The Penthouse Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated a family birthday at Penthouse and were awed by its amazing and expansive views of downtown Santa Monica. The pan con tomate, accented with bright persimmon and topped with delicate Iberian ham was divine. We the shared the branzino for two with pan roasted mushrooms and tomatoes, paired with a decadent balsamic honey roasted hazelnut sauce, which was as unique as it was delicious. The staff was very thoughtful and attentive and the experience is one we will not soon forget.
Very slow service, we order the avocado toast to come up first and everything just came at once. I tried to order a glass of prosecco and the waiter brought a Mimosa. I asked him if it was right and he said, “yes this is the Prosecco that is on the menu“ then he came back a few minutes later and admitted he made a mistake.Overall the service was very slow, they didn’t clear our dishes, drinks took forever to come to the table. Very disappointed in the service for such a nice place.
While the food, service (at least in delivering the food and attending to the table) and ambiance are excellent, my party of four were given the list of specials for the night without the waiter telling us the prices. While most dishes on the menu were in the $30 - $50 range (pricey but actually worth it), I assumed the specials would be in the same range or slightly higher. So specials-wise, my wife ordered the Lagoustinos ($69) and my friend ordered the porterhouse ($110 !!!!). I picked up the check and YES, when you assume... so shame on me. But would it be so hard to tell your guests the prices of the specials??? I didn't want to look like a tightwad, so I didn't say anything (again, shame on me). What I was expecting to be a $300-ish bill came to $491. I really like the place and lesson learned, but I can not in good conscience recommend the place when this is the way they conduct business.
I went for brunch on Saturday. I've been a couple times. Great ambience, light, bright, lots of windows and great views. I had the short rib hash which I usually get. It's amazing! As usual, the service is very slow, and hard to find servers for long stretches of time.
Unfortunately it was so loud that we could not enjoy our brunch very much. We asked to be seated in a quieter area but that turned out to be just as noisy, due to music blasting, bad acoustics and loud guests. The ambiance seems wonderful at this place, but not so much the actual reality of having a meal here.
The ambiance here is wonderful. There are views of the ocean from
most tables. The service is outstanding.
We were here for Sunday brunch and it was great.
The food is fresh and cooked to order and served
with flair. I would highly recommend this restaurant
for any meal.
