When the chefs at Ocean & Vine say they specialize in Californian cuisine, they mean that literally. The produce comes from Central Valley farms, the wines come from surrounding vineyards, and the seafood comes from the Pacific coast. Today's Reserve selection invites you taste their distinctly Californian dishes with a choice of the following options:

  • Three-course prix fixe dinner for two
  • Three-course prix fixe dinner for four

Each person receives their choice of one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert from the prix fixe menu.

As the local landscape awakens to spring, the kitchen adds bright, zippy flavors to the menu starting with the appetizers. The Santa Monica Farmers Market greens salad, for example, is an edible bouquet of deep-green leaves with grilled butternut squash, maple-toasted pecans, and a camembert fritter under a glaze of cranberry vinaigrette. Capers and fennel pollen fleck a salmon flatbread, and herbs infuse the butter-bathed Pacific blue mussels. An earthier sensibility marks entrees, from the yukon potatoes mashed with Pacific lobster that add heft to the California sea bass to the last bites of Coastal Organics Farms’ winter harvest that fill the Tehachapi roast-beet-and-butternut ravioli.

Plated with elaborate whimsy, desserts are likely to resemble botanical curiosities more than the junk food their names—baked s’mores, peanut-butter oreo bars—would suggest. Others take their inspiration from savory foods: in warm apple lasagna, layers of caramel-apple custard, candied walnuts, and vanilla and caramel ice cream alternate with tender pasta sheets.

Diners take this all in from a classically Californian white and blond-wood dining room with big arched windows, anchoring the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. They might pull up a seat on Ocean & Vine's patio, which lends stirring views of the ocean and Santa Monica Pier, or around a circular table with flames rising in the center, enjoying the warmth of the fire pit with a relaxing glass of wine.

Creative Cooking

This local sensibility comes with a serving of whimsy, as evidenced by the Santa Monica chili appetizer, which marries unexpected ingredients such as shrimp and scallops with roasted garlic and fava beans. The entrees also bear out this eclectic flair with plates such as chili pineapple mahi mahi and pizza topped with beef short rib and onion-bacon jam.
