So good. Every dish. Every time.
Restaurant wasn’t completely full but moderately busy. Wait time for service on water, drinks and even the check was extremely long and the food was only “okay.”
There was a group that was extremely loud and rude. Everyone was complaining and the manager asked them multiple times to please be quiet....and they never did. Disappointing that management was concerned about ruining the experience of one table (6-7 people) at the expense of the rest of the guests (50-60 people). Very disappointing!
Loved the setting, the food , the service!
A truly lovely meal with friends !
The Penthouse is definitely a favorite. Whether it be happy hour, brunch or a celebration dinner (which this was) the food and service is always so good. Thanks for another great experience!
Once again our waiter Eric was amazing!!!
Our waiter was amazing
I was celebrating my birthday and the service was exceptional from the lounge to my dinner reservations! The food was 10! Top notch all around!
Great venue but I loved the staff from the valet, to the hostess, to the waiter, they were over the to great
The service was terrible. The presentation was awful. The lunch was disappointing for us.
A beautiful restaurant with gorgeous views, very kind waitstaff, and delicious food!
Beautiful view and a lovely meal!!!
Took 50 minutes to get our simple drink orders to the table. Inattentive staff and a manager that didn’t seem to care we were being ignored.
Nuncio was great. the avocado toast was amazing, insta worthy and extremely tasty. everyone was happy with their entrees. dessert was a fall down, too dry (bread pudding, and the apple thing)...
Everything was great, executive wine list was a bonus. Only complaint - felt bad for the tables in middle of room - a little crowded together, hard to have conversation. We however, enjoyed a lovely window table!
Flustered unfriendly waitress. And having no gluten or dates free alternatives. Very disappointed.
Food was great service was mediocre.
We celebrated my daughter’s birthday.. pleased to have the prix fix 3 course lunch . The food and ambiance were extraordinary. Our waiter was sooo attentive .
Sad that the curtain was broken and wouldn't raise. That really would have helped towards bettering the ambiance.
I simply loved the penthouse! Easily 5 stars! Very accommodating when last min changes came up! I would recommend for any occasion small or big casual or formal!
The view especially during sunset is beautiful. The staff was very friendly, the food and drinks were fantastic. We originally had a reservation in the main dining room but opted to sit in the lounge area in one of the private booths. Our only hiccup was the very table next to us with very loud patrons. The management was sympathetic to our concern and was very kind to buy us a round of drinks. Eventually they left and we enjoyed the rest of our evening. Would definitely come back
Amazing food and amazing views for a reasonable price. I take all of my out of town friends here.
One of the best and most beautiful places to have breakfast in Santa Monica. Food is top notch and the view alone is worth experiencing
If was the perfect place for a work lunch.
Loved it. Beautiful view. Service was excellent (Patty).
It was my first time here. I made reservations to celebrate my Birthday. I’m truly so happy I made reservations there. Since the minute I walked in I was greeted, The staff was very polite. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. I’m truly so happy with everything.
Birthday. My order came out wrong twice but otherwise all was well.
Amazing food and service and the restaurant is GORGEOUS. You cannot go wrong by going here.
It's always good to return to Santa Monica and a visit to The Penthouse Restaurant is always a highlight.
Great Food & Service
The Penthouse has amazing service from the servers (Patty is awesome) to the management (Brad and Mary are awesome)!
Restaurant was quiet because it was pre Thanksgiving. Was nice to hear ourselves talk.
The MOST beautiful view of the ocean and Santa Monica mountains while you eat. No better way to enjoy a meal with the people you know and love.
Great food and service. Nice wine options too. Everything was tasty and the views are great. Thanks, Andreas, for great service.
The service was beyond anything. We had such an amazing time, and who can beat the view.
One of the best restaurants in LA
The food and service were outstanding, the only thing that bothered us was that it was pretty crowded and noisy, people gathered around the bar and waiting areas, large parties' celebrations etc. I guess everyone wants to share the great food, location and views. We will come again!
Great place to eat, amazing ocean and city views
Stunning view, very good food, very good drinks, and very good service. Not cheap, but not a bad price for what you get. Highly recommended.
Birthday celebration was amazing
