There are few 'excellent' restaurants in Santa Monica. The Water Grill stands out for 3 reasons - excellent food, great location on Ocean Ave with sunset views and a stylish interior. Yes, this is a fairly large restaurant so it can be a little noisy and busy but this has never affected either the standard of food served or the service itself. The menu has regular specials and very seasonal fish choices. We choose to sit at the back of the restaurant along side the glassed in kitchen where we can choose to see the action going on in there or look out to the rest of the restaurant. The prime tables are towards the front of the restaurant where you can be seated alongside huge window that open up to views of the Ocean. Word if warning - yes the sunset can be amazing but it can also shine directly into your eyes over a 30 minute period as it starts to set!
