Celebrating 44-Plus Years

Chez Jay on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, California has been serving locals, celebrities and visitors for over 44 years. Known as a celebrity "dive" or hangout throughout its history, Chez Jay is one of the premiere steak and seafood neighborhood restaurants in all of Los Angeles, offering a unique and friendly atmosphere, as well as those famous faces that have and still do frequent the restaurant and call it their favorite spot.

This well-known hideaway is on Ocean Avenue just block south of the Santa Monica Pier, on the east side of the street. It is in the heart of the civic center district, steps from the third Street Promenade and many of Santa Monica's best hotels, and of course, just on the bluff above famed Santa Monica beach. A stroll to Chez Jay is an easy one and a stroll home, even easier.

Chez Jay
is known for many things, but probably the two most prominent features are its friendly atmosphere and service, and its good food. Anyone and everyone is made to feel welcome for dining or those just in for a cocktail or glass of wine. Classic seafood, steaks and chops are served with recipes that rekindle fond memories of just great food. And, don't forget the bar --- classic cocktails, an excellent wine list and your favorite beer on tap. And, the peanuts served are famous --- they will tell you, a Chez Jay peanut even made it to the moon, but for this story, you need to visit first hand. The restaurant also has a private dining room available for parties, valet parking, and is open seven nights a week for dinner, Tues - Friday for lunch and Sat and Sunday for breakfast.

In the Movies
Just like owner Jay Fiondella, Chez Jay has been featured in many first run motion pictures and is an ideal location for a film shoot. As is often quoted "nothing much changes at Chez Jay" so it is a perfect bar for anytime, any place. Please talk with co-owner Michael Anderson for any special requests and dates.
