Mom was visiting from New York. We had the squash blossoms, tuna cones, and the gnocchi. HIGHLY recommend the gnocchi! Amazing!
Excellent food and ambiance- great date night spot!
Amazing food and spectacular service for our party of 7. Loved the scallops The owner was so congenial on the phone when I called and had to alter reservations. The hostesses and staff were professional and top notch. We loved the entire experience and it made the start of our girls trip weekend for the Santa Barbara Ride 100 perfect. THANK YOU!!!
The food was outstanding. The Squash Blossoms and Flatbread were delectable as were the Citrus Olive Oil Dessert Cake and Warm Chocolate Torte. The service was also first class.
Toma is our go to place for special! Owner was very accommodating, even though we had requested outdoor seating, found a lovely table inside since outside was a bit chilly. Staff didn’t miss a beat and our waiter, Juan, was very welcoming, patient, and extremely attentive to our needs. He also had a great sense of humor, which further enhanced our experience! Drinks and food came quickly and were delicious! We usually reserve remarkable restaurants such as Toma for our last day at our destination, so that we can depart on a high note, looking forward to our next visit!
Had friends visiting from out of town. We new that taking them to Tomas would be a great experience for them. Food, service and ambiance was fantastic!! Looking forward to out next visit there.
Anniversary! Service seriously outstanding! Super friendly. Very cozy. Loved it! Thank you!
My husband and I spent our twenty year anniversary here…we had a few drinks and some appetizers here…which were all fabulous as well as the service was outstanding! The sesame tuna rolls are delicious you do not want to pass them up! The butternut squash raviolis were very tasteful and filled with flavor. The ambiance was peaceful and romantic even though they were busy. We will definitely be coming back to Toma!
Good food. Professional service. Friendly staff. Welcoming atmosphere.
We loved our meals. Butternut squash ravioli and rigatoni were excellent. We finished with creme brûlée.
The service was excellent. Friendly staff. The food was extraordinarily delicious. We were visiting from NJ and this was the best restaurant we ate at.
Really good food, good menu selection and excellent service! Our favorite in Santa Barbara so far!!
The meal was very nice, but service was spotty. They made a number of service mistakes that were not really acceptable at this price point. The meal itself was completely on point.
Fantastic! Will be first on my list next trip. Appetizer of Squash blossoms was really good, not overdone. Burratta salad was as fresh as it gets. Lasagna and black spaghetti!
Don’t miss it
Overpriced. Food is good not great. Service was okay. Waiter didnt spend any time describing specials or really taking time to explain anything on the menu. Definitely didn’t make us feel special even though he knew it was our anniversary. Mediocre for the $$ we shelled out. Probably won’t be going back.
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!
We heard this was a must visit restaurant. You definitely want to get your reservations in early because it is worth it. We had amazing service, incredible food and an amazing wine list.
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.
