The best seafood place in Manhattan beach!!!!
The food was delicious, service was perfect, and many covid safe practices in effect. I can't wait to go back.
Food and drink are perfect. Thank you Justin K and the MOD for taking care of us. We will definitely visit you guys again soon.
Easter dinner at FWD!!! What a great treat by their staff. Chef Alice is always creating fantastic seafood delights and service by Michelle was totally outstanding. Two of us enjoyed a relaxing outdoor dining experience with my pooxh. Highlights were the Queen Mary Shellfish Platter plus half a dozen Peruvian Scallops with all the various dipping sauces and the grilled Santa Barbara Amaebi spot prawns with roe.......delicious & extravagant!! Fish tacos, Fries, Squash Rolls and Hamachi Sashimi completely filled and satisfied us but we both ended with my favorite dessert, Chef Alice’s Key Lime Pie. A truly wonderful evening by the beach and much thanks to FWD for being there!!
Amazing service especially from MJ - thank you for the perfect Easter lunch! I could survive off the FWD menu! Thank you 🙏
Had lunch here with my husband and we both loved it. Ordered the clam chowder and the squash rolls to start. Both were delish. The chowder is a full entree size, so keep that in mind when ordering it. Half portion is also available, even though it’s not noted on the menu. My husband had the grilled rock fish tacos as his entree and I had the crab cake and the market salad as mine. All were great! Our server, Sal, brought us the key lime pie (on the house because it was our first time there!) and it was the perfect sweet ending to our delicious lunch. Thank you, Sal! 😉. I very much recommend this restaurant for its great food and service.
Perfect lunch. Kishikari rice and oysters were ridiculous. Patio was great, felt safe.
Always a great experience!
Our favorite restaurant in the South Bay always look forward to returning. Great raw seafood choices, entrees are delicious and well designed, love the key lime pie, excellent cocktails and wine choices. Staff does a great job in making you feel welcome. Reserve in advance.
Best raw bar in LA
Love this place!
Very comfortable and pleasing outdoor setting
The only restaurant I will drive to the Southbay for from the Westside. Frankly, it’s the best restaurant in LA County for seafood lovers. WaterGrill used to have this spot a long time ago but while WaterGrill’s raw bar is still fresh and delicious, when it comes to the rest of the menu, Fishing with Dynamite has a much more innovative modern take on seafood and tastes much better. Highly recommend: raw bar items, tostada (best thin crispy shell I’ve ever tasted on a tostada), rice risotto dish, squash roll, key lime pie.
My husband and I dined here for our anniversary and we could not have had a more enjoyable experience. The waitstaff was so sweet and greeted us with delicious complimentary champagne. The food was absolutely exquisite with complex flavor compositions. My husband was so mindblown by the ceviche tostadas that he ordered a second and my Koshihikari Rice was out of this world good. The cocktails were also incredible and thoughtfully made. Highly recommend the Bangkok Dangerous. It's so refreshing!! To finish off the night, we had the key lime pie which I'm still salivating over 3 days later. We've definitely found our new favorite spot in town to treat ourselves and can't wait to repeat again soon!
Amazing food. The new trout dish was on point! Also love the new outdoor tent set up. Can’t wait to come back.
What an amazing experience. The food was amazing and so fresh. The staff could not have been nicer. Can’t wait to go back!
Its a perfect date night, and great for sharing plates.
Outstanding as always! We ate outside which is why the low noise was chosen. The food is so fresh and flavors right on. We had the new fish sandwich and the fish was so good it was delish on its own. So tender and flavorful, with the perfect amount of delicate crispy. We also shared the blue crab roll. It was so fresh and sweet that it melts in your mouth with every bite. The bread on both items was also perfect. The service was also perfect as always. So welcoming as soon as you arrive. Attentive and friendly throughout the meal and, unlike so many restaurants, you are not left hanging after the meal. We settled the check as quickly as we were seated without feeling rushed. #1 in MB & LA for that matter, on our list!
Perfect place to dine outdoors and celebrate my birthday in their fresh, clean, cool-vibes patio. Service, food, and atmosphere were terrific. Run, don’t walk to Fishing With Dynamite!
Great lunch. Service was excellent. Food was wonderful. Really enjoyable, long and lazy lunch.
We are outside in the makeshift eating area. It was well spaced and relatively warm. Food was fresh and delicious.
The oysters were spectacular. Our server was funny but professional. We also had a combination of other fresh seafood and it was all excellent. One of my favorite restaurants in Manhattan Beach.
It’s always been a great experience here. Food is always great and fresh. I actually missed this place when they have to close for a bit due to COVID and when they were doing outdoor dining it was just so hard to get a reservation that I gave up for a bit. But so happy they are doing indoor dining again and can support more guests.
Outdoor dining is well done. Service was great. The food is always phenomenal.
Food and service is outstanding! really like the outdoor seating and set up.
Food was cold. Took too long. Very disappointing
Love love love this place!
Excellent service, good was super tasty.
Amazing!!!! Best seafood in LA
Food was delicious and service above par!
We had one of everything and nothing disappointed. Fish awesome. Oysters on the half shell the best and the key lime pie was to die for.
food was fantastic as always! get outdoor seating. excellent staff. so fun!
Fishing with Dynamite never disappoints! The cocktail shrimp are a must get. They have the perfect amount of dill
Great seafood. Unique dishes. A little pricey......but worth every penny!
FWD is consistently outstanding and always surprises us with delicious seasonal items on their menu. This time it was grilled prawns which were simple and perfect. The oysters and Peruvian scallops are always top-notch and seem to be plucked straight from the ocean with their freshness. Service is still impeccable and the staff are always so friendly and on-point. It's our favorite neighborhood restaurant that we love to pop in for every occasion - a casual drink and oysters or a nice celebratory dinner.
Due to COVID sat outside but the area was laid out nicely. Service was good and the food was outstanding. The waiter had some good recommendations from the raw bar. We had the Little Hoodlums and the Peruvian scallops. Recommend this place if you like quality seafood.
My first in-person restaurant meal in a year!
Thank you for a comfortable, safe space, delicious food, and COVID-safe service.
Great seafood gem
little place that packs a punch
