About this place
The Lark pays homage to the history of California train travel and tributes the treasured and long gone Santa Barbara Fish Market, built in the 1920’s as a commercial fish processing plant, shipping their seafood products throughout the state by rail. With an imaginative yet approachable menu created by the gifted Jason Paluska, The Lark celebrates everything found around Santa Barbara County – wineries, farms, ocean and natural beauty. The stunning design strives to connect to the past and the future, using discovered objects from the past and blending them with modern, urban and industrial materials to spectacular effect.

Located in the Funk Zone near the beach, this a great local and visitor favorite. Plenty of outdoor seating and near all the tasting rooms, this makes a great place for a very nice dinner. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. You'll need reservations!

A delicious place to dine! Urbane eatery in a former fish market offers New American fare in wood-lined quarters with a patio.
