Reviews for the black sheep

The food was good, but we were here on a Saturday evening and our experience was just off...? I think our mistake was sitting inside. They seated us very close to the bar and all we could see and pick up on was the various staff members looking completely miserable, and walking around stressed out. It was VERY clear something was going on... and it was not busy at this time at all. We were the only customers inside and there was no music playing so it was this total awkward full review
I don't like giving bad reviews especially post COVID. I love to support local businesses especially restaurants so I have quite patience and understanding. BUT this restaurant right here is one of the WORST actually if not the only ONE WORST Dine In experience I ever had. OVERRATED FOOD JUST AVERAGE POOR SERVICE RUDE UNPROFESSIONAL FELT DISCRIMINATED Planned to go to Santa Barbara for the weekend. We already expect it will be busy as hell so I checked on Yelp this place pop full review

Amazing food! I don't say this often, but every dish was impeccable. Beautifully presented and flavored to perfection. We tried a bunch of dishes, ranging from vegetarian thai cauliflower, roasted beets, to a meat lovers dream - bone marrow bruschetta and braised rabbit. The service was fast, attentive and hospitable. We loved the street seating as well. The restaurant also has personal heaters for each table for chilly nights. Great experience!
