The Brothers have another winner. After an extensive remodel the restaurant is open and serving really good food. We visited for lunch today, service was wonderful not too rushed. I had the Brothers burger which was a great grind, cooked exactly how I asked. If I had one critique the bottom bun was quite soggy so it was quite messy... More

This restaurant, now known as Brothers Restaurant at the Red Barn, does everything right. From the moment we walked in the door - quickly seated, water and bread (an unbelievable, freshly made assortment we could all share) arriving an instant later, and then time to peruse the wine list (excellent local choices). A high level of service experienced throughout the... More

Happened to be up in that area with friends for an afternoon of wine-tasting two days after Thanksgiving. To be honest, our first choice was the Hitching Post as I have an old friend who works there, but the wait was until 9pm and we were hungry campers at 6! One of our party recommended this place and we lucked... More

This is now called Brothers at the Red Barn. My husband and I went while on a mini vacation and we're hoping for good food and a relaxed atmosphere - vacation. The food was very good, but we were so rushed by the ultra efficient service we both felt like we were rushing to make a plane at the airport!... More

So if you haven't been to the Red Barn in a few years . . . you are in for a bit of a surprise. . . . New owners, new remodel, new menu. Though it still holds the cowboy aesthetic that made it great in first place, only now it's a more light and bright, but in no way... More

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Party of four and each of us were happy with our meals. The steak eaters found the meat to be perfectly done. And the lone chicken diner was very happy with her plate. The Martinis were good as was the calamari appetizer. And yes, we shared two desserts but should have only ordered one to share in... More

The atmosphere was elegant without being pretentious. The food was fantastic. I had the salmon and it was an excellent choice. My husband enjoyed his steak. The service was very professional and friendly. It was a little noisy in the bar but we were at the other end of the restaurant so were not bothered by the noise. I would... More

We were looking for a steakhouse, and the Garmin led us to the Brothers at the Red Barn. One of the best meals I've had in years. Reminded me of the old London Chophouse in Detroit. Great food, well presented, excellent service, fantastic ambiance, but much less formal. We were there for luncheon. They just added that. A limited menu,... More

We previously ate at another Brother's restaurant in Los Olivos and had a great experience so we decided to try this one during our recent stay. Really enjoyed the ambiance and service and can't say enough about the food. Absolutely the best prime-rib we've ever had (including Lawry's in Beverly Hills), great wine, and an overall a+ experience.
