Delicious Italian, very nice CA and Italian wine list, very cozy setting. Nothing not to like - will be back again!
Beautiful evening for outdoor dining. Very attractive interior. Excellent calamari large enough to share and creative, delicious preparation of rack of lamb. Very good service generally; as visitors to Santa Barbara especially appreciated Juan, who was not only very professional but also very helpful.
Birthday. Gabriel is a great server. Food outstanding as usual. Recommend the squash blossom appetizer.
The food was fabulous. The tuna cones are a must!!
Lovely evening on the patio with wonderful food!
Everything about the evening was great…service, ambiance and amazing food!
Each of us ordered different entrees and were very pleased with our choices. Excellent food, service, and ambiance. Toma is one of the best restaurant in Santa Barbara.
Amazing food and service!
Toma is our go-to for fine dining in Santa Barbara! The setting wonderful - across the street from the ocean! Attention from Every Staff Member is excellent - not invasive but attentive to your needs, friendly, and a willingness to impart recommendations and to provide outstanding service. The menu selection provides ample range for different tastes (my wife is Vegetarian), and the preparation and presentation of all dining options are exceptional. Bon Appetit!
Absolutely terrific! Service, staff, food— all excellent. Loved the ahi tuna cones!!! Sword fish special was sensational and flat bread sausage pizza was delicious. Owner is very attentive and on top of everything. It lives up to all of the great reviews already submitted. A must go to in SB.
My husband and I eat at Toma every time we are in Santa Barbara. In fact, it is the major reason we visit Santa Barbara! The food is beyond exceptional, delicious and beautifully presented. Be sure to leave room for one of their wonderful desserts. Service is top notch and very friendly.
Must try the tuna cones! Everything was impeccable!
My husband and I ate dinner there last night and had a wonderful time. We had 2 apps and split 1 pasta dish - perfect amount of food and no grief given from the waiter. Speaking of the waiter ours was charming, attentive and knowledgeable. Great wine and beer list. 140 for the food and 5 drinks which we thought was super fair. Great location right on the water. And there was a steady stream of guests all night so others love it as much! Thanks again for a great meal.
Holy moly it’s amazing!!! The gnocchi and the ravioli were both fantastic!! Our waiter was SO kind and the staff overall were friendly!!
The flavors were bland, many dishes needed salt. It feels like this restaurant is serving the same food to the same clientele for years. Boring overall. The octopus was the best part of the meal.
Everything was excellent
Outstanding food and service!
Great place and service, really good food!
We sat outside, although on the street and during a thunder rain it was lovely. The manager and server were very attentive the food was so delicious.
Amazing restaurant...food was so delicious. The service was outstanding. The location was perfect... walking distance from our hotel. I would definitely go back and have dinner here again.
Delicious - the ravioli are so good! And be sure to start with an order of the calamari-served hot and crispy-perfect! Make reservations - it gets very busy because Toma is great!
Great food and service
The lasagna was very good indeed and the ahi tuna cones are always amazing.
Always a great experience. We have dined at Toma several times over the past six years. The food has remained consistently good. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
Toma is a favorite of ours! Food is always amazing (braized short ribs & seared scallops)
You can't go wrong with this restaurant!
Calamari was amazing.. best salmon ever! Waiter was great!
What a delight. Service professional and helpful, ambience warm and welcoming, quiet enough for easy conversation with still plenty of energy in the room. Very good cocktails were accompanied with dish of tasty fried olives. Nice wines available by the glass. My lasagna had delicate sheets of pasta with layers of flavorful meat and spinach filling. others enjoyed the sea bass special. This is definitely a Santa Barbara gem.
Management and our server were very friendly, our meal was superb and our wine was luscious. All in all a fantastic evening. Would go back often if we lived there!
Great food and service. A good ambiance. It is everything I expected but not more.
Wonderful food, great service, and a bit expensive
Haven’t been back in 4 years . You are getting even better!!
Always excellent service and delicious food. The new patio was nice. We will be back again and again.
Toma is our go-to favorite restaurant every time we come to SB for medical appts at Sansum. Everything is perfect from ambiance to cuisine and service. Intimate dining right on the harbor and within walking from our favorite stay CDMI.
Our favorite restaurant in Santa Barbara! Amazing food, great service, five stars * !!!!
One of our favorites in SB. Always amazing food and really great wait staff. Never misses.
We enjoyed our dinner at Toma. The ambience was very nice, beautiful greenery and candles on the tables. We dined outdoors and it was perfect weather. The food was very good. It wasn’t the most amazing food ever, but was good. Good portions for the price and we enjoyed our cocktails.
Delicious food, great ambiance and the very best service! Our waiter, David was absolutely amazing making my nieces birthday one we will never forget! Thank you
Beautiful restaurant, our food was delicious! The scallops were amazing as well as the rigatoni. They had an excellent selection of wines and cocktails available. Our server I believe his name was Pierro, was very attentive and made excellent recommendations. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back my next trip to Santa Barbara.
Everything was excellent! Portion sizes were just right, the food tasted delicious, the service was stellar, and the lightning, ambience, and noise level was just right giving the feeling of an upscale but still quaint homely Italian restaurant.
Excellent food and service. Highly recommended for a special occasion or upscale meal.
