Chinois On Main
2709 Main St, Santa Monica, CA 90405
I took a friend here about 2 weeks ago, and was underwhelmed to say the least. The food was good, but not worth the price. We had the pineapple glazed quail, which was excellent, and the salmon, which was dry and tasteless. The fried asparagus was just ok, as was the fried rice. The service was average - I've had better and I've had worse at restaurants of this caliber. For two people with entrees, one glass of wine each, and dessert, we spent about $175. The meal was enjoyable, but frankly, even if they cost the same amount, I'd probably go to P.F. Chang first. Oh, and THE WINE WAS SERVED IN PLASTIC WINE GLASSES. I'm sorry, but that's just embarrassing and unacceptable at a place like this. If you have the money and don't care if you're paying too much for your meal, this place is ok, but you're better off spending it elsewhere.
