I was here for drinks and appetizers in the bar area followed by a group business dinner. The restaurant space is very nice, and the bar has a great sitting area and fireplace. The group dinner was held in a private dining room that appeared to be a room that could be opened up to the outdoors in warm weather. This dining area also had a fireplace, and the setting was very nice. We had a limited group dining menu, but the food was very good. The only odd thing was that this particular room appeared to have napkins shoved between the wall and ceiling for insulation. Otherwise, great atmosphere and service!

Love this place. Decor is very 1989, but the wine list is better than decent and the kitchen knows what they are doing. The view on to the Marina is calming and beautiful.

Two of us had a late dinner. The scallops and the sea bass were the highlight of our dinner. Both dishes were truly excellent; the seafood was fresh, properly cooked and well seasoned. The appetizers weren't quite as good but the service was excellent. The views of the marina are very nice.

We had a business diner here with some 20 people. It was a set menu. The crabcakes were delicious and also the main dish (dover sole) was great. Some of us had a steak which seemed to be great too. As a desert we had fresh berries and a choclate bomb. Awesome! Together with the nice view on the harbour makes this restaurant a great place! Definitely come back here.

This restaurant has a lovely bank of windows looking into Marina Del Rey; at night it's quite lovely. The menu had many inviting items, and they are clearly trying to be an elegant experience - bringing a spiced Tuna on Poppadom amuse bouche, serving a soft foccacia with 2 dipping selections, having good service, and, later, a table visit by the chef. Two of our 3 appetizers were very well received - the Truffle Pizza being the biggest hit, and all 3 entrees were good (both seafood and beef), but the cake layers in the Chocolate Tower desserts were disappointingly dry and grainy. With slight changes, this restaurant could go from good to very good.
