My friend and I stopped in for dinner and had the prosciutto and arugula flatbread. It's an appetizer, but it is big enough for an actual meal! Then we had the chicken milanese with fettucine alfredo and that was delicious! Generous helping on that too with 2 pieces of chicken and a large helping of fettucine. It was all really... More

We stopped in here for lunch. The food and the service were good. The décor evokes a bygone era and is tastefully done.

A long established tradition excels past any and all previous experiences shared at The Chase. As a restaurant of quality and in a a location of prominence in the heart of Santa Barbara, The Chase stands out not for resting on previous laurels and it's outstanding residence on State Street but for going beyond its stellar reputation and serving premier...

We have been to the Chase many times. The staff is always friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is charming Prices have ticked up a bit in the last year. The Cesar salad was very flavorful. The fish chowder is one of the best things on the menu. Chicken Marsala this time lacked the nice flavor of the Marsala and the... More

Lunch with Frank Sinatra and Sophia Loren looking down while you eat is a good place for me. Old world charm and classic Italian menu. Chicken Milanese and Chicken Parmesan were the order of the day. Butter pecan cheesecake rounded out the meal. Good place for lunch or dinner

I ate here at the recommendation of a business colleague whilst in the SB area, and was very glad I did. Real Italian feel to this place, and to the food also. I chose the calamari steak picatta with fettuccini, which was cooked to perfection, and accompanied by a glass of Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio. I don't score many reviews as... More

We've been coming here for 20+ years and love it! Description of food we ate; salmon that was flawlessly cooked (moist and tasty), perfect veggies, PERFECT Sapphire martini with a lemon twist (as requested), wonderful and well done eggplant, trademark fettuccini Alfredo, and THE BEST Caesar salad! The only thing I miss and that MUST BE BROUGHT BACK Is the... More

Here is a guarantee of a good meal at a long time standard of Santa Barbara. Small and intimate with good food and drink.

Enjoyed a late lunch at Chase. The drinks were good--the food was very good--chicken parm and chicken piccata--and our server and was attentive and nice. As a restaurant owner, it was obvious to me however that no one was paying attention to the bigger picture and guest satisfaction--so some things were missed for us and other diners--like waiting too long...
