Possibly the best restaraunt in SB. Some of the best food, service, and atmosphere I have ever experienced. I love to go here with friends and order a lemon drop (which comes in a glass and a side mason jar!) and the popcorn crawfish! There ceaser is to die for and the Palace Pasta Royale had my mouth watering. Give it a try and you will be as hooked as I am !
Abita beer and Crawfish tails.
I really enjoyed my dinner at the Palace. Everyone was very nice and really pushed for everyone to have a nice dinner. We tried the fried crawfish tails as an appitizer, and they were great. The menu is more new cajun... meaning I never ate Jambalya pasta at growing up in Louisiana. And they didn't have the required fried main menu items. I would love to see the crawfish tails and shrimp fried that way on the main menu.
I had a cup of the Gumbo Ya Ya, and it was very nice. The reaux was perfect. For my main course I had the Crawfish Crab Cake appetizer which came with a scoop of rice and was perfect because... YOU HAVE TO SAVE ROOM FOR THE BREAD PUDDING! It has to be ordered with your meal but it is Well Worth it.
ALSO, if they give you something to look at when the music starts, Enjoy! That was fun!
Great food, great service, fun drinks. This was one of my favorite meals of all time. My husband and I were recommended to this place and we couldn't have been happier with our meal. We started out with pepper martinis, which sounds gross but were amazing. They give you these assorted mini muffins to start which I could have eaten all night. We got some sort of tasting meal which allowed us to try everything from crawfish to blackened salmon to fried shrimp to crab cakes. I'm not a fan of cajun, but this food was incredible. Our waiter was extremely helpful as well and really funny. At the end of the night, everyone sings together, but we ended up missing that part :( All in all, if you want great food in SB at an adorable restaurant, try The Palace.
Santa Barbara favorite!.
We love this place! You're served five different
kinds of yummy mini-muffins to start, their
pastas are fantastic (we love the crawfish lafitte)
and the bread pudding souffle with whisky cream
sauce is to die for! I feel like driving up right now.
excellent service with great food and atmosphere.. Great place to take the uninitiated for some of santa barbara's finest food and service. The ambiance is unbeatable, upbeat and friendly.
Best of New Orleans. My favorite SB restaurant. Consistent for 20 years. Awesome food and service.
