Well, the location is uniquely nice. This restaurant should qualify for "fine dining" but it does not. By far. Food is overpriced and very average. The Cesar salad at $16 could be found at $4 and fresher at other places. Halibut served with bacon is...More

This place has an old world feel, due to the wooden floors, simple decor, somewhat reminiscent of an upmarket New England/ Cape Cod interiors shop. Sorry, still with me? Anyway, it's a nice room, and our smart waiter's appearance and conversation was the perfect complement....More

Delicious food, a wide selection of great wines, superb service and a fantastic setting. Ask for a table with views of Santa Monica's beach and Pier. So good, we came back for seconds two nights later and were equally impressed.
