Thanksgiving dinner was very special and we loved the quiet table and the live jazz. Our kids appreciated the kids menu, apple cider and the ambiance was also approachable for families. Highly recommend.

The special Thanksgiving dinner was a disappointment. The turkey was room temp and dry, the vegetables were undercooked, the the plating was unappetizing. The dessert was good. Unfortunately the dinner was not up to the normal standards of the restaurant.

The thanksgiving menu was overpriced. I don't eat any animals nor fish, so I had the vegetarian option, which was really tiny and not very flavorful. The butternut squash was nothing special, either. The desserts were fine, but I don't eat dessert, so I had one bite. Other restaurants had a vegan option, menu, that was less than the regular menu. Wish they had offered that. My friend asked for more butter, for the bread, and our server pointed to the second one on the table, also nearly empty, and said, "there is more there." How dare we ask for more butter. The only thing that saved the evening was the live music in the lobby, afterward. Matt Von Roderick was in fine form playing some of our favorite standards (the really good ones) and a few holiday songs, along with Mitchell Long on guitar. You can't beat the view and the atmosphere at Casa del Mar, but I don't recommend the holiday meals.

Went for a Thanksgiving meal at 2pm. . Three courses. $115/person. The first two courses were great, desert just so-so. My spouse thought the same. Both were dried out and kind of stale. The atmosphere was top notch. Sat next to the window looking out the Santa Monica beach and pier on a spectacular day! The price was well worth it for the view alone.

The ambience is lovely. However, the food is not as advertised and the waiters don't document your orders so almost every item we ordered was incorrect.

After getting every item of our order incorrect, the waiter took the time to blame the runner and vice versa. I don't care who caused the issues, just bring what I ordered. They literally tried to force a pizza on me I didn't order.

They then said sorry he was pushy about forcing the pizza. The kitchen is 3 floors up and it is hard on them running up and down.

Again, not my problem - especially given the prestige of casa del mar and the ambience you are paying extra for.

I would never go back again. Just suck it up and wait for a table at shutters. There is a reason Terrazza is empty and Shutters has a significant wait.

Overall, a good experience. The service was really good. Great recommendation was made regarding lamb shank. A couple of dishes were less than impressive. Caesar salad had very little dressing and more other types of lettuce than Romaine; lobster roll was bland.

The Terraza restaurant is no longer an outdoor terrace but inside the Hotel Casa del Mar and you discover that when you are there. Extremely disappointing.

Beautiful setting, excellent food and prompt service. The octopus was cooked perfectly, and the crabcake paired with its garnish was extremely flavorful. The oysters were very fresh and the fish tacos were very tasty and filling - flaky fish and just slightly breaded with a wonderful sauce and seasoning. The drinks were done well. Will come back!

There was a wedding on the outdoor terrace where we had booked our table so we were seated upstairs in the lobby restaurant. Although we would have preferred being outside given the pandemic, the upstairs room was large and lovely and the tables spaced well so we were not overly concerned. The food was well executed and the wine underwhelming.

The server was excellent. He is polite and friendly.

The reason for the four rating, is that our food was cold. This was the 3rd time in a row that our food was cold. Cold Eggs Benedict, Potatoes, Burger. For some reason, they cannot get the food to the patio hot. We won't go back again and eat in the patio. We will wait to eat inside.

The view was beautiful, service and food were great. The only issue was the A/C. We had a window seat and the air was blasting thru the vent in the window sill next to us, so much so that it blew the cloth napkin off my lap.l and the paper menu off the table. They couldn’t turn it down because it’s controlled centrally. They brought a couple cushions to put over the vent but the air flow was so strong that it was blowing out from under the cushions! It also wasn’t hot outside so it ended up being quite chilly. The option was to move but then we wouldn’t have window table to watch sunset. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Our waitress talked us out of everything we wanted to order. After complaints on every item we wanted, I finally ordered something she approved of. 30 minutes later, a different waiter comes to tell us they ran out of that item. They offered to comp our dessert for the inconvenience. The bill came and we were charged for absolutely everything we ordered.

It was our 1 year Anniversary with my partner. We were in LA on an long layover on our way to Las Vegas. Realized DineLA was going on until the 15th so we decided to take advantage of it. Made the reservations hours before and asked kindly to accommodate the table with the view to the Santa Monica Pier. The host was very graceful and happy to help given the fact we arrived couple minutes late. Outstanding job!!
Food came out quickly and hot and it was the best meal I’ve had in a while. From the appetizer to the main course and dessert it was wonderful!
The server didn’t know we were on a time crunch so I like to believe she did the best she could. Not knowing the full details of the dishes was a bit cumbersome but keep the intrigue right on point.
Would 9/10 recommend to anyone in the area who wants a great view with very lounge-y vibes and some great food and wine.

We sat outside in what started as a windy evening. The staff was super attentive and immediately set up heat lamps. Great service suggesting different drinks we all enjoyed. We took advantage of the DineKA menu and had a reasonably priced 3 course meal.
