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.

Very busy as first Saturday with full capacity seating. Food took a very long time. 2 items were cold and the server removed from the check. Food was good and server was amazing and apologetic. Even topped off our wine as we finished the bottle before the steaks arrived.

30 day aged porterhouse was the best balance of beefy and nutty. The kids loved the BBQ pork ribs, which were fall off the bone!

Hostess was unwelcoming and cold. We had a reservation and still had to wait for a table. Food was ok. Nothing spectacular and for sure nothing worth the cost. They also forgot 4 items but still had it on the bill. Overall it was a huge let down.

Even though we went in with a reservation, we still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated in table cramped against the others. Service was completely inattentive, food took forever and it didn’t make up for the poor service and noisy ambiance.

Have been multiple times. First time since Covid. Generally a good meal but calamari was over-breaded and too little seasoning. Bone-in ribeye was very good but seemed a more fatty than usual. Pleasant staff. Great view but just a bit noisy, which made conversation a bit difficult. They have a great wine selection at reasonable prices and great charcuterie. Convenient and reasonable valet parking, which is great considering the traffic and difficult parking situation in Santa Monica. Will be going back. That's for sure.

Great good and service! Cocktails are great. They didn't have the

The seat by the window was super nice with the weather. They have built out the sidewalk with outdoor seating as well during the pandemic, which was nice because people and the cars were not right next to you as you dine in the inside window seating area.

We had an outstanding experience at Meat on Ocean for our Anniversary. The rich, expansive dining room, exposition kitchens and killer ocean views from their large patio all impress. The cocktails are outstanding, they boast an expansive wine list and the food is impressive. We did a late lunch to enjoy the sunshine and views, but the dinner menu looks great so we will be back! The food was sophisticated and beautifully presented, starting with perfectly plump, chilled prawns on ice, with a delicious cocktail sauce liberally spiked with horseradish. I'm awake now! My husband enjoyed a Caesar with mouth-watering, seasoned cuts of steak and I devoured a scrumptious steak sandwich with perfectly toasted ciabatta and peppery arugula. The house-cut fries are to die for, and we shared eye-rollingly good mac 'n cheese. While we enjoyed strong, good French Press, we were gifted with an outstanding New York-style cheesecake, one of the best I've had in LA. Highly recommended!
