“High Quality Seafood on the Water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We had a very good seafood dinner at the Bluefish during our recent stay in Redondo Beach. The restaurant is very attractive and offers terrific views of the harbor at sunset. Everything about this dinner was first rate-the service, the bar, the fresh grilled seafood, and the yummy desserts. If you're in the area and want really good seafood, this is the place.

“inconsistent but overall good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Four of us ate here on 2 nights (we were in Redondo over a week as one of our party was ill). On each night one of our main courses was poor - and both times it was the fresh fish - dried out. service a bit iffy too. but otherwise this is a great place to eat. Much better than the cheescake factory nearby - but not as good as the chart house also nearby. the latter is the one to go to for really superb fish, views and service.

“Cute place by the marina, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

This was the first place we ate in California starting our drive up the pch. It was very nice and great brunch food. Loved looking at the boats in the water while we ate.

“Excellent Seafood and Nice Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The Redondo Beach setting makes this a perfect place. The appetizers were fabulous and the view of the marina is excellent at sunset. Get a table on the marina side and enjoy a nice glass of wine at sunset.
