Very good food. Our waitress was outstanding. The prices are a bit high. The bar is cramped.

We were there for a birthday, they had run out of a few options. The server seemed like she may have had too many tables to serve as she always seemed flustered, but she worked hard, just didn’t see that each table got the same level of service.

Mediocre at best. The portion of Ahi Tuna was very small for the price, and was over cooked. Definitely not a great experience.

My husband and I came up to Manhattan Beach to visit our son and we ended up having lunch at Rock N Fish. It was Sunday at 1 pm and the restaurant was cranking! We had a reservation, several people were waiting for a table but they didn't seem to mind. Guests were coming and going the entire time we were there. Definitely a local crowd with families but plenty of tourists mixed in. We all three had the fish tacos with different sides. We all enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The menu is unique with a variety of health options. My only negative was none of their salads were a "lettuce" based salad. I would definitely like to see that added. Other than that the atmosphere was fun and we will be back again!

The seating atmosphere was vibreant. The seating was roomy for a crowded restaurant. We were served promptly. Everyone really liked their dinner. The waitress was totally attentive and really friendly. The wine pours were generous and the wines by the glass were good. We are going again!

This was a pleasant dining experience, the seafood selection was decent, and the server nicely accommodated tweaks to the preparation that suited our needs. The calamari appetizer was a nice sized portion and the fish tacos were fresh and tasty. Staff were friendly. My only gripe was we visited during the holiday season and parking was a bear.

 (Chicago)·Dined on December 15, 2017

I was disappointed in our experience at this restaurant. There were 8 of us who'd travelled from across the country (IL, IA, GA,MN) for a work event. We hadn't seen each other in a long time and looked forward to spending some special time together outside of the work environment. Our food was ok - probably 3 out of 5 stars. What was really disappointing was our server and service. She seemed irritated by having been given our table. She was inattentive throughout, it was difficult to get a drink refill, she took forever to take our orders, etc. She just seemed irritated with us and as if we were wasting her time. I paid the over over $400 bill and left her 20% out of habit, so she got $70 for the little attention she gave us. I didn't let her know we were all out of town and had never eaten here before. I shouldn't have had to. Doubt I'll be back if I find myself back in Manhattan Beach.

What a great find. Had coconut shrimp which was great, but I wish I did not order them since the second course would have been enough. THE Lobster roll!!!! Incredible fresh and loaded with lobster, accompanied with home made potato chips and a side o your choice. Great chef!

This was our first time at RockNFish and the food and service were both outstanding. We will definitely be returning here in the very near future. They made our daughters birthday feel like a very special event and we were so pleased. Its not every day that you find a place that goes above and beyond to please its customers. Great place!

 (San Diego)·Dined on November 19, 2017

Celebrated our friends birthday, we drove up from San Diego to celebrate. The food was Amazing, the Apps; grilled artichoke and calamari were both delicious, to our dinners. I had the seared Ahi which was fabulous, two others had the Cioppino that was incredible and final dish was the grilled swordfish that was spot on! Drinks were very good but pricey. They let us bring a special dessert in for our friends (one has Celiac) took it and placed on platter with a candle for and delivered for our birthday celebration. They also brought a house creme brulee for the birthday boy. Overall outstanding and cant wait to go back next time we are in Manhattan beach.

We were celebrating my birthday. Everyone there wished me a happy birthday and I got a free dessert (although Jose, our waiter, said they won't let him sing to me). The salmon was cooked perfectly - it melted in you mouth! I substituted sides to get what I wanted and that was not a problem. Since the free dessert is not gluten-free (bread pudding and ice cream), I asked if we could have fresh fruit instead and that was not a problem, either. A perfect end to a great meal.

Informed establishment ahead of time that dinner would be to celebrate a special occasion. They remembered.

Although the hostess initially tried to seat us outside, we persisted and eventually were seated at a table for two upstairs overlooking the bar and diners on the first level. Great view and privacy because there was only one other table with patrons upstairs.

Our sever, Arracelli provided us with personalized attention, including modifying our orders and checking on us frequently without being annoying. Her attentiveness and personal charm were outstanding!

And to top off our great evening, the restaurant let us choose a free desert, which was delivered with a (edible) personal message written on the plate. Very nice touch.

This was my second visit, and I could not have been more pleased. I plan to go again very soon.
