Our server was Janae from Colorado. She made the evening even more special - with great service and wonderful advice on the menu. The food was excellent - with decent wine pairings.
I like that the menu is small, the service was friendly!
The cocktails were just okay but it could have been an off day
Great food, friendly service, great outside atmosphere
Great service and food. Highly recommend to friends.
My friend and I went to have lunch today at 11:30. Our order for appetizers were taken and not once did the waitress Rachel ever come back to check if we wanted our entrees. Another waitress had to come over for us to order another pair of drinks. We gave up on ordering our main dish since our waitress didn’t come to our table. We ended up paying and leaving early. Super disappointing and we never had such horrible service before.
great food, great service, can't wait to go back. :)
The food and service are always fantastic. This is my favorite go-to restaurant.
Great server, lovely patio, & EXCELLENT food! Great value too. Great DIY mimosas with a flight of 4 juices to mix in, the oysters were outstanding and beautifully pre-seasoned. Breakfast sandwich, burrito, and shrimp & grits were outstanding. Great service that provided great recommendations and allowed us to hang out and enjoy our wine after we finished eating without any rush. Will be back!
A must experience for a delicious meal and excellent service while enjoying the fresh air at the beach!
Service was great and patio was lovely but the food was not worth the $$$. I got the fish of the day and it came on a bed of raw peas and string beans which I hate so would not have ordered if that’s how the dish was pictured or described on the menu, which it wasn’t. Also for the price would have liked some effort on the veggies. Otherwise, drinks were good.
Great ambience, terrific food, fantastic service and hospitality. RACHEL IS THE BEST.
Excellent food and a great outdoor experience. Get there for happy hour and save big $$.
Very wonderful Sunday brunch on their sidewalk patio. Been awhile since I last visited but H&P is still going strong. Their oysters, Kushi I think, and Peruvian scallops, fresh, delicious, raw and on ice started my afternoon along with a very nice Bloody Mary. Their Chef Favorite burger with caramelized onions and brios bun grilled to perfection is my #1 burger by the Hermosa strand. Can’t have a burger without their famous Furikake Fries! My partner also enjoyed her Pear&Burrata salad and Ahi on sourdough sandwich…..All served with great attention by Alana. What a cool joint where everyone can sit back and enjoy life!
Great location, great service, and a great meal! Can’t wait to go back
Amazing food and outstanding service. Such a great menu too.
Service was very good. We had a reservation and we were quickly seated. My wife had the claim chowder and said it was very good. The menu is not really to my taste so I had no appetizers. For the main course I had the Fettuccine with Pork Belly and it was good though fairly bland. My wife had the scallops. She said they were okay but not as good as at other places she has had them. It was pricey for what it was but nothing really to complain about or to rave about.
Went back to hook and plow to celebrate our anniversary. The place of our first date. But the service was terrible. The server was not courteous or welcoming at all. Ordered the steak sandwich it was okay, but the bread was burnt and tough to bite through. Ended up cutting the roof of my mouth. Girlfriend said her pork belly pasta was good. Will not be back for a long while.
This casual airy farm to table restaurant offered a respectable menu and choices of beverage. It is located in the heart of Hermosa Beach with plenty of on-street parking. I had Brussel sprouts and Panko avocado for appetizers. Both were excellent. My entre was the salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was not too dry and well seasoned. My wife had the clam chowder and a crab cake on salad which was likewise very good. Our waitress was professional and pleasant.
Our server was wonderful & offered great recommendations.
The food & drinks were amazing - will definitely be back soon!
Birthday. They were accommodating.
This was undoubtedly the best brunch I’ve ever eaten. Such great service and quality of food! Definitely a staple.
Good food, great service - awesome spot for small groups
Great service! Gracious about us being a little late for our reservation, up front with all of the awesome happy hour options, attentive to perfection, we were obsessed with the oysters and specialty fries. Not a bad thing to say, nice work guys!
Amazing lunch! Thank you!
I really love this place. Excellent customer attention, delicious food, personal so attentif with the requirements, this place is so perfect for spend a special day with your family or friends.
Left speechless and satisfied. Brought my friends here and when each dish came out there were “oh my gods” for the presentation as well as each bite. Hidden gem. Would come here for every meal if I could.
We went for Sunday Brunch for the friends from Chicago. Everything was perfect, the food and the service. I will definitely go back for other occasions.
Always a great meal, always great service . We love it here and keep coming back. The food is always consistently good, as is the service. Love all the outdoor eating now.
We went for Mother’s Day and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Food was great service was fantastic and most of all our mom was happy! We’ll definitely be back again!
Came here for the first time for Mother’s Day dinner. We were seated at a comfortable outdoor patio table. The clam chowder is uniquely flavorful, and our main courses of flat iron steak and scallops and mussels were delicious.
Look forward to coming back to try the steak sandwich.
Amazing food and amazing aura we had a great time!!
Food was delicious, ambience was nice. Friendly server. Cute part of town, great place!
Great service and food!
This is one of my favorite places. The food is always excellent. The service charming and attentive. Truly a must when in Hermosa!
Hook & Plow is a wonderful, lunch spot: an iconic California-casual place. Our server was perfect: friendly and efficient, right on top of the service exactly when we expected her. The food - a cup of clam chowder and an Ahi tuna sandwich - was excellent. Both had a unexpected flavor twist that I loved. And the people watching at our front row table was a bonus. I will go back to Hook & Plow when I visit LA again.
Great food and service.
Service was outstanding, lunch was great, this is a “can’t miss” place for dining!
The food is outstanding. Truly. Having lived in San Francisco for 17 years, whee one can get food from just about any corner in the world as well as true farm to fork Americana from Chez Panisse, Hook and Plow holds a very high standard and it shows. The attention to detail was impressive! Each bite kept getting better and when all was done I was a bit sad, but totally satisfied!
H & P always great!!! Enjoyed RB on Sat and HB on Sunday! I prefer HB, but both a great experience!
