Californian | Torrance / Carson, Beach Cities

From the moment you walk in the building you knew this place was going to be special. It started with the receptionist to the building, she was very pleasant and helpful. My reservations was 11:15 am. I had a window seat just overlooking the track. My waiter Ben, was probably the best waiter I've ever had. In fact, from the host/hostess all the way to guys who brought the food/dessert out to my table, all these guys were on top of their game. The service I got here was probably the best...attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, classy, etc. First they bring out a steam towel to your table. Next, they brought out Pretzel bun with Porsche shape butter with sea saIt on the side. First I ordered Evian water. I had the Mule drink(2)...excellent. For lunch I had the flat iron steak...delicious. And for dessert I had the Almond cake...perfect. The portions are just right. When the I bill came, it was actually less than what I had expected. Probably because the food, the service and the atmosphere of the place just makes it feel like it's worth more expensive. The location of this place is inside the Porsche Experience Center on the 2nd floor. When you walk in the building you have to check in with the receptionist. The lobby has several Porsche on display. They also have a nice Porsche boutique on location. I will definitely be returning every chance I get. More

Steakhouse | Manhattan Beach / Hermosa Beach, Beach Cities

Always an enjoyable dining experience. Enthusiastic and informed servers and each bit is more delicious than the one before. I tried the seabass which was delightful and my friend had the steak sampler, which let him try the best cuts of their steak selection without being overkill. Lovely evening and a full belly. More

Discover Beach Cities

The L.A. beach cities offer a variety of food options that appeal to diners who place a priority on fresh and local cuisine. Chefs prepare food with fish that has been caught within hours from the Pacific Ocean. Global seafood fans can order innovative sushi rolls and ultra-fresh sashimi, and families can try grilled fish served with a salad. Other food options are also available in different neighborhoods, so kids can get a traditional sandwich and healthy eaters can enjoy a properly seasoned turkey burger. Hearty meals can be ordered as well during lunch or dinner. Comfort food fans can try the meatloaf prepared with bold, spicy seasonings and covered with a fiery sauce. The dessert options pair nicely with Beach Cities meals because they're made with fresh ingredients like berries and mint.
