Nice New Restaurant
Went here for dinner only about a week after opening. Service was impeccable, and the food was mostly very good. My lemon oregano roasted chicken was more dry than I would have liked, but everyone else in my party was very pleased. They really went out of their way to try to make us happy, and I hope that service level doesn't drop off as time goes by. All in all, a nice evening.

very good. will be back.
This place is great. Excellent quality and perfectly prepared steak. The chicken entree was delicious as well. The poutine is sinful and delicious. Skip the cheese/charcuterie plate though.

I hope people catch on
Our server was fantastic, the food delicious too. We had steak and a tuna tar tar appetizer. The remodeling they did is wonderful with the big open windows facing the mall courtyard.

When we arrived the hostesses were attentive and very friendly. The night only got better from that point onwards. Service was overall perfect and the food tasted great. I ordered the ribeye and my wife ordered te ribs. The ribeye was cooked perfect and it was French cut the ribs were the best we've ever had, the meat fell right off of the bone. A good bottle of wine and we were both impressed. We live in the Santa Monica area and were told about this place from some friends, they were right. We'll be back...see you soon.

We had a bottle of wine and split the bone-in-ribeye ending with a mousse dessert. Service was excellent and the place was actually overstaffed for the volume of patrons. This is one of the best restaurants when it comes to convenient location, service, food quality, and serenity (which is tough to find for nice places in this area). It's undiscovered by many, which is a boon to service and romantic air.

I had dinner with a friend on Friday night and had a great experience at Redwood Grille. It had a great view, delicious food, & the service was fantastic. I would definitely recommend.

GET TO THE GRILL!
What a big beautiful restaurant! Every option is available here ~ pretty bar ~ big comfy booths ~ or dine al fresco at the Redwood Grille. The sides are big and suitable for sharing. Great big Rib Eye and local specials. Didn't stay for dessert but they sounded divine. For the familes ~ they do offer a good kids menu but no kids cups or crayons.

Unfound Santa Monica Gem
I took my wife there for our anniversary.
I've been here several time for business lunches and I have never been disappointed. I decided to celebrate our anniversary on there hidden patio. We decided to sit at a table that overlooks the 3rd street promenade after a great dinner we decided to enjoy a bottle of champagne and people watch the promenade. It was beautiful and memorable. Can't wait to return before it is discovered by the masses. Thanks for a great evening.

A foodie oasis in a trendy mall.
Now when I say foodie, I'm not talking food snob. Check out the menu. The owners and managers go out of their way re: service and proactively take feedback from customers as to your personal tastes in food. Santa Monica Place is one of the few malls I know that is a local destination for upper scale restaurants and an ambient social scene. Like many of the eateries on The Dining Deck, the floor plan and flow is open space and cheery. Redwood Grille has two al fresco patios, one in front and a large enclose patio in the back for sunny days and warm nights.

I've been here several times and I've never been disappointed. Great business lunch and a great happy hour. We'll be back again. Thanks!

Another perfect evening
I arrived with my wife and was greeted by a very personable host (I think it was a manager). We started off on the patio and short lye afterward moved inside, it got a little cold outside.
We started with some wine and moved on to appetizers and dinner. I had the ribeye steak which has got to be one of the best I've ever had. It was seasoned perfectly and grilled just the way I liked it. My wife had the halibut and it too was cooked perfectly. After dinner some cocktails and the end to a perfect dinner.
I've been here before and tonight it was the busiest I've ever seen it. The word must be getting out about this place. I also believe there were a couple of celebrities dinning a few tables over (not sure).
The end to a great day.

On Saturday my wife and I had dinner at Redwood Grille. The weather was raining and cold but the food and service was great and warm. The staff was friendly and made us feel like family. This restaurant is quickly becoming one of our fav.

Just what this mall needed!
I went with my wife for a late afternoon meal and was very pleased. Service was friendly and very attentive. The management visited our table and was welcoming and involved in everyones experience. We started off with the lobster tacos and octopus, both were outstanding. My wife had the lemon oregano chicken with the Mediterranean quinoa and I had their baby back ribs with mash potatoes. everything was perfectly prepared and the ribs, literally fell of the bones. I look forward to coming back and also relaxing while watching sports and having a drink while my wife shops.
