Went with friends for a birthday celebration. Our menus were even personalized with the birthday person's name. The food was delicious and the view from our table spectacular.

Let me start off by saying that everyone at The Strand House was friendly and service was very good. We went on a weekday for lunch and made reservations requesting a table next to the window. My friend was visiting from the Midwest and I wanted her to see the ocean. Our table had a perfect view of the ocean... More

Excellent service, craft cocktails and delicious food. A bit pricey, but an excellent experience. I was able to find vegan options on the menu, and the staff was accommodating and attentive.

Came here on Mothering Sunday weekend (but on Sat) and it was obviously very busy but the staff dealt with it all in a very calm manner and the level of service was excellent and friendly. We had a great seat on the corner of the upstairs balcony with the most fabulous views to the beach. We ordered large prawns... More

Another business trip. Another dinner alone but a great experience regardless. One glass of California Cab Sav and two seafood entrees. The first the Norwegian king Crab and suddenly I'm loving crab for the first time. Bloody hell this crab is outstanding! Soft, flavoursome and in a dill sauce. Beautiful. The other starter was the octopus with a hint of... More

Pricey restaurant but that comes with the view and location plus the small but special menu. There is something for most everyone and be prepared to enjoy many different dishes some prepared in a new and interesting way. Good selection of wines and typical drinks and waters. Bring a thick wallet and go wild on your selections

Probably three of the best meals. Halibut, grilled octopus, scallops followed by the most incredible dessert -- s'mores like something that was to die for. Wonderful service. Beautiful view. Modern decor. Everything good to say. Nothing negative.

Great restaurant. The views are stunning and the food was amazing. Had cauliflower mashers, very good. Wouldn't have known they were not potatoes if it didn't say so on the menu. Service was just right to get some business accomplished.

Actually, hardly anything on the menu looked interesting to me, but we were a party of four so we could sample three appetizers, four entrees, and two deserts. I think there was a salad or two in the mix, too. The end result is, every single item was just extremely delicious! (and all four of us have this same opinion)... More

We had a long layover in the way to Tahiti. $30 cab ride, about 15 minutes from LAX. Realized we had eaten here 22 years ago on the way to New Zealand when it was called Beaches. Right near the pier. Great view of the ocean/beach/sand volleyball courts. Late afternoon appetizer menu is served until 5:00. Excellent wine list. Treated... More

Down at the beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean,The Strand House rises elegantly and iconically above the breakers. Like in an oceanfront home, friends become family and strangers become friends.
