Come to our House...

In 1872, Captain W.H. Johnson built this house on De La Vina Street in downtown Santa Barbara for his family. It was moved to this site in 1962 to become an antique store for many years. Since 1996, as Stella Mare’s...we call it home.


Stella Mare’s focuses on French Country Bistro cuisine, emphasizing on classic and seasonal dishes paired with French and American wines. We also offer a wide selection of beers as well as handcrafted cocktails from our Full Bar.


French Country Bistro design meets casual Santa Barbara in our historic landmark house on the Bird Refuge... for close to 20 years, Stella Mare's has been known and recognized for hosting Private Dining Events and offers an excellent selection of private dining rooms.


Stella Mare's has been the number 1 destination for private Events in Montecito and Santa Barbara. From intimate events of 10 to fully customized events of 80 to 130, Stella mare's is the ultimate destination for social events such as Wedding receptions, Showers, Rehearsal Dinners, after wedding brunch, baby showers and more as well as Corporate Events.
