We stayed at the Lowes Hotel on vacation and had breakfast twice here. Service was friendly and prompt. Coffee was served quickly. The food was very good. Recommend the traditional eggs Benedict and for sure the home granola yogurt dish. Prices are reasonable.

i enjoyed the food at the restaurant and the staff was extremely helpful. I liked the views of the beach but i did not find the restaurant to be cozy. I wish they would remodel this restaurant to make it more inviting. The mussels in coconut milk were yummy. The brussel sprout salad was another one of my favorites.

Christmas day brunch for small family. Good selection but they have much more for their Easter offering. The usual omelette and carved meat stations with bakery & salad options. Beautiful view across the water.

We ate here twice for breakfast and once for dinner. For the most part, the food is fabulous. You can't go wrong. Very fresh. A Brussels sprout salad for dinner was so wonderful AND filling that I couldn't eat my delicious fish entree. For breakfast, bacon is good enough (not the best ever, but not the worst either). Eggs are... More

Ate a mid afternoon lunch and breakfast here, as we were staying at the Loews. The food is good, the breakfast buffet is excellent and we aren't buffet people, usually. The staff while pleasant is very understaffed and simply not up to the standards that this hotel should be, due the cost and could be because the property is very... More

We had dinner here while staying at the hotel. Mainly because of the nice terrace and beach view. Menu is not large, but we found a few things we'd like and we were not disappointed. Food was really good, expect dessert which we found too sweet. The whole experience was however totally ruined by very slow service, which they actually... More

The restaurant in the Loews Hotel is a great place to either start your day, interrupt you day or complete your day. We found the Food very agreeable and the selection was very diverse. We had a fantastic gentleman named Jose each time we dined and he made our meals even more enjoyable. The Wine list is just OK but... More

Made a reservation 10 days in advance of Valentines Day through open table before traveling from East Coast. The restaurant actually called us back wanting a credit card stating that if we did not show up, they would charge our card. My husband asked that we get a table near a window for a view.

The service here was very spotty and inattentive. The spinach salad was warmer than the fish in the main course. Too bad, as it may have been delicious if it wasn't cold.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
