Seafood | Santa Monica, Westside

Visiting from the east coast, to see our daughter. We passed the Resturant on the way to the beach. We are glad we found it, the food was excellent. We had tuna tartar, oysters, steamed clams, and lobster bisque, for appetizers. The best bisque I have ever eaten, served with puff pastry topping. We also had the whole lobster and grilled mahi mahi, Everything was cooked perfectly. Wish I remembered out servers name, he also did an exceptional job. When we return again we will make this out first fancy dinner stop, you do not have to go to the promenade to find a 5 star Resturant. We did eat at many good places this week, I will say this was our favorite. Too many good Resturant’s in Sant Montica, you need to stay three months to hit them all. More

Great view of the Marina when you set on the patio area. Food was tasty even though some of the lunch items on the menu seemed a little overprice such as salmon for $31. I had the cobb salad for lunch and it was very good. More
