Ambience and an educated and enthusiastic service staff complete the picture.
bouchon is missing Santa Barbara.

Bouchon Santa Barbara's year-round garden patio, with its warm and inviting ambience, is the perfect place to dine at a leisurely pace and enjoy an authentic regional wine dining experience.

"I created
bouchon to reflect my image of fine dining-the freshest ingredients, prepared with care.  Excellent wines that reflect the quality and character of our region and work in concert with the cuisine.  Warm, inviting ambience, service at a relaxed, leisurely pace.
We source all of our ingredients using an 'as fresh-and-as-local-as-possible' approach, with fish from Santa Barbara Channel, produce from the surrounding countryside and meats and poultry from local micro-ranches.  You'll taste the difference.
We believe that Santa Barbara is producing some of the finest California Chardonnay, Pinot Noire and Syrah.  Other locally produced varietals will surprise you with their quality , variety and approachability.

Welcome to
bouchon! I hope you enjoy discovering our local treasures!"
