Reviews by the General Public

Reviewer: JB from Dana Point, CA
We parked in the lot behind Chase and entered thru the back door and were seated immediately. Had a reservation "Open Table" on the internet. The food was as good as ever, as we have been here many times over the years. The menu had something for everyone. Mine was the best Calamari steak. All seven of us were very happy. The service was excellent, not hurried, which was fine for this party. It was a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Reviewer: VTA from Santa Barbara, CA
This was my favorite place in SB. and I am sad to say it is heading in the wrong direction. Tried it again this week . Waitress was very complaisant. only a few tables eating so don't blame it on a busy night. #1. .ordered wine came out wrong . # 2..Ordered dinner with soup and salad first . Dinner came but no soup or salad first. # 3 ..Dinner came ,"Chicken Marsala". No wine sauce or mushrooms on the dry out very very thin sliced chicken. when told the waitress it was not correct she put the menu in front off me and said SHOW ME WHAT IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE . after that I walked out and when to Mexican . NEVER to eat there again . maybe drinks in the future . SAD it has gone this way after many years past off a very nice joint.

food and service is incredible !old school feel.Italian New York style restaurant, kind of feels like Rao’s in New York,this place is a must if you're in Santa Barbara and want some good Italian. Mangia bene, ridi spesso, ama molto. Buon appetito! 

Think twice
Reviewer: Geoff from Santa Barbara, CA
Despite several less than great past experiences at Chase over recent years, we tried again tonight. Food and service were both uncharacteristically poor. Dinner tonight had pork in a chicken salad. After alerting the waiter to the problem the salad was taken back and after 15 minutes returned to the table. All surface pork had been picked out but one layer below the lettuce there was still ample pork. Only a weak 'I only work here' response from the waiter. Our last visit here.

Excellent food,the salads are awesome, this restaurant makes their own croutons and the Italian bread is fresh!!! We ate Alaska halibut & grilled ckn& angel hair pasta.yService is also excellent, I will definitely return :)iam visiting from Simi valley.

Plan on a visit.
Reviewer: Maria from Washington State
I plan on visiting my hometown soon and this used to be one of my favorite hangouts. I hope to find good customer service, and of course the great food. DON"T disappoint me please.

Holiday Disaster
Reviewer: Nancy from Santa Barbara, CA
Although the service was ok, the food was completely disappointing. Not only did it take an hour, but was tiny , over cooked portions with no presentation ! The shrimp piccata with Alfredo was just horrible. Also, with a party of 10, the manager was ungracious and rude.

We have many choices in San Diego , but when we ate at the Chase I can honestly say the service and food was excellent. I see some negative comments here, maybe some people are never satisfied. Our experience was FIVE STARS. !!

My favorite Italian Restaurant in Santa Barbara
Reviewer: Christine from Phoenix AZ
At home dining feeling and the food was absolutely delicious.

Our favorite restaurant in Santa Barbara...
Reviewer: George Banks from Santa Barbara, CA
No one will replace GLORIA, but the pretty young girl whose name I think is Tiandra is a very close second. She does a lovely job, polite, courteous, professional, bright and beautiful. The food is 5 star... Leo makes the BEST margarita on the planet... Sincerely, George Banks...

As good as I remembered
Reviewer: BuleriaChk from Santa Barbara, CA
I hadn't been to the Chase for quite a long time, but the Chicken Picatta is every bit as good as I remembered - even better than that of Presto Pasta, which I also like. I was alone, and there were no single tables available outside, so I had to eat at the bar (I REALLY miss the old days when the Chase had tables inside instead of those lounges from the East Coast 1950's)... There was a good portion of chicken, tender and breaded perfectly in that delicious lemon sauce.. (Palazzio isn't even CLOSE in flavor, even though the portions are gigantic).

Best Lobster Piccatta in USA
Reviewer: Jose Cadena from San Dimas
We used to go eat there all the time when it was in Westwood, I looked all over for lobster piccatta but none came even close, this is including New York City. you have to try it its the best.
