The contemporary décor is perfect for the setting. We started with a drink in the lounge in the lower level. It was a great bar... read more

Creative drink menu, delicious little donut bites, perhaps the best huevos rancheros in town. A treat for any occasion, especially great for brunch.

Had reservations for 12:30 and were seated at 12:45. Had a nice view from where we were sitting. We all ordered drinks which were very good. I ordered the Bloody Mary that came with a strip of Bacon. The Blood Mary was spicy and very tasty. The part of the bacon that was not in the drink was crispy and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us, and we certainly were not disappointed! We enjoyed our dinner so much that we returned for brunch a couple of days later. Good variety of dishes to choose from, well cooked and beautifully presented. Top tjis up with a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. But make sure you reserve or be prepared for a... More

I had dinner at The Strand House recently while entertaining some customers of mine who were in town, and had a great dining experience after a bit of a bumpy start. Apparently someone had called two hours before our reservation to cancel our booking, yet no one in our group had done so. We arrived and were told of the... More

We recently visited the Strand Restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The food was above average with many seafood and steak choices. The view is what it was all about with a beautiful sunset,all the people walking the boardwalk, surfers along the pier. The Strand had a good selection of wines to pair with your meal. There were many locals which... More

The place was extremely busy and ended up waiting over 2 hours for a table when we were told no more than 1 hour. Food is pricey, but was pretty good. I've had a lot better for lower prices though. Excellent location and the view is very nice.

Great friendly service, great location with a panoramic beach/ocean view. Pricey but worth it. Friendly and casual as well.

Located in the heart of downtown Manhattan Beach, close to the main beach. Great food and vibe; some tables have ocean views. Wait for a table can be quite lengthy and price point is high. Excellent salads and pizza. Suggest making a reservation.

We went to celebrate a special birthday, and were promptly greeted and seated fairly quickly in a large booth with a great ocean view (it's almost right on the beach). The bar downstairs, which becomes a club, was pretty noisy, as would be expected on a Saturday night. There's a somewhat quieter bar upstairs. We had some very good cocktails,... More
