“Great food, Excellent service, Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

The food was great. Big portions that can be shared by several people. Service was excellent. Second time there and planning on going back soon. What a great place! online reservation system worked out well. Our table was ready when we arrived, prompt and courteous service.

“Great Service to Compliment the Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Faced with two hungry shoppers in the party we tried Blush for an early evening meal. Chose to eat inside only because there'd been a light rain shower earlier; the alfresco tables looked fantastic. As it got darker the lounge area outside had real flame gas heaters in the tables that gave a good effect.
Inside was quiet and we were seated quickly and served drinks. Food order was taken as soon as we were ready and our wine arrived with an ice bucket to keep it cool.
My wife ordered a steak which was cooked to her liking and my daughter had a flatbread option which she said was "OK". I had the Sea Bass that was pretty nice, served with complimenting veg.
Food, service and location were great and was surprised the resaurant wasn't a little busier. Nice meal.

“Wonderful place for a small or big gathering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Blush is a great place to host large parties in the courtyard, the atmosphere is perfect for a for a mom's night out, and also works for the more intimate date night. The food and drink are fantastic and the location couldn't be better.

“Love the outdoor seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

I recently had such a fun night here. The outdoor seating is great, where we enjoyed the beautiful Santa Barbara night by the fireplace. I love the fun and creative cocktails on the cocktail menu and the grilled salmon and prosciutto and fig flatbread were excellent dinner choices. I have also enjoyed sharing a group platter with a large group for a girls’ night out.

“Fun place to hang with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Blush is a great place to meet after work, with friends or workmates. We've used it in the past for large groups - work parties, etc - they have a great outside patio where you can sit by the fireplace and have appetizers and drinks. The drinks are great and the appetizers are tasty and fun to share. It's so comfortable you might find you stay a lot later than you planned. :) -Lisa
