Ocean & Vine, Santa Monica, CA

Ocean & Vine Restaurant Review

: Ocean & Vine at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel has contemporary style and great views of the ocean and the Ferris wheel on the Santa Monica pier. Modern paintings and mobiles adorn the walls, while a centered fire pit filled with white glass brings life to the room. Eclectic dishes offer a wide range of appetizers: hamachi crudo, dandelion greens with beets and speck, and charred Brussels sprouts with chicories; seared scallops with caramelized pear; and a lighter version of chili with shrimp, crab and fava beans. Mains are cohesive, with steamed mussels with green curry, crab risotto with English peas, rack of lamb, and bucatini with arugula pesto. Desserts include a peach crostata, lemon verbena panna cotta and brownie cake. If you’re inclined, enjoy your dessert or a nightcap around the fire. A concise wine list focuses on California vintners, specifically.
