Terrible service, Better than average food
Reviewer: Dundee in the house from Santa Barbara, CA
Been going to Seven since it opened, even played there a couple of times. Since the main owner, who was a bro (always welcoming, attentive, treated the locals with respect and privlige) but sadly passed away last year. Allthough the food is better than average, their service is down right atrocious!! Noticeably were two of the bartenders and recent night manager!! The un in engaging bartenders are totally unprofessional, generally slow to act (like that could care less), to much talking amongst the staff, to slow figuring out the registers all the time, lack of menu specifics and food items, rare eye contact, and at times borderline rude... No care ='s 1 star pain staking service ;/

Attention to Detail!!

I rarely write reviews, but after my experience at Seven I feel the staff there deserves a shout out! Everyone from the doorman, to the bartenders, to the bussboy were friendly and welcoming. Service was great and the place was spotless!! Unlike several other bars around town, tables were bussed immediately upon being vacated, the bathrooms were clean, the glasses were actually cleaned and the food was fresh. And the cocktails were epic!! I will definitely be returning.

The service was the best thing about this place, and even that was just above mediocre. I went with a group of friends on a weeknight and it was very slow in there. The server was so interested in talking to the bartender that he barely attended to us. We waited nearly 20 minutes to order. He did come back several times after we ordered, but seemed really distracted most of the time. Since it was right before Christmas, it was quiet and there was no reason for such apathetic service. The food was okay. Some of my group loved their stuff but others had issues. One dish was sent back because the chicken was cold AND pink in the middle. Personally, my salad was okay, but nothing to write home about. I don't think I'd be motivated to go back.

Just sayin'

Was looking forward to trying out Seven but could not get the time of hostess, no server, no eye contact. We ended up having great local sea bass at the Fish House.

Great food and excellent server
Reviewer: Allan from Santa Barbara, CA
Found this place with no name in front. Chicken & waffle was excellent Burger and Reubems were also very good. Shay our server was outstanding. We will go again.

Good Sliders
