The menu is trendy. The service is great. The view from the upstairs dining room over the pier and beach is breathtaking.

Had nothing to do and all day to do it in so decided to have a look around Manhattan Beach. There was plenty of parking on the beach during this day. There are a number of nice looking restaurants in the area but I chose this one for lunch due to its location just off the beach and it looked... More

We had lunch and dinner over a few days. The food and service are very good, but you can't beat watching the sunset with a nice glass of wine.

Stopped in for early lunch after leaving LAX. Was provided a table with a view of the ocean and pier. Food was really good, service was prompt and friendly. Good location for brunch, lunch or dinner.

There are only a handful of restaurants I would return to again and again for special occasions, and this is certainly one of them. Consistently excellent and interesting food, unusual and inspired cocktails, very good service and a wonderful dressy beach vibe. I have been there six times in 2014, most recently last month with a dinner party of 8.... More

Had late lunch with family before heading off to LAX. The food, the ambiance, the service and the ocean view are great. A bit pricey, but I would go back and will recommend it to friends.

After just landing at LAX, we stopped here for lunch and we're very impressed by the incredible ocean view, the pier, the food and the ambience. Just within minutes of LAX, we were in paradise. Nicely located in the heart of downtown Manhattan Beach with easy public parking and walking to all the shops and the pier. We also stopped... More
