The food and service are both amazing. Great ocean-side view. A perfect location for a business or personal gathering.

Came here for Valentines Day. The atmosphere was very romantic and relaxing, not overcrowded at all. All staff were very friendly and helpful. I was even escorted to the restroom, when I asked where it was, and had my coat held open for me (not just handed to me).

My girlfriend and I shared the smaller porterhouse, which was tender and flavorful. We also had the lobster mashed potatoes, which had big, yummy chunks of lobster. The Kumamoto oysters and crab claws were delicious and fresh! I also enjoyed the warm butter cake for dessert.

This seems to be a local favourite and I get it. It has a wonderful view of the pier, the beach and the ocean, and it has a great vibe and good food. Busy on a Saturday night, I would definitely recommend.

Unbelievable views, great happy hour, and always consistently good seafood. Must try at least once when in Santa Monica.
