We decided to eat here on our way down to San Diego from Culver City based on TA reviews. From the minute we walked in and were greeted and seated by PJ, the experience was absolutely perfect. Everyone on staff is friendly and helpful (and beautiful,,,,but that's to be expected in cali) We started with the spicy tuna tempura which... More

Enjoyed a business dinner here recently and the setting overlooking the sunset over the pacific was awesome! The drinks and food were also really great. Started with a dozen oysters and followed with a really nice pan seared grouper. The service was also top notch. We then enjoyed a nice after dinner walk along the boardwalk down to Hermosa Beach....

It's not too often that I can say I had a perfect meal but I had one here! There's a lack of rooftop/oceanview dining options on Manhattan beach, so we were really happy to find this gem! They kindly took a walk-in from us, before their reserved table was scheduled to arrive an hour or so later. We sat at... More

I had an artichoke pizza and a delicious desert. Pizza came with a crisp and thin bottom and herbs, spices and extra cheese to the side. Yes, there is a price point. But with the staff being exceptionally friendly it is worth the money.

This restaurant has the best views I. The area. Ask for a window table the you can't go wrong. Stay away from the booth with larger parties. They can be uncomfortable, especially, for business groups. The food is, in my opinion average. I think they bank on their location. That said, breakfast is great and hard to screw up. The... More

We needed a restaurant near Hermosa Beach for an early Sunday dinner before going to a comedy club. Our first three picks couldn't take us until 8p. Thank goodness they couldn't. We lucked out with the fourth pick -- The Strand House in Manhattan Beach. While we were having a drink waiting for the dining room to open for dinner,... More

This Manhattan Beach spot provides it all, service, food and view. The pizza, fries, drinks, salads and pasta are great and if you can gather a group to just order a bunch of starters to share you will be in great shape to explore their twist on many of your comfort food favorites.

We were quite happy with the overall setting and the delicious food at the Strand House. It was a fun people-watching place - with gorgeous people around us but it didn't have a stuffy or 'pretty-people-only' feel, as there were plenty of 'plain folks' like us. The water and beach views are spectacular and sunset is the defining view -... More

This restaurant was featured on The Travel Channel so I was eager to add it to my Must Do list when my trip to California arrived. From the appetizer, to the entrees and the great service, this was a sublime experience. Would absolutely eat here again.

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.
