Loved the location, the food was pretty awesome but damn, it was pricey! The sides were delectable. Took them home. Even a nice roasted chicken was somehow delectable. Across from beach you can see the sun come down over Santa Monica Blvd....

This is our second visit. The last was 5 years ago and I must say the service and the quality of our food and wine remains really high. I thoroughly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

I have been here at the beginning of May for a business dinner. I ordered the very expensive "40 Day Dry Aged New York Strip" (more than 50 $). I asked for a medium to well done steak but it arrived carbonized. I tried to...More

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

As mentioned by others it is an adult restuarant but I have seen children there early in the evening. I would suggest keeping your reservation before 7pm..
