1212 Santa Monica
First time eating at 1212 Santa Monica. Food was delicious, service was great, ambiance outside was nice. We will return.
Love it, wish the music was a bit louder but overall great!
Great outdoor seating and amazing music! Best time !
My friends and I needed a place to go outside in SM to entertain a visiting colleague. I chose 1212 because they have a great happy hour menu and I had liked the food when I went there last year. We sat outside at one of the couch areas they set up and it was perfect. We were able to social distance and still be close enough to talk. We all enjoyed ourselves and the service we excellent and the food was tasty too. I feel they have done a good job creating a festive atmosphere during Covid and I would definitely go there again.
So much fun such good food
Fun atmosphere with good music
They environment the energy the service and the food was so good. Not to mention the drinks. I got to experience the outdoor seating on the promenade what an experience what a time thank you so much for all the awesomeness
Ahhhmazing hostess- she was so fun and positive! The food was so delicious! 100% recommend. Great DJ as well!
Was pleasantly surprised to find an upbeat, outdoor dining experience on the Promenade during this pandemic. The crowd was diverse and the DJ was playing some good music. The menu had a good variety of options and the dinner portions were big. I would definitely return.
Nice outside patio and good music playing
Service was really bad. Took 45 mins to bring my drink and food, when they brought out my friends order on time (15 mins or so). I repeatedly asked for my drink, which they kept forgetting. It didn't come until after my friends finished their drinks and food. Half my food also came out well after everyone else finished eating. The waiter apologized a little bit, but not that profusely and barely check on us, tried flagging him down several times to no avail. No offer to comp anything and no free shot or dessert or anything to make up for the screw up. Young/inexperienced waitstaff. No manager overseeing. Tipped him because I felt bad about Covid, but really they should have comped us something or offered to cancel the late food item.
Food was decent. Well priced. Drinks were good and very well priced. Place was loud but that's the vibe.
Excellent ambiance!!! Great food and wine!!!! Excellent Pricing compared to beach side restaurants with relatively similar menu.
Hosts, servers, food and drinks were all amazing!! Such great ambience with seating on the promenade. We will be back!
Horrible didn’t even get us some food
very good service food and ambiance, recommended. Promenade tables work very well.
Amazing local venue, with all night Happy Hour! Great Happy Hour food menu options, but also recommend the rib eye from the regular dinner menu. And of course, the prickly pear margarita!
Delicious food, creative cocktails, and Happy Hour is extended for all night! Popcorn shrimp, arancini, and tuna nachos are all highly recommended. Service is also excellent!
I had a deal with them to make a surprice for my daughters birthday to sing for her and but a birthday song then I shocked that only one of them just put the cake and left without anything They destroyed the day of us
Outstanding ability to accommodate the concerns of Covid yet providing a wonderful dining experience and delicious food
Our server was excellent! Good social distancing. Good place to celebrate Father's Day!
Exceeded expectations! Will definitely be coming back.
We had a great time. Thanks for being one of the first restaurants to reopen after Covid. You rock!
Set up well for Social Distancing. Was seated on time. Currently running happy hour as well at the table.
Service was very bad. She was rude and wasn’t concerned with ensuring we had a great experience.
Sea bass was good and cauliflower soup was yummy. My market salad had too much dressing and was very acidic. Good ambiance.
Amazing Ricky and Christian are the best
I was excited to try this place due to the reviews. Unfortunately our service was poor. I was surprised considering it was early and there were very few tables. Our server came to our table once almost 15 minutes after arriving and once more to drop off our food; she never once asked if we needed anything else or to at least offer to refill our drinks. Our food came out cold and the temperature on our burgers was wrong. Unfortunately I would never come back. If we got such bad service when it’s slow I can only imagine on a busy night.
Food is very average
The staff at 1212 were amazing. My son was hit by a motorized scooter right out in front of the restaurant while we were just finishing our dessert. The hostess ran out right after us and told us that one of her staff was an EMT. Ella (the EMT) appeared almost immediately and checked out my son’s hurt leg. She gave us wonderful advice and was just so kind and gentle with my 9 year old. She also made a makeshift ice pack with a plastic glove and secured it with plastic wrap! I am so very grateful for the kindness. It was a scary situation and she was simply wonderful.
We had a party for 20 here and 1212 was one of the few places in Santa Monica that could accommodate the size. Overall it was a good location with really tasty food and drinks. Good atmosphere. Service was very slow at times but somewhat expected with a large party (plus they were gearing up for an event at the same time). I’d definitely recommend trying it.
1212 was wonderful! We had a great lunch there and the food was excellent! They have a Happy Hour every day from 3pm to close. This is the BEST Happy Hour in the entire city!! In addition the place is immaculate and the food-everything we ordered was exceptional. They have a Chinese Chicken salad on the menu and I think it is the best I have ever had and I don't even like chicken! Great drinks, outdoor seating and great service make this a neighborhood favorite. Hailey was our bartender and she is so sweet. We love Gretchen the hostess. Max the bartender is wonderful. Garrett looks like James Dean says my best friend. Go and have the best food & drink here at 1212!
I love the food here and it’s the only thing really saving this review. I made reservations for a birthday dinner at 8:00. Upon my arrival was informed I had to be out by 9 due to a private party. They claimed I had been called by the hostess. I was not. No call no message. Just embarrassed at the door. I had to practically argue with the host to make the accommodation for my party and eventually they did. After the fact our server was super nice and caring which also made up for the rather tough start to the evening. For what I considered a quality establishment they have a poor process around events like this. I understand a lot of money is made on private parties. However, it’s your day to day patrons that keep your business going. Think on that.
The food was amazing and the ambiance was pretty nice (quiet enough to have a conversation)
That being said the service was absolutely terrible. Despite having a reservation it took almost half an hour for the table to be ready.
Then we had to wait another 10 min for the waiter to finally show up.
Everything went smoothly until desert. Another 20min and I had to finally wave down a busboy to see if it was actually on the way. He said the wait staff totally forgot about it...
Foods came out cold and risotto wasn’t good at all and 1212 burger was ok. Dont bring your kids, it’s as loud as a club. Service was excellent as he apologized many times for bringing the food out so late although it wasn’t his fault at all. You want casual dining with friends and get some beer with not much expectation on food quality then this place should work for you. I don’t think this place represents true spirits of “so-cal” foods in any way. Again, this is just my humble opinion for your consideration.
The service is very well, but some food could be improved.
Not one order was right. Table was cluttered with empty glasses and dishes all night. It was Valentines night, but the floor was about 40% full. No excuse
They offered a discount because they were aware. They discount our warm raw oysters 10%. $3.30 off of a $165.00 tab. Hope others experiences are better.
Good food good service A++ thank you 1212
Always dependable menu and consistently great meals-they do nothing wrong!
Service is horrible. Food is very good.
