In a world where landmarks are few and far between there is Gladstones. Situated where Sunset Boulevard meets the Pacific Coast Highway, it's become a place of Southern California legend. Gladstones offers a menu plucked from the very ocean it overlooks, serving modern renditions of classic dishes. In its typically relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, there's something to satisfy every palate. Whether you're at the raw bar, the lounge, the dining rooms or the grand patio over-looking the surf, it's commonly agreed there's no better place, either up the coast or down, to enjoy fresh seafood, a Mai Tai or a sunset. Gladstones has been named an "Editor's Pick" in Sunset Magazine, one of Gayot.com's "Top 10 Outdoor Dining Restaurants" in L.A. and one of CBS Los Angeles's "Best Seafood" restaurants.

Beautiful view and friendly staff. The Ahi Salad was excellent and so was the vegan pasta. The only disappointment was glutinous New England style clam chowder (but it had lots of clams in it). We certainly recommend.

After years of passing Gladstones on PCH, we finally stopped into this SoCal institution.

The outdoor seating area is really cute, however it was a little chilly outside (even with the heat lamps) so we opted to sit inside. We were seated near a door that servers were using to access the outdoor patio - needless to say, it was chilly inside too.

Our server was friendly, but not entirely attentive. Our meal was okay but far from anything special. Disappointing is that unless you park your car on PCH, the only parking available is valet for $11.00 plus tip.

Glad we gave it a try, but probably won’t be back.

Something needs to be done with the bathrooms. The men’s bathroom was dirty and in need of an update. My wife says the same about the women’s restroom. The table we sat in by the window was dirty and cramped. My wife and I both had to clean our wine glasses before pouring our wine. I sent my silverware back because it had dried food on it.

What happened to the Grand Old Lady at Sunset and PCH?!? Oh! We were, literally, devestated at what has become of Gladstone's. My family has been going to Gladstone's since it opened, though we had not been in about 10 years. We went for my wife's birthday - a special night out without the kids - and we will not be back - we'll go up the coast to Duke's.

We made the reservation and noted that it was for my wife's birthday. For 7:30 - not even sunset. We asked for an ocean seat. When we arrived the three hostesses told us "15-20 minutes." Ai-yi-yi. Over AN HOUR LATER, we were still sitting at the bar. Those three hostesses were absolutely terrible. They had no clue what was going on - zero. There open tables along the water - they had no explanation why nobody was sitting there. When they finally sat us, they put us next to the barback station. It was horrible. And there were, what, 15 people in the restaurant (although there were some outside as well). We were so disgusted, we just just took our seats and dealt with it.

There were two manic kids running around screaming their heads off 5 feet from us - it was like McDonald's - seriously. And then, as if I needed the nail driven any deeper, my dinner was served cold. I. Kid. You. Not.

Had it not been for Angel, our server, and the guys at the bar (super, super, super cool, great guys) I would have said that this was the worst dining experience I have ever had in Los Angeles. It was that bad. Those hostesses should not only be fired, but black-balled from the restaurant industry. They had no clue we were there, no clue that anybody was there. Not one time did any one of them come up to apologize, give an update, nada. And, if there were not three working the hostess stand.... that tells ya all you need to know, because there were three up there all night.

Shame on the management for what it has become.

Gladstones is particularly nice at sunset. Drinking fine cocktails, eating great food, and watching the sun set over the Pacific. Excellent.

I miss the old Gladstones. This has been our family place to gather when everyone comes to town about once a month for a good 25 years. It's been several years since we've been in town and I have to say we were incredibly disappointed. They used to make an amazing She-Crab soup as an alternate to the Clam Chowder and have since discontinued. They used to serve a wonderful tropical iced tea from The Art of Tea and have discontinued this as well in exchange for the same old Lipton iced tea. Prices have gone sky high and portions are way smaller. Along with the inflated parking fee of $11 sad to say but this was the last time we will meet here. Now the search begins for a new place to make our memories. The only positive was celebrating a milestone birthday with my family on the amazing patio. The inside could definitely use a face lift.
