Best restaurant in LA ever

We were there two nights ago, to celebrate our last night out in LA before going back to Italy. I wasn't that hungry so I just had the tortilla soup and a salad (don't remember the name...it had bacon and blue cheese crumbles in it) and my husband had the mahi mahi. OMG the food was just amazing... read more

This is a club-style, intimate place that I think is very romantic. We had our first date, rehearsal dinner and 10th anniversary dinner here. The steaks are excellent, of course, but the sides, salads and specials are all creative fresh and delicious. And there's a great wine list full of top notch California wines that aren't overpriced. The service is... More

Our group ordered the pork chops, ahi tuna, and house meatloaf which were huge portions but excellent. The pork was a stand out. The accompanying vegetables were very poor unfortunately, only down side to this restaurant which has a nice atmosphere and great service.

Food was excellent, service was great. Prices are on the high side but worth it. Save room for dessert, we tried 4 of them, all to die for!

We were here with a relatively large group, but it didn't affect the quality of the food at all. Our server was enthusiastic and really "sold" every dish. I sampled a bit of everyone's food, and there was not a single misstep in our dishes. If you're in the mood for quality, unassuming food, then this is your best bet... More

We've been going to Fonz's for years. It has a good selection on the menu and always several options for nightly specials. The husband and I have tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. Most recently we enjoyed the warm goat cheese salad, short ribs, seared ahi and wasabi mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious. Service is always excellent. It... More

Fonzies is a few steps away from MBBlvd by more civilized and perhaps 20% cheaper than FWD or MBPost. its less crowded and on a week night you can generally walk in and get a table. You can also get parking most of the time. Book on weekends and holidays. The food is a range from good salads, pasta, seafood... More

Fonzes has a fine patina of good food and service. Nothing extra fancy but reliable dining experience. Mostly locals who know the whole crowd and servers. Pork chop is especially yummy! Happy hour menu is terrific as well.

We had a nice dinner here with several friends on a recent trip to Manhattan Beach. The Tortilla soup was very tasty and I really enjoyed the Pear salad that I ordered to go with it. Others in our party ordered risotto, steak and the fish tacos. Everyone was very pleased with their food and the service was excellent. They... More

The place looks pld and smells funny. Having said that, the food was good and the service amazing. Meat was very well cooked and mashed potatoes tasty.
