Amazing drinks, atmosphere, and most especially... FOOD! We were luckily able to meet chef Al who was behind the bar last night and he treated us to one of the most decadent and intimate dining experiences ever. I highly recommend Date with a Pig, the Lamborghini Sliders, and the baked brie dish called Som"brie"sas. Spanish coffee for desert was on fire!! Literally :)

I often meet friends here for a glass of wine of fancier drink and some appetizers. The wait staff is friendly, and the food is surprisingly innovative and good.

It's not very often one can find a "hip" restaurant in Santa Barbara, but Alcazar fits the mold. Located on the Mesa--which is on the other side of town from the Funk Zone--Alcazar is a small place in a storefront on Cliff Drive. Don't be fooled by the location. The food is excellent. The bar is small but serves many wonderful cocktails. The vibe is definitely young and upbeat. Try the chicken tacos.

My partner & I very much enjoyed our dinner here. We had 4 plates between us - a goats cheese, rocket & beetroot salad, chicken quesadillas, the sweet potato fries (I think everyone in the restaurant had a bowl of these) and the very yummy date with a pig (dates wrapped in smoked bacon with blue cheese & honey). Desserts weren't quite as good as the main. The service was friendly and efficient with the food arriving very quickly.

Al has done it again, another fanstic restaurant. Similar menu to Milk & Honey but different enough. The vibe is a little bit differnt and still welcoming. Great little hidden gem on the Mesa. It is nice that we have spots like this up here. The service is usually good and the food is always great!
