Wilshire Santa Monica Reviews
Oct 28, 2007
I've been here twice. The first was a few months ago - and while I thought the outdoor patio was lovely, I didn't remember the food being particularly memorable. Last night we returned for a friend's birthday, and I'm happy to report that the food has dramatically improved. (We sat inside this time - still a nice, dark, cozy atmosphere, but I definitely prefer the outdoor patio). The only real complaint was that corkage was $25 per bottle, which is highway robbery! But back to the food:
For starters - I shared the bruschetta with burrata (a creamy slab of burrata atop a toasted piece of bread and plump juicy slices of tomatoes - simple but delicious!) and the taglietelle with lobster (great texture on the wide pasta and sweet chunks of lobster). Then I had the venison - sweet and tender, not gamey at all.
We brought cupcakes from Dainties (yum! - check out iheart2travel's review) - a wonderful way to end a yummy meal (or any meal for that matter...)
Bonus - Wilshire is located next to (and shares the same valet lot with) Holly's West (a bar/club). It's nice to eat and then walk over to hang out at a casual bar and/or dance to a great mix of music (hip pop, 80's, dance, etc.).
