We had a wonderful lunch at Adama. The menu was extensive and our choice was very tasty. The waitress could not be more helpful and caring and took very good care of us. In fact the entire staff was just lovely. Really enjoyed the food and the ambiance outside was fantastic. It also looked wonderful inside the restaurant. A little... More

Would have walked out, but was with our son and did not want to cause a scene. Was seated at a round table near an old white stove, with high back uphosteres chairs that were greasy and filthy. The area rug under the table was covered in stains. The food was fair. I ordered the onion rings( about 6 for... More

Fantastic food and totally free of gluten...they even took all equipment apart before going completely vegan and gluten free. Truly distinctive with all food hand made in inviting atmosphere. Healthy and great tasting.

What a fabulous place! We loved the huge selection of food that was all delicious with a loving eye for healthy preparation. The nachos were a serious highlight. Perfect blend of cashew cheese and daiya cheese. We also loved the kale salad, tempeh fish sticks (perfect preparation) and were wildly excited about the sweet potato fries. It was a wonderful...

We had the burger, club sandwich, sweet potato fries, lemonade, and carrot/beet/kale juice combo and they were all fantastic. They take great pride in their food, preparation, and presentation. We got chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookie, and chocolate muffin to go which were also great. They gave us a taste of their non-dairy gelato which was smooth, creamy and also... More

Although we missed the opportunity to have lunch at Adama, this is not a mistake we will make again. A totally gluten free establishment with zero risk of cross-contamination. A full menu gives lots of options for everyone. What we did take advantage of was the full case of desserts and treats - cakes, pies, cookies, .......... beautifully presented and... More

As often happens when assigning stars to a restaurant, this was a close call. In so many way ways, Adama is 5 star. The setting is attractive and tranquil. And the fact that everything is vegan plus gluten-free is simply spectacular. Had a very good lunch here. The cream of mushroom soup was out of this world. As was the... More

We came through Santa Barbara to visit some friends and they really wanted us to eat here. I had brought some work mates for a bite to eat. The food was excellent and not what you'd expect for a vegan restaurant. I had a veggie burger and thought it was really meat by the texture and spices. We also had... More

We had a lovely family dinner here. There were only 2 vegetarians and no vegans in our group, so we were curious to see how flavorful things would be. The menu had surprising range and everything was quite tasty. We didn't try any of the vegan baked goods, but were encouraged enough we'll investigate them next time.

I would go more often if I could! We stopped her on our way up north. This was my favorite dining experience on our recent trip and I would go again in a heartbeat. I love being able to dine out without worrying about what is safe of the menu. Adama inspired me to make my own vegan "tuna" salad... More
