Had a good meal here on a busy Friday Nite. Positive was that they take and honor reservations. The food was good as were the drinks. In the thick of things in so parking is a challenge. Worth the trip.

Just flew into Santa Barbara from NC. This restaurant is close to the airport, with the beach and pier attached to it. Great place to spend some time if close by.
