Wonderful brunch! The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. I will make sure to come back to this restaurant when I am in town. The view was beautiful and well worth the money.

We really like this place and the ambiance, but just wish they had a few more vegetarian food options. Otherwise the vibe and bottomless mimosas are awesome! Also the margherita pizza is very good. On Sunday the Dj was playing really good music.

Beautiful night! Ambiance is beyond gorgeous! The Sauvignon Blanc was amazing! I just had a salad, so I can’t say much about the food! But, my beet salad was very good. Service was very good!
I will definitely be back!! 😊

First time going with a reservation. Usually, we sit at the bar. We had brunch on Labor Day. Great food, and a great deal with bottomless mimosas too. Our waiter was great, the DJ was great. All in all, a great time.

We decided to try the new free music that was offered on Saturday night in the one room. Unfortunately, you can tell it is new. It needs work- the atmosphere is not very inviting( please dim the lights) and the room is too open- it needs to somehow to be closed off from the rest of the restaurant. We will give it another try the next time we are back in town. We do love sitting at the bar for happy hour!

We enjoyed the meal and the table. At the time of booking, I indicated it was a birthday lunch. Unfortunately our server, did not bring a complementary birthday dessert even after one of us mentioned it to her away from the table. Instead, after we paid the bill, she brought a dessert menu, apologized that she did not add a chosen dessert and IT’S PRICE to the bill and did we want to order something?

My girlfriend ordered a goat cheese and beets salad, which was supposed to be her whole dinner. However, we were served a salad with greens, some beets and no more than 5 grams of grated (goat?) cheese. We complained and were told they ran out of goat cheese that day. However, they should have told us before we ordered instead of trying us to serve a different dish. The server was very arrogant as he told us we should thank him cause they removed the salad (which my girlfriend didn’t eat) from the bill. On top of this, my fettuccini were full of garlic while that was not written in the menu. A very disappointing experience overall

Hi there. We came for brunch and our server was lovely. The eggs benedict was pretty bland, and horribly undercooked. I'm used to runny yolks, but not super runny whites with a thin layer of cooked white outside. No salt or pepper anywhere in site, no seasoning, and a pretty sad showing all the way around. Even the diet coke tasted off. My friend had a G&T that was pretty dismal as well, or I would have ordered a cocktail too...

Took 45 minutes to get a glass of wine. Very slow service. Nice patio but loud. Food was okay but overpriced for the quality.

Had a wonderful time for the first hour of the 2 hour brunch special. The waiter then got in the weeds and neglected us for over 30 minutes with requests from our table outstanding. He then brought the checks and encouraged us that our two hour window was expiring. Did not seem fair, then unprompted the manager came to our table to encourage us to leave as well. A shame because we were certainly not a rowdy table and because we had not been met with the fine service we were promised. Will not be returning unfortunately based on this experience with this particular manager.

Hello WWIII, I'm sincerely sorry you felt rushed. Unfortunately your table had dined for over 2.5 hours and was preventing the reservation booked after you from enjoying brunch as well. We offerend complimentary drinks to your entire party at the bar to prolong your experience while accomedating other guests in hopes to help mediate any frustrations.

My cousin and I met for drinks after work. We arrived maybe 20 or 25 mins early but were still seated right away! The table we were seated at was a little too sunny and we were moved to another table with no issue. The food and drinks were good, our waiter was good, the night was enjoyable!

It was a great place for a big party to meet in Santa Monica- being at the mall there was lots of parking. Unfortunately there is only a peak-a boo view of the ocean as buildings are in the way. It was a bit pricey for a mall restaurant but the food was good.

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.
