The atmosphere and service is great. The meat and cheese plate was so much fun and so filling and delicious. The second night, I had the shrimp pasta and it was also great. Highly recommend this place!

Since I was in town for business and traveling alone, I sat at the bar. The service was very friendly and the food was excellent. For the tapas, I tried some sausage wrapped in bacon (how can you go wrong?) and had to force myself to act civil and not shovel it down my face. Awesome. For dinner, I had... More

I ate here with my 12 year old son after a day at the beach. Good, menu with nice entrees for adults but also a lot of stuff the kids will eat as well. Friendly staff, decent wine list, good ambience, good value for money.

A great place for a glass of wine and a light meal. Don't go if you are starving and want giant portions, but if you want to relax, drink a nice glass of wine and enjoy a tasty meal this is the place. Not a giant menu, but more than adequate, good pastas and a really good burger. Lots of... More

Come hear to spoil yourself with some outrageous twists on comfort food and give yourself permission to indulge. Wine selections allow for some adventure and flights are available. The Jessy Salad and the Lobster Melt panini were wonderful . . . pommes frittes were outrageous particularly with dipping sauce. No one in our party of six was disappointed with anything... More

We spend two month a year in Carpinteria. The Corktree Cellars Wine and Bar are one of our favorites to go have a glass of wine and enjoy good conversations. They have a great outdoor seating area too.

After a long walk on a cool day the lobster bisque and lobster panini were a hi. Everyone enjoyed their lunch and the wines were excellent too. We will probably try it for dinner soon.

Went with a cousin, who is a local, for a Sunday evening dinner. Had the lobster bisque (excellent!) and the lobster melt (only slightly less excellent than the bisque!) and was very happy with my meal. Would definitely go again.

Went here as our first choice was closed. Not disappointed. Crab bisque $4 for a cup was excellent. We shared a carnitas pizza $14 (cheese, pulled pork, chilies dizzled with ranch dressing) and a Murph panini $11(roastbeef caramelized onions garlic aioli). Wide slection of beers and wines outdoor seating available. Overall a nice lunch experience with a very unique menu.... More
