Went for my girlfriends birthday. Sat on patio along Ocean Ave. Brian took care of us. Exceptional BI Filet - Oscar style - recommended by Brian. Great service, my girlfriend was extremely happy and I would definitely recommend to others.

Beyond amazing! Worth every penny. The best steak I have ever had. I have the ribeye and I tasted the teriyaki skirt steak, both were beyond words. To top it off the service is great. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! I will go every time I'm in the area.

Overall, this was a great date night spot for a special occasion. We have been many times, but the relatively recent renovations to the restaurant and outdoor space are a welcome and comfortable addition to a long standing figurehead of Ocean Ave in Santa Monica.

First time to SM location. Been to Sunset many times. This one in true SM style is much more chill, which is never a bad thing. Overall it was fine. My filet was more on the medium side than medium rare. Caesar was delicious as always! The tables and chairs in the room adjacent to the bar need updating. We did add a 5th and they made accommodations so that was very good move by the waitress.

This was my first time at the Santa Monica location and it was absolutely amazing. The service was impeccable, friendly and helpful. The food was to die for and I’m not even a big steak person but my husband is and he loved it as well. Worth every penny! Highly recommend for adults and families with children.

We pre-reserved and after waiting approximately 15 minutes, we were seated near the exit of the outside patio & across from the kitchen entrance. The service was below mediocre, the food was below standard, the cesar salads were dressed with stale croutons & the place was extremely noisy. The ambiance did not reflect upscale AT ALL, more so equivalent to TGIF. Overall, terrible experiece at this place and absolutely nothing like the many experience's obtained at the West Hollywood location. Obviously, we will not be going back to this location.

I came here for dinner with a friend. We had the calamari salad and Brussels sprouts. We both wanted to get steak, but were so full, we capped it at that. Both were excellent! Charles, the manager, was great! I look forward to coming back and having steak with bacon jam! oh - and the bread with butter and bacon salt was simply delicious!

Really nice wait staff and great steak. Loved the lobster mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts and their pink melon signature cocktail was amazing!!! Meat was a tad overcooked but still really good. Open table reservations was able to note this visit as a birthday celebration, and we got a free dessert and firecracker sparkler.
