  • The Santa Barbara Public Market has potential, but never seems to hit the mark. I wouldn't rule it out because it keeps trying new things to draw you in. This indoor market place is contemporary and h...  more »

  • We've been enjoying the myriad establishments, most especially I'A and Empty Bowls. We eagerly awaited the opening of The Garden of which we have mixed reviews. The beer selection is amazing! Food, not so much. The worst part is that they don't allow any food from other vendors even if someone in your party is ordering from their menu. (This just pissed us off, so we went elsewhere.) Also, when the bar is full the noise level makes being anywhere in the Market uncomfortable. We walked in the other night for dinner and walked right out because the noise level was painful!
  • Came here for the Enjoy Cupcakes! But really like all the other stores that are here. Parking is pretty easy to get, and overall a nice clean place with many different stores in close proximity.
  • The location is a block out from State St. You have to Yelp or Google it to find it if you are not a local. There are a half dozen or so walk up restaurants inside, with AC and clean bathrooms. Seating is at a premium in the popular restaurants. Very popular places like cucina corazon have long lines, but is worth the wait. No parking dedicated to this place.
  • Great location with something for everyone when it comes to finding something to eat. It would be nice if there was more public seating to enjoy trying something from multiple locations. Cucina Corazon is a must when you go.
  • Half of the little boutique stands/restaurants are closed at any given point. The space is large and inviting but the rent is obviously too high as few places are surviving. Good wine bar and ice cream and noodles, everything else was usually (very) overpriced for what it was (probably why they went out of business!). If they can get some more shops in here on a more permanent basis it'll be great, for now, I would stay on State Street.
