The most dull meal and menu as well. When finished I thought that the waiter forgot about me at all. Unreasonably expensive for a such 'nothing' meal..

First time dining at this venue. Love the decor and architecture. Friendly staff awesome food! Love the fact that it's a seasonal menu so everything's always fresh. Good place to have a friendly conversation and get a bite to eat.

I am amazed that these folks can pull it off -- a super busy Saturday night and a sardined bar scene, yet they managed to get our quickie before show dinner ready in a flash and it was over the top delicious. We got (and loved) the cauliflower fried "rice" with sirachi, the asparagus with some kind of scrumptious red... More

This restaurant is just off of Ocean Drive, so convenient stop when visiting the Pier. It has a great ambiance; views from the second floor down into the restaurant were a nice feature. The service was exceptional. Signature drinks were delicious and the Brussel sprouts appie is a must!

Tuna tataki, mac n cheese, rice bowl... everything was delicious. servie was attentive and prompt and virtually invisible, meaning they were constantly there, but you didn;t notice when your glass was refilled or your empty plate disappeared.

Fun menu with many options depending on your preferences. I went for something simple and had an excellent burger with a fried egg and my wife had some wonderful scallops. Also want to shout out to Bonnie M who made our experience even more enjoyable.

After trying to get a reservation for two nights previously we were so pleased to get a table here on our final night while staying in Santa Monica on our honeymoon from the UK. Enjoyed a cocktail at the trendy, but crowded bar. Fantastic quirky menu - can't believe I am recommending the sprouts! We also had lovely buttermilk chicken.... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
