Party of seven celebrating a birthday. Great service and superb food as usual. Toma never disappoints.
My wife and I have eaten there a few times and we love it! Great food and pleasant service. On our next visit to Santa Barbara we will most likely have dinner there again!
Gnocchi and Black Spaghetti were delicious paired with a bottle of Chianti :)
Overall great restaurant, the food was fantastic. They did forget to read their notes as this was an anniversary dinner but the service was excellent and they were able to accommodate us at the time we arrived since we were there a bit earlier. The octopus and the gnocchi were the highlights of our dinner
Brilliantly conceived menu.
Attentive, never oppressive service.
Long time customer. Local SB.
Exelent food and service.
Great place to have a date birthday celebration.
Really delicious Italian food and good drinks. The gnocchi was to die for.
The squash blossom appetizer and the pear cocktail are the two best of each category that I have ever tasted. Well done!
It’s a great experience dining there. The service level is great and foods are amazing. Will definitely recommend to whoever come to the area.
Everything was good until they served my lamb which was ordered medium rare & the lamb came out rare to raw. This is the first of anything I have sent back in years. The lamb came back well done. I mentioned this to the manager who completely ignored me. We have eaten at Toma’s about 5 times.......there will not be a 6th.
Toma never disappoints! We had another delicious meal and drinks seated outdoors on a beautiful evening. The service was excellent. Highly recommend!
It was really nice to have dinner once again at Toma. My wife had the scallops and I had the black spaghetti with clams, both of our old favorites and as good as ever.
Atmosphere was pleasant and the staff helpful and friendly. The food was outstanding! I could not have picked a better place for a nice intimate meal .
Food was soooooooo good. I love that it all comes so hot! It's not like that in LA. Creme brulee was impressive. Pear cocktail was amazing - server was kind enough to ignore that I insisted that he didn't alter the drink to my liking, and it was one of the most amazing cocktails ever. I could have had 10 more. lol. Go here. Soon.
Really enjoyed the food and service as well as nicely paced delivery of courses.
Ambiance Meh. Eating on a sidewalk with pedestrians badgering you as they walk by isn’t my idea of a great meal. Food was fantastic although we did request indoor dinning on our reservation.
Outstanding Easter Sunday dinner. Worth the drive from San Jose. Best Italian restaurant in California.
Short rib and scallops were delicious, they have a giant outdoor area and the wait staff was awesome! Visiting but would definitely go back next time!
Toma is the best restaurant in Santa Barbara. The service, the setting, the menu selection and the food preparation were top notch. It was so good that we had to return before we left. Reservations are definitely needed but know you will enjoy the evening.
First time back to Toma since Covid. It was as excellent as before. If you go you have to order the chocolate torte. The best dessert in Santa Barbara.
Our evening at this darling place couldn't have been better. We enjoyed our dinner and our server and the staff were delightful. Even my 3 teenage grandchildren raved about it later. It's a must when you're in Santa Barbara.
Always good. You can't make a bad choice on what to eat.
The food, service and ambiance here is always outstanding.
Squash blossoms, ravioli, and swordfish. Delightful food and great service!
Food and service was awesome. Outside seating was along a busy street, so a little noisy, but nice view of beach. Would definitely go again.
Celebrated my birthday with a few girlfriends. Beautiful ambiance, great service and excellent food
Great food and knowledgeable
Great food, excellent pasta, delicious deserts and great wine
Food was amazing. It was busy night so service was a little slow, but everyone was nice and the ambiance was great
I had the best time there and it was a highlight of my Santa Barbara trip. Excellent service, our waiter was so attentive and welcoming.
Outstanding each and every time we go!
The food and service was excellent as always.
Outstanding!! The food, the service, the wine and the atmosphere. We loved it all!! Definitely our favorite restaurant that we dined at during our visit to Santa Barbara! Thank you for a great evening!
The waiter was less than involved in the service. We felt like we semi-disppeared.
Great meal, great service! We sat outside so the street noise was a bit loud but small price to pay for a wonderful evening out. They had plenty of heaters to keep everyone comfortable. The lamb was excellent. Squash blossoms always a treat. We try to come every time we visit Santa Barbara. Thanks Toma for another terrific meal.
Drinks, appetizer and main course were each below average, despite good reviews. Then when we tried to use a standard $25 points redemption coupon for opentable the owner first said “No, we don’t take those.” Uh, you’re on opentable and we made that reservation through opentable but you don’t accept the opentable coupon? After some convincing, they tried entering the opentable code and it worked. Overall, this experience was a big let down, especially for the prices.
Outstanding food and service
Loved this place! Service was amazing! Food was extraordinary!
Great experience with lovely outside table. Food was excellent as was the service.
When I made our reservations, I requested a nice indoor table for our anniversary dinner. We were promptly seated at a lovely and roomy window table. The cocktail, salad, entree, wine and dessert were all just delicious. The waiter suggested a bottle of wine that went with both of our selections - and it was very good and we thought moderately priced. I also asked for help selecting between two items - he was right again - the gnocchi suggestion was terrific. It may have been the best I've ever had. And the very nice part of the ambience was that even though the restaurant was full with people standing outside in line - we had a lovely lingering dinner. Our courses were served at comfortable intervals and we never felt rushed. I can't wait to go back.
