We pass through Los Angeles a couple of times a year and always stop here when possible. Most recently we had the salmon benedict ($18) and wild boar pizza ($18) and both were fabulous. Our friends had the eggs benedict ($14) and smoked salmon platter ($19) and they were great as well. The wine list is very good and though... More

Second time here. Both were outstanding. Perfect setting overlooking Manhattan Beach pier. Delicious, fresh food. Very accommodating service. Can't wait to go back (too bad I live 3,000 miles away). It's my new go-to place to or from LAX!

I finally made it here for dinner last night and it did not disappoint. I made reservations for two and we were given a quiet upstairs corner table with a great view of the beach and the sunset. The restaurant is clearly designed to accentuate the beach and sunset views, and the sunrise and sunset times are printed on the... More

This was our second visit to The Stand and again the food and service were very good, however I feel compelled to advise that the coffee charge was a rip off. When the bill arrived I was shocked to see the coffee for 3 members of our group was $24.00. My son said I should question the charge, but before... More

Kale salad was marvelous. Pizza was not that good. Dinner companion had fish that smelled bad. View was pretty but Hermosa has better. This restaurant was okay but would not go back again.

This well-designed restaurant in Manhattan Beach is within walking distance of the beach and boardwalk. I enjoyed my dinner here and afterwards hung out downstairs in the popular bar area. It's definitely a hotspot for a Friday night!

We decided to eat at the Strand House towards the end of our vacation to celebrate my husbands birthday. It met our need for an upscale restaurant with interesting food, good drinks and great views. We started off in the downstairs bar to grab a drink before our reservation and watch the sunset. It was a Wednesday night, but fairly... More

We were looking for a restaurant for a birthday, and we tried this one based on the reviews, it was so good that we had to come back 5 times in 2 months. We have tried many things from the menu, the quality varies very much, but if you get the most expensive things on the menu you will be... More
