One of my favs but tonight was a let down. Had the lobster roll which was just added to the menu, disappointed because the lobster was tough. The bread was delicious could have put a little bit more dressing on. Server was not attentive. Not my usual experience here it but the beautiful sunset helped.

Overall, I am satisfied with the whole dinning experience in this place. The water front seating was perfect so our waitress service. I know seafood is expensive but $24 half a dozen oyster is a disappointing. Anyway, if you are there for a special occasion, have some savings ready to spend. The special occasion deserves it.

Drinks were like drinking fruit punch. Food was average at best. Best item we ordered was the burger. Oysters were served with bland cocktail and prepared horseradish, no crackers.

Pandemic, so only outdoor dining is allowed. Prime rib was excellent, as was the service.
I took a star off because the wait time at the front entrance, even with a reservation, was very long. There was standing room only: no where to sit. Also, no handicap access to dining areas. I understand that older places have steps, but it seems strange not to have a ramp somewhere, or a place someone with limited mobility can be let out of a car near the door.

I really like this place, and I’ve been there quite a few times, but this time, it took about an hour for us to get our food. On top of this, once we got it, the chicken (from the chicken and waffles plate) was undercooked. They served me the mimosa on a chipped glass. They also brought me a glass of water that broke and while I was having a sip — hurt my lip and got me soaking wet. The waiter asked me if I was ok and got my number, but didn’t even try to make it up to us for all the inconveniences. And to end the dinner, my friends and I didn’t realize that we were having a chat for a bit too long, so we were asked to leave because they were at “full capacity” and needed the table. I am really disappointed in the whole experience, never have been asked to leave a restaurant before. Didn’t even ask if we wanted to order anything else, since we were staying a bit longer. So disappointing— specially after having raved about this place to my friends. Awful.

If you make a reservation for a certain number of people, they won't let you seat at a table until the entire party is there. It's not like they were so busy and no tables available. That's just poor customer service. Food is not anything special. My friends ordered 3 eggs omelet and I bet they used 3 quail's eggs. The only reason my overall rating is so so is because of the amazing view. If it wasn't for the view, I would never go back. Most often, customer service is the reason to go back to the places, and this is not one of those places.

Whiskey Red's - Marina Del Rey
Responded on November 5, 2020

Hello Yoyo, We apologize for any confusion - the reason we don't seat you until the entire party has arrived is due to the 2 hour limit set on each reservation, once seated the time limit will commence resulting in your guests not enjoying the full bottomless mimosa experience which is why we urge our guests to be on time. Thank you and we'll see you again soon! Demi Sillas Restaurant Manager

Went to Whiskey Reds on Halloween last minute and expected better quality food from the upscale ambiance. The steak was dry and flavorless. The Fish my husband had was dry and tasted like it was just frozen and just warmed up. The potato’s tasted like it dame from the box. The bathroom was filthy. The only good thing was the Oysters and cocktails. I would not recommend coming here for dinner. Drinks and ambiance, yes.

When walking into Whiskey Red's, the atmosphere looks wonderful, and the staff are welcoming. However, once we were seated, there was one negative after another, leading to a quite underwhelming experience. Here's a list in no particular order:

- After ordering, the waiter came back to the table almost 10 minutes later to ask what my wife ordered.
- Food was served lukewarm.
- They were unable to make the first 2 whiskey cocktails (sazerac rye and whiskey sour with an egg) I ordered (odd for a place touting their whiskey and cocktail collection). This process took ~10 minutes for the waiter to go check each time. Then when I settled for the only whiskey cocktail on their drink menu, the waiter just kept pushing a different drink.
- While eating, one of the staff members started to move a large outdoor heater, scraping it loudly across the concrete, until someone came and stopped them.


While none of these are major issues, the whole experience was a letdown, especially in consideration of the prices. If you just want a nice view and atmosphere (other than the occasional metal-on-concrete scraping), this is a great place; otherwise, just go somewhere else.

We went to Whiskey Red's to watch sunset on the patio. We were seated next to a party of four that was EXTREMELY loud, literally yelling and laughing raucously. Our server took or order and we didn't receive our cocktail or bread for ~15 minutes--too long IMO. Our food was really good, which surprised me, since I was under the impression that their food was so-so. My hubby had crab cakes, which he liked, and I had shrimp with the garlic sauce. Both exceeded our expectations. Next time, I will ask to be moved if we're seated by a noisy table.

What a disappointment! The food was awful. I ordered the Hangover Hash. The prime rib was tough and full of fat nervy/connective tissue, inedible. The dish was loaded with greasy smashed tater tots, actually everyone's dish had them. And, they were cold. The Bottomless Mimosas, were bottomless, but the flavors were inconsistent. The waitress tried her best and took back the dish and had the tater tots reheated for someone in the party, but she could only do so much. I guess you pay for the ambiance. We will not be going back.

One of my favorites and it's extremely covid dining friendly. Food is consistently good, staff are efficient welcoming and friendly.
