“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

This place was recommended by our hotel concierge at the Westin Hotel near LAX. Great choice. A short taxi ride took us there. When we were ready to leave there were plenty of taxis to be able to get back to the airport. Saturday brunch was amazing as was the service. The view of the ocean was beautiful! Four of us flew in from Houston for the Eagles concert the night before and wanted to be able to have a nice long brunch before flying back to Houston that day. We were not disappointed! We spent over 2 hours at our table having brunch, drinks, dessert and coffee and never felt rushed by our waiter to leave even though the place was a bit crowded. Sam was our waiter and he took very good care of us. Very friendly, patient with our special food requests and very attentive! We will certainly return!!

“Nice hip place to hang out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Next to manhattan beach, a very in place to hang out. Downstairs is the open bar, filled with confortable sofas, where you can have a drink, eat salads and pizzas.
In the ypper level is the very fancy restaurant.
In front of the waterfront beach, you have a lovely view

“Good food. Good service. Good atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

For a special dinner, this place hit the mark. There's a bar upstairs as well as one downstairs. Drinks are pricey.
Great views, good service, tasty food.
We enjoyed stopping in & dancing in the downstairs bar after dinner. club atmosphere. Younger crowd (20s -30s: women in leather shorts). Worth a visit.

“Good location and nice facilities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

As above but the food leaves quite a bit to be desired. Was there with a large group of colleagues and customers. Service was pretty good but the food only average. Oysters were very fresh!
