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.

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.

Sunday birthday brunch. Sweet view, delicious food, great service. There were two of us and we split the pastrami hash and waffle. Our waiter brought a delicious cheesecake slice with a candle gratis. With validation, valet parking is about $10.

It was a lovely view of the beach ocean and the hotel lobby so pretty and majestic. The food was
fair and over priced for the quality. The spanish omelette was over done and that is usually the mark of
a great kitchen can they make eggs any style very well. Shrimp cocktail was quite good. Service was okay.
Thank you.

We went for brunch. The service was terrible. It was hard to find a server and virtually impossible to get their attention once we had food. The food was ok but nothing exceptional.
This is a second poor experience here over the last year.
We walked over from Shutters hoping to have a great meal overlooking the beach and the ocean.
All one gets here is the view. Hotel management needs to take a hard look at management of the restaurant and specifically training. It is an absolute waste of a beautiful space in an elegant hotel.

I booked this place via OpenTable for 4 people for a 50th birthday brunch for my husband. Since I could not book for more people, I called and left several messages via telephone to book an additional 6 people, totaling 10 people, specifically scheduling for am 11:15AM brunch because several members of the party did not eat meat, nut did eat eggs, cheese and vegetables.

I received a call 2 hours before our meal that they had suddenly decided not to offer brunch and that only their lunch menu would be offered. No time for me to reach everyone in the party.

Once we got there the manager offered those of use who did not eat meat with the option of getting omelets. The problem is that it took over an hour and a half to get served pretty simple food. Then we waited another 45 minutes just so my husband could get the most pathetic piece of cake to blow off a candle.

Everyone was pretty shocked at the service and most importantly I felt bed for my husband.
You only turn 50 once.

The room and ocean view location is gorgeous which thank goodness made the get together very special.

Couldn't ask for a lovelier day. Ocean view table, delicious avacado toast with shrimp and sundried tomatoes, sun was like diamonds dancing on the water, the best muscles I've tasted in a long time, bicyclers going by, one of the nicest birthday lunches in many a moon.

Three of us went to brunch to celebrate a friends birthday.

We were well received and had a nice table with an ocean view (although the ocean here is along ways away). Sorry to say this is where the good times ended. The guest of honor ordered Eggs Benedict and two of us ordered the fish of the day. The Eggs Benedict arrived with the bacon burnt and some dry looking potatoes slopped on the plate. She sent it back and settled on a waffle which was acceptable but as she said "not as good as Jinkys" which is a breakfast place in Santa Monica. My dish, the fish of the day, was also acceptable. The fish was okay and the accompaning salad quite good. Not something I would return for, however. All in all a big disappointment.

The location is simply fantastic, right by the beach, couldn’t find much better if we looked.

The staff was extremely friendly and our server was especially attentive, making for a great, relaxed experience.

The food, while delicious and tasting fresh, was just a little under-seasoned and bland, especially when it came to my main course (the pastrami hash).

Other than that, we had a great taime at Terrazza and will most definitely return.
