Some very well prepared, sauced and presented foods. One of the better Caesar salad's I've had in some time. Nice harbor views. Experienced wait staff. Good wine selections.

We were at Whisky Reds for a "Painting and Vino" evening, the setting is beautiful, the establishment sits looking out onto the marina with outdoor seating and fire pits at the front and koi ponds fit with water features providing a tranquil oasis at the rear. You get 2 hours free parking with validation and then you're charged 1usd for... More

Shanghai Red's in LA is the most amazing, romantic, and beautiful place to have Sunday Brunch in LA. The variety of food is excellent, the service is wonderful, the bottomless mimosas are pleasingly intoxicating (LOL!), and the scenery is AMAZING!!!! There is nothing like sitting right by the water, facing a mesmerizing fireplace, sipping on a little bubbly, and feasting... More

Our waiter brought and an ice bucket for the white wine - nice touch on warm day. Bread service is excellent - raw sea food cold and expensive but the best part of... More

The entrance to Whiskey Red's is beautiful, with bridges and koi ponds-- living up to its older "Shanghai" name. However the food is not Asian, but seafood with calamari, seafood plates, and oysters on the half-shell being some of the main fare. And it is tasty, but the portions are very small and the prices are high for the amount... More

We treated out of town guests to the sumptuous buffet brunch at Whiskey Red's in Marina del Rey on 12/28/13 and really enjoyed it - as always!! First and foremost, the outdoor tables by the water are the best in the house! Next, the service is always 5 star. Of course the food is good (not stellar) and the prices... More

I just read that Shanghai Red's is now "Whiskey Reds" in Marina del Ray (Los Angeles area). Let me say that we just returned home from the Thanksgiving buffet ($41/person) - very disappointed. It all started when we drove into the parking lot and were met with a fee: free 2-hour parking and then $1/15 minutes. So already, we felt... More

I've been going here for brunch for over eight years. This year however, they have changed management, their food selection and decor, for the worse, in my opinion. Not only has the food selection decreased, but the taste has diminished as well. The fish and hash browns were dry, the eggs bene were over cooked, seafood selection scaled back, etc.... More
