Food is very inconsistent and well as the service, due to the owners!!! They are snobs and hot-heads. Witnessed them yell at employees. The Chef Thomas is very rarely around and it is obvious that he uses pre-made items. I have tried to go back a few times just give it a chance. The paella, which is awful and not authentic as well as the osso bucco, clearly not housemade but from a plastic bag. The sea bass is not cooked well at all, they just put sauce on it to try make it better. The people that work there are nice enough but are clearly overworked, the so-called chef and his wife can be seen in the bar whenever they are actually there! Not a place to count on. Thumbs down unless you are a snob then they might try to kiss your A**. When the owners are at the bar drinking, it always makes me wonder what is really happening behind the scenes, ESP when the bartenders are clearly doing the same! Unless you're the Aptos Snobbish-Elite you will not be treated the way you expect for the prices you are paying.
I love Bittersweet. Their food is excellent, their desserts are fantastic, the service has always been at least good, sometimes great, and they have really good cocktails too. I think it's the best restaurant in Santa Cruz area, but lately that's not saying much... Highly recommend Bittersweet!
We dined at the Bittersweet Bistro for the first time the day after Thanksgiving, so it was a good thing we made reservations. The staff was really jumping; at one point, we had 3 servers for our table of five.
The food is very elegant. The Eye had the butterfish with some kind of truffle sauce. For those who don't like to take home a doggy bag, the small plate option is a great choice.
This is a beautiful, high-end restaurant; a great place to take out-of-town guests.
