Great service and food. My husband enjoyed the food and Waiter, I am sure which one he enjoyed the most. Thanks for making 2021 Father's Day one to remember.
Excellent food! Quality ingredients, simply prepared to bring out the best in them with wonderful little touches to enhance them. Between us we had the bread, roasted cauliflower, roasted asparagus, yellow beet salad, Caesar salad, salmon, wild mushroom pappardelle, maccheroncini al brasato, the T-bone steak special and the panna cota. All were absolutely delicious. The service was fabulous and everyone was so friendly. It is on the pricier side, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for.
We have returned to SY Kitchen time and again. We are guaranteed wonderful food and drinks served by a great staff. Celebrated Father’s Day 2021 with our family. We are locals and will be there again soon!
Another fabulous dinner at SY Kitchen. This is our 3rd visit. The special nectarine salad was the meal highlight…but our steak and artichoke appetizer were very scrumptious as well. Dinner was topped with panna cotta and fresh berries. Just phenomenal…
Best meal on our trip throughout Southern California. The artichoke is a must!
Amazing food and cocktails. Cannot wait to return!
The food was delicious as always! I’ve never had a bad meal at SY Kitchen!
Awesome food, great service!
Excellent food. Very nice setting. Ice cream to rave about.
Amazing grilled octopus salad!
This was a birthday lunch and it was delightful, thanks
Excellent service, delicious food and cocktails! Great patio area, comfortable seating, pet friendly 😊
Absolutely delicious. Really fresh appetizers and delicious pastas. Service was fantastic as well- helpful and attentive. We’ll definitely be back!
Perfect! I will be happy to return!👍
The octopus salad and the wild mushroom pappardelle are delicious!
Ridiculous great food. Had the zucchini soup special. Awesome. Waygu meatball appetizers flavor was great. Halibut special and pasta sausage dinner had amazing flavor. Great attentive service in casual atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Seated promptly, very friendly writer greeted us right away. Gave us water, took our drink order, decanted our wine Knew the dinner menu very well. Food was amazing. Lamb shank and Delmonico Steak. Plus a salad of apricots, cucumber and goat cheese. Yum.
Consistent and outstanding. Grilled artichoke, chicken, all perfect and a very good eclectic wine selection.
Our favorite Santa ynez area restaurant- great food, ambiance, and service
Food and drinks were amazing. Waiter and all the staff were very nice and attentive, making great recommendations. All of our food was delicious and the truffle pizza and pasta was worth it. I highly recommend coming and if I’m ever in the area I’ll be back.
We were in Los Olivos the previous weekend and a local told us we needed to eat at SY Kitchen next time we came up. So, we came the very next weekend with friends. The restaurant is super cute and the food is beyond delicious. We had the bread, octopus, T-bone sliders and mushroom pasta and all were AMAZING. This place is Not to be missed.
The lamb shank was phenomenal and the pizza was thin, crispy delish!
My favorite restaurant
Party of 5 seated without delay (had a reservations.) We each had a different cocktail and all were excellent. Two of the five had the lamb special. Two of the five had the halibut special. 1 had the mushroom pappardelle with truffles. All entrees were superb. Our favorite dish, however, was the beet salad, which we shared. Do not miss out on the beet salad, even if you think you do not like beets. We also shared the pea salad, which was very nice. Service was excellent. Wine list represents the region very well.
Lovely dinner - will be back
From the moment we walked through the door, we knew it was going to be a great experience.
Menu is wonderful……service incredible…….food was sumptuous.
Will definitely be back and recommend it to all.
Great staff! Thank You!
This is such a lovely spot. The food is healthy and delicious. We love taking our visitors here.
Our server Matt was awesome!
Everything was perfect. Attentive service. Enticing cocktails. Fresh salads. Delectable main dishes. Spot on wine recommendations. We only passed on dessert because we were so full. Will definitely make it a destination on our next trip from Palm Springs.
The food was outstanding!!!!
Our service was even better!!!
Amazing as always
We come to SY almost every time we visit the Santa Ynez valley. Great food and mixed drinks and, if you want even more wine, the wine list is great as well.
Well worth the cost
Food was expensive for what was served. Secondary server was rude and very abrupt. Main waiter was nice but we hardly saw him. Overall, would not go back. Too bad my wife’s birthday dinner was ruined.
Love taking a lazy afternoon getaway for great food & ambiance. Only glitch, I had mentioned a birthday request in my reservation which did not arrive. I handled it on my own but I would double check to make sure your request is taken into consideration.
Lunch with friends! Service very good, entrees very good!
I’ve dined here more than a dozen times and the food is consistently excellent.
Fantastic restaurant! Everything was amazing - the service, the food, the ambience!
