The Lark

In Santa Barbara and looking for some New American food? Go to The Lark!


They give you complimentary seasoned popcorn to have while you wait for your meal (pictured on the lower left). They have an assortment of beer, wine, and cocktails you could choose from.


Strawberry Beet Salad

The portion looks small but there are actually a lot of beets hiding under everything!


Charcuterie Board (1/2 order)

Their charcuterie board is my favorite from their menu because they don’t skimp on the meat (might I add that this is only a half order?).

Spanish Octopus Salad

Spanish Octopus Salad

The octopus was really tender, but I wish they had given more of it because the ratio of octopus to vegetables was 1:5 (le sigh). Also, they over-seasoned the sauce, so there were too many things going on with the sweetness and saltiness.

Pomegranate Pork Chop

Pomegranate Pork Chop

The pork chop was quite tender too, but again, the sauce was too strong. The sauces for the octopus and the pork chop actually tasted very similar! Maybe they were even the same??

Here are pictures from another day we went.


Heirloom Tomato Salad

We usually get the strawberry beet salad, but on this day, we decided to try something new and went with the heirloom tomato salad. It was good, but there was nothing special about it. We both agreed that the beet salad is much better!


Charcuterie Board (1/2 order)

We just can’t stay away from charcuterie!


Scallop Crudo

The Lark tends to overseason some of their sauces, but they use high quality ingredients and know how to prepare them well. And because of its ambiance, it’s a wonderful place to go to for a date or for a girls’ night out. In my opinion, it’s one of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara!
