    What a treat to return here. Surf & turf of Hope Ranch mussels and burger from great cuts of beef were probably best I’ve ever experienced. Wife had the fresh local fish. Santa Barbara dining is generally excellent…. Barbareno is among our top choices. Cole was an exceptional server.

    Perfect date night birthday celebration! The only not ideal part was the music was not upbeat - rather classical - which is fine as it music was beautiful but too loud. The drinks are great, food is delicious and portions are huge, and every staff member was very polite and professional. We’ll be back!

    We had a wonderful evening with delicious food, lovely wine and great service. The courtyard is beautiful and the noise level was low so we could hear each other well. We hadn’t been there since the new owner took over and it’s fantastic! A new SB favourite!
