Feels like you're at the beach but upscale! Great atmosphere and beach colors. Almost all white with turquoise accents, beach floors and great Edison lights. One side of restaurant totally open so even when eating inside, you still have the AC summer outside air! Outside...More

2nd visit, probably my last. It’s a very nice ambience with an interesting menu and excellent service. But our four cheese tortellini tasted like it came from a microwave and had barely been defrosted - lukewarm & not very tasty.

Located in the heart of Pike & Rose, Summer House Santa Monica presents an escape to the warmth and laid-back vibes of the West Coast, complete with beach house décor and hanging string lights. At the heart of the open kitchen lies a wood fire grill that is the workhorse of many of Summer House’s menu items. The menu, created by Chef/Partner Jeff Mahin, is California inspired and focuses on market driven ingredients, local and sustainable farming, and seasonal specialties, all complemented by a carefully curated list of California and Pacific North Coast wines. The Market counter, shared with Stella Barra Pizzeria, offers a variety of our signature fresh-baked pastries, cookies, sourdough English muffins, along with locally sourced coffee and specialty espresso drinks. No matter the season, no matter the weather, you will be transported to the warmth of California at Summer House.
