We had the eye fillet and the New York cooked medium. Absolutely outstanding tender and tasty. We had 2 sides the sweet potato fries and farmer's market corn, both very tasty. We ordered 2 glasses of Stray which accompanied the steaks well. Cost USD 165.

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
