Such a lovely historical Santa Barbara venue dating back to the 1870’’s! I love dining on the patio. The staff are gracious, and I adore their cuisine. Yum! I am craving their Crab Louie. Great lamb too


This was attached to the hotel we were staying at, The Upham, but I was advised it was a completely separate business. So we turned up, no reservation, but was seated promptly on the veranda. Having spent all day walking up and down State St, we wer not amazingly hungry. My wife had Filet Mignon, $38, which was excellent. I had the Fettuccini, which was OK. Service was prompt and friendly, but nothing over the top. All in all a good experience. I would recommend.


We found this place at random on Yelp. We were looking for a place that away from the fray of State St. It was incredible. Every aspect was beyond our expectations. The seafood was incredibly fresh. The tomato salad is one I'm still trying to recreate at home. The portion sizes were not stingy. The historic building it's located in was charming.
