The escargo lacked strength,suggest more garlic,and salt.
Croques Monsieur better than Paris? Oui! Highly recommend! Wonderful service from Marisa! Au revoir!
Sat outside and had a wonderful lunch. Great salads and service. I felt like I was in Paris if only for lunch.
Exceptional French Bistro on STATE STREET with a PATIO. Delicious food prepared with care, and skill. Superb fresh ingredients, and combinations. Beautiful French decor with bistro chairs and tables. I cannot say enough about this place. I am in sales, eating out is part of my lifestyle, this place sizzles! Every part of the meal is carefully executed, well presented, and service is ON POINT. I am happy to spend my money in this place and give such a glowing recommendation, they deserve it. Unfortunately, I have had many disappointments in Santa Barbara in the last decade. Too many restaurants with absent owners, weak managers, poor service, and irrelevant food. This place re-ignited my passion to dine in downtown SB. I tried no less than 7 dishes when I hosted this dinner. Everyone left satisfied, happy and excited to return. Well done...Well done! Viva La France.
The mussel entrée, with scores and scores of mussels in a really great, creamy sauce, were absolutely delicious. We took home the leftovers and they made two meals.
grilled asparagus, escargot were great appetizers.
entrecote beef entrée was wonderful.
service was delightful, attentive and informative.
We enjoyed a very nice lunch at Relais. My husband loved his Croque Monsieur, our friend thought the burger was excellent. My salad was good but not remarkable.
Service was very slow.
Enjoyed the Executive Lunch outside
We really enjoyed our meal and the very friendly service. The moules frites and steak frites were both delicious. Loved the chocolate desert.
My wife loves French bistros and we have been wanting to try this charming restaurant on State Street for some time. We finally went on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the dining experience. The menu is limited to staple bistro fare -- so there were no surprises -- but everything was prepared to utter perfection. My wife had Moule Frite (Mussels and Fries) which she loved. The mussels were the largest, plumpest and tastiest we've had. They had that subtle briny taste -- fresh from the sea. I had their specialty: Entrecote Steak, medium rare, and it too was close to perfection. Love their Sauce Originale. We have a new favorite restaurant in Santa Barbara and will be back!
