Diner Reviews
  • "CAme for an early lunch - 11.30am so caught the tail end of the breakfast trade. Our waitress quickly brought water and menus but there was a short delay until the kitchen switched up to lunch. I had very juicy fish tacos served with little pots of guacamole, Mexican potted cheese and salsa. VEry delicious but messy. My friend was very happy with the cobb salad. A pleasant place to sit and chat."

  • "I like Sunset & Vine restaurant at Loews Hotel a lot. Waffles are great. The waitress did an excellent job. (Note that the Sunday brunch buffet runs longer, but if you just want a light breakfast, get there before 11:30.)"

  • "The food and beach view was a WIN! Service was a little slow, there was only one other table in the entire restuarant other then us so that's why I couldn't believe the service was slow. With that said the ambience and food made up for it."

  • "A table with a view of Santa Monica pier and also in the shade. attentive waiters and a diverse menu. I had a delicious Cobb salad and my companion had a sHort rib pizza which she said was amazing. we looked at the dessert menu but the choices were a little heavy for lunch - something fruity would have been nice Instead of cheesecake and brownie concoctions. Would happily return for another meal here."

  • "My date and I decided last minute to grab a bite here and were very pleased with the romantic atmosphere. They gave us a table next to the fire pit. We each had a wonderful salad that included fruit and goat cheese and then split their short rib pizza which was very tasty. We moved out to the pool area which had a fabulous view of the Santa Monica pier and sat in lovely, cozy chairs."

  • "We tried it with a Blackboard Eats coupon -- never heard of the place, but a good location before our concert. The location is obscure - not even a sign in front of the hotel. Lovely view from the outdoor tables, excellent food and service. They accommodated gluten free diners and a vegetarian with aplomb. Very impressed - we will return."

  • "I booked the reservation and when we arrived, the regretted to tell us the restaurant was closed on Monday. This was an important business meeting and I was quite embarrassed. They could not accommodate us at all. We ate in the bar, which was casual, noisy, and instead of a more sophist end environment, there were beach-goers with paraphernalia lying all around the tables or couches. The service was extremely slow. This is a lovely hotel, but I would not go again."

  • "We ate there once before as a large dinner party of 17 and were not impressed with the food though we had a very good time and were treated very nicely. My wife and I returned just the two of us at 8:30 on a Tuesday night for dinner. The place was almost empty. The wine prices are outrageous and uncalled for. However, the pepperoni/chorizo pizza was just fine and the big surprise was the fabulous cauliflower/cheese soup with a little toasted sheese sandwich and the seafood fava bean "chili". My wife did not enjoy her salmon and they took it off the bill which was very nice of them. I took my leftovers home and enjoyed it just the same the next night. Would definitely come back."

  • "I went to ocean & vine for dinner to celebrate my brothers bday. We ordered some apps (calamari, SM Chili, surf n turf roll) and each one was delicious. We then ordered some drinks and entrees (I got the beef tenderloin, it was superb!). We had some cocktails and they were also tasty! We finished off with dessert ( which was an assortment of mini desserts, all great) we sat on the patio although it was a little chilly the staff made all accommodations to keep us warm ( moved us, and offered blankets). Overall service was great they were very attentive and checked in on us as needed. I would definitely go back and recommend this place! Request Melissa! She's swesome! "

  • "My family and I were staying at the hotel and thus trapped to some degree. We thought we'd get ahead of the game by calling in advance to clear our Celiac daughter's dietary needs which aren't uncommon or severe (Gluten-free, period). Our server was nice but utterly clueless. She promised to check with the kitchen about specific items we could offer her. She never responded so we ordered carefully. No gluten issues but the food itself was beyond horrible. Crab cakes were horrific -- the cheapest shredded mulch, zero lump. Unseasoned. Both risotti were cooked to death and utterly flavorless. Unseasoned again. Steelhead unseasoned. Shrimp were so old and faded we spat them out. Too many other things to mention in so little space."

  • "Our daughter and I took my wife to Ocean and Vine for a Sunday brunch on her birthday...we ordered off the menu (the brunch buffet didn't strike us as a good deal) and had terrific food with exceptional service. Prices weren't unreasonable. We look forward to going back, they took great care of us."

  • "Brunch was pricey. You need regular bacon and pork sausage. You also need regular Eggs Benedict in addition to the Crab Benedict. The short ribs had way too much sauce which ruined the flavor, Toaster was really slow ... eggs got cold waiting for toast to toast. Omelets, waffles and French Toast were great. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Positives: Went here for a nice Memorial day breakfast and it was delicious. The eggs Benedict were amazing and the potatoes that come with it are delicious. The negatives: There was really loud construction going on down on the street below and could barely hear eachother talk. The waiter wasn't very knowledgeable, and they only had orange juice loaded with pulp which I hate. Overall very nice. "

  • "The restaurant wasn't busy, but it took a very long time for the waitress to take our order. And then when it came time to pay the check, our bill was sitting with our credit card on the table for 30 minutes without anybody picking it up. I had to go up to the front desk to give them our check and credit card, and then it still took 10 minutes after that for them to bring the credit card receipt to our table."

  • "We had lunch on the patio and loved the beautful view we had of Santa Monica Beach and the Ocean. The service may not be all that speedy, but otherwise really great and friendly; and our server's recommendations were bang on. We were more than delighted with the Chicken Cobb Salad, and the Scallops With Spinach Salad that she steered us to. (On a prevous visit we had the Fish Tacos and the Santa Monica Chili -- brilliant as well.) When a Westside location works with our itinerary, this spot's a fave for us."

  • "We had a reservation at 1:30 and were seated around 2:00. The Mother's Day buffett was very good. I enjoyed crab legs, shrimp, salmon, eggs benedict and the like, as did my family. The dessert section was a little lacking, I didn't mind, but my sons would have liked to see something more. This was our second time we had Mother's Day brunch there and probably the last. The first time we waited for over a half hour for our valet-parked car. This time we joked that we hoped it wasn't the same. Alas, it was worse. It turned out that a hotel employee parked his car in front of ours, blocking it in and the valet had to run in the hotel to find him and get him to move it. This took 40 minutes. Not a good way to cap off the event. "

  • "We enjoyed our meal at Ocean and Vine. My husband ordered the macadamia butter and banana pancakes. Yummy! I ordered an omelette that I could select three ingredients for. The pancakes were fantastic ,but the omelette tasted too well done. Our server was the best ! He was both pleasant, and courteous and came frequently to pour coffee. We would return because of our excellent service."

  • "We really were excited to try this beautiful restaurant. Everyone at the table mentioned that our food was overly salty. The atmosphere was beautiful but the service was also slow. At times we didn't see our server for 20-30 minutes. We are not sure if the area tends to me more laid back because it seemed another restaurant we visited the next day took 20 minutes to place our order."

  • "Having stayed at the hotel as a guest many times i booked a table at Ocean & Vine to show my partner one of my favourite spots to have dinner within view of the pier. Food was great, drinks also very nice. Unfortunately the waiter was condescending and rude. Very much an attitude of "you don't belong here" towards us which i find very offensive. Big song and dance made of ID'ing us for drinks, which is fine to do but a bit of professionalism is required. To put it in perspective we are in our late 20s, and as Brits this concept is bizarre to us to be carded at our age as it is without him making a show of us in front of the whole of the restaurant. No guidance on food choices either- ended up with WAY too much, Overall disappointing."

  • "Overall dining was good. Server was friendly and helpful, Julio. We had the oyster appetizer. New it was going to be cooked but you had so much veggie on top of the oyster, you could not taste the oyster very well. Plus they give you condiments as if you were having just oysters. Pork chop was excellent according to my husband. The local sea bass was okay. Not much flavor and it was cooked a tad too much for my liking. Risotto not creamy. Had the banana split for dessert,was good. Berries were fresh. Here is the really disappointing part, you could not see the ocean except what was beyond a tower out the window. I guess you needed to eat on the patio to get the good view. That was one of the main reasons we picked this place."

  • "Hi We Recently Dined At Ocean and Vine Restaurant Last Saturday, The Restaurant Was Not Very Busy . For Some Reason Our Service Was Greatly Delayed In Service Of Both Drinks And Food We Have Been Going To Ocean And Vine For Sometime . I Believe Our Server Was Overwhelmed Since We Had To Wait A Long Time Between Each Course Including Drinks We May Not Go As Often As Before. Food Was Fine But Not As Great As It Was Before . Thank You"

  • "Ocean & Vine has an ideal location overlooking Santa Monica Pier and the menu is good. It is great to go for the ambiance. This would be a 4 or 5 star review if their service was better. Servers are nice but incredibly slow, and with only 3 tables full on a Saturday night, it made no sense why (a) the hostess made us wait 10 minutes for our table despite the reservation on Open Table (even though 75% of the tables were available the moment we walked in on time) and (b) food took so long to arrive. If it was a busy night would excuse it, but it wasn't, and it makes me wonder if they make people wait just to appear trendy. Food is good, ambiance is excellent. If they only improved their service they would do better."

We booked the reservation on line and everything went off without a hitch. It is also great that the parking is a flat fee as it made it great for everyone."

  • "I think the service although attentive was not up to par for a fine restaurant. The restaurant was not busy and there was no need to rush the service. We finished our appetizer and as we put down our forks they placed the entrée if front of us and removed the plates from the appetizer. Any fine restaurant would give you more time."

  • "...but a terrific lunch nonetheless. The two salads I had, albacore Nicoise and spinach/scallop, were delicious and well presented. The apple desert was also very good. I understand there is no "chef" in the kitchen right now, but whoever is in charge is doing a wonderful job of filling in. Unfortunately, there was too much fog and too few patrons, but we three ladies had a very nice time, and the wait staff was terrific and very friendly. I definitely will go back, on a hopefully sunnier day."

  • "The restaurant was very nice and with fireplaces that small groups can sit around. My party and I thought the food was okay but wasn't super delicious (the risotto was too cheesy and besides that not very flavorful). I really liked the waffle sundae. The website showed an amazing night view but when we went there for dinner it was a disappointment. The reason I gave the restaurant an overall rating of 4 stars is because the service we received was exceptional. We had a last minute increase in our party and the restaurant was able to accommodate. Someone in our party was on crutches so the host put in an extra chair for her to elevate it and gave her a blanket to put over her leg. The waiter was very attentive and checked on us frequently."
