My wife's steak was overcooked and had to be taken back. I ordered my Filet Medium Rare and it was more medium. Service was slow especially on drinks

We were seated in the bar area, which is prefectly fine for adults. Our party was two adults and one 12 year old and one 14 year old.

I suggest you change this policy. Do not seat children in the bar area!

I think the food is just OK. I ordered grilled swordfish and I want to do with tartar sauce. It wasn't on my plate so I had to wait for it after I receive my food. I think the bread is delicious. Another good thing about going for lunch is they have two hour free parking.

We had 18 people in our party. They served our food very quickly and the check came even faster. We sincerely appreciate receiving separate checks so quickly. Often time, restaurants will take a very slow time serving a large group and even longer getting our separate checks. This place was spot on and gave great service and rapid separate checks.

Very different from Manhattan Beach Rock'n Fish (which we LOVE) - in fact food and ambience is like a completely different restaurant. No baked potatoes, no fish any way you like it with two sides. Service good. Food was so-so.

Food was great but I felt like I was rushed I asked the waiter after we ordered appetizers to slow down the main course so we can relax . And the main course came before we even finished our appetizer as her than that everything was good.

Years ago the steaks were better, the lobster tail was bigger and the music was not defeaning. We had to yell to each other to have a conversation. Music way too loud. And, it has nothing to do with age. I'm a young and we ate our food rather fast so we could leave.

It's a shame.
Thank you.

If you’re attending a Staples event and can’t get in anywhere else, this is ok. Service was so slow and servers seemed to be going in 10different directions at one time. Food was mixed. Some had good dishes and one couldn’t eat his.

No reason to go out of your way unless you're going to an event at Staples. Our waiter knew the BUZZ words but when we convened to him that the rib- eye steak was to fatty and thin he didn't act like he knew what we were saying. The Manhattan Beach location is worth your while, not downtown

Jodie was an amazing server who made sure that we got our food in a timely manner because we had a group of seven going to the concert Thu night. She was lovely. So was the person at the bar, but i could not catch her name. My friend had a gluten-free option and enjoyed it, others liked the cioppino and hamburger, and my salad with chicken was delicious. Usually the chicken is basic when you add to a salad, but mine was well seasoned and cooked. A good pre-concert choice at LA Live!

I went here with my fiancé for an anniversary dinner. I got the Rock'n Surf & Turf that came with a steak and lobster and she got the Bistro Style Cioppino that came with fish shrimp and clams. We both really liked our meals. For drinks I got the Navy Grog which is very good if you like rum and she got the Pear-fect martini which she said was very tasty. The waitress that we had was very nice and even hooked us up with the wifi password lol. I seen the waitress walk by and excused myself from my fiancé to go to the "bathroom" and asked the waitress if she could make something with a chocolate cake saying "Happy Anniversary" and she was able to make that happen. Overall the food and drink were great, the meals are a bit pricey but they don't disappoint.
