Not that great. The cauliflower soup tasted canned with a sprig of fennel thrown on top. The ahi was cold and the soba noodle salad that comes with it did not taste very fresh. Even the iced tea tasted old. One person got the special white sea bass which was very good. The lemon cheesecake was also very good and... More

We stop here after games and when in the area and always have a good meal. Great for dining as well as somewhat casual. Don't believe it has outside seating but it's very open inside. Creative dishes as well as standards. Reuben sandwich for lunch was excellent.

Stopped for lunch in our way back to the central coast. Varied menu with a good combination of flavors. We had the Zooker chicken sandwich, the Mediterranean sandwich. The homemade pita chips and humus were especially tasty.

There were 7 of us eating at Zookers. Starters were the Chips, and Hummus, then the Spring Rolls. Both were a huge hit at our table. The bread was very good, although we did need to flag the staff to bring more bread. The Chicken was amazing, as were the seafood dishes, and scallop with shrimp tostada. Cobbler was tasty,... More

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was incredible. I loved all the orchid plants that I found out that a customer loans to the restaurant. I thought this was incredible that someone would love such expensive orchids and spoke of the responsibility of the owners and workers in the restaurant. It was my birthday that night and they treated... More

We tried this based in the Trip Advisor reviews and the short walk from the Holliday Inn . Bit of a mixed bag overall one waitress very polite the other pretty much chucked the bread basked on the table - no interaction, no eye contact , clearly having a bad day. My turkey meat loaf was good - but the... More

The food is always consistently good with friendly service. You can tell it is popular with the locals. We drive from Goleta just to enjoy their food!

We went here for a birthday dinner and the food was excellent. We were just visiting Carpinteria for the week but there were many locals eating here which is always a good sign. We started with steamed mussels to share and we were all sopping up the delicious steaming liquid at the end. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the... More
