Love and Salt
Love and Salt is a philosophy: that food needs only two ingredients to be great. It’s a sensibility that informs the feeling in the restaurant and the dishes on the menu — Italian-inspired with Southern California soul. An approachable wine list and classic cocktail program similarly reflect the vibrant SoCal setting of the restaurant, located just steps from the Manhattan Beach pier.

Cute ambience, great service, just wish the portions were slightly larger. Good cocktails too
The food was absolutely delicious. The cocktails were creative and also very tasty. The service was friendly and casual. I would definitely recommend and will be back.
Decided to stop by for a quick snack during dinner. The appetizers I ordered were great. Service was not. I sat there, having already scanned the menu and prepared to order, over 25 minutes before I was greeted. I was offered water and there was about another 15 minutes until my waitress returned. I almost left. ☹️ Other than that, drinks were great and I enjoyed the food.
Server was especially attentive without being intrusive.
Sam our server really knew the menu, she was superb.
Great food, great cocktails. Will be back.
Super awesome experience. The food was fantastic and the weather was perfect
This place was way over hyped. Our food arrived cold, my pasta was wayyyyy too al dente, and in general it just wasn’t very good.
Love this place. You don't need to know anything else but they require me to use a minimum number of characters.
My favorite restaurant in the South Bay!
Excellent food and service! Cold outside
Have been here countless times and it’s always consistently delicious. The service , food and cocktails are outstanding. It’s perfect for a date night, girls night or special occasion. It’s a gem that we return to over snd over and always enjoy!
Amazing food and excellent service. Great outdoor dining experience.

We chose Love and Salt for one of our first restaurant outings after getting fully vaccinated and wanting a special place for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent and the service was both professional and friendly. It's not a budget place but it was worth the expense. We shared an octopus salad and a pizza and enjoyed two delicious desserts.
Service was the best part of the experience. The food here is good but not great. We had 2 kid's pastas, a meat lovers pizza (we asked for it with very little sauce and extra cheese, but it came out with still a lot of sauce and not much cheese), a cacio e pepe pasta (special order which they happily accommodated), and the prosciutto & asparagus. All of it was fine. Love & Salt goes the way of most upscale restaurants, sadly. Which is to say the food is good but not great and for the price doesn't feel like much of a value.
Best Italian food in downtown MB! I love the Cacio de Pepe so much. As usual, our whole dinner was delicious .
Great food, good drinks and lovely staff. Loves the apps.
Amazing experience from beginning to ending!🙏
Food was excellent! We had branzino and strozzapretti costollete ( short rib ragu).
Service was great!
We’ve been here four times and every single time the food and the service have been great. We sat inside this last time and really enjoyed the experience. Good vibe and ambiance. This is easily one of our fave restaurants in the South Bay.
Overall a nice experience but my husbands steak was tough and chewy and my fish had many bones. Great beer and wine list and the appetizers were great. Very friendly staff
Love and Salt never disappoints. We especially appreciated their adherence to social distance protocol with their outdoor tables. We felt very safe and comfortable. Food was fantastic as always. Fresh ingredients, simply prepared and delicious! Service was excellent...attentive and engaging. Such a treat after being stuck at home for a year!
Great food! Great Drinks! Great Service!
Service was disappointing, they were more focused on “turning tables” than proving great experience. This is A new problem, as we have been going regularly since the opened, likely lack of manager training and experience. Hope they figure it out, or MB will turn to its many options.
I think the food is good, the pizzas looked great, I just think we picked the wrong thing on this evening. Overall it was very good.
Love and Salt never disappoints. Never.
Great food, good service with nice views of the ocean from outdoor seating area.
Had the best night! Our server MJ was amazing!!!!!
Love it here. Always solid
Good food, not cheap but that shows
The whole experience was perfect. It was our first dinner out in a very long time and it didn’t disappoint at all. The cocktails were delicious and the food was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back!
Delicious, inspiring food! Best restaurant for foodies in MB right now. Yum....
Everything was great, the food experience and atmosphere was very good. My only comment was when we finished paying our bill the waitress told us we had to leave because another party was waiting for our table. It was a little rude especially since we were halfway getting up after we signed for the tip.
First of all let me start by saying I normally love this place but my last experience was very poor. One of the things they do that doesn’t make sense and you never see in a restaurant of this quality is bring out the food plate by plate. I actually got my food 5 minutes before the next plate came out for another person in my party. So I had two choices which were to eat by my self or let the food get cold. Then about 5 minutes after the second dish came out the third dish finally arrived so we all basically ate while other people in our party watched. The server was very friendly and the food just ok that night. A very disappointing experience in a normally good restaurant.
