Second time here, and each time some things are great and others just aren't. My husband ordered steak and it was not good. Don't know if we are willing to give it another try.

We enjoyed the food, but service lacked the grace and elegance of a fine dining experience. We felt rushed and unattended. Room was far too noisy. That in addition to the difficulty of parking in Manhattan Beach makes us sad to say we will not be returning.

Always a wonderful evening out at Slay! Greeted with a smile at the door and how fun to see a spectacular list of holiday cheer choices inside the menu! But boy was the Slay Sangiovese amazing! Then finished off with the Key Lime Brûlée! Perfect way to start the holidays! ps all entrees are amazing!

We go to Slay maybe once a month but this was a special occasion: my wife’s birthday. We had a party of three and didn’t specify outside when I made the reservation. They managed to squeeze us in outside. We had great service, great food, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Slay is one of the few restaurants in Manhattan Beach where the owner is almost always there making sure everything is always running smoothly. Highly recommended.

The food was awful. My Bibb salad was inedible. You would think when I barely ate 2 bites the server might have asked, but no. And then I said it was really disappointing and no apology or anything. Chicken park looked like it was being served in a cafeteria. Pasta in side was a bowl of penne. My husband's scallops were likewise awful. Just an incredibly bad meal. Ambience was nice though. Maybe next tome we will just sit there and have a cocktail😀

The food was delicious. It seemed like they were still figuring things out even though they have been opened for a while. Mostly just the server knowing what the specials were and the service being on the slower side.

Had a nice evening with my wife. I ate the stuffed pork chop. It was good, like a Thanksgiving serving. The staff was great. My wife enjoyed her rack of lamb as well. Good place to have a nice dinner.

Another perfect dinner at Slay as we have come to expect! The grapefruit Negroni and Kumiai Oysters were spot on to start and we enjoyed the Filet and Sole, and a couple glasses of wine from their ample list - both of our entrees were the finest quality, perfectly cooked and delicious. Tried the twice baked cheddar and chive potato as a side for the first time and it was awesome! Finished with a slice of the banana cream pie with chocolate lined fresh baked crust! Yum! Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, friendly but discrete. Great night out!

Dinner at Slays before a concert at the Forum - as its a straight shoot across town from Manhattan Beach. Food was delicious - apple stuffed pork chop was awesome!! And the Pumpkin Bread Pudding was perfect - actually more like Pumpkin French Toast — just the right amount and not too heavy! Highly recommend!

We loved Slays, such a nice restaurant. The service was impeccable, I haven't felt special in a while, but everyone went above and beyond to make sure we were having a nice dinner. Even the chef/owner came to our table to inquiry if things were ok. The handcrafted drinks were superb, please try their Manhattan. Also, their coffee rubbed ribeye was outstanding. We're going back next week and we'll be regulars for sure.

We celebrated our anniversary dinner at Slay, it was our second time and it was as good as the first time. It is a bit pricy but worth it. We shared the Steak Tartare, Oysters, Panko crusted Sole. The food was perfect and service was very attentive. I had a Strawberry Bond Martini and my wife the Slay Chardonnay. Very happy with the drinks. We would have had a desert but unfortunately they did not have a non-dairy option at the time. Other than that it was a great evening and I am sure we will return.

This is a neighborhood gem for special occasions. The service was outstanding. I ordered the filet which came with 1/2 a twice baked potato and vegetables. The filet was perfectly cooked. The potato could have been warmer. The “vegetables” consisted of a scoop of steamed cauliflower. The plate could have used a little green. They will soon lose some of their outside seating, due to a change in city laws regarding use of parking spots for outside dining. Reservations recommended, especially on the weekends.

The food was fantastic, our server gracious; however quite surprised at the $10 add on to the bill for asking for a sample of two other sauces for the fillet steak. Originally asked for steak sauce and was offered mushroom or
peppercorn sauces, asked for a little sample of each. There was no mention of cost. For a $10. charge I was left with not good feelings. This was coupled with ordering the duck breast only to be told they did not have it available. We did have a 4:30pm very early dinner reservation but the staff should know what is and is not available. Since I really enjoy the food quality and preparation style at both of David Slay’s restaurants in Manhattan Beach. I am sad to be disappointed with such a trivial cost item.

In general, the service was slow. We received our salad and appetizer before our wine which we ordered first. It took forever to receive our dessert.

The meat was not good. The steak frites were chewy and the pork chop had no taste. It seemed to be overpowered by the apple stuffing.
