Delicious food, wonderful service
One of my favorites. Something for everyone. Great cocktails too!
Loved the Race Car Theme....Big Fan
Waitress Angela was a delight!
Great! We love sitting at the bar
The restaurant has a good vibe, is unpretentious, and the service is great. However, the food was fairly average, particularly because the prices are on the high end. Also, the noise level in the back part of the restaurant makes it hard to enjoy a good conversation.
Sly’s never disappoints. The menu is old school, but in the best possible way. Seafood - check. Steaks - check. Pasta dishes - check. Hamburgers - check. A bar that knocks it out of the park - check. And don’t get me started on the onion rings!
Sly's is dependable for good service - you can dine in the bar (which is fun - and there's a great happy hour 4- 6 weeknights) or dine on white table clothes in the back rooms where you can actually hear your dining companions and great black and white photos by Jesse Alexander line the brick walls. Sly's can be pricey (sides are separate) so bring you gold AMEX card. Hoping they start serving lunch again - brunch on the weekends is great. Love their onion rings, potato skins with side of sour cream and the carbonara is to die for - heavy on steaks - some seafood - sand dabs are lovely Sly can go heavy on the butter, but you can request "light on the butter"... Save room for desserts!
Sly's is delicious! Great steakhouse with tons of options. The service is outstanding! 5 star restaurant without the stuffy atmosphere!
Always great steaks. Service usually good and ambiance just OK.
The entire meal was amazing. I can’t wait to go back for more.
Luncheon was delicious, and it arrived nicely . The wait staff were extremely pleasant and did their job well and unobtrusively.
My luncheon plate looked very attractive.
Awesome as always. Loved my GREEK salad with warm feta.
The high-priced steaks were not very flavorful and were not cooked to my wife’s and my order.
We love Sly’s
I just love this place. an amazing expansive and delicious menu. never disappointed
This has become one of our favorite restaurants in all California. Reliably extremely great food, combined with warm, friendly staff and a comfortable atmosphere. Whether just the two of us or our extended family, when we want an excellent meal, we’ll drive the 35 miles up the coast to Sly’s.
What a special meal! We felt so comfortable and the menu for the night was a special salute to Julia Childs including crepes Suzette for dessert! Wow!!! Love this place!
We love Sly’s!!! It’s always an enjoyable dining experience. The food is thoughtfully prepared, hand picked everything from cuts of meat to the veggies. A must when in the area. The owners are hands on to ensure the best possible occasion
Always a “Superb” dining experience. We have been guests at Sly’s for over 5 years. Fantastic friendly attentive service, consistently well prepared food. The only wish I have is the wine by glass be a taller pour, otherwise 5 stars all the way. Highly recommend.
Everything was awesome, especially Tony, our waiter. Thanks again!
had a very enjoyable meal........staff very friendly and helpful......nice variety of choices on the menu.....reservations suggested......food was very good.....will return when in the area
The waitstaff was very attentive especially John who made our anniversary dinner special.
Sly's is our special go to place. Great food, service and friendly atmosphere. Everytime!
As always we had a great experience. The drinks, food & service is consistent & very, very good. There is something for everyone on the menu!
Generally speaking, we like the place, and have been there a number of times. Our less than stellar experience this time was the result of choices. The chicken pot pie was underwhelming and fairly tasteless, while the Osso Buco was quite beautifully prepared, but very skimpy, at $37.
Great food and service as usual. Steaks were awesome, as was the crab Louie. Attentive service, nice wine selection too
Great place. Great meal. Good value.
By far one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time.
Always a feel good time when I'm at Sly's! Best menu in all of Santa Barbara! Carpinteria is very fortunate.The best part is I live around the corner, which is very dangerous!
Five star! Everything was perfect for our 11 year old granddaughter birthday!
Great food in local Carpinteria. Excellent quality. Impressive for our out of town guests.
An old friend was visiting from New England, and it happened to be her birthday .. we took her to Sly's to celebrate the visit, her special day, and Carpinteria. It was a perfect evening. She loved the abalone appetizers and the Sand Dabs... we thought the service was especially attentive and the food, as always, was exceptional. We love Sly's for any and all occasions .
..AND, we can walk to it!!
My date and I were on our way back to Ventura county following a weekend in Santa Barbara and stopped at Sly's for brunch. The atmosphere in the front room is great. It looks like a real diner, but with a fabulous, real bar and a roll-up door in the front to let in the ocean air.
Do you know how contemporary bars organize the bottles to be in patterns? They'll put Grey Goose on each end of the top row and work their way inward with duplicate bottles? Not so at Sly's. It looks like the bar tender actually makes drinks versus spending time decorating. This was a really refreshing detail.
The ladies serving were efficient, friendly and polite, and just the right amount of attentive.
I will definitely return.
We have been going to Sly's since the day it opened! We love having a martini and an old fashion here. Great place to linger and have a chat with my husband! Personal are wonderful. We especially like the way the staff is treated...like family!
Good food, good drinks, good people!
I have had many meals here, and maybe it was an off night, but our two dishes were almost bad enough to send back. Instead, we will vote by not returning. My date's boullabaisse was very over cooked, tough mussels, shrimp, overdone fish, all but unedible. I had Julia Child's beef bougougnon, but no pearl onions, and dried mushrooms, but still good flavor.
I've never had a bad dish at Sly's. Everything is superb -- fresh, perfectly prepared, and wonderfully presented. The biggest problem is that there are too many great-tasting things on the menu ... I can't possibly eat everything I want at any one visit (believe me, I've tried). It doesn't get any better than this.
Always excellent food with many choices. Great steaks. Very good service. Valet parking.
Good food and service. Nice atmosphere. Valet parking. Moderately expensive.
Sly's never disappoints. Their bunch is one of the best. Love coming here on a Sunny Carpinteria morning
Our entries were excellent but the bread was sub-par and my onion soup was low on flavor.
The desert menu was unappealing.
