Too much butter on Halibut. I should have spoke up beforehand. Service provided by Drew was top shelf, and the place overall is super cool!

The buffet brunch was delicious (especially the apple smoked bacon)!!! The buffet included an assortment of pastries, muffins, croissants, yogurt, oatmeal, sausage, potatoes with peppers & onions and more. We also loved the omelette bar & fresh waffles. All at a very reasonable price! Likely the best deal in Marina Del Rey.... I have enjoyed brunch here several times before, and was rather surprised to see that we were the only diners in the restaurant. Hopefully they were busy earlier... The service was EXCELLENT as well, environment clean & light, comfortable searing with a view of the water.

We have been to this restaurant several times, mostly when we have groupon coupons. It never disappoints. We order fish or vegetarian, and all are cooked perfectly. The happy hour menu is a great buy, although no choices, really, if you want to drink wine. Service is always lovely, not rushed, and the waiters strike just the right note of service and friendliness. They don't hover, but you find your water glass is always filled. Just a lovely spot.

We had a groupon that was due to expire and remembering how nice our meal had been the last time we were there, we returned. Happily there was no dog sitting next to us this time, which was the primary reason we did not go back sooner. Our meal was delicious and reasonably priced. We eat early so the restaurant was fairly empty and the service very good. I will try this place again in the near future. They do have a lovely patio, but not so much for winter. Would recommend this to anyone in the area who wants a good, fair-priced meal from a nice menu.

Great place, I've eaten here several times. I just wish that OpenTable would reward the points they are supposed to award when I make and keep a reservation such as this one.

We thought we would try a new restaurant through Groupon and did not realize that it was connected to the Hilton Hotel in the Marina. Usually I don't like hotel restaurants, but I will say that the meals my husband and I ordered were very good. We were quite happy with our dinner until a couple was seated next to us with a dog ( we were inside and they were at a booth.) The dog was laying on the booth, a small dog, and out of his/her carrying case. We asked the management about their policy about dogs in the restaurant and they claimed that they could not ask if it was a service dog or not. We did and the woman started to yell at us that "of course it was a service dog" and "no I don't have to show you any papers".

I will not go back to restaurants that will not take a stand on having animals that are not identified service in the interior of the eating area. I don't care how good the food is, I cannot tolerate the health issue of knowing that was allowed.

We were staying nearby and decided to try a different place for breakfast. My smoked salmon plate was excellent; my wife's omelet was so-so. The waitress was attentive, which we appreciated.

Mother's Day breakfast. Just awful! Felt like I was at a bad Denny restaurant. Food was bad they got our orders wrong. Didn't even put in the order for one of our guests. It's a hotel restaurant with bland food and no ambience.

We were hoping for a little more upscale food. I had the spinach salad which was good but the feta cheese was little hard squares not really recognizable as feta cheese. My husband and I shared a turkey burger which was mediocre but the fries were good. He had the tomato bisque which was okay. Wine was very good. Probably wouldn't come back for dinner but might give it a try for Sunday brunch.

We had a group of 12 people. Most of us had great food, but the service was pretty terrible. We had to ask to be waited on and get drink orders. At the end of the meal, they handed us the receipt and told us that we needed to mark each item that should be charged to each card. We had to talk with another staff member in order for the waiter to do his job and split our check the way it should have been the first time.

Restaurant is in a hotel. There were no staff around when we arrived at 6 pm, just a bar tender. We had to get the front desk to find someone to seat us. Drinks in bar plus appetizer were fine. It took over an hour for us to get our dinner once ordered. One of us got the wrong meal (salmon instead of chicken), my meal did not come with the cheddar mashed potatoes listed on the menu.

Delicious applewood-smoked bacon!!! A simple sunday brunch, including potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, cereal, pastries, yogurt and more. If you have a craving you can ALSO order an omelette (instead of buffet scrambled eggs) for the same price as your buffet, while still enjoying the rest of the buffet!!! Walking distance from Marina City Club, Plenty of underground free parking too!

Second time we've been there and both food and prices are good. Lighting is quite bright so I wouldn't consider it for a romantic dinner, but there is a patio outside that's pretty nice if the weather cooperates. Service is not the fastest, but our server (same fellow both times) was lovely and accommodating. Easy parking, varied menu, and a good evening.

I tried it with a Groupon and found the food for the most part good. We both ordered fish, the salmon and the blackened mahi. Unfortunately like 90% of all restaurants both fish dishes were a bit over cooked but well seasoned. The room's ambiance would be greatly improved by turning down the glaring lights.

Hangar steak was great. In a hotel so not much ambiance. Waitress and busboy were both friendly and did their jobs well. I live local and am not a tourist but would go back for a nice Sunday dinner again as I did on my visit there.

We sat outside, which, save for the loud trio at the fire pit, was nice and quiet. The waiter was nice, but the service was a bit slow - took forever to get our food and the restaurant wasn't that busy. I got the turkey burger which was yummy and came with a good-sized salad; my boyfriend got the chicken breast, which he said was good, but the serving size was a bit small. If we were to go back, it would probably just be for a drink by the fire pit... Nothing to write home about.

Went here for Mother's Day. They were out of salmon, which is what my wife, a new mother, and my mom wanted. The food was average at best for a special occasion. Server was nice, but needs to learn about all of the dishes and how to recommend dishes
