We enjoyed a sumptuous, yep that’s the descriptive adjective-
lunch. There is not an unacceptable seat in the restaurant!
The view is on par with the appetizers and entrees.
We ordered the shrimp/ feta/ tomato appetizer, served with crusty bread slices (I commend myself for choosing well) .
Then ordered the fish of the day and fish tacos .
Both equally delectable . The french Rose was from a premier vintner. I share not one negative. Service was attentive but inconspicuous ! The bathroom upstairs was also extremely well appointed. Thank you- A truly lovely aesthetic/ gastronome experience!

Was perfect for entertaining out of town friends. Was a bright sunny day with lots of white caps on the ocean. Our friends were very impressed with the view, the food and the presentation of it. Our server was training a new employee. Only downside was they forgot to bring the Bloody Mary our friend ordered and never came back to check on us after food was served. It was not on the bill.

Food is fine but you go for the view. The service is very slow - I was waiting for a friend for about 5-10 minutes and wasn't even offered water. After my friend was seated, I had to ask for a waiter twice just to get coffee.

My visit was great until I asked to have my meal boxed. I realized that after i got home, the server never gave me my rib-eye and asparagus. When I called back, the manager had an attitude and promised to call em the next day with a resolution. I have not heard back from them sense.

Absolutely loved all the food! The night views of Santa Monica are lovely as well. Woke up days later dreaming of the meats on the charcuterie board, but all the food was great!

Lovely lunch but we asked for bread three times before we were able to get a simple order of toasted sourdough. Our waiter told us twice there was no bread when we saw sandwiches at the tables around us.

Everything is mediocre except the view. We like to bring out of town friends there for lunch to get a nice view of Santa Monica.

This is definitely a cool location for brunch...great views, good food and really tasty cocktails. It did take a long time to get our first round of drinks, which is my only criticism but also typical with craft cocktails.

The ambiance was perfect for a lunchtime date at the beach with a great view. There was an issue with our pastry appetizer which had plastic in one of the muffins. The manager and waitress did a tremendous job of fixing the situation and making mine and my girlfriends early Valentine’s Day date one to remember! Thank you!

Ambiance was great and view was stunning, but the hostess was rude and staff was slow. I used to go there a lot but was slightly turned off by this latest experience.

We arrived to celebrate our anniversary, we wanted a nice dinner, a happy place but the place was a Zoo. People shouting and talking loud standing everywhere! We left when a group of around 12 arrived for a birthday!! NOT APROPIATE IF YOU WANT INTIMACY.

Went on a Sat night with another couple to celebrate my wife's birthday -- had an amazing evening. Spectacular views of LA from top of the Huntley Hotel can't be beat. Restaurant surrounds the bar and it was VERY LOUD (which we normally don't like) but the high energy level helped make the evening special & festive. VERY HAPPY with the food which was upscale CA with STRONG Mediterranean/Greek emphasis. Old stand-bys like Lamb and Grilled Feta were re-invented into dishes that were gorgeous and delicious. A New Favorite!

A great view with very good food and service, just a bit spendy. Dinner for four was about six bills without any high end wines. Good fun....just have your wallet ready.

Food tastes good, the drinks are very small for the price. Only reason I would go here again is for the scenic view.

The food was excellent as was the service. The location and the view were remarkable. We have fond memories. It was a Saturday night so it was very noisy. But other than that I recommend very highly. We shall return.

Great food and service with amazing views. Rather on the expensive side, and the noise level made it almost impossible to have a conversation with my dining companion. Tables were uncomfortable close together.

I'm glad we went, but I'm not sure I'd go back given the noise and the crowded floor space.

The food was over priced for the quality. The noise level was deafening and I will not go here again for a meal. I think the acoustics are poor. Service was slow even though we were there for a late lunch. Would not recommend for a special occasion. $25 for yellow tune poke bowl?????

Alway beautiful atmosphere and great food. Service was a bit slow and took about an hour to get a couple of salads. For a small group get together we did not mind, because we were catching up. But for a business lunch or if you don't have a lot of time, might reconsider this location.
