4 of us had a variety of dishes. Really wanted to like this place but it was a bit underwhelming. Veggie burger was not tasty. Scallops were good. Chicken sandwich was just OK. Salted chocolate chip cookies were the best.

One of the best spots in santa monica for cocktails, especially during their generous happy hour. The French dip sandwich also worth recommendation. Service professional and friendly, in particular the bartenders.

Scrumptious soup and salad option consisted of a smooth and creamy asparagus soup along side a brussel sprout salad with cheese and dried fruits and nuts. Presentation was delightful and the amount of food was just right. OMG! Yummy! Staff was nice, prompt, and pleasant. All around a first rate experience. I sat outside but the interior looks really cool... More

Incredible food - great service. Came for brunch. Fav dishes: avocado toast, crispy chicken sandwich, French omelet. Servers friendly and efficient, especially Laura and Carolina. Ate in 10 restaurants in southern CA and this is by far my favorite.

I love this place! The food is creative and delicious. The service is so friendly and professional. My servers, Carolina and Laura took such good care of us. I felt right at home. My favorite dishes were crispy chicken sandwich and French pancakes. My favorite drink is Festival de last Flores. You should try it!

The most dull meal and menu as well. When finished I thought that the waiter forgot about me at all. Unreasonably expensive for a such 'nothing' meal..

First time dining at this venue. Love the decor and architecture. Friendly staff awesome food! Love the fact that it's a seasonal menu so everything's always fresh. Good place to have a friendly conversation and get a bite to eat.

I am amazed that these folks can pull it off -- a super busy Saturday night and a sardined bar scene, yet they managed to get our quickie before show dinner ready in a flash and it was over the top delicious. We got (and loved) the cauliflower fried "rice" with sirachi, the asparagus with some kind of scrumptious red... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
