I am giving this a 5 star rating because the food was off the charts exceptional. I had the butter poached lobster. Not only
was it the best lobster that I have ever eaten the presentation was spectacular. My husband had the New York strip which was done to perfection....medium rare. We also had a very yummy beet salad. The only feedback that I have for this place which has actually been referenced in a multitude of reviews is the lack of wait staff. I would have been fine with the long wait as we weren’t in a rush but our server had an attitude. I find this so weird when their service is tip dependent. We of course are going back because of the food. I am just hoping that we get great service next time.

Outstanding place, almost hate to recommend it to others! Fantastic cocktails, seafood, steak, and appetizers. Great bourbon and rye selection for cocktails, definitely not your usual Makers Mark!

On top of food, it is an elegant while not overwrought setting, and very relaxed atmosphere fostered by decor and service staff. The perfect high end option near the Pier.

My husband I enjoyed the drinks, food and especially the service. The "whiskey guy" was extremely patient, knowledgeable and helpful in selecting the liquor for each of our handcrafted cocktails. The steaks were cooked to perfection. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

Horrible experience - Took 2+ hours to eat a simple Sunday dinner. Had to ask numerous times to have our orders checked. Food was marginal. Cost was crazy - over $200/couple.

My favorite place in Hermosa Beach
Love the old fashioned cocktail - the smoked pork meatballs - steak tartare and the waffle fries!

Definitely worth to visit when you're in the area ...

So warm in cosy inside.

Amazing! Always love going to Tin Vuong's restaurants! My friend from out of town was visiting for work and it happened to be her birthday as well so I knew the perfect place to take her out for dinner! We actually went to Dia de Campo (another amazing Tin Vuong restaurant) around the corner for happy hour margaritas, prior to our dinner reservation. Then we went around the block to Steak and Whisky. Such a great experience. The staff was incredible, the food impeccable! We ordered the house bread, the meatballs, the cavatelli pasta, the lobster Mac and cheese, the brussel sprouts and the waffle fries. Everything was delicious. We cleaned each dish. After we stuffed our bellies, the easy on the eyes staff were nice enough to have a dessert with candle for my friend for her birthday. Needless to say, she enjoyed every moment. Highly recommend any of Tin's restaurants for a guaranteed food party in your mouth! Do it!! You won't regret it!

Great selection of whisky and whiskey and some nice pairing in the flight menu. Steaks were high quality meat but cooking presentation was average. I've done better on my Weber and my Traeger. Good number and variety of options on menu for non steak meals. Safe bet for a nice client dinner. Casual atmosphere.

Our server never checked on us, water ran dry, weren't asked if we wanted a second round of drinks. My steak prime @NY, was overcooked (ordered med rare, it showed up med/well done). My boyfriend ordered a whiskey tasting flight. 2 of the 4 glasses had wrong whiskey. The waiter didn't even know what was supposed to be poured. They were out of one, so he just brought the wrong glass and gave it to us without a choice. It was terrible. The staff kept going out front, while we sat at our table, wondering if anyone was going to serve us. It was expensive and very lacking in good service.

Food was good. Our steaks were cooked just right and flavorful. Side dishes were also tasty. Only downside was the service. Too many “miscommunications” concerning our orders and the bill. But they took a glass of wine and coffee off the bill for our trouble so all’s well that ends well.

Overall a nice restaurant. Food is pricey for what you get. I’ve had much better for much less.
It’s very noisy despite the small size.
The server was nice, but a little impatient. Didn’t care much to explain menu items or make drink recommendations.
Wait staff was attentive but clueless...they’d stop to ask how they can help, but bring the wrong item.

Food was sub-par—only one appetizer out of 2 apps and 2 entrees was good.
Was waited on by the bartender who was absent whenever we needed something or expected someone to check if we needed anything. Therefore, we didn’t have sufficient water, and we would have easily ordered another round of drinks, most likely two more.
So the restaurant lost out on easy money, we as customers went unsatisfied, and S&W will lose out on both repeat and referral business.
To top it all off, Open Table was informed the reservation was a no show, and it took no small effort to ensure the record was corrected. This just added to the notion of a waste of a night out, as well as the disappointment in this restaurant.

Second visit, first was spectacular but this time, not so much. Waiter pushed naked New York steaks over any other on menu. Disappointed in amount of gristle & degree of toughness. However the flavor was very good, as described. Whisky cocktails were excellent & hard to beat when hand-crafted.
