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

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

As mentioned by others it is an adult restuarant but I have seen children there early in the evening. I would suggest keeping your reservation before 7pm..
