Miro garners one of the few 5-star reviews that I give. From the service to the setting to the food - all were first class.The service was attentive, but not stifling and formal. Eating outside with its sweeping view of the Pacific is perfection and feels like a getaway even if you're only there for dinner. My husband deemed his duck confit the best he's had (and we've had the dish in the Dordogne) - not overwhelmed with beans and a perfect combo of crisp and moist. My halibut was best in show - also crisped on the outside and moist inside. Miro is 13 miles outside of Santa Barbara, so not the most convenient; however, perfect situation if you also combine it with a visit to their spa!

I've been in, and ordered from, wine cellars at the Canlis in Seattle, the Savoy in London and many other locations. This competes with all of them quite effectively. It has a great view and great food.

Miro at Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara has a great ocean view, tasteful decor, and superior service, but the food was just decent. No single dish in our party stood out as anything spectacular. The dessert selection sounded fantastic and we anticipated at least a great finish to our dinners. When the desserts were served, quite a disappointment. Dinner went from good to average (or less) in one quick moment. My five-year-old child wanted the ice cream sandwich dessert and it amounted to pretty much nothing more than a scoop and a half of ice cream with a few cookies on the plate.

On a good note, I found a gin drink called "Ticket to Paradise" before dinner to be very tasty and delicious. After the drink, I think the pilot lost the map.

The service was fabulous. We could not eat the food. The fish was greasy and tasted like rubber. My husband could only eat the salad.

Great ambiance, but service is not superb and the crumbs on the table were never cleared before the next course... Food was very good.
