I actually feel like the restaurant improved once they moved outside. Kind weird being by the road but still a great meal and experience.

My one complaint is that the menu does not tell you that the steaks are heavily seasoned prior to cooking. The server also did not tell us this. I was disappointed in the taste of my filet mignon because the seasoning was too overpowering. This needs to be clarified on the menu and offered as an option only.

Nice night out, service was fantastic. Food was mediocre. The Burata was really good, the burger and the short rib not so much. The short rib was very fatty and it was alot of work, the burger was just average. Also thought the wine was way too expensive. May go back for another try

we ordered a Medium cooked New York Steak, and it came out Well done and dry.. I admit, we ate like a quarter of the steak before it bothered us (we were starving)... Yet, the manager was understanding enough to give us 1/2 off the price of the steak.

Overall a very memorable experience. We sat outside, it was fairly quiet, at 5:30 pm. We caught the last 1/2 of Happy Hour and enjoyed a dozen great Oysters. Fresh and flavorful! We also had Shishito peppers, and of course, an Old Fashioned and a Beer. The Old Fashioned was very good, although we were surprised it was served with chunks of ice as opposed to one large cube or sphere. We had the scallops and the short ribs. Both were outstanding. Love this restaurant, please support them as much as possible!

My family and I were visiting from out of town and celebrated my in laws birthday at the restaurant. It did not disappoint. We had great service and the food was amazing. My in-laws raved about the surf and turf they said, “ it was the best lobster they have ever had.” Everything that was ordered tasted amazing.

Glad to see this outstanding restaurant is back. And happily surprised to state that it is even better than before. As one who's gone vegetarian, the number of options for me is much greater with the revised menu. All dishes were great, but special recommendation here for the mushroom risotto small plate and eggplant meatballs. Outdoor seating is great. Bartenders remain top notch. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately very hot and the sun shades didn’t protect from sun very well, my phone got super hot. Maybe consider some fans to keep flies away too. It’s hot and flies are everywhere...all restaurants unfortunately.
Food is good but most choices pretty heavy for heat. Should have some lighter brunch options if continue to do brunch. Service was slow and she got our order wrong but she did try to make up for it in the end. We would dine again but I think we will stick to evening.

Heralded as one of the South Bays top Steak Houses, (and it's hard to judge now with Arthur J, Costa, Flemings and so many more) we were excited to go. But were the reservations too easy?Although we arrived at different times, when the entire party was seated, it still seems that they were waiting for more.
I would have had another whisky shile waiting had we been paid attention to, and a few times had to flag down our server.
the food was good, bery good, not Great, but with the cost and competition, maybe a bit more attention to detail will keep this restaurant from going the way of Abigaile and so many other restaurants....

The first time I had dinner at the restaurant, it was great. This time, the scallops were undercooked and cold, the salad dressing oily and the noise level made talking impossible. There are so many other good choices in Hermosa. I won’t go back.
