We are delighted to have added additional outdoor seating but Santa Barbara nights are chilly so bring a sweater or light jacket!Fresh, local ingredients, prepared with care. Excellent wines that reflect the quality and character of our region and work in concert with the cuisine. Warm, inviting ambiance, service at a relaxed, leisurely pace. Santa Barbara ‘Wine Country Cuisine’ means we source our ingredients using an ‘as-fresh-and-as-local-as-possible’ approach, with fish from the Santa Barbara Channel and produce from the surrounding countryside. We then take into account how these flavors can be presented in concert with our local wines. We believe you’ll taste the difference. Bon Appètit!

    We dined at a number of truly wonderful restaurants during our stay in Santa Barbara, but hands down, we thought Toma was the best. Everything we had was excellent and our server was so engaging, professional and totally on top of everything, he and the cooking staff really delivered a wonderful evening.

    We had an early (6 pm) Wednesday reservation on the first floor. Our daughters loved the options on the kids menu and all the food the adults had was excellent. I highly recommend the NE clam chowder, it’s the real deal. Service was very quick, attentive, and friendly. And the Mai Tai is as strong as it is delicious. Just realize that the second floor and patio don’t take reservations, and it seems like some nights are for special tasting menus only. Check before you go and you will enjoy!
