    Brussels sprouts are insanely tasty. The hanger steak is phenomenal but could have had more steak and less broccoli. The beef cheeks with bone marrow is rich and decadent. The ice cream sandwich OMG

    Great outdoor seating or indoor bar scene. Food is phenomenal. Get the Brussels sprouts and hazelnut praline ice cream sandwich for dessert. Can't go wrong with everything in between. And make a res!

    Great outdoor seating. Arugula Salad, Cauliflower au Gratin, &Pork Shank were phenomenal. Thoughtful menu. The platters are easily enough for two. Great cocktails. Take your time and savor everything!

    We popped in for lunch with a friend and loved this small friendly restaurant. The mouthwatering selection of cakes was beyond our capacity after such lunch, but will give us another reason to return!

    Great for cocktails, a nice dinner, or just dessert. Pisco cocktail is excellent, and don't miss the chocolate tres leches cake.

    Yes, everyone orders the Brussels Sprouts, but we tried four of the other small plates and they were all very good!

    Tasty sharing plates – try the steak and the buttered carrots! If there's a long wait for a table you can jump onto the family table when a seat opens up

    Great wine selection and plates to share. Anything with pork is a solid choice. The ice cream sandwich is awesome.

    The place is super enjoyable but the food is plain nonsense and better avoided, except for those who still get excited to find fruits and acidic juices spread all over your plate.

    This might be the best restaurant in Santa Barbara. Make a reservation or you'll go home hungry

    Food is stellar - Brussels Spouts are worth committing murder for. Unfortunately the service is abhorrent, slow and you always wait no matter if you have a reservation. But the food....!!!!

    No one here knows how to do math. 2nd time they fucked up my bill. I'll definitely come back- it's just a bit annoying.
