We had the pleasure of dining at the side stage experience with Tyler Gugliotta’s menu. Food was absolutely fabulous. So fun being side stage duringPortugal the Man. Will definitely do it again and I hope Tyler is the chef. Can’t wait for Baran’s to reopen with full dining experience!

Fantastic experience for such a great event. A little too pricey but the food was outstanding and the ability to watch the band was terrific.

A few suggestions for next time. Put some monitors up around the table arrangements to allow viewing the show while dining. Add some audio feeds to the platform as well. The audio track for vocals was inaudible. Could not hear a properly mixed audio the way concert goers would hear in from of the speaker arrays.

Although the food was absolutely fantastic and top notch, the whole dinner was WAY overpriced. The Side Stage experience was very cool, except you couldn't see the bands from your table. You could, however, walk at anytime to a great viewing area. Because it was a Daou (a Paso Robles winery) side stage experience dinner, I assumed we would have access to other Daou wine choices but much to my dismay, they were simply the same exact wines you could purchase anywhere at the venue. PLUS, for the price of $550 for two of us, you would think that would include wine or at least one drink. Nope. All alcohol had to be purchased separately. Lastly, the service was horrid. You could tell the servers were inexperienced and it showed. Several people at our group table (you were randomly sat with others, which is always fun) received various courses at different times than their date or friends. That happened to me as well, so my girlfriend felt obligated to wait while her food got cold until I finally was served. Overall, the food was 5 stars, service was 1 star, the price/value was 1 star, and the concert dinner side stage experience was 4 stars. For $250 for two, I would do it again. $550 for two, with zero drinks included, absolutely not.

The food was outstanding! Everything was delicious. It was fun being next to the stage and to be able to see the performers up close (when not sitting down eating.) The music was a bit difficult to hear while seated, because the speakers were directed towards the front of the stage, and there weren’t any directed towards the dining sidestage.

The only problem was the slight disorganization of getting into eating area and my husband and I had to stand for a bit over confusion of seating. Supposed to sit at table 7 but no one was sure which table was 7. Then it was full and we had to stand and wait 10 minutes or so for them to figure it out.

The BeachLife festival was in itself amazing. But to dine on world class food while watching Brian Wilson was over the top. Loved it!

Wow!
Attending the Beachlife Festival in Redondo Beach, we we afforded an opportunity to dine “side-stage” while Bob Weir (of the Grateful Dead) performers with his band, The Wolf Brothers.
What an unforgettable experience. We we served an amazing meal prepared by world famous chief Michael Cimarusti while the Wolf Bros played. Sitting literally feet from the the stage we had an unobstructed view of the performance while eating a crazy good dinner.
The only problem was which to enjoy more the dinner or the show...good problem to have.

The food was excellent but service was poor. Seemed totally disorganized, people serving had no idea what they were serving, plates and serving dishes picked up before food was consumed. Ask for water multiple times, never received and same with wine.
The venue was not that large so someone with experience should have been overseeing the inexperienced serving staff.
When you pay that much for food and the experience I would expect more. I hope they can improve this in future events. I also think these great chefs would want a different experience for their food. Could not recommend people to spend this much.
