The food was good. Ruth's Chris prices at not the same quality. Long waits for even the basics: having to ask multiple times for getting water or the menus. Nice atmosphere, though.

Hol’ up! Are you telling me this elegant and sophisticated restaurant has Happy Hour Monday-Thursday 5pm-close??? I mean cmon this can’t be true. Well ladies and gents it’s certainly true and it’s certainly a really good deal. They have draft beets for 4 bucks, wines for 6 , specialty drinks for 8 and an assortment of nibbles ranging for 7 -9 bucks. The ambiance is great. Dimly lit but very vibrant. I came here for a networking event and although the area was small for us to move around and mingle, the atmosphere was very nice. Also we only had one bartender for our section so getting drinks was a hassle. Other than that this place is gorgeous. Really worth a visit! There is street parking around Wilshire and down some of the side roads. Make sure and pay attention to the signs because the neighborhood parking is for residents only.

A small group of us came here on a whim for dinner on a weeknight. We were sat at a table in the back outdoor area. It was nice as the weather was warm. To start I had the Hamachi appetizer. The fish was delicate and the cucumber salad that it came with was light and refreshing. For main I had the pork chop. This was executed perfectly. The pork was cooked to perfection and so moist. I love the ambiance of this restaurant. It's dimly lit with a romantic feel. I can also see this restaurant being great for birthdays as well. There are a few longer tables in the back that is perfect for big groups.

Attended a dinner here recently put on by my office with a fixed menu. Couldnt have been a nicer experience. The filet and hamachi were delicious, and the staff was very attentive. We sat outside on the heated and well lit back patio, which was a beautiful space. Overall a great evening and would definitely return for a special occasion.

Several changes of kitchen staff in the past years, but somehow the Wilshire remains consistently good in its menu and customer experience. The large, romantic patio is one of the best spots to eat outside in West LA.

Great ambiance, fire pit in the rear and just a few people in the bar and dining area. Like having the place for VIP with very attentive staff. After getting drinks at the var Wilshire Russian...made fabulously and a wonderful Malbec, We enjoyed some blues mixed w\ms Ella, Louis, Robert Cray and some old time classics, it was a great way to begin the evening. From there, we chose to sit in the patio area which making proved to be quite romantic for my beautiful wife/date for the evening. Petro arrived and made excellent recommendations that prove very beneficial. The short ribs, the pork chop, even the pairing chutney were prepared excellently and seasoned beyond expectation. We concluded w/flourless chocolate cake, handmade chocolate & vanilla ice cream, 2 cappuccino with perfect foam. The evening ended with both off thanking the staff for this a great "date night" experience which becomes a mainstay on our go-to list for great meals, great company and any total number of positive experiences in the town of Santa Monica on a Friday night.

The seven deadly sins cocktail was delicious- this was what i wanted to try the first time i got I was happy to say I finally got that chance to try it this time around! Go to Oliver, best Bartender ever!
