Very good by pricey

The food here is really good, just a bit pricey. The chicken caesar salad is excellent, definitely a try. Also the one with salmon. If you like meat, this restaurant won the best burgers in town!

We love this restaurant and go here a lot! They have something for everybody and for every budget! The dinner specials are super and as good as many great restaurants we have dined at. For lunch the salads are wonderful! One of my favorites is the grilled vegetable salad. The desserts are delicious too! I love the tiramisu!

Had a fantastic server that figured out we were from Canada. Awesome service. I had the penne (sounds simple but it wasn't) and despite its seeming simplicity it was absolutely fantastic. Server said it was a hidden gem that locals don't even know about (yet it was swamped at 7pm on a Friday) recommend it to anyone passing through

Food is consistently excellent. Never disappoints. Atmosphere is lovely. Local artists are featured on the walls and beautiful orchids are displayed. Patio dinning is lovely.

You cannot go wrong going for lunch or dinner at this local hangout. Had my favorite, the chicken cob salad for lunch and as always, it was delicious! They usually have specials as well and usually a choice of 2 soups. I've also had the vegetarian burrito and the shrimp and scallop tostada. I order it without the tostada because... More

Local restaurant that does a great job on meat and seafood. We were a party of 8 with kids and everyone was satisfied with the choices available. The salmon was great as was the filet. Be sure to try the bruschetta, excellent!

We had a fantastic last dinner here. Four courses, and each was excellent, with equally lovely service. There were plenty of choices for me the vegan, and my BF the carnivore. I travel a lot, and eat out wherever I go, and this was quite a find. I will go back here any time we are in the area. It's... More

Stopped by early on a Tuesday night. Wait staff attentive but not intrusive. Clean, comfortable, modern restaurant. Swordfish special was a good portion (and good tasting!). Tofu saute was excellent in taste, more than enough food, and a little too spicy for me. Waiter Miles was outstanding! Attractive outside dining as well. Convenient location just off the freeway in comfortable... More

First off this is not in Santa Barbara but in the adjacent town of Carpenteria. Carp, as locals sometimes call it, has one thing going for it if you happen to be from the east coast. The beaches have dunes. Not quite Cape Cod, but as close as you are going to get out here. So, if you are visiting... More

Have been going to Carpinteria for 22+ years and was told that Zookers has been there for 15... never saw or tried it until this trip... WOW, what we have been missing! FRESH, FRESH, FRESH.... wonder food (so good, we ate here twice during our time here). Spring Rolls were as good as any we have eaten, and the rest... More
