The place has amazing food, great ambiance, and everyone is very friendly. Best parts of both a club and restaurant world. I would recommend it to anyone as the new place to go....

The food was good and the service was attentive. However we waited 1 hr for our food. It was also extremely loud and hard to have a conversation.

It was really good food wise. Really loud though. Though I liked waitress, Service could’ve been better. One main dish came 10 minutes after all others. I never got a knife. I’m pulling for it though!

Great new place and much needed for HB. Lovely decor and very stylish. The food was absolutely delicious. Small portions even on the Large Plates. Fantastic drinks! I was taken back by the $4 up charge for Tito’s on the already$13 cocktail. This is a perfect spot for more upscale experience from the beach scene.

We had a great anniversary dinner. We had 2 good glasses of wine which is surprising since my wife is pretty picky. Hamachi app was unique and good. Scallops were fantastic, bass was good as well but a tad salty. They helped celebrate with a piece of the very moist decadent chocolate cake, on the house. Owner check led on us and was very friendly.

Great neighborhood, elevated restaurant. Creative cuisine - the carrots are a MUST ORDER. The wine list is equally as impressive as it is fairly priced. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

Recommended!! For a new restaurant they had it together quite nicely. I believe the menu is abbreviated during opening but it is great. Have had two business dinners and one girls night out, each time very good and progressing nicely! Alex is super professional, has fantastic wine recommendations. he and his team are personable and engaging. Team worked well together and the restaurant for the business dinners were steady gradually got busier as the night went on. GNO we arrived at 7:30 - was a busy night!

The food:
Roasted Chicken,tasty! Portion was great. Highlight on menu for me is the dumplings, seriously addictive... ordered every time I am there! Had the Chinese chicken salad, portion seemed small but after the dumplings, I couldn’t finish, there was a great amount of chicken, dressing is full of flavor and the segments of Orange was delightful..will order again. Other things I have tried hamachi crudo.. oh yummy!! Fried avocado- tempting and a nice surprise. Filet, flavorful and seasoned to perfection. Slab of bacon- super tasty, it is bacon so be prepared for the fat, eat accordingly;) and the best dish (other than the dumplings ) is the duck!! Wow - each bite it progressively got better and the first bite was a game changer!

Pros- wine list, diverse menu, fun cocktails, decor is chic and feminine, lends well to Girls Night Out!, searing is awesome, love the graduation of awesome bar seating, high tops, lounge and great tables some with banquette !

Observations- decor, as nice as it is, it is very feminine ( also a pro) the flower wall is great for selfies but a bit over the top, during the week, service was impeccable and timing was spot on, weekend was challenging but still pulled through.

My husband and I had dinner at Decadence for the first time on March 30. We totally enjoyed everything we ordered. The service was attentive and fun. A week later we decided to return because our first experience was so positive. Unfortunately, this dinner was way below par. For an appetizer we ordered the fried avocado and what is described as bacon on the menu. The avocado was great, the bacon is actually pork belly. My husband snd I don’t care for pork belly ( too fatty)We returned the “bacon” and asked the waiter why this item is described as bacon when it is really pork belly. His response was that’s the way owners want it worded on the menu. The chicken salad, which we ordered the week before, this time was salty. Few pieces of chicken(dark meat only) but filled with chinese noodles. Basically I was eating salad mixture with chinese noodles.
. My husbands burger was just okay. We will not return to this restaurant again. Consistency for us is important,

Exactly what Hermosa Beach needs in a town of fun bars, pubs and Italian restaurants: a beautiful, contemporary room with fantastic, Asian inspired meals.... its one of a kind in this town and we’ll be back.

Good ambiance although a bit noisy / Chinese Chicken salad ok / chef wouldn’t serve hamburger without the mushrooms / good fries / good service but they shouldn’t take themselves so seriously

It is worth dining here for a special occasion. The food is excellent. Like every other place in Hermosa, it is very loud. It is nice to see the kitchen space. The food is imaginative using high quality ingredients. Our, server Casey was very knowledgeable and we went with her recommendations.

My husband and I had dinner at Decadence for the first time today. The service was wonderful and the food inventive and delicious. We will certainly return. One suggestion, perhaps additional choices for entrees.

Unfortunately not a great experience here. They've only been open a couple weeks so maybe they need a little time to iron things out. Service was fine, food was very ordinary. Most expensive thing we ordered was the steak, which was totally overcooked. Couple of the appetizers were good, otherwise nothing stood out. For about $50/person without drinks, was expecting quite a bit more.

I really want this restaurant to succeed. It’s decor is beautiful. But it is just too loud. A table of 4 is shouting to be heard. The food is good. Not great but good. Needs more flavor. Will come back. Hoping that they continue to try and make it better and better. They acknowledge the noise is an issue and are working to soften the acoustics. Management was extremely attentive and professional. Not going to write this off yet. Confident they will tweak the issues.

The decor was lovely - beautiful and upscale. Unfortunately, the food was pretty average. I expected a lot more considering the price point. The fried avocado and Hamachi had no flavor and plated poorly. Our server was awesome but the bar was so backed up it took at least 20 minutes for drinks. It’s only been open for a week so hopefully the food quality will approve. It’s definitely a spot to stop by for a drink before heading to dinner somewhere else.
