I’ve been there a few times but this last trip was a bit disappointing. Service was slow (though the restaurant wasn’t that busy). Food was average not as good as I remembered. The vibe and decor are cool though!

We have taken your feedback to our team and rest assured we will address your points. Thank you again for your feedback. Sincerely, Alex Doong, Restaurant Manager
The food was great, our server was efficient and patient with one member of our party member’s many requests. It was just really loud where we were sat. That pineapple upside down cake is no joke when it comes to delicious
Food and service were excellent!
Beautiful restaurant, some of the tables are a bit too close together. Service was very attentive.
Our waiter Brian was really fabulous. He was so very kind and on top of everything. The food was really fantastic - especially the yellowtail appetizer.
Service was excellent and great ambience for Valentine’s Day dinner. However Valentine’s Day menu was just ok. Had been to Herringbone before, food was excellent then.
Horrible Service took forever for our food
Food was delicious and fun atmosphere - very loud though
Not sure what was going on that night, but sat at the bar at around 9:30 and the service was awful. The laker game was on the tv and in the middle of the game, at around 9:45 while eating, a worker walked up to the tv and shut it off. We were obviously watching and he looked at us and then just walked away. I guess his shift was over. Then the bartender was quite rude and brusque with us. She had an awful attitude. Didn’t smile once and had terrible customer service. She obviously wanted to go home as well. It was so bad that we asked to have our food packed up to go because we’d rather eat in the hotel instead of enduring more rudeness. For an establishment that charges high prices for food and drinks, I expect at least DECENT service. We were very disappointed for it was a place we had our first date and this time left a very bad taste in our mouths. We wont be coming back.
Great food and service
Super service, and really tasty food! Their $1 oysters are super, and an amazing value! Loved it!!
This was recommended by a friend and it was a great recommendation!! The food and service were outstanding. Excellently prepared and conscious plating of the whole meal. I had the Chilean sea bass and my family had the lobster roll and snapper. Each dish had the right amount of seasoning - not overpowering the flavors of the seafood. The only tick marks not so favorable was the pineapple upside down cake was too much of a hearty bread instead of the more traditional cake without a fresh cut of pineapple - it seemed to be something akin to a dried pineapple ring then baked. I was hoping for a much juicier thicker ring of fresh pineapple and a wonderfully light textured cake. Other than that, and the loudness level of all the patrons making it difficult to hear our own table conversations the place was a delight. I most heartily recommend the restaurant for the food and service and would go back for a second helping when in the Santa Monica area again!
Hello Christopher, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We apologize that our patrons were loud when your group visited us and are sorry that the dessert did not meet your expectations. We will let our culinary team know your thoughts. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
They changed the menu but not on the website. Food was delicious but very little seafood in the risotto. Service was excellent but VERY noisy.
Hi Susan, We told our team to get our menus updated right away so that this does not happen again. We apologize that you had to experience that and that you visited at a time when our restaurant was louder than normal. We hope you consider dining with us again soon.
I had researched their menu ahead of making a reservation as both I and some members of my party have specific dietary needs. However, when we got to the restaurant we were surprised to find that their menu was quite different in person and when we asked our server what they recommended for needs, he and the chef seemed befuddled and annoyed at our request.
Once we got an order in, our server disappeared and service overall was slow and unfriendly. The food was fair at best. We were clearly paying for the ambiance and locale of the place more than anything.
I don't see a reason to return.
Hi Brianne, We apologize and understand the frustration you and your party must have had when arriving to our restaurant and finding out that the menu is different in person compared to online. We will tell our team to get this updated right away to prevent this from happening again. We will also speak with our service team and culinary team about your poor experience. We hope you consider dining with us in the future.
Herringbone was the perfect place to get brunch with old friends, just enough noise for a vibe but not so loud that we couldn't catch up with each other. Fantastic food and service, a knockout overall!
Went here for brunch. Amazing service, very friendly staff. great food and drinks. Can’t wait to come back again!
Will not be dining here again for dinner. While the service was fine, the food was overpriced and underwhelming. I paid $28 for a fish and chips dish. The battered fish was extremely soggy and flavor-less, and the cole slaw served with it had clearly just been pulled from the freezer because it had frozen chunks throughout it. We were also disappointed to learn that happy hour does not extend to the reserved tables/tables that are not the first-come-first-serve high top tables (which is mentioned nowhere on their website or on open table). Overall thoroughly disappointed.
Loved Herringbone! Came here for a birthday party and everything we had was delicious! For a seafood restaurant, that was some of the best pizza I’ve ever had. I would highly recommend the mushroom pizza, ceviche, Brussel sprouts!!
Great service and food
I really want to like this place! I've been for a sundown/happy hour and it was pretty good - oysters and champagne.
I've been for dinner twice now and both times the service is not great (waiter did not pick up the menu, waited too long for a glass of wine - the waiter was talking with the bartender, then said the bar was backed up -, was not offered dessert). The food is okay, but nothing is really that good or worth it.
If I ever go back, it will just be for oysters or raw options (crab legs, lobster and shrimp good too, but the butter arrived cold/hard twice and the waiter didn't even notice).
The decor is nice!
