Food, drinks, lunch, service, ambience, location, view. All fantastic: 5/5!! Great place for a relaxing lunch or brunch. On weekend they have a brunch menu all day - so you can have pizza and eggs!

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.

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.

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.

No, it doesn't. At night, it's not too difficult to find a spot if you are willing to all a little. Or go with the Ocean Express from LAX area or Uber.

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.
