Recommended by a friend's cousin

Dined on a Tuesday, and the place was busy and lively. Friendly and helpful staff, plus delicious food. Had no reservations but sat in the bar area. We had the French Dip sandwich and Cheese burger. Both very ample and tasty. The place is huge with lots of parking.

The food was excellent and the service was outstanding! I'm from Houston so I was pleased to find a "home" restaurant on my trip. Good location in Manhattan Beach

My friend and I ate lunch in the bar area. The food was great (ahi salad for me). I was surprised that they also offer sushi (can't wait to try the sushi next time). Service was flawless (during a very busy lunch period). Drinks were tasty (cosmos, wine and beer). Restrooms were clean. We sat for 3 hours (continuing to... More

Was here last night with my daughter for her birthday. We started with cocktails and an appetizer (the kale salad) it was "eh". We had three waitresses during the course of the evening and all three acted like they had other agendas... put our food or drinks on the table and before we could ask them for anything they were...

Was pleasantly surprised to find this great restaurant tucked into strip mall near gourmet grocery store we visit in Manhattan Beach. Very upscale with a good bar. They prepared our food for take-out and packaged all portions securely in quality containers which kept these warm until serving 30 minutes later. Salads and ribs were delicious. Food very fresh and service... More

Platitudes would be how I describe the service, the staff is full of it but it is very shallow. How do you charge $100 for lunch for 3 and rush them through -- offering dessert and the check while 1 of 3 in at the table is still eating their entree? Well they do that and more effortlessly at Houston's.... More
