Great staff & service and the food is simply outstanding. I eat here whenever we visit from Australia and am never disappointed. The steak here is always 10 out of 10 but I drifted and tried the chicken last week and was equally blown away....More

Lovely food, great service and good atmosphere. We shared the tomahawk steak for 2 which was beautifully cooked. The baked potato and mac n cheese sides were also great. Service was very attentive but not intrusive. Would highly recommend.

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

As mentioned by others it is an adult restuarant but I have seen children there early in the evening. I would suggest keeping your reservation before 7pm..
