Steakhouse
Meat On Ocean is exactly what it sounds like- a meat-centric restaurant with breathtaking views of the Pacific. Located on the corner of Ocean and Broadway, in Santa Monica, this is not your traditional world-class steakhouse. The meats on this menu are much more adventurous, and they’re enhanced even further with an artisanal Charcuterie Bar, an exhibition Dry Aging Room, a vast variety of Prime Beef- from Dry Aged domestic cuts to the Japanese A-5. Also present is a team of interactive Butchers, trained to communicate directly with Guests about everything, including the Beef, Organically Farmed Chickens, Pork Ribs, and House Made Sausages.

In these times it’s nice to eat at a place that has outdoor dining of the pre covid variety

We went for DineLA and they have a great value going on. We got an amazing meal along with wine pairings and everything was delicious. Our server was also extremely friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent.

Very welcoming and staff is nice and warm. Parking is located at the back and I do believe the valet comes out after 6pm. The meal was out of this world.

Didn't expect much from a restaurant called Meat, but I was pleasantly surprised. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. My husband had been wanting a steak for months and he got one! A beautiful cut of bone-in New York. He practically licked the plate. My Chilean Sea Bass was delicious. I would have liked some sort of light sauce, but it was still good.

Best steak in a long time and the sea bass was very nice!! Amazing dessert!! Only downside was timing-the entree came when we were still eating our salad.

Celebrating Valentines Day 2020... yes 2020..
My boyfriend is a Valentine baby and we celebrated his birthday 2 years in a row and postponed Valentines Day celebration to the following week then the PANDEMIC hit and Lovers Day was not celebrated.. Told our Server and he told him he had a lot of making up to do.. We all agreed and laughed.. Loved the ambiance and the food was amazing.. Surf & Turf for me.. yummy cooked to perfection!!

The food & service are always excellent here. The only inconvenience we had this time, due to covid, was being seated literally on the street and couple of cars had a very bad carbon dioxide emission, so the smell mixed with the food taste in our palates

Excellent experience! Nice location across from the Santa Monica Pier.
The steak(28oz Porterhouse aged 120 days) was one of the best steaks(and most expensive) of my life!!! And NO...I did not eat it alone :-)

The 90-day dry aged t-bone was amongst the best steaks I have ever had - and I've had a lot of good steaks. Exceptional flavor saturation, perfect medium rare with nice texture. The service was outstanding. Wine was great (we had pinot noir). The restaurant itself is very well designed and opens up to a beautiful view of the ocean and the pier.

I had high expectations and they were exceeded. Well played, Meat - well played.

Such a great experience. A good “go-to” place to have in the Rolodex. Steak was absolutely delicious (filet mignon) as was the cheese board, bread, etc. happy to have joined this venue for food, wine and ambiance during the sunset hours.

I've written reviews for Meat on Ocean before, but always after a visit for dinner. This visit was our first time at Meat for lunch and it was just as perfect as dinner! As always, drinks are perfectly on point. The charcuterie board is a personal favorite of ours! This time we tried the humus, which was delicious and boasted just a hint of spiciness which I love! We had a Caesar Salad with Salmon and a bunless burger, both of which were absolutely perfect lunch items! Already have our next visit to Meat booked and are salivating in anticipation!

Eating outside and being in Santa Monica, we had a short encounter with a homeless person. Restaurant management handled the situation professionally and discretely before we even realized what was happening. The food was very good and an overall great evening with friends.

My birthday dinner. I wish the porterhouse and Mac & cheese was hot not just warm. However, the ambiance was romantic and ocean view beautiful.

I ordered the crab cake as an appetizer and it was very delicious. Just enough crisp on the outer layer and flavorful and meaty on the inside. My main course was the filet mignon and lobster tail, with mash potatoes. It was cooked to perfection. The bread was served complimentary and was fluffy and fresh. My server was pleasant and ambience of restaurant was inviting. They just forgot to light the little candle at my table, but no biggie. Will definitely dine there in the future!

Food was delicious! Clam chowder has a hint Of bacon flavor that works well with the clams and potatoes. I love the warm bread and the Crab cake had lots of big chunks of crab and a nice crunchy crust. The grilled chicken was under seasoned and bland but fresh! The yellowfin was absolutely delicious and fresh! The Kumamoto oysters are to die for! Definitely coming back to this restaurant!!

Amazing Service and Amazing Food. There was a mix up with seating but the male manager (I forgot his name) went over and beyond to make sure that we were well taken care of and that we were properly seated. Mr. Charles was our server and he provided excellent service. I will definitely be back.

Everyone is so lovely there!! I think I left my sunglasses there and during their busy hour the next day Dominick took the time to go look, take my number in the event they would be found and I could not have been more appreciative. We had a lovely time and the food is AMAZING along with the AMAZING staff.
Thank you

We had a wonderful time ! The food was amazing ! We had the 120 day dry aged steak, mashed potatoes, raw oysters seafood tempura and crab cakes !!!! Everything thing was so yummy and the sides are big enough for two people to split. I took my fiancé there for his birthday and he throughly enjoyed himself ! We’ll be back for sure
