True California Coastal Cuisine with Los Angeles nightlife. Start with a craft cocktail and fresh oysters or crab from our raw bar. Then move into one of our coastal inspired main dishes with a glass of wine from our extensive list. Overlooking the marina, with sweeping views from Palos Verdes to Malibu. Cool, hip, comfortable, inviting, we transcend the traditional beach feel with modern blurred lines that blend indoor-outdoor dining.

Great breakfast spot. We came here intentionally because we had eaten there six months ago when we were in the area. The food and service are always good. Nice Marina view and location.

Thursday night date. $3 valet parking as previously stated, live music Thursday night, beautiful sunset, slightly chilly, offered a heater, amazing views and ambiance, slow service, felt like they're lacking personnel for the crowds, upset levels seem to be for private parties, dogs parked out front. Food was delicious, portions were small to moderate.

Love this place. My only thing that’s a bummer is that they longer serve their cinnamon roll which was the bomb! They have other pastries but not the same.

Delightful lunch with a good friend. Service was outstanding, food was terrific & the setting outside was lovely.
I had the mussels & they were, if not the best I've ever had, certainly among the top three.
And where else do you get valet parking for $3????

We'll be back.

You can’t beat the location! The food is basically average and could be a lot better. Seems that they do have other competition in the area. I would return because of the ambience and view. I do love the setting but the food leaves a lot to be desired.

Beautiful restaurant inside a hotel with a large outdoor patio and a view of the marina. They have a wonderful happy hour with kale chips (amazing!) and great poached shrimp. The sashimi was also excellent, as was the chopped salad. Great place for lunch on a sunny day. The raw bar looks great, too.

I wanted to send this review directly to the manager, but I can't even find the info. The service was terrible. We walked in, seated at an outdoor table on a sunny Sunday afternoon, only to find blasting heaters turned on. We asked for them to be turned off, and no one came, including a waiter. My boyfriend walked over to the hostess and she moved us inside. We sat at our new table for probably a good 10 minutes before I flagged someone down to find our waiter. He said, right away but I think he went back to do...NOTHING. No one came for another few minutes, so I flagged someone else down just to get us water. Another few minutes went by. No one. Finally, after about 20 minutes, we went to the hostess once more and she finally grabbed someone who was, albeit, nice, said she wasn't our waiter. But she took our drink order and sent our designated waiter over later. When he finally showed up, we got no apologies, and he behaved as if we were a nuisance to him. We ordered oysters to start. When he brought them out, he just plopped them down without even telling us which oysters were what. When we did ask him, he had no clue.
Food was fine.
Prices are not cheap so service shouldn't be this horrendous.
My boyfriend and I were super annoyed.

Overall Shade was good . Service , however was slow. One of the members of our party had to leave before her food was ready and they refused to package it “to go “ even after she had paid for it!!! We understand happy hour is not carry out but It was their slow service that caused this Plus it would have been more professional to let us know before just refusing to give her her food . Very shabby and Not ok! No refund either ! When the check arrived it was incorrect and we were overcharged . It took 2 tries before they got it right . These things ruined what should have been a great experience based on the waterfront view and prices.

The ambiance was noisy. The service was doing their best under the circumstances. It was a holiday weekend and the place was very crowded and it was also a very hot day. There was a loud party happening upstairs, above us, that monopolised our area with noise. The hostess staff were extraordinary and helpful. We decided to leave and find a quieter place to enjoy a meal and talk. We wont return to Sea Level.
It also looked like it needed a good scrubbing. Everywhere. With hot, soapy water. The entire outside dining area was dirty and stained.

Food was really good but I was looking forward to their cinnamon roll which is my family favorite and come to find out they removed it cause it was to hard to make. That’s a shame. They replaced it with a coffee cake they suggested which we found dry unless you pour the rum syrup.
