American | Long Beach, Long Beach / Catalina

We had an outstanding evening! Thayvi was our server, and she was AWESOME! Making sure we were taken care of and everything was just so. This is not our first visit to Nick's on 2nd, we really do love them! I ordered the Prime Center Cut Filet and my Hubby got the Sea Bass - both were outstanding. The roasted veggies were great - and the tomato basil bisque we started with was so yummy! I have to tell you quickly, I ordered my steak Medium - and it came out Medium well; I did not complain one bit, it was still delicious. But...Thayvi walked by and noticed that my steak was not done to my liking, and offered to take it in and have them make me a new one - I insisted it wasn't necessary and everything was fine, if it were well done, I would have done that. But Medium well was ok. She went and mentioned something to the manager, who then came out and apologized as well. Their service is outstanding, it was not necessary at all! They gave us our Delicious - you gotta have it - butter cake on the house, even though I told them not necessary. Again, Service is OUTSTANDING. The Meal was great and it was a great experience. We will be back! More

L'Opera
(1897)
$$$$
Italian | Long Beach, Long Beach / Catalina

I am not a regular post person but I am a regular Diner at L’Opera. After reading a very hateful Yelp from an obviously angry and troubled human being, I decided I wanted to share my 30 year dining experiences at L’Opera. I have had the benefit of traveling the world and have eaten at some of the Best Rated Restaurant and I would put L’Opera at the very top. From the moment you walk in the front doors, the ambiance immediately makes you feel like you are in a 5 Star Establishment. With no exceptions I have never had a bad meal here. From the Valet to the greeter, to waiters and waitresses and Bar Tenders, everyone always has a smile on their faces and makes me feel special. Pricey, yes but trust me, worth every penny. You could always hit their happy hour, prices are ridiculously low and you will still get the quality food product. The menu is very Italian, constantly being updated with new and creative dishes depending on the seasons. The wine list is award winning. You have to try this place, it is classy and top notch. You will not be disappointed. More

International | Long Beach, Long Beach / Catalina

The Queen Mary Brunch is an event unto itself. From the moment you walk on the carpet to the moment you leave, the welcome and presentation of a stately historic ship and the incredible food was worth every cent of the entrance fee. Every thing I could imagine at a buffet plus about 50 more items you’d expect to see on a quality ocean cruise. The salmon poached with cucumbers as the scales was not only beautiful but so delicious. Sushi, fresh fruits, tiny desserts, amazing shellfish, carving table of beef and turkey, and a bottomless champagne glass to boot. More

Kory was our server and offered insight that helped us on our choices. Loved the open air dining...noise level was a tad on the loud side because a large party with small children was near. Would definitely recommend. More

A beautiful view back onto the Long Beach skyline. Open air lunch with very friendly staff. My wife and I both had different tacos: fish & steak and they both very good. I would recommend they look at changing the sauce on one of them since they were both the same sauce which makes the tacos taste the same and yet fish vs meat. I will go back and try other items on the menu. More

Okay, so maybe this isn't entirely objective. I've been a volunteer on the Queen Mary for the past 27 years. But she is still anything but 'Plain Jane'. My wife and I had cocktails at the Observation Bar followed by dinner at the Chelsea to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The drinks, food and service were all excellent. And the unique experience of an evening aboard the world's most elegant and storied ocean liner simply cannot be rivaled. The evening view of Queensway Bay, the Shoreline Marina and downtown Long Beach made for an incomparably romantic evening for us. More

The night was actually wonderful. Great music and scenery. Unfortunately we had a waitress who was new and unfamiliar with waiting on large tables. She was very nice but lost and we had to ask her for everything we needed. Especially when ordering our food...we had to call her over to order and continue calling her when we needed things like water. The food was great though. The band went on and they were awesome (Knight Ryder) the DJ was also great in between sets we actually danced on the dancefloor and near our table when it got crowded. Had a wonderful time anyways.

We visited for Mother's Day lunch. The food is very authentic, as if you were having dinner in someone's home. This food is not spicy, nor is it supposed to be, and just flavored very softly with natural ingredients. We enjoyed the chicken stew and especially the grilled steak, like carne asada. Our server was very friendly and super helpful in navigating the menu. The ambiance is very colorful, and it looks like it would be a hopping party place on Friday or Saturday night. Parking is very tight in the neighborhood, and there is no an attached parking lot. I just kept driving around a bit and finally found one a block away. Not too bad. Just drop your companions first if need be, and then go look! The plantain chips are excellent with the warm salsa they serve. More
