Great service! Loved the view and food. Always one of my favourite brunch places.
I asked for a nice table On this app, quiet for a special date and although they have these, my request was ignored.
Way too noisy for an older couple who went early for dinner on a weeknight. Service was less than impeccable we had to ask a few times for things that should’ve been brought without asking
Lovely view, service and food were great!
Expected better amount of food for the price. Drinks tasted a bit bitter,. Hopefully next time is a better time.
Extremely rude wait staff -- they removed my brother's plate while his fork was halfway to his mouth. They also removed a half-full platter of roasted vegetabls before we could even ask to have them wrapped up.
One of our party asked for grilled salman and steamed vegetables and they wouldn't accommodate her -- I've NEVER had that happen before!
The noise level is unacceptable. We came for a special birthday celebration and it was an extremely unpleasant experience.
I can't say enough bad things about the way they treat their customers.
Wonderful service, delicious food and stunning views!
The view was absolutely stunning, and the restaurant has a contemporary beach vibe. We ordered appetizers, and most were delicious. The only negative part of the experience was the waitress took our drinks before they were empty, but besides that it was a wonderful experience. The noise level was louder than expected, but not too loud, too.
A very enjoyable setting and good quality food, I would most definitely recommend and go there again
We had breakfast bread basket which amazing, great almond croissant, avocado toast was beautiful and yammm, omelet was good, overall we loved the food and service.
Best Chinese Chicken Salad ever!!
The view was amazing. Our table was a little sunny. The servers were a little slow and my Wagu Burger did not have as much flavor as I had anticipated. The avocado toast is excellent albeit a little cumbersome.
The amazing view combined with bottomless Mimosa‘s is a good value for Saturday afternoon.
The staff were very accommodating and their service was excellent. The ambiance is perfect, with the overlooking ocean view. The food was delicious.
Lost a white scarf...
way to noisy, we had to scream at each other to speak
I didn’t have to wait very long and was given a window seat as promised!
The view is incredibly beautiful, food is ok , service ok but always late
Nothing exceptional. Wine by the glass selection very limited. Food was average. They reserve the best tables (with view of the sunset only for those are not dining).
We had a great experience, was able to seat where we wanted with the ocean view.
It’s always a pleasure enjoying brunch on a Sunday at this restaurant. Everyone is so accommodating.
I surprised my boyfriend with a romantic dinner at the Penthouse, and it was a total success! The restaurant is decorated to feel very open and ambient, complimenting the views of the city, the hills, and the sun setting on the ocean's horizon. The food and service were amazing, too! I would definitely come back and recommend this place to others for special occassions :)
We were in very good hands
The restaurant was very noisy. It was hard to carry on a conversation. The tables are too close together also. The food was good but the menu was limited.
Nice view but very loud. Enjoyed the scallops.
The service was impressed and the food as well. Highly recommended.
We were celebrating my husbands bday weekend and The Penthouse went above and beyond! Everyone was so nice and helpful and they gave us a great table which I had requested before arrival. Our waiter Nuncio C was super helpful,friendly and went out of his way to make my husband feel special. Thank You to everyone for kicking off his bday weekend in such a wonderful way!
Amazing dinner as per usual. Special shoutout to Brian who always makes us feel special on our date night. Service was exceptional as always. Thanks and see you soon.
The service was outstanding. Hector, our server, was very kind and attentive to us. All of the staff was sweet, even being kind enough to take our picture with outstanding quality. Thank you for a great dinning experience
We had reservations 2 weeks prior. I got a phone call 1H 30min before regarding the “special requirements “ for the group bigger than 6. Obviously I was super upset. I think they need to have that on the website.
Other than that super nice restaurant.
Great food, amazing sea bass special, and a wonderful view of the evening's sunset. Cocktails were also high quality.
Amazing! The view and the food make for an awesome experience!
Beautiful view with great service.
Chef is fabulous. Have had many good meals here. Great special occasion destination since the food and view are unparalleled.
Service was excellent. The management was especially attentive and the food was on par with the rest.
Try the almond croissant and the short rib hash
Very good restaurant and good service
Amazing good service
Our dinner time experience here was much better than the brunch experience. The dinner menu was fantastic while the brunch menu didn't really do it for us this time. I'd definitely recommend this place for dinner (especially during dineL.A.) but for not so much for brunch.
I requested a window table when i booked and they didnt give us one, but one far away from the window. The manager told me they dont guarantee window tables. We stayed in the restaurant over an hour and i saw at least 4 window tables available the entire time but they could not give us one. Very disappointed as i am a santa monica resident and go there sometimes. I would go more often but this is so annoying i wont
Amazing service! Thank you
First of all, the view from this restaurant is incredible! We came for brunch & everything was perfect - the service, food, and drinks were all delightful. The Hawaiian Papaya is a must-have!! It was a very relaxed environment with friendly and professional staff & the restaurant + bathrooms were very clean. This is a great place to bring guests from out of town, celebrate birthdays or anniversaries, or any other time you want great food with probably the best view in Santa Monica. 10/10
