Amazing food, fantastic service.
Went there for anniversary. The food quality and service was not as good as our previous experience
Can’t say enough about this fabulous restaurant.
Wonderful ambiance, terrific top notch service, a menu that entices you to order and share multiple things...
So glad we came here after hearing wonderful things and staying right down the street as a bonus!
Signature cocktails are fabulous!
We chose 2 that they say are always on the menu, they’re so popular-
Tuscan Pear & The Local
Warm bread came first with butter accented with pink Himalayan sea salt. Incredible! Also with it, fried green olives stuffed with blue cheese !
Omg, just bring me a big plate of those please!
We couldn’t agree on a salad to share so we each got our own and that was fine, not huge.
You can never go wrong with burrata & heirloom tomato. Pine nuts and olive oil, balsamic drizzle ... Mmmmm
The main dishes were hard to choose as the entire menu was tempting.
Short Rib & Scallops were the winners.
Dessert was the same story as salads, can’t choose. Got 2!
Warm chocolate torte and citrus olive oil cake.
They still brought us our small complimentary dessert for our anniversary, raspberry mousse. Super tasty as well !
We told our waiter we were very inpresssed and thankful we are from out of town ... we’d be in big trouble living nearby !
Next time (every time) in town, we WILL be back !
As always whenever we visit Santa Barbara we plan a dinner at Toma our favorite restaurant in town, the food, friendly, professional staff are always wonderful, once again
we were not disappointed, see you again...scott & vicki
Amazing! So happy that Toma is back open. They adhere to the social distancing guidelines. The food and service is outstanding. One of our favorite places to dine!
Wonderful food and great drinks—as always! We have always loved dining at Toma and they did not disappoint!!
I thought the food and service was excellent! It was my husbands birthday and they brought out a lava cake at no charge. Toma is my husband and I favorite restaurant in SB!
Can’t get enough of the flare, food and ambiance at Toma..
love love the olive oil cake !!! Wish the pieces were bigger .
It was amazing!! Definitely will come back!
This establishment is hands-down the finest restaurant in Santa Barbara ...the food was scrumptious, service top notch and overall experience is just short of breath taking. I made the trip especially to dine two consecutive evenings —coming from LA to celebrate the reopening.

Great dinner and ambiance with safe environment and attention to COVID protocols. As goo as always!
Toma is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. The restaurant is 1st class on all levels. Of course, the food is the main star and is worth waiting any amount of time needed to secure a reservation. One additional point I have to add is that this restaurant has taken the COVID-19 concern very seriously and has done all that I could see to protect its customers. If you are going to be in Santa Barbara don’t miss a chance to dine at this restaurant!
So happy they are back open, everything on the menu is great, you cannot go wrong. The wine list is well curated, and I always spring for a Brunello, but they keep it interesting with a monthly by the glass menu as well.
Wonderful evening! This was Toma’s first night open since March. They didn’t miss a beat! Scallops with lobster risotto and other goodies was fabulous. My husband had the black linguini and clams which also was terrific. So glad we found you!
Great food is great along with the service. Sat outside with a very enjoyable atmosphere. Toma’s has a well deserved rating and Will Not Disappoint.
Wonderful place. Beautiful location, excellent service and amazing food.
Tom does a great job. We were so happy to be able to celebrate his reopening! We felt so relaxed and comfortable within the new Covid restrictions.
His restaurant is top notch and our favorite in town!
Superb food, excellent service, and refined atmosphere.
In the two years we have visited Santa Barbara 8-10 times for medical appointments at Sansum. First we discovered Casa del Mar Inn...great place to reside near the HarborWalk and then Toma Restaurant, which is now our go-to place for great food, service, a short walk near the water. Thanks for being there. Bring back the olives, please!!!!!
We enjoyed a spec dinner with our kids on Friday night at Toma. We loved the Tuna Cones, a family favorite. All of the food was excellent and the service outstanding.
Loved the drinks and romantic ambience- nice service too! Would go back for any date or special occasion. Would be even better with live music.
Always great food and great service!
Wonderful as always.
What a gem in Santa Barbara Loved the food and the atmosphere Will be back for sure
As always the cocktails and food are innovative and tasty. We've never been disappointed at Toma.
My favorite restaurant! They have it all. Good food, great service, beautiful ambiance!
Collen was our server and he was great! Super friendly and helpful. Food and wine was delish. A little loud and crowded but we had a great evening!
Hard to fault. Service was outstanding - constantly attentive but not intrusive. Food, delicious. Ambience - a full room but you could still hear conversation comfortably.
A friend and I went for restuarant week and were very impressed. I had been reluctant to try it due to the cost but after going, it is well worth it and we would both go back! The Ahi cones were very creative and amazing tasting! The Shortrib was melt in your mouth good. The wait staff was quite pleasant, and knew just went to check in and were not overbearing. Highly recommend Toma!
Great food and wonderful service with a smile plus beautiful surroundings.
You can't do better. The restaurant was full and not too noisy to talk.
We had a perfect meal.
What a delicious, intimate dinner we had at Toma! Our service was wonderful and we loved every bite pf our meals.
It was a fantastic experience. Food was amazing—-scallops, salmon, tuna cones.
Swedish Maria is all about customer experience.
Never fails to impress. The food is over the top delicious and you end up eating way more than you intend to.
Whenever we drive down to Santa Barbara we eat at Toma’s. It never disappoints. Great food and lovely service. Always go away happy and full.❤️
We had a lovely meal with excellent service. Our expectations were high and Juan and his colleagues did not disappoint. Can't wait to return.
Good food and good vibe. Restaurant is very warm inside, but the scallops were cooked perfectly! Would recommend for nice date night.
Always the best- everything is stellar every time!
Came here for an anniversary dinner, always a fun experience with delicious food and drinks and outstanding service. Toma never disappoints!
Wonderful food, wonderful service! We have no complaints, it was hands down the best meal we had while in Santa Barbara!
