It's rare to find restaurants that are really high quality without being "snooty." Zookers definitely qualifies. The service was efficient and friendly, the food was wonderful, and they had a nice selection of wine. A great place to unwind and enjoy farm-to-table cuisine in a...More

Lunch today was excellent. My previous meals at Zooker's did not live up to their reputation but finally, today was great! The server was knowledgeable and professional and the best service I've experienced at Zooker's. We shared a great grilled ahi salad and the grilled...More

Stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday driving up to Santa Barbara from LA. Blown away by the quality of the food and service. Delicious! Great place to stop while driving up the coast.

The menu will surprise you with a variety of Mediterranean dishes. Not bad. However, paper napkins, no tablecloth, wine list or beer, doesn't set right for me. No vibe that I look for when I'm out eating.

The food is fantastic - love the Ahi all ways and the chicken. The "atmosphere" is ok - inconsistent with the food and prices

Zookers' food is excellent - organic meats, vegan meals, nice wine list, etc. The Watkins Ranch filet mignon is to die for and you'll never get enough of the pita chips and hummus. They recently made a change to their onion ring recipe - now...More

I had the Zookers signature chicken sandwich and it was one of the best I've ever had. Their description: Spicy chicken breast, chilis, avocado, jack cheese, cilantro sauce on a French roll. That really doesn't do it justice. My wife had the sandwich that had...More
