We all had something different, Salmon, Swordfish (special) Bouillabaisse, and Steak, everyone loved their meal.
It's a little tight outside, but everyone is friendly, sharing a bottle of tabasco with the table next door is a great way to say hello!

We arrived Sunday 6pm and was promptly told no tables available until 9pm, but we could be placed on a waiting list to sit at the 8 seat counter. Before taking our name for the counter seating, the hostess answers the phone and upon ending her phone conversation, she then seats us at a table.
This is a very small restaurant. Besides the counter seating, there are 14 tables inside where you sit elbow-to-elbow and 6 tables outside. They do not serve liquor, only beer and wine.
We were disappointed by the limited selection of raw oysters; 3 West Coast and 5 Eastern types. We ordered 6 from the West coast and declared California Luna excellent!
I ordered the grilled fish tacos (3) which were street-size tacos. The fish was barely warm and it was served on hybrid flour/corn tortillas. OK but would of been better if the fish was warmer.
Hubby had the crab Louie salad which he said he has had much better.

My friends and I gathered here one afternoon to celebrate a birthday. My friend likes to sample a lot of dishes, so we had crab cakes, salads, a pasta and dessert. Everything was superbly prepared and delicious. Service was very friendly, prompt and consistent. And somehow, it had an all around friendly vibe. I like that the tables are all in a row. It invites conversation. Check it out.

I was there over Memorial Day weekend and made a res for 5:30pm.
The staff is amazing and I was surprised how accommodating they were given the 3 day weekend madness.
The food is GREAT. I had the best Cobb salad with shrimp followed by mussels in a curry sauce (delish). My brother had the chowder (good but not great) and the swordfish... amazing!
It is not the cheapest restaurant but definitely worth the money :)
I loved to sit outside for sunset and feel the breeze in my face it was the perfect finish for a great trip to Santa Monica.

We were in town as Auburn fans for National Championship game. We were so lucky to find this place. Great food and atmosphere. It's a small place but we sat at the bar and loved it! Great fan of the lobster Mac & cheese!
