it was good. So I returned with my daughter. We had the Brussel Sprouts, which I had enjoyed the first time I was here. This time, they were terrible. The only thing we could taste was lemon. I ordered the Lamb burger which was the special that night. That wasn’t good either. The taste was blah and the burger would stay together. I ate less than half. My daughter ordered the Short Ribs. She was pleased. I thought they were tasteless.

The ambiance is great. The food, not so much.

I’m not sure what happened between my first and second visit, but I won’t be back.

The food was great. Service was great. The only thing was that the occasion was for a birthday and the girl checking us in even asked which person had the birthday, but there was no special celebration. We didn't say anything because we were full and couldn't have eaten any more, but it would have been nice for my friend to be acknowledged for her birthday.

The food was great once we were seated. The wait, however, to be seated was well over 40 minutes even with a secured reservation made well ahead of time! I have never waited that long with a reservation at a reputable restaurant .

We made a 6:15 reservation since it was a special occasion. Upon arrival, shortly before 6:15, the hostess (who had zero people skills or greeting etiquette) informed us that we would have to wait. I inquired why and how long would the wait be (since we had a reservation) her response was because "a lot of people showed up" it was clear she did not know how to handle this situation, so she just ignored us...We were shuffled off to the side while she sat other people who arrived after us.
We made the effort to call ahead and arrive on time. It would have been nice if she had apologized and explained whatever the situation for delay was; or perhaps simply acknowledged us while my two daughters and I were awkwardly standing off to the side. After about 10 minutes, a table was ready and the rude hostess handed us off to someone else to show us to our seats. No apology, no interaction, nothing. She really made us feel like we were not welcome at Tin Roof. This got our dinner off to a very disappointing start. I had been looking forward to showing my daughters the design and decor of your interior and sharing your good food with them. Luckily we had a nice server who managed to turn our mood around by simply treating us like humans that were there to spend hard earned money on a special meal.

I’ve never had a bad meal at the Tin Roof. The food is consistently good. If you’re not happy with what you’ve ordered, they’ll swap it out for something else. They do aim to please. If the weather permits (although they have heaters outside), I recommend you request outside seating on the patio. The noise level inside when the restaurant is full is rather noisy - as in you can’t hear the person next to you. There’s a reason they call this restaurant “Tin Roof”. The ceiling is actually tin, which doesn’t absorb sound. In spite of the noise level, I highly recommend this restaurant. You can’t go wrong!

Food is consistently high quality. I had the Sunday special, the pork chop. Juicy. My friend had scallops-perfectly cooked. Sit on the patio if you want to be able to visit. It is peaceful and quieter than inside.

Combination of service & food quality made the dining experience superb. I was part of a group of 7, there for lunch on Sun, Jan 14, 2018, celebrating 2 birthdays. Our waiter "Sean" was excellent, beyond any I've experienced in a long time. The soup was so good that I ordered 2 pints to take home. Everything about the restaurant was really good. However, had we been sitting on the bar side of the room, the noise level would have been more annoying. Location of restaurant is easy to get to. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We typically love Tin Roof, and Simzys, goin a couple times a month, but they were a little off in regards to the menu and the service this day. A waitress, not ours, brought our wine and hastily poured it without a word to us..and gave us the wrong wine. As well. Service was slow. It was packed but it was annoying

We had made plans for an early New Years Day dinner and had reservations for 5:30. When we arrived the restaurant wasn’t crowded but that changed very quickly. It’s evidently a very popular neighborhood restaurant. Food was good. Service was somewhat spotty. I think they may have been short staffed that evening. Lots of families and diners lingering over their meals. Looks to have a nice bar crowd. Parking was a breeze. We’ll be back.

Tin Roof has been in my favorite place to go whenever I am in the areas. Also, one of selected restaurants to give as gift cards. I enjoy always enjoy the meals...few of favorites are brussel sprouts, lamb bolognese, fig and pig pizza and cobb salad.

High recommended, however, if you want a quiet place this is not the place for meetings.

We went for dinner post show at Redondo Beach PAC and luckily had made reservations, otherwise it would have been a long wait. This place always seems crowded. We sat in the outdoor patio which was chilly but not too bad since we were beneath a heat lamp. The twinkling lights were pretty and festive. The food was delicious, especially the creative eggplant lasagna. Good beer and wine list with lots of options. Our server was very nice. The inside was very loud since it was full so I preferred sitting outside for a quieter atmosphere.

Attentive staff and food good as always. Our $30.00 Halibut was dirt dry and tasteless. The waiter should have comped it instead of just offering something else as by that time it had been a long dinner. Other than that this is one of the more consistent bistros in the South Bay.

This was our 2nd X-Mas at this restaurant.
We made a reservation thru. Open Table.
Both times the restaurant was very busy,
the hostess did not have a table available.
last year we waited for 1 hour until we had
a table. this year we waited 40 minutes.
I don't think we will go back.

Sadly two of our meals were terrible. It actually bothered us so much after we left that I decided to write a letter to the owner/manager explaining what had happened and requesting that out of the four meal/drinks, we credit just for 2 meals.

Never heard back from them... no call, no email, no letter, no credit. We've customers of Tin Roof for years. They do have a fantastic menu and the service is always good. Have spent thousand of dollars there --- private events in wine room, etc. This was a real surprise. Bummed, to say the least.
