Great ocean front dining

We had an excellent meal, great service and a fabulous view. I would highly recommend the seafood tower, Buratta / prosciutto flatbread and the Bronzino. Perfect entertaining restaurant with amazing sunset views over the pacific.

We had oyster from Pacific. 6 different kinds which you can mix as you like . Brilliant taste. . As main course we choosed steak from Angus. The portions are big enough... More

WE WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS RESTAURANT, ITS THE WORST!!!! We made reservations well in advance, but they still wouldn't sit us in the dining area, even though there were plenty for tables with four chairs. They told us that those tables were only going to parties of four, and since there were only two of us, we would have... More

Got together with some friends the last time I was in L.A. and had a great experience. We tried some delicious garlic fries, fresh oysters and a pizza. While it wasn't cheap at all it was well worth it. The place is really trendy, so a reservation is a good idea.

Like all the other reviews the view of the water is awesome. Ceiling to floor windows all around make it easy for every table to have a great view. The food was good, portion sizes are a bit on the small side. My kids enjoyed the pizza while I enjoyed the salmon. We had 2 waiters one sat us and... More

Very nice place if you want to eat close to the Manhattan Beach. They have a fantastic view, good choice of food, nice service. The kids food (esp. tomato pasta) was a bit too spicy for our girls.
