This was my wife and my second time at Juilenne and we loved it just as much as the first. It will probably be our go-to date night place now when visiting SB. During our first visit, about a year earlier, I had one of the best courses in my life (jerk octopus!). This time around the memorable dishes were... More

My husband and I decided on the three course tasting menu with wine pairing. Fabulous food and wonderful wines that they picked for us. Everything was fresh, spot-on and delicious

From the special stuffed squash blossom to the moist delicious with a spicy kick melt in your mouth...beef cheeks...oh yum.. Their chocolate mouse was quite tasty (i have tasted many from Dubai to Paris) and I would definitely order it again. What a delight it was - so glad I can go there again and again now that I am...

My wife and I made our 3rd visit to Julienne. The reason we keep returning is the food. We were not disappointed. My wife had arugula salad with goat cheese and peaches and the pancetta papardelle. I had smoked mussels and beef checks, with corn and gnocchi. All dishes were well prepared and delicious. I ordered a bottle of 2011... More

This was one of our favorite dinners in Santa Barbara -- the menu options are rather inventive and I think we got lucky that the taste of all the entrees we tried really worked for us. Our two favorite dishes were the jerked octopus over white bean puree with lime and cucumbers and a handmade ricotta ravioli with charred strawberries,... More

We chose Julienne for our last night in SB based on so many great reviews. The food and wine were both better than average and we enjoyed the pairing menu but the staff lacked basic customer service skills. Our servers seemed most disinterested in assisting us. Friendliness, humor and warmth go a long way in the service industry. Our expectation... More

The food was good, but a bit fussy--too many different ingredients. Service was very slow, and the waiter seemed bored. Some things on the tasting menu were fantastic, particularly the charcuterie, but I don't need to go here again.

Monday night, our first visit. Service was not quite friendly, but adequate. After what looked like an interesting but limited menu (ran out of one item), we had surprisingly ordinary asparagus soup, followed by good if really a little average dishes, which by description inspire you to think they are going to be really wonderful. But nothing was. Then the... More

We are true foodies who have traveled the world and dined at top establishments at every price point. This was an epic meal done to perfection. My boyfriend and I had the 5 course tasting menu and loved every single course. Well done. In our opinion this is one of the best places in California. Bravo to the owners and... More

We were excited to go here because I had read an article about this place and the fresh ingredients, etc. We were a bit disappointed with our selections. We did the 3 course wine pairings and we really enjoyed the wines (nice, non stingy pours). Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing. The anchovy salad didn't have the usual yummy... More
