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.

    Unlike other visits, it was a very disappointing experience this time. It took over an hour to get the main course and the appetizers arrived at different times. They did take the appetizers off the bill, but when you're looking for a nice dinner experience, you would rather have smooth service instead of a discount. We won't be rushing back.

    This is a great place to stop in with your buddies and/or family and have a dinner across from the Santa Monica Pier. Large dining room, streetside patio, cozy bar with banquettes for two or four with dark wood and rustic crockery. The service was delightful (thanks, Scott-the-actor) although we couldn't get another place after we were shown to our table because all the other tables were reserved, we were told by the hostess. Fine, we could have a good time anyway. We had wine (shared a glass of good merlot with the beef dishes) and it was delicious. There were hot rolls while we waited to be served and they were excellent. I had the crab cake appetizer and the Steak Salad (which came with slices of filet mignon) for dinner and my husband had a 21 ounce porterhouse steak which was excellently cooked. The marsala-glazed mushrooms were alacarte and sweet-savory and went well with the steak. At the end there was a chocolate caramel Creme Brûlée that was way too sweet but also very interesting. This is a place for special occasions if you aren't very wealthy. The meal I described cost $200 without tip. But it was great for a splurge and we would go back. Only one criticism of the food: use roasted cherry tomatoes for the steak salad. They hold up well and don't fall apart. And maybe throw in some chopped roasted walnuts. Otherwise, I loved the salad.

    Brought my Fiancé here for a birthday brunch food was pretty good our server Racheal was stellar. Read good reviews about the steaks I have to admit they weren’t wrong ! Cooked to perfection the least favorite was the Mac n cheese could use a little more seasoning but it was ok nonetheless We’d love to come back to try the dinner menu

    We had dinner late - so limited options - happy to find this place was open - used to be ocean seafood I think - ordered filet mignon - fries and oysters- waiter was good oysters good - steak poor to terrible - it was an obvious low to no effort in the kitchen due to late hour but still - if I’m going to spend $200 for steak dinner no drinks - I expect the steak to be exceptional - it clearly wasn’t.

    Overall everything was good but about half way through our meal the fire alarm went off for a good 30-40 minutes. We didn’t even know if we had to evacuate or not. They didn’t even come to tell us what was going on. It was unpleasant and we were not able to enjoy our food the way we wanted and didn’t even want to order dessert.

    We came for New Years Eve. Set menu of a four courses dinner. $135 a person. Includes a photo booth and hats. Photo booth camera didn’t work. Never got a picture. We got there a few minutes before our reservation and had to wait 20 minutes. Sat at the table for 20 minutes before anyone came to greet us or give us water. I was ready to leave then but it was close to 10:00 so we waited. Our first course came around 10:40. Now getting closer to New Years and haven’t had out salads yet. Called over the manager and he brought us our salads within minutes our dinner arrived. By now it’s after 11:00 and we still have dessert. Thought about getting it to go and stuffing our faces so we could go see the fireworks. Decided to just ring in the New Year at our table. As a New Years Gift they have us each a corkscrew. I say I got screwed alright. The bill was outrageous with no discount. We felt so sorry for the waitstaff we gave them a New Year big bonus tip. By the way the food was just ok. Dinner ended up being almost 4 hours long and $800 for 3 people with tip. So not worth it.

    I don't hesitate spending $200 on a dinner for my wife and I on a special occasion. However, Meat on Ocean was excessively loud and the jerks at the next table seemed to think that this was a sports bar. Other then that the food was over priced for only acceptible. But the upside was that the waitress was nice and attentive.
