This weekend, I invited a friend to dinner at the Wine Cask in Santa Barbara. The service was impeccable. Our wiatress was efficient, non-obtrusive and always nearby. The food itself was well prepared and tasty,though the portions were rather small. I figure, if you're paying between $30-40 per entree, they should at least give you a little more actual food.
I had the cod with miso sauce which was served on a bed of green beans. My date had the wild salmon which came with rice. For dessert we shared a goat's cheese cheesecake, with honey,ginger and rasberry sauce. Ultimately, with two glasses of wine and cappucino ,the bill came to $120. With tip, the total bill came to $144. It worth eating here to sample the food, but I must say that I've had much better meals at half the price at many other restaurants. I still prefer my local Thai place by far over this extravagant, but pricey excursion.
