Steakhouse
Located on the corner of Ocean and Broadway in Santa Monica, Meat On Ocean a.k.a. MOO is a meat-centric restaurant with breathtaking views of the Pacific.

This is not your traditional world-class steakhouse though. The dry-aged meats on this menu are much more adventurous, and the Charcuterie Bar is one-of-a-kind. Overlooking the blue SoCal sky, MOO is the perfect setting for a date night or a catch-up session with friends.

    One of my favorite steak houses. The food was great as usual. The wait staff on this occasion was sub par in the opinion of my party. He performed his assigned duties.

    I bought the $100 gift card and got $20 gift certificate but was not able to use it, very misleading. What's the purpose of the promotion if you're not able to use it.

    I truly can't say enough about how fabulous this Thanksgiving holiday meal was. For the past two years a friend and I have eaten out on Thanksgiving. The choice of Meat On Ocean was (initially) budget driven ($68 for a 3 course meal with all the fixings'?! Fantastic!). However, it very quickly became evident that this was a wonderful choice all the way around. The service was impeccable, the food amazing, and the warm and inviting atmosphere was a perfect way to kick off this holiday season. We plan to go back to try some of the other incredible menu options with several more friends soon. I highly, highly recommend Meat On Ocean!

    The sun shines in and is blinding. It is really bad and makes the dinner really hard to enjoy. I could not even see the food in front of me that’s how bright it was…I put on sunglasses and that barely helped. It was disgustingly bright. The server said there was nothing that could be done about it. The charcuterie board was nice but the steak honestly was kind of dry and tasteless. I have made way better steaks at home and have had way better steaks at other places for way less money. Drinks were slow to arrive. For the amount of money spent I think the food and ambience could have been way better.

    We are regulars at this place and visit two- three times a month, but this time around.. we were disappointed with our service. Our server was not attentive, available or caring. We waiting nearly 35 minutes to receive bread, while the other guests who came in way after ours got theirs. We asked for bread from few other waiters and no one brought it. Bad service! But, luckily the food (ribeye/ ceasar salad/ Mac and cheese/ oysters were good.

    Service and presentation was amazing and the quality of food was awesome. Love the atmosphere and décor. Felt like a classic steakhouse but more loungy & sophisticated. The Oysters, bone marrow, octopus, and dry aged steaks were very tasteful.

    Been here a few times. Typically very quality food and service. Maybe it was an off night, but food came out heavily delayed, then rushed. Drinks took forever but the bar wasn’t busy. Just a lot to pay for a good 30oz ribeye not cooked properly

    We had reservations, we were seated, 18 minutes before anybody recognized that we were there. There was only three other tables I had people in them, so it’s not like they were busy, then throughout the whole experience, and never truly knew who our waiter even was.

    Meat on Ocean is probably my wife and I's favorite place to get a steak!! Almost every time they blow it out of the park, but last night was extra special! Our waitress, Valentina was awesome! Super attentive with just the right amount of "enjoy your time". The cuts of meat are always cooked perfectly. One of the only places we go with big groups as well. You just can't beat the free wine corkage in LA!! Grab your favorite bottle and match it with a Meat on Ocean steak stat!!

    Our steak was delicious and full of yummy flavor. Service was a little slow at first; it took 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us and we got bread. I asked the individual that brought us the Caesar salad for lemons, and he forgot. The main server was good overall. For the money we spent on dinner, I guess I expected better service. The food was delicious but service could use more teamwork approach.

    Restaurant service was horrible, from the hostess on down I was celebrating my birthday and they lost my reservation which had been confirmed by open table, then, even after, showing the hostess my confirmation on my cellphone, rather than searing us, she made us wait even longer for no reason, the person seating us did not put out my chair for me even though it was so heavy I had real problems doing it myself, I could go on The waitress was better, but the bus staff took our plates and utensils before we were even done, leaving my companion without a knife for his streak and we had to wait about 5 minutes for us to call over our waitress as she was nowhere to be found. As to the food, the bone in rib-eye was amazing. Everything else was mediocre at best. Nothing was done about it being my birthday, not even a candle in my dessert. Very very disappointed.

    The ambiance was great! However the service was slow, our server forgot our drinks, the bartender was apparently “slammed” and so was the chef, mashed potatoes took a half hour to get to the table. Management addressed a vulgar, loud patron seated next to us, most appreciated. Food was memorable!
