Went early on a Friday evening. While appropriate for a family dinner, was very happy to find the standard of food, decor and cocktails made it feel like an occasion. All our food was delicious - mussels, spaghetti and clams, and then our imaginatively-crafted fish mains, with the kids loving the burger and the steak mains so something for all. Elegant, modern surroundings, with a relaxed vibe at 6.30pm so great for easy conversation. There's a cool bar and I can imagine it gets a more lively and hip crowd later on. Good wine list and cocktails and actually surprisingly good value for one of the newer "talked-about" Santa Monica restaurants. Will definitely be back and would be fab for business lunch too.
