Catch of the day was over cooked and accompanying sides lukewarm. Daughter’s lobster Mac and cheese was uninspired and not worth the $38 we were charged. Waiter was inattentive. Manager comped my entree but I still left feeling very unsatisfied.

Everything from the service to the food was outstanding! I recommend seating outdoors, even in the cold weather since they have heaters. The view was amazing and set a nice vibe to our dinner. Would definitely return!

Sat at a window side table on the first floor. We had gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean and got to watch the sunset from our table. The food and drinks were incredible from the rolls to the fish entrees. I highly recommend ordering their signature Bloody Mary if you like Bloody Marys. The service was friendly and efficient! Can’t wait to go back next time we’re in the area.

The food was good. I really don’t have anything else to say about it, because I was shocked about how flippant the staff was. From the 3 people standing at the host desk, that couldn’t welcome us or even smile, to our waitress who acted as though we were an inconvenience. The view is beautiful of the bay. We would suggest it or be back if we are ever in the area again. This midwesterner has worked in CA, from North to South. This was my first ever experience with rude staff.

My husband and son and I went for dinner at Parker's Lighthouse in Long Beach California. We made a reservation in advance and were seated right away. Our server was very attentive. The food came out quickly. I wasn't overly impressed with the food. The ambiance was lovely though.

There was no may e option for recommending this place so I just checked yes I would recommend. I made reservations and still had to wait 30 min to get seated. The restaurant local and view are great. Restaurant decor Is nice as well. We ordered the coconut shrimp as an appetizer, the shrimp was obviously not fresh and had a bad fishy taste. We ordered out food about 7pm and didn't get our dinner until an hr later. Our waiter came to our table once the entire hour. We had no refills on our drinks and no explanation as to where our food was. I stopped another waitress and asked for the manager. He came quickly apologized, took the appetizer (which was gross anyway) and our drinks off the bill. Good for the awesome views especially at sunset if you like overlooking water. This place was club level noisey, my family and I had to scream talk at each other the whole night

We will be back. We had salads, they were good. We were hoping for more of a brunch type menu rather than a lunch/dinner menu, but it worked out. Chicken seasoning was perfect. Service was excellent. A little pricey, but hey, I am rich so I don't care.

The food was great, however our waitress got our order mixed up and it happend to be the person we were honoring that evening. We also advised at the time the reservation was made that we were celebrating a birthday. We were told that a desert would be provided to the individual whose birthday we were celebrating and it wasn't.

Had a group of 5 of us from out of town (I’m from here and brought out of towners).

Appetizers:
Calamari- nothing special really. It tasted fine.
Mediterranean salad- great salad, perfect dressing ration

Meal:
Crab stuffed shrimp - really tasty, only complaint was the asparagus that came with it was under cooked.
Lobster- well cooked, but not special
Ahi tuna (California style)- really good
Barramundi (Vera Cruz style)- excellent
Salmon (Vera Cruz style)- excellent

Dessert:
Crem brule - very flavorful
Tollhouse pie- good flavor but a little over cooked

Service:
Christie was our waitress. She was an excellent waitress. She provided suggestions on meals, provide strong opinions for us on meal options when we asked. My only complaint was she had 5 tables including a large group. She didn’t have quite as much time to devout to us to make sure everything was good with our meal (I never even had the opportunity to tell her my asparagus wasn’t cooked properly). Like I said she was great when she had the time.

Overall we enjoyed the experience. I was very glad to take my friends out for the view.

This restaurant is not what it used to be. The chowder was cold and overloaded with potato, the ravioli tasted more like sawdust and was also cold. Ask for a side order of parmasean and taste how poor the quality is. Tastes like wax. Also check your bill carefully as the wine we ordered was $11.00 per glass yet the charged us $12.00. In addition, made reservations a month before flying into LA, received a telephone reminder on the Saturday before and then on the Monday at 11:44 received another call that they were closing the restaurant at 4:oo pm for a private event. My phone was off, so I did not receive this message, but I did call the restaurant at 3:15 (our reservation time) to say that we would be a half hour late due to traffic and they said that's fine and made no mention of the restaurant closing at 4:00 pm until we actually arrived at the restaurant. They then said that there were no tables in the dining room and that we could sit in the bar area and order from the bar menu. Took 10 minutes for the waitress to arrive who then told us that we have 5 minutes to order and will need to be out of the restaurant by 5:00 pm. To top it all off, they notified Open Table that we were a no show. Really disapointed as this was a special occasion that we were taking dear freinds to before flying back home. Ralph

This was a very important business meeting. At first, I was very turned off when I came in early to check in with our reservation. I was about 15 min early, I wanted to make sure the table was ready to go with some appetizer because we were on a time crunch. The hostess told me I couldn’t be sat until half my party was there.... really wish someone would have told me that prior especially because they called me to confirm my reservation and I called them the day of to make sure everything was ready.
Then once my party was there at 530- we still had to wait.... I don’t understand having to wait when I made a reservation ahead of time... and I was there early..... left a bad taste in my mouth.
