A wonderful dining experience in a breathtaking location. Dinner was excellent -- fresh fish, fresh vegetables, amazing preparations. Great wine list, too.

A very good experience in every way from the bloody marys with bacon, yes bacon, a great twist, to the appetizers all handled by a friendly, engaging service staff.

Went to the opening a few years ago and liked it. The food is excellent but a little on the pricey side and the place is the best for unobstructed views of the many spectacular sunsets. Weekends are very crowded with young and loud people. I rather go during the week, when less crowded and more peaceful. For those who... More

Everything is good here! The appetizers and deserts are my favorite! I love the tagliatelle & hamachi crudo. Make reservations so you get a good table!

Stopped in for a drink before going to dinner. The bar has a beautiful view of the pier and ocean. One of the few places in Manhattan that do. Service was so, so. Pricey, but what do you expect.

Held a private customer appreciation dinner event here this past week for 14 people. We were in the downstairs wine cellar which, while not having ocean views, is quite gorgeous with a modern yet warm feeling with a beautiful wood dining table. The meal was delicious (folks particularly enjoyed the steaks, chops and fish) with options that appealed to everyone.... More

Highly recommended. A good menu that has something for everyone. Pizza was excellent, perhaps the best I've had outside the New York area. Hamachi crudo was excellent. So was the sea bass.

If the objective is a restaurant with the nicest view in Manhattan Beach, then this is the place. It is a also a very nice place to grab a pre-dinner drink with friends. On the other hand, the food is decidedly average when compared to other restaurants within a couple of blocks. If you come for dinner, you will remember... More

Stopped here for lunch after driving up the coast from Dana Point. Cool location with great view of the pier. Atmosphere was fine but the menu was over thought. They added bizarre flavors to items that didn't require them making them less tasty. I had a wood fired pepperoni pizza and they distorted the taste. My wife ordered a heirloom... More
