Do not waste time having breakfast in this restaurant, it is over priced, under staffed and the food is mediocre.

This last Thanksgiving we decided to have a get-away close to home and stayed at the JW Marriott in Santa Monica. I booked Thanksgiving dinner in Cezanne, which is on the hotel property. I can truly say that it was a total delight from start to finish. The atmosphere was very nice, the service attentive, the menu excellent, and the... More

Cezanne was disappointment. The food was ok. The ambiance is all right. The Hotel advertises " Ocean view" -yet interestingly enough there lies a gigantic building between it and the Ocean! False advertisement. It felt like they mock clients. Pass.

This review is only for breakfast. The service at this restaurant was terrible! The staff is very rude,and they tried to pass off cheap bottled orange juice as fresh squeezed. Very lame! Service is painfully slow. The food itself was very good,so it's a shame that the awful service will prevent me from returning.

We only ate breakfast there, but everything we had was great. Waiter, bus boys hostess were all superior. New manager can make a huge difference.

I had breakfast in this restaurant while staying in the JW Marriott Merigot in Santa Monica. The food was excellent and service was also very good. This hotel definitely has an upper scale feel, as does the restaurant. Pleasantly surprised with the quality of hotel food in this restaurant!

Excellent service and food both nights we dined here. We were celebrating our anniversary the first night and I had the pork chop while my wife had the lamb. We both started with appetizers she the tortilla soup and i the crab cake. They were presented beautifully and tasted exceptional. The service was very attentive without being overbearing.

service is very good, food was ok. I'm sure there are other great restaurants but this was convenient for dinner 2 out of 3 nights. I preferred to walk the boardwalk or go to promenade for my morning walk and find breakfast. Coffee is available in lobby.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
