This restaurant started out as a breakfast/ brunch and lunch place and did so well they expanded to do dinners. It reminds me of a little European bistro with a small indoor space and an outdoor patio shaded by umbrellas. Some weekends, I can get a table immediately. For Sunday brunch, I have waited over an hour. I love their... More

Happened upon Scarlett Begonia after our yoga class - thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful, the food was delicious - we enjoyed gluten free bread, I had the eggs over potatoes - while I don't normally eat potatoes, they were so delicious I indulged in a few. We will be back next time we are in... More

Great atmosphere and stellar fresh food! Definitely on the upscale side even though we sat outside. My food (a burger) had to be sent back because it was cooked (rare) other than specified (medium). The service was great, and worth another visit back!

We stopped in for dinner and had: salted pretzel with mustard, little gems, charred cauliflower, duck breast. Amazing food and great, friendly service. Meal for two with drinks was about 120 all in. The food combinations were unusual and delicious. This place could hold its own with LA's best. We will definitely come back next time we're in town!

My wife and I enjoyed our Valentine's dinner at Scarlett Begonia. The only downside is that the tables are set very close to each other so it is not the most romantic setting. The servers were friendly and efficient. Although they had difficultly uncorking our bottle of wine but another server came to her assistance. All of the food from... More

The food, atmosphere, and service were all great at Scarlett Begonia. It's a little hard to find, but worth it. We sat in the outdoor area and were warmed with heaters which was nice. The only thing I'd say is that the portions are quite small. We ordered several dishes, but still left a bit hungry.

Incredible Easter brunch! We were passing through town on our way back to L.A. from SB wine country. Luckily, we had made reservations because they weren't taking any walk-ins on Easter Sunday. It was a limited, 2-course menu that provided a lot of food and was perfect for Easter brunch. The cocktails looked good too, though we didn't try any.

Staff was outstanding despite working short handed. Tough to make a decision on what to order, it all looked great. Did splurge on the biscuit flight: oh my, the bacon maple biscuit was special.

We had breakfast at the Scarlett Begonia earlier this week after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and really enjoyed it. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed a cool but beautiful morning. The restaurant is in a tucked away and charming setting in Santa Barbara. The menu was interesting and the food even better. The staff was equally authentic and enthusiastic... More

My mother, aunt and I were in Santa Barbara on the ONE rainy weekend in Southern California. I mean, it was pouring! I digress...Hungry for breakfast I looked onto the World Wide Web to direct us. Little did I know that I would still be dreaming of their breakfast a week later! I am a "clean eater" so finding a... More
