About Wine Cask

Wine Cask is a locally owned, multi-faceted restaurant with an iconic reputation as Santa Barbara’s culinary and wine landmark. It’s food and wine central for aficionados; a full sensory experience from the historic setting the restaurant occupies to the innovative cuisine balanced with the warmth of personal service. Wine Cask Chefs shop at the farmer’s market every week and feature local seafood, produce and wines in support of Santa Barbara industry. Repositioned and reinvented to meet the modern-diner movement, the Wine Cask concept consists of several elegant spaces, all offering a different ambiance and experience. The ‘Gold Room,’ our main dining room, offers an up-scale yet approachable lunch and dinner experience famous for its majestic oversized fireplace and its historic vaulted wood beam ceiling adorned with gold leaf. The ‘Margerum Wine Tasting Room’ is branded after the original and now current co- owner and wine maker, offering a dual use space as a tasting room and event venue. ‘The Riviera Room’ is a private banquet/dining room that is sophisticated in nature with the ability to accommodate mid-sized events or groups. Intermezzo is the colloquial ‘bar/café’ of Wine Cask, a favorite after work and evening haunt for locals and a comfortable, quaint place to sit by the fireplace and enjoy fine wines and flat breads with friends before a show. Lastly, the courtyard between the Gold Room and Intermezzo, delicately draped with whimsical, retractable sails high above the space, offers an al fresco experience. We are delighted to provide the same exceptional cuisine and service for private and group dining that you would expect as a table for two.

    Beautiful Venue

    The Wine Cask is a beautiful venue with Mediterranean courtyard, the tasting room, and the restaurant. The courtyard was beautifully decorated for our wedding with white linens, beautiful fresh flowers, and candles. The food was amazing and the wine selection was phenomenal. Lindsay helped us with all the preparations and David helped with the wine selections. We only has six weeks to plan and prepare for the wedding and with Lindsay's help we accomplished in six weeks what most people take a year to plan and prepare for. Our guests truly enjoyed themselves. Plus the price tag didn't break the bank! Yet, everything was 1st class!

    Absolutely Perfect

    We had our ceremony at the Courthouse and were looking for nearby restaurants to host our reception when we stumbled across Wine Cask...and I'm so happy we did! From the very beginning they were so responsive to my emails and almost always got back to me within a day which was so appreciated during stressful wedding planning! Lindsay, the event manager, was especially helpful and was always willing to hop on a phone call with us! Our guest count kept changing and they were very accommodating with the changes. When the weekend came, Wine Cask let us drop off all our personal items and decor the day before and they set it up perfectly! We got so many compliments from our guests on how perfect this venue was! The food was also amazing and the staff working that evening was so on top of everything! I would 100 percent recommend Wine Cask to anyone looking for a reception venue, they were a big part in making our day so special!

    Beautiful venue, delicious food, amazing staff!

    This is a great venue! We had our wedding reception in the courtyard and dancing/cocktail hour in the tasting room for about 60 guests. The food was amazing, and I received many compliments from the guests throughout the night. The staff is very friendly, professional, and accommodating. They made sure my husband and I sat down and ate dinner, and kept our wine glasses full. After the DJ left for the night, the bartenders took over and kept playing music for our guests that were still there. We were able to drop off our decorations the day before our wedding and picked up everything the day after, and they set up everything! I didn't have to worry about anything. They are very organized and respond to your questions in a timely matter. I would highly recommend this place! Thank you again to Lindsay, Sarah, Jenny, Dave, and the entire staff and the Wine Cask for an amazing and memorable night@
