We went for date night and enjoyed and appreciated Kenny our server. He had great positive energy and made the evening even nicer.
Not crazy about the remodel inside, but at least the menu is still solid. Sitting outside is wonderful. Great views, casual atmosphere. Friendly service and good food. Prices are fair.
Landing in Marina del Rey from the East Coast later in the evening a couple of Saturdays ago, was happy to find a reservation at walk-able from our hotel - Beachside Restaurant. Unfortunately, LA was in a cold spell or would have really enjoyed sitting outside. The Cedar Planked Salmon was delicious and prepared exactly to order, the Charred Shishito Peppers were wonderful, and the Shitake and Basil Turkey Burger was good and filling. We ordered dessert for a change: The Blueberry Cobbler needed more blueberry and sauce; the cheesecake was adequate - beautifully presented. Our only major complaint here is for some reason the chairs scrape across the floor like the scratching across a chalkboard - loud, cringe making and disturbing!
Great service and great food
We made a last minute reservation for lunch on a beautiful sunny Friday. Lovely to sit overlooking the water. Good menu, with plenty of choice and variety. Between the four of us we had a steak salad (generous portion and nicely cooked steak, with lots of salad), a crab, arugula and pine nut salad (delicious and light), pea soup (not quite as expected, looked more like minestrone soup), sushi and calamari (which was a little chewy). We then shared a delicious desert of blueberries, with a crumble topping and vanilla ice cream. Our server was attentive and friendly. We were served promptly, but not rushed. Would recommend and would return.
Great customer service. Friendly staff. Yummy food
Mixed review. One meal was very good, the other not so much. Service started out good, but then slid and we had to wait for a long time. Cocktails overpriced and undersized.
Lovely setting overlooking the marina. Food was quite good.
Neighborhood gem overlooking Mother's Beach. Good food! Hostess and service was slow, but waitress was friendly.
Loved the restaurant. Easy parking, good service and good value with a nice view.
Thoroughly enjoyable evening and wonderful service
We had a great dinner and then sat outside for the New Year’s Eve fireworks, and toast.
Very peaceful, great views of the water, and great food!
Had a wonderful Sunday brunch at Beachside. The view was wonderful and the service from our waiter Robbie was wonderful. Food was delicious as well. Recommend sitting outside for the full view benefit.
We’ve been before and enjoyed our meals.not so much yesterday
The turkey burger was very dry and the flank steak & eggs weren’t prepared as described
It was not flank steak, wasnt cooked well as ordered & the eggs were slightly burnt
The wait for the food was over 30 minutes and it wasn’t crowded. People who sat Dyer ya got their food long before us
It’s a pretty view of Mother’s Beach
A wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at a harbor side table in evening
Food was good, entree portion very small for the price.
Great service and a nice quiet breakfast overlooking the harbor
We enjoyed our lunch very much. It was a beautiful day. The view and food were very nice. We will be back.
We love this restaurant and the new renovations they have done. Our sever was kind of unresponsive; had to ask
Him a lot of times for things. But the assistant Chad, was fantastic. Very helpful, professional and fantastic service so he made up for the unresponsive waiter (maybe he just had a lot of tables?). Fish tacos and cheeseburger delicious! And the ambiance, waterfront is beautiful. Best in the Marina! We will definitely go again.
This restaurant is located at Jamaica Bay Inn and has just been renovated. The service was not up to what we've previously experienced. One party has a gluten allergy and even after telling the server, they brought the order which contained wheat. Glad we spotted it! Server never came back to check nor apologized for the error. Prices are much higher than previous Happy Hour. They need to pay for the renovation somehow...
If you love sitting outside at the beach this is the place for you. The food, cocktails and whole vibe are great
My friend and I go to the Beachside often for our regular Saturday breakfast. Normally, everything is very good, however this time the service was horrible. We were half way through our breakfast before we got our coffee and had to ask a couple times for a refill. Hopefully, yesterday was a fluke.
Good service, restaurant in good shape after remodeling, happy hour worth a visit.
We each had delicious salads. The salads were presented beautifully and the flavorings were unique and impressive. The outdoor seating is delightful. Service was attentive and unobtrusive.
We sat outside and had a great view of the water. The food was great!
Great food and location with two hour hour validated valet parking! Accepts reservations for any size party.
My husband and I were so happy that the renovation was completed so we could enjoy another dinner at Beachside Restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful after the renovations and the food is still delicious!
Very nice brunch, fresh food, friendly service and decent coffee.
Enjoyable dining on the water, no complaints at all, would definitely return
My wife and I dined at Beachside during a recent stay in Marina del Rey. We were very happy we dined here. Both our entrees, fettuccini with shrimp and lemon chicken were delicious and our server, Rebekah, was helpful with suggestions and attentive throughout the evening. Also, save room for dessert. The chocolate cake is fantastic if you're a chocoholic like us. We'll return when we're in the area.
The food wasn't bad, but the service was beyond slow. At one point it seemed that our server had forgotten us. A very limited menu (both regular dinner and happy hour).
We had not been here for some time due to experiences with slow service. We were here 2 weeks ago and again this Friday and we had an absolutely wonderful dining experience. Service was completely attentive but not overly so. Becka, our server, was helpful and very good. The food was extremely excellent, particularly the Salmon. You can't beat the outside ambiance. We will be back.
Extremely slow service, didn't get greeted for over 10 mins. Food was just ok. Location was great. The current management of this place needs to go. Very poorly run
Good happy hour. Great price on drinks. Some very tasty appetizers-- shisito peppers , fish tacos ; burger was mushy but may have resulted from my. Ompanion insisting on rare plus
Was cold and windy but they quickly provided blankets
The location was great with a nice view. The food was good. The service was just okay. We waited about 10 minutes just for the host/hostess to show up and seat us. Our waiter was friendly, but never checked back with us after we received our food, and I had to flag him down to bring me the check. Perhaps they didn't have enough staff during our visit. Not sure if that is the norm, but the lack of attention from beginning to end certainly did make the experience less enjoyable.
Our anniversary and great spot in the Marina dining outdoor and good food and drink. A GREAT happy hour btw!!!
It was the perfect location to cool off after a very hot day -- outdoor dining by a small beach. We got there at the end of happy hour and our server was great about making sure to get our drinks order in before the deadline and made sure we realized that there was some over lap between the happy hour and regular menu. While this is not a "foodie" location, the food was well prepared and tasted great.
We went for a business working brunch and requested an end table away from the rest. We were not only accommodated, but the service was very respectful to our meeting. The food was great, terrific view and away from the beach enough not to have a ton of noise. Will go back!
The inside seating is non-existent due to remodeling. The outside seating can be cold and wind swept. Diners should bring jackets. Restaurant does have blankets.
