Lovely views of the beach/ocean. Food is good, if not pricey, and the outdoor area is a great spot to watch the sun go down.

We had the special Christmas 3 course dinner menu which I must say was some of the best food I've ever had and I am quite a critic on food. We had a party of 8 and were seated in a corner on a large round table which was fantastic to include everyone in the conversation as well as providing... More

Had a 9:00 pm reservation for dinner with out of town guests we had just picked up at the airport.When we arrived at 8:45 pm they were already breaking down for 10:00 pm closing. The entire dessert display was gone, bar was being cleaned and they were starting to mop the floors. Not only did we feel unwelcome, it made... More

We went to Coast Beach cafe twice during our stay - the first time for lunch and then returned the net day since it was so good for Brunch! Each time we were greeted warmly by the hostess and brought to our table. The waiters were soo nice and gave great recommendations. We loved the guacomole and chips, the lemon... More

Delicious food! Location cannot be beat! Friendly servers treat you like you are the most important person there! Very busy casual dining restaurant on Santa Monica beachfront, near pier. A must-do when in Santa Monica!

This is a great place for breakfast lunch or dinner. I highly recommend the eggs Benedict and a mimosa. A great way to start the day!

This is not the place you would expect to spend almost three hours for dinner...but we did. The food was good and I would recommend the tortilla soup and the fish. But we ultimately passed on dessert because we ready to go. Perhaps they were understaffed the night we were there but its hard to get past the long wait.... More

Been here for brunch & breakfast only. It is a great casual place attached to a 5 star hotel. You can go in with shorts...etc and feel at home. Nothing beats the casual ambiance with money all around you. Great place for family to chill and overlook the ocean & beach.

Beautiful yet casual restaurant in Shutters on the Beach. The Lemon Ricotta Pancakes were fluffy and delicious! Service was great and friendly. Semi-outdoor seating available on the patio, but great natural light fills the main dining area through large windows. Fun to watch pedestrians walk by on the paths while you eat. On the pricey side but to be expected... More
