“Great Deal With Groupon!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Had dinner for 2 with a BOTTLE of wine included. We started with the crab cake appetizer. It was filled with crab and not bread crumbs. The guacamole they serve with it is very good-chunky with lime and cilantro. I had the Surf and Turf. My steak was cooked to perfection at med-rare. The shrimp and scallops were fresh and tasty. I enjoyed the truffle oil veggies. The groupon included dessert, we were full but ordered the chocolate molten cake. It was delicious. We took our leftovers home for lunch the next day. We will be back to try the tuna tartare. The server was fantastic. Only complaint is that I didn't like the tepenade spread provided with the great tasting bread.

“Totally Surprised”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The food was amazing, our server Mallory super. It's part of the Hyatt, not very busy, however when it is discovered here in town you will have to fight for a seat. Patrons throughout, we're genuinely happy. as we're we.

“Loved the Hyatt Santa Barbara restaurant.....”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We enjoyed the Bistro 1111 while staying at the Hyatt. After long days on the beach, it was great to have a very nicely prepared meal right at the hotel, as they served dinner until 10 PM... no driving! We dined fairly late each evening, not arriving until about 9 PM, so the restaurant was not crowded and no wait. Ask for a table along the side windows.

Grilled salmon and grilled halibut great! Friendly and professional service. Good choice.

“West Coast 2012 - Menzies Family”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Used this bistro for both breakfast and dinner several times - service was great and the food was fine. No highlights or low lights to report. Bar area was great with plenty of TV's to catch up on the Olympic's highlights in the evening.

“Wonderful Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Anytime we came to the Bistro we felt welcomed and had delicious food at every meal! There were so many choices at the breakfast buffet we would have a different meal each morning. The lunches were beautifully prepared and always delicious from sandwiches and salads to steaks and wines. The bar in the bistro was great to hang out with family and friends.
