If you live in the neighborhood and have a night to kill with your better half, this place is worth a visit at least once. their outside courtyard is really nice and the design of the place is second to none. Unfortunately, the food is not to the same standard. Well prepared and good ingredients....just nothing that makes you want... More

Eat on the patio! You feel like you could be in Santa Barbara, Carmel, or Santa Monica, where it is. The ambience is wonderful, plenty of outdoor heaters and fireplaces. Twinkly lights on all the trees. A beautiful surroundings for a delicious meal. I had the braised short ribs, and the pieces fell off my fork. Delicious puree of carrots... More

Lovely restaurant. We sat on the patio which is great as described in other reviews. Food was delicious. I had the short rib pasta which was great. Staff could not do enough for us, even sorted pizzas out for the children, which are only on the bar menu. Highly recommend this restaurant

The Wilshire Restaurant had a cool vibe – ask for the patio. It’s a open air space within the restaurant's walls, not off the street, so it feels intimate. It was late so the lights were dim, there were fully grown trees wrapped in christmas lights and sail shades added to the ambiance. The menu is California with a mix... More

Read great reviews about the food here and really looked forward to the Luncheon we were having, to hear author Delia Ephron speak from 12 to 2pm two days ago. We sat at our table -12:00pm all ready, then 12:30, 12;45, 1:00, 1:30 and still nothing. I asked the waitress if I could have a take home box as I... More

We booked this restaurant as it had won awards but seriously I do not see how. Staff are attentive and polite, venue dated although the patio area is nice it is just a yard with lights. Very dimly lit and food very average. Expensive for nothing special.

This charming restaurant has a different atmosphere depending where you are seated. We always sit outside which retains an intimate atmosphere because of its use of shade sails. The service is attentive and the food delicious. Last night I had some black cod with bok choy that I feel I could eat every day and still enjoy it.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
