Celebrated my dad’s birthday here with great food, the beautiful views of Long Beach and The Queen Mary. We were highly pleased with the service and food. It took a while for our food to be served, but it was definitely worth the wait. We enjoyed the delicious lobster, salmon, steaks and other regional delicacies. Definitely coming back!

Not a good place for good food. The view is wonderful though. However, I go to a restaurant for food as well. Service is not good either. Confused with an attitude. And the restaurant was not even half full. We went for late lunch about 2pm. By the way, if you ever decide to chance this place, the parking lot is a zoo. Just go strait to Parker's valet. 10 bucks will save you a lot of headache. Me, I am not going back there. Paid $180.00 plus tip for food and drinks we did no enjoy.

Great lunch. Beautiful view. I'd love to go back! I met a friend for lunch and got there early so I walked around the little shops in the area. When I went to the restaurant 15 minutes early, they seated me right away and brought bread. Once my friend arrived the service was amazing. We had a leisurely lunch--I had salmon that was prepared perfectly.

It was our anniversary and we had a great view of the Queen Mary. Service, food, and price were great. Just a little problem with the noise. Too many party tables, and one was extremely loud, screaming all the time. Possibly someone could have told that group to keep it down and respect others who are dining there. Otherwise it was exceptional.

we dine here about four times a year. We come for the Chilian Sea Bass. The food was excellent. The service was terrible. We were seated promptly. No one came to our table for drink orders for at least 15 minutes. Our drinks came about 5 minutes before the bread and our meals were about two minutes later. No one checked on us for drink refills, or to ask how the meal was. I don't think we will be back.

Being a regular, I assume the service would be superb, but TWO hostesses who where to seat us where not only rude, but ignorant. Given it might have been busier night, i would’ve understood, but the afternoon/night has just started at 5pm. My partner & I were treated quite terribly. The food was good, and I will say the Maui Maui is a tad dry for my liking, but it’s superb! Our server tried his best to sort our hesitation to really fund the restaurant, so I do thank him and have to appreciate Patrick.

You will get unequaled ocean/harbor views at this restaurant, along with excellent seafood. The dishes they serve there are pretty much the same ones they had 20 years ago: fresh seafood that is very flavorfully prepared, much of it on the mesquite grill, oysters, steamed mussels, garlic cheesebread and more. This is a great place to bring out of town guests for an incredible view, and Shoreline Village, where it is located is fun and picturesque. We experienced friendly, attentive service. Note, the free birthday dessert they bring you is not too great, its a dry-ish chocolate cake type dessert. This should be replaced for sure.

We had a lovely family dinner outside overlooking the water and the Queen Mary at sunset. All of our food was delicious! Our waitress gave great recommendations on food and beverages. It was very comfortable with umbrellas and transitioning to heaters in the evening. A wonderful experience. Excellent food!

The menu is fairly overpriced for the quality of the dishes we ordered. I was very disappointed to see farm-raised fish on the menu. My meal had obviously been sitting in the kitchen for a while prior to being served. Our server was arrogant and rude with little no interpersonal skills and appeared to dislike his job as a server and was verbally rude to people who did not understand that in order to enjoy their ocean view they had to pay for overpriced meals. That their highly promoted "happy" hour was only for those in the bar.

It was my birthday and we sat outside on a heated patio, overlooking the ocean. The server, Chris, was phenomenal; very knowledgeable about the menu, and had excellent reccomendations. On Chris recommendation we tried the poke nachos, which the ahi tuna literally melted in my mouth. Seriously the best ahi poke I have ever ever had. I then shared a bowl of clam chowder with everyone which was delicious, a ton of clams in the chowder which was awesome, not just potato. I ordered the jumbo scallops which we’re seriously incredible melt in your mouth delicious. My mom got the salmon, which was cooked to perfection. My brother got the jambalaya which he greatly enjoyed and his girlfriend got the crab stuffed shrimp, which I tried and was amazing as well. I’m still thinking about those scallops. For dessert I tried the pb&j mixed drink which actually tasted like a liquid sand which. It was pretty good I’d get it again. And we shared the creme brulee for dessert which was great as well. All in all, it was such a wonderful evening. There was like a 90s festival going on across the bay which was making noise, and I could see people thinking it was to loud. Though honestly if you are with good company I doubt you will even register or notice it after a minute. The sunset was beautiful, the table was perfect, Chris, our server was amazing, and our company was wonderful. All in all couldn’t ask for a better birthday dinner, we will be back next year or sooner. Thank you Parker’s for your attention to detail and just making our evening so memorable.

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary here and we were very pleased of their service. We arrived early to our reservation and they quickly found us a table with a view of the water, most pleasant. The food was delicious and well prepared. We had a great experience at this restaurant. We will definitely recommend. Already planning for another visit.

I would still recommend this restaurant because of the Shoreline view. We’ve been going here for over 20 years because our wedding proposal that took place nearby. We loved the attention we would get on our anniversary, but this year was the worst. I still had half a glass of wine but couldn’t enjoy it because the hostess was hovering to see when we were finished to seat the next folks waiting. Also the quality of the food has declined.

I’m so sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your dinner with us. We always want all of our guests to feel welcomed and not rushed. Our hostess does do dining room checks to see which tables are open so that we can comfortably accommodate all of our reservations and patrons. I apologize that it appeared as if she were rushing you. Per OpenTable’s policy, I will directly message you my email address. Can you please reach out to me when you have a moment? Thank you!
