Lunetta does everything right, even and in spite of the pandemic. They make a parking lot feel like an intimate, cozy oasis and deliver an amazing meal (regardless of whether you're there for breakfast, lunch or dinner) with attentive service. My new go-to restaurant for personal or business dining experiences.

Way overpriced for barely edible food. When I mentioned to the server that my chicken dish hardly had any potatoes, as advertised, he responded at least you have French fries. No accommodation.

It is that best restaurant in town, we have had consistently great meals and excellent service, both before Covid-19 and during. I highly recommend Lunetta Lunetta and can’t wait to go back.
Personal favorites are the salmon, the chopped salad with grilled fillet and the chicken. You will not be disappointed
FYI, the best potato chips are amazing

Loved the food! Unfortunately, it was a bit cold for dinner and they didn’t have any heaters in the main dining area (we were in the 2nd outdoor area in the parking lot. The main outdoor eating area had heat lamps). I was very surprised that they didn’t have heating options. Loved the meal, but that was an oversight on their part.

Well-prepared simple classics like Caesar salad and Salad nicoise make this laid-back bistro a favorite lunch spot for this pescatarian. Excellent breakfast menu, too.

Sensational evening, tasting menu was superb, quality exceeded our expectations. Service outstanding, every morsel was a delight of flavors , parings were marvelous.

Where else during these challenging times do you have 3 outdoor patios, will full bar and chefs bringing their best to each table. We are not new to Raphael's restaurants , however during this pandemic we have been blown away by his dedication to management, staff, keeping moral up and the constant changing menus with farm to table ingredients. Cannot wait till next week to go back.

Lunetta does a great job in this Covid stupidity. Service is longer because of distance and server challenges no matter what restaurant it is, in which I completely feel for them. The heat lamps make it warmer but I would still layer when sitting outside. The food and drinks are absolutely excellent!!!

Excellent, especially in light of COVID restrictions. Hardly know it wasn’t “normal”. Cozy patio with heat lamps and well spaced tables. Like every restaurant in Santa Monica/West LA it isn’t cheap. But well worth the price for the quality. We’ll be back.

This was my first time down my out in eight months. The staff was very attentive and followed all cdc guidelines for safety during this pandemic. I love the meatballs and the marinated greens! A much needed break from my cooking ( excellent as it is!). Highly recommended

The food and service were great! We went on a chilly day and they had the heaters set up which was great! However, it was windy and there were some coverings up above but they didn’t do much. Thankfully we were at the end of our meal but there was all sorts of things flying into our food and drinks which was not so great! They definitely need to consider that as we move into our California “winter” because that will be a big problem!

We love Lunetta! Food is perfect as is their Covid protocals. One of the few places i feel safe going to these days. Only minor (really minor) comment this one time was that service was a bit slow as we were in the far away outside tent and dinner took a bit longer than usual. However, the servers were so lovely and careful and sweet that i don't even consider it a complaint. Just a note.

Good as usual. Gave a lower overall rating due to the fact that the wait was longer than expected, which was unfortunate. However, have to say, the food was worth the wait! 🤤

Delicious grilled salmon sandwich but the best part was the chocolate chip banana bread which the waiter had warmed up for us. A fitting end to a great lunch.

Found a sharp piece of plastic in banana loaf!! Be careful!

The mixed salad was extremely soggy and was probably sitting there for a while. I would not recommend the salad, it also had a mix of veggies that didn’t fit.

Lunetta is now one of my fav brunch spots. The drinks, food, and service was great even through COVID. It does get busy so service can be delayed, nothing absurd though.

We arrived at LUNETTA at 5:30, the outdoor seating was not quite full so we relaxed and in 20 minutes the patio started to fill up ... everybody had tons of distance, all had their masks on to begin with and little by little
mask came off ... but I noticed when the waiter would come up to the table, a lot of people would put their masks back on when they ordered their meal.
We re-mask with our waitress who by the way is
NICOLE she is warm, friendly and always helpful.

My 1st outdoor restaurant dining since end of Feb - and while I still would not want to eat indoors, Lunetta truly went out of their way to make it a safe, pleasant experience. The food and service was still great, and it was so nice to just kick back and shut out all the chaos going on in the world, spend time with a dear friend in a comfortable environment during trying times. Well done, Lunetta.
