Everything was wonderful. The kale salad with salmon was recommended and it was beyond my expectations. The gluten free panna cotta was to die for!!

This is my go-to for breakfast and brunch! The decor and ambiance are a dream - green and plush! The service is always great, and the folks that work here are always friendly! Last, but not least - the food is always consistently delicious every single time!!!!! On top of that it's presented beautifully! :)

Tuscan Kale salad should be removed from the menu. Worst salad ever. Also, update your parking info...it is $9.50 to park , not $7. All in all, with so many wonderful chefs and food on offer in Los Angeles, this is not the place to go for cuisine. That said, there is no better view of the ocean!

The view is beautiful, but the menu is not reflective of Los Angeles. Not only was it not tasty, but not natural. There is no excuse for this. Prices are exhorbitant. When the meal is also poor why dine there. Valet parking is poorly run. It took one half hour to retrieve the car.

This restaurant is inside the Casa Del Mar hotel by the ocean. The ambience is great and the restaurant is beautiful. However, the service was subpar for a 5-star hotel, the food was not that good and not done correctly, and the value was quite poor - breakfast for 3 was over $130, with inadequate service and not so great food. I do not recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

The setting overlooking the beach is lovely. Our waiter was attentive and the service was very god. We were all disappointed in the quality of the food. The eggs I ordered came on a soggy English muffin with potatoes. If I had know there were potatoes, (not shown on the menu) I would have asked for a substitute.

Service was poor; waiter didn't know what a champage cocktail was and kept asking if I wanted champagne or prosecco. Food took forever to come, more than 45 minutes. Couldn't flag the waiter down for the check. Food was meh (eggs benedict dry, eggs over-cooked, muffin tough). Guests from out of town wanted a nice lunch with ocean view. View was good but service, food quality, and timing were poor. And music was very awful (minus one star) in quality.

Setting is beautiful! Service was good at first, but then very lame. Filed my coffee cup 1/2 full and spilled it on table and saucer, but didn’t bother to wipe it up. Put candles in our dessert and one wouldn’t light so he pulled it out and the dessert fell apart and he just left it.

The ambiance and food were beyond wonderful. You can’t beat the view. We came for Mother’s Day, based on an email solicitation. The email contained neither facts that is was prix fixe nor $110 per person. We might not have made this choice, we might have, but it was overpriced.

The restaurant was completely unprepared for the Mother’s Day patrons. Our order took more than hour to be brought to our table. When we mad our reservation they didn’t have the Mothers Day brunch menu posted on the website and made to mention of the prix fixe menu when they called to confirm our reservation which turned out to be $100 per person. We did speak to the manager about the late arrival of our food and they reduced our bill. Our server was very courteous and considerate. The view made up for the rest of it.

Beautiful view, great place for a special occasion. We were celebrating Mother’s Day. Service was okay, however it was somewhat busy during the time we were dining. Food was overall solid , however price and portion size was small ( which was expected). Overall, good experience. Would come back for a special occasion.

We had the worst service you could possibly imagine, and I simply cannot give better scores to this restaurant. Unacceptable. I wish I could have had my money back, or at least have had one dish comped, but they offered neither. I will not be going back here. There are plenty of other expensive seafood restaurants in the city.

Excellent place for a special occasion or a casual lunch/drink! I went here for my 40th birthday breakfast and it was a wonderful balance of casual and classy/special. Gorgeous island-esque ambiance, breezy, bright, comfy chairs, chill and of course that beautiful ocean view! It just felt really peaceful yet upbeat.

Prices are a bit high (cappuccino was $8, but delicious) but the food is really good and everyone was satisfied. There is a light and airy quality about this whole place and the set up of breakfast (toast in a basket, little jars of jam) add to that unique "fancy hotel" feeling which is really fun. I especially liked the Spanish omelette and pancakes! yum!

Service was efficient and friendly.

Wonderful ambiance, very poor service. 45 minutes from ordering to receiving 2 salads for lunch, and then we had to ask for them. We'll go back because it is so lovely a setting, but we'll be more insistent about our time frame to receive our meal.

Terrazza is lovely, but I don't think it is worth it for breakfast. The views are wonderful, the service is superb, but the breakfast lacks some creativity (for the price). Also, brewed coffee...unremarkable--no excuse for mediocre coffee in this day an age. While the food ok/good, I just didn't think it was worth it.

The ocean and beach views are everything you want in a beach side restaurant. The only service issue was the waiter not knowing the fish of the day and had to run to the kitchen. Then when asked about the kind of oysters, he had to return again to the kitchen. Yet, he was friendly, checked on us, and provided all we asked for. The prices are a bit on the high side - maybe not for Santa Monica and beachfront dining - especially the drinks. However, we had good food, great views, and a nice leisurely paced lunch where the noise level was low and we could carry on a conversation. Bottom line - we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.
