This restaurant was recommended to us by a local - and it proved to be a great recommendation! The Parmesan Crusted Sole that I ordered was delicious, and my husband was very pleased with his Ahi Tuna.

Stopped here for dinner when I moved into the area and had nothing unpacked. Really liked it and came back about 4 times the first week. Good for lunch and dinner, portions are good-sized and the fish is very good. Especially like the salmon. Shrimp is just so-so but scallop risotto was great. Decent pricing for the portions and type... More

This place has been around for several decades. I recommend the seared ahi and tomato bisque with a puff pastry. Best meal ever.

Really a below average seafood place that has no character whatsoever and does not stand out on any front. My fried calamari was hard and 90% grease. Tuna tartare was very average as well. There are much better places in the area.

Got seated next to a rowdy bunch of locals who were clearly intoxicated. No harm done but didn't get the pleasant experience we were hoping for. Other than that, ordered sea bass, salmon, lobster bisque and pasta from the menu. Sea bass with miso glazing was delicious, salmon's coca cola bbq sauce was bit to the sweet side, bisque was...

I really enjoyed this experience. The restaurant is very well designed, it is very big and crowded so I will suggest it to family and groups. Very tasty fish reasonable price, strongly recommended. Try the tuna sashimi.

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.
