With a name inspired by the strong, raw fiber often used for making rope, Jute references the coastal design of the hotel, specifically the woven chairs throughout the lobby space, while subtly labeling a space that encourages connections and the coming together of friends and family.

Positive elements were very good food and great service. Caesar salad was best ever with fresh anchovies...mussels were very good. Cocktails were also mixed very well.

Negativity was due to overall feel and management. Dining area is really part of the lobby (although there is a nice outdoor area) and was totally empty. We were the only ones there for dinner. Plus valets were pleasant but not well organized and didn’t seem to know about validation policy.

It’s a shame because food and service were great.

So the food was quite good, but everything else was beyond awful. Got there for our 7:30 pm reservation and they acted as though we had no reservation and nothing was set for us; we were seated and then waited almost 10 minutes for the waiter to show up for a drink order; never got a wine list so we ordered based on his recommendations; ordered dinner and then waited over 40 minutes for the food to come and at no time did the waiter come to see if we wanted another glass of wine or to refill water; food was served and he never returned to ask how it was or see if we needed anything else; after dinner he cleared half the table and then left to wait on other tables leaving us only partially cleaned; after complaining to the manager and asking for our check the manager brought it (30% discount for awful service) and then never came back to pick it up! We had to ask another server if she would take it to get it paid. Finally the awful waiter came back but never once apologized for the service. In addition, the restaurant is in the lobby of the hotel and was very noisy, and it was very poorly lit. They have a great chef who can prepare a fantastic meal, but everything else about the place is simply terrible. I guess they have enough business from the hotel that they don't need diners from the South Bay. Never going back.

Read a good review on this place, but it was not very good. Limited menu. Overpriced. Food just ok.

Our server was very good. She stopped by to check on us plenty of times. Seeing as we were dining small plates style, we ordered more at least three times.
It has a great view of the golf course which is a nice treat to see open green space. We sat in the "outside" area which is really inside but with wide open windows. It was quiet enough for everyone to hear, which is often an issue for some of us. The food was all very good, if a bit overpriced. Not unreasonably high though.

There is valet and self parking in the garage with validation. The machine was broken and would't take our ticket, but we just pressed the speaker button and they opened the gate remotely.

My husband and I sat outside on the patio with it's beautiful golf course view to have a quiet dinner together. Disrupted by a large table of rowdy men who were very loud. (They should have been in the "bar" area as they were just drinking, not eating). Service was extremely slow. Food was just ok. A little disappointed.

Horrible! Remodel did little to help surroundings. Service was all time low. Walked out before food arrived after waiting an hour from ordering. Do not go.

The basic bones of the former Marriott are still there without the staircase that leads to the ground level. This restaurant takes the place of the one that was downstairs and it can be loud. The bar is situated in the middle of the entrance and areas for the restaurant surround the bar then line up at the windows looking at residences and the 9 hole golf course. My friend ordered a bottle of wine, the wait staff delivered the wine open with the cork in and sat it in the middle of the table. When we asked why the staff doesn't pour the wine we were told the staff was not educated about this yet. Hmmm.. ok. So then we ordered a few plates to share. We waited quite a while and when the 1st plate arrived with (per the menu.. fresh avocado as one of the main ingrediants).. my friend mentioned her avocados were brown and would not eat them. It went that way all the way through dinner. Jute needs to work out the kinks before we return. We're locals and we were really hoping this would be a new destination for us. Sadly.. not yet. We'll check in later this year to hopefully see they're actually pouring the ordered bottle of wine and serving the fresh food they reference in their menu.

The food, drinks and service were quite good. Overlooking the golf course is nice.
My only negative is that there isn't really a "dining room". You feel as if you are sitting in the middle of the hallway. It was quiet for conversation, as not crowded at all.

We had a great time at Jute. Food and service were wonderful. It’s a new hidden gem in the South Bay!

Things started going downhill immediately at the valet where they wanted to charge us $27 for valet or $23 for self-park. Finally, they agreed to just take care of it. (Turns out that the sign we saw afterward said $10 for valet for dinner. Guess no one outside of hotel guests have been going there!) Food is just ok. The atmosphere with open seating in the lobby is weird and space is not at all beachy or warm and comfortable. The waiter tried hard, but there were a lot of missteps including the fact that his wine list was different than what our table was given so drinks took a long time. Thai grilled chicken dish was flavorful until we noticed the inside of the chicken looked raw. Shrimp dish sounded good but was fishy. Lamb sliders were good and probably the best of what we had. We ended up canceling our dinner entrees, paying for what we ate and going to another restaurant for dinner. Too bad too as we are local and we could use more restaurants in the area. We will not be back.

Great food and service. Jute coastal bar and kitchen is located in the newly redesigned Westdrift hotel previously Marriott Manhattan Beach. We tried an assortment of the new kitchen offerings and some of the craft cocktails. All was delicious. We sat on the balcony overlooking their 9 hole golf course. Beautiful view. I will be back.
