always enjoy sitting outdoors here. great people watching and very dog friendly. I thought the eggs benedict was great, my partner thought the fish n chips was so-so. must say, the fries were a mess. the carafe of white sangria made up for it!

My cheeseburger was overcooked and hard. I was not asked how I would like it cooked

I did not return it because I did not want to put a wet blanket over a pleasant visit.

Food is good but the view and the people watching is top shelf. You literally see thousands of people walking by during one sitting as they come and go from the pier. If you like cool cars you also see a ton of those.

Service was lovely but my tuna dinner was stone cold and the noodles accompanying it were hard, undercooked. They graciously took it off check. Know if you come here that's it's right next to Santa Monica pier, so a TON of people walk by, so it feels chaotic. Also loud music speakers.

My family and I dined here for Easter brunch. The menu is limited and some of the servings are small for the price - however all of our food was very good. Our service was exceptional. We would definitely dine here again.

We had a wonderful experience for our family's Easter brunch! A few members in our group ordered the Prime Rib special happening that weekend and they were unfortunately served very cold! We notified our waitress and they immediately brought out complimentary mashed potatoes and took the steaks back. As an additional amenity, they gave our group a handful of their signature desserts to share - they were all super delicious. Overall, we had a wonderful experience even with the snafu. Would 100% recommend this place to anyone and everyone. All of the food, beverages, and desserts were delicious. The staff is also extremely amiable and constantly checking in on your needs.

We ordered the cheesesteak egg rolls seeing how popular they are on the reviews- they were way too salty but the sweet & sour sauce served underneath it helped balance the saltiness. I ordered the burger on a lettuce wrap- WAY TOO SALTY. I couldn’t even finish it... my sweet potato fries had no salt either.. & pretty soggy.
Everyone in our party said there food was mediocre... definitely not worth the price we paid. But our server was so sweet and attentive!

The eggs on my eggs Benedict were more like hard boiled eggs and didn't have very much Bernaise sauce so it was quite dry. Bloody Mary's were good but small. However, the ahi tacos remain outstanding.

Ate dinner here after spending the day at Santa Monica pier. Location and ability to use Open Table for reservations made is super convenient. Basically the same price as Bubba Gumps with less crowds, reservations accepted, and much better food quality & variety.

The ambiance was great, food was delicious but service was rushed and felt abrupt.

Waiter forgot our salad and corn bisque and said a quick, "sorry I will take it off the bill". Nothing offered to compensate. Left us waiting for drinks and long pauses between check-ins. Disappointing.

Everything was wonderful, especially the food. I am just finding most Santa Monica restaurants so overpriced these days. You cannot get a decent entrée in this restaurant for under $30, which makes this a "special occasion" spot only for us.

The place is obviously in prime real estate so the view is great. It was a busy night but after we ordered got our food fairly quickly. It is a nice place and the service was very good. The food was really tasty as well. The Tuna Tacos are my favorite thing on the menu . I would highly recommend this place.

We had lunch at Del Frisco's after I finished the LA Marathon. The restaurant is right across the Santa Monica Pier. There was a fence put up because of the marathon, otherwise we would have a nice view of the Pier. The service was great and out waiter was on top of everything. I had the crab cakes with two soft boiled eggs on top from the Sunday Brunch menu. The food was a little to cold in my opinion, but tasty.

Super service und exzellentes Essen aber auch für deutsche Verhältnisse teuer
Wir haben die Empfehlung der Kellnerin genutzt und es war die richtige Entscheidung.
Typisch USA: nach 45 min war alles vorbei und wir wieder draussen.

Restaurant ist sehr zu empfehlen.
