Came by after a recommendation from a friend, but the bartender was so rude, was looking forward to good food but left after wasting my money on a drink, maybe he had a bad day, but don't take it out on your customers

Great place with great drinks, been here a lot and love all the bartenders! But I must say it's very appalling when the manager on duty has female friend in a wig is rubbing all over him in one of the few sectored tables on the back patio. Bad taste for a manager and bad customer service when tables outdoors... More

We were recommended the bar by our hotel opposite, The Wayfarer for some late night (9pm) food and drinks and it was rest. We had the humus and Pitta/veg and the chickens sliders, both of which were really really good. Drinks- they had Aperol Spritz! Live music too and lively but not to busy. A great find a bit outside... More

Visited with my friend. Great food. Quick service. The only thing I didn't like was how much attention the staff paid to regulars. Service was still good though.

A local recommended the bar and it is a hidden gem! I had a great drink with cucumber and tequila that was delicious.

The Burgers are huge and delicious. The humus filling and very good. After 7 pm it is difficult to get a table. Seating is available outdoors as well. The bar is very lively. Try the vodka with cucumber and jalapeño - or other creative cocktails. This place is happening! When in SB go where the locals go - here. Hint:... More

This was our best find in Santa Barbara, not only because it was located close to our hotel (across the Street from the Wayfarer), but for many other reasons. If you are looking for a great place to try some amazing cocktails, real good drinks, in a fun, casual, neighborhood bar type of feel, this is the place. The staff... More

We stopped in at Seven Bar on a rainy Saturday afternoon recently. The place was packed, but the hostess found a table for our party of seven. We tried the Seven Style Fries and the Parmesan Truffle Fries, both delicious. All in all a warm comfortable atmosphere with good food and good service.

Thank Berta H
