The Venue is beautifully modern yet elegant with a breathtaking view of the beach. A great place to take a date! Server could not have been more pleasant, fun and knowledgeable about the menu and wine.

This bright, airy and joyful Santa Monica bakery has a pastry case that will make your jaw drop, and sophisticated breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings too--try the brisket hash with arugula, and local line caught tuna with white beans and fingerlings. Thursdays are $30 prix fixe "family dinner" nights--check the website for updated menus.

One of the best places to get seafood in LA. The view is absolutely gorgeous. What a location. This isn't a casual seafood place, definitely somewhere to dress up a bit for.
