Great atmosphere and service. The food was fine, definitely worth the pricing, but the ambience and service make up for it.
Beautiful setting and great food. The only issue was the seating itself, which wasn’t particularly comfortable for a business meal (but would be great for just lounging).
The place is beyond amazing. I was surprised to be seated in low chairs/sofas with a low table in between us but this actually ended up being comfortable and relaxed. The food was okay. I probably wouldn’t come back if the restaurant was located on a regular building, but the whole hotel look & experience made it worth it.
Awesome place! Highly recommended!!!
Beautiful setting located at the roof top of the proper hotel. The quintessential LA ambience and decor.. The food was good but the drinks could have been stronger. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would go back again
Calabra was very safe in their COVID edits, wearing face masks and gloves and having spread out seating. The food came quickly and the atmosphere was great and cozy. Julien made us feel welcome and celebrated with a glass of champagne on the house!
I appreciated the food and service but didn’t feel the tables in the pool area where we were seated followed covid19 guidelines of 6 feet apart. We asked to be moved but told no other tables available. Mind you our reservation was for 5 pm and as I looked around, definitely in the main room plenty of seating available that were further apart .
Beautiful setting, mediocre food. The Mediterranean plate was beautiful, but bland and tasteless.
Great service and friendly helpfulness from all staff.
Great atmosphere and service! Food and bevs were awesome!
An excellent spot for cocktail and appetizers off the busy Santa Monica path. This is a perfect spot to go if you are looking for delicious appetizers, drinks and cozy (very aesthetic) vibes.

Service - 10/10 (very clean and safe)
Had a wonderful experience here. The service, ambiance and dishes we ordered we all wonderful. They also have a great selection of cocktails, we had three or four and they were all delicious. Their outdoor dining area is also beautiful, great for a date night. We look forward to dining at Fia again soon.
I had a great experience
Food was delicious and service superb. Def will come back!
The food was incredible! Music was perfect, a mixture of everything. The atmosphere was perfect too and i can’t forget about the perfect view of the city we had for my boyfriends 27th birthday! This restaurant made our trip even more unforgettable
The restaurant is beautiful and the food is absolutely delicious, no question about it.
As we are older ( in our late 40’s,) they seated my wife & I on the back
side of the restaurant overlooking rooftops of neighborhood apartments, as opposed to the beautiful restaurant setting.
Seated at the other end of the restaurant separated by a wall, it did not make it easy for our server to come around as often as we liked. We waited a very long time to order appetizers not to mention the main course afterwards.
As beautiful and delicious as this place was, I will not be returning, I felt like I wasn’t good enough to sit in the main dining area.
Great vibes on the rooftop - food service was on the slow side.
Service was superb! Rebecca our hostess made a great effort to accommodate my request to move to the pool side since it was my going away celebration. Chelsea our server was also lovely & the team members assisting :)
Place was packed! My friend & I did not like our original spot...the tucked away tables near the restrooms facing west hollywood, very isolated & lacked character, ambiance & people vibe
So glad Rebecca was able to switch our location.
good draft beer selection though the mussels & broth was warm not hot, nevertheless it was delicious & fresh! The rooftop restaurant with the pool area, bar facing fireplace & ocean js one of a kind in Santa Monica, worth going back to 👍
Very over priced. Great server.
Love the Covid practices and care for guest but pricey.
This place is amazing, from the vibe to music to food to service, it was 10/10. Already making a resi to come back next week with visitors in town!
Great culinary experience
Covid safe, great staff, amazing drinks and sunset view. Food was pricey but delicious
Very poor service considering there were barely any customers and a huge amount of staff.
We had a really nice, enjoyable evening. The food was good too.
Good atmosphere I liked the food and pool area!!!
We were seated at a table by the hostess that boasted a "city view" but in reality, it was just an overflow table in a walkway that cut us off from the atmosphere of the restaurant. The food was just OK and the service was fine once we were seated, but I wouldn't go back because of the poor overall experience.
Let's just say it was ... not great. We had super high expectations for Calabra especially because the menu looked great and the Kelly Wearstler designs sounded amazing. We had reservations at 5:45 pm on a Saturday for my family of 5 people. Arrived at 5:30 pm to take a look at the lobby and the Proper Hotel design.
Here's where it went wrong - Had to wait in a 20 min reservations line and finally was seated around 6:20 pm. It was very busy. Lots of people and not a lot of social distancing or areas to be safe.
Something you don't really know before you go is that 90% of their seating is super lounge style. So not a normal table top situation to eat. I think maybe 4-5 tables have dining chairs and dining tables. The majority of the restaurant has one small side table amongst round banquette seating. Let's be clear this is BAD design for a full on restaurant that you are trying to eat entrée dishes of food. We had asked the hostess if we could move and she was super nice tried to accommodate us but since their were limited options, I ended up cutting my plate of skirt steak on my lap because their was no table.
As far as ambiance goes... the sofas are stained, the lounge chairs are pilling and the pillows are...let's just not talk about it. This is a NEW restaurant and the furniture looked like it has been there for 10 years. We had to ask for napkins to rest our arms on so we could avoid touching the stains. I know this sounds like we were being EXTRA, but we just had to be safe.
In the end the food was really good, like the sweet potatoes, branzino, and steak. Avoid the salad, it was all old greens. The service apparently improved since my mom had been there but we had to work hard to get water and all the cups are plastic because you are by the pool. Also it took another 30 minutes before we could order anything after we finally sat.
When you go to hotel to eat, you want to be treated like you are on vacation and have no worries. This was full of them.
It was my birthday, and everyone that serviced our table were accommodating and were covid compliant. I was extremely impressed with everything. Thank you for making my day extra special.
Servers/bussers need to he trained on how to serve and buss tables. They came up far too frequently to either check in or ask whether our (full) plates or drinks were ready to be cleared/replenished.
It honestly became a joke towards the end and really interrupted the flow of the evening.
Overall Ambience and food is very nice but won’t go back with service like that.
We made a reservation for a birthday celebration. Because of Covid the time was limited which was fine. However, we were approached by personnel, Ms. Rook, who said we had to leave in a rude manner without inquiring when we had arrived or if we had finished our meal. Meanwhile, there were parties that were in attendance that were there longer than our party of 4 that were not approached. The service was poor in that it took a while to get drink orders and when they arrived the wine was warm so we had to ask several times for replacement drinks. Very disappointed with the service and this restaurant. This was my first time visiting this restaurant and first time stay at the Proper. I will not return.
Jordiana was our server! She was amazing and I really appreciated how on top of things she was. Great customer service and very accommodating. The food was amazing and I will definitely be back again.
The atmosphere was perfect but it’s very expensive. Granted, we ended up staying about 4 hours,
Music should be
Less noisy ...
Busboys please don’t take plates away before everybody is done eating ... it it’s very impolite
Food was excellent and I would go back if only the
Chairs wouldn’t be so uncomfortable ...
Our waiter was very nice but should stay a certain distance away during cove
Plus leave the shield done ......
The maitre D' seating us didn't care if we complained re our table. He said take it or leave it. Another gentlemen showed us around and we picked a decent table. They should review their employees.
I love Calabra! Best food, ambiance and service in the city!
Good food , very good atmosphere and excellent service
We really enjoyed our breakfast at Calabra. Atmosphere was inviting and friendly. The only issue was finding the entrance to the hotel to get up to the rooftop. it is really around the corner on the side street not on Wilshire.
Food was excellent!
Great cocktails and food, I appreciated that they had lots of vegan options. My favorite dish was the mezze platter. Nothing beats the ambiance of this rooftop. Design is incredible and I appreciated that everything was very socially distanced
Amazing spot especially to watch sunset ! Great menu, creative drinks, fun date night!
