The food was great. The wine is overpriced.
There was an extremely loud table near us- it was difficult to hear the others at the table.

My husband and I had a great time. The view was beautiful, the service was great and we had a wonderful time. The food was expensive but really good. We knew we were paying for the view as well as the food. I ordered the French toast and chicken and my husband ordered the burger. My only criticism is that we ordered alcoholic beverages with brunch and both drinks tasted watered down. We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Good experience overall.

Dine LA is the best and the dinner special did not disappoint. I had the very delicious Cuban pork and my BFF enjoyed her steak.
The service was also impeccable, another great nite in the city.

When we arrive to the restaurant the host didn’t greet us. She then pointed to our table. Once we sat down she came over placed menus in the middle of the table then left without saying a word to us. We waited about 15 minutes for service, I then had to approach someone to get assisted. Once the server came everything was good. However one of the entrees the ceviche had stale chips. The desert passion fruit cake was dry. Over all a party of 5 spent about 400 dollars in just food and drinks not including tip. For service and quality I did not think it was worth it.

The staff was awesome in accommodating our party of 9. We were seated at 2 tables close to each other. Very nice atmosphere. We had a very nice view of the marina. The food was ok. Not very memorable. So much fun enjoying my friends birthday. The drinks were great, pretty strong. Nice selection of wines & tequila. The service was awesome, very fast. The staff was great!! I will come back & try other food options. I ordered a dish with steak, mussels, salmon and shrimp (busy right). It was ok. The food was cool when it came out. My friends ordered Meyers Chicken, pork dish, skirt steak, Brussel sprouts, ceviche, carrot cake, and peach cobbler. Everything was just ok. Nothing to rave about.

I will come back for the ambiance & the great service!! Nice date night spot.

Having relied on the pics to set up my expectations, I was disappointed. It was not exactly what the pics portray. Not sure if it is due to COVID or if the pics are just old? There were no lounge chairs,only regular tables and it was a gloomy day so the place looked very average, not for a special occasion. The mixed drinks tasted like syrup but our waiter was fantastic and the food was good.

Not a fan of the menu change up. I want to give grace to all restaurants during this time as I know they are having to make changes and adapt to keep their doors open — however, there’s hardly any cocktails or meals on the new menu we care for so won’t be back. Wish them the best!

Kenny, our server, was incredibly polite and made my wife and I feel very special. He also had great recommendations. The tables were dirty, the prices were a bit high, and our table was wobbly. Other than that, the selections we made were great thanks to Kenny.

Service was poor. Had to keep asking waitress for more water. No substitutes on sides. If you wanted the Dine LA special the whole table had to order it. Made no attempt to seat us where we requested nor did they acknowledge the birthday special request

What a wonderful time we had. I like the fact that I could make a reservation for only 2 people and the table was ready when we walked in. We had a lovely view of the beach and the breeze on a very hot summer night was just what we wanted. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We will be going again.

The only thing this place has going is the location. We were told “It’s the luck of the draw” as to where you are seated. So, if you’re stuck under the hot sun with no shade or umbrella and you don’t want to be, you’re out of luck. Food was some of the worst I’ve tasted. Chips with the ceviche were borderline stale. The salmon on the salad was not seasoned. The pork for the Cubano sandwich was dry & tasteless. If the food is delicious, I don’t mind the cost because good quality, presentation & taste are important. Here, I felt I wasted my money. First and last visit to this place.

Wonderful to sit outside in the beautiful sunshine with palm trees and beach. There isn’t really a better location in MDR and this was our first restaurant meal since March. We felt very safe. Also, the tater tots are literally to die for... everyone of us loved our meal.

I live in Venice and have not been out for a nice lunch with a friend since the pandemic hit. Since we needed to dine outdoors I looked online and saw Beachside listed and thought YES! It was exactly what I wanted and needed. Outdoor dining with a view of the marina. Beautiful patio, peaceful and lovely. The hotel is really nice a total sleeper if you don't know about it you should. The rooms are great, my family always stays here when they come into town. Our reservation was for 12:30. We were practically the only people there. We stayed till 4:00 it was heaven! The food was good. they have a very limited menu, but the items on it were very well prepared and priced reasonably. Our lunch came out to about $25 each (no alcohol) including tip. There is lots of parking available all around the hotel. Highly recommend. We will be coming back for sure!

I can't decide what was worse: the food quality or the service. I'm especially conscious that wait staff are under new pressures under covid but the service we received at Beachside was reprehensible under any circumstance. From waiting an absurdly long time to be seated to the attitude of the bartender-host and rudeness of our waiter, the experience started in the negative. It's also worth mentioning that the walkway and marina were filthy so the beachside views were less than spectacular. We heard more than one other couple mumble that they hoped the food was worth the lackluster service and ambiance. It wasn't. I'm sure that under normal conditions the food is made with care given the upmarket prices. But our fish was cold, and the potatoes and salmon were obviously frozen at one point and done in the microwaved at another. This was supposed to be a birthday dinner for my mother. We asked for the check before the meal was done and decided to forgo any birthday desert. Hopefully this place sorts itself out.
