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.

Perhaps I expected to much. We had a 6 PM reservation and weren't seated until 6:20. Food was good, but not exceptional. We waited forty minuets between salad and entree which I find totally unacceptable. Our waitress was nice and fairly attentive and the steak was quite good but the cold mashed potatoes were not acceptable.

We were seated at a fairly good table, but the breeze got cold after the first hour and the heater near us was not on. We asked to have it turned on but it never happened. Two and half hours for dinner for us is a long time (that includes the 40 minuet pause in the middle mentioned above).

Our server was excellent and the meat preparation was right on. The portions for the sides were a bit small and I really missed not having a baked potato with the trimmings. All in all we had a wonderful time and the comped deserts for the two occasions we were celebrating was really generous. Thank you MEAT.

The food was EXCELLENT and the service Ricky provided was perfect! We enjoyed our dinner & Wine and loved the big open window staring at the ocean .. will be back!!

My only suggestion for improvement would be the music choice, sounded to much like a club which took away from the tranquility of the ocean.

They charge Fleming’s, maestros, and Eddie Vs prices for an establishment that isn’t classy and I don’t say that to talk bad about the. I loved it but i feel like you pay for the location more than a classy dinner. Also, I LOVED the customer service!!!

Overall service was great. From our waiter who delivered outstanding service. He was very entertaining so that was a plus. The food was very good!! We both had steak. You have to try the French fries! Just order it as appetizer.

Right on the beach front, for a tourist trap the food is ok. Our mash potato was lumpy and the Mac and cheese was so dry, it was literally pasta topped with cheese awful. Great wine selection, spirits and cocktail menu. Also the view isn’t as great as the online pictures make out

My fiancé and I were in the Santa Monica area and were craving steak. I am glad a reservation opened up because we loved everything about Meat On Ocean. I want to give a shout-out to our waiter RAY! His service and communication were spot on and because of his professionalism and kind words, my fiancé and I will be back and will choose to sit in his area! It’s employees like RAY who make the dining experience more worthwhile! Cheers RAY!!!!

We got seated on the patio, so we can see the beach and ocean, but when we sat down, all you could see were the tops off the umbrellas and the heaters. The food was good though.

The food and everything along with the server was great. The only slightest downfall was on one of the Steaks should have been medium rare but instead came back well-done. Overall, great place and definitely looking to go back really soon.
