Last night was our first DineLA outing and after a few snafus, we ended up at Wilshire Restaurant in Santa Monica. It was our first time there and we had a terrific evening with friends. Absolutely beautiful outdoor heated patio, impeccable service and outstanding food. Sometimes when the restaurants participate in special events like this, the servers have attitude and the portions are small, but this wasn’t the case at Wilshire. If part of the objective of DineLA is to introduce diners to places they might not have normally gone to in hopes of drumming up return business, in the case of Wilshire it really worked, we would go back for sure.
