We found the restaurant during a one-night stopover in Santa Barbara, thinking it was a bistro that would provide a light dinner and some wine. It is much much more, with great ambiance, food and wine. Even better, the service is excellent.
For a restaurant that is all about wine the staff and sommelier couldn’t take less interest. They have a new chef who used to be sous who is not on an A game. It seems like a restaurant resting on its laurels and history. Flavor precision was lacking. Over brined chicken. Starchy crab cakes and mushy risotto to name a few.
Excellent vegetarian dinner. Friendly, knowledgeable service.
We loved our intimate corner near the bubbly fountain. Very memorable food we both enjoyed from first to last bite.
Five Stars (six for ambiance)...friendly service, fireplace. Very classy.
Formal elegance suitable for a business dinner or special occasion. Quiet. Service cordial and attentive except waiter forgot to check in with us until we were essentially done our entrees. Extensive wine list with some gems. Steaks were cooked properly but not very flavorful. Desserts top notch.
Classy , always great quality and service excellent for impressing business people or high end out of town visitors.
While everything was very good, I would prefer that birthdays be totally ignored rather than acknowledged with a "cute" little note on a generic birthday card. I think ignoring it is less tacky than the card in an upscale expensive restaurant. A cupcake from the local market would have been better.
From our arrival and greeting to the finish, completely memorable for the very best of reasons,
Excellent food and impeccable service.
As always, a pleasure to spend a few hours with friends in a relaxing atmosphere with good food and service.
Wonderful menu and great atmosphere, highly recommended.
This is a quiet restaurant which is increasingly difficult to find. You can actually carry on a comversation. Excellent food with very nice presentation. Put it on your list!
Excellent food and ambiance. A great dining experience.
Food excellent except lamb was too rare. Love the new interior design and orientation.
Had lunch in the courtyard. Very pleasant, service was attentive but not too pushy. Nice selection for lunch. Great wine list. Very enjoyable and will return on our next visit to SB.
