Wilshire Reviews List

Wilshire

Designer Thomas Schoos created a warm distinctive ambiance while taking advantage of the unique spaces on the property. Each room makes an individual statement retaining the “old world” character of this historic space or capturing a more modern sensibility. The main dining room features plush leather banquettes and antique mirrors enhanced by candlelight while the indoor bar has coffered ceilings, club chairs and a softly lit amber bar. The spacious outdoor garden, bar and private terrace are surrounded by rich chocolate stucco walls accented with fireplaces and water features. The dining area seats 100 and the terrace may inspire an indulgent dessert or a fine Cognac nightcap.

"It's a truth universally acknowledged that a person in want of a delicious meal , attended by well trained wait staff is in need of a trip to " Wilshire." The Lobster salad was fresh and very tasty ,nicely accompanied by the ginger ice tea! "A good fortune" is not necessary to dine here."

"Dependable, Delicious and Delightful. I have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed once. My favorite dish is the lobster cobb - -looks as good as it tastes, although everything I saw served looked wonderful. Sit inside or out in a garden setting. You can count on servers being eager to please and the personnel being very accommodating. Valet parking."

"Went for Valentine's Day and it was a let down. We have dined at Wilshire a lot over the past few years and this time the service was good but our food wasn't even hot...we just wanted to finish and go. It feels like it's declined over the past year or so...
Probably won't go back."

"Excellent food and service. Ambiance a bit wide-open and convivial, a bit impersonal. Pretty pricey, especially the wine--few good options under $100 though with skill and searching we found a very good Spanish one for $75. Nicest thing is that it's kid-friendly--we were without kids but enjoyed seeing a lot there. A fine place for inland Santa Monica--great local restaurant."

"I had never been to Wilshire and was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, food and the service. Most importantly, as I was there for a business meeting, we were so delighted that we could hold a conversation and hear each other!"

"I've been to Wilshire for dinner several times and every time it's been excellent. The patio area is charming and everyone loves the space and food. The menu has a nice selection of options -- I've had the chicken, salmon and black cod and they were all delicious. The flat bread is a nice starter. It's one of my favorite places in the Santa Monica area."

"I don't usually write restaurant reviews, but this was my second visit to The Wilshire (first time was for a private party in the Library room which was so wonderful as well!). Again my mother and I were not disappointed in the slightest, and brought my two friends with us as well. We were actually 15 minutes late for our reservation but the host and hostess were very accommodating and we only had to wait about 10 minutes at the bar until they were able to seat us regardless. The patio was so beautiful, I hadn't seen it before, and we had plenty of space even though it was full out there. I had the special of night, brown butter scallops, that were massive and delicious! The Fiery Mai Tai drink was great once again, and our server was so helpful and patient even with my friend who is vegan and asked a plethora of questions and had many substitutions for her vegetarian burger. Thank you so much, I will be back! Hopefully for a romantic date with my boyfriend next time!"

"We had not been at Wilshire for quite some time and decided to try it out again. We were disappointed by the quality of the food - tuna appetizer was flavorless, shortribs and lamb chops were extremely fatty, and price was high for the quality of food we received. Will not go back again."
