Reviews by the General Public

Excellent is an understatement
Reviewer: Sabine from Santa Barbara, CA
D'Vine is over the top in quality, service, and selections. Each sandwich is piled high for the price, I usually can only eat one half and save the other half for later...and all the meats, veggies, cheeses are excellent quality! The staff and owner (who is pretty handsome) provide great service, and always make you feel like family. The atmosphere is comfy and funky, and you really get a great deal of food for your cash. Can't beat this place anywhere in town.

comparing to silvergreens -really ??
Reviewer: james from Santa Barbara, CA
ok silvergreens has longer hours . But the comparing stops there .Try a breakfast burito at silvergreen and you will be a de vine dude forever . De vine has specials daily that are very good . Most other deli s do not run specials and their speciality is a little higher price then de vine .I go there most days .VERY RARE do i miss a day . CAN THEY CHANGE UP ON THEIR SHOWCASE items once in a while = sure . run a new one give an old one a break. . But other then that . They have the best staff . And fruit in a market ? = well at a deli or coffee shop is always higher then at a market .NOW i will say i do not like their coffee it tastes like santa barbara roasting company coffee . But the only coffee i like it tea leaf on state st . across from crappy starbucks. Yes it is good to use local but oh my not when the coffee is this crappy . So my only gripes are maybe a different item in the showcase once in a while and the coffee is as bad as canned coffee .

great salads and sammys
Reviewer: Donna from Santa Barbara, CA
I really love this place, has been my fav for years. However they keep making their serving portions smaller in the salads. Why the cut in greens? doesn't make any sense. Container has gone from full to not even half full anymore.

Good Food/Service
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
Good stuff here with overflowing sandwiches. The decor is a little funky with art stuff but the owner wants to show local artist stuff. I am surprised that this place has not branched out ala Panino or South Coast Deli which these sandwiches rival. People are nice here and there does appear to be strong repeat customer business. Silvergreens is a bit different than here but both places are good, Silvergreens has expanded too though so I wonder why this place has not, been there 5+ years.

Rockin' neighborhood cafe. Everything about this place is sweet. I eat here at least twice a day. Their espresso is ground on the spot and they use an old-school, manual espresso machine. You know, the one where you actually have to work the thing, not press buttons. The blueberry muffins are awesome and cooked on site (as are there other pastries/cookies). Lunch is great, price is fair for the quality and quantity of food. The service is great, staff is always friendly, and they bring you your food! Milkshakes: Real Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream...need I say more? Strawberry milkshake made with real strawberries and vanilla ice cream..seriously delicious. Bonus 1: Online ordering ( how cool is this? You point, click, type and BAM show up and it's made! It can get busy, so if you're in a rush, this is perfect! Bonus 2: Parking...they have a parking lot (rarity for downtown) and street parking is abundant. Bonus 3: Attitude...the staff appears genuinely happy, courteous, and wants to help you. The only thing you will not like about D'vine is the fact that they aren't open every hour of every day. Alas, you can't always get what you want (speaking of which, the music selection they play is bodacious too).

Silvergreens!!!!! How Dare You
Reviewer: Michael Jensen from Santa Barbara, CA
I read a review that said take your money down to Silvergreens....I nearly choked on my delicious D'vine sandwich when I saw that. I am not saying that silvergreens makes bad food, but D'vine is a local business with great prices and delicious food ( I recommend the Greek salad). Also, D'vine has the best customer service. I eat a D'vine sandwich almost everyday for lunch and I have never once had a problem or dislike what I got. Lots of meat, good veggies, and again awesome greek salad. Another review commented on the price of their banana's, saying that it was cheaper to go to Trader Joe's....well I will save my choice words for a swearing contents. If you want inexpensive quality produce go to Tri-County Produce Duh!!!!!!

nice location, friendly staff, lousy food
Reviewer: Lexi from Santa Barbara, CA
I used to frequent this restaurant as I love the outdoor dining and I loved their sandwiches. I have been sad to find the past 2 experiences here have been mediocre at best. The first time, I ordered the caprese sandwich, which was very greasy and left me with a stomach ache (not because of the cheese, but they put WAY too much butter on the bread). The last visit, I had the D'Vine wrap, which one would think would be good since they put their name on it. The tortilla was stale and the wrap was basically tasteless. Very disappointing to see the quality decline, as they still have very friendly staff and a great location.

Best Lunch Spot In Santa Barbara
Reviewer: Brian from Santa Barbara, CA
D'vine is simply the best place in town to get lunch or breakfast. Everything on the menu is amazing and you have the choice of creating your own sandwich if you so choose. My personal favorite is the Chicken Melt... TRY IT. The Service is unbeatable too, everyone always has a smile on their face and are happy to be there.

Best burger on the South Coast
Reviewer: Dan Montello from Santa Barbara, CA
A charming, locally owned, and most friendly spot for breakfast or lunch. I swear the burgers are the best you will find at any restaurant or cafe around. Great meat, proper fat content, nice bun, cooked pink if you want it (I do), and choice of cheeses. Get 'er done. If you want big and cheap, go somewhere else.

Reviewer: karen thomas from Goleta, ca
I know econimic times are hard..but.. the food portions have gotten itsy bitsy! A build your own half sandwich is about three bites. And the price has only gotten higher. Take your money and walk a block east to Silvergreens. Check out the banana price $.75 for one. Trader Joes $.19 The only positive - the service.

they always have a good crew working here .
Reviewer: bruce from Santa Barbara, CA
dave is the bomb . i only eat there 6 days a week. as they are closed on sunday. i try other places when i am busy downtown . but it is just the other places food suck.and at a little extra cost too. and the people working there are out to lunch themselves .so i always return to dvine . i only been going there since day one . the service is dvive . the atmosphere is as i would like . as i go and kick back and read my mail and write checks for my bills . or read the news .

What a Wonderful Place
Reviewer: K. W. from Santa Barbara, CA
We order food from D'Vine for our office meetings. Normally when you order in bulk, the food tends to be small with less attention to detail. This is definately not the case with D'Vine! They have great sandwiches and our orders are always made on time. If you are looking to cater your office meetings, D'Vine is your spot!!!
