Went here to enjoy what we thought was going to be a lovely girls day. As soon as we sat down, our waitress Courtney, had a very rude and condescending tone. We still proceeded to order our drinks, thinking things would get better. They did not. We paid for the items we ordered and left to another restaurant down the street. Probably will not be back due to the lack of good service.

This is my 3rd or 4th time here and will come back again. Our group enjoyed the brunch, though a little on the expensive side.

The area is gorgeous and the restaurant is set up to be a success. Parking is easy. The downside was the food was overpriced for what you receive. The service was slow. The food itself was nothing special. We made reservations and they still had us wait nearly 20-25 minutes for seating. They didn’t prioritize reservations for outdoor aka better seats, which makes no sense. The cocktails were also on the weaker side.
We would most likely return but perhaps just for a glass of wine to enjoy the view.

We took our daughter there for her birthday and it was an overall very disappointing experience. The food was not good and it was freezing inside the restaurant,our server said the manager wanted both doors open even though the sun was setting and multiple people complained. I really feel we spent a lot of money (for us) for such an off putting experience.

Highly recommend the beef duo and maduros plantains. For dessert, the caramel carrot cake is a must try to say the least ! The service was remarkable from the host to our waiter. The actual dining view of the marina / beach was relaxing. Nice if you want to catch the sunset. The ladies room could use a full length mirror but other than that no complaints. Nice experience, definitely recommend !

The patio area is very nice with a very nice view for our brunch. Although the waiter himself was a very nice and welcoming individual, the overall service was poor! Several times we had to flag down somebody to ask for refills of coffee and drinks. We had to flag down somebody to get our check. We had one request which was to have our fries well done and they came out extremely soggy. They did remedy the issue and the food itself was just good. I would come back just for the patio. By the way, we had drinks from the bar the day before and the cocktails were pricey, but exceptional! Would go back for the patio and drinks anytime!

Raved about this place and brought my family that was in town visiting. To start, they were late seating us. Then I stopped the manger to ask on the status and she was rude saying I have to go check in, which I already did. I said no one is there and she said she’ll be there in a second. After getting seated the server Nahum was very polite. Once getting the food everything was cold. Even the butter on our French toast wasn’t even melting. AT ALL. Fries were cold. The “tender” were more of popper size. After speaking with the manger she was rude and unprofessional in the slang she used. She said she’ll take the French toasts off. Once the bill came with it still on we mentioned it and she came with an attitude. After going back and forth with her on something SHE said she’ll handle they finally fixed the check. Needless to say I probably won’t be dining there any more.

Ok the filet came with what I can only say was a can of cream of mushroom soup dumped on the plate with some potatoes on top of it. In all my decades of dining out I’ve NEVER seen anything like that and it was disgusting! Who thinks that is pleasant or fine dining? I was shocked and horrified. Whoever thought that was a fine dining dish was sorely mistaken and knows nothing about food. It is grey. I mean grey! It looks terrible but if it tasted good you might overlook that but it tastes just like you can imagine a whole can of cream of mushroom soup dumped on a plate would taste like without even a hint of trying to disguise it. How in the heck can what seems like a nice place with a great view right on the water and next to so many wonderful restaurants think this is ok? I wish I could say this was maybe a pandemic related issue but I had it at the same place pre-pandemic! I had erased the awful experience from my memory other dishes were ok but not great. Sad and disappointing. Perhaps this will get them to improve their cuisine as this is not acceptable by any means.

We got the Beachside Pre Fixe Brunch and it was more than excellent. You think you won’t get full with what their serving but trust me it is more than enough.

Just wish there was another course of Mimosas lol.

Very bad experience. Got seated right away when arrived prior to our reservation time. Was not greeted by server, waited for 10-15 mins. A server came by and asked if we’ve been help. We ordered and food came out pretty fast. Overall good tasted good. We waited 20 mins to get our check. No server came to check on us at all!! We looked and nobody come ask if we need help. Was a very bad experience for us to have picked this place!!!

This restaurant is in the Jamaica Bay Inn and has outdoor dining facing Mothers Beach in the Marina Del Rey. It's a great place to dine if you want to escape the heat of the city. I ordered the whole branzino and my wife had a whole lamb shank with ancho sauce. These were two of the best dishes I have had recently. The octopus starter was also terrific.

Amazing atmosphere, food and service. It was branch menu for 2pm reservation when we wanted more like lunch or early dinner. Check the hours before you go so you can order food for branch or dinner on weekends.

My server was
Was nice enough. Food was not good. Asparagus was dry and over powered by the sauce. It was also cold. Bone marrow was a huge disappointment. There was SOOOO much sauce and like a teaspoon of marrow. Sadly disappointed. Did not order an entree and left full plates on the table. Server said nothing. Huge waste of $56

We enjoyed our brunch. I would call to confirm any special requests because they hadn't looked at the request I made on Open Table until we arrived. They did do their best to accommodate our request when got there. I was under the impression that request are looked at in advance or at least the morning of the reservation.
