- It was just one thing...AkaFlacoVIPDined on 10/12/2014The Warehouse has been a Marina del Rey institution for 45 years. The food is competent, the servers are friendly, but it is surviving on the tourist trade. I went back for the first time in over 20 years recently, and found that it felt as dated as one would expect after so long. The decor and furnishings feel like the come from a kitsch museum. My dinner was spoiled by a trip to the men's room, which while ostensibly clean, contained an indescribable odor of death, or sewage, or a combination of the two, that caused me to have to hold my shirt over my nose. Those visiting the ladies room reported the same smell, which lingered long after leaving the restaurant and spoiled my memories of passable food and a pleasant dinner with friends.Special Features:
- I love everything except...OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/11/2014There was supposed to be entertainment and the band had cancelled. I was very disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- alexander1975Dined on 10/4/2014Food was great great atmosphere recommend this restaurantSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice late lunch!oleyDined on 10/3/2014We arrived at 3PM about two hours ahead of our reservation, so we had a late lunch rather than dinner.` The outside seating was very nice, marina view, a bit hot but not too much so. The staff was attentive and the food was very good. Valet parking is the only option although there were less than 10 parties in the restaurant.Special Features:
- kingDined on 9/27/2014we were here for my birthday,and it was great.The food and ambiance were fantastic.I would highly recommend this place for any celebration.Special Features:
- I think my waiter was drunkKhiraDined on 9/12/2014I love The Warehouse and it's food. This time my family went for dinner on a Friday night which is also their salsa night. We sat outside and the waiter we had just seemed to be under the influence of something. We sat at the table right by the stairs when you first enter the patio area, he so so lazy that when he served us our food it didn't even bother to come down the 3 stairs, he just reached over the banister and dropped out food on the table. My mother, brother and I ordered drinks, appetizers, and each a main entrée so you can imagine what our bill came up to for 3 ppl ordering that amount of food at The Warehouse. My mother and I split the bill she tipped him I didn't. I just couldn't. Comment was left.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- WorldtravelerDined on 9/12/2014Outdated decor, lackluster service. Nice location on the marina.Special Features:
- Dinner at WarehouseMl5024VIPDined on 9/1/2014We dine here frequently whenever we are in CA. It is within walking distance of where we stay. Always a great choice. This last time our steaks were too well done and we sent them back. We will return in spite of this minor glitch.Special Features:
- Never disappoints!ScottiePVIPDined on 9/1/2014I've been here several times, always a good experience. They have one of my favorite Sunday Brunch buffets including a great omelette bar and bottomless mimosas. Dinner time is always great as well with good food and friendly service. And certain nights of the week they even feature live music in the bar! Right on the marina so it's nice to sit outside and enjoy the view as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- MHuntVIPDined on 8/31/2014Dined here many times over the years. Lately it seems not to be consistent with service and food. Maybe it was crowded and being a holiday weekend they were a little overwhelmed. I won't write this restaurant off as have had many great meals and experiences in the past, but needs to be more attention put on the food and service to compete with nearby Marina restaurants.Special Features:
- Poor selection of entreRhonnedDined on 8/31/2014Went specifically for the lobster. Restaurant did not have lobster. Asked the price for the crab legs, $51. Outrageous!! No handicap parking available, had to park in lot , not valet parking.Special Features:
- Jonathan's BirthdayFoodieLadyDined on 8/24/2014We went for brunch to celebrate my youngest son's birthday. The food as usual was excellent. We had a great time. The photographer that took pictures was very nice. Our waiter was very attentive. Although, this restaurant is owned by the same people that own "The Smokehouse", "The Warehouse" is much more friendly and accommodating to children and disabled children/people.Special Features:
- Warehouse ExperienceflopDined on 8/19/2014I took my husband to the Warehouse on Aug 19 the food and service was absolutely terrible. Steaks were burnt no offer of compensation made, I ordered a Budweiser waiter brought it out to me and said this is the last one we have > I asked if there was any type of candle lighting they could put on patio table where we were seated said yes but never brouhjt to the table the patio grounds were dirty I will never go there again or reccommend.
- anniversarysweetpotatoDined on 8/16/2014Our first date was here 25 years ago and we came back for a romantic anniversary dinner on the patio, we were not disappointed. Our server Mike was great, he's has been here for as long as we've been married. The baked sweet potato is the best thing I've ever eaten and my husband loved his halibut. We usually come to brunch with our kids, who love the chocolate fountain and waffles, but it was nice to have an adult dinner with live music in the background.Special Features:
- Oldie Goldie!LetseatDined on 8/16/2014Happy to see place refurbished with newly upholstered booths and wood tables. I had the short ribs which were best ever. My lady couldn't decide between the many fresh fish offered so went to the lobster tank and picked her entree. She also went for gigantic sweet potato which she said best one she ever ate!Special Features:
- Great food! Amazing server!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/15/2014We went there on Saturday night for my husband's birthday. The food was great but what made our night even better was our server Orlando. He was AMAZING!!! Very attentive, polite, knowledgeable, just with the greatest attitude ever. He made us feel very welcome.We will definitely go back and also recommend the Warehouse to all of our friends. We will definitely ask for Orlando to take care of us again. Great server!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Seafood or ViewndtmanDined on 8/10/2014If you are looking for fresh seafood - keep looking, this place isn't it.Special Features:
- Most DISGUSTING FOOD EVER!!JenniferVIPDined on 8/10/2014Honestly the worst restaurant in LA. The food was even worse that the horrible service. What a WASTE of money. Just do us a favor and close down…..Gross…..Special Features:
- Nice Marinadel Ry BrunchMPSmithDined on 8/10/2014Good Food. good service and Great location. I would go back.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 8/10/2014Service was nonexistence. We had to ask for a server 10 min after being seated and we had to look for our server and ask more than once and then wait for virtually anything we needed. Cutlery was not clean - fork had stuff on it. Otherwise, food and variety was good for the price.Special Features:
- 3 strikes...Yer out!!!RonXDined on 8/9/2014I had high hopes of enjoying a good bottle of wine along with a fine cut of prime rib.... only to be let down miserably. I selected a cabernet from a quite limited wine list. The waitress came back stating they didn't have that particular wine(strike one! ) so I chose an alternate selection...only to be told again upon the waitress's return that they didn't have that wine either!!! (Strike two! ) The final strike came with my entree incorrectly prepared. I ordered a 16oz. Prime rib and requested a rare-to-medium rare cut... only to again be disappointed with a medium-well cut served in front of me.... dry and chewy. This was more like a 16 oz of prime rob! Oh well.... :(Special Features:
- Note to managment....likablesortDined on 8/9/2014So sad,It was my Mothers 87 birthday and i made the plans for the family....Big mistake...The service was terrible...We had to ask for everything,Bread on the table...water...appetizer plates...lemons for the iced tea...He brought those in a coffee mug...By the time we got the plates, the appetizers were cold...When i asked what was going on, I was told they didn't schedule enough people for the day...Bad management..The waiter started to take the order,stopped after 6 orders,said he would be right back,then went off to take the order for a party of thirty...He finished taking the order twenty minutes later...The food was good but the service was very bad....Special Features:
- Interesting ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 8/7/2014This place definitely has character inside and out. The decor and ambiance are great, and the food is hit and miss. Our entrees were fantastic, but the clam chowder tasted completely of cream and nothing else. Also, we were seated in a booth facing the ocean, which was lovely except for it was hard to get a waiters attention.Special Features:
- Good (as usual)LosAngelesExPatDined on 7/20/2014Went back to The Warehouse again, this time with my wife and daughter. Food was great. We opted to sit outside this time, as the sun had not gone down yet, and consequently was not starting to get gold yet. Nice view of the Marina - there was some regatta finishing up or some similar event going-on. The only complaint I would say, was that our entrees seemed to take longer that I would have thought. We arrived for our reservation at about 6:30 PM and were seated nearly immediately, then ordered and had some drinks and appetizers. The main entrees didn't arrive until about 7:30 PM. Luckily, we were in no hurry and having no plans for immediately after dinner. Of course, all the food was wonderful - just was an unusually long wait.Special Features:
- Great VarietyOdieDined on 7/20/2014Loved the food...such a variety. Best of everything!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great service!Samik81Dined on 7/20/2014Walter was an amazing waiter, he kept the mimosas coming and kept us happy...thanks Walter! Also, I made a reservation through Open Table and was seated immediately..no waiting!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/13/2014The outside patio was a great place to sit, however, there was a table which had a gentleman that was smoking which detracted from being able to enjoy outside. Our server was not very attentive and the food was only average. Out of 6 diners, only 1 was truly happy with their meal. Finally, I indicated in my Open Table reservation as well as when I arrived to the restaurant that we were there to celebrate a 30th wedding anniversary. I understand if it is not policy to provide a dessert or anything to guests celebrating - however, no one mentioned a congratulations or any sort of well wishing to the couple which was a bit frustrating. I don't believe I will be visiting again.
- JazzyMelDined on 7/6/2014I come here every year for my birthday brunch and I have never ever been disappointed. I love this place and the staff is very friendly. See you all next year around this time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tired, Slow Service, But Great ViewVeggieluvVIPDined on 7/4/2014We came here on the 4th of July because the restaurant has a valet lot and a view of the fireworks. It took so long to get our meals that we practically missed the fireworks. I realize it was a holiday and they were busy, but they did not appear to be swamped, yet the kitchen took forever to bring out four dinners. The food is not terrible, and definitely not great. Go for the view of the harbor, but don't expect a lot.Special Features:
- Good Option in Marina del ReyGilADined on 7/4/2014We had dinner here on the Fourth of July and got a view of the fireworks at 9 p.m. The food and atmosphere were good. It was a bit hard to get our server's attention, though, probably due to the restaurant's being so full for the holiday.Special Features:
- Great for luncheorn guests!EvelDined on 7/2/2014The valet service was great I had a reservation so seating was quick. The service was fast and excellent. I took 3 male guests who were very happy with the view, the quality of the food and the service. All our entrees were generous. The bread was hot and excellent tasting. The seafood and the burger were excellent. I will return soon as I live close by and eat out for lunch often. I was happy that beef is on the menu for my one guest who is not interested in seafood for fish. Lucky me!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/1/2014you need bring back bands to dance too. 70-80s bands not salsaSpecial Features:
- Repeat visit to the WarehouseTownsendDined on 6/28/2014Still love it. My parents took me when I was nine. Took my grandkids and spouse on Father's Day. the food still tastes the same, the mai tias are great and will give you a buzz if you don't stir it up when you first get it. Look forward to going again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- The following 467 reviews are from the The Warehouse reviews archive.
- Really cool place but that's it.FoodloverVIPDined on 6/21/2014This place was cool to look at but service and food was terrible. Our server talked more than helped. Food was dry and some things over cooked with no flavor. It's to bad because this was a really cool looking restaurant, felt like we were at Disneyland.
- Great seafoodDrGOVIPDined on 6/18/2014As expected, seafood was wonderful and the view was really nice. More creativity on the menu needed.Special Features:
- Still as good as ever!LosAngelesExPatDined on 6/15/2014My wife (of only a few years) was wanting to try someplace she had never been for our Father's Day dinner. I had been about 15+ years since I had last been to The Warehouse - way before I met my wife. I wanted a good Steak and some sides, and my wife wanted Surf & Turf. So, this was a good fit. The place has not really changed since the last time I was there (15+ years ago), and this is a good thing. The food and service had always been good there. My Fillet was excellent, as was my wife's "split-cargo" (surf-and-turf) Fillet & Prawns. We also had some sides and opted for some excellent Cappuccino ice-cream for dessert. This night was just the wife and I. Will definitely come back again another time, with the broader family.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DissapointingBeckster72VIPDined on 6/15/2014This place is past it's prime and needs a seriously overhaul. It reminds me of a bad hotel in Vegas. The service was nonexistent. They gave my husbands dinner to someone else so we waited for forever for our food and mine was totally cold. The food itself was just acceptable and clearly was not good quality. Will not bother going back again
- MichaelLove2eatagainDined on 6/15/2014The atmosphere is awesome! Request an outside table for the true marina experience. Can't wait to return next month for more great dining.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Oblivious waiter!LAinWLADined on 6/14/2014The food and ambiance were fantastic, but my diet coke was completely flat, and the waiter kept INSISTING that there was nothing wrong with their machine. Nobody from the restaurant took the time to TASTE the diet coke. The waiter just kept telling me that it "looked fizzy" when it was coming out of the machine. I said that may be true, but it is completely flat now that you've brought it to the table. He attempted to bring me a diet coke poured from a bottle that he admitted was "already open." It was a small detail but annoying enough to make me not want to return. If you're serving carbonated beverages, you need to have someone taste test your machine on a daily basis! Especially at a place that presents itself as "upscale!"Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
