Hey, I had to have the steak frittes just because this is a bistro and the meal was excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious and the frittes were French like and good with a little parmesan/truffle oil. The service was also excellent and they offer a great selection of wines in all price categories.... More

Had lunch during the week with a high school friend. The décor was very classy inside & comfortable outside. Beautiful day so we chose outside dining. The menu had some fun descriptions for our favorite lunch items. My wife & school friend had the chicken club & I had the pork sandwich. My wife's first comment was "taste this Chibadda... More

Went for a little adult time with our son and wife. Each of us got a different flight of wine to try. We shared several of their tapas style plates, of which the Ahi tuna was outstanding.

We stopped in here to get a salad to take back to others that were at the hotel. Great salads. A few days later 12 of us ate there for lunch on Sunday. Lobster Mac and Cheese was good. Others in our party said the other salads were great and the soup was good too.

Often stay in Santa Barbara and love visiting Carpenteria but never had a meal there. Decided to try Corktree Cellars for lunch and so glad we did. We sat in the outside patio which is small but lovely and shady. Nice views if you are facing the street. Shared the artichoke and kale dip - outstanding flavour and plenty enough... More

Per the title says, big fan of their lobster dishes as well as their pretty decent happy hour menu offering a fare variety of light bites, local beers and wines. Always friendly staff and available seating inside or out. Thanks for always taking care of us over the years Cork Tree team! Best, ~S

Some friends and I met up here around 9pm on a Friday evening for some dessert and coffee. Beautiful space, very inviting. Coffee is served via individual french presses. It's quite strong and a little bitter, so you'll probably want some extra cream or sugar for it. We went with the donuts that's served with nutella, cream cheese and a... More

We spent the weekend in Carp and didn't want to get in the car to drive to places to eat. We came here for the tapas and it didn't disappoint! The charcuterie plate win half cheese and half meat was very generous. The steamer pot had the one of the best mussels. Again the portion were very generous. Just these... More
