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.

Good food, all three different meals. Attentive service. Sound was loud. The interior tin roof is anything but sound absorbing. The restaurant is decorated nicely.

This is usually one of our favorite places with reliable delicious food and service. However on valentines night, service was slow and our male waiter was distracted and inattentive. Our entrees came out almost 40 min after the salad & appetizer. my bouillabaisse was cold with the broth semi coagulated.

We came in for Valentines Day after having our rehearsal dinner here last year. We decided to do the price fixe Valentines Day Dinner with the 32oz Porterhouse. It was absolutely delicious! By far one of the best meals I’ve ever rated here!

I and 10 other people came here to celebrate a coworker’s birthday. Tin Toof had plenty of options for all the different tastes amongst my group (vegetarian, picky etc). The braised beef sandwich was absolutely amazing and service was very efficient. We all would love to go back again.

I was a big fan of Tin Roof until few month ago. I don't know what they did to their chef and staff, but it is not working anymore!!! Eventhough some of the menu items are the same, the flavors have changed. Big time. Even the desserts, (now bigger servings) are missing the mark. I tried (really) to get into the 'new' standards but it's not going to happen. Sad to loose what was one time, a great local restaurant!! I hope they do something about it....

Would go back for the lemony/roasted Brussel Sprouts on charred bread alone! They also make a mean vodka martini! We will be back!

We ate lunch on the patio which was really nice. I got the lunch special, and the turkey sandwich had dry turkey breast, hard bread, and no dressing. The Caesar salad had old lettuce with one crouton and little dressing. Too bad the food did not match the nice ambience.

Food was good overall, some things excellent, some things okay. Beautiful place but be aware that a reservation does not specify inside or out, and you really want to be out, the courtyard is the reason to go.

Everything was great except at the end of our meal, we stayed to chat a bit while still finishing drinks. It was uncomfortable having the wait staff and the manager keep eyeing our table and the manager walking by and saying 'thank you for coming', which we caught onto. We shouldn't have to feel like we were being rushed out of there.

The mushroom and tomato bisque soups came out cold. The food took too long to serve. The bread on the fried chicken sandwich was gross and dry. I loved the Caesar salad. The waiter was sweet and I can tell he was trying.

We made our reservation through open table, but had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. We were not happy ... but management was very generous in compensating for the inconvenience... they comped us several appetizers . Food was creative and excellent, as always .... table service was also excellent ... overall, management ‘s response elevated the mood of our table as we enjoyed the wonderful appetizers and really saved the evening. I can still heartily recommend Tin Roof ...which has been one of our favorites for a long time.

I was here two weeks in a row and my first experience was very good, thus I booked for a second business dinner. The Monday night 7:45pm reservation made for less noice vs. my prior Friday night dinner but the food experience was much different. First visit was a pleasure. This second dinner did not meet expectations. My companion’s coffee was lukewarm flavored water and he asked them to just take away. Having just arrived from an east coast cross country flight, he didn’t get the pick-up he needed. Brussels sprouts were sad good as they were the week before but we both ordered the salmon entree and both of our plates were very salty - fish she green beans. We each took 3-4 bites and could not continue (didn’t want to wake up the next morning swollen or bloated). We ended up ordering another plate of Brussels sprouts and spring roll to share. Waiter was courteous, though I felt could have gone the extra mile to apologize or offer other suggestions.

We started the meal with a glass of house red and white - both of which should not be served at a higher end restaurant. The quality was terrible. The appetizers were tasty - the flavors of the Brussels sprouts were amazing. But, the main courses - we had the lobster ravioli and steak frites - were very average. Unfortunately, the service was slow as well.

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.
