We ordered the chef choice and it was amazing. We've been there about a dozen times and this was our favorite. They were understaffed for what we are used to. So the service wasn't what we normally expect. This place is always our go to for wonderful farm to table food. More

My soup was luke warm and my spaghetti was really clam fettachini. The portion was way to small for the price. My bowel arrived looking quite empty. The ambiance is great since I am a car guy. Watching Porsches slide around the track is awesome and the entire place is super sano. 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.
