Arigato has truely amazing food. Our best meal in the US and we had many great meals. The service and atmospere are first class without being stuffy.We arrived at 5:20 pm for dinner and there was a queue forming so get there early or be prepared to wait. All the food was great but the stand out was the blue fin tuna carpaccio which was out of this world. Most of the blue fin tuna comes from Australia but really hard to get as most is exported so we had to have it. Was expensive but what the heck. You only live once. Go here.

Clearly the best sushi in town. All the standard things with a few creative extras. Can get very crowded at times. Priced to reflect its position in the market (highest) and the town it’s in (expensive). Go if you can afford it.

a great and extremely fresh sushi place with an extensive menu (hard to choose...), right on State street, where everything is happening in Santa Barbara

Pros: wonderful food and amazing service. We went there twice with kids and they fixed us a table in no time. Even offered a storage for the stroller. And they have miso with mushrooms!!
My personal recommendation - magic mushroom rolls.
Cons: Closed during lunch.
Avarage bill for 4 people 60$ and worth every penny:)

We were so lucky! Got seated at the sushi bar without having to wait! Kevin was our sushi chef and so entertaining to watch as he prepared our delicious food. The fish was all fresh but I have to say my favorite dish was the shitake and truffle sushi! Place was packed and ambiance was fun and lively. Will definitely return for more sushi next time I am in SB!
