We had a great early lunch food and staff were wonderful. Crab cakes, hamachi first rate. Great cocktails, and service perfect. Over 200$ for the two of us for a light lunch. They include a $18% gratuity as well.

Right on the ocean with an aquarium bar, great drinks and food in an elegant setting! Nothing lacking here.

While it's true that one has to either be a guest of the Biltmore Hotel or a member of the Coral Casino or willing to pay the day charge, the stunning view more than makes it worth every penny. Even on a cloudy day, the service and staff were gracious and the view was truly breath-taking.

The setting is beautiful--looking over the ocean. The decor of the restaurant is only OK. The food is pretty average and is very expensive. There are several better places just a short walk away in Mendecino.

Dear Jon T,
Thank you for reviewing your recent experience at Tydes Restaurant. I am extremely disappointed to hear that the restaurant aesthetic and menu options did not meet your expectations and you did not feel a sense of value during your visit.

If you would be so kind to provide us with a direct contact number or email via (sm.sab@fourseasons.com), we would like to speak with you further about resolving this situation.

I do hope that this experience has not permanently tarnished your impression of Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara and Tydes Restaurant as we greatly appreciate your patronage and hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back and provide you with the experience you deserve and should have received.

Warm regards,
Aaron Ide
Resort Manager

Love Tydes, we go for special occasions and are always pleased...they go the extra mile. It is especially nice to sit outside, listen to the waves and watch the sunset.
