Lovely wine garden at the Santa Monica Place Mall. It has atmosphere, interesting beer selections, California cuisine and of course wine.
Perfect First Date Spot – My friend and I went here for a blind date through a matchmaking company and fell in love with the place. If you haven't been to the santa monica place mall since they have remodeled, you absolutely have to. Fantastic view, cool automatic wine machines to have a taste of this or that and great service. It's our new fav place to go in Santa Monica.
A little taste of wine country... – I've been here for lunch and dinner and had great food and service both times. The servers can give great wine recommendations and they have a lot of options by the glass and bottle. The food is definitely California cuisine - fresh, healthy and light.
The outdoor deck is a great place to hang out when the weather is nice, and sometimes the mall has live music that you can listen to on Fridays.
Try the gazpacho if they have it, it's amazing!
Note: Bring a sweater or jacket in the evening, it can get breezy up there and the heat lamps sometimes aren't enough.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Just a few blocks from the beach, this indoor/outdoor restaurant on the top floor of the Santa Monica Place mall is where to get a little taste of Wine Country without leaving Southern California. On sunny days and warm nights, guests head to the outdoor patio overlooking the ocean and promenade to leisurely sip whites and reds. (There are about 20 offered by the glass.) Mallgoers clad in sun dresses and linen pants order up small plates of prosciutto and cheese, fried polenta served with creme fraiche, truffle fries topped with parmesan and parsley. Linguini with prosciutto and saffron nage, and grilled albacore with shaved fennel and orange are also on the menu.
