We were at a Best Buy in Manhattan Beach and the lady there suggested the Strand for lunch. We were able to find a spot with a meter, no problem, for 2 hours. We walked down the hill to the restaurant and asked for a view of the ocean. We were taken to a seat for two right by the... More

I visited recently for lunch, quite annoyed after it taking 30 minutes to find a parking spot. The hostess quickly seated us next to the bar...... because we needed it! Our server was attentive, fun, & knew the menu inside out. We enjoyed great cocktails & a delicious lunch while overlooking the main restaurant floor inside and the beautiful Pacific... More

I have to plead guilty to a little bias here because I know the manager, nevertheless, the title of this review says it all. Not only is the view excellent, the restaurant is constructed in such a way that it takes full advantage of the location. It is split level with the bar below and the dining above. Besides excellent... More

Absolutely amazing! Food was delicious. We order pizza and Brussels sprouts for appetizers and i had the tuna aioli salad and it was delicious. The view is perfect and service was really good. I would recommend.

Great place to have a drink, chill or hang with friends. Bar service is excellent and view of the pier and ocean is fantastic For the price food is marginal. Had the pork chop. It had great flavor, just a little dry and plate was a little bland. For $35 not sure was worth it with many better food options... More

Some ladies and I celebrated a milestone birthday and were treated exceptionally. Table by the awesome view at sunset and complimentary champagne on arrival. Topped it off with complimentary dessert and our bday cake. Our waiter Brandon was very attentive to us and made it extra special, he even took care of our almost-expired parking meter. An extraordinary visit.

The tarte flambée was good, a little heavy on the cheese, the deco is nice and the location great. I am very disappointed though that a restaurant featuring 40 dollars a bottle wines would not list at least a couple of organic ones in each of the categories.

Did not need reservations to sit at the bar. Nice view and nice atmosphere for a conversation. Wide selection of drinks, beer and wine. Ate the chicken dinner that came with sweet potatoes and veggies. It was an average portion and good. Would go back if in the area.

You can't beat the view at sunset. So pretty! Good (enough) food, good drinks. Good crowd too for that matter. Mix of tourists and locals. Dress to impressish (it's so chill lots of jeans but folks dress up too)
