I strongly recommend this restaurant; the best that we visited during our week's stay in Santa Barbara.
We began our meal with delicious, complimentary cornbread and muffins. There were many exciting entree options; we both ordered the wonderful blackened salmon (the Lite cooking option, olive oil instead of garlic butter). It came with tasty new(-ish) potatoes and steamed vegetables: squash and carrot slices. They tasted fine but - a minor complaint really - they were a little boring. But who cares about vegetables when the deserts are so superb? We split the day's special, a Louisiana bread pudding souffle soaked in grand marnier, which we covered with whiskey creme sauce.
This restaurant prides itself on its team approach to service, so we met several servers during our meal. This worked very efficiently.
To add to the evening's fun, the decor was warm and entertainingly Burbon Street style, such as paintings with a musical theme and playing cards stuck to the ceiling. High windows overlooked wrap-around wrought iron railings, from which were draped colorful Mardi Gras beads. The green, fibre-glass hammerhead shark that hovered above our heads had nothing to do with New Orleans, but it certainly looked cool.
