Went to this place as it was highly recommended and it had a good view. However the hostess was beyond rude which made for a bad start, then the service was poor and food was just ok. There are so many better places in MB for food and atmosphere. If you want a spectacular view this place is a great... More

Fabulous views of Manhattan beach, the pier and the ocean even if you sit inside. We went to this restaurant for lunch, the service was very good and our waiter was very helpful suggesting we try a particular tomato salad that was in season & local to the area. We also enjoyed the fish tacos & a side dish of... More

If I didn't live in Australia I would visit this place weekly. The food, the service, the atmosphere is all faultless. The best meal I have had in a long time and the presentation was second to none. I will be back.

Being 1 of only 2 venues bordering the beach and pier, the unbeatable views are it's greatest feature and the prices reflect that. A sidewalk-side bar with stools was a great asset on a somewhat busy Saturday morning. Waitress & Bartender were very prompt and service was outstanding. The views aside, $19 for an Omelette is a little ridiculous. Beers... More

This restaurant is along the strand in Manhattan Beach. The view is beautiful overlooking the pier and beach. There were 6 of us dining for lunch. We had great food & drinks. I personally had the Kale Salad but had them put grilled chicken on it and it was very good. Two in our party had the tacos which were... More

Within 20 mins of LAX. Food was delicious and good value for what I would describe as Fine Dining! Had an early lunch at a window table overlooking the pier. Loved Manhattan Beach and this restaurant - will make a point of returning next time in LA.

We had a wonderful meal with a great view of the pier. The pork chop was tender and cooked to perfection. The "prime" filet was indeed prime and again cooked to the perfect temperature. Service was a bit off. We had to run down our waiter a couple of times. He was very busy and we were not in a... More

This restaurant is in a heat location with awesome views. I highly suggest getting their pizza. It is quite delicious. Unfortunately, they don't do takeout.

We visited for lunch and really enjoyed the two pizzas we ordered. One of us order the kale salad and and a side of their Fries. OMG, the fries were twice cooked in tallow and they were ADDICTING! We had their signature Bloody Mary, and while it was good, its not the best I've had. Service was prompt and accommodating!... More
