“lovely dinner”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We love bistro food and this fit the bill. The atmosphere was great and the food excellent. The service unfortunately was poor with only one waiter who seemed to be handling the whole restaurant.

“Elegant setting, excellent food”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We sat outside on a beautiful Californian evening and had a wonderful meal with excellent yet unobtrusive service. Being able to take your own wine is an added advantage. A memorable evening.

“elegant restaurant off the beaten path and relaxing”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

After a long day of motorcycle riding, I was treated as a guest to this restaurant for a very tasty dinner in an elegant old-world setting. One of the few restaurants where I could actually hear conversation as it's wasn't too noisy. I wanted to sit outside but we had three people which made it challenging. Such a gorgeous location and ambiance. Highly recommend!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We searched for a nice place to have a family birthday dinner, and this one won -- we're very glad it did, as everyone from the ages of 8 to 55 had a lovely time, great food, we all enjoyed it tremendously. We've been back a few times as a couple or small group and it's been consistently good.

“Santa Barbara's best kept secret.”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We had our wedding luncheon here and we go back whenever in SB. The food is amazing and beautifully presented. They have a wonderful wine selection and are known as a wine bar. They are located in the historic Upham hotel in a Victorian home. It is such a romantic place . Make sure to check out the beautiful grounds and garden. A very special place.
