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.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and Meat on Ocean did not disappoint!! We had Josh as our server. He was awesome. Very personable and friendly but never hovered over the table. He checked on us a few times to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The seafood tempura was very good and my husband really liked the sea bass. The roasted chicken was cooked to perfection. The Mac and cheese was good, but not the best we have had. Overall it was amazing. The cocktails were really good too! Everyone we encountered was very friendly! It was our first time and we will definitely be back!

During covid,having a restaurant like this that has a indoor patio is a great benefit. Masked and shielded service. Great variety of steaks. No corkage, an added value. From a foodie prospective, the side dishes could be a bit better. I love this place and recommended it.

This was our first time at Meat. It won’t be our last. The food and our server, Miguel, were outstanding! On top of that, I had indicated we were celebrating a birthday and they gave us the best table in the house. We chose the Dine LA menu with wine pairings. It included Chateau Briand, shrimp cocktail, caesar salad and new York cheesecake. All of it beyond delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Everything was great. Exp i think meet is dry and they dont offer any bbq or something with meat.
Meat alone is little dry to eat its always best to add something next to it. This can be a house bbq sauce or a creamy mushroom sauce etc

Mom visiting - fabulous family time in the Oceqn and great food. Lovely night! Pricey but she doesn’t come and visit that often so it was worth it, plus we did the dine LA menu which was actually a great way to try everything. The value was good for what we had ordered. Top night! Wish they had a little music for ambiance. But other than that it great.

Overall not a bad deal on DineLA, steak was a bit over seasoned but cooked perfect. Amazing service from Erin. The only downside is the ambiance. We were placed in the corner by the hostess and a homeless person was able to grab my shoulder over the fence. I would suggest creating a better outdoor vibe in this restaurant considering the state of these times.

Our visit was amazing! We made a reservation a few days in advance and requested a table with a view. They accommodated us! We came in for the Dine LA menu. My both friend and I both did the $65 menu with the wine pairing for $30 extra each. We don’t usually spend that much but it was worth it! I will say that the bread pudding was tiny! It’s just a small piece but it was delicious. My boyfriend got the cheesecake and his was a whole slice. Can’t wait to come back!

Overall ALL of the bad parts of the experience were due to the idiots on the street, which the restaurant has no control over. We were forced to sit on the street due to COVID, so no indoor dining. The mountains were on fire so the sun was red, which looked nice, but the sky was grey. Our waitress was great, food was amazing, as were the drinks! Probably the best steak I’ve ever had. I will definitely be coming back!
