We booked a table for my Sister in laws 50th Birthday as the restaurant online website made it look the perfect place to celebrate Sues Birthday. The overall appearance is very classy and up market. We were very impressed with the overall look of the restaurant. We sat down at a window seat ( as per my request). The waiter came over to take our drinks order & left the menus, we looked at the menu and to be quite honest we weren’t very impressed, they apparently changed it on a regular basis but on this occasion it didn’t “float our boat”. We ordered starters ( I had oysters) my wife was still eating hers when the waiter started cleaning the dishes from the table !! Bit rude when she was trying to eat !! We were informed that we had to order quickly as “The kitchen was about to close”. ( we booked at 8.30pm!)
The main course was ok but all we found them a little lacking in flavour!!! Which when you looked at the menu and ingredients was really surprising!! The waiter seamed to just want to go home so we didn’t order desert . They did however bring some small donut type pastries with a candle in ! Overall I would some the evening up as “All show and no substance “. We wouldn’t book again I’m afraid.

Our brunch was absolutely delicious! My husband had the chicken and waffles and it was to die for. Much better than back home in Philadelphia. This is a must if you’re in LA. Nothing beats a great meal overlooking Manhattan Beach.

We had some food at the bar, this place have a beautiful panoramic views of Manhattan Beach, Bobby at the bar was very personable,great with drinks, and knowledgeable of the menu, their hamachi crudo appetizer was amazing, the portions are generous on the bar menu. Besides many flat bread options wish the bar menu had more food options.

We booked a reservation at the Strand House for our anniversary, and felt like VIPs from the minute we walked in to this restaurant with a stunning location. We were lucky enough to be seated at the windows overlooking the beach at sunset, and it just got better after that. We were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne by our exemplary server, Phil, and proceeded to a superb dinner of branzino. Our dinner concluded with a delectable chocolate tart with coconut gelato. Sheer bliss, from start to finish.
The ambiance of the restaurant is very welcoming, chic but not overly stuffy, and we noticed a number of diners enjoying a conversation with neighboring tables. Over all, what a welcoming place to enjoy a lovely dinner!
