Visited here a Thursday night during our short stop in Santa Barbara as Lebanese is one of our favourites. It didn't disappoint, great food and service! If we're ever back in town we'll definitely be visiting.

We frequent zaytoon often and each time we do we always have attentive polite staff. The music and atmosphere are lively, fun and romantic. Highly recommended

This is a gem of a place to eat at, the food is excellent, the outside eating area is very pretty, there was a live belly dancer entertaining everyone. Very reasonably priced. Would recommend and visit again.

Tired uninterested staff serving unimaginative fare, old wilted salad. A disappointing experience that I won't repeat.

I would suggest you call and ask them. Although I never saw any dogs there and I have been there several times.
