Nice location with outdoor seating. Food was not so impressive.
Avocado toast was bland.
Outstanding food, service, outdoor dining. The best of dining experience and value pricing. Highly recommend.
Wonderful and Delicious Thanksgiving Dinner ! Outdoor dining area was spacious with comfortable seating. The only negative is that being outdoors you are subject second-hand smoke from passers by but it is infrequent. Great dining experience overall ! Thanks 1212 !
We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal there last night for 5 of us. The food was very tasty and we appreciated the vegan options. We sat outdoors with heaters. Great service from Rico. Not crazy about the disco-like music from the sound system or the occasional smell of cigarette smoke. We'll request indoor seating next time.
Jocelyn was amazing! ……………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
would be perfect with music playing at under 100db ..they either won't or can't turn it down. But, food is interesting and top quality. especially like the idea of ordering those little crostini .the porcini was the best, but all good. Happy hour till 7pm is a nice feature if you come early enough. Definitely returning, but sitting farther from the speakers if possible.
It was more of a party scene than I realized when baking the reservation, and there was a DJ. But we still had a good time and my food was good!
Brunch and club, all in one
We had a great time. The service was very good and the food was great. We've also enjoyed the the musicians that played and sang.
The food was great, the area outside was very nice, the service was good. My only complain is about the music that was too loud.
Hostess was very unfriendly and inattentive. Otherwise the rest of the experience was excellent
The food was very good and our waiter was great. The only thing I would say is that it was hard to get away from the music so you could speak with your companion.
Amazing waiter and food
Super fun ! Food is amazing just which they switched up the music a little
The atmosphere was generally nice/upbeat, but the food was mediocre and the seating quite uncomfortable.
Great food and the ambiance was fun!
Great if you don’t mind nice speakers n bass with great dj. Food and drinks are in quality and value. Servers don’t wear masks so we just put ours on when ordering.
1212 is a great place to hang out with friends with a nice ambiance and good music. If you want to hear what your friends are saying, however, make sure you ask for a seat pretty far away from the speakers.
Pricey for a casual snack
it was amazing we had a great time great food and atmosphere
Waitress was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. Food was delicious. Little noisy in snd outside, but we still had a great dinner.
We were in town from the east coast and were looking for good eats with a great atmosphere and great service. We got that all with this visit to 1212. Our server was Rico, and he was very attentive to our needs, while being very friendly and warm. Our food came out quickly, and the taste was amazing. Would recommend this place 100 times.
1212 always delivers on food. Consistently good experience and good ambiance. This is my go to for people visiting in Santa Monica.
The food was awesome but we specifically asked to sit farther away from the music. It seems really loud right in front of the speakers but if you can hear the other people you're eating with its a great time.
Great food - difficult to choose what we wanted because so many options. Amazing atmosphere! Cool servers and nice heaters for outside.
I love the gnocchi here
Grossley understaffed. Waiter took 30 minutes to take our order (first check in) then another 30 to get us check. He actually came up to us with the wrong check at first and took another 10 minutes to get it.
Amazing atmosphere. Great food and service was great
1212 is a great addition to 3rd street promenade! We had a wonderful night celebrating our friend’s birthday plus all the fun Halloween festivities 🎃👻 The manager, Nicolas, really knows how to take care of his guests, he’s amazing!!
Disappointed we booked on advanced only to be sat in the way back corner by the umbrellas where we couldn’t hear any music and under horrible lighting
Halloween dinner really festive atmosphere
Great food and service. Can be a bit loud at times, but that’s Santa Monica!
Had a terrible experience at the restaurant. Sat down and was waiting for 10 minutes our waiter to see us after we asked the manager. Then the server was rude and arrogant when we asked him if we could order some drinks. He then proceeded to take our order and then make us wait another 20 min u til he finally put our order in.
Great location with excellent food and drinks!
Food and wait staff were excellent!
Fantastic food! Bottomless mimosas were totally worth it! Best pancakes I’ve ever had. Amazing vibes!
My wife and I had a great dining experience.
Good cocktails and Victoria was a great waitress.
It’s hard to gauge the restaurant entirely because our party left soon after we sat down. It seemed like this establishment but more than they could chew with their capacity and seating arrangements. The “curbside” decor and table settings were uncomfortable and non welcoming for a proper meal and it took the wait staff a while to attend to and greet their customers. I am not putting fault on the wait staff as they were working very hard but instead management for extending their capacity way beyond what they could properly manage. Overall, our impression of 1212 was that we would not get great value from eating dinner there hence our decision to leave.
The chef is amazing here. Such a wide variety of dishes, from sandwiches and fries to filet mignon, all served with great care and spiced to perfection. Recommend the lasagne, Chilean Sea Bass (fish of the day), filet mignon and seafood pasta. A bit loud at times, but there’s plenty of room to find a quiet place.
