We ended our honeymoon with a layover in LA. My wife chose The Lobster for our dinner there. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed, because I know Santa Monica fairly well, and that there are endless varieties of restaurants to be had. While all that is true, she made a great choice.
We both got crab/lobster and both of our dishes were fantastic. I got a California spiny lobster, and my wife a Dungess Crab. Both were simply, but perfectly prepared. Cocktails were excellent, the wine pairing was perfect by the glass, and our shared dessert was the best of our two week trip through Southern California and French Polynesia.
The prices at this restaurant are tiered a bit. If you go lobster, you get into sizes, and it gets expensive in a hurry. But it gets better in a hurry. But they do it all well, with a very nice view. We went after sunset, but a sunset table other times of year would add all the more to it. Lastly, the service was fantastic. We loved our last meal of our honeymoon at The Lobster.
