Great night out at Bantam. Arrived on a busy Saturday night, put name on the list and enjoyed a glass of wine while waiting with family and friends. Although the place was hopping, we were seated after about 15-20 minutes. Enjoyed a nice crab appetizer, followed by just about everything on the menu. Loved the different pizza options and especially the pork belly special. Quality, innovative constantly changing menu and all dishes prepared with obvious attention to detail. Service was excellent and desert capped a very nice experience. If I had to pick nits would say they could improve their wine selection. Just think they could do better in that regard is all. I will definitely be back. Great vibe to the place, kid friendly and like that they don't take reservations, so can drop in any time and know what to expect. Comfy Santa Cruz vibe with hipster flavor, so what's not to like? Also, quite affordable given the food quality and level of service. Enjoy!
