Vincent was very polite and friendly as he greeted us upon arrival. We chose to sit outside and he told us to select any table. Such a nice way to start off our lunch.

Our server Jaime was prompt, offered menu suggestion, gave us time to make our decision. We were not rushed. It was relaxing. Our glasses were never empty and our food arrived promptly.

Food presentation was beautiful and the food tasted as good as it looked. Not over seasoned. Salad was not over dressed and soggy. Everything was fresh. No complaints!

Everything was exceptional and we thank you for such a pleasant experience. We will be back.

They use to have an amazing Sunday brunch and no longer have it. Breakfast ends at 11:30am on a Sunday which is ridiculous for a hotel of the size. Many items on their kids lunch menu were also no longer available. The food we did order was OK and does not warrant a return visit. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Its such a shame since the restaurant has a great view.

We had Christmas brunch as we were given a gift to go here. Since we wanted a buffet brunch and this seemed to be the only one in the area we were excited to go. The setting was beautiful overlooking the Santa Monica pier and the ocean. We sat outside which was perfect.

The brunch itself is pretty small. Usual omelette station and some waffles/French toast. There was lox and cream cheese, but they use bagel “chips”. Strange to me being from the east coast but I was able to score a bagel. There were eggs Benedict, but they were gone and not refilled while I was looking. The lunch foods were turkey, ham and fish. While the quality was very good the food was cold and probably not to code for sitting out. The desserts were few and not worth mentioning.

Overall the experience was “okay” and there have to be better places out here like there are on the east coast. Perhaps just not buffet style. One last thing that annoyed us was that in the middle of the meal the waitress brought the bill and said just leaving this but no rush. How rude. She did that with at least 3 other tables who were visibly surprised as well.

This year, for the first time in 35 years, I did not cook on Thanksgiving. Instead we made a reservation here which I was unsure about. However, the meal, environment, service and selection was absolutely amazing!!! We are already planning next year at this delightful spot.
No question we would recommend without hesitation. My husband is a non meat eating health nut who had plenty to choose from sans the beef and turkey. Wonderful all around!!

We've been to this restaurant a few times, because it is casual, cozy, on the water and has some creative dishes and non-routine wines (14 Hands Cab and Merlot). Cheese board and fennel salad are a must-order on any visit. Ask for Katrina (sp.?) to serve you. She is fun, attentive and efficient. On our last visit, she even remembered where we were seated on our previous visit, number of guests in our group and the wine we had ordered! Phenomenal! Chef is sometimes salt-heavy, so make sure to ask the server to alert the chef to be mindful. Patio dining can be a bit cold, but they bring you nice, soft blankets to keep you snug and comfy! Parking is impossible, but they provide discounted valet parking for dinner guests. Overall, a good experience.

Really great place for brunch. We got there early, but they were able to seat us right away. The buffet was incredible - totally worth the $35. Perfect ambience for taking my boyfriend's parents out to see Santa Monica. Beautiful view of he beach and the pier if you can get seated outside!

Dinner was great, service was good, it was very loud due to a large party and the person handling valet fought with us about our free parking because she didn't know the name of the restaurant inside the hotel she worked for. The food and view was great though, it's a lovely restaurant and hotel.

A great place to celebrate a special occasion. We celebrated my son's graduation. The service was excellent with attentive and friendly attendants. They were very accommodating to my children's food requirements. The ambience was great and not too intimidating. It has the relaxed vibe of the beach. We came early evening to watch the sunset and views of the beach and ocean. The food were fresh and delicious!

Lamb and short ribs were great, three seebass dishes were all over cooked, very dry. Very disappointing but the restaurant staff took care of this very well. They offered us other dishes and the bass didn't show up on the bill, without argument or request, they took care of it.
The hotel (although we did not spend the night there) seems upper class. The Location is great, with ocean view. The restaurant is dated though and needs a bit of restyling. The food in general was good, but not splendid.

I made a reservation on open table only to find the place closed due to a private party. It was my girlfriends birthday and it was a little disappointing.

Needs remodeling and an upgrade of furniture. Cleanliness needs to be looked at.

The staff were extremely friendly and attentive:) My sea bass was overlooked but we were having such a lovely evening otherwise that I didn't mention it and am sure if I did that they would have brought me a new one. We went on a Wed eve and it was very quiet w very few other tables so definitely not a 'scene' good or bad when we were there. Am willing to check it out on a weekend or happy hour to see if is livelier. Quiet was perfect for our occasion and recommend if you want to have any meaningful conversation.
