There is nothing quite like spending Thanksgiving overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica and letting someone else do all the planning, cooking, and baking. At the timeless Hotel Shangri-la Santa Monica, guests can enjoy the intimate ambiance in the hotel’s oceanfront dining room with specially created menus for the holidays: a traditional Thanksgiving Day Feast; Christmas Day dining; and New Year’s Eve dinner and later cocktails at the popular Suite 700 bar and lounge.
The special family style Thanksgiving Feast will be served on Thursday, November 28 from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm in The Dining Room. The prix fixe fare is $70 per person and consists of a comfortable classic dining experience meticulously planned by Chef Ryan Steed, who only uses the freshest local produce handpicked from the weekly farmer’s market. Young guests six years of age and under are complimentary.
The traditional Thanksgiving menu includes a bountiful feast of Roasted Turkey and Glazed Bone-in Ham complemented with all the classic trimmings. No holiday feast would be complete without topping off the meal with sumptuous Classic Pumpkin Pie or some hand-baked Persimmon Cookies.
Reservations for this special Thanksgiving dinner are highly recommended as The Dining Room has limited space and sells out quickly. Reservations can be made by calling (310) 451-0717 and a credit card is required for booking. No cancellation fees apply if a reservation is cancelled more than 48 hours in advance.
In addition to the tantalizing dishes always offered in The Dining Room, a variety of special dishes will be available for guests to enjoy on Christmas Day. Guests enjoy a beautiful view and first-class gastronomy that blends California comfort, fine dining and hushed intimacy. The Dining Room is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm and reservations are recommended.
New Year’s Eve

Ring in the New Year with the most popular party of the year at Suite 700, enjoying great music, wonderful libations and a midnight champagne toast. The Dining and Cocktail package is $125 per person. For those who prefer to enjoy dinner only, the prix fixe price is $75 per person.
