  • "We were seated then had to wait 5 minutes. finally a waitress asked us it we needed menus. WHAT??? Also found out if you want bread you have to request it. WHAT??? Food is ok to good. Service is a joke."

  • "Booked online and had our request for a view fulfilled which is always nice. The food was very nice and we all ate our fill. I had the burger whilst my mother and wife both had the rissotto and the blue crab salad. No problems with food, drinks, service or anything at all. You can also park your own car at no charge."

  • "Beachside is a touristy restaurant, near the hotel we stayed in on recent trip. The food is good, better than I expected and the service was good, too."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We had reservation. We came on time and we were seated perfectly. But 20 minutes sitting and no one dared enough to approach us for drinks or order or just say hi we will be with you shortly. Worse is waiters are going back and forth the tables around us. Only when we waived to a waiter that we were finally got noticed. Good lord!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food is well prepared but not exceptional. However, you should enjoy the out door dining with a view of the beach. The Happy Hour menu, mostly appetizers is very good deal."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Our server was very poor and seemed to be bothered by us being there. The food was good but not amazing. We enjoyed the location and prices were fair but with the service it would be hard to want to go back."

  • "Went for their brunch and enjoyed it. Was quiet when we went arrived but by the time we left it was very busy, I would go back for an easy breakfast/lunch."

  • "The ahi tuna salad and mahi mahi were very good and Tyler took great care of us! Overall it was a super evening. We had such a good experience we went back the next night for happy hour. The fish tacos were delicious & service was stellar again. We look forward to enjoying the nice patio next time when it's better weather."

  • "Had to ask to get served and that set the stage for a bad experience. We almost got up and left."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Slow service just killed this client/dinner experience at the Beachside Restaurant. Although the food selection was generally good, one in our group sent back her dry and overdone entree. Unfortunately, that was the last we saw of our waitress for 20+ minutes. When the newly redone dish reappeared, all of the other meals had been finished, making for the rise of an awkward situation and a bagging of the item for take home. Geez!.... Although, the entree was removed from the bill, the gesture was simply too little, too late. Making matters worse, the waitress informed me of the 18% compulsory tip for tables 6 or more upon presenting the check... Sorry Beachside, no recommendation possible for missing the mark."

  • "We had an amazing experience celebrating a special birthday. We were a large group and Management was incredibly accommodating, service was excellent and the setting was of course wonderful. Thank you!"

  • "Met a college friend here for a Friday night dinner. The patio was a relaxing happy atmosphere overlooking the boat docks and beach, the food very good and the service was outstanding."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The food was delicious, but it was impossible to get drinks and order our meals. After our food was delivered it was like they had forgotten we were sitting there."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Valentines Day date for me and my girlfriend, the view was amazing, the food was outstanding, and the service was way above par. We both ordered the salmon and it was cooked to perfection. I tested our waiter (I hate that I can't remember his name) asking him what would be a nice wine for pairing with my fish. He did not disappoint with a lovely Pinot noir red wine, we sat outdoors with the water to our side and enjoyed our lovely dinner. Will definitely dine here again."

  • "Arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation time. The hostess seemed very rushed and stressed and barely greeted us and was not at all friendly. She didn't tell us where we could wait so we sat down in the lounge area. We thought someone might come to take a drink order from us - no one came. We almost left but waited close to 30 minutes & when I saw new customers being seated before us I went to check in again with the hostess to see how much longer it would be. She didn't seem to recognize us or apologize for the wait & said have a table available now. Still not very friendly. Thankfully our expericnce was saved by a fantastic waiter and delicious food. I would return for the food, but I hope the restaurant has a different hostess."

  • "We ate here for Valentine's day. The decorations were lovely and the atmosphere romantic with lights reflecting off of the Marina. I had an excellent Ahi tuna salad and he had sole with potatoes. All good. He likes the beer selection and I had a nice glass of wine. It was not crazy-crowded, just enough company."

  • "Food, ambience is always good. Our server needed to be kept on track, but was a nice person. Will opt for another on my next visit."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The ambience, service and food were absolutely excellent! Our rowdy group of 8 was on the way to a concert. The hostess was very pleasant and managed to allay our fears when the previous party at our table was not in a rush to leave. She assured us that they staff would have us out the door on time. They succeeded. Our server Chris was spot on. He managed to get all of our orders exactly right-----including salad dressing on the side (a rarity in any establishment I might add) and a "stat" order of truffle french fries. The evening was perfect."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This was one of the highest rated restaurants in the area offering brunch. The menu offered breakfast items on one side and lunch items on the other. There was nothing special/brunch-like about it. We were a party of six. I specifically requested a table by the window to over-look the marina.It overlooked the diners outside on the patio. We were right along the walk way to the bathroom. It was busy and fairly noisy. The waitress was attentive/accommodating. Ordered 2 tap beers, 5 coffees and 2 soft drinks- One pancake, one fritatta, two burgers, one fish and chips and one bagel with lox (no sides- except the french fries that came with fish and burgers). The bill came to $198. The tip was automatically added. The food was not memorable."

  • "This time went for dinner though it is also a favorite happy hour place as well. Nice view of Mother's Beach and the Marina. Great menu. Locals and tourists. You can sit indoors or outdoors."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "It seemed there was a drought of decent restaurants in Marina Del Rey, especially with water views. We discovered the Beachside Restaurant after consulting Yelp and reading the positive reviews. It is hidden inside the Jamaica Bay Hotel. Apparently, the female chef of the Beachside Restaurant is well known, having worked at the Water Grill. The menu is diverse but not overwhelming. My boyfriend had the sole, which is not easy to prepare, and raved about it. I had a hummus starter and a Chinese chicken salad which was fresh and tasty! They had a nice bar menu and happy hour deals as well. Lovely patio and great water views. Great wait staff! Overall, a fine dining experience in a more casual but still lovely environment!"

  • "Hosted a family brunch for relatives picked up at LAX nearby. Terrific friendly staff gave us a great table waterside. The weather was perfect. Choices for everyone on the menu at reasoable prices. The small hotel attached looks charming - may look into it for a little getaway."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "They offer bottomless Mimosas with the order of your entree for 10-15 bucks, but unless you really get on them, your glass may stay empty for a solid 10 minutes before you're able to get a refill. This is my second time coming here for brunch and it was the same way last time too. I wanted to give them another chance but the service now has been consistently slow. It seems like our group was seated for 10 minutes before they even took our drink order. The place does get busy on the weekends during brunch, but the wait times seem unnecessarily long. On top of that, their brunch menu is limited to about 7 different items."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We wanted outdoor dining, with farm to table and organic if possible. Food was very good, but the portions were huge, way too much for us to eat, and we couldn't take food home. It was an expensive waste. Next time we'll look for a restaurant that offers small plates of the entrees."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "A lovely outdoor setting, and nice service, but the food was poor for what you paid for it. Overcooked flat iron steak that tasted strangely gamey, and the bread was stale."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "we went there for New Years Eve prix fixe dinner. They were out of one of the items on theie prix fixe menu, which on a holiday is unacceptable. But the location is beautiful, and walking distance from our home"

  • "The food was great when we went but for some reason the service was terrible on this day. The waitress basically forgot about our group of 6 and it wasn't even packed. We continuously had to go find her to get basic things like water, bread, take orders, etc. I will say I have been to this place before and the service has been much better so I am chalking this up to just our waitress having a bad day."

  • "I'm glad to have found this place on Open Table. I was looking to find a special place and this was it. The food was very good and our waiter Tyler was the best. The staff really made our experience feel special. This is a true local gem. Beachside knows how to treat and serve their customers!"

  • "The fish and chips was great and served on a vintage London Times reproduction. Fun! Grilled swordfish was once and wedge lettuce salad a big winner. The salad was enough for two."
