A word from The Roost at LA Farm
A Santa Monica landmark, LA Farm originally opened in 1984 and quickly became the go-to place for power lunches, romantic dinners and special events. Tucked away on the infamous Lantana property, where movers and shakers from the music, film, and television industry have maintained their residency since the 1980s.

Under new management, we are honored to make this classic, hidden gem our new home.
​Our rustic yet refined seasonal American cuisine is complimented by an international wine selection and innovative seasonal cocktails. With multiple event spaces, each one unique, we hope to provide the growing West Side community with a gathering place where locals and visitors alike can enjoy a one of a kind meal or celebration, in our warm and inviting contemporary farmhouse environment. We hope you will come see us!

  • Under New Management
    Dined on 9/17/2014
    I am lunch time regular at LA Farm. In fact, my staff calls La Farm my dining room. It is clear that the new management and new chef are looking to find their idea of the right combination. I was surprised by the new menu (after having the old menu for so long), but change is good and I am looking forward to new and wonderful choices on the menu. The menu is changing, but the service team is pretty much the same. Great service, good food, easy parking. Overall a great place for a business lunch in West Los Angeles/Santa Monica on Olympic.

    LA Farm has some great twists on American Comfort Food, as well as terrific Fish dishes. The energy is always good and the outside patio our preferred area to dine.
