Only outdoor or bar seating. It's a beautiful place so I wish we could have eaten inside. There was a loud band playing at 1212 which made conversation difficult at times.
Good vibes and great service
overpriced food for small portions
Great place with excellent food, service and ambiance. Lasagne, French loaf and Brussel sprouts were amazing. I would have preferred the waiters wearing masks (even outdoors), but all are vaccinated.
What a fun time! Great environment, fun server, casual and delicious! Great cocktails and super yummy food! Fast and delicious!
Great spot. Great cool looking restaurant and great vibe. Def go.
Food was amazing as was the service.
It was a Disco night with - DJ Black Lamb? Music was insanely loud and I was sitting outside. No one could hear conversations around us without yelling.
Nice outdoor setting with plenty of heaters for when it gets chilly. Food was tasty, although the portion on the salmon was really small for the price of the $28 plate.
Cocktails were really good.
Always good service and easy to get a table!
Restaurant is amazing. Food is amazing. Staff is amazing.
Sadly I don’t remember the name of our server but she was
Drinks were so, so.
Food looked very presentable. Some were definitely more flavorful than others. (We did a bunch of small plates and appetizers).
Really nice with the live music. The music afterwards was a little loud and kinda changed the atmosphere (unfortunately).
Was nice. Food was good. Music was a bit too loud for me. Lots of outdoor seating
We stopped by for the wine and charcuterie board which is $35 for a bottle of wine & a beautiful cheese and meat board. We arrived around 1030 and they close at 12. They didn’t rush us out and the staff was super friendly!
Came with a group and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
We had an awesome time and the waiter was amazing!
Excellent choice for dinner after a movie. Sat outdoors on a wide patio with plenty of space between tables. Live music. Delicious happy hour menu and drinks (try the sangria).
My experience here was amazing! Our server was Nike and he recommended some of his favorites and did not disappoint. Food was very delicious and his service was outstanding. Can’t wait to come back again.
Difficult to use bathroom due to club event
Please be mindful when servicing all customers. There was a big group that arrived near our table and it was really hot outside. The server ended up taking away our only umbrella without asking if we were ok with it. When we brought it up, the server said he couldn’t move the umbrella back and he didn’t provide any other solution. Based off this experience, we unfortunately will not be returning nor recommending.
Good! Love the bottomless mimosas
Food was excellent, servers very friendly. The only potential downside is the noice level. If you plan on having a meaningful date conversation this is not the place to go. But if you want a vibrant and energetic atmosphere this is perfect
Bad service, I’m very disappointed overall. They gave us the smallest table possible to have a dinner, the plates even didn’t fit there, but restaurant was almost empty. The food came after few minutes not as requested and my grilled chicken was totally cold. I was thinking how they can make a lasagna in a few minutes??? We refused to eat and just left. I’m not coming back.
better than expected ambiance, food and service. will be back.
Robert showed amazing customer service when I arrived, and Candy was a very down to earth and fun waitress. Excited to go back.
Our servers, Holly and Dylan, were amazing, and the food was great as usual (The tuna nachos are absolutely delicious, as are the arancini). We arrived on the early side because we were going to a 7pm performance. My only complaint, and it’s a big one, is that there was a very very loud live band starting at 6pm. This was a Friday. It was DEAFENING. Once it started up, we ate as fast as we could to get the heck out of there. I feel bad saying this because Holly and Dylan did their best, and as I said the food was wonderful.
I have been to 1212 many times during the week and I’ve always loved it! Great food, cool ambiance. But I will not be dining there again on the weekend.
The outdoor dining in addition to the live music was remarkable. The setting and ambience needs to be experienced not written by others
Food was great with tasty options
Fire place at the couch kept turning off after a couple of minutes. Music was fairly low. Host sat our large party of 11 in a small couch area when there were plenty of empty tables and other couch spaces available.
We ordered the small plate meatballs, which had incredible texture but lacked flavor, the bruschetta, which was not crunching, and the gnocchi which was AMAZING. We split pappardelle which tasted like flour and was stuck together. The parts that were cooked were incredible and the sauce was as well. Thank You for the experience an we will try the 1212 on more time to see if it was an off day.
Great neighborhood place with good food and a fantastic happy hour.
Fun, love the ambiance. Only wish the DJ would have stayed longer until 3p but other than that it was great.
So much fun!
This place was perfect for our get together. Mimosas was were great!
Excellent brunch food and drinks. Definitely will go here again. The music was insanely loud though with extreme bass - an odd fit for Sunday brunch. So beware if you're sensitive to audio.
I loved the ambiance and our server William was amazing so nice and attentive. Loved the cool DJ too with her pink hair.I will definitely be back again
Wasn’t impressed with the food. Service was slow.
Group of 20, on the eve of my son’s wedding. Hosts were accommodating even though it was a busy Saturday night. Food and drinks were great. Service quick. Sat outdoors and enjoyed Santa Monica weather.
The server keep comming and saying you need to order ASAP or otherwise you need to leave I’m not exaggerating every 1 min she came and asking us do you need something it was rude and not feel comfortable at all
Great fun place for brunch with friends. Very decent food, if that makes sense, drinks were good. They have a DJ and bottomless mimosas.
