Sorry, I forgot to put question marks in my original post.
My sister and her family (2 boys: 6 & 3 yrs old) are meeting my mother in Santa Barbara in early April to celebrate mom's 70th birthday. I'm looking for a good, moderately priced restaurant that is kid friendly. My husband and I live in San Francisco, and are the only foodies in the group, so we might have to make a bit of a sacrifice in order to please the kids. Any recommendations would be appreciated. In terms of cuisine, seafood/Calfornia/mediteranean are all possibilities, plus we're open to other good choices.
