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.

They made our first experience there a lovely one. Robyn who the manager informed me has been there since it started was extremely helpful. Our drinks were never empty and she spoke to me about which meats paired well with other items along with good drink choices (I always ask what the waiter/waitress loves because I know it has to be delicious). I enjoyed the experience so much I had to brag about Robyn to her manager 🙂.

Even after that they went the extra mile with us. After realizing it was our anniversary they apologized that we didn’t get a complimentary dessert and gave us a gift card. It was all around a lovely evening. We’ll be back.

We had a very good waiter, Ricky who gave very good recommendations and provide amazing service. The other reason we loved this restaurant is their no corkage policy, inspite of the fact that they carry a very good range of wines

The best steak i have ever had! Love the dry age room and the menu streak selection. I called the next day and asked about the process just because i woke up with the taste still in my mouth wanting more. Highly recommend. Great name as well

Scott was very knowledgeable, personable, and friendly and gave really good recommendations, especially for the 6oz wagyu. Drinks were delicious, we had the Hereford and the Broadway. Wait time to be seated was reasonable. Service overall was excellent, we would definitely come back and recommend our friends and family.

Oh and the dinner rolls were TO DIE FOR!!!

We definitely had a mixed experience but everything ended well. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess couldn’t find my Open Table reservation for four that I had made 10 days before. I explained that I had been contacted three days ago by the restaurant to confirm that we were coming. I reiterated at that time this was a special birthday occasion and a table preference which I was assured was noted in the reservation. All good I thought.

The host then found the reservation but said they couldn’t accommodate the type of outside seating but they could put us down on the street. I told the young man (the messenger) that I was disappointed and mad about this. My daughter in law, the recipient of the birthday dinner then intervened as she is in the business. Finally a manager got involved and got us to an appropriate table. My suggestion is that they need to better train their front door staff.

Then we were introduced to Ray. I’ll call him Ray the Redeemer. He set in motion a magical evening and exceptional service.

The food was good, but maybe overpriced. Maybe not as it is California on the beach. I will note that i was taken aback by the cost of the bottle of wine. I had to recheck the menu and noted their pricing was by the glass and 1/2 bottle not bottle. My mistake but I felt a little duped by that.

Overall, the company of my party of four is what made the evening special.

Our server was great, wine was great, food fell really low and didn't have much taste. after spending $500 you'd think you would actually have some top notch food, yet we didn't. Not going back.

Very nice restaurant and nice location. Food was very good. Had a table viewing the beach. What made it all come together is the great service. Raymond was so great with our kids and had fantastic customer service. He entertained our kids the whole time and made them laugh. My kids said he was the best server they ever had! I would eat here again and again.

Our waiter was amazing! If only I can remember her name but none the less she was on top of making sure we were ok or need anything she was consistent and polite. Every time I go it’s always a good experience and of course some scrumptious food 👅👀

This was our first time visiting this establishment. The vibe was really nice. One thing that really stuck out was our Greek waiter. He was phenomenal, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the different foods. I would highly recommend this place.

The hostess were rude to begin with.We weren’t given kids menus and had to ask for bread. All while our reservation was at 745pm and we didn’t sit down until 8:20pm (with 2 kids) we didn’t get bread until 8:50pm. Put us in outside on deck where it was cold. Chicken I ordered for my daughter wasn’t cooked. Food wasn’t worth it for what the prices were. I’ve gotten better service at a buffet restaurant for 25 dollars for a family of 4

The food and our service was great. We had the tempura appetizer, shared the steak and Chilean sea bass. All great. For cocktails I had the margarita verde (?) and my hubby had the old fashioned. Everything was great. The ocean was beautiful and I’d for sure go back there
