Visited last night with my wife and another couple. Made reservations via yelp no issues it worked great! We are seated quickly and were even able to change tables because we don't like our position where we were. Thank you! What a great cocktail menu! Some very interesting variations on classics as well as some of their own creations. I... More

This is a bar that I cannot wait to return to. Their drinks are fresh, and many made from scratch such as their homemade ginger beer.... Incredible! But truly as wonderful as the drinks are, and I'm not a big drinker, the food is the star of this establishment. My taste buds where exploding with everything we tried and in... More

The food and the hand-crafted, specialty cocktails are wonderful here! The owners have put a lot into making this place stand out in an area with lots of other options. I heartily recommend 320 Main!

I had some happy hour here and sat in the dining area. It took a bit to get seated but my salty chihuahua came right away. I ordered the roasted peppers and I was told they were a bit hot today. Wow they were. Waited for the animal fries and ate them with that. Animal fries are excellent. A quick... More

My husband and I come here a lot with our friends. Their drinks and food are great but a little pricey. They used to have amazing duck fat fries, but they changed their menu and now the fries have a gravy on it that we don't like as much. I recommend going during their happy hour or for an event...

Based on the menu we had high expectations for a relaxing evening at a new restaurant for us. The noise level was piercing and shrill to say the least....from the kitchen clanging to the patrons of the bar/dining room carrying on like they are at home. The food quality was enjoyable but at entrees ranging from $24-36 they should be.... More

So my wife and I tried 320 on Main for the first time tonight. We ordered the bread and scallop ceviche. The bread was great but the ceviche never arrived...strike one. The mai tai was very good, no complaints about that. I ordered the top sirloin which came with potatoes and spinach and mushroom. Steak was pretty good, potatoes were... More

Wedge salad was great! Thick sliced bacon with roquefort hits the spot. Beet salad as good if not better! Steaks well prepared and served as ordered. Decent Scotch selection. Fun venue - looking forward to my next visit.

Got a waitress who kept blaming the kitchen being backed up for her forgetting to put in our ticket ( I know because the table next to us of hers got their brussel sprouts before us, when we had ordered it much prior). But the food was great, except for a strange poached egg on tasteless tuna that came with... More

the menu here is very small with only a few things to choose from but appetizers and drinks were great. It is centured almost half way through the town of Seal Beach. Patio to sit on while people watching.

Description
Seal Beach's intimate 320 Main long ago set the benchmark in Orange County for cutting edge, creative craft cocktails. Owners Jason & Rebecca Schiffer have all but perfected the art of re-imagining popular cocktail recipes, utilizing the latest techniques and ingredients, all the while refining their standard cocktail repertoire that pays homage to America's greatest gift to the culinary world.

In a recent effort to re-imagine the food offerings of the dining room menu to the level of the drinks menu, 320 Main recently appointed Chef Jaime Carrano, who now brings a similar ethos to the kitchens of 320. An alumni of prestigious kitchens in Southern California including Bouchon Beverly Hills and Charlie Palmer at South Coast Plaza, as well as New York City's acclaimed Aureole, Chef Carrano's new menus feature a delicious offering of accessible American cuisine, utilizing classic French techniques and the freshest and finest of ingredients.

Food and drink should not only feed your body but also feed your soul.
