A Little Disappointing

We came here for breakfast to celebrate two of our daughters birthdays. It took us forever to get seated and went way beyond the estimate wait time. The food was pretty average fare and service was stilted and slow. Very disappointing for what should have been a top caliber morning.

I'm in love with the fish tacos here. So much that I ate them for three meals of my short stay. My husband surprised me with ordering the caesar salad and he hasn't stopped referring to how good it was and he will never find one better.

We had breakfast here and it was fabulous. Thank you to James who looked after us. Try the ricotta pancakes - delicious. We will be back.

Average at best. Limp salad. Pleasant service but at times forgetful. Used to be much nicer. Expensive so should be better

We love Shutters as a hotel and so we had high hopes for this 'casual dining' restaurant. And it was OK, yet it left us feeling let down, not least as 'OK' simply isn't good enough at the prices they charge here. Service was good in a slightly mechanical sort of way and the food was tasty enough but lukewarm... More

I simply loved this restaurant. The service was outstanding. The menu items were varied and well prepared to meet the palette of anyone entering this place. The cheeseburger was delicious. Desserts too die for. You must get their brownie and ice cream. You will thank me that you did. I cannot wait to return again.

We ate here three times and all occasions the service was average at best. No fresh juices, only one female toilet with a long wait to access it, no kids menu and a menu that lacks originality. On the up side, the food was good!

Staying at shutters, breakfast was very good. After mentioning that we were in a rush to meet out your guide, the breakfast came out straight away with fresh Orange juice and a great cup of hot coffee. Well done.

We had breakfast here when we were guests of the hotel. The service was outstanding, and the food was excellent. There were healthy choices to enjoy. It was nice to watch people walking and running along the ocean as we dined.

Stayed at Shutters for a few days and found ourselves going back to Coast for meals. The food was great, the view was great, the service and manager were both helpful and attentive without being overbearing. Would highly recommend.

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.
