Excellent quality steak but ruined by far too much salt on the steak ordered by me and that ordered by my dinner guest in two different types of steak. One could hardly taste the steak through the salt. And my dinner guest was bothered by...More

Outstanding and unique menu and different from any other steak place I've been to. Buffalo steak was superb and cooked to perfection. And wine selection (and recommendation from waiter) was spot on. You won't be disappointed!

Steaks were good but not what one would expect from such a high end establishment. I've had better tasting steak at high end chains like Mortons, Ruth's Chris, Capital Grill, etc. especially for the price point.

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

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..
