Description: In a world where landmarks are few and far between there is Gladstones. Situated where Sunset Boulevard meets the Pacific Coast Highway, it's become a place of Southern California legend. Gladstones offers a menu plucked from the very ocean it overlooks, serving modern renditions of classic dishes. In its typically relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, there's something to satisfy every palate. Whether you're at the raw bar, the lounge, the dining rooms or the grand patio over-looking the surf, it's commonly agreed there's no better place, either up the coast or down, to enjoy fresh seafood, a Mai Tai or a sunset. Over the last 40 years Gladstones has become a South California landmark. One visit and you'll see why.

It doesn't get any closer to the ocean than this! The setting is just perfect. This was our second visit to Gladstone's. We sat outside, which was a little chilly, but there were heaters near every table. We started with the medium seafood tower, which was amazing. There were 6 of us, so I lost track of what everyone ordered,... More

Celebrated a birthday dinner here with a large group of friends. We were initially seated at a mediocre table, where we could barely move our arms, so one of us asked to be moved. They complied and truly bent over backwards to please us. They comped us a calamari. We got this gigantic clam steam thing that four of us... More

Nice place for a meal on the ocean. Food was pricey and very average/uninspired. Did not expect to be served wine and cocktails in a plastic glass for this price point of a restaurant. Waiter was not the most attentive. Highlight of the dinner was the staff member who fashioned our leftovers in foil into a mermaid. They also snuck... More

Simply amazing seafood feast experience for my wife and I and our son for a quick spring break. It was a little crowded but did not have to wait long since we had a 1300 reservation on a weekend. Our service was great and very friendly with excellent recommendations. A must experience outing!

If I was only judging on the food and atmosphere, I would come here again and again. However, I can say that I have never had such poor service in a group. The waitress, Heidi, was rude and gave us a hard time for separating the checks. She walked off for extended periods of time, repeatedly, until we had to... More

I have to say they have a nice view...although not much of one after dark. Beyond that, though, they are just average and there is nothing around the restaurant. Window seats are very low and tables wide so I felt like a kid. I was not impressed by the menu and had a bit of a difficulty figuring out what... More

We were visiting the LA area and wanted to make the most of it, so I Googled "dining with scenic view in Los Angeles" and found a top ten list. An ocean view seemed the way to go, and we weren't disappointed! The outside deck allowed a perfect front seat view of the sunset. The entire experience was wonderful! We... More
