Hotel Oceana Santa Monica

849 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica, California
4 reviews

Designer Anthony Baratta drew out the property’s mid-century roots by ditching the Mediterranean palette in exchange for SoCal hues, Mad Men–era furniture, and Calder-inspired chandeliers. The refreshed hotel reopened in March 2013, complete with restaurant Tower 8, where Santa Monica native and Michelin-starred chef Josiah Citrin emphasizes southern California cuisine like ahi tuna tartare and avocado mousseline as well as ...

    Father's Office

    0.7 mi from Hotel Oceana Santa Monica
    50 reviews

    Seriously great burgers here, cooked to perfection exactly the way you order them. I was prepared for this bar to be completely over-hyped, but nope. It really does make awesome food, and the list of microbrews from around California, North America, Europe and beyond is killer. What's not to love? A side of brussel sprouts that costs $8. Yup, it's ...

    Umami Burger

    0.9 mi from Hotel Oceana Santa Monica
    43 reviews

    When in Santa Monica, look for the Fred Segal and you'll come across this Umami location. They've got their own parking lot, which is pretty rare for LA and totally awesome. Wait times can get crazy, so be prepared. I almost never eat hamburgers, so I opted for the Greenbird. I love sprouts and avocado, so this was the perfect ...

    Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery

    0.99 mi from Hotel Oceana Santa Monica

    Santa Monica’s unassuming Bay Cities Italian Deli is best known for giant sandwiches with names like The Godmother. But it’s the deli’s eight-cheese mac that L.A. Weekly singles out as the area’s number one dish of its kind. If you choose to battle the shop’s long lunch lines, be sure to order the baked version—fans on Yelp warn the macaroni ...

    The Lobster

    0.96 mi from Hotel Oceana Santa Monica
    17 reviews

    I battled the Herb Grilled American Lobster and it won by a giant claw. I'm pretty sure even a 200lb man would find that 2.5 pound crustacean difficult to manage. The garlicky butter it was grilled in was awesomesauce, and I'm certain it is the only way to go if you're here for the lobster. Oh, how I wanted to ...

    Oh, you so fancy! DINE LA Restaurant Week Located at the top of the Huntley Hotel, The Penthouse restaurant has beautiful views of the beach & the city of Santa Monica.

    The food was wonderful but they rushed you way too much. I felt I was eating the equivalent of Mexican that was Asian..the service was good and if looking for excellent food and a fast meal this is for you. If looking for romance don't go there

    I've only had a chance to come to this place on the weekends, but I have always been impressed by the food. They have a really good duck corn beef hash and egg, chocolate bread pudding, and brisket. I personally haven't had the salads, but my girlfriend has and she finds them to be refreshing and light. The only downside ...

    This place is a Santa Monica gem - love coming here! All vegetarian, but you would never guess. A super creative menu offering amazing dishes of all sorts that leave you feeling great when you leave. Very casual (more of a lunch place) but definitely worth a try. There is another one in Beverly Hills

    Fritto Misto

    11 reviews

    Before my recent visit to Fritto Misto, if you had asked me where one can get really good Italian food in Los Angeles for a reasonable price, I would have given you a blank stare and then would have proceeded to convince you to try a more non-traditional cuisine, like Burmese or Indonesian. Why? Because I got pretty tired of ...

    Veggie burger was great. Very different in a good way. It doesn't come with any sides though, so if you want fries etc. you'll need to order them separately. Friendly service and nice ambience.

    Rustic Canyon Wine Bar

    0.88 mi from Hotel Oceana Santa Monica

    Everything is fresh/local ingredients. Great assortment of options on the menu. Place gets packed every night...make your reservation in advance! The staff clearly love working there. Every server is very knowledgeable about the extensive wine/beer list. Dark/candle lit ambiance, but lively crowd.

    Spent a fortune on Japanese Premium Wagyu Steak... and it was a disappointment. I ordered Medium Rare and they brought out a Medium. It was a bit on a dry side and I just wanted to drench it in A1 steak sauce... Maybe I should've just gone for a regular ribeye :( my friend had it and it was better ...

    I came to this bar/restaurant/music venue for a performance of The Moth, a story slam event that takes place in various venues across LA. While I feel that Busby's East was a better venue for this kind of thing, Zanzibar had a nice vibe to it and I would definitely come back for a concert or a low-key evening with ...

    I came here a few months ago for a special event (Chuckfest). The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff was very pleasant. They had a decent selection of wines and other beverages and their food was pretty tasty. If you are looking to hold a special event in Santa Monica, you should consider holding it here.
