Reserve for table by window overlooking beach, we had corner, awesome. Four diners, two with chopped salads, beautifully presented, fresh. One with burger and fries, excellent. Huevos rancheros in a skillet, shredded top beef, black beans, egg on top with crispy chips. Everything top marks. Hang out for the donut dessert too, looked nice, we did not try. Less than $50 for two with tax and tip, no alcohol. Might be cheaper places to eat at the beach....but did I mention the view. LOL.

Appealing from the outside, beautiful interior, but very limited menu. Food was also disappointing.
Would not recommend.

The view is awesome, the atmosphere is amazing but the food is overpriced and not that tasty! Large price tag, small taste! It's too bad because they have everything else going for them. Nice place to go for Happy Hour or dance at night!

This is the place to go for a gorgeous view of our Manhattan Beach beach ( and ocean ) actually it's the only restaurant in Manhattan with more than a tiny peek at the water. The peeks are to be found at the Ocean View Cafe, and from two tables at Mangiamo. So it's definitely worth it for the view. The interior of the Strand house is also stunning. Foodwise it varies. Sometimes very good other times barely okay. And what's with the Parker House rolls? An extremely poor substitute for real bread. Wine choices are great, but very expensive. Service is usually pretty good, sometimes excellent. My favorite dish? The kale salad. If you're in town at least go for a drink. Afternoon and sunset are great for the view. Night not so much, too much illumination to see the ocean well. But as I said the room is stunning and you'll find the crowd convivial.

Honestly, everything was wonderful because of the service, the view and the most outrageous donuts for desert. Its crazy how difficult it is to find good restaurants with ocean views on the coast in Southern California. This place is worth coming back to....You have to order the donuts.
