Not enough heat or heater. The terrace on the street lack of character. They should provide a heater per table as every other restaurant around. We couldn’t stay to try the dessert. We won’t be dining there until summer.
Food was amazing.
Take out should be best option.
The service is always so great here. The oysters were delicious and fresh. We had a great time!
It was SO freezing and windy. Everything was flying off table. No heater was next to table. Food was cold and we just couldn’t wait to just finish food and leave.
I understand Bc of Covid- outdoor dining is the only choice but I was so unhappy and annoyed because it was my friends first time trying Fishing with Dynamite
More capacity with outdoor seating available. We were served promptly & courteously. Food was delicious.
Too cold and not enough heat lamps.
Love coming to FWD for the “MotherShucker” and the Peruvian Scallops!
Service is stellar and the new outdoor seating has been expanded for safety.
Love the Key Lime Pies too!
Can’t say enough good things about the staff, food and more. Perfection. Their cleaning protocols are top notch and it makes for a wonderful afternoon in Manhattan beach. So grab a bite and see the great shops too.
Good but slow
Wonderful service and food! Can’t be in LA and not make a stop at FWD!
Great food and services. Really enjoyed the outdoor seating!
Not the greatest
I thought the pre-fix options average. The restaurant has much better food to offer on a regular basis. Didn’t feel like the price matched the quality of the dishes and we are regulars.
Great place always -
The oysters were good, but everything else was average. For the prices, it's not worth it. The crab cake had too much filling and the fries were underwhelming. For the fish tacos, my husband said he actually likes Ensenada's better lol. The clam chowder was good, but not served with bread or crackers. The service was average. Always had to flag our server down if we wanted something.
For outdoor dining during Covid, FWD in Manhattan Beach provides an amazing food experience with an amazing staff. We enjoyed their raw bar and drinks from a social distanced table placed on the blvd. The hostess, server and support staff made our early Valentine's lunch very special. Don't forget to order the Key Lime Pie at the end :)
Everything was good but the host was kind of a jerk.
Delicious dinner. Great outdoor environment. Excellent service. Will absolutely return.
Beautiful night, great food. We had a nice time. Oysters are delicious. The clam chowder came out hot and was very creamy and yummy. The drinks are not that good tho. They taste pre made and flat.
Excellent quality seafood and service as always!
Great dining experience every time! 😀
So great that outdoor dining is back in Manhattan Beach! FWD's servers and kitchen ninjas continue to bring it on!!! Fish tacos on a breezy afternoon! YES!
Great place..... great food..... healthy twists.... service great.... outdoor seating done well... unfortunately our table was near side walk and lop sided.....and there was some construction work behind which was the only issues... minor... and probably resolved on my next visit.
Fist day back after the second round of COVID closings and it was Great to be back. Food was amazing as always. Space heaters to keep you warm during the winter nights.
Food was good. Service just ok. Bill for 2 with bottle of champagne. Felt rushed was main complaint. Asked us to leave after an hour and 15. Not a fast food joint.
Fish was fantastic! And service was attentive and happy. We felt very "Covid-safe" at a lovely end table with a heater outside. Just be prepared for a pricy experience.
Fantastic meal in relaxing environment- service was fantastic. Just the right pace and servers were all friendly and helpful. Definitely will be back .
Food, amazing. Staff, incredibly friendly. Outdoor seating, on the sidewalk but actually better than indoors.
Love this place so much. Favorite restaurant on the west side. A must go to!
Nice date and of course, food outside on the street! We still went all out and service was absolutely amazing. Maddie (sp?) was out server and represented the establishment so well...what was suppose to be drinks and appetizers turned into and awesome meal!
Good spot for dates and weekend lunches. Service is excellent.
Had such a great lunch! The oysters, the ceviche, the fish sandwich, the tacos! So good!
Great oysters! And the halibut dish is wonderful!
Outside seating was done very well. Plexiglass barriers between each table, excellent clam chowder soup, too many items made with mayonnaise and not butter and service was slow
The coriander tuna was very chewy and tough. Octopus was a little charred and the rock shrimp tacos lacked flavor. The hamachi was good
I chose this restaurant as a surprise for my husband's birthday because he loves oysters and seafood.
This is the best seafood restaurant that we've experienced in Los Angeles. Our waiter spoiled us with great service and was very knowledgeable about oyster varieties and quality.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves top quality seafood.
Delicious seafood entrees and a nice wine menu. Too many good things to choose from. Friendly staff, great location, COVID compliant, and a great location.
Outside and the food were disappointing, not what I expected. I was looking forward to trying FWD, but other than the soup, highly ordinary.
Repeat east coast customers here. Food is always fresh and delish. Customer service staff is consistently excellent. Very windy Sunday afternoon but it didn't take anything away from the afternoon MBCH FWD seafood lunch!
Safe and fresh al fresco dining in MBCH. See you again for sure...
FWD seems to have more room outside than they did inside. The menu is a little bit limited, but it still has the Peruvian scallops and the grilled octopus- and of course the fries and lobster roll! It was cool and windy on Saturday, but we bundled up - the dividers between tables are great. The service was excellent, and the waiter knew the South African white I picked off the menu. That was my second trip in a week - always one of my favorites in the LA area!
