We will miss coming to Typhoon. Thanks for everything!
I feel like I got ripped off for having the consideration to visit this restaurant during its last days. The food was OK but the service was terrible. Entrees came out first. Appetizers dribbled out over the next 2 hours at a glacial pace until we just decided to give up. One of my friends was so incensed he just walked out.
The right thing to do would have been to offer a discount. A sorry for your trouble. We had problems tonight. Nothing. No consideration. Perhaps it's best that this place is going out of business
This historic iconic landmark at the Santa Monica Airport will be closing on 11.8.16 due to the City of Santa Monica running tenants off the airport. We have enjoyed this restaurant for years and yesterday was no exception. The food was very tasty, the service attentive and the view enjoyable. It is a shame private pilots will not have this restaurant to enjoy after tomorrow.
A wonderful place to have a great dinner, a glass of good wine, and watch airplanes takeoff and land.
Great place to view take off and landing of small aircraft! Music good when available but please replace the dirty worn curtains with plastic bags tied around them and remove the dirty strips of cloth hanging from the ceiling as you go to restroom area. Even if you can't afford new replacements toss the old worn out eye sores...
I hesitate to recommend as is otherwise love the location, view, music and menu!
The restaurant is closing its doors on November 8, 2016. Too bad that the Santa Monica government has succeeded in driving out yet another business from the Santa Monica airport. Typhoon is a unique institution that will be missed.
Food was good, but it took forever for me to get my order,
The quality of the food and the entertainment were great. A fun environment! It turned out the waiter forgot to put in our order. We patiently waited for over 30 mins for our appetizers (oyster shooters & squid) before calling him over. Finally received oysters on the half shell only, w/ the squid being served with the meal. We had ordered string beans to come with the meal which he never served. I cancelled them when we were half way through our main course. Our waters were also never refilled during the two and a half hours that we dined. Looking on the bright side we did enjoy the Beatunes and the delicious food that we DID receive. Just request a different server if you end up with Carlos as I now regret leaving the tip that I did. He certainly did NOT earn it.
One of my favorites. Sorry to see it's closing soon.
We've been coming to Typhoon's for many years now but haven't been in a while and were a little excited about reacquainting ourselves with one of our favorite eateries. Sadly, we were very disappointed with the changes to the menu, presentation of familiar dishes and the taste of the food had declined. Typhoon's is in a great location and is ideal for dinner and drinks with a date or with friends, lm sorry to say no one in our party of 4 will be back. On a good note, our servers Lupe and Filemone, were both attentive and a pleasure to have around. They really made a disappointing evening with friends a lot better.
