I booked a reservation for high tea. It was confirmed and a reminder sent that the tea was confirmed for the next day. We got there and no reservation. Miguel and the chef did everything possible to make the tea menu at the last minute. Everything was deliciious Because of the mixup there were no scones but they threw in a free gkass of chanpagne to compensate. I appreciates their efforts to save rhe tea. Any olace trying That hard deserves a 2nd chance.
The service was very nice, the small savory sandwiches were very nice but the scones were perhaps the worst I have experienced, rock hard & dry. I make beautiful light moist scones with a recipe from the Ritz in London. The Peninsular in Beverly Hills makes very nice scones, the baker should go & try them. I would not go back to this rerstaurant because of the awful scones.
My 2 daughter’s & I celebrate high tea every year at this time... best high tea ever!!!
The food was not hot.
Lovely sitting on the patio. Very competent waitress.
Definitely my go to restaurant!
The food was nothing special. My salad with chicken seemed like something out of a food court. Pretty room but we thought it would be special and just did not measure up to expectations.
tried to go for dinner. We were told to sit anywhere. No clean tables. No servers around. We left after 10 minutes and went to a different restaurant
Outstanding experience- great food and ambiance. Fantastic service!
The view is awesome. We had high tea, and it was a great experience....the food was just not our favorite items.
The high tea was nice. The food was good and there was a good selection. A little on the pricey side. Nice location right on Ocean.
A group of 5 of us elderly ventured for HIGH TEA. We all had the best time for the service was great and the food was delicious.
Service is a bit slow outdoors.
It’s easy to spend a lot of money for meh food and even worse service just because it’s Santa Monica.
When some friends decided to come up from the OC for brunch we promised to make their trip memorable. A foodie friend and SM native suggested The Veranda despite my misgivings about it being a tourist trap.
What a magnificent recommendation it turned out to be. The table was ready for us when we arrived. Our server Miguel couldn’t have been more attentive. The food was quite good and everything seemed very fresh and carefully crafted. Even the prices were quite reasonable considering the aforementioned service and food coupled with the priceless view of the Pacific!
I was Very pleased with our whole experience and we will be back soon for High Tea!
Excellent service and excellent food. 2 hours of free valet parking is excellent and all the employees very attentive.
The Veranda at The Georgian is always lovely. I met a friend whom I hadn’t seen in years (as she’d moved out of the country) for lunch. The view is beautiful and the food was g eat. It was the perfect place to pick up our friendship now that she’s back in town.
The location is very nice, as was the wait staff, but the food, the presentation, and the selection of choices unfortunately were quite mediocre. We have had brunch there and found it to be quite descent, but dinner has a ways to go.
A great location in Santa Monica. Group of 4 and we all enjoyed our meals very much. Nice outdoor seating on a summer evening.
Fantastic setting, right on the palisades. Request a table at the front with a view. Benedictin was good but by no means exceptional, egg slightly underdone with white still not set. Overall good, would return.
We always enjoy our time at the Veranda. The food and the excellent service is always worth coming back for.
The view is fantastic and location is great. Unfortunatly the food was not good. Salmon and mussels were not fresh. Also we ordered glasses of Cote du Rhône wine and they gave us some other wine ... We had to have it replaced. Its a good place for coffee or a cocktail but not a place to eat.
Place was nice and quaint, the restaurant is located towards the front of the hotel, so people come in and out a lot. The do complimentary valet parking. The food was good loved the stuffed French toast. Service was great always checking up on us and refilling our glasses of water. Overall great little place to have brunch or lunch with friends. The beach is right across the street
We stayed at the Georgian Hotel, where the restaurant is located. The service was amazing! The food was delicious. It was slightly pricey since everything was a la carte but it is right in line with all of the local restaurants. The ocean view was beautiful. All in all, my birthday dinner with my family was enchanting.
the service has been spotty in the past and has now gotten poor; the management needs to hire more wait staff or improve their ability to deliver service
The first two courses were terrific. Then my steak came and the meat was rancid. Spoiled meat. Almost gagged....
Wonderful waitress, Miranda? She put us at ease after stressing about the crowded parking situation, so welcoming and attentive too. Tacos were scrumptious, chocolate lava cake could have been moister. But the quiet balcony with a glass of Chardonnay is the best way to catch up with old friends. Will be returning!
Server was very weird but everything else was amazing
There are so few places that offer a good High Tea anymore - we're delighted that we now have such a great option right in Santa Monica in a gorgeous setting with a beautiful ocean view!
Love this place for breakfast. The outdoor terrace has a beautiful relaxing view and the menu selection is great. Food was very tasty and fresh. We brought a couple of family members from out of town and they loved the whole experience. Valet is right in front too so very convenient.
Wonderful brunch and High Tea for my Family. Food was fantastic and the service top notch. Connie too great care of us and helped make this a memorable afternoon. We will definitely be back.
We celebrated our grandchild's gender reveal with all the important relatives. The waiter was so helpful and excited for us. The food was great and the venue perfect! The waitress was so very attentive to our every need to help make this occasion as great as it was!
I have been a long time resident of Santa Monica and I had wanted to visit the Art Deco Georgian boutique hotel. The food was excellent! We had salmon special, fish tacos and apple pie. The staff was genuinely helpful. We will definitely return to this little gem!
The food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t anything special. From the moment I arrived until I left I felt like was an unwanted guest and that they couldn’t wait until I left. It did not feel welcoming at all. I won’t be returning.
Great experience, beautiful patio, delicious food and awesome service - will definitely come back!
My wife and I enjoy everything about this restaurant. From the no charge valet to the appetizers, the flavorful entrees and especially the presentation. They even had our car waiting for us upon our leaving. Service is very good. If I were to make any suggestions it would be that the staff waiting on tables be a bit more fluent in English, but regardless the staff was extremely attentive.
“Terrific bar and great desserts!”
Too expensive for the small portions and mediocre food. Definitely depending on location to carry them.
Really cute brunch/lunch spot with perfect outdoor seating for a view of the ocean. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was only okay - it took a while to get our food and not a lot of check-in, but it was also a busy Mother's Day. Not enough to spoil the meal, and the server did thank us for our patience. Great tucked away SM spot!
Great location and food. Definitely going back.
I was born and lived in LA most of my life. I moved to SM in 1995. So this is a local perspective, not a traveler.
The dining area is smaller and in the lobby. So you feel more like you are at lobby drinks tables than dining. The set up is OK. But they are limited on space, so they have to make do. The site is an old 1920s building, which is pretty cool (old for LA, newly minted for most of the rest of the world)
We went 5:30p on Sunday. Sunset was about 7:40p. For reference, since this site is a) on the cliffs of Ocean Avenue in SM and b) facing 'west' to the Pacific.
Waitress - excellent. She was 'schooling' staff off in the corner for things she was not OK with. For me, not a big deal. The point is only that she cared and tried to provide A service. I am more about what is tried, than what I get. To each their own, so be mindful of that.
Staff - car, bus guys/girls etc: I thought they were competent. For those that expect perfection - not for you. LA is not for you. Go elsewhere. For those who are LA tolerant, they were just fine. But for those that want some food, and it tastes good, and to hang out at an old (for LA) site, I liked it. I would go back. For that 'oh so specific', don't go. It's OK, maybe Dubai is for you.
Food: For the foodies - I had the fish special "Branzino" and a) I am a fish guy (bad heart and so forth) and b) I like fish - NZ upbringing though born and raised in LA, but it was good and my plate was blank when I was done. So to each their own.
Conclusion: All A's. They did great. They tried. Not everything was perfect, but who cares, really? Go be a Roman Emperor somewhere else. For us normal persons, I liked the food, the service, the parking etc. So do with this as you will. If think you are special and food persons, yeah, not for you. Have fun with that in LA. If you are normal folk, and want a nice meal, without the ambience of anything, then give it a try. That is all I have to say about that (going all Forrest Gump on you)
First time as this restaurant. The food was great and the beach front view was amazing.y waitress was very nice and attentive. I recommend this brunch spot to everyone!!
Visiting Family in LA. We were happy we could get a reservation for brunch. Brunch was great very good service. Nice location.
