Beachside Restaurant and Bar
*Reservations politely declined for Happy Hour
Beautiful setting and great food. A little understaffed but everyone was doing their best when we had brunch last Sunday around 1PM. There was an unnecessarily long line just to check in to be put on the wait list or seated and frustrated people were walking out. Also making people wait despite the fact that they had many empty tables led me to believe that they were short of wait staff. It was St. Patrick's day and the first sunny Sunday in many weeks here in LA so maybe they were not prepared for the additional people looking to eat brunch at the beach? In any case it was a really nice setting, the food was great and it was a welcome relief from the overcrowding over at places in Venice & Santa Monica.
This was my first time here, and all I can say is that it was an AMAZING first experience! I will definitely be back. All the staff from the Valet to the Restaurant staff was so nice and friendly. I really enjoyed my visit. It’s very refreshing to go to a nice relaxed atmosphere.
As always, our experience was above the rest. Perfect location from LAX, the food is superb and we always receive the best service ever.
My experience at Beachside Restaurant and Bar was simply AMAZING! Such amazing customer service from start to finish. The staff went above and beyond to ensure me and my guest had a great time! Will definitely be returning in the future.
So relaxing with wonderful music for dinner! Great service, interesting menu and terrific food! Loved the calamari fries ! Wow! The patio looked great. Sorry it was too cold and windy to eat outside. Really enjoyed our dinner here.
Food great. Service friendly and helpful but not always there when you needed them (also the host did not note that I had a reservation even though I told him and thus I got and unnecessary email from OpenTable asking me if I had indeed failed to show).
No espresso/ coffee drinks as they say their machine has been broken for a month. Sad for a brunch place.
It made for a very special birthday for my wife and The singer was terrific and your website is very good helped me pick you since we came from out of town
Excellent location for brunch with a friend on a sunny day. Sitting beachside and enjoying the view and beach-life ambiance was so nice. The food is tasty too!
Decent place. Food is fine but not outstanding. Could have a bit more of a beach / water vibe given the great location. Just a standard hotel bar / restaurant.
Booked a brunch for the family and waited 20 min for our table. Service was standard, we ordered food for our 4 year old 20 mins before we ordered our food and our food arrived before the child and another 20 min wait to add for her..not the best and our bill was charged incorrect too..would we be back...not for a while. Food was nice however..just a rough Sunday for the place.
Service was great, Charity was amazing. The food was wonderful!
Food was pretty good but we came for quiet and it was very noisy. Staff was very pleasant. Burger wasn't fabulous, crab cakes were good, onion soup good but very sweet.
My parents came to town for my Dads 60th birthday and he wanted to have brunch by the beach so we decided to try this place! We were not disappointed! We got the mimosa flight (not sure of the name, but it was a bottle of champagne with 4 different juices) and it was DELICIOUS. All of our meals were amazing! Normally my mom can find something wrong with her meal but she couldn’t find a thing wrong with it 😂 We sat on the patio and they turned on the braziers and it was warm and bright and lovely hearing the birds sing and the water lapping on the shore. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend!!!
We visited Beachside for breakfast and were disappointed. For the price point and area, we expected more. The meals did not look like the pictures online. The food was equivalent to IHOP or Denny's.
Had to sit inside because of the weather for the first time. The room was specious and fairly quiet. The food was, as always, very good.
I’m a regular at this spot. Food is always good. One of the best places to sit outside and enjoy the view of the Marina. Only complaint was this time it took a while to get the food and then when it finally came, it was cold. Cold eggs - not good.
Loved it! So glad I chose this place. Overlooks mother’s beach, ambience great, weather great, food fantastic, prices reasonable, service fantastic. Not crowded nor noisy. What is there not to like? I’m going to make this my regular from now on.
Our favorite restaurant in LA. Amazing to be right on the beach for sunset. The hummus was great as was the Wagu beef. Highly recommend!
This place has really turned around. The happy hour is amazing. Grilled cheese w jam and arugula is nothing like you've tasted before. Not your average grilled cheese but so so yummy. The spinach dip and brussel sprouts are also winners and considering 4 return guests got the fish tacos, they get a five star too!
Always Excellent Always a great experience - good people, good food great view
Beautiful back patio with a romantic ambiance. The food is great, the perfect happy hour spot.
always enjoy eating there on the harbor. nice to be outdoors service staff are friendly & top notch.
Espresso machine was broken and very limited brunch menu. Not great just okay.
The Mimosas are amazing. They come with four different juices.
The beachside scramble was delicious. We sat on the patio amazing view.
It was a little cold so they had a heater on.
Good place to have brunch in Marina del Rey. Only thing to make it better would be if the mimosas were bottomless.
Good food, Good drinks and amazing view.
We had a great New Year's Eve at Beachside Restaurant and Bar!
The food is good and they give you plenty of food to fill you up.
We ate lunch outside and it was lovely. The view of the water and the palm trees made us feel like we were elsewhere. I will definitely come back again.
We eat here often as its in the neighborhood. Love the food, but this time
the service was horrific-asked three times for iced tea refill, and the food took
way too long to arrive
The patio area is fine and overlooks the beach which is fun. We went on a day where you needed to be inside and found it austere and too basic for a business lunch. Food was tasty but i think we would not return
Good food. Food service. Good views. Recommended to anyone
There was a mix up at the restaurant. We booked a Thanksgiving meal through Open Table to start at 2PM. Lo and behold, no turkey or anything else thanksgiving related was being served until 4pm. This was not noted on the website, it wasn't noted when I booked through open table that they weren't serving until 4PM. So it was a pretty bad experience. It's a special day of the year, and Beachside could have made sure that everything was in order. They should have at least put on their menu that thanksgiving dinner is at 4PM. So it was pretty horrendous.
Delicious food with a nice view and good service. We arrived at LAX early a.m. and stopped for breakfast on our way to Venice.
This is one of the more difficult reviews I have written because I loved the location. My husband and I were provided a table in ideal location. We had a view of the beach yet we were under a palm tree so we weren't exposed to direct sunlight. Absolutely perfect! I ordered the crab benedict and he ordered the breakfast scramble. The food did take a while to arrive but we didn't focus on it because of the beautiful view. My crab benedict was excellent unfortunately my husband's food was cold. Thinking he was exaggerating I lean over to take a small bite it wasn't even room temperature it was cold! As if someone had placed it in the refrigerator cold. We contacted the waitress who promptly took it away saying they would make a new order. Roughly 10 minutes later they came back with the same dish and you could clearly tell the food had just been reheated as the potatoes were shriveled up. The manager came over and offered to have them remake his food but by then he was too upset to eat. I left the restaurant feeling guilty because I enjoyed my meal but my husband was hungry and irritated setting the tone for what should have been an enjoyable day off. Oh I almost forgot when we went to get our car the valet tried to charge us for 3 hours as the original valet that parked our car gave us a ticket belonging to someone else. Then when it was discovered what had happened the valet pointed to our car and said its over there.
Love the remodel...........Food was great! I had a fabulous burger - but others said the Fish and Chips were great as well as the steak and eggs, and the Turkey sandwich.
Nice atmosphere inside or outside - very comfortable
Great selection of choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Everyone I take here for breakfast or brunch loves it
Great waiter, great food, beautiful setting
Food, service, value all good. Decor could use an upgrade. Furniture reminded me of a used furniture store from the 50s.
We’ve come here for our past 2 anniversaries and have enjoyed it each time. It’s great to sit by the water without all the craziness of some other touristy areas nearby. The service was great and the food is always delicious!
