Used TripAdvisor ratings to choose this restaurant. Once again fellow travelers know best. The food was excellent and service great! The lobster bisque was one of the best I ever had . The portions was generous and served hot. I hate food left under warming lamps. We had fried strawberries for dessert What a treat! It was my favorite meal... More

The service was good. The place felt more like a chain bar. The food was not good! We were 5 people who love food and were looking forward to eating fresh fish close to the ocean. Even though the fish itself might have started as good quality, the cooking and presentation were below par. The worst Caesar salad....almost all bread.... More

I love the Dover sole at this restaurant. I go there every time I visit Santa Monica just for that dish. It's always done perfectly. It's a large and bustling restaurant and the waitstaff is always friendly and professional. Parking is sometimes an issue.

We had an early dinner here on our way down the coast. The food was good to very good, but not excellent, especially for the price. Portion sizes were average. There was no indication of whether items were gluten free, and I ordered the strawberries for dessert not knowing that they are battered before being fried (the menu made no... More

Excellent food! But the drink selction seemed minimum. I asked for more of a girly drink and the waiter brought me something not on the menu so that was appreciated. My husbands martini was on the strong side. The food was awesome!

They have happy hour every day from 4pm to 6pm. I highly recommend it. The shrimp tacos were really good, and also the calamari.

Love coming here for happy hour. Oysters are delicious and other food and drink deals are reasonably priced. Also love their lobster special on Monday and Tuesday nights. They did change their menu recently. You don't quite get as much as you used to (most meals included sides), but it's still a good value.

Our waiter started out with a touch of Attitude but managed to recover as the evening progressed. Overall, it's a nice place and the food is good. Note: They are inflexible about substitutions, which people with allergies or serious food preferences should be aware of - they will delete things that are listed with your dish but will not add...

The food is delicious and service great. It is a little pricey for the value. So this is definitely a splurge. I had the sole. I ate it and wanted to lick the plate. My husband got cioppino. I kept putting my bread in his bowl...thank goodness he is a patient man.... out of this world.

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.
