I went for dine LA and the value was good. I ordered the chicken and it was not good. At all. But the bruschetta and the nutela bread pudding were delish.

First time there, but it won't be our last. We went for an anniversary dinner. The food is superb and the service was great. We were seated on the open/inside and felt super comfortable. Highly recommend- try the crab pasta and don't forget the olive oil cake.

It has become our new favorite restaurant. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts is delicious. The crab cakes are some of the best I have had and the Charcoal Margarita is amazing. Not sweet at all, but super smooth. I don’t really think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. And even though we are usually extremely full we can’t resist ordering dessert. The Nutella bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream is one of my favorite desserts ever. During COVID times it seems like most restaurants have lost their mojo, but Costa has remained steady, therefore its one of the only places I will still eat out at during these times. What I like about this restaurant is its not over the top or pretentious. Just great food and drinks! And the service has always been great!

The waiter over-sold how “good” everything was on the menu. They also added some fee for the kitchen staff and automatically put it on the check without giving you the option. My service wasn’t good, wasn’t horrible either, but this was an instance I didn’t feel they deserved it.

Had a great birthday dinner. The two Bens were extremely attentive without being overbearing. Ben was gentle with our 20 year old California Cabernet when the cork broke. Food was awesome service was outstanding

I’m not from the area and was looking for a place to eat in Manhattan Beach. Costa is fantastic. Their outdoor seating area provides not only the opportunity to feel apart of downtown, but also is private enough to ensure a quiet and pleasant dinning experience. The service was top notch. Super friendly/personable, efficient, but not constantly interrupting the meal. The food was outstanding. For appetizers, we had the tuna bruschetta, and the burrata dish. Highly recommend both. We then had the ribeye special. The meat was cooked perfectly, and, when paired with the polenta, was exceptional. In sum, the experience was memorable and we will be back.

Not the full menu due to changes with Covid, but overall a nice meal and experience sitting outside in the patio created in the parking spot area.
