    We went for thanksgiving dinner, and it was such a disappointment. $65 for slow service, terrible cold food, cheap tasteless dessert. It clearly felt/tasted like it had been plated hours before. Yet somehow took forever. Ambiance should’ve been lovely, but we were seated in the hotel lobby with bright lights on. Overall just really disappointing, and we wish we’d gone somewhere else.

    Thanksgiving meal was absolutely perfect. Service staff seemed short-handed and a little frazzled, but that didn’t compromise the overall quality of the experience. Loved getting drinks at the bar in the lobby of the Georgian while we waited for our table

    It’s a good place to have weekend brunch and the location is great, very close to Santa Monica Pier. Food and service is good, not a “wow” place to dine but a recommended brunch place to gather in a nice day.

    We came here on a Saturday, for a 3p.m. business meeting before dinner and sat on the patio. We parked in public parking a couple of blocks away for $21 dollars all day. There was an assortment of different plates and no one complained. The service was excellent with friendly staff. We would definitely come back.

    Didn't expect it to be Gourmet, so ordered Fish Tacos and Burger with salad. Nice portion of salad but drenched in oil. Burger was loaded with heavy mayonnaise. Prices did not match quality by far. Ambience could be much more imaginative with that sort of setting.

    We were seated for brunch inside the hotel not realizing that the bartender would also be our waiter. We both got cocktails and main entrees which were both below what you expect from the prices. My mermaid mimosa and my partners mai tai both tasted like a drink off of Bourbon St. and our food looked decent but lacked any kind of flavor. When we returned to the hotel to pick up our car, we waited 10 mins for the valet driver and decided to talk to the restaurant manager who acted like there was nothing she could do since we ate there an hour ago. Although, I saw that my bartender who served us was still there. Don’t waste your time or money on this place.

    Joanna was an amazing server, lots of great local advice. Very dog friendly, even brought out a water bowl so we didn't have to use ours. My filet was cooked perfectly and the truffle mashed potatoes may be the best mashed potatoes I've ever had. My husband's lobster roll even more delicious than he could have hoped for- extra meaty.

    This is a lovely environment. The outside of the hotel is exquisite and a beautiful blue color. It seems as though guests were excited about staying there. Four of us loved our outdoor brunch, and enjoyed the conversation which was terrific in this breezy, sunny setting where we could see the ocean on the horizon. Food-wise, the brunch was generally good. One member of our party didn't think the French Toast was soaked through enough with egg which would have made the consistency of the toast better.

    My wife and I had reserved a table and when we arrived were seated immediately. I ordered a martini and was brought a rather large glass filled for what I thought was the largest martini I ever saw. Tasting it however, I found the drink was very dilute, possibly watered down. I brought this to the attention of our servers and he brought me another one which was much improved. There was a very generous portion of mussels we tried but unfortunately there was a paucity of broth which was essentially tasteless. A "surf and turf" was also tried. The tail was perfectly prepared and was luscious with the clarified butter. The filet was ordered medium rare yet was brought very rare. I did not have it returned despite the excessively salted cut. I was hoping the taste would be improved with the separate side order of béarnaise sauce. I was further disappointed. The appearance of the sauce made me question if it was prepared there freshly or a Knorr packet you can get at the market. I suspect it was the latter. The appearance of the sauce was not inviting. There was an excessive amount of vinegar taste which made it less than palatable. It could have been more tasteful if there was less salt and more tarragon. I do not recommend this restaurant.
