Based in the stylish Casa Del Mar hotel, this could be worth a visit during the day for the beach/ocean view. Skip it at night as the plastic sheeting that encloses the outdoor space gives a low end café feel and there is close to zero atmosphere. Service was on point but the food was disappointing. The menu was made up of unadventurous beachside fare and I ordered the chicken dish and my wife ordered the mussels. Neither dish was good. The catering manager and chef need to rethink the menu and bring the experience up to the standards of the rest of the hotel. We left regretting having chosen Terrazza when there are so many better places to eat in Santa Monica.

I love this place for it's grand presence and sweeping breathtaking views. Our experience was made even better by the outstanding service. More, the outstanding people who we encountered. What a nourishing break from our too busy world

You can't beat the ambiance, the views of Santa Monica and the Pier, and the location. There aren't too many places this close to the beach to enjoy. Food is good -- try the prosciutto pizza or fish tacos...and killer fries!

Lovely setting, and we expected the slow service, but the food was just average and generally, for the price, we wouldn’t rush back. Probably a good place to sit and have a drink but the food just isn’t great.

We enjoyed the outdoor patio and people-watching experience. The wait staff was very good, and the only complaint is that my main entree came at room temperature (steamed mussels), but otherwise that food was tasty.

Food was very good but service was poor. I ordered the eggs and bacon. The eggs came as ordered. It took another 20 minutes before the bacon arrived when the eggs were cold. Not satisfactory - don't go for Sunday brunch.

Food was very mediocre… and very expensive for what I got. I was still hungry after my meal. The service was slow and no one checked on us to refill waters etc. The views are beautiful but not worth the price of the food.

The food is good and the setting pretty. But while the servers are very nice, the service is extremely slow, in spite of there being few customers. Prices are overly high.

I went to Terrazza for a friend's birthday dinner, and it was a very enjoyable experience. The service was amazing, the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The ambience was beautiful, as we were out on the patio right near the beach. There were a couple disturbances from people wandering on the boardwalk, but that's expected and is something they can't really control. They did have security so that was helpful. The drinks were so yummy, and the food was delicious. I will definitely be coming back!

We had dinner on the patio. It was a gorgeous view of the beach and the pier at sunset. We had the wagyu burger & the lobster roll. They were delicious!
The staff is really great & so was the service.
We’re definitely going again.

We ordered the shrimp avocado toast (light and refreshing with clearly fresh avocado) for an appetizer and I had the chicken club sandwich (delicious but messy) and my mom got the fish tacos (awesome). We were seated right beside the bike path so it was energetic and lively throughout the meal, but we were able to clearly hear one another. After dinner, we went to the hotel lobby and watched live jazz and had some more drinks which was great.

The manager asked if we needed help to be seated and we said yes as the hostess was on the phone assisting another reservation. She told the manager she had it handled but continued to take the phone call. We had to wait for her to finish. I was surprised he did not just seat us himself. It took about 15-20 minutes to get our order in. Several waiters passed by us. They sat another person after us and took his order before us. The food was less than subpar. We had the eggs Benedict and the bread was to hard, the Hollandaise sauce had no flavor and neither did the side of potatoes. Overall very bland. We also got the waygu hash. It looked like beef stew. That was more flavorful but not much to talk about. You definitely pay for the view which is nice and relaxing. My husband said we won’t be back which is unfortunate.
