The Grille Prime Cheeseburger was recommended to me by a friend. Wow was this amazing. A toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, not one by two juicy beef patties topped with their signature sloppy sauce and melty cheese dripping down the sides....More

It was our first night in Santa Monica and the kids were hungry for a burger! It was amazing, they said! The grown ups had steaks which were fine along with wine! It was an ok dinner, nothing to brag about it.

Ask for Nicole to be your server. One of the best we have ever had! Friendly, knowledgeable, attentive. The food was also very good. I'd recommend the NY Sirloin -- perfectly cooked and prime meat. Also, the chicken in the oven is very good.

Our Texan server was knowledgeable and friendly (and also skilled at the upsell). Good wine selection, even if pricey. Others in my party enjoyed the twin fillet special immensely. Our large group was easily accommodated with a reservation. Beautiful location. Two thumbs up.

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
