The Penthouse Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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!
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.
Always a pleasure dining at The Penthouse. Have been many times for dinner with friends and clients. The view can't be beat and the decor is beautiful. This was my first time for Sunday brunch and certainly won't be my last. Top notch all the way. Thank you!
The views are spectacular from the elevator to the table. Our waitress happened to be the hostess at the time as well...this meant she wasn’t as attentive as could be. But I get it she was pulled. Everyone we encountered was very friendly from the valet to the manager walking about....the food is fresh, tastes amazing and the presentation is wonderful. I would definitely go back!
Main Course did not arrive at same time. Waiter was knowledgeable (ingredients) and professionally nice. Service was slow where it should not have been. Had to ask for bread twice, salt and pepper came a tad too late. Complaining on high level but at items $45 and up, I can expect a level of superior attention to detail. Lots of other places to go to in this city.
The bar and restaurant area are close together. There were a bunch of 13 guys having drinks and they were super loud. None of the restaurant staff seemed to care. You go there for the view. The food is ok but for what you are getting, it is too expensive. Our waiter was very attentive though.
The Penthouse served our purpose to take out-of-town visitors to a place that had unusual appeal (in this case, the view). Unfortunately, it was foggy, but our guests appreciated the idea and were pleased. Also the booths are good for conversation which was important in this case.
This place gets an A+ from me. The Penthouse at the Huntley is my go-to place for breakfast/brunch. Everything is fabulous. The coffee, the food, the ambiance, the ocean view and the service are all top- notch. The hotel is chic and in one of the best places in Santa Monica. The beach is one block away with loads of shopping and things to do in the surrounding area. You will not need your car but if you have a car great; Because the excellent service starts with a warm welcome from the Valet and as you walk through the stunning lobby the staff will also greet you as you take the elevator up to the highest floor, the penthouse.
We had an absolutely perfect lunch at teh Penthouse with some big foodie friends who were in town from Singapore. EVERYTHING was perfect. Window table with views to Malibu, great, great service and wonderful food all at reasonable prices. You won't find anything better!
