I was anticipating a lot of people at the restaurant for a Saturday brunch but there were only a few tables occupied. We had a table on the upper level, which provided a nice view of Santa Monica beach but that was the only good thing about Ocean & Vine. I had ordered the omelet, which came with a choice of 3 items with potatoes and toast. The omelet was just average and it was nothing to write home about. I could have gotten it elsewhere and paid less but this was at a hotel with a view. The worse thing was having to pay for valet parking. The restaurant validated our parking but we still had to pay $10 or so for the privilege of eating at a hotel. This is a bad policy of Lowes and we probably won't come back because of this.
