Too noisy!! Had to shout at each other to be heard.
The food was amazing and our waiter Jeffery provided excellent service. The ambiance the scenery was breathtaking and picture perfect. Definitely would recommend this location to anyone. Perfect place for a day date, get together with friends, or a chill day to have drinks.
Food was delicious. We were there to try their DineLA menu. It offered nice options; however, the main courses were delivered while we were eating our delicious appetizers. We were served only 1 dessert; even though, we ordered 2, and were charged the a la carte prices instead of the DineLA special price. The server, who was very pleasant, made the adjustment after we brought it to his attention.
Awesome bottomless brunch for my birthday celebration!
Great date great views!
Waitress was had attitude and then was inattentive. $25 corkage but then never came back to refill our glasses. Waited 20min for the check after we asked for it and the restaurant was not busy. Food was good but did not come out hot. The outside patio seating was great
Nice outdoor seating and good for a big group.
Food service was slow, but our waiter was still great even though there must have been an issue in the kitchen.
A tad on the pricey side, considering all the options; still, a great date spot with good selection.
We had one of the worst waiters ever, and we dine out a lot.
Great rooftop ambiance in an outdoor mall setting. Dinner menu excellent but somewhat limited. Ordered 3 glasses of wine, one appetizer, and one dinner, which was enough for the two of us. Check was about $100 with tax, not including tip. Supposedly they have a good Happy Hour but did not verify.
Very nice and quiet restaurant (but maybe because we went for lunch on a Monday). Food was fresh and delicious; the beetroot cured salmon is outstanding. They didn't bring any bread to the table so we asked for some and we received "Olives & Sourdough herbs, olive oil, Clark St. fresh bread", one of the appetizers ($ 7.00). Although a bit surprised, it was no problem for us (the warm olives in the olive oil with rosemary were really good) but just so that you know that you will not get a basket of sliced bread. A nice place to go when in Santa Monica, but I am not sure it is always that nice during the weekends!
The staff was friendly, and the food delicious! Definitely will return.
Birthday dinner with a group of friends. Very cute location and the food was good. Great wine selection
Visited in June, ordered the duck breast, asked hostess how did they cook it, she replied “ in the oven”, didn’t seem too enthusiastic. I wouldn’t recommend.
Excellent steak frites in a lovely setting! Great energy. Beautiful patio.
Did it go under new management? This place was really loud like could not even talk , the waiter was not around and the food was subpar I do not remember this being my experience the previous times I went I would go back but not right away it was overall an ok experience
Outside seating is not guaranteed even with a reservation, but we didn't know that and only wanted to sit outside. We were escorted to an indoor table by the manager but expressed that we were only seeking an outdoor reservation. He told us that it's never guaranteed with a reservation but left us for a moment and came back to tell us he found us a table outside. Amazing customer service! We even tried to tip him for it and he refused it!
Our 2nd time there and it was better. Got 2 meals and then about 5 minutes later the other 2.
Great rooftop restaurant with good wine and whiskey selection. Gas flame heaters give the location a nice ambience and the open air allows the sound to escape, providing a quieter atmosphere than many other restaurants in the area.
Food quality is ok....definitely overpriced. I expected more of a romantic scenery not the rooftop of a mall.
Al was great, gave us ocean view table... great birthday meal
We were with our kids and the service was incredibly helpful and friendly. Pizza was delicious!
Amazing service. Bottomless mimosas. And excellent food.
Amazing service! Loved the food and the ambiance
Food and service were uninspiring. It's a nice rooftop space, but you can't really see much of a view because there are other tall buildings in the way. It's bright and open, and we were able to comfortably sit outside even though it was a rainy and cold night, because there are awnings and heat lamps. The drinks were fine, nothing memorable, but a little on the pricey side. Their wine selection was weak for a "wine garden." I asked the waiter if they had any Reisling, and he said "no" and walked away abruptly. I was thinking he might offer a suggestion or something, but I didn't even have the opportunity to ask.
A nice setting on the top floor of Santa Monica place with a great view and very good service. Unfortunately, one of the worst pizzas ever and the melon salad also way below average. Would not recommend it with so many other choices out there.
We had a lovely time at Sonoma Wine Garden. Everything was perfect. We will definitely be back and it will go our list of places to bring guests who come into town.
Sat right next to the window with a view! My mother and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Location is prime.
Service was a bit slow but it was Mother’s Day so I understand
I came here for Mother's Day brunch, and it was so lively with fun music and a dj later in the afternoon. I loved how you can sit outside, but it's covered with drapes and things to stay out of the direct sun. The food was yummy and their wine selection was great too. I'm definitely coming back!
Waitress was rude- we sat with sun shining in eyes so badly we were blinded by it- asked to move and it was like we were ones at fault. Waitress was unfriendly & looked like she hated her job- too bad- it was my friends birthday but the experience was less than adequate.
The service was great! The ambience is very good, it’s a place that makes you want to stay, have another drink and keep chatting. The food is tasty. My chicken didn’t cook all the way through, but it was promptly corrected. Nice place!
Manager was good, service was horrible, food ehh. Won’t go back.
Great service, good food, nice ambiance.
It was a great brunch!
Great weekend brunch vibe. Wonderful DJ and bottomless mimosas is a score!
Great and very tasty restaurant. The brunch is great and offers good bottomless mimosas that are refilled often.
Great service and beautiful ambiance. Feels like you're on vacation.
Nice outdoor setting. Appetizers were good.
The service was great, food was great, and the vibes were even better. All around a great time celebrating my friend’s birthday! Will definitely be back!
