"It was a good experience. Just a couple of minor improvements. It would have been nicer if it were a bit more dimly lit and I don't think the fire pit was lit. That would have helped ambiance.
Also, our waiter would not attend to us as often/quickly as I would have liked. Especially considering the fact that there weren't many people dining at the time we were there."

"This was Easter brunch and it was excellent. Starting with better than average sparkling wine, to great seafood (although missed the oysters that were on the past brunches). Good buffet items even if less than usual. Only two misses, the roast beef was medium well to well and the eggs Benedict had stiff muffins. Oh well."

"We had a couple issues with our reservation that night. First and foremost, I was trying to call them about 30 minutes before our reservation time to let them know we would be about 10 minutes late. No one took the call. When we got there, we got a decent table, but it took a good 10 minutes before the server came to get our drink order. Then it took a good 15-20 minute to try and call the server down to place our food orders. Forget asking him any questions regarding the food or the orders. I had questions regarding what could or could not be made vegetarian but ended up getting just getting some appetizers, instead of any entrees because I was not sure. The food came out fairly quick (10 minutes) but it was very mediocre. For the price I paid and the ambiance of the restaurant, you'd expect better, more gourmet food. That was not the case. It was very hard to get a hold of the server after that but they were fairly quick in bringing the check. I was disappointed. Even the view was not great, though. We had a bunch of electric poles and wires blocking the view of the ferris wheel. Unfortunately, I will not be returning."

"It wasn't clear from the website, but it appeared that on Sunday they had brunch items through the lunch hour - not. That disappointment aside, the food was delicious! The fish tacos are great - the fish is not fried, thank goodness, and you get 3. Very moist and tasty. The mushroom -arugula pizza was a large size, could have been split. The view from inside on this cold day was still great. Try it if you haven't. Validated valet parking was $7, but where can you park in Santa Monica anymore anyway!"

"We went to Ocean and Vine for Brunch to celebrate a birthday. The food was great, the view was great and the service was outstanding, but the restaurant was almost empty. My friends and I had a great time, but the atmosphere was rather drab due to the lack of patrons."

"We were bidding some good Japanese farewell after their year of study in the US. We wanted them to experience the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean one last time from the North American shore. We chose Ocean and Vine because of the marvelous view and delectable menu options. We were not disappointed! And the servers were attentive but not over-bearing."

"We went there for dinner once and we really liked it. This time we went for "brunch" and were told we couldn't have a breakfast menu but they had a buffet going (only $49.00)or we could order off the lunch menu. So we ordered off the lunch menu. My husband had some kind of turkey?club sandwich with terrible fries, I had a salad it wasn't good and our daughter and her friend had food that they liked somewhat. We were just at Bacara who has fabulous food so to come to another high end hotel and have lack luster not even good food was very disappointing!
We will stick with the Huntley (we are locals) for brunch.
It does have a great view of the ocean!!!
Maybe sit at the bar??

"Little thought seems to have been expended in designing this restaurant. A good deal of it is off the lobby in a completely unappealing set up with windows out to the beach. Another portion is on a balcony and a sort of helter-skelter indoor area, both of which were blocked off for Saturday brunch due to a private event. Inviting décor has been totally ignored in the nook off the lobby with plain wood chairs and tables, all lined up with no nod to inviting placement. The hostess was basically disinterested in the fact we had a reservation and caused problems with open table dining points because she was not working with a list of any sort. The food was average, without innovation. Service was slow and almost non-professional. A huge disappointment for a setting which could have been spectacular, considering the backdrop of ocean views and beach."

"We met up from various locations in So Cal and wanted to spend relaxing family time catching up. The brunch spread was wonderful and suited a whole range of tastes, diets and ages in our party--great choices for all. We enjoyed attentive but not intrusive service and the staff really worked to anticipate our needs and accommodated a couple special requests. We'll be coming back!"

"The valet had some confusion in where to get us a ticket for just having dinner and not being a hotel guest. The waiter was friendly but after waiting more than 15 minutes for our check when we were done eating we had to ask the maitre d to find him for us. The food was disappointing, I had the 12oz New York Filet and the quality of beef was poor. My boyfriend had the crab spahgetti and it was very bland with hardly any crab in it. We then had another bad experience trying to get our car back at the valet. The view and ambiance is beautiful, but we won't go back."
