Great food, great service. It has a fun atmosphere as the football game was on at the time. We had the prime rib, which was thick and awesome. The sushi was a work of art and delicious too. We were referred to this restaurant by one of the stores in the 3rd street Promenade. The location is near the Pier... More

Mixed views on our experience. The food was top notch. Great sushi and the crab cakes were delish! But don't go here if you want a relaxing evening to chill out and enjoy the moment. We felt like we were being rushed out the door which given the amount of people waiting at the door you kind of understand but... More

We went as a family to this restaurant for lunch. The burgers were the best we ever had. Juicy sweet and substantial.The prime rib beef rolled delicious. The service was also wonderful. This is now our fave eatery in LA.

The hawaiian steak was excellent and the portion generous. It was my first time trying a kale salad and this was the place to do it. It was really really good and I am now hooked.

A safe bet in the very touristy area of Santa Monica. A mix of locals and international tourists, it is always very crowded. The food is good and fresh.

A rather simply menu in a nice location. No reservations so bring patience with you. By and large a burger and upscale grill with nice service but too expensive for the fare and absurd alcohol prices.

This reminds me of eating in Manhattan NY. Fast past, high end food for lunch. The Good: Very Nice Staff Great Location Clean Good Food. The Bad: A little to loud for me. Hard to talk.
