Dwelling around in Santa Barbara we decided to take lunch in this fair food place. We sat outside and enjoyed the environment. The food was perfect and the service was very pleasant.

Very nice staff and a restaurant just off State Street in a small alley with other restaurants and shops. There is attractive outdoor or indoor seating. The burger with fig jam, caramelized onions, and Gorgonzola was delicious. Good selection of wines by the glass. Would go back and try other menu items!

This was my second visit to State and Fig. It is located on the Paseo off Figueroa St, just a few paces from State St. This is California cuisine at its eclectic best. The website has a sample menu to show what they are capable of. However their real menu changes according to what is fresh and delicious each day.... More

We had one night to have dinner in SB and this was recommended by a local shop owner as a must. He was right. Delicious menu, great choices and everything was delicious. We were stuffed and even munched on the leftover gnocchi the next day. Highly recommend the trio of toasts, shortribs (always a good choice), the crispy brussels sprouts,... More

We visit here often for business meetings. Sitting outside when the weather permits is a real treat. I nearly always order a salad and add salmon to it. The food is delicious.

Warm, personal service and great items on their not-too-crowded menu. Most people seemed to be ordering brunch-type items, but the burgers were recommended. Doors around restroom area look third-world in their condition, but the overall experience was really good.

This is a terrific place for lunch in the Arcade in Santa Barbara. The sandwich selection was wide, and our choices were excellent and different. I had the Kali Club: roasted turkey, bacon, baby arugula, market tomatoes, avocado, basil aioli toasted sourdough. My wife had the Fig & Pig Panini - Black Forest ham, Molinari mortadella, fig jam, baby arugula,... More

Big thanks to the servers who helped us turn a three-person lunch into an 8-person event. Great service. Nice atmosphere. The place is a little hard to find because it's in the arcade and signage isn't on the street. Disappointed that there was way too much salad dressing on my salad. For the cost, the salads overall weren't that great.

Off the tourist route--thankfully. We love this locals, casual restaurant. The small staff is knowledgeable and knows their customers. The chef is the owner and he is becoming part of the community, The food is very good--small plates fun to share. The fish special is always fresh and nicely sized and priced. Would not hesitate to recommend.
