Summer House Santa Monica
Great meal. Looking forward to going back again soon!
It's really good a must try !!
Just an awesome experience. Fantastic drink selection, great appetizers and the food was out of this world.
The food is good but not worth the pri e
Great experience! Awesome food and atmosphere!
I always love going to Summer House. It is hard to get a table a lot of the time so I always suggest making a reservation. I've been there for lunch and dinner now and I am always satisfied. The drinks are always fabulous and the food always tastes so fresh! Love taking people here from out of town to get in a fancy dining experience. Gorgeous place too!
We love it here. Very child friendly so you can enjoy more upscale food and plenty of options for children.
Other than the salad all the meals were bad and the fish has a bug in it!
Night out with my wife. Service was friendly but slow. Noise level was high and energetic, Food was good but not exceptional. Cobb salad was the best thing we had.
A fun-filled Lettuce Entertain You restaurant with good food and rather expensive drinks. It's
a short walk to several theaters and always busy.
I call this a slice of California in the conrete jungle of Chicago. GREAT service, food and an amazing vibe!
The night of our reservation, Summer House was slammed with huge parties who were really extending their meals. Our reservation time was not met but the wait staff and manager entirely made up for it by checking in frequently and making sure we were alright with a complimentary round of drinks and appetizer. What could have been a bad night, turned into such a nice time! Thank you summer house staff!!
First time foodies looking for a new restaurant and boom found it tonight!
Great customer service from your hostess to our server Mac. Mac made sure he knew we were new and talked us through speciality cocktails to your home deserts.
We were surprised to receive a thank you gift as first time patrons- looking forward to trying your English muffins in the morning!
Always a great time here! Our server was super sweet and nice.
Harken Chard was amazing; everyone loved their meals
My first time at SHSM and it was good. The seafood was fresh. The drinks were delicious. We went on a Sunday evening and it was really busy. Our server was great, however, it took a while to get our drinks. Our appetizers actually came before our drinks. The items are also expensive and you do not get a lot of food. Don't go there very hungry - you may not leave full or you may end up spending a lot of money on food.
Was with my boyfriend and my ex was serving us! It was great! My boyfriend said “thanks Dad!”
Highly overrated. Too expensive for what you get. Salmon/tuna appetizer barely had any of that. Mostly all cucumbers. $35 for halibut with salty mashed potatoes. Way over priced. Brussels sprouts tasty. Cookies were average. Definitely choose another restaurant.
There were 8 of us, Sat 20 minutes after reservation time. Entrees brought out separately over the course of 15 minutes. Some food was cold. Kitchen needs to get their act together.
food very slow to arrive. Server was good, but service poor for reasons beyond his control.
Waiter was very slow
Great atmosphere and customer energy even though we were seated at the high tables which are removed and away from the ambiance. I would not recommend this section to anyone. Food is good, but nothing extra ordinary. Service is a complete turn off. Servers are condescending and focus on turning a table. This is my seventh visit. I keep returning because it is the hip place to go and thinking my negative experience is just a one time occurrence. But it is not. Every single time I order something, request it twice and they never bring it. This time it was coffee. It feels like a sub conscious ploy to move us out quicker. We were in and out in 30 minutes. I love going to brunch. I have never been to a brunch where the entire experience only lasted 30 minutes. This time I was with my two cousins from England. It was a quite embarrassing.
Normally this place is great, but I got cheese on my burger when I had asked for no cheese. They missed the onion. They put a tomato on when I had asked for no tomato & they didn’t bring me the catchup and mustard until I asked another time. They also didn’t bring me my sweet potato tots until I asked for a second time as well. And I had to wait for my table despite having a reservation. The waiter was very nice and polite and they comped the burger, but they just didn’t have their act together this day.
The waitress was super sweet. The ambiance was beautiful. I felt like I had been transported to the west coast. And the fudge brownie warmed up with a scoop of ice cream was to die for!
I was really disappointed in Summer House. Food quality and amounts were way below average. Our waiter was slow and had the personality of a stick. We asked for bread and they charged us for a couple of small pieces of burnt sourdough on a plate. Come on Lettuce Entertain You--have you given up?
Their valet parking only accepts cash and it is $14. Thankfully, CITI bank is located across the street diagonally, I withdrew $20 from the bank and give all of them to the Valet assistant because it was 98 degree outside and they seemed working so hard. But I wish they can accept credit cards like most of valet parking services in downtown. Other than that, the food was great and the restaurant had really good vibes! You guys should try the restaurant! Their food is not too salty and they used very fresh natural ingredients- I can tell!
Delicious, fresh food. Great ambiance -- bright and cheerful!
Wonderful environment, energetic people and fabulous food !!!!
My fave ever!!!
Loved the vitamin d room
Lovely brunch, as always, with a perfect breeze on a sunny day at the edge of the patio.
Loved my gnocchi and chocolate cake! Great fun atmosphere. Would definitely recommend - particularly during good weather months!
Restaurant was beautiful. Waitress was nice but a little overworked. Food was not very good. Go for a drink but go elsewhere for the food.
We loved our dinner!
great brunch spot
Darling place! Great food! Amazing service. We have a very picky kid and he loved almost everything on the huge kid menu!
Never been. Great discovery and will definitely be returning. Beautiful space, good food, really nice service and reasonable $
Restaurant was an absolute Delight. I would most certainly come back again. Everything I ate was delicious and very flavorful. I would strongly recommend you try the brussel sprouts.
Awesome atmosphere! Nice service! Very tasty! Highly recommend this place!!!
