Toma is Definitely one of our favorites!! Every time we go to Santa Barbara we Have to go at least once!!
We come here every chance we get. Try the tuna cones as a starter, you won’t regret it. The food is superb and we think it is the best in SB.
They now have a lot of outside seating which is nice on a cool evening but I people waiting to get in can be a problem as they are within feet of you while you eat.
Outstanding dinner from the olives to dessert.
Golden gate cocktail and the tuna cones were fantastic
Can’t wait to return.
Excellent food, amicable service, good location - surely one of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara
Food was very tasty. The lasagne was the best we have had! Melts in your mouth!
Dinner was very pleasant. Food was exceptional and service was attentive. Loved the scallops with risotto, the ravioli and gnocchi.
Service was great and ambiance was lovely. Food was a bit overpriced for what we got. There also was a lack of flavor in the items we ordered(rigatoni, gnocchi). Specialty cocktails were hit and miss - enjoyed 2/5 we ordered. Again, service was great, though.
Had a wonderful dinner- we ordered the ahi tuna cones (a MUST), as well as the lasagna and the scallops. Everything was delicious and our server was wonderful. Definitely should make a reservation!
Fabulous service and food. Even gave us a special dessert as we were there celebrating.
Really enjoyed the food and good desserts. Not a huge menu but all good so good choices. Sat outside on sidewalk but not noisy and nice fresh air so ambiance not high but enjoyable.
Service was great, however food was mediocre. The atmosphere is enjoyable. I only thing I enjoyed was the dessert. I would not eat here again.
Wonderful food, attentive service, beautiful evening under the sky. Kitchen was slammed -- graduation weekend -- team made us feel welcome and special.
The food was amazing! Wonderful friendly service and beautiful romantic ambiance. My favorite place in Santa Barbara! 10/10
30th wedding Anniversary
Great food - loved the swordfish snd sashimi tower encrusted in sesame seeds. Nice waiter. And they honor reservatons
Great food! Great service!
My pan seared salmon puttanesca was excellent and my wife’s swordfish over pea risotto was well prepared & delicious. The Talley Chardonnay was paired perfectly with our entrees.
Attentive service by Jay.
Excellent restaurant. We ate outside on a beautiful June evening. Everything about our experience was beyond our expectations.
The food was great! I got the black spaghetti with clams! The Strawberry dessert was perfect!
Food was outstanding fresh and so flavorful. Great ambiance really felt like we were on vacation . Worth the price!
It was my daughter’s grad walk at UCSB and our whole family celebrated at Toma. We had a blast at this restaurant!! Everything we ordered was done to perfection. Service was impeccable! We will definitely go back in a heartbeat!
Celebrated UCSB graduate. Service was great, everyone was very attentive to our needs!
Delicious food and lovely experience. The rock shrimp black truffle butter gnocchi was out of this world!
Service was excellent and the food was exceptional. We are an Italian family with a high bar and they exceeded it.
Outdoor dining was set up nicely as long as you were not on the extended sidewalk.
Very nice and friendly waiter but he was stretched too thin. The Lasagne was fabulous and complex. The rack of lamb was very tasty but a bit on the sweet side. The tuna cones were much too sugary so the actual tuna could not be tasted. Fried Calamari was good but the squash blossoms were tiny and the squash was barely recognizable.
The food was fantastic. And our waiter made the evening perfect. He was attentive, helpful and very friendly.
Delicious food which was beautifully plated and served. Outdoor dining and dog friendly- perfect destination
The food was excellent. I would highly recommend the Ahi tune cone for the app and then the gnocchi for the main. Also love those deep fried olives!!!
Out of all the delicious food we had in Santa Barbara, our favorite was the squash blossom appetizer at Toma!
Excellent food and very attentive staff. The squash flower with goat cheese and pine nut appetizer was amazing.
Toma was a wonderful choice for our daughter's high school graduation family dinner. The food was amazing, the owner was helpful and gracious, and the staff were busy, but attentive. We ate inside and there was enough space around us to make us feel comfortable. We had the lasagna, ravioli, short ribs and gnocci and they were all delicious! And, we have some wonderful wine as well as all of the desserts - we really recommend the chocolate tarte, olive oil cake, and raspberry phyllo dessert.
We were on vacation and decided to try it, it was fantastic our small dog loved it because they welcomed him and our food was fantastic! The Italian wine list was great and the outdoor seating was perfect, please keep it. And try the raspberry dessert best we have had in a long while. Add to this the fact they had Chopin martinis and Bookers old fashion and we had the perfect vacation dinner, we will be back!
Visited Santa Barbara for a midweek vacay and Toma was recommended by our hotel. Fantastic wine list and daily specials. Attention to detail and exceptional service. The lasagna and Arugula Salad were our choices. Can’t wait to return.
Lovely everything ♥️
It would’ve been better if they did something little, but nice for our anniversary. We were at Bouchon the dat before, they put rose petals and handwritten notes for us.
Toma has changed, and maybe not in the right direction. Food was not up to par. Service only fair. Seems the special little things the restaurant conducted prior to the lock down haven't returned. The ravioli were under cooked. The special of the day was good, but not spectacular, as Toma is/ WAS known for. Could be a challenge finding good waiters/ waitresses/ cooks. Suggest Toma management to try harder to fill these positions. ( Your quality needs improvement to be a fine restaurant again; you have some work ahead of you. Good luck.) Until then, I'll be looking for my new best restaurant.
Great food. Excellent service. Reasonable price for the quality.
We had a fabulous evening. Our good was sensational - grilled octopus and the lamb chops being the highlights. Gnocchi was great too but a tad bit heavy for us as gnocchi tends to be. The chocolate torte was a beautiful way to round off the meal. We had a strawberry flavored cocktail that was divine. Our sever was accomplished - great vibe, very good experience!
Hands down one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. Can’t think of a single thing that could’ve been even slightly better. We had the grilled octopus starter, rigatoni, rib eye and gnocchi as well as the citrus olive oil cake for dessert. 10/10.
Amazing food...they charge too much for Crown Royal. $56.00 for two doubles?!?!
