The manager with the knowledge of the wine was fantastic. She saved the night as we were not notified when we made the reservation that it was a fixed menu. The food was good but tasting portions. The gentleman sitting next to us received two portions of steak and my husband only one which was interesting. We will definitely go back as we enjoy their regular menu. More

The service was impeccable, we did not wait long between courses, the ambiance attractive with a beach-surf motif. We will go back soon! More

First visit to Little Sister. Had heard great things and the food certainly didn't disappoint. A couple of things spoiled what would have been an awesome evening. Firstly the noise was overwhelming. Its a restaurant not a nightclub. I get you want a buzzy ambiance but looking around at the diners and everyone was shouting to be heard over the other people shouting. Secondly, we have a pescatarian with us. There were many appetizing looking fish dishes on the menu but they all seemed to include pork or chicken as part of the dish. Why no fish only dishes? Anyway, as mentioned previously food was excellent. Can strongly recommend the shakey shakey beef and lamb satay. Take earplugs. More

Contemporary American | Manhattan Beach / Hermosa Beach, Beach Cities

I made a reservation for a good friend & I on the early side of a Friday evening just in case it would be too crowded to get a table. To my surprise it wasn’t even necessary...we had the place to ourselves when we arrived, so I never checked in with our reservation. Overall, we had an amazing experience! From start to finish our server was extremely attentive, even as the evening progressed & all the tables were full. Not really hungry enough for a full meal, we ordered drinks & appetizers. The food itself was flavorful & delicious...the drinks tasty & refreshing! We were presented with a piece of warm, yummy chocolate cake, topped with ice cream, by the owner himself, Jon Mesko. Who by the way was polite, attentive & engaging throughout the evening. Props to you Jon, thank you for making it such a pleasant experience for us! I think what I love most about it is that it’s a cute, quaint, quiet place away from the hustle & bustle of the promenade, with a hometown, local feel. That’s hard to find with all the new places coming & going in the Southbay. I definitely plan on making it one of my go to’s from now on, and I’ll be recommending it to everyone I know! More

Using the freshest ingredients and boldest flavors, our menu offers a range of quintessential Mexican food, along with culinary innovations we know guests will love.
