This is a lovely restaurant with views of the water (across the street) and the service was very good. I was disappointed in the steak, however. My steak was over $50 and for that price I expect excellence. I asked for my steak to be...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
