My family and I recently dined at Beachside restauarant. The food was poor and tasteless. We had ordered different meals and all of us were greatly disappointed. The ambience of overlooking the Marina was very nice howeverthe food was a let down.

Receptionist wasn’t very friendly. Seemed like she didn’t want to be there.

Food was only so so. Hamburger not cooked enough.

Our waiter was very nice.

Great food, great service, great location! We lucked out on this one since we were only in the area for a day. I took a chance and it worked out great. Looking forward to our next visit.

We made reservations at 9:30pm. We get there on time, and soon as we are seated, we are told that have to order in the next 15 minutes because the restaurant was closing soon.

When the waitress gets to our table, she said “orders all your drinks and food because this is last call.” So we felt rushed even though we had just gotten there. Definitely a bad first impression. Food was a little overpriced in the sense that we did not get our money’s worth. We ordered the Mar Y Tierra (shareable plate), and it came with a small piece of steak, about 3 pieces of shrimp, and the rest just scallops.

It was my girlfriend’s birthday dinner, and our experience was a little subpar.

Super pleasantly surprised to find such an excellent meal at a reasonable price at an out of the way quaint hotel. Our appetizers and entrees (seared tuna, fettucine with shrimp, and butternut squash ravioli) were all as good as or better than what you'd find at a trendy Hollywood or WeHo "name" restaurant. The food came out quickly and was appropriately/moderately priced, and our server was friendly and checked in regularly. Serving portions were on the smaller/moderate size, but we did not leave hungry. This place is a diamond in the rough, for sure.

Breakfast was expensive and not worth it. I had the crab Benedict which was mediocre at best. My wife enjoyed the pumpkin pancakes. We ate inside due to the cold weather outside, but the inside was as cold as the outside as they had all their doors open. Service was slow and even with the inflation going on, the prices here are outrageous.

Such a pretty outdoor dining experience right in mothers beach, overlooking the sand, water and beach goers. Our brunch meal was delicious- egg scramble and beef for the hubs. Great service, beautiful ambiance, a must for weekend brunch!

This is my secret place to go to when I want to feel like I'm on vacation in my own town. It's beautiful, right on the beach. There are boats in the harbor and it's quiet and perfect. It's hardly ever crowded and the food is good.
Sounds like a perfect Wednesday or any day.
Only tip... ask for them to go light on the dressing on the salad.

They ran out of coffee filters so the 2nd cup of coffee had to wait while chef went to store?!

We have not been to Beachside since the Pandemic. Wow--has it changed. The only thing remaining is the lovely patio overlooking Mother's Beach.
The food: two of us ordered the chicken with plantains. The plantains were fine--the chicken was dry, even though smothered with tomato sauce. The portion was huge and unappealing . One of us ordered the pasta and scampi. The pasta was overcooked, the scampi was extremely small and had no flavor. The last of our party ordered the clam chowder. The portion was so small that he had trouble fitting his spoon into the cup that contained the chowder. The caesar salad was fine.
I long for the pre pandemic food. The menu should offer items that can be delivered in an attractive and appetizing dish. We hope for a change

Ambience was cool because of the marina in the background, service was pretty good. The food was just okay, downside was the two dogs. One kept whining (loudly) and the kept growling at people passing by.

It was our day off, so I grabbed the bestie for lunch and what a beautiful day, the weather was amazing. We also took advantage of the last day of Dine LA and was so ready for the fish and chips but it was sold out so instead, we had cheeseburgers and skinny fries.

Very tasty considering it was not my first choice but the entire deal was so worth it.

Beach Vibe and the Water view was fabulous, the service was awful, the food was awful! I had to apologize to the three people I invited to join me. I told them that they would love the outdoor spot and that the food used to be delicious...that is no more.

I was told the chef was very good. The food was excellent, sincerely, excellent. I am a foodie, and wine connesseur; I usually choose to eat at home, as I know the food will be wonderful.

This food was a step above, and I can once again say I am a fan of fine dining, at least here at the Beachside Restaurant.

I feel like quoting Arnold in the "Terminator", "I'll be back!"

Making reservations was simple through OpenTable. We got there and were seated promptly at a table with a great view of the scenery and the bar area. I want to really call out the stupendous service provided by our server Ron; the first time he came up to the table to introduce himself it was obvious that he had a great sense of humor and was so personable. He took great care of us, anticipated our needs and when to show up at the table without seeming overbearing. We happily gave him a 25% tip! Food was delicious from the start. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. The ambience was just right, we had a great view of the scenery and the bar scene (which can be very entertaining). We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely restaurant. We will definitely be returning (hopefully we can get Ron as our server again!).

Ended up at Beachside begrudgingly when we couldn’t get into any other restaurant because of wait times. Their menu is so limited for dinner and expensive. The quality of the food was good this time at least. Service was also good this time. I just can’t understand why they ruined such a good thing and changed their menu from a couple of years back. I live in this area and the word is out that Beachside Cafe Is not what it used to be. It’s a shame because it’s such a beautiful setting.

My wife had the kale and beet salad and said it was delicious. I had the shrimp tacos which were good but a little short on shrimp and long on the other ingredients....lettuce and other vegetables. The sauce was better than at other places; it was not smoking hot to the taste.

Food was tasty, beautiful setting right on the beach, waiter service was very good. Even though we had a reservation and they have what seems in writing a strict policy about arriving on time with your whole party, we still had to wait 25 minutes to be seated. The communication of this message was with an attitude of it is what it is, take it or leave it. This doesn’t seem like good customer service.
