Very quiet under the circumstances, but definitely worth it, always. A very nice sunset, excellent service, food & beverage. Until next time...

Started off fine. Friendly hostess and waitress. But then our fries came out room temp. The waitress quickly replaced them for us and without a fight. But then about 4 chicken nuggets in we discovered one nugget that wasn’t cooked. We alerted waitstaff who quickly took the plate back and replaced it. Okay. Not really a sufficient apology made for either but at least they replaced the food. But then they charged us for it and it took about never for the waitress to then come back and take our credit card. I ended up asking to speak to the manager who apologized and said we shouldn’t have to deal with uncooked chicken especially since it was a kids meal! But I suppose their graciousness had a limit because for all that he only comped the $8 chicken nuggets. Wow. The cooked food we had was good and I honestly thought I would return but when the manager couldn’t even pull a few more strings to make it appear like they really cared by I don’t know, also taking off the charge for the room temp fries, I would’ve felt better about the whole situation.

Beachside Café made our 40th Anniversary extra special! Jonás, the host was so welcoming and gracious when we arrived. Antonio, our waiter, made sure that our food was cooked to our liking. It was an outstanding and flavorful meal! My husband and i both ordered the Barramundi. It was impeccably prepared and presented. We also had edamame as an appetizer. It was very tasty we had enough left over to bring home. The surprise of the evening was a super delicious flourless chocolate cake with fresh cream and berries...on the house! What a lovely gift for our special evening!

Came for dinner on Valentine's Day. The food was delicious and our server JB was great! We ate on the patio overlooking the marina lights. It was beautiful! We love locally and would like to try the brunch.

We sat indoors since it was a little too breezy to sit out on their lovely patio but we could still enjoy the nice view of the beach. The food was excellent as was the service. We don't live in the area but we try to make a point of eating here several times a year for special occasions. Always very enjoyable!

I met some friends from out of town at Beachside Restaurant & Bar for lunch, and i brought my dog Nacho along. The food we ordered was exceptional with huge portions. Two of my friends got burgers and they were almost like meatballs on buns, with a giant serving of parmesan truffle fries where you could really taste the truffle. A third friend got the Thai salad and loved that, and i had the steak salad which was cooked to perfection. The restaurant also made my dog a chicken breast cut up into bite sizes and he was very grateful for that. I'd definitely come here again for a leisurely meal.

Parking is by valet only and costs $5 for three hours.

Loved the location, right by Mother's Beach - very chill vibes on the patio for a midday meal. Had a GREAT server. The food was delicious - the French toast I got was exceptional, and my friend who got the fish tacos said they were the best she'd ever had! Would definitely recommend.

We had French brie omelet and tuna tartar.
Both very good. Dessert was good too.
With restaurant, parking is $5 for 3 hrs. Nice walk on the beach.

Girlfriend and I went there for New Years Eve. Great service (Austin was our server I believe) and food (Kobe Steak and the half chicken).

It’s right off the water, so we got to see the fireworks at the Marina at midnight!

Set right on the beach in the Marina, this is a perfect spot for bringing guests from out of town. We had brunch there. The Brie Omelette was excelent and the French Toast was standard but delicious. We were happy with the service and just adore the location. Parking in the lot next door was easy and only $2.75.

Been here many times. Have NEVER had anything to complain about. The servers are always so great, the manager is friendly and kind, food and drinks are delicious and great portions. We had martinis with blue cheese olives, charcuterie plate, fish and chips, a wedge salad and creme brulee. Everything was on point and yummy. The ambience is great here too. They never make us feel rushed. Really a great place. Thank you.

Great restaurant, great food. My wife has allergies and wish that they would assign a special area for dogs. Never felt clean in your outdoor "Dog friendly" environment. Your floors were "Dog Friendly' filthy.

We decided to have our mommy-daughter date night here during our weekend in town get-a-way. We usually love these!
Honestly, the service was disappointing and a little frustrating initially. When we first arrived for our reservation, we were greeted warmly and seated promptly on the patio as requested. I was told that our server would be the young lady serving the table next to us as we were being seated. We waited for awhile and the server passed by multiple times (making eye contact so I’m sure she saw us), but never stopped to help us. A few more servers came to the cash register near us... still no acknowledgement of our presence. I finally asked a staff member passing by if someone would be serving us. He kindly went to front to inquire. He returned and said someone would be out to help shortly. At first, I was quite upset and started to leave but we were hungry and wanted to eat by the water! Eventually, the server from the bar came to the patio to serve us. He was very empathetic, professional and personable so that saved the experience. I’m not sure where things went wrong, but I hope this doesn’t happen again.
Constructive feedback: Be attentive to ALL guests, communicate and acknowledge your guests presence.
Overall, the food and drinks were delicious.

I went for a sunday brunch with my parents and we sat outside. It was a nice view of the marina on a sunny day. The bloody Mary drink was good and the service was great. Courtney our server was very prompt with taking care of our table.

The food was excellent with larger portions. There was an incessantly barking dog at the table next to us which clearly hurt the ambience rating, but without that dog it would have been a very nice view and a very nice environment. However the service was abysmal and completely inattentive . I would not return to this establishments primarily for that reason.

Great brunch. Food was pretty darned good. Eggs were overcooked on Benedict but that was quickly replaced. Service was certainly friendly but a tad slow. Gorgeous restaurant, incredible view. Would definitely recommend.

Waiters were not attentive. Friend showed up and it took a good 15 min before she was asked what she wanted to drink. Got her order wrong then brought a menu over to tell her she was wrong. Never came by again to check on us. Gardner was weed whacking 10 yards away. Loud, terrible ambiance at that time of day.

This restaurant used to be one of my favorites until this past Saturday. The location can’t be beaten in Marina del Rey, but the food is VERY pricey for a restaurant that allows people to wear short shorts and bathing suits in the restaurant in the evening (that should be poolside). Our waitress “tried” to be patient but actually seemed like she couldn’t be bothered and checked on our group just once (no refill on coffee to be had). When the bill arrived we had to triple check it because it was so expensive. Thinking twice about going back.

Had been here a long time ago. Location on the beach is great. Guess previous time was for lunch and we sat outside and it was warm and very pleasant. We tried to sit outside on this last visit but it was too cold (waiter did bring a big blanket for my friend who had no jacket). Then we moved indoors but the acoustics were so bad we had to yell at one another. So not enjoyable conversation. Food was quite expensive & som elf us enjoyed our meal and some did not. A $5 charge for bread! Waiters were great so this is no reflection on them or their service. Would probably not go back for dinner again.
