“What a view”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Just went there for cocktails and was surprised to find that it was Happy Hour (on a Saturday!). Drinks great, prices great, view outstanding. Will go back and eat there soon as the food that was passing us looked spectacular.

“Outstanding food and view of the marina.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

I started with the rustic tomato soup which was thick and very pleasantly spiced. Followed by the halibut - cooked to perfection. The staff was attentive but not intrusive. Overall a wonderful experience. Not ovrrpriced for the quality of the food and service. Hope to return soon!

“Special Salads”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I've only been in twice for a late brunch and only ordered a salad and a seafood salad, but have they BOTH been special. And on both occasions we had our pick of a table at the window so we had lovely, unobstructed Marina views.
I know the restaurant is known for its well-recognized menu. I haven't heard any complaints about the food. And, when I've passed by after 6PM and seen the parking lot full, it does appear busy at dinner.
So go accordingly. I've only been in after the weekend lunch crowd departed, so we felt like we practically had the place to ourselves. Attentive service, absolutely.

“Marina del Rey view with good wine menu”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Had my birthday dinner here with family. This is my second visit from Louisiana. Good food, great service, nice view. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Pretty good wine menu. Great desserts and ICE Wine if you want to spend the money.
