Great dining pretty much every time!
The triple cooked potatoes are out of this world!!!
We had a fabulous time. Excellent food, excellent service!
Amazing Italian food, complete with an Italian staff! Definitely not too be missed on a trip to Santa Ynez!
Wonderful food, great atmosphere, and attentive professional waiter.
This restaurant never disappoints. It’s fantastic!
We could not have been happier based on a recommendation we visited SY kitchen for our anniversary dinner. It exceed all expectations. Best meal we have had in ages. Pasta was perfection and the asparagus and sliders were sublime. Could not recommend it more. Just wish I lived closer.
Pretty much the local go-to. Not stoked about them now charging for bread.
Nice food but portions were kind of a joke. Prices very high for what u get. Service was totally inattentive and very slow. Would not go back here there are better options nearby
Cute place The lamb was delicious, but very small portion for the price. The short rib pasta was ok, but not fabulous. Would have enjoyed the pasta a little softer. The artichoke appetizer is delicious. Will return because the overall experience is nice.
Bday Dinner with my wife and 4 close friends. Luca and his team never let us down. Dinner was absolutely delicious and the Truffle Pizza is a fan favorite. We all had a great evening and thanks to the whole team for helping make it a special evening.
Loved the food in this cozy getaway just outside of Solvang
One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. A great experience.
This restaurant was highly recommended but my experience was that the food is alright, service is great, but overall was not worthy of the hype or the price.
A very nice place for dinner in the Santa Ynez Valley. Excellent service. We were greeted and seated quickly. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. Cute home turned into a restaurant. Very casual atmosphere. Pretty crowded even mid-week. A little noisy, but not excessive. Good choice of wines by the glass as well as local beer. Nightly specials sounded wonderful, but we both choice to order from the standard menu. We both had caesar salads, pasta dishes, and shared their Tiramisu. Everything was very good, nothing stellar. Pasta was cooked just right, nice flavors, and portions were generous but not huge. Tiramisu was very creamy. Pizzas looked great. Overall, the quality and the prices were typical of the other high-end restaurants in the area. Would recommend and would return if given the opportunity.
You guys rock as always. Great service, wonderful presentation, high quality experience. Always out last stop.
Consistently great food. Best restaurant in the SY Valley.
Consistently great food. Great staff.
I have eaten here on several occasions and always have had a great experience. The octopus was exceptional.
A fantastic place, the food is amazing, the service is spot on, and a hip but comfortable decor. The really noteworthy aspect of SY Kitchen, however, is that everyone there really cares about what they do.
Great ambiance, great service, fresh “farm to table” vegetables and preparation, soups were excellent , but unfortunately our chicken dishes were really dry, and at high prices, that’s a shame. We would however try again if in the area.
By far the best restaurant in town! I always do a 3 course meal and I always want to start all over cuz it’s so good
No one mentioned our anniversary. Had to wait 10 minutes for water. Did not read us the specials. Had to ask for bread which we were charged for. Food was underwhelming to say the least. Doesn’t taste like they make their pasta in house. Order was bland. Will not come back. Sad that this place gets such rave reviews. Brothers is right across the way and was superior in every dept.
Great food, even better service, ambiance is unbeatable. If you're in the area you can't go wrong, one of the best.
Great dinner, wonderful service. Waiter was attentive and our water glasses never went empty!
The food was excellent and the staff both friendly and attentive. I really loved it and would come back often if I lived close.
We stopped here for dinner after a wine pick up party. The food was good, not great for the price. Waiter was nice but tried to get us to purchase a bottle of wine rather than just a glass.
My favorite restaurant in the SY Valley!
St Kitchen is phenomenal! The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The service was fantastic. We had a great wines and overall a wonderful time! We’ll definitely be back!
Amazing food and cocktails are inventive, delicious and beautiful!! Their mixologist is a master of culinary skill!!
Perfectly prepared meal. Tables are a little tightly packed so not intimate but still a cozy setup for group meals.
Great food. lively atmosphere, did not disappoint.
Very busy but service was prompt and courteous
Well had an amazing meal, from the cocktails and wine to the octopus salad and rack of lamb. The tiramisu was out of this world.
Chef Luca is amazingly creative. The regular menu is a solid generally Northern Italian selection interpreted in very fresh ways. Daily specials are, well, special. The selections for the recent restaurant weeks were unique and unusual. Great wine list including the house wine made with grapes from the owner’s vineyard is excellent. Service is also first rate.
My wife and I were overwhelmed with rude and very loud people who could care less about who was there around them. I think they should relocate the bar area to help eliminate some of the noise levels
SY Kitchen is a hot spot in the Santa Ynez area. My wife and I went to dinner on a Monday night and it was packed. This is a loud restaurant. Not bad if you are OK with load restaurants, NOT GOOD if you are looking for a quaint and cozy restuarant. There are tables in the bar, its loud. There are tables in the indoor dining room, very LOUD. One big table in the middle and 5 tables for two surrounding the big table. Every sit next to a big loud table? You know what to expect. So, if you are sitting indoors, you have no escape to the LOUD noise. The outdoor seating may be your best bet, but it is crowded so, if you don't mind listening to everyone around you while attempting to have a nice dinner with your date, everything will be OK. SY Kitchen is a pretty good VERY NOISY restaurant
Upscale food in a casual atmosphere. Good selection — something for everyone. vegetarian friendly. Really enjoyed our evening!
Day at bar for dinner twice over a weekend we were visiting from MN - great experience which is why we came back 2 days later!
I appreciated the corner table and friendly service, however only one tiny lamb chop for the main dish for restaurant week was delicious but the quantity was quite disappointing. We both left hungry
