  • SO Disappointing!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    The ambiance was, without a doubt, lovely. While some of the food was good, other items were barely mediocre (e.g., the lobster club) and the service was abominable. We were celebrating my grandmother's 106th birthday and I have had better service at Denny's. My brother and sister-in-law were married at Casa del Mar, I've held numerous business client meetings there, but I will never go there again after this abysmal experience.

    I love that not people know about this hidden gem in the hotel. It has such a great view of the beach/ocean. The food and service are excellent too.

    Was pleasantly surprised. Place looked great as brunch was where the bar was before. Food was really good which can be hit or miss at places with a view like this.

    Amazing spot that doesn't disappoint for scenic view, quality of food or service! The view of Santa Monica beach and Pier on a warm Friday afternoon was the perfect way to enjoy my business lunch. Service had the perfect flow for attention and yet minimal interruption for conducting our biz meeting over lunch. Highly recommend the spot.

    This restaurant is absolutely gorgeous, located in the expansive lobby area of the Casa Del Mar Hotel. Our window table overlooked the lovely Santa Monica beach and, though it was an overcast day, it was simply beautiful to look at. The tables are spaced widely apart, so noise is not an issue, and the dining accoutrements are upscale and lovely. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, and other staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good, but not as spectacular as the setting. Everything was beautifully plated, and portions were more than adequate. I had a 3-course lunch special, with an appetizer of mussels, an entree of seafood linguini, and a dessert of pastry and berries. All were excellent.

    This is a great space for gatherings. It looks like the Brunch menu was adjusted, but for the most part it was still good.

    The staff was friendly and professional. The atmosphere was nice. The menu was limited for brunch and our meals were expensive and not great. I would go back for the view, but not for the food.

    Photo was misleading. We thought place would have option to eat outdoors with ocean view as photo- instead, it turned out to be Casa Del Mar's indoor restaurant, only redecorated and renamed. Food was fine but nothing special.

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/14/2014
    The food was good but not good enough to justify the price. Our waiter acted like he hated his job and was irritated by us asking if the regular lunch menu was available (apparently they only have a very limited brunch menu on Saturdays) and if they had any fresh fish. It took forever for our food to come and they served one person's salad as an appetizer then brought out the rest of our meals only after she was done. This was supposed to be a nice graduation lunch but we would have had a more pleasant time at one of the fast food places nearby.

    With a much larger beach to look at. Delicious Italian standards with an American twist (lobster panini) and some higher end gems (octopus on potato slice and hamachi are both great). Best dining view in Santa Monica and the hotel is beautiful. Great for a date or business lunch. Or both.
