It is so nice to escape the blistering heat of Phoenix by escaping to Santa Barbara. And, it is so nice to find a wonderful knock-off of our new love for cuisine of Lyon. We visited this lovely and relaxed restaurant just off of State...More

Bouchon has a lovely menu and excellent service. We ordered the salmon and sea bass and both were prepared to perfection. It has a very nice vibe. Great for date night! I highly recommend.

All around excellent - service, wine list, food. Quiet ambience. Took the family here for my retirement dinner. Ten people - each found dishes they loved. One of the top ten in Santa Barbara [we live here].

I like it, A lot, don't get me wrong. Lovely environment. Great dining. But really a splurge for most people. Even if I want to splurge now, it's such an "it" spot now, i'd probably rather go somewhere else that's not so trendy & pricey.
