“Lovely Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The Sonoma Wine Garden sits on the 3rd floor of the Santa Monica Mall at 2nd Street. It rambles delightfully around a good half of the upstairs, providing seating locations for almost anyone's taste, both inside and out. They boast an extensive wine list, and full bar. We enjoy their Sunday brunch with unlimited and flavored mimosas, an exciting menu of delicious entrees, and of course the fabulous fresh air coming from the beach. Sophisticated but casual.

“Great views”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The decor of this place is VERY cool Lots of different seating levels. You don't feel like you are on top of the mall. Loved this gorgeous place and the margherita pizza is really good

“Great dining spot near the beach in Santa Monica”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Really delicious food and excellent wine flights in a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere about a block from the Santa Monica Pier. My daughter and I shared a cheese plate, some truffle fries, and a margherita pizza, and I tried the California wine flight (one white, a pinot noir, and a cabernet savignon - and surprisingly huge portions!). Great service and a wonderful experience all around.
