Louie's California Bistro is a must when in Santa Barbara and wanting some great food in a friendly yet elegant atmosphere. Inside the 130-year-old, Victorian Hotel Upham, there are cozy tables and booths or there is an old fashioned porch outsid
Locally owned and operated by Anne Rizzoli and Trey Brooks, both of whom have worked at Louie's for many years prior to becoming the "new" owners a few years ago. Louie's has been open for over twenty years now. It has maintained the very special dining experience with the menu and food staying consistent through the years and has been described as "California comfort food served with an elegant flair". Head Chef Tony Manzanares is going on 20 years at Louie's.
Along with a professional and loyal staff, the food, presentation and service seems effortless. The wine list is well thought-out and eclectic featurings some great Santa Barbara County and Central Coast wines. Included are Napa Valley cabernets as well the hard-to-find wines.... an array of wines that suit every dish we offer.
Anne and Trey have both found that they love the restaurant business and have learned every facet of food and wine service, as well as the finer aspects of customer service, always welcoming you to Louie's with a smile and welcome feel.
Louie's is that "hidden jewel" located in a picturesque, amiable neighborhood, in Santa Barbara, tucked away on the ground floor of the historic Upham Hotel, and walking distance from hip State Street and the theater district that calls it home... a fovorite among locals and tourists alike and has become one of the true destination dining spots in Santa Barbara.
