We had a very good spicy cucumber mixed drink and the "Picada" cheese/crackers/meats was out of this world

4 of us went there for dinner. Sat outside on a beautiful night. Brussel sprout starter and cheese plate were very good. PB and J filet mignon sliders were different, not my style. Salmon and prawns were great

I absolutely love Milk & Honey. Being gluten-free out of necessity, I appreciate restaurants that have a variety of options for me. There is even a gluten-free menu with plenty of delicious options. The portions are intentionally small as they are meant to be shared. The drinks are creative and tasty and they do not water down the drinks. I... More

Was planning to dine at Milk & Honey but had to stay home due to a sick kid, so we ordered takeout from them instead. The food was great, even though it was packaged in takeout containers instead of plated in the restaurant. Flavors were good, although we found that based on the price, the dishes were a bit _too_...

I wish I was hungrier when I arrived because everything on the menu sounded great. This would be a fun place to visit with a group so you could try a bunch of different items. We loved the sweet potato fries and the lamb pops. The sliders looked great, but we did not order them. The one thing that was... More

Our favorites were the chorizo bites, the dates wrapped in bacon (date with a pig), and the kale chips. The bar scene is... More

I was recently in Santa Barbara for a bachelorette party and we decided to do tapas and drinks one night. I found Milk and Honey while searching for best restaurants in Santa Barbara and it lived up to the list title. The decor is cozy and romatic, perfect for a girls night or romantic date night. The wait staff was... More

milk & honey is a cozy place to share delicious tapas plates with friends. The craft cocktails are outstanding - you must try their weekly special! Conveniently located in downtown Santa Barbara.

Loved everything I had but really enjoyed the bbq pork sliders, brussel sprouts, omg salad, and sweet potato fries. The bbq sliders we ordered a second round of. Service was very good and value was very good as well.
