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.

The charcuterie board for the price was not a good value.

The food was incredible! Service was good but not great, but because of the quality of the food...it was easier to overlook it. We will be absolutely coming back!

Great service and delicious food! Our waiter spent a lot of time answering our questions about the menu, specifically the dry-aged meats and I appreciated that. Would definitely dine here again

ABSOLUTE BEST. I definitely would come to Meat before going to any other place near the ocean. The restaurants in Malibu don't even come close.

Had the best seat in the house, service was impeccable, Ricky was a true gentlemen, and the management runs such a smooth, clean and safe operation. Truly made for the most wonderful of date nights, my wife and I felt both safe and comfortable. Cannot wait to be back

Just finished a meeting up in the West Side & stopped by for lunch. I’ve always driven by and decided to check it out - from the hostess to the drop of the check, everything was perfect. Will definitely keep coming back!

This was a business lunch I had to wait 20 mins even though I had a reservation my dessert took 1.5 hours to come.

Absolutely love the food and the atmosphere my reason for coming, but the service this time was extremely poor.

It was my husbands 40th birthday and we wanted to celebrate in LA. The night before, we ate at The Lobster and had a horrible experience (food was bad, cold, not what we wanted - even the tables next to us returned their food a few times). After that, I wanted to make sure we had a good meal. So, I gave Meat a heads up about our horrible experience and they really went out of their way to make sure our experience was amazing with them. The food was fantastic! I had the NY strip and my husband had the Surf and Turf. We also shared a dessert. The bread before dinner was even good. Waitress was amazing!!! Wanted to give her a shoutout but forgot her name (sorry). I will definitely go back - glad I went here.

Hostess forgot silverware, oyster forks and plates. Hostess also got order wrong for 2 members of our party. Drinks were slow to come out

Food was good! Not great except the Japanese Wagyu it was phenomenal.

Ambiance was pretty cool as well

Fairly pricy to not be Wowed by the food though.

This was our first time to this restaurant. I made dinner reservations for my boyfriends birthday the following night. When we first got seated for our 6:15pm dinner reservation we were not served or greeted by anyone for about 15-20 mins until we caught I believe a manager working that night by the name of “Kate”. She was amazing! She took our drink and app order right away and got us a server one of there best servers, they both were making sure we were getting taken care of. It was a quick switch of no one coming by to having an amazing first time experience. The food was mouth watering delicious. We had the surf and turf and our friend had the ribeye steak. Meat was done perfect and lobster was buttery and delicious! We also met some regulars there that were so friendly and nice! It ended up being a perfect night for all of us!

Everything were great. We even had a small tour from the General Manager. He was awesome. Thank you for taking your time and explaining how aging meat works. Our server Ekateryna was great as well. Everyone were very nice and welcoming. I would highly recommend this place. We are definitely coming back. Our steak were phenomenal. You can really tell the quality of the food were great. Thank you for the great experience!

Ari and Brittany were amazing. Both ladies took care of our table exceptionally well and made the experience absolutely wonderful. With the strict city restrictions and regulations due to the Covid-19 pandemic things were already a bit uncomfortable and irritating with seating and so on but these ladies brightened the mood, took excellent care of us and made amazing recommendations for our first time visit. Highly recommend and greatly appreciate their hospitality. Not to mention the manager was exceptional in taking care of us the moment we sat down to ensure a pleasant transition from waiting to sitting to receiving our first few drinks and appetizers.

Everything was great! Besides That our server seemed bothered that we had our small dog with us and when it was finally closing time he was no where to be found. We had to go inside and ask for him.

Tiny table, too close to passers by - they were literally over our meal if they moved over the half fence we were pressed against. Wobbly tiny table, server attempted to fix the wobble and it didn’t help much. Asked to move, only offered to fix. Food was subpar for the price. Our meal and appetizers barley fit on the table, had to constantly shuffle to fit enough room to enjoy the meal.
