    We sat inside even though we booked outside, but it was a wonderful ambiance and my Lemon Ricotta Pancakes were very good. Our server was sweet and accommodating.

    We had lunch with the DineLA menu. Large portions and very tasty food. Staff are exceptional. Lovely outdoor patio with plenty of privacy with an outstanding ocean view.

    We came here for dine LA lunch and were really impressed and very very happy. We got the Waygu hamburger and the shrimp ceviche. A lot of food, really delicious. We had wonderful service, although it did take a while to get the food. Loved the ambience. Its outdoors on the patio of the beautiful casa Del Mar hotel and right on the Santa Monica boardwalk facing the ocean and we could see the Santa Monica pier. It was really special and I would go back.

    Outstanding!! We go the Patio Del Mar now all the time instead of next door at over-priced, pitiful food Coast at Shutters! Although toward the expensive side, the Wagyu Hamburger was worth more than what we paid; the gazpacho delightful, oysters fresh, lobster roll ever so tasty! Add in attentive and kind service from Eric, our waiter, we enjoyed our lunch overlooking the ocean immensely. Highly recommend Patio Del Mar!!

    A great spot for lunch! Right on the beach- was beautiful! We ate dinner but with their limited menu & early closing time it seemed more like a lunch spot.

    I did not like the limited menu specially the fact they didn’t have fries. Who serves a burger or a sandwich without fries??? Even the manger wouldn’t make the exception since the kitchen was on the “second floor”! What a bunch of you know what! They even got the burger temperature wrong. Since you know it was coming from the second floor kitchen they had to undercook the meat??? I have been to the upstairs restaurant many time over the last several years never had such a bad experience! The patio needs a better menu, service and management!!!

    Few choices and overpriced. Being a local I've eaten here before and it changed in 2022. They used to have a larger menu and prices were ok.

    Can't beat the location, especially for sunsets. Service was great; food was tasty. Too bad they close relatively early - get you order in before 8PM.

    The service was excellent, the menu was limited, the food was good; but DEFINITELY overpriced. Being able to access this casual patio from the beach is definitely a plus. However, adding to their very limited menu: salads, soups, & a few other lower-priced items would definitely help, & might encourage me to return.

    Good until group of smokers sat down. PLEASE ADD “NO SMOKING” INFO TO THE MENU AND ADD ORDINANCE FORBIDDING SMOKING ON ALL CALIFORNIA BEACHES AND PARKS - $25 citation for first offense. TOURISTS may not know and the smoke is very uncomfortable. The Security Guard advised the people to move away from the tables BUT not all the time. Please respect rules AND YOUR GUESTS - do NOT put me in that position of policing. Thank you.

    Eleanor was our server who welcomed our group with a smile and knowlegeble menu recommendations. Although it was discovered there was no octopus, Elenor recommended the large platter including sweet lobster and clams etc. Delicious! Eleanor served our seafood with style and spice. I see her as Jennifer Lawrence look alike. Fun and beach vibe. Will definitely return...

    I love the idea of it and the waitstaff was great. I wish there was more variety of food and that you could get cocktails down there. Don’t always feel like wine. More heat lamps would be good too.

    Fabulous Frank is back! Extremely happy that Sushi Chef Frank is still with CDM… the only reason I return! The view is great but the sushi and conversation is the BEST!

    This is a lovely place right next to the beach and the food was great. Minor drawback is that the menu is pretty sparse and a tad pricey for what it was. Still, a lovely experience. I will return.

    Great service, great location but menu was very limited and a bit over priced for the size of entrees. We are locals and used to come last year when the menu was larger. May be a while before we come back again.
