A memorable meal! For all the wrong reasons. The worst meal I've ever eaten in my 40 years in Santa Barbara. My wife and I could only laugh. Our server was sweet but incompetent. From the wrong drink orders to being unable to explain the menu. The fried calamari appetizer was bland, chewy with a horrible spicy dipping sauce. Then... More

Great place right on State Street - best caesar salad I've ever had - atmosphere is laid back but elegant. Great music playing; friendly wait staff...will go back again!

Arrived a half an hour early for our dinner reservation because I forgot what time I had booked it. Luckily, tables were available and we were seated immediately. Unfortunately, the tables are so close together, that my mom bumped into the people at the next table and dropped a dish. You could tell that the patrons sitting next to us... More

Based on the drinks I don't remember the bar tenders real name but I just call him Pablo Escobar. Awesome place!

Just got into town and tried this place. I tried the tuna melt sandwich. Good portion for a single person. Reasonable priced considered being in town.

The restaurant has a comfortable and old fashioned feel. All our party enjoyed the Italian dishes. Worth a visit if you can walking up State Street.

This is my second time dining at Chase. Last summer I ate at their small patio. It was a lovely evening, the food was good as was the service. I decided to take my wife here on a chilly night. As it was so cold, the patio was closed. The inside was very dated. Lots of mirrors and leather, very... More

The menu said fine dining, while the TV above the bar had a different story to tell. Was a bit cramped, and dinner seatings were close to the bar. Which at times was louder than preferred. I had a veal ravioli, the whole dish just had all the same texture. So might as well gotten a stew or a soup... More
