It’s always fun to be there! Best bloody Mary’s in Santa Monica and a brunch menu to accompany with multiple good options. Service is outstanding as well. I highly recommend one of our regular go to spots!

Lunetta is always friendly, the staff usually smiling and happy to do whatever you ask. Memela is especially wonderful for brunch or lunch but I don't recall any bad meals there.
Raphael the owner is almost always on site and interacting with his customers, happy to see people. I hope that the two built-out fancy patios in the parking lot stay, they need the capacity. Few places any more that the parking is not only so easy but FREE! Lunetta has become a neighborhood institution, truly.

First evening out with friends after we all 4 got our Covid 19 vaccines. Lunetta has 3 open dining rooms, with tables appropriately distanced. There were simple instructions on the table on how to download the menu onto our phones. Felt safe. Menu had choices from a "proper" dinner to sandwiches. I had the salmon sandwich, my husband the fettuccine with mushrooms, both tasty. Nice to have the owner stop by to check on us.

The service was horrendous! We had reservations, but there was no host to manage the arrival of customers, with or without reservations. Some ditzy waitress didn't know or care to check on reservations and seated the loudest arrivals first. Then she forgot to actually place our order, until we queried her 45 minutes after placing it. I paid the bill and she forgot to bring back my credit card along with the receipt, so my friend went to find it. The waitress had left it on a counter.

My friend and I have always loved Lunetta and, pre-pandemic, met there frequently for lunch. We were so looking forward to meeting there again. I would not recommend it until they improve their game.

First time trying Lunetta. I had an 11:30am reservation. My party showed up 15mins late, and even though they had a line around the corner they still seated us immediately. The waitress and busboys were kind, helpful and welcoming.

We came to have the “Taste of Lunetta” tasting menu for lunch, unfortunately they no longer serve the tasting menu fir lunch.
The waiter suggested I order the “Special” of that day, Steak Fajitas. The Fajitas came cold in a skillet which should have been sizzling and the accompanying beans and rice were also not hot or warm. Very disappointing! The lunch menu is limited and easy to bore of and so needs some additional entrees and soups choices. Shrimp should be included in the salad add ons.

A quaint corner restaurant with charm. The food is very good and the restaurant really does care about their customers and pleasing them. A really nice brunch menu which draws a big crowd. I definitely recommend you make a reservation in advance. I think you'll find yourself going back often.

Lunetta has done an amazing job at preparing and serving both take-out and dine in delicious meals in face of the ever changing restrictions of the pandemic. The "Taste of Lunetta" menu changes with market (farmers market, that is) conditions and is the culinary statement of Lunetta's commitment to gastronomic excellence combined with social responsibility.

Lunetta-Where class meets casual dining. This place is a great restaurant for everyday dining or a special occasion. We ventured in on an early Saturday evening and loved every part of our visit. The food was outstanding. We shared the burger and the chopped salad and finished off with a piece of chocolate coconut cake. All five stars all the way around. The ambiance was classy went comfortable and the wait service outstanding. We will be back for sure. I would highly recommend.
