Ocean and Vine at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel
AwesomeBest experience I have had in a while. The food was absolutely tasty and our server Jason was very friendly and made sure we were all taken care of.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe portions were very largeThe portions were very large and the appetizers were delicious! Muscles and smoked salmon were the best. The main entree of sea bass was good, but over cooked, leaving the fish on the tough side.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgreatwaitress was incredible
my family were very happy6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMResponsibilityI had ordered a tenderloin of beef medium rare & it came well done. The waitress asked us how everything was when we were served, which at that time was great, but she did not come back till the end of the meal. I did not eat my steak, but had a portion of my husband's reeb eye steak, which was delicious & cooked just right.
the waitress & manager of the restaurant, came after dinner, telling us that the bottle of wine we had, was on the house. I thought this was very well handled & because of this, I would definetely go back, & recommend it.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dinner. Added touch,Nice dinner. Added touch, waiter brought a dessert with a candle to celebrate our anniversary.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA good dining experience butA good dining experience but not great. They have outstanding views of the ocean. I think they're outstanding location allows the food side to be less then the highest quality. They allowed to many people not staying at the hotel to come to the pool and hang out for the day. Those who are paying the high fees for the hotel room have to fight to get a poolside chair.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBright spotAlthough the hotel here is very overpriced and not that great, the restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was very good and the service attentive. I was disappointed with the view. I picked it to see the ocean but there is very little view of the ocean. Instead you look at the back of what looks like their power plant or something.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service. Very NiceExcellent Service. Very Nice Place. Would recommend it to Friends.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for my son'sWe were there for my son's 25th birthday. They had a delicious chocolate cake for him. Food was tasty. We all had a good time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food presented beautifullDelicious food presented beautifully. We had a 5pm reservation which we thought was for dinner. Turns out they don't open until 6pm.
They did accommodate us however and were gracious. The setting is beautiful right on the beach.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMstandard SM hotel foodOur server (monique) wasn't too friendly. Maybe it's because I didn't go for the drink she suggested (I can't drink tequila and she suggested a spicy margarita) and we ordered two apps (a flatbread in addition to a malibu platter), but changed our minds after a few seconds and decided to just order the platter without the flatbread and I guess these things ticked her off because she didn't come to us again except to ask if we wanted dessert and coffee.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt would have been great ifIt would have been great if we weren't seated next to a table with 6 small loud children.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCould have been a lot better.Haven't been to Loew's for a long time. The views are incredible! We both had the $49 buffet. Even though they scrambled to get us fresh Eggs Benedict because they felt what was in the warmers wasn't edible, they were lukewarm when we received them. We kept discussing how the kitchen must be in another building from where the dining room was, because - no joke - we'd ask for water, and wouldn't see our waiter again for 15 minutes. We'd ask for champagne - same thing. Then it took a long time to get our check. I'm glad we chose the buffet, as at least that way we could get our food when we wanted it. Sorry, but there was A LOT of lag time between visits to our table. We don't know what the problem was.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
