Can I get a box for this?


The Lobster

 1602 Ocean Ave
Santa Monica, CA

Pricey but good

Nice restaurant over looking the ocean and the pier. I was able to find street parking 2 blocks away. My boyfriend and I were seated right by the window. I was cold because I felt the wind come through the window, so I switched seats with my boyfriend. It was a little better.

I really liked the bread and olive oil. The bread was warm and toasted and the olive oil had chives in it which gave it a unique flavor. The two of us shared a crab cake appetizer, clam chowder, and a 2.5 lb lobster.

The busboy spilled my boyfriend’s wine. I think a little bit got on him. He was just given a new glass of wine.

Although the restaurant is a bit pricey, I would probably come back for a special occasion. It’s also a good tourist spot.

Grilled Lobster

My boyfriend and I shared a 2.5 lb grilled lobster. It was excellent. There was already so much flavor that you don’t even need to dip it in butter. The 2.5 lobster was $60.

Clam Chowder

The clam chowder was good but not worth $10. The portion is large enough to share.

Crab Cake Appetizer
