Thus is a great spot, especially if you are staying around LAX-only a $15-$20 cab ride away and way better than hotel food. It is in Manhattan Village Mall but has a really nice vibe and appears to have a good bar scene. We ordered pizzas as it was a long day and we wanted something quick-it was quick-pizzas out... More

Restaurants in or at a mall always make me weary, but Tin Roof is definitely an exception. For out-of-towners, the location is great and easy to find: just off the 405 without any twists and turns. The restaurant exterior was high-end attractive (always a good thing when travelling with picky family members:). We arrived well before our reserved time on... More

Food wonderful, like wise the service. My nephew who lives nearby lists this as his favourite eating place especially for children. His little boy asked for this restaurant for his Christmas!

I went to this restaurant while on business travel. You have the option of sitting inside or outside. We sat outside and had an enjoyable dinner. The food is pricey but the service was great. Everyone at the tabke enjoyed their food from fish and chips to salmon to individual pizzas.

Great lunch place!!! Visiting the El Segundo area and consulted with Yelp! and once again the community has nailed it. The inch specials are great. I got a half sandwich, soup and salad for less than $10. The sandwich was a turkey brie on ciabatta roll, black been soup and mixed greens salad with shaved carrots. The food was delicious.... More

We visited after a recommendation from the Belamar hotel and we are still talking about the good experience. The food was excellent, service impeccable, and the cocktails were superb. We tried the Indian spinach dip, tenderloin with butternut squash, caramelized Brussels sprout salad, and the haystack potatoes. Each was some of the best for we had ever had anywhere in... More

This Manhattan Beach gem is less trendy than its sister Post, and the experience was a very pleasant surprise. Set in a Manhattan Beach shopping mall, I had rather snobby low expectations that proved wrong. Also, it was Valentines Day, so I kinda expected chaos. Busy yes, chaotic no. Everything was under control. In fact everything about the dinner was... More

Loved the atmosphere of the Tin Roof Bistro and the great selection of food. Service was great on both occasions that I visited and waiting staff were accommodating re: providing tastings of the house wines and plate shares. Carmelised brussel sprouts, roasted veggies and brocollini to be recommended - and I am not a vegetarian!

Recently had a very enjoyable dinner at Tin Roof. Convenient parking, nice waitstaff, and generally very good food. The waiter recommended the short ribs braised in wine, and they indeed were excellent. Likewise the pork tenderloin ordered by my son-in-law. My wife's papardelle was less satisfying. The brussel sprouts were, as everyone says, excellent.

Why can't restaurants on the east coast in this price range deliver this kind of innovative food and great service! This was my 2nd visit and it was consistent with the first, really good. I don't think you can go wrong with anything you order!
