Came here for dinner, and ordered the scallops to start, the whole grilled Dorado, and the poached pear for dessert.The scallops were fresh, tasty and tender, and the other items on the plate paired well with the flavours. The scallops could have been seared better, is the only thing I would change about the dish.The fish was supposed to be boneless, but I spent half the time pulling bones out of my mouth. While being told it would be deboned, after it arrived and I got 3 bones, I was told there would still be some near the head and tail, but there were still some more through the middle. The grilling could have also been done at a higher temperature, as missed a smoky grilled flavour, or crispy skin on the fish. The flavour was also pretty lack-luster, and the butter that came with it didn't add much. We were also told we wouldn't need sides with something like the fish, but the portion wasn't large enough in the end to not need a side. For $36, this dish was a pretty big disappointment, and since the server talked this dish up as one of the best on the menu, this is the main reason for my 3 star rating. I would rate this dish even lower, but the starter & dessert brought the meal back up to a 3. The dessert took over an hour to come out. However, the manager came out and apologized, and comped the desserts to make up for it. The pear was quite good, and the other components were well prepared and complemented the flavour of the pear well.Overall, I found the main course really disappointing, and for the price, overall the meal and portions weren't spectacular. The service was quite good, but overall feels hard to justify the prices on the menu to me, and I probably wouldn't return.

There's a lot of hype surrounding this upscale eatery, but it's not warranted. Food looks creative, but is mediocre, pairing unusual flavours that don't work well together. Prices are high for what you get, though that's more the norm than an exception for the area. Ambiance doesn't help: it feels like a suburban chain restaurant, rather than feeling authentic, or a celebration of Ivan Reitman's work. Service was competent, but devoid of friendliness. It's good to experience once, but there's no reason to return.

We really had an enjoyable evening, the staff were friendly and very nice and the whole experience from the start to the end was very nice . Super knowledgeable and very amenable to some of the allergies we have. The food was flawless but again, this is not food in the sense of getting stuffed. I felt more comfortable here than any other fine dining place.

Great locally sourced menu. Lovely decor. If possible get the corner rounded seats on main floor for a cozy setting. One more thing... Ask ahead about parking offers -- this is the icing on the cake

Good food and great service. They don't have much vegetarian options on the menu, keep that in mind when you visit this restaurant. We tried all their flatbreads - They were all good (not great, but good). Not a bad place if you are looking for a table on a Friday evening. It was not busy when we went and the service was quick (read - lightening quick).

We were honoured when Montecito asked us to perform for New Years Eve 2018. It is a beautiful space with excellent food and a wonderful team. We're looking forward to coming back to play for Mother's Day Brunch!
